I know this is not much of a relevant news..But one of my favorite drama recap blog posted about YTBLSS...So I just can't resist to share it ;P

The first stills of the upcoming weekend K-drama The Best Lee Soon Shin are out. The drama is scheduled to premiere on March 9th taking over the time slot from the ratings juggernaut My Daughter Seo Young so this sounds just about right. Starring IU in her first lead role (and just her second drama), Jo Jung Seok (also his first lead role but he’s long overdue), Yoo In Na, Go Joo WonLee Mi Sook, Son Tae Young, and Lee Ji Hoon, I’m actually looking forward to this. I haven’t watched a weekend drama in months, not since the nightmare insanity of plot contrivances that was May Queen, and I checked out MDSY but found it so predicable and boring. Weekend dramas can be entertaining despite its general family-oriented topics. I was addicted to Gloria a few years ago and I’m sure there are plenty of weekend fare that hooked me in the beginning that I’ve now forgotten about. I’m extremely eager to check this out for the cast alone, even if the story sounds all sorts of cliched. Youngest daughter Lee Soon Shin finds her family in dire straits after the death of her dad so she travels to Seoul to make it as a star and earn money. Jo Jung Seok plays the director of a management agency who is cold and arrogant and through meeting cheerful plucky Lee Soon Shin and falling in love, he realizes the error of his ways. LOL, I did not make this up. Lee Mi Sook is also a huge draw for me, and here she plays a former top starlet who takes Soon Shin under her wing and mentors her, and turns out she has a secret connection with Soon Shin’s mom. Double LOL, I bet I know what that is. Yoo In Na as the second sister also has her own cute love line with Go Joo Won, who plays her classmate but initially has a crush on youngest sister Soon Shin but these two later bicker their way to love. 

The cast of Lee Soon Shin actually didn’t take the typical days off last week during Lunar New Year celebrations and instead all gathered in a mountain resort to bond and study the script together. I’m hoping this dedication and professionalism yields tangible results and the cast chemistry will be excellent. Like I said, this isn’t anything new but with the right cast, deft writing that doesn’t dumb down the viewers, and a capable PD, it might be watchable and hopefully will be more than that and be surprisingly entertaining.

With the upcoming sageuk glut not to mention love love melodramas such asThat Winter, The Wind Blows and When a Man Loves, I could use a breezy alternative on weekends that isn’t too much of a commitment but addicting enough to follow week-to-week. I know family dramas typically start off interesting enough and then go down the makjang drain, or hit hard on the makjang factor from the get to. I don’t mind makjang if it is accompanied by a less ham-handed way of presenting it. I actually thought Brilliant Legacy/Shining Inheritance straddled the line quite well and make what was otherwise a pretty standard storyline something that was inexplicably appealing. I’m looking for the same vibe from TBLSS, and definitely steer away from the boring that was its predecessor My Daughter Seo Young. Airing on SBS and on this earlier time slot, this drama would have to majorly suck to not get decent ratings. With first time leads IU and Jo Jung Seok leading a young cast along with Go Joo Won, Yoo In Na, Son Tae Young, and Lee Ji Hoon, there are plenty of veterans to lure in the ahjummas as well. With Lee Mi Sook playing a former top actress and Kim Gab Soo playing Jo Jung Seok’s dad, these two reuniting in a drama is already enough to get me onboard. The first character posters and stills have been released and I’m loving all of them! SO CUTE! It’s nothing groundbreaking but does present a very appealing cast showcasing a very cheerful vibe. I know some folks have expressed worry with the 13-year age difference between 32 year old Jo Jung Seok and 19 year old IU, but for some reason I think they would really have chemistry and click well. Both are phenomenal singers in real life, in addition to acting, and have such sunny dispositions and twinkly smiles. Perhaps I’m putting too much faith into my expectations but so far these stills only add to my belief that this is going to be a fun cast to watch. My only quibble is that I love Jo Jung Seok’s hairstyle in these poster and character stills, but in the pictures below when he is on set he sports a different asymmetrical bowl-ish style haircut that is hideous. Oh well, since its a long weekend drama here’s to hoping for some haircut changes later on. Otherwise everyone is looking suitably smashing!

Go Joo Won's still cuts!!! He's SO freaking hot with the capital H ;-)"Go Joo-won plays the boy next door, literally the kid who grows up in the next house over, and is classmates with Yoo-shin. He’s a dermatologist and a particularly sweet oppa to IU’s character Soon-shin. In fact, growing up next door to the family, he’s always seen the second sister give the maknae a hard time, and has had a one-sided crush on the little sister for a really long time." - http://dramabeans.com

Son tae young's still cuts


Son Tae-yeong, is she really a mother?

Actress Son Tae-yeong's beauty and talent is shining in "Lee Soon-sin is the Best".

Son Tae-yeong takes on the role of Lee Soon-sin's eldest sister Lee Hye-sin who has the beauty, the skills, and personality every parent would want.

Son appeared wearing a dress to the poster site on the 15th. She is the mother of a child but her slender body fit the dress so well.

Son Tae-yeong's maturity and secure acting is obviously changed, according to a staff member. It was lucky they got to cast Son for the role of Lee Hye-sin.

"Lee Soon-sin is the Best" is about a mother and her daughters finding happiness after their father's sudden death. To be aired on the 9th of March after "My Daughter Seo-yeong".
