Go Joo-won to play Yoo Inna’s love interest
This drama sounds cuter by the day. We’ve got another lover boy joining the ranks of weekend family drama You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin, to which there’ll probably be no end, given the family of three daughters at the center of the story. Now that we’ve got youngest daughter IU squared away with Jo Jung-seok, it’s time to turn our attention to second daughter Yoo Inna, and her onscreen beau-to-be Go Joo-won (Kim Suro), in his first project post-army duty.
Yoo Inna plays second daughter Lee Yoo-shin, a marketing exec for an outdoor brand. (What IS it with k-drama and its obsession with outdoorsy-wear product placement? Hardly anyone ever goes camping, but everyone in a drama’s got like seventeen scenes of shopping for hiking gear.) Anyway, outside of her family life, she’s great at everything — art, sports, her job, even dating. But at home, she’s the middle child and constantly overshadowed by her unni (played by Sohn Tae-young) and the maknae (IU).
Go Joo-won plays the boy next door, literally the kid who grows up in the next house over, and is classmates with Yoo-shin. He’s a dermatologist and a particularly sweet oppa to IU’s character Soon-shin. In fact, growing up next door to the family, he’s always seen the second sister give the maknae a hard time, and has had a one-sided crush on the little sister for a really long time.
So while he’s sweet and nothing but nice to the little sister, because he’s friends and classmates with Yoo-shin, they have a totally different relationship — he’s constantly bickering with her and they drive each other crazy. Which of course means they’re doomed to fall madly in love someday. They sound like an adorable pair of characters, and I really love stories with old friends who bicker their way into romance. Here’s hoping for good things.
You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin premieres March 9 on KBS.
