First things first: Man oh man, Jae Hee, it is so good to see you back!
But moving on to Lee Soo-kyung: IS SHE CRAZY??
Lee, you may recall, recently took a leading role in cable sitcom You’re Here, You’re Here, You’re Really Here — that show on the yet-to-premiere cable channel MBN that touts itself as the “Korean Friends.” That show has begun shooting and will air as a daily sitcom for 120 episodes, making its broadcast run about six months long. And yet, here comes the news that she as also taken on a leading role in another cable show, the Channel A drama Color of Woman.
Color of Woman is a Monday-Tuesday drama that premieres on December 5; You’re Here, You’re Here, You’re Really Here is a daily sitcom that premieres on December 5 also. What in the what? How on earth is Lee Soo-kyung going to headline both? Has she found the door to the fourth dimension and learned how to function without sleep? Or did she manage to figure out how to work that cloning machine, nixing the possibility of evil clones? ‘Cause that is some craziness right there, folks.
Color of Woman held its production press conference on the 29th, which is where these photos come from. The cast made do without Lee Soo-kyung, who was too busy shooting the other show to make it. Yeesh. I’m not surprised.
Color of Woman stars Jae Hee, and recently replaced Eugene (Creating Destiny) with Yoon So-yi (Warrior Baek Dong-soo) when the former’s sister was involved in a serious car accident that shook the actress up badly.
The drama takes place at a cosmetics company and showcases the fierce rivalry between two careerwomen, and depicts a “frank and bold romance.” That means sparks will fly as Lee Soo-kyung and Yoon So-yi face off in a showdown. Or many repeated little showdowns. Lee Soo-kyung’s character is free-spirited and possesses an appeal that’s simultaneously sexy and pure — sort of what has marked her own image for most of her career. She’s honest but not a pushover, and harbors lofty ambitions, which includes using her looks and wiles to snare a perfect husband and move up in the world.
That makes her the opposite of Yoon So-yi, who wants to succeed purely based on merit. Jae Hee plays the supposedly perfect chaebol man, which’ll make him a likely target for Lee, only he’s being set up to romance Yoon So-yi instead. Shim Ji-ho (Frozen Flower) rounds out the cast as a warm, gentle character who gets involved in friendships and potential lovelines with both ladies.
