RUMOR: IU and Cha Eun Woo selected as the potential leads for upcoming webtoon-based drama
As two of the most popular idol-turned actors today, what will the collaboration between Cha Eun Woo and IU look like?
On November 4, through a survey, two popular singer-turned actors, IU and Cha Eun Woo, were selected to be the potential leads for the upcoming drama adapted from webtoon of the same name, Little Rain. If this becomes a reality, this drama will be the first-ever on-screen collaboration of this “visual duo”.
As two of the most well-known actors who started out as singers, although there is no official casting news yet, it still garners much attention on social media. However, since the storyline of the drama sounds quite “cheesy” and both Cha Eun Woo and IU have received mixed reactions to their acting skills, some netizens have expressed their concern rather than excitement. Specifically, while IU has been acknowledged for her improvements in acting for not long, Cha Eun Woo always sparks controversy over his acting. According to some viewers, IU probably should act alongside someone with good acting skills, instead of “carrying” the drama because her male co-star is lacking.
- But both of them are not good at acting at all
- I don’t think they will have good chemistry
- Cha Eun Woo should learn more acting before taking on a new project
- Both of them are bad at acting. They will destroy it.
- IU should act with someone who is better than her. Cha Eun Woo should learn more about acting.
- The producer has made a silly decision!
Little Rain is a fantasy webtoon that tells the life of a girl named Lisa. Lisa lives an unhappy and lonely life with Rain – her cat. Unknowingly one day, a guardian angel entered her cat’s body, since then, that angel has always been there to help Lisa. If the two take on the roles, IU will play the role of Lisa, and Cha Eun Woo will play the guardian angel.
