[Drama 2018-2019] Top Star Yoo Baek 톱스타 유백이

Recommended Posts

Reading the comments here.  You people are great, giving lots of food for thought!

 

So true, how are our OTP going to coexist once YB goes back to his world?  I think YB is attracted to KS because of her simplicity and purity.....her world represents everything he needs in his life.  The peacefulness, fresh air, sincere people on the island, is really a healing source for him.  In his world, everyone and everything around him is toxic, that’s why he has been having a difficult time and became such a jerk.  I think all celebrities Live like that, their lives become a fishbowl. I like my privacy, so I can understand how offensive that can be....but they are celebrities, that’s the price of fame!

 

I live on a small island, where many celebrities come and buy property so that they can have some privacy and be incognito a bit.  You know they are around, but you don’t hear of anyone stalking them.  I once stood in line at the local drugstore behind Richard Chamberlain, and just smiled at him as he put the divider on the counter for me to unload my stuff.  I knew who he was but didn’t say anything.....the woman in front of him was fawning over him, I had to chuckle.  

 

I’m interested to see how the writer will get the OTP together and how they will end up.  I love the beauty of that island, but not sure I could live there.  Hahahahahhahaha

Will YB give up his current life to be with KS? I think he will be rather torn. He has never known any other life except this one, as a much-loved and popular top star before his scandal. And once you have reached the peak, some people may find it difficult or embarrassing to come down from that pedestal. On the other hand, living his life this way has caused him extreme stress - he can't sleep and has to keep popping sleeping pills. He is also suspicious of everyone, doesn't seem to have close friends or family to confide in, and this can't be good for him psychologically. To me, his acceptance speech at the Awards Show and his comments to the reporters when they interupted his drama filming was career suicide. He's mocking the very people (TV stations and fans) who have ensured his popularity and livelihood. What has happened to make him behave this way? I believe that he, being a veteran in this industry, would know what and what not to say. So what triggered him to want to throw his hard earned career away? Is he ready to give it all up though? Taking a two week vacation is very different from totally stepping away from the one constant in your life.

 

Which way would YB go?

Right? I do believe the island will get some modern conveniences if nothing else.Speaking if celebrities, maybe the last scene will be of a dejected Ma Dol welcoming and snarking with an exiled brat diva actress or spoiled chaebol heiress in need of a place to stay and healing  ;)

@joonminfan Thanks for the compliment! crazy monkey

I also think that the plot is moving fast because in just one episode, YB started perceiving OKS differently. I do think that OKS played a huge part in it... she got much friendlier, once she realized that he was suffering in silence. She got aware that his rude behaviour was just a mask. She started treating him differently. The smile she gave him while waving could stop his tears and pain... from that moment, he saw her with new eyes. 

I am looking forward to seeing him competing with CMD. YB has been used to be admired by his fans, yet he sees that another man is interested in OKS and she is much closer to CMD than to him. On the other hand, I doubt that she sees CMD as man (based on the preview). 

@triplem 

In my opinion, the cake was for a family member and not a "girlfriend" as he doesn't seem to be the type who falls in love so easily and often. The way I see it, YB might have chosen such a career for different reasons: being loved and a good income. He is earning a lot of money but even with his money and career, he is not able to get close to the person he wanted to see and meet. That's why he didn't really enjoy receiving the award. Therefore I sense that YB might decide to change his career... which could have an impact on the person he wanted to see and meet. I am still convinced that it is related to his family. A theory: Maybe he was raised by a single mother... and the more famous he became, the more she kept pushing him away as she felt, she could ruin his reputation and this brought them more and more apart. To me, it looks like YB will end up living on that island. Remember that the inhabitants are thinking about building a resort on that island.

I loved that scene of her smiling so genuinely and happily at YB, and his tears just stopped. But my favourite was of him watching her sleep when they were in her secret hideout. There's something so sweet in his gaze, and I know this is a repeated trope, but so far, I have loved all the ones I have seen! :wub:

 

I wonder from watching the preview, whom KS dolled up for. I suspect it could be YB, as she was standing in the yard of her own house, looking towards the rooms. I need to rewatch that part to be sure though. And it seems like MD took the words of a little girl very seriously. We know for sure that he is in love with her, as he keeps looking at her photo and talking to it on his ship. But does she love him as an oppa:P or an OPPA:wub:

 

I was watching videos on IG and came across one (can't find it now) that showed MD as the person who gave the toy robot to KS. She calls the toy her guardian angel. So MD is her guardian angel, who has been caring for her ever since she lost her parents at 2.

Oh yeh! ISH is coming! 

 

But she wouldn't be able to interact with our main leads, because they are on the island. Interesting. I wonder what her appearance is going to be about.

Im Soo Hyang To Make Hilarious Cameo Appearance In “Top Star U-Back”

Im Soo Hyang To Make Hilarious Cameo Appearance In “Top Star U-Back”

Nov 29, 2018
by L. Kim

Im Soo Hyang will be making a cameo appearance in “Top Star U-Back”!

On November 29, the tvN drama released stills of the actress’ appearance on the show.

In the newly-released stills, Im Soo Hyang shows off her haughty charms, which draws attention to the identities of her partners in the conversation. She is talking to Heo Jeong Min, who plays Nam Jo, and Jo Hee Bong, the CEO of top star Yoo Baek (Kim Ji Suk)’s agency. Viewers are curious about why these two met up with Im Soo Hyang’s character and how she is connected to them.

According to the production crew, in this particular scene, the CEO and Nam Jo are trying to locate Yoo Baek two hours before the start of an awards ceremony. They will attempt to find the people who were previously entangled in scandals with him, and the situation is already receiving interest from viewers.

The production crew stated, “We asked [Im Soo Hyang] to appear [on the show] under the judgment that the appearance of the greatest actress coming second to Korea’s top star Yoo Baek will have a dramatic effect on the drama. [Im Soo Hyang] revealed her hidden comical instinct by playing a rude, narcissistic character who is equivalent to the ‘female Yoo Baek.’ Im Soo Hyang worked passionately despite her busy schedule, so please stay tuned for the live broadcast.”

“Top Star U-Back” is about A-list celebrity Yoo Baek (played by Kim Ji Suk) who causes a huge scandal and is exiled to Yeojeuk Island. There, he experiences slow countryside life and begins a romance with Oh Kang Soon (played by Jun So Min).

The drama airs every Friday at 11 p.m. KST.
