Cast of You’re Beautiful buoyed by fan support

Fan support has been ardent, to say the least, for the SBS drama You’re Beautiful and its young cast. The drama’s lead, Jang Geun-seok, had expressed feeling disappointment that the ratings remain lower than hoped for and that he’d felt responsible as the main cast member. In reaction, fans to jump into action to show their love of the drama.

As you may know by now, he’d written a message to that effect on the drama’s homepage last week, saying, “I wonder whether the reason for the ratings being lower than we thought may be because I’m not portraying the Hwang Tae-kyung character as fully as I could be. If not, maybe the drama isn’t receiving more love because of me as Jang Geun-seok.”

After learning this, Jang Geun-seok’s fan club mobilized both on- and offline in full force to show their overwhelming support. His fan club forum is overrun with supportive messages. Fans also got together and delivered the cast and crew a buffet meal on their film set, which served 100 people. (The photos above and below are from that buffet lunch on October 30.) They’ve also sent presents like vitamins and letters rooting on the production.

Jang expressed his gratitude, saying that he was cheered by all the support by fans who are “like eels who give me energy.” (Eels are relatively expensive and eaten with the belief that they give added energy and stamina.) He added, “I’ll do my best through the end with a grateful heart.” His co-stars Park Shin-hye, Lee Hong-ki, and Jung Yong-hwa said, “Thank you for loving our Geun-seok hyung.”

Meanwhile, on November 2, Lee Hong-ki wrote his own message which he posted on the drama’s website, asking for fans’ continued support. His message read, “Our You’re Beautiful team filmed on the weekend from morning till night. We began filming in September, and already two months have passed and the drama is half over. I feel the difficulty of the actors and staff as we see the drama air scenes we had shot the day before. Even with the tough schedule, as I see the staff who are always smiling and our truly praiseworthy lead actors Jang Geun-seok hyung, Shin-hye, and Yong-hwa, I feel really secure, and coming to the set is a lot of fun.”

He added, “After I finish shooting the drama as Jeremy, I will return to FT Island as Hong-ki, and I’m busy preparing for our concert on the 14th and 15th. I’m working hard on the drama too. Everyone, please give a lot of support to You’re Beautiful through the end.”

The drama has confirmed that it will end on the 26th with Episode 16. Note that this is NOT a cut-down of episodes, and I think the number is probably appropriate for this story. The production had left the door open in the beginning to extend the episodes to 20, but that was always going to be an option only if the drama proved to be a ratings hit.

Note: I received a message from soompi-er Jennifer who is putting together a project for fans of the show to send support messages to the drama production. She asked that I spread the word. So if you are interested, the following are the details. (Additionally, you can check out the You’re Beautiful forum at Soompi.com.)

“You’re Beautiful” Fan Photo Project!

If you want to participate, and I really hope you do, all you have to do is take a picture of you with one of the following sentences:

I like Minami because….
내가 미남이를 좋아하는 이유는…

“Fighting YAB cast and crew!”
미남이시네요 제작진과 출연진, 화이팅!

“Feel the YAB love from the whole world”
미남이시네요에 보내는 전세계로부터의 응원을 알아주세요!

“Jang Geun-Seok we love you!”
장근석, 사랑해요!

“Park Shin Hye we adore you!”
박신혜, 정말 좋아해요!

“Lee Hong Ki you are the greatest!”
이홍기, 최고에요!

“Jung Yong Hwa you rule our world!”
정용화, 짱이에요!

“You are beautiful – the best show in the world!”
미남이시네요 – 세계최고에요!

“UEE – we love to hate you! Great Job”
유이, 미워서 좋아요! 진짜 잘하고 있어요!

Translation was kindly provided by pacepace!

Write them down on something like paper or anything you can think of! BE CREATIVE! Then take your picture! Please send it to: [email protected]. We will collect the pictures and put them into a slide show. Additionally we will print them out.

We are now cooperating with DC Gallery who will deliver our oversea fan project personally to the set.

Since the drama won’t be on too long anymore we have a very very tight schedule!

So the Deadline for the Photo OP is Friday, November 6, 6 pm GTM. If your picture arrives later then that I cannot promise that I will be in the slide show. I’m sorry about it but as said the schedule is very tight.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  1. First of all take a picture and send it to [email protected]
  2. Spread the word. Tell people to come here and join. If you are in other communities tell them about our project! If you have friends, parents, student bodies, bosses, teachers or strangers willing to take a picture with a sentence from above take them in.
  3. Join our community on Facebook: Mi Nami http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#/home.php?ref=logo
  4. Be creative in your picture
  5. Sooner or later we have to set up a donation so we can give pao some money for printing out the pages. Please bear with me until then and remember that 3 dollars could already buy some flowers!

*sniff* I was hoping for 20 episodes.

I can live with 16, though, just as long as each episode remains as wildly hilarious as the previous.

In fact, I will take anything as this point...

I agree, 16 is perfect for episodes. I'm so excited for the upcoming ones. It seems soooo good. I'm glad that the fans in Korea are backing up our YAB crew ^_^ Makes me very happy to know they are receiving some love.

Can't wait for your RECAPS!!!!!!!!!!

JB thank you for the info, really!! I will try to take the pic this week and send it asap.

I think 16 ep are ok, because sometimes trying to reach more episodes only distortion the plot, and the original story in the end tends to be weird.

I am sure the fan project has helped cheer and motivate the casts and crew. Sigh...How i wish the drama can be extended further than 16 episodes. Throughout the episodes, i have seen JGS chameleon-like ability to show his anger, disgust, intrigue,vulnerability. curiosity, jealousy etc.. with his eyes and facial expressions and even body language...Now can't wait to see him showing his love to PSH in the drama. This drama rocks.....

I'm not too crazy about Jang Geun Seok's blouse... but, I have to say that he is an amazing actor and his character is becoming more and more endearing. he is the reason that I'm watching this drama along with the fact that the script is well written. I hope their ratings increase.

Thanks for sharing the news, JB! It helps to lessen the agony of waiting for the next episode of YB; about 8 more hours to go till I can watch ep 9...

I’m not too crazy about JGS’s blouse either, or for that matter, many of the blouses he wears in YB, but he rocks the character HTK.

Thanks JB for feeding us with these articles while all of us waiting for the new episodes. We are all "sick" with addiction to YV and need your medicine to alleviate some of the longing feeling......

That they won't extend the length of the drama is disappointing, but expected. Well, given that most series that extended their run turn out to be draggy towards the end, perhaps this isn't that bad. I'll just miss all the crack and bits of warmth from the drama.

Good to hear that the all the fans' support is reaching YB cast ^^

As for the length of this drama, as much as I like it and will miss it a lot when it's over I DO think that 16 episodes is the right episode length. Considering the story I think it'd get draggy if extended to 20 episodes, so I'd rather that it ended at its best.

Oh the woes of fangirling...

16 is fine...*fingers crossed for a sequel* I love the chemistry all the actors have, and as everyone said, JGS really shines in this role. Can't wait to see more of him. Next episode is only a few hours away!!!

The photo project sounds great!

What fans put together to support their idols never ceases to amaze me... hope the cast feels strongly encouraged by all of this. Been looking at bts photos and vids (yup addict here) and noticed how these young actors are starting to look really tired and a few years beyond their age... hope they will get some rest with the tight schedule, esp of the flu outbreak and such... remember how the bbf cast looked after they were done shooting... really won't want a repeat performance of that.

I am happy with 16 eps, regardless of how great Hong Sisters writing is.. Hong Gil Dong should really have been 20 eps instead of 24 and My Girl was a good length at 16.

Back to finishing a paper then catching the live... A few more hrs to go!!
