[This week’s Issue] Yoon Eun Hye’s comeback with “Take Care Of Agasshi”, making a return to TV after 2 years
Yoon Eun Hye (25) and her power as the "successful-hit-maker" is once again gathering much attention. When MBC drama "Triple" held its first broadcast on the 11th of June, failing with far less than expected results, YEH has been further uplifted as a consequence.
“Triple” had gained much interest when PD Lee Yun Jung and script writer Lee Jung Ah decided to join forces once again after working together on MBC’s “Coffee Prince”, which recorded high ratings with Yoon Eun Hye as the lead. However, the drama has been unable to ward off its single digit ratings as well as failing to stir sympathy from the viewers.( Collapse )original korean article link:

Additionally, apart from the aforementioned drama, the male actors who have acted alongside Yoon Eun Hye have all been unable to reach the same level of success with their following respective projects.
When YEH was a former member of the female group Baby Vox, compared to the other members of the group, not only did YEH not receive much attention, she didn’t stand out from the others. However, after YEH shifted her career into acting, her walk and journey has been strikingly impressive.◆◆Drama ratings-guarantor “Hit Maker”◆◆
When hit-star PD, Hwang In Roe cast Yoon Eun Hye as the lead actress in MBC’s “Goong” (2006), many were speculating the PD’s decision and felt doubtful. However, after clearing away all the top stars and taking the role of the bright and wacky student-turned-nation’s princess Shin Chae Kyung, whom YEH performed and completed well above our expectations.
Hereafter, Yoon Eun Hye’s decision to star in KBS2TV’s “The Vineyard Man” (2006) was a risky choice. There was no guarantee of good ratings against MBC’s “Jumong”, commonly referred to as the nation’s drama, which shared the same broadcasting time slot. Nevertheless, YEH came out successful once again. With YEH’s very own tailored style of acting, she was able to lead the drama with ‘herculean strength’ to a 15% viewership rating.
With MBC’s “Coffee Prince 1st Shop”, Yoon Eun Hye marked her 3rd consecutive hit in a row, setting up an amazing record. With Yoon Eun Hye’s free and unpretentious acting of cross-dressing Go Eun Chan, the drama generated a syndrome and clearly hit success.◆◆Co-stars into Top Stars… ‘Hoonnam (Warm-Guy) Maker’◆◆
(Hoonnam: a guy who’s not attractive at first sight, but his warmth and appeal comes through the more you see him.)
Through Yoon Eun Hye’s ability in amplifying her fellow male co-stars, she is commonly acknowledged as the ‘hoonnam maker’.
MBC Joo Ji Hoon (27) who collaborated with YEH in MBC’s “Goong” is a prime example. Joo Ji Hoon who was originally a model, firmly positioned himself as an actor after his adaptation of Lee Shin, the refined and stylish Crown Prince.
KBS2 Additionally, Oh Man Seok (33) also got his name known, working alongside YEH as her leading man. Oh Man Seok, a star in the Musical sphere, had moved on to TV through MBC’s “Shindon” but was unable to sustain himself in the new field. However, after his performance as the sincere country man ‘Jang Taek Ki’ in KBS2’s “The Vineyard Man”, Oh Man Seok was able to project his name as a drama’s lead actor with confidence.
Despite receiving early interest with his good looks and soaring height, Gong Yoo (28) didn’t possess a representative piece of work. But through MBC’s “Coffee Prince 1st Shop”, Gong Yoo found himself securing many female fans as well as finally stepping up as a top star.
Lee Sun Kyun (33) who also co-starred [in “Coffee Prince”] can also fall under the same category. After gaining recognition of his acting through theatre performances, Lee Sun Kyun started getting noticed after his part in MBC’s “White Tower”. Afterwards, his performance in “Coffee Prince” which showcased his smooth unique voice and charisma brought him forward as a conventional star.
Like this, all of YEH’s leading men have ascended to a level of top stardom, shining along the way. However, according to critical observation, it has been stated that these actors have not quite been able to reach the same level of success or regard in their respective follow up projects.◆◆A return to TV after 2 years… Will a 4th successive hit run be possible?◆◆
Yoon Eun Hye will be making her official comeback after 2 years, in August with KBS2TV’s “Take Care Of Agashi” formerly called (Lady Castle). Additionally, as a result of the YEH’s recognition as one of the top actresses both in name and in actuality, actor Yoon Sang Hyun, who will be acting alongside YEH, is already being labeled as ‘Yoon Eun Hye’s Man’.
Yoon Sang Hyun is currently enjoying high popularity after gaining many fans through his performance as ‘Tae Bong’ in MBC’s “Queen of Housewives” which ended in May.
As a result, the coming together of ‘successful-hit-guarantor’ top star Yoon Eun Hye and Yoon Sang Hyun who is glorifying in is heydays through ‘Tae Bong’, is garnering much attention from broadcasters and certainly the public, as to whether these two stars will direct the drama to success.
