Park Ki-woong is autistic again


Nam Sang-mi, Park Ki-woong

Park Ki-woong (Story of a Man) is the latest to join the cast of KBS’s drama Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang [천하무적 이평강], which has already cast Nam Sang-mi (Gourmet), Ji Hyun-woo (My Sweet Seoul), Cha Ye-ryun (A Star’s Lover), and Seo Do-young (Friend, Our Legend).

Pretty decent cast, actually. Not so sold on the story…

The drama is the modern-day reimagining of the tale of the Fool On-dal and Princess Pyeong-gang, which somehow takes on the topic of golf (er?); Nam Sang-mi and Ji Hyun-woo fill the lead roles. Nam’s character is Pyeong-gang, the resourceful daughter of a golf course planner, while Ji plays On-dal, the son of a rich family. They strike up a romance despite their class differences and a lot of bickering. (I’m not sure how this is related to the original tale of On-dal and Pyeong-gang, unless it’s a reversal.)

Meanwhile, Park Ki-woong may finally be moving away from his prior image as a guy who was famous for not a whole lot (he admits to not understanding how to work on his acting until his recent noteworthy turn as an adorable autistic financial genius in Story of a Man). Previously known more for his cute and quirky appearance than anything, I’m going to guess he owes SOAM at least a little for this latest character, who is also autistic and speaks with a stutter due to a traumatic memory of losing his parents at a young age in a landslide. He finds comfort in music and rap. (Park is currently busy studying his character and practicing his rap/dance moves.) The character later falls in love with divorcee Yeon Mi-ju (bleh), but the family opposes the match because of their age difference.

Are you wondering how the story fits together? So am I. I’m not so sure about the writer-director combo, since Park Kye-ok wrote the frustrating Cain & Abel and Lee Jung-seob directed Hong Gil Dong, which was written and acted better than it was directed.

Unbeatable Lee Pyeong-gang began filming on October 1 and will premiere on KBS Mondays and Tuesdays following Princess Has Returned on November 9. Good luck going up against Queen Seon-deok!

Oooh, Nam Sang Mi... She's a fav of mine!

Liked her a lot in Bad Family, not as much (but still a lot) in Gourmet. I am going on the assumption that Sweet Spy was never made.

Aww, sweet little Kyung-tae gets a girlfriend! :-) I like Nam Sang-mi as well.

Every time I read something about the cast of SOAM it makes me want to watch it all over again.

Nam Sang Mi is one of my favorites, yay! Park Ki Woong was pretty cute in When It's at Night.

As much as I like Nam Sang-mi, Seo Do-young and Park Ki-woong this drama's storyline sounds like a drag so I'll probably skip this one...

Nam Sang-mi, I just want to stare at her pretty pretty face and darling smile during any scene she is in.

I still need to watch Gourmet, not a big Kim Rae Won super-fan (sorry, langdon-unni).

I liked her chemistry with Lee Jun-ki in Time Between Dog and Wolf (though her character was excessively annoying, but it wasn't her fault or any acting deficiency - so no harm, no foul).

I'm looking forward to this - I think NSM can do bickering biddy quite well! Maybe they have a chance against QSS, from what I read, QSS has apparently pulled an EoE and gone loco on the plot development. Regardless, a mid-to-high teens would be successful for a rom-com like this, I'm assuming?

I like Nam Sang Mi too. She is natural and doesn't act cutesy. Yes, she looked great with Lee Junki.

i LOVE modern-day retellings of fairy tales and i love the tale of Ondal and Pyeong-gang- however....making Ondal rich....seriously, giving into traditional kdrama conventions or breaking away from the almost trend right now of the rich girl and the poor guy?

Awww Nam Sang-mi and Park Ki-woong would've been adorable! I guess Ji Hyun-woo is ok too.

Haha, I actually think Yeon Miju is hilarious. Not a good actress by a mile but she's got good flair for comedy. A lot of people hated her character in Just Looking, but she was so funny as a ditzy dummy character. I'm looking forward to this.

Hmm b/c of Sweet Spy, Nam Sang-mi is eh on my list. Why did it have to be Sweet Spy out of everything that I saw her in first? Bad first impression for me lol.

Well if it's interesting, I'll watch it for Park Ki-woong (:

& about Queen Seon Duk, I have to agree that it's... not as exciting as before. I used to watch the new episodes right away when they come out but I'm like 2 weeks behind now... so maybe this drama will have a chance haha.
