Lee Yong-woo romances Yoon Eun-hye in Minidress
His drama Birdie Buddy may have hit the skids, but Lee Yong-woo well be getting right back to work on a new movie — his first — My Black Minidress, playing boyfriend to the film’s star Yoon Eun-hye (My Fair Lady).
The movie recently announced its lead quartet of actresses, which in addition to Yoon includes Park Han-byul (Oh My Lady), Cha Ye-ryun (Dr. Champ), and Yoo In-na (Secret Garden). The foursome are college friends who were all in the theater and film department together, and go through the ups and downs of twentysomething life together.
At first, I was disappointed with this casting, because while Lee Yong-woo is incredibly pretty to look at, his acting skills barely rate above “solid block of wood.” His scenes in Style were often painful to watch — he had no sense of emotion, line delivery, character awareness — although, to be fair to him, the whole drama was a mess. But upon further thought it seems he may not be the main male lead, given that his character is described as the one who opens Yoon Eun-hye’s eyes to love, but also introduces her to betrayal. Which suggests he’s more of an ex than the love interest.
My Black Minidress begins filming in mid-December and aims to release in theaters in March 2011.
