So he finally updates and but is still hiding! :sweatingbullets: Aw, but I absolutely love and adore his friendship with Yoon Kyun Sang. They are the sweetest and I'm so glad they have each other.

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.

 

Wow! So it really is a drama of it's own! And it can't just be a mistake on the part of the twitter account because they included the graph that they're going by that has his name down for that specific project. It also seems likely because when it was originally spoken about, it was set to air on SBS (despite the "no schedule, no channel" category it's under now). Jongsuk has a pretty strong ties to them. Prosecutor Princess, Secret Garden,  I Hear Your Voice, Doctor Stranger, Pinocchio, and While You Were Sleeping were all broadcast on SBS. I've wondered if this is an alternative to Big Mouth, but they've been setting that drama up very elaborately for while now. I doubt his name would show up under The B Team for the first time in the middle of all this hysteria around Big Mouth if it's simply just another drama he's looking at.

 

So this means he's potentially signing up for 2 dramas this year? This is actually something I've seen a few actors do lately, but where will he find the time? I'm guessing after Decibel wraps up, he'll jump into Big Mouth and when that's over, he'll move on to The B Team for an early-mid 2022 release. I didn't expect for him to quit after Big Mouth and this schedule is actually very similar to what he did in 2016-2017 after a year long break (Jade Lover, W, VIP, WYWS with no breaks in between), but it's still crazy to see it in action after all this time.

So, I just searched The B Team out of boredom and curiosity and was kind of surprised by what I found! This might be a really, really big deal. There are articles about it in both American and Korean publications. What an amazing opportunity!

 

Korean superhero drama based on Stan Lee’s ideas to be made

2018-11-29 17:34

Marvel comics creator Stan Lee’s ideas will soon get the K-drama treatment.

“The B-TEAM” (working title) will be based on the late creator’s work. The original content centers on B-rated superheroes fighting against a mad scientist who created them.

 

Korean screenwriter Kang Eun-kyung, best-known for the hit drama series “King of Baking, Kim Takgu,” and her creative group Plot Line will write the script for the upcoming superhero drama series. 

POW! Entertainment, an American media production company created by Lee, will also participate in the early stages of planning and development.

Studio Invictus, the main production company for the drama, also plans to create a Chinese version of the drama with JYP Pictures and China’s Camsing Global. Both series will be based on Lee’s work, but will have different actors and localized content.

“The drama is a global project, collaborating with Hollywood and Korean actors who are leading Hallyu,” said Kim Kyung-won, CEO of Studio Invictus, in a press release.

“We hope to set a successful prototype for Asian superhero dramas.”

The Korean superhero drama is expected to air in 2020, Studio Invictus told the Korea Herald.

thanks for sharing, @hilllllllly

wow, this idea has been going around since 2018?! the enthusiasm of everyone on the project is exciting! according to the article, it was set to be released in 2020, but since we're almost in the second half of 2021... could it air in 2022 if they started filming at the end of the year? even if jongsuk took the role in big mouth, and even if the drama takes four to five months to be done (assuming it's a pre-produced drama, i.e. WYWS took five months to film), filming of the B team could start around december or january. i don't think he could take two roles at the same time, though. hopefully his schedule allows him to pick this role up, if he really got the offer!

It looks like they're still in the very early stages of picking a cast and planning production, so it isn't likely to film before 2022. But I wouldn't be surprised if this is the reason he's still not officially signed on for Big Mouth. If they were to start production for The B Team before the end of this year, I could see him opting out of anything else to take this role. I'm really hoping that he's able to do both because that's more (and sooner) for us, but I would hate for him to turn this down just so he could get a drama out to us before the end of the year.

 

I wonder if Jongsuk is someone they've wanted for this project since the very beginning? The fact that it was supposed to be made when he was unavailable and now his name is attached after returning from the military is either very good luck or done on purpose.

i thought so too. what if they were waiting for him to be back from his military service? but the article said "korean actors who are leading hallyu". jongsuk is definitely part of that but the plural confuses me...i also thought he hasn't said anything about big mouth because he wants to finish filming decibel first, and he still has time to accept. he waited to accept decibel because he wanted to focus on the witch 2, so it's likely he's following the same pattern regarding the drama too. i find it to be a good decision, i don't want him to feel burdened if he accepts early. i hope big mouth is done by the end of the year and that he can take the role in the B team after that.

If the movie is about superheros who rebel against the mad scientist who created them, there will definitely be more than one character. I wouldn't be surprised if this was more of an ensemble cast with one or two actors (like Jongsuk) who are the main leads. It sounds like one of the rare dramas that don't necessarily have to follow the male/female lead, second male/female lead casting. I think it would be awesome if they hired another very popular actor and one or two popular actresses to join the cast as various superheroes. It also sounds like the kind of drama that could fit in a bunch of fun cameos.

 

It seems like a lot of fun and something everyone will love. Isn't it one of Jongsuk's dreams to be a superhero? I love this for him! I hope it all works out.

I still have no idea either! Photoshoots for monthly magazines tend to happen in the last week or the very beginning of each month, so I'm guessing these were taken any time between April 26th - May 2nd. That means his hair was long after he started filming Decibel. The pictures we got of him a few days ago didn't clear anything up for me. It didn't look shaved on the sides like it did in the picture he posted himself. My first thought was that his hat could be hiding a haircut, or it could just be hiding his hair. It makes sense that he'd cut his hair but it also makes sense that he might need to keep it for some reason and they'll have to work around it. I'm completely in the middle. Neither would surprise me.

 

He knows he's driving us crazy though. :lol: That is something I'm sure of.

Actor Lee Jong Suk's appearance makes even casual moments a picture

 

155297_560.jpg

Actor Lee Jong Suk has released a refreshing pictorial.

Lee Jong Suk showed off his beautiful appearance in the June issue of the fashion magazine BAZAAR.

155298_560.jpg
 
Spoiler

俳優イ・ジョンソクが清涼感あふれるグラビアを公開しました。

イ・ジョンソクはファッション誌「BAZAAR」6月号のグラビアを通じて、女性も羨む輝く美貌を披露しました。



現在撮影中の映画のために髪をのばしているイ・ジョンソクは、モデル出身らしいプロフェッショナルな姿で長い髪を幻想的に消化しています。 少しぎこちない様子で頭に手を当てる姿さえも美しくAカットとしてグラビアに盛り込まれました。



同日、エアコンに関連したグラビアの特性上、長いセッティング時間があったにも関わらず、イ・ジョンソクは余裕を持った気持ちで、より良い姿を見せようとスタッフたちを督励する姿を見せたといいます。 清涼感があふれ、洗練された姿で魅力を誇っています。

一方、イ・ジョンソクは映画「魔女2」と「デシベル(仮題)」に出演します
 



Lee Jong Suk, who is stretching his hair for the movie he is currently filming, is fantastically digesting his long hair with a professional appearance that seems to be from a model. Even the appearance of putting his hand on his head in a slightly awkward manner was beautifully incorporated into the pictorial as an A-cut.



On the same day, despite the long setting time due to the characteristics of the pictorials related to the air conditioner, Lee Jong Suk said that he showed a feeling of flexibility to encourage or ease the staff to do better.  It is full of refreshing feeling and boasts a sophisticated appearance.

Meanwhile, Lee Jong Suk will appear in the movies "Witch 2" and "Decibel (tentative title)".
