Lee Soo-kyung returns to cable with new drama

Whenever I hear Lee Soo-kyung’s name, I want to shout at her, Pick better dramas! So hopefully this next project will do the trick (she’s so much better than so many of her projects, like I Summon You Gold, Color of Woman, You’re Here You’re Here You’re Really Here, My Country Calls, and sadly more)—it’s a tvN drama that’s titled Let’s Eat.

Idol singer Yoon Doo-joon (IRIS 2, All My Love) in in final negotiations to play her co-star, a character who would be a hardcore foodie. There isn’t a whole lot given about the setup other than that she’s a divorcee, but considering the producers behind the show I’m going to assume that it won’t be a standard rom-com drama. The series will reteam the PD-writer pair behind tvN’s long-running mockumentary series Rude Miss Young-ae and will use the same mix of documentary and comedy in this new show. So while this new drama will be fully scripted, we’ll probably see them playing with the structure a bit in the same way that Young-ae did.

It sounds like the type of show that will be dependent more on execution than strictly premise, since all we know is that Lee Soo-kyung’s character will be a divorcee and that the plot will center around the search for hot restaurants. Since that could be easily achieved in a true docu/reality show, I’m hoping for more interesting tidbits in the drama proper. Since that’s not much to go on in the way of story, I’m thinking the format and style will really be the conceit, particularly if Let’s Eat follows in Rude Miss Young-ae’s footsteps and riffs on the mockumentary formate.

Let’s Eat (a working title) will air on Thursday nights beginning in November, taking up the timeslot following Rude Miss Young-ae’s twelfth season.

She was also cute in Mother has grown horns. I haven't liked her in her other/later projects.

She wasn't in 'Mother has grown horns'... maybe you're talking about 'Golden era of the daughter in law', where she was the leading actress.

I thoroughly enjoyed Country Calls. Sadly it was probably her only first lead role.

Can't say I'll be following this drama. How many episodes have these kind of dramas?

I feel like the entire drama 'Soulmate' is my soulmate. sigh...

But yeah, I'm probably gonna love her forever no matter what unless she beats someone up because of that. I still ship her and Shin Dong-wuk, I like to think that their real lives are just continuations of the drama and that they're secretly married.

I love her -but sadly the drama always turned out bad. My favourite is actually Love you A thousand times, which was really good....but turned out a little makjang. Anyway, I would love to see them get together!

There are other fine actors caught up in bad drama hell! I started subscribing to kbsworld on youtube. It has several soap operas that you've never heard of with terrible scripts, corny sound effects, and good actors in need of employment.

I love Yoon Doo-joon. I saw him IRIS 2 and was sold. He made me Jang Hyuk fan. Solid stuff from him so I'm looking forward to this if he's in it.

Slightly off-topic... but is it just me or does Doo-joon look like a young So Ji-sub?

Yoon Doo-joon and Park Gwang-hyun (Park Shi-hoo's assistant in Cheongdamdong Alice) should play So Ji-sub's brothers someday.

"Whenever I hear Lee Soo-kyung’s name, I want to shout at her, Pick better dramas!"

This touches on something I've been wondering about. Maybe someone can field these questions.

How does an actor pick a 'good' project?

Do they pick it based on the script? How reliable is that when scripts are often changed mid-producton?

Do they pick it based on writers? How reliable is that when the owners/broadcasters of the show have so much influence in shaping the story based on rating feedback?

Do they have to wait until they see the other creative talent attached to the project? Since an artist's vision creates the lens that the characters and story must pass through.

Who chooses: actor, agent, both? Are there people in the industry that are particularly skilled in this? Or is it a big roll of the dice?

All of the above? None?

She has such a lovely screen presence, she looks like she should already have a few prime time hits under her belt but nooooo. This woman needs to pick better dramas.

If Doojoon in then that's great. And if the drama gets sub then it's double great.

Mockumentary?? Not sure I'm following. Is it a documentary where the point is to mock their subject of the day?

I hope we can find it somewhere with English subs...
It is discouraging that hardly anyone picks cable drama, even really good ones...

So far i love the first two episodes and soo kyung character is endearing. I wish it's more than one episode every week. Can't wait for the next episode getting more exciting.
