We may have a sort-of-love rival for the titular handsome guy or "Handsome Guy and Jung-eum", as actor Choi Tae-joon is reportedly reviewing the role of the heroine's friend-but-not-quite. The actor's agency has confirmed the offer, but stressed that he is only considering the newly described character.
If he does accept, Choi Tae-joon will be playing Jung-eum's friend, Choi Joon-soo. Joon-soo is a friendly and handsome rehabilitation clinic doctor. He is a friend close enough to be mistaken for a lover, meaning that he will have a relationship between love and friendship with Jung-eum, and therefore become involved with Namgoong Min's character as well.
I am pretty such of nasty jealous second leads by now, and that "friendly and handsome and perfect" description seems highly suspicious, but I guess we'll see how well his friendship holds when he can't take any interest present further. Maybe this will be a case of bromantic clashing with a mutual understanding of their place in the heroine's life. A woman can dream.
