IU Says Her Strength is in Her Lack of Beauty

IU said her strength is in her beauty, or, as she says, her lack thereof.

The press conference for You′re the Best Lee Soon Shin was held on March 4. IU, Ko Doo Sim, Lee Mi Sook, Jo Jeong Seok, Son Tae Young, Yoo In Na and other members of the cast were present to talk about the drama.When asked what strengths she would have to show in the drama, IU answered with a laugh, "Other actresses look pretty even when they′re not supposed to. I′m confident I′ll be able to not look pretty in such situations, since I′m actually not pretty."

IU will appear as the lead Lee Soon Shin, the youngest member of a successful family. Despite her family′s successes, however, she seems to have failed to inherit any talent, and is marked as an oddball. She then meets the head of an agency, named Shin Joon Ho (Jo Jeong Seok), and he turns her life around.

"I′m most confident that I can look as shabby and pathetic as Soon Shin is supposed to look without any need for special effects," she said to applause from her cast.

Ko Doo Sim joked, "It was the first time I saw IU, and I found she has friendly looks. She didn′t look out of place on set."

IU introduced her role as "a girl born a loser with no looks, abilities or traits," and said, "I believe my being cast for You′re the Best Lee Soon Shin is a chance given to me by the heavens. I′ll work hard."

You′re the Best Lee Soon Shin is about a mother and daughter who get caught up in unexpected trouble following the death of the father. It will air its first episode on March 9.

'You're the best Lee Soonshin', Lee Jinhoon compliments "IU thoroughly prepared herself."

Actor Lee Jihoon, who debuted as a singer, complimented his junior, IU.

Lee Jihoon will be playing the part as Kim Younghoon, who will look after Lee Soonshin (IU) while she goes through hardships.

He stated, "I don't know how they got an actress who matches the character of Lee Soonshin so well. I think she prepared herself more than I thought she would."

He continued, "Unlike during my time, there are a lot of cases where actors debut while they're still in their training. So I don't know if it's because they are given advice on how to act right on the set but comparing to my generation of singers that became actors, I think this generation is doing better."

'You're the best Lee Soonshin', Jo Jungsuk "Acting with IU, my family calls me a thief"

Jo Jungsuk revealed his worries regarding acting along side with IU, who is 13 years younger than him.

Jo Jungsuk will be playing the part as Shin Joonho. Shin Joonho will make a bet with his former girlfriend, Choi Yuna (Played by Kim Yoonsuh), that he could make Lee Soonshin (played by IU) into a top star.

When asked about acting with IU, he had revealed, "My family called me a thief. I hope this comment won't become a big issue but it's true. Although we have a large age gap, if IU is ok with it, I will try my best to portray our romantic relationship in the drama."

When asked about her thoughts on IU, Go Dushim had replied, "We recorded few scenes together but it didn't feel like we came from different eras."

She continued, "Truthfully, her looks don't burden me. I thought it would be hard for her to do an emotional scene. However, it really surprised me when she just poured out everything during those scenes. It made me think that when a person tries their best in their work, no matter what situation they're put in, they can always show their true qualities. You'll be able to see her brilliant acting."

'You're the best Lee Soonshin', PD "Casting IU? Your worries will be washed away after the 1st episode"

How did singer IU get the leading role in the KBS weekend drama?

When Yoon Sungsik PD was asked why he chose IU to take on a role of a girl that would be called a 'loser', he responded, "When I read the synopsis, the image I got of Lee Soonshin was of a short girl that looked cute rather than glamorous. I thought about actresses that looked like that but I personally thought IU was perfect for that image. After seeing her act in 'Dream High' it definitely showed me her potential as an actress."

However, after meeting IU, Yoon PD was sure of his decision about casting IU. He explained, "I'm confident when saying I think she became the perfect 'Lee Soonshin' after working for a month. I'm sure a lot of people are worried but after seeing the first two episodes, I think everyone's worries will be all washed away."
