Actors who got casting offers for the role of Jang Geu Rae

Lee Je Hoon
Lee Jong Seok
Ji Chang Wook

Newsen - Nate: Lee Jong Seok, Ji Chang Wook and Lee Je Hoon declined casting lovecall for the role of Jang Geu Rae 

1. [+1,119, -24] Even if Lee Je Hoon ended up taking the role, it would've suit him just as fine. But Im Siwan did such an amazing job expressing innocence and feebleness while wearing his father's old suit

2. [+886, -38] Casting Im Siwan did wonders

3. [+66, 0] I can't see Lee Jong Seok rocking this role.. Lee Je Hoon sort of fits it and he's a good actor but Im Siwan's casting is daebak

4. [+54, -2] As for Heirs, I remember reading articles about Jung Yonghwa being confirmed for the role of Choi Yong Do but declined it because he wanted a change of role so they ended up casting Kim Woo Bin to replace him

5. [+30, -4] Can't imagine 'Misaeng' without Im Siwan as Jang Geu Rae, Byun Yohan as Han Seok Yool, Lee Sung Min as Oh Sang Shik, Kim Dae Myung as Dong Shik and Kang Sora as Ahn Yeong Yi

6. [+25, -1] Lee Jong Seok too tall and that would've entirely changed Jang Geu Rae's vibe.  Either Lee Je Hoon or Ji Chang Wook is a good choice as they have the acting chops for it

7. [+14, -1] Not sure about Lee Jong Seok but Lee Je Hoon fits it well

8. [+13, 0] Come to think of it,  Lee Je Hoon fits the role too
