Recommended Posts


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.

IU displayed her bond with her best friend Yoo Inna.

During the 'You're the best Lee Soonshin' press conference, IU stated, "Throughout the years, Yoo Inna unnie was the one that treated me the best. She knows all of my emotional and physical problems. After receiving the synopsis, she was the first person that I talked to. She was the one that cheered me on the most, saying that I should take this role and when I heard that she got the role of Yooshin, it made me so happy that I couldn’t sleep."

'You’re the best Lee Soonshin' IU's feelings on her first leading role character "I'm confident playing the role of the ‘not pretty’ Lee Soonshin"

IU had gotten the role of the leading character, Lee Soonshin, in the drama 'You're the best Lee Soonshin'. She explained, "Lee Soonshin is a loser. She has no special skills but due to her daring personality, she is able to overcome hardships."

She had revealed, "When they offered me the role of a leading character in the KBS weekend drama, I was worried, wondering if I could do it. However the PD and the writers trusted me so I was able to become more confident. To add on, in most of the dramas when the character isn't supposed to be pretty, the actress playing that role often still looks pretty. So I'm confident that I'll be able to portray a character that's not pretty since I'm not pretty."

'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."

'You're the best Lee Soonshin', Go Dushim "IU's burden-less looks"

Actress, Go Dushim did not fail to shower IU with compliments.

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."

class="cb b15" IU, Will She Become "You're the Best, IU?"2304404951349991056FF8

Korea's little sister IU will attempt to transform into Korea's Daughter.

The new KBS drama "You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin" that is scheduled to air its first episode on March 9 is expected to continue the drama hype in Korea.

The father in "You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin" played by actor Jung Dong Hwan passes away suddenly, leaving his family behind. The storyline will focus on the process of his youngest daughter Lee Soon Shin (IU) achieving her dreams and experiencing love. Her mother Kim Jung Ae (Ko Doo Shim) is loving and fully supportive of her daughter but the story will tangle up when Lee Soon Shin's biological mother Song Mi Ryung (Lee Min Sook) appears in the picture.

The main complication is the storyline will be the secret of Lee Soon Shin's birth. It is a part of Lee Soon Shin that she will not be able to leave behind in her baby steps to becoming a top star.

IU will become an ugly duckling through her role as Lee Soon Shin. Unlike her perfect sisters who have all succeeded, she is portrayed as a typical 20-something-year-old with countless flaws. IU will have to bring a lot to the table in order to become accepted as a "singer transformed into actress" title.

The character Lee Soon Shin appears to have a lot of similarities to IU. Both are in their early 20s, both are top stars at the end of the story and experience a lot of hardships before their fame. We will have to watch the drama to see if the story is based on IU's life. IU have previously appeared on KBS "Dream High", but the role was not something that could be critiqued on a professional level.

In addition, "You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin" is the creation of Yoon Sung Shik PD, who explained, "When you look at the synopsis, Lee Soon Shin's image is not glamorous, but cute. After meeting IU, I was sure. After working together for a month, she is completely consumed by her character. A number of people are concerned about her acting but we are sure all worries will dissipate when the first episode airs."

He added, "Of course, the viewing rate is an important factor but we want this story to be fresh and have a lasting impression. We don't have a lot of money and are not the best in the industry but we are special. That perspective is the message we want to send out through this drama."

IU also expressed her confidence in portraying her character without any issues.

It will be interesting to watch whether this new concept aimed at the younger generation of viewers will be able to come out of this industry alive.
