Astro Member Cha Eun Woo in Talks to Join Shin Se Kyung for Sageuk Drama Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung


I’m going to ask fans of Astro and/or viewers who watched My ID is a Gangnam Beauty to tell me whether idol-turning-actor Cha Eun Woo is good at the latter. I ask because he’s just been offered the leading man role in the upcoming sageuk drama Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung which will likely star Shin Se Kyung. My only knowledge of Cha Eun Woo is that he’s an idol who also got a leading man role seemingly straightaways after branching into acting, and also fans seem to think he’s the shizniz in looks but he just looks like your garden variety good looking K-idol. If he’s a good actor or has potential then this casting could work but Shin Se Kyung is herself a very hit-and-miss actress and when she’s involved I think the effort should be made to cast stronger than her leading men. Oh wells, there’s going to be a lot of visuals to drool over in Rookie Historian is this casting pans out.
