Hyun Joong in 'You are my pet' and 'Dream Team Season 2'


Hyun Joong will be appearing on TV again, this time through the drama 'You are my pet' as well as on the variety show 'Set Off Dream Team, Season 2'.

Hyun Joong, who has been a big fan of the programme, volunteered to participate in the show. His competitive spirit is also expected to shine throughout the various challenges featured on the show which will be aired on the 15th.

He has also been casted as Kang In Ho, the main lead, in the Japanese manga based drama 'You are my pet'. This is the Korean adaptation of the Japanese drama 'Kimi Wa Petto', which starred Matsumoto Jun, who incidentally was also the main lead in 'Hana Yori Dango', the Japanese version of Hyun Joong's first idol drama KPN.

Representatives from his agency stated that as the contract has not been finalized yet, they are unable to make any definitive response as of yet.

Ooh nice. I hope this role allows him to stray a little from the expression-less and quiet JiHoo. Set Off Dream Team sounds like the perfect show for KHJ and his crazy love of games and competition. Is he going to be on the whole season or just one episode?

Oooh You are my pet? Interesting! I can't wait to watch it if he's going to star in it! The main role has really a different kind of personality and I hope the leading lady will be great too! so yeah, goodluck to him with that as well on Dream Team 2!:)

i've watched kimi wa petto before and i think i'll watch the korean version because hyun joong might be fun in there. **GriN** i seldom watch other version of drama and always go for the first version. hence i don't watch BOF since the first version is MG. anyway.. i'll make exception for you are my pet. **AnticipatinG**

ohh... so korean ver. of Kimi wa Petto is going to be a drama? I thought it was supposed to be a movie. I only have read the manga but...I don't know how to feel about this. On one hand I think it would be an interesting role but it's gonna be weird seeing him act so cute all the time (when he was in BOF, I laughed at his character a lot...it took me half the episodes to get used to it XD;) but on another I don't want him to go back to that HJ who was a stressful fainting stick(IMO, it took him a long time to return to a rather healthy state again) I wish him the best either way.

i'm not really sure if KHJ can do justice to that role, i'm sorry but i saw his BOF and he looks really stiff on there. Jun matsumoto is quite a veteran actor, and he was really good in KIMIWAPETO. KHJ is best on reality shows i think. just my 2 cents.

aww but wat if he faints again? :O

@hyerin -- I agree KHJ was really stiff in BOF... but I think that was partly because the character of Yoon JiHoo was so emotionless... and also because maybe KHJ wasn't comfortable saying a lot of those lines. Many awkward moments. But KHJ does have the capacity to be laughy and cutesy, as we saw in WGM..

Also.. I agree with the worries about his health. Hopefully he learned a lesson from BOF about how to take care of his body during filming...

He's going to play Momo? Ahh...I love Momo. This role will really help him shred his BOF image. I also have doubts whether or not he's able to bring Momo's character to life but I will definitely watch for Hyun Joong.

I hope he doesn't faint again as well.
