Hyun Joong decided for "It Started With A Kiss"

Group SS501's Kim Hyun Joong has been chosen as the final lead for 'It started with a kiss' / 'Mischievous kiss'.

Kim Hyun Joong's side Keyeast has revealed that they successfully finished discussions with the drama's production company Group Eight recently. However, although Kim Hyun Joong has not had signed the papers with Group Eight, they have finished and confirmed his partake in the drama. In awhile more, Group Eight will be releasing official notice of this.

To Kim Hyun Joong's participation in this drama, he has been on a fiery go with many other strong rivals right until the end, with considered nominees like CN Blue's Jung Yong Hwa and DBSG's ChangMin. Though ChangMin was the final consideration along side Kim Hyun Joong right until the final decision, and that his agency SM Entertainment did meet up with Group Eight with quite a keen stand, MBC's production company has finally taken a firm stand with Kim Hyun Joong as the choice for male protagonist.

Kim Hyun Joong's character name will be Baek Seung Jo in the drama, and he plays a genius who has never failed in getting a Number 1 across the entire school who particularly excels in physical education and cooking, not just that, he is also a perfect guy who knows almost every thing under the sky. He will be falling in love with a simple girl Moon Ha Ni (undecided for choice) who has never done anything right, on the contrary to him.

The drama's production company felt that Kim Hyun Joong's Yoon JiHoo in Boys over Flowers is somewhat similar to this Baek Seung Jo of 'It started with a kiss'. Though that being the case, Yoon Ji Hoo was a character very sweet and loving, whereas Baek Seung Jo is one who is cocky and proud, totally on the stark end.

As for the female lead Moon Ha Ni, it hasn't been decided as of yet. Considered nominee Park Bo Young is facing contract issues with agency company, so her participation will be considered with reservations. As to actress Park Shin Hye, KARA's Han Seung Yeon, f(x)'s Sulli have all been undergoing auditions for the role, which was gaining about a huge amount of attention after this was known.

As to the fact that Kim Hyun Joong has once again taken on the role of a popular manhwa lead, he will be receiving much attention on him as to whether or not he will be able to successfully pull it off again.

Korean version of 'It started with a kiss' has been receiving enthusiastic anticipation from netizens.

'It started with a kiss' will begin airing after 'Road Number One' drama on MBC in latter half of year.

So it's finally decided. I'm getting ahead of myself, I actually am feeling excited about this new drama. With what little I know of the plot, I can actually begin to imagine Leader acting the scenes out. Aahh, whoever they decide to play the female lead, I hope they'd share a good chemistry on screen. On a different note, I need more SS501 news!!!

I am guessing that the second male lead will be given to ChangMin (second prize/consolation prize?).
