Lee Min-ki sings for Oishii Man

Lee Min-ki (Romantic Island, Mixed-up Investigative Agency) is about to come out with his next movie, the Korea-Japan joint production Oishii Man, which co-stars Ikewaki Chizuru (Josee, the Tiger and the Fish).

The film follows a musician in a slump (Lee), who travels to a small town in Hokkaido, Japan, where he has an awkward first encounter with a young woman (Ikewaki) who lives in and operates a small boarding house with her grandmother. (Naturally, the two fall in love.)

In the first part of the trailer below, you can hear Lee singing the background music (as you may know, Lee is something of a music fan and has sung as the featured vocalist on a few songs here and there). Although the descriptions make the movie sound sedate and sad, the preview has a light and quirky vibe to it, which pretty is pretty much how I like my Lee Min-ki best.

It doesn’t look like a big part, but the trailer includes Jung Yumi (whom I loved in Que Sera Sera), who also happens to be Lee Min-ki’s co-star in their upcoming thriller, Billion.

Oishii Man releases on February 19.

*swoon* he always picks roles that fit him to a T, dunnee? i loved him as taebong in dal ja's spring and in MIA... this movie does feel a little heavy, but i like it when he exerts some of his drama muscle, he gives his more dramatic portrayals a really lee min ki-ish quirkiness that makes him so lovable... which, actually, makes the dramatic scenes more heartbreaking, because you root for him all the more.

when is this out again? :) can't wait!

I liked Ikewaki in Josee, the Tiger and the Fish and this movie does look like a very quirky and different . Lee Min-ki looks a little bit like Kenichi Matsuyama in some parts.

I'm sure most have forgotten by now the other Oishii Man trailer in which you can hear more of his vocals for the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4r1EiE_8Ts (this trailer has a much sadder tone to it)

I just got a chance to see & hear a 57 clip from Min Ki's 2009 B-day bash held by fans where he plays the guitar--his voice is just dreamy! If you want to check it out, you'll have to stop by Min Ki's daum cafe, as it can't be uped anywhere else per request of the admin of his daum cafe.

And Locksmith Music has created a myspace acct for Min Ki: http://www.myspace.com/locksmithminkilee

Yea! I actually requested more Lee Min Ki news back in the BoF news post! Even if it was just a strange coincidence, I really really like you, Javabeans. ;-) Lee Min Ki is so cute and charming, I always get happy just seeing his transcendentally adorable face.

I don't see how this movie can be comparable to Virgin Snow, which was a movie totally missing a plot, me thinks. Virgin Snow was fluffy eye candy. This one looks a bunch better. The trailer looks better than all of Virgin Snow. Lee Jun Ki lost my number one spot because of that movie. Now it's all Go, Lee Min Ki!!!

I've been missing Lee Min Ki. When is making another drama? Why do they always seem to give him the weirdest hairstyles? Still love his look in RRL better. Do you guys know where I can watch "Romantic Island", his movie with Eugene, with English subtitles?

dramabeans, was that jung yu mi in the preview as well? she appeared for like a quite second with really crazy hair, i might add. haha.
good to see Lee Min ki in something, though, he should do something about that haircut of his. i like the neat-looking Lee Minki. movie looks okay. nothing special though.

Lee Min Ki's and Jung Yumi's first collaboration was for the trailer promoting the 2007 Jecheon International Music & Film Festival, where the two portrayed love interests.

i have adored lee min ki since i first saw really really like you. and even more so in dalja's spring. i like how his whole essence is that of an oxymoron. seriously how can such an underdog turn out to be an alluring leading man? the answer is lee min ki. this movie seems like its gonna be good too. thanks dramabeans!

the first and only time I've heard Lee sing was on that great show X-Man and then it didn't sound so great. But hopefully he has gotten better

sounds similar to movie I watched while in Hong Kong, except it was guy from Japan meeting girl in Hong Kong. The grandfather of the girl owns a ramen shop that's about to close down, so hmmm, not that similar. Eh. I think that was the extent of the similarities(well the guy sings too... I don't know why, I could only catch parts of it, as his japanese parts are subtitled in Chinese)

This should be good!! Hey, don't forget about Ikewaki Chizuru!! She is a brilliant actress. I've seen her in other films including "Strawberry Shortcakes" and "Kinpatsu no Sougen (Across a Gold Prairie)" which has become one of my favorite Japanese non-mainstream film. I'm looking forward to this. Thanks for info.
