Kim Seon-ho is definitely on everyone's radar after his scene-stealing act as Han Ji-pyeong in Start-Up. While there were reports of him being offered tvN drama Link, Newsen recently revealed that the 34-year-old actor is in talks to play the male lead in another upcoming tvN series, which is the remake of the 2004 romantic comedy Mr. Hong starring Kim Joo-hyuk and Uhm Jung-hwa.

"Kim Seon-ho is positively considering the offer to star in the new drama Mr. Hong (working title)," the actor's agency Salt Entertainment confirmed, via Soompi. On the other hand, YTN disclosed that Oh My Venus star Shin Min-ah is also in talks to play the female lead in Mr. Hong. "Shin Min-ah is positively reviewing the new drama Mr. Hong (working title)," the 36-year-old actress' agency AM Entertainment confirmed. If the pair signs on to the project, this is the first time we will see Seon-ho and Shin Min-ah in a drama together. 

For the unversed, Mr. Hong's storyline is based on Hong Doo-shik (Joo-hyuk), a guy who takes on all sorts of odd jobs around town to make a living and Yoon Hye-jin (Jung-hwa), a dentist from Seoul who nobly opens a clinic in the same town as Doo-shik.

In the drama remake, Seon-ho as Doo-shik aka the neighbourhood hero Mr. Hong will be someone who loves involving himself in every situation just to help people out. Doo-shik only accepts minimum wages for his odd jobs and also speaks informally to elderly and children alike. Doo-shik is a mysterious man as various rumours circulate about why he was missing for a few years. On the other hand, Min-ah as Hye-jin is a confident woman with both beauty and brains. While Hye-jin loves shopping and can even appear materialistic, she has a warm heart and regularly donates offering her support to those in need.

Anonymous : I recently became a Kim Seon-ho fan after watching Start Up and have since watched his two other movies. I am anxiously awaiting to see his next project. His acting reminds me of the great American actor, Cary Grant. Both are great dramatic and comedic actors.
