Triple-teaming the Triple team

(Yeah, the headline’s a bit of a stretch. But I couldn’t resist.)

Wha–? Lee Seon-kyun is going to be in MBC’s figure-skating trendy drama Triple?

I mean, I guess it kind of makes sense. He’d starred in director Lee Yoon-jung‘s earlier series Taereung National Village (part of MBC’s Best Theater anthology). Following that, he’d agreed immediately to appear in Coffee Prince when she was planning that series. Now that she’s planning her next series, why not cast an actor with whom she’s had a good working relationship? This’ll be Lee Yoon-jung’s third drama series, and the third time she teams with Lee Seon-kyun.

Still, Triple seems like an odd choice, at least at first glance. (He should be moving on and doing hard-boiled crime thrillers and spare indie dramas with guys like Jang Dong-gun!) In this drama series, he’s been cast in the role of an ad agency exec who’s described as straightforward and honest with a sensitive side (so, like most of his roles then). The drama stars rookie actress Min Hyo-rin as its young figure-skating lead, but Jung Il-woo has been removed from the casting list (he was to play a speed skater) following his jump to another MBC series, Iljimae.

I’ll probably be watching Triple when it airs in January, but I’m on the fence as to whether it’ll be candy-coated fun, or a train wreck in the making.

Whaaaaaaat?

It's great that he's doing this for Lee Yoon Jung - it's always nice to see people getting along and wanting to work together multiple times. But fo' seriously, Lee Seon Kyun deserves something better. "Triple" just doesn't look very good at all...And it sounds like he's been typecast yet again! Don't people realize that he can play different roles? Remember when he wanted to play the serial killer in the film "Our Town", but then they cast him as the detective instead? Because it "suited his image" better or something? What a load of bull. Didn't anyone watch "Fugitive Lee Doo Yong"?

I am not happy about this. Not at all.

^Agree with you both. As much as The Voice will always, ALWAYS light up my trendy drama screen (and apparently Lee YoonJung's viewfinder^^), he deserves better than becoming typecast.

First noticed him as the slimy PI in "The Customer is Always Right" and maaaan he was good. Give him more challenging material and he will rawk it.

I agree he should be in hard-hitting crime dramas rather than trendy dramas ESPECIALLY figure skating trendy dramas!

for triple, they should have used someone young. i mean if jung illwoo stayed with the project, it matches him with the whole ice skating thing. its kind of weird to see lee seon kyun in a drama like this.

LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM !!! if the man is good at being understanding in the face of melodrama, sitting crossed legs (giggle !!) , and eye candy then don't change a good thing-he's SO cute in a more mature sense!!! he's always the ideal man with the tragic flaw of being too ideal

Its the voice. Man he has a sexy voice. I'm kind of excited about this drama not least because it will have YKS. Two of my favorite guys in one rolled up burrito drama.
