The ladies of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Now that the pretty, pretty boys have been cast for Flower Boy Ramyun Shop — that would be 49 Days’ Jung Il-woo and A Star’s Lover’s Lee Ki-woo — we have the ladies who will join them.

Cast in the romantic lead opposite Jung Il-woo is Lee Chung-ah, which I think I’m pretty happy about. Her most recent dramas have been dailies (Pumpkin Flower Soon-jung and Everybody Cha Cha Cha) so that means that while she’s fairly well-known back at home, her profile is a bit lower for those of us abroad who gravitate more toward prime-time dramas and films. But I do recall her being cute and funny in Accidental Couple (she played Hwang Jung-min’s sister), and she was even cuter and funnier as the Korean-Japanese student who bickers with, then falls for, Park Ki-woong in My Tutor Friend 2. She was also in the recent Gong Yoo—Im Soo-jung romantic comedy Finding Kim Jong-wook.

In Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, Lee Chung-ah plays Eun-bi, a 25-year-old university student who’s preparing for the civil service exam, who manages the ramyun shop populated by a staff of pretty boys. Sort of like Coffee Prince, except the heroine’s the boss and one of her romantic interests (Lee Ki-woo) is employed as her genius chef.

Interestingly, Jung Il-woo’s prince-like chaebol character is a high school student, and heir to a food product company. I’d expected that Jung would one again be part of a noona romance (he’s 24, she’s 26), but I didn’t think he’d be that young. I suppose high school students in Korea can be as old as 20, so it may not be such a big issue, and hey — it could be as cute and appealing as the Gong Yoo—Gong Hyo-jin couple in Biscuit Teacher Star Candy.

Then there’s new face Kim Ye-won (who was a Vietnamese housekeeper in Romance Town) playing a high school teacher. She’s a confident modern woman whom the men see as prime “bride material” (ugh, that phrase); I’m gonna bet her male students think so too.

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop is scheduled for 16 episodes to follow Birdie Buddy on cable channel tvN, premiering in late October. Eee! I’m excited.

What?!
Only two flower boys?
Maybe Jung Il-woo can get his best buds (Lee Min Ho and Kim Bum) to join him in the show.
Now that will be awesome! :)

The girls are okay. I don't know much about them so we will see how they fare.

i didn't recognize who she was at first, because her eyes look so different.

i wonder if she got them "changed".. she looks better than before.

I wish the writer made JIW's character a college student at least then the age difference would not be too significant. It just does not seem right for a 25 year old college graduate to be involved in a highschool student... at least to me it doesn't.... As much as I loved Biscuit Teacher, I had a hard time with the age difference :) I do not mind a wide age difference when they are both grown up but romance with a highschooler...i dunno...

I agree. I don't mind big age differences when they're both adults. It's sorta reminds me of those situations where the students dates the teacher. We shall see.

I was kinda hoping they would just cast more pretty boys and make this a bromance drama. I guess you can't have Jung Il Woo and eat him too.

lol. A la Antique? I think popular culture has been swinging toward prominent 'bromances' these days anyway... so I'm sure we'll be seeing some of that haha :D

Jung Il Woo always has the noona-dongseang romances huh? Is that just his image or something? Or did that formula always work for him and that's why they keep it going?

I dont mind it, just curious. Now that I've seen him in a lot of those type of romances, it's hard for me to imagine him as the "lead" in terms of a relationship. He seems to be more of the "beta" to a female (despite the High Kick romance :D)....

maybe he kept flunking and flunking in school and just couldn't graduate. i hope that's the case -that he's just back to school to get that coveted diploma.

This is the news I've been waiting for. I LOVE LEE CHUNG AH!! Alot of her dramas are never subbed because they're long or not as popular. I am so excited and I am sure this will be subbed since Jung Il Woo is in it. Jung Il Woo, Lee Ki Woo, and Lee Chung Ah, all of my favorites are in here. Thanks Javabeans for this wonderful news :)

I was drooling so much after Kang Dong Won ... that everything else was prop for him... but I loved her interpretation of the heroine
When I saw her in Actresses Butler I was waaaaaaait... the girl from Temptation of wolves is this mature woman? No way! In real life she is more mature than her age. I wonder how she copes with these childish young men around her (give them a nintendo and they forget about everything else)

I love love LOVED My Tutor Friend 2. It was such a quirky funny movie that, unfortunately, wasnt widely embraced. Imo, it wasnt as campy as My Tutor Friend 1 but it was a lot more realistic/fun.

That said, I'm really looking forward to this.

1) Prime eye candy
2) Super romance comedy vibes coming from this.

Omo.

Having only earned my Kang Dong-won fangirl badge a few weeks ago (truly regret not listening earlier to gfs who ragged on me to watch his stuff.. but better 7 years late than never..) I saw Temptation of Wolves within the last month.

I really liked the girl in ToW, but until I read some of the comments, had no idea that the Lee Chung-ah mentioned and shown above is her! I heard mixed reviews on Tutor Friend 2, but knowing that it's her, DL-ing right now!

The movie itself is a bit slow, but definitely quirky.

Mostly, I loved it for Park Ki -woong's acting and her interactions with him.

I thought i saw a clip on u-tube Kim Ye Won singing the OST for New Gisaeng Tales ? But her name was labelled (wrongly?) Kim Sun Ah ???

Which is which now ? Is she a singer turned actress, did she really sing for New Gisaeng Tales OST? Or maybe there's a singer named Kim Sun Ah who looks exactly like Kim Ye Won.......

Lee Chung Ah!!!! Yes, she's totally versatile, loved her in My Tutor 2 as crazy fun Park Ki Woong's perfect foil... awesomely innocent in the heartbreaking Romance of their Own. She was great as the loving sister in Accidental Couple, initally heartbroken in Everybody Cha Cha but gets her man in the end.... Just love her and joining the cast the handsome cast. Pumpkin Flower had all the episodes recapped, long but whatever she does is always worthwhile (to me....) thanks.

JB, I hope that you and GF will recap this!!! The cast is quite promising.....thanks
