Veggie Store gets its bachelor, broadcaster, and leading lady

It’s confirmed: Ji Chang-wook will take the lead role in the drama series Bachelor’s Vegetable Store, which will air on cable (surprise surprise) on Channel A. The news was teased a while back after Yoon Shi-yoon dropped from the list of candidates, filling his schedule instead with the upcoming Me Too, Flower, and Ji was tapped to fill the slot.

Playing his love interest in her first leading role is Wang Ji-hye, who’s coming off a string of secondary roles in well-received dramas like Protect the Boss and President. Meanwhile, Ji Chang-wook will get rid of his lustrous warrior’s locks (sob) from Warrior Baek Dong-soo to portray the young hero here. Don’t get me wrong, he’s pretty any way you cut it (in this case, “it” being his hair), but it means for the time being we’ll have to say goodbye to this:

The drama is based on the true success story of a young man who turned a tiny (roughly 350 sf) vegetable store into a nationwide franchise. That young CEO, Lee Young-seok, began the operation in 1998 and expanded to 33 stores. A book was published in 2003, and now the story takes to the screen.

I’m pretty satisfied with the casting, since both Ji Chang-wook and Wang Ji-hye are rising stars with comic talent as well as dramatic. And while Ji is actually a year younger than Yoon Shi-yoon, he strikes me has having a more mature vibe, and less of an obvious noona-dongseng gap with Wang, who’s two years older than him. (Not that noona-love is a bad thing. Nope, not at all.)

Bachelor’s Vegetable Store was initially slated to air on cable channel jTBC, but it’s hopped over to Channel A instead. It premieres on December 21.

Wang Ji Hye is my favorite second lead <3
She makes her characters so fun to watch!

Hated the main girl and the main couple in Protect the Boss, but Ji Hye as the "ice cream girl" was adorable! ;)

Can't wait!

I'm also really excited for Wang Ji Hye's first lead role (though I don't share the hate with Jisung & Choi Kang Hee). I've been amazed by her performance since Friend, Our Legend and even in Personal Taste as the ever despicable Inhee-bot. But it was in Protect the Boss that my admiration turned to love. She made her character so real and relatable with her vulnerability that I was rooting for her the whole time.

I hope this drama turns out well since it would be such a waste of her talent if the story turns out to be full of the same ol' cliches that I've seen in a lot of dramas. Thankfully, it's on cable which have had amazing offerings recently. Crossing my fingers...

And may I just get it off my (meager) chest now that I have veryveryvery high hopes about the potential chemistry between these two leads. After what our poor Little Warrior went through over the last six months (:coughEmoNuncough:), he deserves to have some sparks!!

Do you think the veggie store owner took showers? You know... he would have needed to brood when his vegetables weren't selling.

But, of course!
Where do veggies grow?
In the soil.
What happens when you work with veggies?
You get dirty.
How do you clean yourself off?
You shower in the back of the shop...

With a scene where the lead girl misinterprets what seems like inappriate closeness between them?
I can see the writers:
"OK, so YSH shows up with something in his eye, and asks JCW to help remove it..."
That NEVER gets old!

0

I bet he's going to strip off everything, cos it's so hot out there, and he has to plant veggies and that's really hot work, so he toils in the hot sun, planting veggies from dawn to dusk,all absy and sweaty and soily. I bet he's a DIY guy, which means no workers to help him, and when he's done planting all those veggies, he's going to float slow-mo over to a barrel of cold water next to the garden (which he waters the plants with, if you're wondering what a barrel of cold water's doing there), and just POUR water all over himself, slow-mo, then we can see his abs ripple and roll slow-mo in the cascading water.

0

something where he gets the girl and SHOWERS happily ever after, don't you mean?

YY
Whyy cold water?
I think you were confused.
It is a vat of hot oil. Veggie oil.

That way, you can substitute the word "RUB oil" for "POUR water"
and "glistening oil" for "cascading water."

I feel better now that he is warm.

Ok. Now I'm not going to be able to even see one episode without thinking about a sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles.

OK, y'all, I'm here to police this thread. It has totally devolved. Instead of discussing the merits of the actor, you're only discussing imagining a sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles. That's gross. Every time someone says something, it's about his body, which is just sick. In fact, I think this entire thread has turned into an excuse for you overripe noonas to repeatedly mention imagining a sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles. And I am offended.

I am here to tell y'all that I'm tired of this ICOMYM shiz. From now on, I don't want to read anything mentioning any damned nonsense about a hot, sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles. You hear me? No more talk of a sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles.

And I certainly don't want to read any of you WITCHES discusses him taking showers to wash the dirt off of his rock-hard, muscled body, with the water gathering in rivulets as it cascades down his rippled chest to caress lower, ever lower to....

What the fcuk? Ahem, what were we talking about again? Oh yes, the acting! Yes, the acting will be wonderful, and rock-hard.

@Lahlita, you've made me see the light. You're so right! I feel totally ashamed of myself for imagining a sweaty JCW stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles.

After all, he's not a piece of vegetable. (celery comments aside.)

Respect! fellow ICOMYM members!

JCW's is a very good actor. Hear that ladies? When he's sweaty and stripping off everything and rubbing veggie oil all over himself, in slow-mo with that halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles, please please please, watch the emotions that play across his face. ok?

And when he's taking that shower to brood over his vegetables and to wash the dirt off of his rock-hard, muscled body, with the water gathering in rivulets as it cascades down his rippled chest to caress lower, ever lower to... I forgot... where was I?

Yes... When he does that, you really have to see the... what was I supposed to see, again?

Just so you all remember... I called JCW MINE all the way back in 2007 when he was a mere babe in the woods. Better start lining up with the bribes and/or buckets of cash if'n you want me to share his... um... veggie merits. :)

I'm sorry...did Lahlita say something? I was too busy rubbing veggie oil all over Celery King. In slow-mo, while a halo of light in the background accentuated his rippling muscles, and a cascade of water ran slowly down his rock-hard abs. (Except I think it was me drooling...shhhh)

If all devolution is this fun, count me in!
I am sitting in my darkened room giggling like an OW with a ICOMYM.

I have to agree with Lahlita, though, seriously, JCW is not just man candy for ogling. He is a human being with feelings and stuff. He should not have to be forced to delight us with his physical assets.

That is why I will step up to the shower and rub veggie oil all over him. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles.

99 degrees F is shorts and tank weather, or you could skip the tank altogether.

If the room has Veggie oil, and Chang Wook-shii I don't think these girls will have a problem with that. I wonder how the notoriously shy JCW feels being a noona killer now.

We have to ask if there is a break in rubbing him down any time soon. OR Oh OH!! We could send Veggie oil to his management company like the Roswell fans with Tabasco...tell him if the ratings get to 'insert random number here' then his challenge will be to rub the oil....for everybody to see...on tape. ahem...and his acting is superb.

My sentiments exactly! My hate for her character in PT was so bad that I actually considered not watching PTB because she was in it. Thankfully, all the raving over PTB changed my mind cause the drama was AWESOME and the actress totally redeemed herself! I found myself rooting for her and the JYJ guy (can't recall names and don't have time to look them up).

Looking forward to this drama!!

I thought her character in PT had moments that were very funny and so it was hard for me with the going back and forth on that...then I watched her in PTB, and I was like, ok, I LIKE this girl, she looks familiar...and then I put 2 & 2 together and came up with 4, finally, and all I can say is this: She's ready for leading roles. No more second lead for our girl! Let her shine!

Moo Won GOD! Hero/JaeJoong (Who I both love and hate, being that pretty should be against some law in some country SOMEWHERE), and I don't know anything about the music he sings.

I hope Chang Wook-shii can get over that shy problem, let it all out in this show with Ji Hye. He has it in him, AEB all the times he made chemistry from nothing with Emo-nun. Something along the lines of her dream scene seducing Moo Won God....yep something on those lines. Emo-Nun couldn't get it going so Ji Hye (whom I love BTW) needs to be the vicarious chick for me.

He didn't seem shy at all in Smile Donghae. In fact, I was surprised at how "touchy feely" he seemed to be and very comfortable with it at that. I think the WBDS issue had to do with emo-nun and the way it was written/directed.

Oh. Em. Ji Chang-wook! Holy sheeit. How does Korea pull off having boys who are so girl-pretty of face, and sexyfine-as-hell of body? It's messing with me something fierce. I must say, this is the best damned advert for eating your vegetables if I ever saw one.
*runs lips up and down stalk of celery*

I don't have anything intelligent to contribute to this discussion. Sorry.

No. You do NOT want to rub vegetable oil on THIS gumdo master's stomach. Eeeewww! He is old, fat, ugly and bald. I think I threw up in my mouth.

From all the hilarious comments here, I'm thinking this drama could be a groundbreaker in terms of plot: absy guy absily wakes up every morning, strips, scratches abs, showers, oils abs for max UV protection, goes to veggie plot with abs heaving beneath his veggie hoe, plants veggies, oiled (and scratched) abs glistening in the hot sun. Goes home. Showers. Scratches abs. Sleeps. Fastforward two weeks later. Harvest time! Guy harvests veggies, abs heaving beneath his baskets of veggies. Strips. Scratches abs. Showers....you get my drift....What an absmazing veggie plot-less plot!

I'm calling Webster's ASAP -- we MUST make sure the words "absmazing" and "absily" are added to the English dictionary when describing Celery King, walking amongst his veggie plots, glistening with veggie oil all over himself. In slow-mo. Preferably with a halo of light in the background that accentuates his rippling muscles...

Need to make sure this picture is placed right next to the narration, though:

LOL exactly -- It's everywhere! It's everywhere!! Have I just created a 'Wook Roll' instead? :)

I was gonna put up the companion shot from that photoshoot (the one with him in the extremely skimpy running shorts), but couldn't find it last night for some unknown reason... Probably just as well -- I might get TOSsed my salacious behavior. Tee hee.

Anyway. What were we talking about again? Oh yeah... SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

OMG! I feel like I am at the beginning of a movement.

**** Let the WOOK ROLLING begin! ****

Anytime you want to Wook Roll, you HAVE to use THAT photo. To disguise it, use the tiny url site.

It doesn't matter if you are discussing vacuum health, or tree lined gloves, you insert the link and direct people there.
They are Wook Rolled!!

I hereby swear to Wook Roll everyone at every opportunity. Javabeans and Girlfriday are going to toss me out of here for turning Dramabeansss into a pimp-site.

So let's see what we have for Ji Chang-wook.

- Oh. Em. Ji Chang-wook!
- Wook Rolled!
- Chang We Can Believe In.
- Rawr Vegetables: Providing your daily dose of Vitamin Ji.

Oy, I need to grow up and do some work. Stop pulling me down to your heinous depths, people!

LOL I've already Wook Rolled three people this morning, and I CAN'T STOP!! This deal could be HUGE! A really BIG THING!! It could be even labelled as the...

OCCUPY CHANGWOOK MOVEMENT!!!

Ji Chang-wook has sorta the same look as Lee Min-ho, but he's actually better looking.

JCW did a decent job of acting in WBDS.

Ji Chang Wook captivated me with his good looks & superb acting in WBDS. From there ( I searched cos I could not get enough of JCW) I found him as the adorable Donghae in Smile, Donghae. So I searched more & I watched his photoshoots & interviews. Unfotunately some have no subs. He can sing too! Quite a talent & what a beautiful body to go with his good looks & personality. Some of his interviews showed his shirtless body. Wow!

Maybe we'll get to see more of him shirtless in his vegie shop drama specially if he'd be sweating & get dirty. The weather is warmer during the vegie shop filming. In WBDS, he took off his shirt once for the novice nun to keep warm with. For that CR nagged him with a dirty look, Un poked/acupunctured him for showing off. How many more needles or knife (from the men) would poke him every time he took off his shirt! LOL, seriously...the cold weather must have prevented the shirtless look. Still...fully clothed & imagination...he got my full attention!

Can't wait to watch JCW in his vegie shop. I'd buy my fruits & vegies from him for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I'd volunteer to assist him at the shop & garden. Would he have a fruit & vegie farm as well?

Ji Chang Wook is so adorable, charming...& that infectious smile & grin...I melt! A superb actor. Best wishes to your vegie shop drama JCW!

1.. This is NOT a Wook roll.
2..The award for "that face should not be attached to that body" belongs to Bae Yong-joon.
I am usually a big fan of muscles on not-so-younger guys, but for some reason, these just creep me out.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

I didn't like the first picture...and in one or two he just really looks like John Lennon which..all muscle-y, plus, you know, dead..ick. I think that they didn't do a good job with the foundation make-up since he looks kind of...unreal.

But I do have to say that man has a lovely, lovely back. I don't think I've ever seen him in anything.

Sisters-in-Lust, let's close out this thread with something impressive I found while re-watching the WDBS Special Episode to help with the subbing project. (Note: This is NOT a Wook-Roll. I promise! :) )

This all happens about 15 seconds into the episode. Sorry for the lousy screencaps -- even after running the ep through Final Cut Pro, they're still kinda fuzzy. And although here Vitamin Ji is not coated in veggie oil and moving in slow-mo, while a halo of light in the background is accentuating his rippling muscles, with a cascade of water running slowly down his rock-hard abs... he is still wet, shirtless and absworthy. Good enough for me!!

Got to agree that Ji Chang-wook is more suitable to play this character than Yoon Shi-yoon. The reasons is Ji Chang-wook is able to portray a tough, leadership and matured character yet caring and able to express his emotions delicately at the same time. I've seen Yoon Shi-yoon in Baker King. His acting is still abit raw and sometimes he tend to over-express his emotions.
