SS501 Kim Hyun Joong to play Rui

SS501 member Kim Hyun Joong was casted as the F4 member Hanazawa Rui in the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, which is scheduled to be broadcast via KBS 2TV in the first half of 2009. The Korean name for Rui has not been set yet.

This will be the third time the Japanese manga will be turned into a drama series. The first one was a Taiwanese version, which was aired in 2001, and the other was a Japanese one, which was broadcast in 2005.

According to an official from Group Eight, the production house in-charge of the drama, Kim Hyun Joong was selected to play Rui because he was deemed suited for the character. The decision was based from his performance in the MBC program “We’re Married,” where Kim Hyun Joong is being coupled with singer Hwangbo.

Meanwhile, at the moment, the 3 actors, who will play the other members of F4, are yet to be finalized.

  7. I actually don’t mind him being rui…he suits it!

  8. hmm…. is this a new casting?? cause from wat i know n read before… isnt heechul n siwon chosen as the main cast too??? hmmm.. nvm.. haha

  9. Thanks! for this new!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s fantastic! Joong to play my Rui!!!!!… my favorite character!

    I am very happy about it!

  10. i am going to die in happiness because i just love hana yori dango so much!

  11. i think he was chosen because he LOOKS like the japanese actor who played RUI in the original hana yori dango!

  12. nah..he doesnt look like shun oguri..

    he is more HOT than oguri (:
    and yes,he suits RUI (:

    i watched taiwan version of hana yori dango,jap too..

  16. Oh no ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ive just finished watching the Japanese version. I’d be so unhappy if he plays Rui since he’s no whee near as hot as Shun Oguri! >.< sorry to say. Mehhhh, the Japanese ver. are really unbeatable…

  17. i love you from iran park joung min and hyun joong

  19. hanazawa rui!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    omfg!!!!! it was funny…cause i imagined Hyunjoong as the korean version of RUI and guess what!!!! it really did happen!!!!!!! omfg!!! i can’t wait!!!!!!!!

    shun oguri did an excellent job and i know kim hyunjoong will too!!!!

  20. Come on!
    another HYD version?
    We had taiwanese version, a good Japanese version and another Korean version?
    why the repeated story with different actors?

    Why not created a new storyline, a new drama which everyone loves with HYun Joong and other SS501 members? If Japan and Taiwan can create idol drama, KOrea can also!

    why a replica of another HYD production?
    ARRGHHHH!!!!! (stomp my foot out of frustration)

    NOOOO!!! NOOOO!!!! NOOOO!!!!!NOOOO!!!!!!

  21. waaaaaaaa .. I’m waiting to see the korean HANA YORI DANGO ..

    the japanes HANA YORI DANGO drama is soOo amazing I hope the korean, too ..
    ((Sure it will be amazing because HyeonJoong is acting in the drama ^^))

    right ??
    hhhhhhhhh .

    oppa, Aja Aja fighting .. =>

    I hope that will cheer him up !!

  22. waaaa, I’m waiting to see the korean HANA YORI DANGO ..

    the japanes HANA YORI DANGO is soOo amazing I hope the korean too ..

    ((sure it will be amazing because HyeonJoong oppa will be acting in the drama))

    right ?? ^^

  23. Actually, it will be the 4th time. the first time was a japanese one in the late 90s with the doctor from 1 liter of tears as rui. the 2nd time was a taiwanese one called meteor garden, and you guys already know that the 3rd one was the one with oguri shun, inou mao, matsujun.

  24. I guess he is perfectly suited for the role. As soon as I heard he is acting in korean version of hana yori dango, I thought he can only be Rui..
