I was surprised that he revealed this.  I remember reading it somewhere, before this OK! interview that he wanted to act for the next XX years ( sorry,  can't remember which article or interview was that ).  And he said it again.

 

I felt the same way! So much so that while I was translating, I kept checking certain sentences to be absolutely sure this is what he said. The only reason I wasn't totally shocked is because of what you mentioned him saying in his debut anniversary speech about acting for 20/30 more years. He responded to fans back in 2014 who were asking him to act for that long and he basically said that was a lot of time and didn't say he would. If anything, it seemed like he didn't think he'd be sticking out that long back then. I agree that he must've reflected on his life/career while he was enlisted and came back sure of what he wants to spend the rest of his life doing. It's actually pretty typical for people at his age to become less ambitious and rest on the things they've already accomplished... but Jongsuk has never really been very typical, has he?

i am reminded of when he said he was afraid of acting and didn't know what to do, in more than one of his last fan meetings before enlisting. i like to think his fear was caused by the uncertainty of where the two years would lead to, rather than a lack of passion from him directly. i never had doubts he has it in him to act, i never thought he would stop even though i've been scared he would, after his words before enlisting and even after that, when sending a food truck he would (on the first months of enlistment) call himself a retired actor, or something like that. i sure hope he doesn't fall into slumps anymore, but i'll keep supporting him every step of the way, whether his path will be filled with happiness or sadness. i'm with him for the good and the bad.

18 May 2021 - Yoona reportedly taking on the role as female lead along side with Lee Jong Suk for drama “Big Mouth”.

She will play the role as wife of the lawyer Park Chang Ho (Lee Jong Suk).

It expected to air in the second half of 2021.


Big Mouth” is a drama that follows the bizarre things that happen when a third-rate lawyer coincidentally takes charge of a murder case and digs deeper into the hidden truth. It is a record of the battles faced by a lawyer of the lower middle class who must become more evil than the villains in order to protect himself and his family and punish the bad guys in a world full of conspiracies and greed over power and capital.

Jong Suk was offered the role of Park Chang Ho, a lawyer who was never successful to begin with and eventually ends up reaching a win percentage of only 10 percent. Those around him call him a big mouth for talking grandiosely but showing no substance. He is so badly off that he can’t afford to pay the monthly rent for his office nor pay his office manager, who is also his father-in-law, on time.

Writer Ha Ram will pen the script along with screenwriters Jang Young Chul and Jung Kyung Soon, and Director Oh Choong Hwan of “While You Were Sleeping,” “Hotel Del Luna,” and “Start-Up” will helm the drama.

YoonA and Lee Jong Suk may be uniting for a new drama!

On May 18, an industry representative reported, “YoonA will be playing a married couple with Lee Jong Suk in the drama ‘Big Mouth.'”

 

In response to the report, YoonA’s agency SM Entertainment commented, “She has received a casting offer for the drama ‘Big Mouth,’ and she is positively reviewing [the offer].”

 

“Big Mouth” is a drama that follows the bizarre things that happen when a third-rate lawyer coincidentally takes charge of a murder case and digs deeper into the hidden truth. It is a record of the battles faced by a lawyer of the lower middle class who must become more evil than the villains in order to protect himself and his family and punish the bad guys in a world full of conspiracies and greed over power and capital.

 

As revealed last month, Lee Jong Suk is in talks to play the lawyer Park Chang Ho. YoonA has been offered the role of Go Mi Ho, who is Park Chang Ho’s wife and the person who made him a lawyer. She was graceful and reserved during her college days, but she has now become extremely bold and foul-mouthed.

 

If YoonA accepts the role, this will be her first drama since “Hush,” which ended earlier this year.

 

With Jang Young Chul and Jung Kyung Soon participating as creators, “Big Mouth” will be written by Ha Ram. It will be directed by Oh Choong Hwan of “While You Were Sleeping,” “Hotel Del Luna,” and “Start-Up” and is scheduled to begin filming in the second half of this year.

Waaa  @hilllllllly you remember the year, cool!  I can't remember when but he did say that he was not sure where he was heading, at a lost of what to learn or grasp, like there was a mental block or sort.   Yet, he strived on.    @jongkkotdescribed it very well in her post, thank you Chingu. :)      He was afraid of losing what he loves and treasures most - his passion.  Despite all that, whatever troubled him, he continues to work, act and work for himself, his staff, Amanproject and also for us fans.   

Back when just before he entered MS, he was a different though.   Was it after VIP or WYWS, his enthusiasm picked up, I feel that he became more confident.  He worked so hard to give us more projects before he left for MS.     Then during the parting moments at Seoul  FM on 1 Sept 2018, he said that he would not mind if we forget him eventually or move away from him, which he broke down.   Poor soul and we had to repeatedly assure him that we would not leave him, ever.  He delivered his promise and gave us RIABB.    Before that, he did Hymn of Death at end 2018 for free.

And on your point of him being typical @hilllllllly  Jong Suk is different.  He has never been a typical kind of person, often re-invent himself and strategizing his move, be it his personal career in acting or in business.   This guy has good business acumen and very observant.   We are so blessed to have a VERY HARDWORKING OPPA.   And, ....  I also hope he plans to be have a family too , one day.   I want him to love and be loved endlessly, not just having good endings in drama.  Haha!

As I put in my caption on my wall,  may you, Jong Suk prospers in every area in your life.

~ peace :heartxoxo:

I found this kind of interesting...

 

 

 

This is from the same account that originally reported that Yoona was considering Big Mouth. It was said before that it would air on TVN. Now it's saying that it doesn't have a set time or network. I was a little disappointed and worried until I noticed that a lot of the dramas on this list are some of the most highly anticipated with the biggest names. That got me wondering if this means they're more likely to get special treatment by being placed wherever they want to be when the time comes. Like any network would want them, any time slot would take them, and any other drama would be pushed back or forward to make room for them. If that's the case, it's good to know that Big Mouth is likely to air when it's ready instead of having to wait for a set network and time to fit it in.

maybe all the time slots on tvN got occupied with other dramas? :mellow: 

back when i shared the rumor, there was only one free slot iirc. filming is still set to begin in the second half of the year though. i wish this would also mean that filming can happen sooner.

That's why I think it might be up to the drama to set the time they will need the slot and all networks will comply. All of these dramas are way more important and bigger in anticipation than a lot of what tvN and other networks have lined up. A drama with little to no hype that is going to do poorly in the ratings isn't going to take precedence over Big Mouth, Happiness, or Our Blues. It's in a networks best interest to do what is going to give them the most ratings.

 

The fact that all of these dramas are unassigned, yet extremely anticipated makes me think it's common-place for dramas with more hype to be placed according to when they're ready. Back in 2018, Jongsuk booked Romance is a Bonus Book in September, started filming in November, and it began airing in January. If tvN's schedule is filled up well into 2022 and it's only May, there would have been no way that RIABB could have shown up out of nowhere in the second half of the year and found an empty slot when they did without special treatment. The same could be said for almost all of Jongsuk's dramas over the years. 

 

ETA

 

Now they're saying it is going to be on tvN, along with Happiness which was also on the other list. Hmm. This is a lot of unscheduled shows with big names. Either they're overbooking or there is something we don't know.

They've been announcing in news articles that Happiness will be on TVN, I don't think there is a question there. It is shooting right now and should air this fall.

 

I remember a while back before the Big Mouth announcement JS made a comment about really liking TVN. Which to me indicates that yes, his project is with them as well. If he doesn't start shooting until fall, then the air date is pretty far away still. I wouldn't expect to see an exact schedule for that one before seeing the one for Happiness. (Which hasn't been posted yet.)

He also mentions Netflix a lot and I notice tvN dramas are picked up by them more often than other networks. 
 

Time will tell about Big Mouth and when it will air. I think it’s pretty safe to assume it’ll start filming sometime between September-December and the air date could be anytime between 2-4 months after that. I personally think it’ll start airing in 2021 but won’t finish until 2022.
 

I keep feeling like the first half of this year has been insanely busy for him and the second half of this year will be endlessly busy for us. Once everything he’s been working on starts to come out, we’ll be even more grateful for all the work he’s put in.

Also home to Yang Jeong Yeon. Quite an actress-heavy agency these days! 

 

@hilllllllly your timeline sounds reasonable to me. :) And yes, there's a lot of work going into dramas and movies right now on the creation side, but someday it will be busy times for viewers as we get to see the results (which are many! Yay!)

Do you guys think The B Team is a cute nickname or hashtag to use for Big Mouth or that maybe it’s an alternate title...? 

 

Wouldn’t it be crazy if it’s actually a second drama he’s looking into? Maybe that’s what caused the confusion this morning with Big Mouth being in the “no network, no schedule” category when it’s obviously going to be on tvN. I’m leaning towards The B Team being Big Mouth, but maybe not...?

i was able to find something about the title. if there's a drama out there that is titled exactly "the B team" already, then i apologize for posting info about something that's old. :sweatingbullets: i couldn't find any drama under that title.

 

in any case, the news about this drama go back to december 2020, so i don't think i'm mistaken. it's produced by the director of "dr. romantic", "vagabond" and "giant". the writer is kang eun kyung. the drama is about superpowers and some "mentalist", "psychic" powers, it sounds like it talks about the consequences of using superpowers without knowing it...? or without wanting to?

it seems it would be broadcast on youtube and it's supposed to happen in 2021.

edit: it's not meant to air on youtube! oops. sorry about that, my bad.
