Han Ye-seul considers offer to headline No Sex and the City

by tineybeanie


Fall MBC drama No Sex and the City may have found its female lead in Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine). Although her agency has said that it’s only one of a few projects she’s currently reviewing, I think this type of drama would be a perfect match for her vibrant personality and acting style. This new rom-com will be about the cherished friendships, family life, and romantic attachments of three 35-year-old virgins living in the city.




Kim Ji-suk considers MBC rom-com No Sex and the City

by tineybeanie


One of the reasons I enjoy watching Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) is that he knows how to play men who complement powerful female characters without losing any of his own character’s unique charms, which is why it’s great news that he has been offered one of the leading male roles in the upcoming MBC drama No Sex and the City. This rom-com will portray the realistic lives of a trio of virgin girlfriends in their mid-thirties as they continue about their familial relationships, friendships, and romantic journeys.

@larus   This is like the mature version of Age of Youth.. well, seems like that.  Any news who might be the other two female actress for the other two single ladies role.  They need to be in their early 30's? I feel like I don't  know enough actress in their early 30's. Maybe I'm familiar with the faces but not names. This drama we'll more females central characters. And it's good. They take center stage. It's good.

 No, we don`t have any news about the other female characters. My major interest in this drama is that is about friendship between women. Everywhere in dramaland we see bromance and it is nice that they remember from time to time that women do have friends.

I am not a fan of changing the title after they`ve announced it already but in this case I am glad they changed it. I don`t know what to say about the new title but doesn`t matter, really.  BTW, we are in 21st Century (just saying... :wink:) Hope it is a good drama.

We have Kim Ji Suk`s confirmation.

Ryu Hyun-kyung up to join girlfriend trio in No Sex and the City

by tipsymocha


We’ve got another potential member of the trio of girlfriends at the center of MBC’s upcoming No Sex and the City: Ryu Hyun-kyung (The Lover, Empress Ki) is considering an offer to join Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine) in the rom-com that follows three women in their mid-thirties as they navigate their love lives, friendships, and their familial ties.

If she accepts, Ryu Hyun-kyung will play Han Ah-reum, a flight attendant who is constantly on a diet. She broke weight records as a newborn and suffered from childhood obesity, but under her mother’s strict supervision, she shed a ton of weight and became a flight attendant (in Korea, airlines are known for only hiring attractive cabin crew). Aw, I can see myself sympathizing with her character a lot.

Kim Ji-suk, Han Ye-sul confirm lead roles in 20th Century Boy and Girl

by tineybeanie



Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) has confirmed that he’ll be starring in Han Ye-seul’s (Madam Antoine) new rom-com. The title of the drama has changed from No Sex and the City to 20th Century Boy and Girl, but the premise is still the same. It captures the lives of a trio of modern women who are thirty-five years old and forever-singles who are solo not by choice, but by chance, as they mature in their friendships, family bonds, and romantic attachments.

Kim Ji-suk will play an investment banker with a Harvard MBA, and a background in Wall Street. He’s had a successful career filled with achieved ambitions, but he has an innocent side to him: He’s still loyal to his first love. Han Ye-seul, on the other hand, will play one of the main independent single women in the trio. Ryu Hyun-kyung (Empress Ki) is also considering an offer to be part of the trio as a diet-obsessed flight attendant, but she has not yet confirmed.

Actress Lee Sang Hee will compleate the trio of girlfriends. She will play a lawyer named Jeong Yong-shim . A coincidence, all three actresses have the same age, they were born in 1983. Lee Sang Hee has mostly movies in her filmography. She did just a drama special last year, she was the protagonist in KBS " Dance From Afar".

An Se Ha will play the role of Jung Woo-sung, an obstetrician specializing in gynecology.

Actor Lee Sang Woo is currently under review for a proposal for the MBC drama ’20th Century Boys and Girls’. The role that he will take on 'The 20th Century Boys and Girls' is an actor, a former idol. If he will accept it will the the third time he will work with PD Lee Dong Yoon (two drama consecutively after MBC weekend drama Happy Home). I hope he will accept the offer. It will be like coming home for him. :D

I like that we`ll have in this drama three female protagonists with their own love story and their relationship with each other. I look forward to see their friendship the most but I am for their story also, how they find love.  If Lee sang Woo will accept the role, we`ll have all three pair.  From what I read, Han Ye-seul will play a photographer and a former idol actress. Kim Ji-suk is an investment expert (graduated from Harvard  MBA, he worked on the Wall Street) a character who does not lose heart for first love.  They are the couple number one, I assume.   Ryu Hyun Kyung plays a flight attendant and she will be paired with Lee sang woo`s character? Lee Sang woo plays an actor. He is a former idol actor too just like the female protagonist and I think both of them know each other from their youth. I think the third couple will be Lee Sang Hee and Oh Sang Jin. Both characters work in the legal system. She is a lawyer and he is a prosecutor or a lawyer too. I am pleased with the casting. I can`t wait to see their story on screen. :D

I am curious where Ahn Se Ha`s character will insert in their story. He is a friend with the girls or with the boys?  :)

The idol has been cast in MBC's new Monday-Tuesday drama '20th Century Boy and Girl' (formerly 'No Sex and the City'). Jellyfish Entertainment said, "Mina will be playing the child version of the main character Han Ye Seul."

Han Ye Seul will play Sa Jin Jin, an idol-turned actress. Mina has been cast as her younger role, meaning she'll be playing the idol star.

Say what? I remember when I read the synopsis at MyDramaList and I was confused. It said that the romantic lives of the three girlfriends begin when the boy they liked in their youth shows up one day. I wonder if they liked the samer boy or they all meet their crush from their youth. Now I am curious what is going on. Maybe they liked the same boy but in the present they will meet their own partner and move on from their crush.

20th Century Boy and Girl adds Lee Sang-woo as second lead

by tipsymocha


Ooh, this cast is shaping up quite nicely. MBC’s 20th Century Boy and Girl has just added a slew of names to its roster, and it’s a great combination of familiar and newer faces to dramaland. I’m really looking forward to watching a drama with female friendships at its center, and penned by a Answer Me series junior writer, Lee Sun-hye, I’m expecting lots of heartwarming relationships and friends-as-family moments.

Newlywed Lee Sang-woo is considering 20th Century Boy and Girl as his first project post-marriage, and if he confirms, he’ll be reuniting with PD Lee Dong-yoon who he worked with on All’s Well With a Happy Home. His character is a former idol-turned-actor named Anthony, and he’ll start to gain interest in Han Ye-seul’s (Madam Antoine) character, who is herself an actress with an idol background and his fan.

Aw, I’m happy that Lee Sang-woo is considering a return so soon after his wedding, but this means he would be playing second lead to Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People). This show is setting me up for failure if it’s going to make me choose between them.
