[Drama 2018-2019] Bok-Soo's Back / My Strange Hero, 복수가 돌아왔다

Recommended Posts

 In the same way that I wanted Kim  Yoo Jung doing  dark angsty melodarama ( like 2015 Angry Mom) is the same as how I want  Yoo Seung Ho to do more powerful angsty melodama (like 2015 Remember). These two terrific young actors will premiere dramas  CWPFN (rom-com loves story ) last week of November while this "Revenge is Back" is first week December?

 

But looking at the story plot...

 

When Kang Bok-Soo (Yoo Seung-Ho) was a high school student, he was falsely accused of committing violence and kicked out of school. This was caused by his first love Son Soo-Jung and a male student Oh Se-Ho. 

Kang Bok-Soo is a now an adult, but his life has not gone smoothly. To get revenge on Son Soo-Jung and Oh Se-Ho, he returns to the same high school as a student. The environment at the school has changed and Kang Bok-Soo gets involved in unexpected cases.

 

 I agree this will good one if done right. Looks like it will touch the subject of bullying which is always sensitive topic. It's good to bring out awareness through dramas. As the title says "Revenge is back" It's going to touch of revenge, vindication and such after being  falsely accused... I guess his life will be ruined because of the accusations.

 

@Berou is the female lead confirmed? not familiar with her but I watched her in SUFBB.

Jo Bo Ah is confirmed to star in SBS’s upcoming romantic comedy drama with Yoo Seung Ho.

“Revenge Is Back” (working title) tells the story of Kang Bok Soo (played by Yoo Seung Ho), a student who is expelled from school after being falsely accused of being a bully. He returns to school as an adult to seek revenge, but he is unexpectedly swept up in a series of new incidents. Son Soo Jung (played by Jo Bo Ah) is the lovely and smart class president. She was Bok Soo’s first love, but she betrays him and returns to school as a teacher.

Jo Bo Ah said, “I’m excited to say hello to viewers again with a romantic comedy drama. I’ve always wanted to try this genre. My heart started to flutter in excitement when I started to read the script of this drama. I’ll try to share this feeling with viewers as much as I can. I’ll study and act hard to perfectly portray the lovely and confident character of Son Soo Jung. Please look forward to our drama and show support. Thank you.”

Jo Bo Ah was praised for her acting in her latest work, “Goodbye to Goodbye.” She played the role of Jung Hyo, a university student who unexpectedly becomes a single mother. She was also recognized for her sympathetic personality that reached out to chefs who own small restaurants in SBS’s variety show “Baek Jong Won’s Alley Restaurant.” She is acknowledged in both dramas and variety shows for her charms.

Jo Bo Ah & Yoo Seung Ho cast as the leads of new teacher romance drama

yoo-seung-ho-jo-bo-ah.jpg

It's been confirmed that SBS's newest teacher romance drama 'Revenge Is Back' has cast its male and female leads - Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah!


The romantic comedy tells the story of a woman named Son Soo Jung, who never let go of the #1 spot in her academic career, but who suffered a few pitiful failures in her teacher certification exams - resorting to a career as a part-time teacher. She finds a job at her old school, where she meets her arch nemesis Kang Bok Soo (played by Yoo Seung Ho). 

'Revenge Is Back' is set to air sometime in November, after 'Fox Bride Star'. Do you like the lead casting and the storyline so far?

Oh yay the lead actress has confirmed!!! I was so worried since the drama is going to air in December, which means they only have probably around two to three months to prepare and start filming (dramas film some episodes well in advance before it airs right?) and if they're going to be short on time if the female lead is not confirmed.

is absolutely adorable tho! I feel like they will look so well with one another! So she's the one who accused him of being a bully? Very interesting. Before the female lead description comes out, I thought she was going to be on the sideline while the main antagonist is going to be that first love, but turns out the first love is the female lead! At least this way the female lead is greatly involved in the plot and is not just there for the romance :blush:

You had me at Yoo Seung Ho...and then you throw in Jo BoA (she reminds me of Park BoYoung for some reason - cuteness overload) and I am in hook, line, sinker.  If the plot is half decent, it should make for great entertainment.  Count me in for December viewing...if my SBS live stream behaves.  It has the unenviable ability to sputter and freeze at inopportune moments mid drama causing me to hit the refresh button madly.  Last time it froze when LYY was asking YSY to "stay over" in Your Honor and Imma like "NOOOO"...the next frame after the refresh the credits rolled...  :P:lol:

OH YESSSS!!!!!!!!

 

COUNT ME IN!! YSH! I am ready to see you on-screen again :P :wub:

 

thanks @Berou for pulling me here ;)

 

 Hi :D !  My tagging worked :lol: !!

I'm so happy to see you again.  Will  you participate in the discussion this time?  Last time RL prevented you to do it. 

 

On a side note, YSH made a a cameo in the player drama due to his close relationship with Song Seung Heon and the production staff of the drama .  

 

Regarding the lastest casting news, I had no doubts JBA would accept it because it is a big opportunity, and I've read she has been playing the second lead characters for a while.  I'm a bit disappointed though, I was secretely hoping the writer would be replaced LOL. We have to wait and pray the writing will be decent. 

 

I read one comment in dramabeans and nodded my head :  this drama has certain vibes of the innocent man with the revenge part. And the innocent man is one of my all times favourite dramas :wub: , I became a huge fan of SJK because I got competely smitten by his portrayal of Kang Ma Ru. However in this case, there will be more fluff and the first love is the first female character.

Jo Hyun Sik's agency confirms him joining the drama.

He will play the role of "Ma Young Jun". He was a victim of bullying as a student and becomes a teacher to help students who are suffering from the same problem, but instead, even as a teacher he is being bullied by students. The moment he gives up, he will change 180 degrees and show a different character.

Kwak Dong Yeon Joins Yoo Seung Ho And Jo Bo Ah In New SBS Drama

Oct 5, 2018

by J. K

 

Kwak Dong Yeon has been confirmed for SBS’s upcoming drama!

On October 5, his agency FNC Entertainment told Chic News, “Kwak Dong Yeon is returning to the small screen through ‘Revenge is Back’ [working title] after his latest work ‘My ID Is Gangnam Beauty.'”

The young actor joins a cast including Yoo Seung Hoand Jo Bo Ah in the drama. “Revenge Is Back” tells the story of Kang Bok Soo (played by Yoo Seung Ho), who seeks revenge as an adult by returning to his childhood school, which he’d been expelled from after being falsely accused of bullying. Jo Bo Ah plays Son Soo Jung, Bok Soo’s first love who is now teaching at the school.

An initial report about Kwak Dong Yeon’s casting prior to FNC’s confirmation described that he will be playing the role of Oh Se Ho, an always-smiling new chairman of the board at the high school, who has had a hard life. It states that his character will be part of a love triangle.

Kwak Dong Yeon has previously appeared in dramas including “Moonlight Drawn by Clouds,” “Fight My Way,” “Into the World Again,” “Radio Romance,” and more.

Same here, I only participate in YSH's drama threads, sometimes I post on other threads but I end up stop posting.  I hope too,  I guess other IANAR folks and his other fans will come later. I should perhaps tag some of them to make them come out. @vangsweetie637 @soara @hyania @maj_loves @miye0n @paperboat04 @Unicaunnisansu  @2handsintertwined @2016moana @ferily  @findit  @evie7  @hiriena02  @sanaeozora

 

 

@sakura2016 became the victim of my nagging and rants :lol:. I'm sorry to her. Everytime a casting news came out, I went  to her for ranting, wondering why YSH was refusing to come back. Trust me. Even though it is a revenge drama with a highschool background, it is still  light in terms of " YSH's dark and melo" dramas. The melos he did before were full of drama, anguish and tears. He cried or had an anguished expression in every scene. Bullying is a sensitive topic and viewers might feel uncomfortable watching characters getting bullied, but we don't know what the writer has in mind for the plot. Maybe the drama won't touch on the bullying issue. 

 

 

Thanks for tagging me @Berou. Count me in. Excited to watch this drama. I must agree to some of you who worries about the writer, same thought, there will be doubts with writer and director but one thing for sure its YSH Drama and I have no doubts about his capabilities and i trust he will do his best. hoping that this thread will grow and will share more about this drama. 

 

BTW, thus anyone knows when will be the script reading and presscon for this project? (my apologies for being advance).

Im confused. The three main char dont seemed like a bad person. I think the accusations was caused by some kind of misunderstanding?

Yoo Seung Ho in a vengeful character again? count me in! I was very excited when I first heard the news of his come back but when the news of the writer, director and actress came out my excitement took a dip ( mainly because I'm not familiar with any of them). With that being said I will still give this show a try because it has Yoo Seung Ho in it . Rom Com is really not my genre, I lhave always liked Yoo Seung Ho in dark multi layered roles , I wanted to see him in a similar role but with a happy ending this time around but well all wishes aren't granted in this life so. ..Anyways I'll watch anything for my fav oppa, really hope this show works out for him, his entry into the hallyu list has been long over due. Hwaiting Oppa!!

I'm joining the  party of yoo seung ho's come back! 

The idea of this drama as SBS's buffer for their 2019's big show(s) kinda bothered me. Although nothing is really sure for now. I agree that we have to see first the quality of its materials once they become available.

3 of 4 YSH's post military dramas are penned by rookies. Nothing against them really, some rookie writers have this refreshing way of weaving stories (amazing writers gotta start somewhere) however, I'm wishing that some big name in the industry offer him a script one of these near years. 

For now, I'm keeping my excitement for BSIB. 
Where the star's Land will end by Dec 4 that gives BSIB a Dec 10 suppposed premiere. 
With two months to air, they'll probably have their script reading by this week. 
I haven't watch Jo Bo  Ah in any dramas, is this her first lead role? 
Her smile is charming, although I find it somehow 'richard simmons', I like her wide eyes too!, hope to see that unique charm in her character
