Lee Jong-seok and Seo In-gook headline sports movie

Flower boy swimmers? Why is this not a drama? There’s a new sports movie about competitive swimming gearing up for production, and School 2013′s Lee Jong-seok and Answer Me 1997′s Seo In-gook have been cast to headline. *Waits for you to picture them shirtless.* I think I’m going to like this movie.

The latest project from the writer of the hit movie The Gift of Room 7 and the ping-pong movie Korea (or As One) is called No Breathing, and stars the pair of young actors as national athletes and up-and-coming star swimmers. Lee Jong-seok’s character is the golden boy, always chasing first place. He lives to win, while Seo In-gook’s character is… wait for it… a genius swimmer who purposely stays as far away from swimming as possible. Insert traumatic past here?

Even though you kind of don’t need a premise beyond flower boy swimmers, I do think Korea (which Lee Jong-seok also starred in) had a great story to tell. So I do expect an uplifting, momentous underdog sports triumphy movie to come out of this. The eye candy will just have to be the cherry on top.

It’s being helmed by a newbie director and starts shooting in May. Lee Jong-seok is busy shooting his sageuk movie The Face Reader, and Seo In-gook has another movie, Police Family, slated to shoot this year as well. No Breathing is planning for a release later this year.

I can't even write a "clean" comment about them in swimmers during a summer movie.

You don't even have to ASK for scenes. They will just be thrown at you. Man.

I'm quiet a good swimmer too, if they want to throw these 2noona killers to me, even if that means I will be drowning.

what was I saying? you're right, never a clean comment. LoL

You guys are hilarious. The thing is though... and this is me being completely and utterly shallow... neither Lee Jong-seok or Seo In-gook have great bodies hahah. *dodges fan bullets*

C'mon... Jong-seok looks like he weighs 50kg (~110lbs) on a soaking wet day with 10 layers on. In-gook... well, we all saw 1997 so we all know he loves his beer. :P

Lee Jong-seok is totally frail-looking and not someone I would buy as a swimmer (not exactly good-looking in the face as well).

Seo In-gook - I could kinda buy into as a swimmer.

It's weird but while I liked Go NamSoon, I'm not super-keen on Lee Jong-seok. I want to see how the latter does in the Face Reader and in this movie before I write him off immediately.

And a swimmer's movie? Yes, please!

My internal dialogue this morning:

"Yeah baby, bring it on!"

followed closely by...

"So young, I am a perv"

followed closely by...

"There is nothing wrong with appreciating a good looking man"

followed closely by...

"Way to justify being a perv"

followed closely by...

"But damn, they are soooo good looking"

followed closely by...

"I am old enough to be their mother!"

quickly does the math...

"Nope, but I still feel like a perv"

sighs.....

"where were the boys like this when I was younger?"

Well, if you're several years older than them, but not quite old enough to be their mother, the hot guys when you were young would have been Jang Dong gun, Lee Byung hun, Kim Min jong, actors like that. Although I do admit, other than Jang dong gun, none of the 90s actors really qualify as a "flower boy."

Have any of you by any chance seen Lee Jong Seok's sageuk mane of glory? I did,and I felt that it was pretty out of place and weird. Is just me who feels that way? Or maybe I'm simply not used to the whole idea of him doing sageuk HEH.
ANYHOW,HE'S REALLY SKINNY (If you'd watched him Running Man,you'd know) so the question is,will there be anything of worth for us to see? HEHEHEHEH *blinks innocently*

I am sure his management team and the movie's production team know the " power of the pretty" they're probably stuffing him with beef patties and making him do weight training.

"Genius" swimmer? *snerk*

But it stars both of my fave new male leads + swimming, so fighting!

Btw, saw Seo In Guk's MV with GHS and I found them both cute in it. Pretty sure some netizens are wishing for a drama starring both of them. I'm indifferent to GHS but I do hope she chooses a good drama project next time. One written well even if the acting's so-so. ;)

She was quite pretty in that. I almost didn't recognize her. That comes out wrong - I don't think she's ugly or unnattractive at all, but somehow her make up and clothing and hair in this one results in a look that is different from what I am used to seeing with her. That is all.

The chemistry was so cute in the mv. Saw the interview. SIG sang and teased her. It was so cute. Yes a drama with them as leads please. The last scenes in the mv, GHS was stunning. She should do a melodrama with a good script.

Also SIG seems so hot in the mv. Powerful vocals. He has a soulful voice. There's another song, Would We Have Been Happy, in his new album, composed by GHS. Really good too.

He's got a great voice, very nice to listen to, and he's not a bad actor at all. He covered quite a range of emotions in Answer Me 1997 and handled them all pretty well, especially for a newbie. And he definitely showed some heat in a few scenes. He can do intense, with that face, but he gets the vocab right, too.

While you wait for this film to be finished, you can get your quota of Flower Boy Swimmers with Waterboys (J-film & doramas). Tsumabuki Satoshi is in the original movie, and Eita and Moriyama Mirai are in the first dorama.

Lots of shirtlessness and bromance.

Very happy to see that Lee Jong-seok is doing movies (even if I wouldn't mind this as a drama either).

I never paid much attention to Miura, but, yeah, he was strikingly noticeable in that opening episode.

I'm not sure I'll like the drama though, some things irritate me greatly already. Will give it a few more episodes though.

Is Korea a good movie? The trailer and posters looked unbearably stupid and overdramatic (seriously, it's ping pong!), yet I keep hearing good reviews. I don't think I can bring myself to watch it since I can't buy into the North-South spirits-united type movies (especially when you have popular South Korean actresses playing North Koreans), but thought I'd ask just for curiosity.

i first read it as *Waits for you[meaning the Show] to picture[as in literally] them shirtless.* I was like, huh? but proceeds on imagining them shirtless anyway..
and then re-read it, then i finally get what GF meant: You = us, readers! hahaha

so misunderstood, but still got us imagining them shirtless! girlfriday has some serious writing powers..or we're just noona killers like that! buahaha.

oh wait, i don't really remember seeing them shirtless, so i'm not sure if they're hot or what, i think i got carried away. lol
