Kim Ji Suk will be returning with a new drama!

The actor has been confirmed to star in tvN’s upcoming Friday drama “Top Star Yoo Baek” (literal title). The drama will follow the story of top star Yoo Baek who causes trouble and ends up exiled to an island. Romance ensues when the celebrity used to a sophisticated, fast life meets Kang Soon Gwa, a country-bumpkin who enjoys the slow life. He will be joining Lee Sang Yeob, while Jun So Min is still in talks for the drama.

Kim Ji Suk will be playing the role of narcissistic top star Yoo Baek. Though he has a confident personality and outstanding good looks, he is distrustful of people because of trauma he experienced at a young age. An idol-actor, he is successful in both singing and acting, earning the nickname of “Nation’s Melo Man.”

Any news whether Jun So Min has accepted the role? I really hope she accepts. Based on the character's description, i think the writer has her in mind as it fits her so well + JSM-LSY's chemistry was crazy on RM.

I can't wait to watch this show!

 

*edited: just notice that they'll only aired once a week?? Did they planned to kill me or what?? Arggh I can already feel the agony of waiting for their next ep to come

Jun So Min Confirmed To Star Opposite Lee Sang Yeob And Kim Ji Suk In New Drama

by eclipse01

 

d13ae2c5ffba4928882e06a04397370c.jpeg?s=

Jun So Min will be joining Lee Sang Yeob and Kim Ji Suk in a new tvN drama!

On September 17, the actress’s agency confirmed that she would be starring in the upcoming drama “Top Star Yoo Baek” (literal title). A representative stated, “Jun So Min will be appearing in ‘Top Star Yoo Baek’ in the role of Oh Kang Soon, the female lead.”

“Top Star Yoo Baek” will tell the story of a former idol and A-list actor (played by Kim Ji Suk) who is banished to a remote island after causing some major trouble. The drama will follow Yoo Baek as he adapts to his new surroundings and eventually strikes up a romance with Oh Kang Soon, a woman who seems to have nothing in common with him.

Jun So Min recently cut her hair into a bob in order to play the role of Oh Kang Soon, a hardworking young woman who doesn’t care about anything aside from her studies, her work as a diver, or the supermarket she runs. Unlike the worldly and sophisticated Yoo Baek, Oh Kang Soon barely even knows how to use a cell phone.

Jeon So-min joins Kim Ji-suk in tvN fish-out-of-water romance

by girlfriday

JeonSoMin_KimJiSuk1.jpg

There’s a new tvN Friday night drama on the way this fall called Top Star Yoo Baek that’s got a classic city-slicker-meets-country-bumpkin setup, and actors Kim Ji-suk (20th Century Boy and Girl) and Jeon So-min (Cross) have signed on to play the leads. They’re great choices since the drama calls for comedic chops, which they’ve both proven in previous rom-coms.

Kim Ji-suk will headline as Yoo Baek, former idol star who turned to acting and became a household name as a national star. He’s a vain, unapologetic narcissist who gets into some major trouble, and gets exiled to a tiny backwoods island (presumably for image damage control). There, he’ll have the culture shock of his life in a place far from civilization, and meet and fall in love with country girl Jeon So-min. It’s basically Modern Farmer with less rock, but do I ever tire of seeing haughty top stars being taken down a peg or twenty? No, never.

Jeon So-min’s character is a deep-sea diver who has no interests outside of studying and diving. She’s lived such an isolated, quiet life in her small island village that she hardly even knows what a smartphone is. Kim Ji-suk’s top star is, of course, the very opposite in every way—he’s an early adapter who lives the fast life, chases trends, and distrusts others. The drama is described as a culture-clash romance in which the top star will flail and fall, grow and change, and find love.

Kim Ji Suk, Jun So Min, And Lee Sang Yeob Attend Script Reading For New Rom-Com

by E. Cha
c91277d04f044f96b1c6eed92d93c428.jpeg?s=

tvN’s upcoming drama “Top Star Yoo Baek” (literal title) has shared photos from its first table read!

The new “culture-clash romance” will star Kim Ji Suk as the narcissistic Yoo Baek, a former idol and A-list actor who is banished to a remote island after causing some major trouble. While struggling to adapt to his new surroundings, he eventually strikes up a romance with Oh Kang Soon (played by Jun So Min), a tough, hardworking woman who has very little in common with the worldly and sophisticated Yoo Baek.

At the drama’s first script reading, which took place on September 5, the two leads reportedly impressed those present with their lively chemistry and natural acting. Kim Ji Suk was meticulous and detailed in his portrayal of the self-absorbed Yoo Baek, while Jun So Min made everyone smile with her convincing rustic accent.
