It would be an understatement to say that Kim Seon Ho's star shone bright in the tvN K-drama Start-Up. He was such a real game-changer that so many fans were rallying for the second lead to finally get the girl once and for all. And while Han Ji-pyeong may not have ended up with Seo Dal-mi (Bae Suzy) in the drama, Kim Seon Ho still won over our hearts in real life.
That said, it's no surprise that so many offers are already lined up to become his next big project after the success of Start-Up, and his fans are waiting with bated breath to find out when we'll see him on our screens once again and who will be his lucky leading lady this time around!
So far, two K-drama actresses we love have been rumored to be his next on-screen partner:
1. Kim Ji Won
In November, news of Kim Seon Ho reviewing the script for an upcoming tvN K-drama titled Link made rounds on the internet. The fantasy romance and mystery series, which will be written by Suspicious Partner's Kwon Ki Young, will supposedly feature the actor as chef Eun Gye Hoon, who will set up a restaurant in the town where his twin sister went missing two decades ago.
According to some rumors, Kim Ji Won—who's set to star in Netflix's Lovestruck in the City alongside Ji Chang Wook—is the leading lady being eyed for the project to play the role of Noh Da Hyun, a girl who shares a strange connection with the male lead through his emotions.
2. Shin Min Ah
Earlier today, December 21, Kim Seon Ho's agency, SALT Entertainmant, has confirmed that he's "positively considering the offer" to star in the K-drama Mr. Hong, which will be a remake of the 2004 romantic comedy film that starred Kim Joo Hyuk and Uhm Jung Hwa. Should he accept, he'll play the role of Hong Doo Shik, "a guy who makes a living by taking on all sorts of odd jobs around town."
According to a report by Soompi, Shin Min Ah—best known for K-dramas such as My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, Oh My Venus, and Chief of Staff—is in talks to star as the female lead. Her agency, AM Entertainment, confirmed she's currently reviewing the offer. And if things work out, she'll take on the role of Yoon Hye Jin, a dentist with beauty and brains who loves shopping but has a warm heart.
Right now, everything's still pretty much up in the air. But while nothing has been confirmed yet, we want to hear from you!
