Presenting the cast of East of Eden

If that ain’t the picture of “triumphant return,” I don’t know what is.

The sizable cast of upcoming epic drama East of Eden held its production press conference on August 21, and trotted out all most of its big names (and it has many, although some were either not in attendance or weren’t photographed — no Lee Mi-sook?). The event was held at the drama’s open set location in South Gyeongsang province (located on the southeastern part of the peninsula, near Busan).

Everyone looks healthy and happy, although pretty-faced Song Seung-heon seems a little, um, smirkier than usual, doesn’t he? (I don’t think it’s his best look.)

The drama premieres August 25 on MBC (it’s a Monday-Tuesday-er).

The cast is, from left to right: Park Hae-jin, Han Ji-hye, Yeon Jung-hoon, Lee Da-hae, drama PD Kim Jin-man, Song Seung-heon, Lee Yeon-hee, and Jo Min-ki. (Too bad they didn’t decide to pose under their poster images, like some sort of performance-art onscreen-versus-reality juxtaposition. Or, you know, just for fun.)

 
Yeon Jung-hoon with Song Seung-heon, lookin’ mighty smug:

 
Lee Yeon-hee, positively radiating light:

 
Cheery-looking Han Ji-hye:

 
Lee Da-hae always comes off so conscious of how pretty she is, which is annoying, but I suppose justified since she IS pretty:

 
And cast:

Hmm....what do you mean conscious? I thought the pictures looked normal...... but maybe it's just me then. :)

"conscious" = she preens.

It's just my opinion, of course, but it's what I've gathered from watching her in numerous interviews, behind-the-scenes clips, and photos. I used to really love her after My Girl (she overacted, but in a bubbly, adorable way and she made that drama work) so I was really disappointed to see her whenever she wasn't acting. The impression has gotten worse over time. :(

lee da hae seems to have gotten thinner and thinner. i like her for so it makes me worried how she's trying to be like all those other stick-figured celebs. Though I have a hard-to-explain aversion to han ji hye - i have to admit she has a nice body with a bit of meat on her thighs- celebs should aspire to her body instead of the stick-thin mannequin look (lee da hae)

ooooh! me, too. i have this hard to explain dislike for han ji hye. her dramas were ok but i have an intense dislike for her real life persona. plus, i don't find her very attractive.

what exactly is this drama suppose to be about? i keep hearing it will start soon, but not much about the plot.

i saw a bts photo shoot of Lee Da Hae, she was modeling wedding gowns and walked on a beach, & tourists, i think Europeans, they were saying "Congratulations on your wedding", so funny. but she was around little kids & hi-fived them, she seemed nice. is she really dating Lee Dong Wook? cause that is another reason to not like her. just kidding.

Mmhhh.. no dennis oh? I think he is one of the popular cast of EOE. I wonder whether he is an unimportant role or he just walked out of the cast.

Javabeans -

I kinda get it when you say SSH looks "smirky". I liked him a lot as he made me cry a river on Autumn Tale, but lately I'm getting that "smirky, snobby" feel whenever I see a picture of him. Why I don't know. Just a vibe. His best friend SJS, on the other hand, I'm starting to appreciate. I see now that he is "different", may be deeper than I thought?

But I wish him success on East of Eden nonetheless. I am still looking forward to watching it.

"His best friend SJS, on the other hand, I’m starting to appreciate. I see now that he is “different”, may be deeper than I thought?"

Oh, I get the opposite impression. His image is the Archetypal Korean Man -- tough, tender, of the Brotherhood yet apart -- (and it should be noted this species of Sexy is endangered among the 20-something pretties today, Junki much?) But from his comments, he's more like the annoying little brother who wanted to be Lil Wayne, date a Wonder Girl, and live in a MTV Crib. Yo. I love this silly stud for that, and also how he loves his mum.

What I love about Song Seung-heon is how insincere he is at playing sensitive. Jun Suh weeping over Eun Suh had the narcissistic gravity of William Shatner crying over Spock. He's beautiful and beautifully vapid, and I love him for it.

"she preens."

Actually, I would argue that Han Ji Hye is the undisputed Queen of Preen, and it is that obnoxiously prideful bearing which makes her a fashion plate. She is to the winter collection what Liam Gallagher is to vowels.

Han Ji Hye was so cute in 19, but she must like long shows she just finished I Hate You, But It's Fine with it 150 plus run now she doing this with 50, guess a regular pay cheque is always nice.
lee da hae I think still is suffering from the success of My Girl, no matter what she did after that it was always going to be compared. Hopefully this big name drama can finally lay that baggage to rest. She` never going to be a Great actress but with her looks I really do not think that has been asked of her, just as long as she solid.

daydreamer, what is it in her real life persona that you don't like? I disagree with you. think she is the nicest person ever. she is this "what you see is what you get person". in fact she is good friends with Jung Ryeo Won and Han Ye Seul in real life.

i think lee da hae kind of gives off that kind of vibe too. however, i haven't watched too many clips of her so i can't be one to judge.

lee yeon hee is really gorgeous and she looks natural. i like song seung hoon a lot. ^___^ i haven't watched anything with han ji hye or han ga in's hubby so idk about them.

Hmm.... I hope other than the cast, the basic story will be worth watching.

I wonder, who exactly is the leading lady here? (In other words, who's not the 2nd or third that completes the love polygon?)

Leading lady is Lee Da Hae. Main triangle is between Song Seung-heon and Yun Jung Hoon over Lee Da Hae.

The original synopsis had this story progressing decades across generations. And, so, it's possible different characters and relationships mainly appear in different times. That or we'll get a Love Octagon. In the Love Octagon, choke holds, backhand slaps, snarky one-liners, random explosions and gratuitous crying are permitted and encouraged. Each round ends with an amnesia plot, a terminal disease plot, or in the case of SSH, a incest-but-not-really plot. However, accusations of nose surgeries are strictly taboo. You just don't get there. Also, English-speaking actors must demonstrate acting skills before entering the bloodiest of all love geometry.

I absolutely adore Han Ji Hye. I admire her for her choice of roles lately. From a mature role in the movie Humming to a sad character in EOE. Hope shs stands out in this role and prove herself more.

i actually wish for han ji hye as the lead actress. i like her since sweet18 and grew to love her after watching her latest drama(exactly before east of eden): likable or not. that 170+ episodes drama really grow in me and she did an excellent job. her characters really live. and yeah, she's lovable and adorable <3 and her real life also seems to be really nice and cheerful (after watching some of her interviews)

Eh, i kind of agree with you about lee da hae. most of the time in talk show or interview, she seems so conscious about her prettiness. or in my homeland, we call it, 'control', like controlling your movement so that u look pretty all the time.

EAST OF EDEN LOVE STORY
Song Seung-heon- Dong-cheol
Lee Da Hae- Hye-rin
Yeon Jeong-Hoon- Dong-wook

Hye-rin's(Lee Da Hae) first love is Yeon Jeong-hoon acting as Dong-wook, a king and gentle man. Dong-wook loves his family dearly and became a judge in revenge for his father's death. He is as ambitious as Hye-rin for becoming so far in his career. Hye-rin falls in love with his innocent eyes and heart.

Another love that Hye-rin encounters is Song Seung-heon acting as Dong-cheol who has lived a rough life. He is a wild spirit who can even give up his life just to achieve vengeance for his father's unjust death. Hye-rin falls in love with this man who has a passionate yet innocent heart.

Hye-rin is a different character compared to other bright and cheery characters that Lee has taken. Hye-rin is strong and serious. Let's see how this love triangle is resolved in this drama!

Lee Da Hae you look very skinny.
I've read that she got sick and get her into the hospital because of over work(too bad for her) but its good on the other side because she has given a chance to be part of this kind of drama to think that there are bunch of Korean actress who wanted to be the main leading lady for East of Eden and i think she really deserved it. go for it and do your best.

Song Seon-heun very masculine
every time i am watching him, i always looking forward to see his abs. :)
he looks good than before go for Song Seung-heon
