I can still remember how my friends and I developed a fanfiction which casted our selves and our korean biases. Specifically CNBlue’s Lee Jonghyun played a vampire role and me as a young teacher in a university. After around 2 years we were just so surprised that it is working to come true! Last Feb 9 a lot of buzz came from korean news outlets and blogs that Jonghyun is being courted to star in a korean drama about vampires and humans in a high school setting. OMG! ❤ It’s as if they knew of our dream. 😛
It has been reported that Jonghyun is potentially to star in a KBS korean drama entitled Orange Marmalade. FNC Entertainment stated that he is currently in consideration of the role though nothing has been decided yet. It has also been said that the talks are in its final stages.
Orange Marmalade is romantic fantasy drama (based on a webtoon of the same title) of Baek Ma Ri, a vampire who hides her true identitiy as she transfers to a new school where she will fall in love with the popular high school boy Jung Jae Min. Yeo Jin Goo (The Moon Embracing the Sun, Hwayi, Missing You) is being reported offered the lead role (while Jonghyun will play the supporting role) with nothing final as of yet too.
If Jonghyun will accept the offer it will be his comeback in the dramaland after his successful portrayal of “Colin” in A Gentleman’s Dignity. I really can’t wait (and I know a lot of fans too) for it to be official. I did some reserach on the possible supporting character he might take and I hope he would really be a vampire soon in the character of “Han Si Hoo”, a vampire who likes Baek Ma Ri, wahhh its a love triangle and I’m sure kdrama fans hearts will have a hard time choosing between a human and a vampire, hahahaha. 🙂 So let’s wait and see if a Burning Vampire will be a reality, hihihi. ❤
Orange Marmalade is set to follow Spy and target to air in May. At least when my seoulmate Kim Jaejoong enlists I will still be happy ahahaha. 🙂 Aja!
And this is confirmed now and they are filming already. #WishComeTrue ❤
