Lee Jong-hyuk rounds out the Gentleman quartet

Filming has begun on the new Jang Dong-gun drama A Gentleman’s Dignity, and stills of the leading man foursome (do we still call them F4 when they’re north of forty?) have been released, on the heels of the announcement that they finally found the fourth member of this posse in Lee Jong-hyuk (Crime Squad, Chuno). Lee Jong-hyuk! Whee!

His character is Jang Dong-gun’s bestie, and he’s married, but has yet to grow into it. Uh… I’m not sure marriage is something you can ease yourself into there, buddy. Makes sense if all his bros are single though. His is the most outright comic role, apparently, so that’ll be a fun change of pace from his usual broodiness. Except, no one does broody like him.

Jang Dong-gun stars as the cold architect with a sharp tongue; Kim Suro the innocent-but-macho guy who’s got no game; Kim Min-jong the super-considerate lawyer (so far he seems to be the only actual gentleman in this group of gentlemen); and Lee Jong-hyuk the happy-go-lucky, married playboy.

They look like they’re a whole lot of trouble, is what. Are they trying to look up a girl’s skirt in that first shot? I get the feeling the title’s gonna be more ironic than I expected.

A Gentleman’s Dignity premieres May 26 on SBS.

i'm hoping i'm right that the WB is Won Bin?! cause that was my first reaction when they said JDG is headlining a drama.

I wish to see Won Bin and Kang Dong Won (after his duty) back on the small screen. but if WB comes back, i hope (though i'm doubting it) that he'll take on a RomCom character/genre.

Yippee! I can't believe it! :)

Now, for my actual comment; I can't believe Jang Dong-gun hasn't done any drama since 2000's All about Eve. He's like one of the biggest stars in Korea, if I'm not mistaken. Though I guess when stars become A-list, they start to concentrate more on doing movies than dramas. But still, it's been 12 years!

This is my 2nd most anticipated drama of 2012 (second to Joo Won's Bridal Mask). There are just too many dramas, that I'm having a troube keeping up! Is this going to be like the "May Madness" of 2011?

Lol

their character also quite similar with F4

but im can't stop laughing when imagine kim suroo as jihoo sunbae

lol yeah but the underworld guy is also pretty playboy-y too and since kim minjong 's character is described as a considerate gentleman I figured he's closer to jihoo sunbae.

0

So to sum up eveything:

Jang Dong-geon -> Goo Jun-pyo without the annoying perm since he's old and the hair wouldn't hold out...

Kim Min-jong -> Yoon Ji-hoo without the noble idiocy syndrome since he's way too old to be acting like he's 20-ish...

Kim Soo-ro -> So Yi-jeong???????

Lee Jong-hyeok -> Goo Jun-pyo's father wakekekekekekekekekekekek~!!! Song Woo-bin...after joining the army becomes Lee Jin-pyo, becoming mentor to Goo Jun-pyo's son Lee Yun-seong XDXDXDXD~!!! I'm crazy

"cold with a sharp tongue"
Oh Gee, where have I seen that before?...right....almost every Kim Eun Sook leading man ever
aside form that I'm loving the descriptions for the quartet...I'm still finding it hard to believe that Jang Dong Gun will actually be in a drama...I'm glad Kim Ha Neul is doing comedy again and I'm curious to see what her chemistry with him will be like

I'm loving this already! This has to be one of K-drama's finest F4 (or F44 as javabeans cleverly pointed out) EVER. Oh my goodness, excuse me while I fangirl in the corner.

I can't wait to watch this. Hope "F44's" chemistry as a team is kicking. All four of them are known to be good actors in the first place...

Hmm..

Woohoo! This had better be good-- it's such a momentous event. You're right, in the 2nd pic, it totally does look like they're going for an upskirt view. ;D

"F44"?! LOL! I was gonna suggest either A4, or if the title is really ironic, N4 (A=Ahjusshi, N=Napun Nom). F44 is way funnier, but somehow I think they'd rather be called the N4 than the F44. In any case, another promising drama on the horizon!

THAT sounds really great.
I so want to watch this, hopefully it will be subbed as quickly as possible.
It reminds me of I Need Romance, men ver.?
I feel the dynamic of the drama is going to be pretty interesting. A group of 40 something ajusshi, talking about their love lives? I'm glad we'll have the point of view of men for once. I want a class yet funny atmosphere and looks like it's gonna be that. I hope the direction will be good as well.
Can't wait, woot!

Wow, so much male starpower in one drama. I hope the bromance is a big focus of the show, because that's why I'll be watching it.

I might be in the minority, but I love KES dramas, at least the more recent ones. They're not always deep, but they sure are fun.

Thanks for the heads up GF.

How about F40? The idea comes from Formula 1 but is changed up to suit. And to make it more exciting it's a double race as the fans are also racing for position for their favorites.

Whatever the race is called I'm sure it's going to be one to watch!

Start your engines!

It's like...the Korean "Men of a Certain Age" but better because all of these guys are awesome, were/are hot, and are really great actors.

I absolutely cannot wait for this. Just saw episode 1 of "Guardian Angel" the other day so I'm already really anticipating seeing Kim Min Jong again. All of these big names (Jang Dong Gun, Kim Suro, Lee Jong Hyuk) is like super duper fudge filling with chocolate icing AND gold flakes on the cake.

Delicious :)

JDG is my biggest ever celeb-crush...definitely can't wait to watch his drama again. i just hope he'll comb his hair back just like what a gentleman should look like, cuz he looks super duper handsome with his hair up. I think all Korean men/boys should stop doing that Bieber hair. It's never attractive to begin with.

Anyway, can't wait for this drama, love JDG to death!
