J.Y. Park revealed that he had a different actor in mind for Kim Soo Hyun's role in KBS drama 'Dream High'!


On the May 11 airing of 'Radio Star', J.Y. Park shared the behind story of the drama he wrote, saying he actually wanted G.Soul to play the male lead.

J.Y. Park explained, "I thought it would be better for G.Soul to gain success with 'Dream High' and then go over to the U.S again, but I think he was hesitant about it because I was the one who wrote it.G.Soul responded, "I denied it because I was preparing to debut as a singer, not an actor." 


During that time period, G.Soul was preparing to debut in the U.S, but failed do so because of various difficulties. In fact, he was one of JYPE's longest trainee. Fortunately, he is now gaining success with his vocal talent.


Can you imagine G.Soul in 'Dream High'?

    I think G.Soul suits a singer more anyway.

    Good call on G.Soul. I can't imagine any other actor playing Kim Soo Hyun's character any better than he did. Plus, I think it was KSH's breakthrough role, wasn't it? :D

    lol G.Soul would not have been a good match with Suzy and especially playing the part of someone who couldn't really sing. Plus I love Kim So Hyun because of Dream High so fate is fate.

    I think it was a good choice on his part. It seems like he didn't really want the typical "idol life" and spending more time in the US has allowed him more freedom as an artist. I absolutely loved his debut album.
