As drama “Mischievious Kiss” sets the male lead on the advantage, the male lead is particularly important. As this drama production is set to create Hallyu, they are eyeing for stars who are known in East Asia region.

Among this, on recent news reports that Kim Hyun Joong and Jung Yong Hwa have went for the casting, this has kept all fans at full attention on it. Who will become the lead then?
