  1. I think the production team has no choice but to replace him with another actor. To fail to do so would risk being shunned by viewers when the show airs in a month time, especially if the allegations are proven true. Yes, unfortunately they will have to re-shoot his scenes, but on the other hand, they do still have one month. So sad. But it's better not to associate with a sex criminal, even someone as big as Oh Dal-su, given the existing controversy surrounding the age gap.
  2. Since IU's character's last name is the same as Jang Ki Young's, does anyone think they could be siblings or related?
  3. And here's the video from the script reading meeting: http://tv.naver.com/v/2739881?query=tvN+수목드라마+<나의+아저씨>+대본+리딩+현장+공개&plClips=false:2739881:1833750:2004919 I'm hoping someone would sub it in English.
  4. A new still was just released showing the three brothers having a drink. I am looking forward to their bromance as much as anything and judging from LSK's past works, I believe this, too, will be funny and epic.
  5. There have been a few in recent years. In fact one of them, My Wife's Having an Affair This Week (2016), also stars Lee Sun Kyun as a husband whose wife cheats on him. Ratings were very decent for a JTBC (cable) drama. That same year KBS aired On the Way to the Airport, about a woman and man in very bad marriages finding love in each other. I didn't see it, but I think it was well received. And then a few years back JTBC had A Secret Love Affair, depicting an affair between an older woman in a very tough marriage with a much younger man, and this drama had very very good ratings. Although I only watched the LSK's drama, I think all three shows handle the subject in a sensitive manner and none of them made light of affair. That was probably why they did rather well rating-wise. The reason people assume My Mister is about the romance between an older man and a younger woman could be because it was not revealed until after LSK and IU had been confirmed that his character would have a wife. By then it was already too late to convince some people that there might not be romance between the main leads at all. I don't think the production team ever explicitly said there would be romance between them, so it remains to be seen. They have been very vague. I am sure of this though: we have a director who knows exactly what he is doing and a lead actor who is very sensitive and respectful toward his female co-stars (an their fans). I am very hopeful we will see a product that will handle all relationships carefully.
  6. IU returns to TV with romantic drama My Mister by Nancy Z on Thu, Feb 15, 2018 Read the rest here: https://www.dramafever.com/news/iu-returns-to-romantic-tv-drama-in-my-mister/
  7. Hey, welcome to the thread. I remember you from LSK's last drama and the thoughtful insights you shared there. Hopefully this drama will be as stirring as that one. Yay for another LSK fan! It's been lonely thinking I might be the only one coming here for him. I know it will be a very satisfying watch as he never disappoints. I am liking the two teasers even though they are rather similar. In both we have LSK turning around as if caught off-guard, perhaps hinting at his world that is about to collapse right before his eyes. And in both IU has this steely look in her eyes that gives me goose bumps with excitement.
  8. One more actor cast last night: Chae Dong Hyun. No idea on what role he will play. Is anyone familiar with him? http://news.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2018/02/12/2018021200914.html
  9. Yay! Welcome to the thread. Hope to have lots of people talking about this drama once it starts. For someone as popular as IU seems to be, this drama does not seem to generate a lot of interest yet other than the frequent "I wish the male lead were someone else."
  10. Koala's written an article on her blog: http://koalasplayground.com/2018/02/10/first-teaser-ahjusshi-lee-seon-kyun-iu-reveal-unexpected-comedic-undertones/
  11. Geez, that is such a short teaser. We still haven't learned anything new other than getting a confirmation that this drama is about "three brothers and a woman who feel the weight of the world." Hope more goodies will be released soon.
  12. Yes, finally an official update. I expect with only a month away from its airing, TVN will start releasing promo materials. Then we'll know better what kind of a relationship they are aiming for. Really pray someone out there will do a recap of this show, hopefully Dramabeans. Is there going to be a chat with the cast tomorrow via V LIVE?
  13. Very good news!! It looks like Drama Fever will carry our drama, although there is nothing yet on that page: https://www.dramafever.com/drama/5156/my-mister/ https://www.dramafever.com/news/-leading-men-in-dramafevers-new-and-upcoming-k-dramas-you-cant-miss/ And if you prefer Viki, please don't forget to request license daily: https://www.viki.com/tv/35740c-mr-lonely?cb=89a7a9060e8cc846cd991865a076a6b5&content_lang=en&fresh_login=login&q=mr+lone&site_lang=en
  14. No, "My Mister" is just a translation from the Korean "My Ajusshi." The titles on the banners are still read "Naui Ajusshi."
