Lee Ki-woo joins Standby to romance Jung So-min

Lee Ki-woo has picked his next TV project, and well, that does it; now I’m just going to have to watch Standby, aren’t I? Especially since he’ll be embarking on a bickering romance with Jung So-min, the gullible village girl in the big city. Sweet!

As the latest addition to the MBC sitcom set in a television station, Lee Ki-woo plays a character named Ryu Ki-woo, which means he’s going to be playing Ryu Jin’s younger brother. (When actors are cast as siblings in sitcoms, they’ll often keep their first names and then just adjust the family name to match the elder actor, like Seo Ji-seok did in High Kick 3.)

The character of Ki-woo has an optimistic, sociable nature and is full of good cheer. He’s handsome and charming on the outside, but in actuality he’s a mischievous type, and “has everyone wrapped around his finger.” What, like that’s bad? *Unwraps self momentarily.* I love how both brothers are described as looking cool and perfect, but are all quirky on the inside. (Elder brother Ryu Jin is desperate to make it to the big time as a news anchor and starts on a campaign to advance himself at the station.)

Jung So-min lives downstairs from Ki-woo, and the two will embark on a “cute love story.” Aww, I can’t wait. Standby premieres in April.

There is just no way I won't watch it. Just hope the storyline is as cute and funny as it sounds! :D

Yeah!! This is a yes!! Mr Onion I hoped at last you can get the girl! He is much suited with Jung So Min than Ryujin & Im Shiwan.

Hoped that RyuJin will also get a girl around his age. He always play the second fiddle except for ATK maybe.

Ojakgyo Brothers opened my eyes to the awesomeness of sitcoms. And I loved Lee Ki-woo in FBRS, so I think I'm in. I gave up dramas until after my thesis is due in May, so this is going to be a great reward!!!!

i'm happy for Kiwoo (that shirtless scene will forever reside in my brain). but Jung So Min? really? lol. i hope she's not as annoying as she was in Playful kiss. cause she pissed me off in that drama. but i guess that wasn't really her fault. it's just that her character was worse then Geum Jan Di. well, i'm still gonna watch it. hahahahahaa.......

Hum, Jung So Min did very well in PK, if you watched the Taiwanese version you would know that it isn't the actress but the character that is annoying.

She did an annoying-cute character, and for that I'm very pleased, she also had to carry the entire drama over her shoulders, poor girl.

Glad to see Jung So Min finally back in another project, she is too talented and adorable and paired with Lee Ki Woo it will definitely be cuteness overloaaaad. I'm dying already just imagining the pairing. Now if only this will be subbed... *crosses fingers*

I wanna get into a sitcom. I really want to watch Vampire Idol but we see how that's going, so hopefully this gets subbed because Lee Ki Woo! Also sitcoms are only 30 minutes episodes each right? I can do that.

The longest drama I've watched thus far was 95 episodes (45 min each) and it was a melodrama. I can DO THIS.

High Kick 3 is actually 21 minutes per episode. So even if there are 5 eps a week it's still shorter than the 2+ hours a week of a miniseries.

Exactly, so it's not so bad. And you can always let the episodes build up for a week then watch those. Then let them build up for another week and watch those....

I'm in! I actually love sitcoms more than regular dramas. Granted I don't always finish watching the whole series (haven't finished either high kick 2/3), I do enjoy the short time frame (how long each episode is) and the family theme behind it without all the angst (:
