Posters for Pretty Man’s pretty cast

Bah, I’m not ready for new dramas to start yet, but here they come anyway. It’s like time has a mind of its own, all inconsiderate-like. KBS’s brand new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man is getting ready to premiere this week, and has released posters and more stills. The 16-episode romantic comedy stars Jang Geun-seok (Love Rain) as the prettiest man who ever was, and IU (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin) as the Plain Jane who loves him from afar.

Jang Geun-seok plays a man who discovered as early as kindergarten that he was prettier than most and could get special treatment because of it. During his school years he never once had to bring a lunch to school, and now only has to glance at designer things in stores before women throw presents his way. Uh… we’re supposed to like him, right?

Han Chae-young (Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek) is the rich, glamorous, successful woman he wants, but for reasons unknown, she makes a game of “training” him and tells him to conquer ten of the most eligible bachelorettes in the city first. I’m trying to wrap my head around the thinking behind that, but in any case she seems like she wants to possess him like a toy. Still don’t know how the other women figure into it, but I think I’ll just let the drama tell me, in case I’m straining to see a logic that doesn’t exist in the first place.

IU plays the average girl who has had a one-sided crush on Pretty Man since junior high, and Lee Jang-woo (Oh Ja-ryung Is Coming) is the nice guy who ends up falling for her. On paper, I’m all for the nice guy over the one who thinks it’s a good thing to be professionally pretty to get things for free, but I’m sure the point of the drama will be how the bad boy really has a heart of gold on the inside and falls for the sweet average girl, right? Right?

Pretty Man premieres Wednesday on KBS. And in case you haven’t seen it, the second teaser is below.

This sounds like a drama where you have to suspend all logic at the door, starting with IU = Plain Jane?

The premise sounds so insane that it might actually work if this is mostly comedy, the "rom" part not so sure of.

I can neither buy JGS as the prettiest man in the world (he may be good-looking, but not insanely beautiful like I'd expect for this role), nor IU as Plain Jane.

Are they all super-rich? All those clothes just scream money (they may be terrible but they are definitely not Plane-Jane clothing).

Agreed. JGS is handsome and cute, but there are prettier men out there. E.g. Kiseop of U-kiss, my ultimate bias, Jaehyo, or, wait for it, Lee Jong Suk.

Actually, there's also the guy who played Gwang Soo in Secret. See, loads of prettier men.

Anyway, as long as the second female lead isn't a screaming bitch, a trope that I find super-sexist, I'm looking forward to this comedy.

IU was considered ugly and was rejected by a ton of people for that reason until she got in through LOEN (?) I believe. But yes, I never thought of her as average. It sounds like an infuriating drama in that the good guy doesn't ... win. And instead the guy who HAD IT ALL, will once again HAVE IT ALL.

jang geun suk and iu do not seem to have any romantic chemistry in these photos... anyone else thinks this way? but it seems iu have chemistry with the second lead guy though...

maybe watching the drama would provide a different perspective.

I dont know if I want to watch this or not... I mean I know they have to leave somethings unknown to catch people's attention, but that whole 10 bachelorettes deal has me thrown for a proverbial loop. I want to further understand the reasoning behind this premise before making a decision about seeing this show or not. The jury still hasn't come to a decision about this one.

People have been explaining it in previous posts since it's based on a webtoon and some have read it. You can go back and find them I'm sure (I don't remember well what they said). Do a search of the page for "webtoon" or "based" maybe so you don't have to sift through all the comments.

I nearly always give new dramas the benefit for the first two episodes, especially now since there simply is not much else that grabs me since Secrets is over and Heirs has become a stating contest, getting annoyed with FMR in Mi Rae, etc.

I think that's the point, to differentiate him from the pretty first lead which is jang geun suk, he's to pretty to be called just "nice", that's why the production team try to make him ugly. I miss him and eunjung, they're adorable and real on wgm T.T

I love Lee Jang-woo's hair! Not the clothes, for sure, but he looks irresistibly cute in the posters.

Now JGS is a sailed ship for me, the cuteness shtick that is IU is stale, leaving me only interested in the second leads. I kind of want to see Lee Jang-woo romancing Han Chae-young.

Wishful thinking.

Tunic over jeans is a trend right now--to answer that question.

I quite like it, though it doesn't work for everyone and it depends on how it is styled. I think he wears it quite well. I do agree he could have a better hairstyle, but overall still an attractive guy, lol.

I can't take my eyes off the fashion fails for me to actually appreciate the posters. Although if I only look at the faces, I like IU's look, even if she seems childlike in front of JGS.

I'm sure this will get a huge boost because its replacing Secret - which is the highest rated in the time slot. But since this is everything Secret is not, I wonder if it would help them at all... I'll check out the first episode; here's to hoping I see JGS's character rather than JGS himself. Sometimes I think both are too similar to one another for me to distinguish.

Not so sure it will get a boost from Secrets - it is playing directly against Heirs, so many might move over to that, or even to MTT.

That was my reaction when I watched this drama with Eugene where her father kept remarking that she was SO UGLY and that she should be grateful to any man who wanted to marry her because nobody would want to be with such an ogre and it just completely took me out of the show because there's no way that anyone would seriously think Eugene is unattractive.

Any girl placed beside the goddess that is Han Chaeyoung is automatically reduced to (relatively) plain to my eyes, so I have no problems believing it.

Besides, "plain" description aside, casting someone who's actually plain would stretch the suspension of disbelief (that she'd win the guy) to the breaking point for me. Much as I like JGS, he's far from being the pretties man on earth, and all my willpower is being spent on forcing myself to buy that premise.

His fans started calling him their prince because he became one of the most popular actors in all of Asia. Then he said in an interview that he wants to do right by his fans to earn the title "prince of Asia" and then that's what everyone started to call him.

If you took the chance to read or watch most of his interviews he is actually very humble and always says that he is still learning and trying to perfect his acting skills. When it comes to some of the "zany" or "weird" things he says it is actually all in jest. Kind of like Kim heechul from super junior. People with a sense of humor understand the difference. Also his friend Jaejoong from jyj said that sometimes he can rub people the wrong way because he is brutally honest, blunt, and says things to the point and directly. He doesn't try to sidestep or sugar coat , he tells you how it is. Many celebrities in SK don't do that for some reason. That is also why he has many fans all over the world because he is not afraid to show people who he really is. If that is taken as being strange, weird, or overrated that is your opinion. But his fans love it.

He gets by in school on his looks. Soooooo, he's the popular kid from an 80's flick?

I totally want Lee Jang-woo's black and gray outfit in his still. Except I'd lose the collar shirt thing but love the tunic.

Seriously, the dramas this year have been so meh, no matter how silly the plot sounds, it's a rom com, and I will check out the first few epi's. It can't be any worse than a plot about a novice nun that trades her religious calling for idol worship, right? ;)

On paper, this just looks like n number of cliched dramas with pretty people, love triangles, the nice guy that my heart breaks for, and the "bad boy" with "heart", and the plucky sad heroine who nothing ever goes right for...

...Usually, as shallow as I am, I'd eat this sort of thing up but tVN's great plotlines, and the rising quality of dramas (daily dramas and trendies) have ruined me. Keeping my ear out to see the reaction to this drama nevertheless.

Question: anyone else feel like there's a lot of dramas out this season?

IU looks adorable. Lee Jang Woo and JGS both have terrible hair that makes them look too feminine and idg Lee Jang Woo's styling here AT ALL. Is he supposed to be a dandy too? When they first cast her, I didn't think IU's character would be so major but it seems like she's got a pretty big role. This show honestly makes no sense to me but all the latest romcoms have failed to hook me so here's hoping this one ends up being unexpectedly good.

It's like the story of Dangerous Liaisons. A guy who uses his looks to gain fame, wealth, and power. It is similar in that the woman wants him to accomplish something first. She probably has an ulterior motive. And he probably learns about true love through IU's character. If they play this story right, I think it would be really awesome. It's nice to see JGS take on a role that is essentially a villain at first. He has had some dramas that were meh, but like java beans said "when he is on he is on".

I think the main problem for this drama is the title. sigh. PRETTY MAN, which will arise prejudice. Dangerous liaisons is a cool title. But it's an adaptation of a manga, so it has to follow its title.

I prefer the English title of this drama: BEL AMI. At least it will draw the attention of drama fans.

The 10 bachelorettes thing seems randomly thrown in and I HIGHLY doubt they would have JGS character go all Valmont like and seduce IU. Been watching kdramas for only a lil' while but I haven't seen any lead characters that amoral esp not in a romcom although now I wish they would just take that route.

It's funny how people comeup running sayin "IU is soo pretty how can they call her average " and stuff like that.... it's try hard to prove that she is not average but some super natural beauty. To begin with she is average looking for me her looks are below avg. It doesn't makes sense wen people call HCY (here) for instance as Plain. Some may find her really pretty n some don't but with the same slogan wen ever a article states her as plain are laughable.So it goes well with IU. JGS character seems to have a negative shade am looking fwd to his acting.

Seriously people how many of you are going to watch it on TV and contribute to ratings? I am curious to know because people are solo concerned about the plot as if they are sacrificing their everything to this drama. Pcccchhhh it's tiresome people judging it on basic outline , watch it or don't as simple as that why to make heavy statements , it's not like u are paying them.

Dramabeans Deconstructing Korean Dramas

It is like reverse engineering. Readers here analyze it to see how it works. Even the title of a show can sometimes make or break it to an extent.

It is also like watching cooking shows. No one is likely to ever make every recipe they take the time to watch being used, but they are fascinated by the choices of ingredients chosen, who the chef is and what he/she is know best for fixing, and how the the whole thing looks, tastes, and comes out in the end.

Anyway, that is why I have been reading Dramabeans for years now. It isn't just a cheer leading fan site and is far more interesting to me than a lot of sites that are more like that.

Great analogy with the cooking shows. I think some people come here with the idea that this is some kind of fan site, but for me it is the only place to have a really serious discussion about what is good, bad, or ugly about a drama or Asian dramas in general.

On most other sites it is almost impossible to have a real discussion about a particular drama: on the Drama Fever site you have to sift through hundreds of gushing fan 3 worders-, on Soompi you have to sift through hundreds of multi-repeated images and clips. Viki comments are probably the only real alternative to DB, and it is not nearly active in the comments, with a few exceptions like Secrets or other super popular shows.

To all people who think JGS is overrated , well it's your personal opinion so be it. He is definitely not overrated he has Talent, He is good at what he does and tries to improvise and sharpen his acting and singing skills. He deserves all the Rating he's been given considering his Career as a actor since he was 6-7 years old. To be frank he was recognized much later than many of the actors of his gen who are not even great actors in comparison. Poor thing he was not well known when he was more versatile with his work before YAB. And now people say he is overrated jus because he is now listed as a A list Actor. Strange.

sorry about my comment about overrating... I mean strictly on his look as Pretty Man. I think LJW is more good looking (to me) despite his clothes (looks like a woman).

I think the title "pretty man" means two things one being that he is beautiful physically but on the inside he isn't because of what he uses it to play with people. And also that was the name if the manga and they have come up with a " flower boy " or. " pretty boy " series with flower boy ramyun shop, flower boy next door , and shut up flower boy band. It's by the same writer who did those. The director us supposed to be amazing as well so I'll keep an open mind.

You know, I completely agree with you. I think he's a great actor but get confused bc they always seem to be casting him in these roles where he is supposed to be the hottest guy on earth. I don't think he's bad - he's okay, but the clothes and the hair make him unappealing to me so I'm left to wonder why they insist on casting average looking male actors as the hottest guys on earth and beautiful actresses as ugly ducklings.

you mentioned JGS as A-lister. As far as I know SK people/ viewers dont like him for some reason that makes many dramas he's in have bad ratings. A lister should be nation darling right? I wonder if it is true. If it is yes then JGS deserves it.

@rham,
I think he is recognized as an A lister from the huge profit he generated from his dramas. For example MSOAN and Love Rain. Though the ratings in SK are not high, those dramas are amazingly successful overseas. JKS is loved by all over Asia, except SK. Love Rain is even successful beyond Asia. Business is business. So as long as his dramas generated huge profit, from wherever it is, then he's an A lister. Btw, he is the highest paid actor from his generation. This is a fact, as I've ever read it from HK newspaper.

0

Required fields are marked *

In terms of his income for a drama, he is considered A-lister because they are willing to give him money as his drama can be sold at a higher price to different countries especially Japan

And there are hardly any actors who can affect the ratings. Many A lister who have higher rating is not mainly because of them, but because they have more scripts thrown at them and they can select a good script.

I believe a A list actor can only attract people to watch the first 2-3 eps, if the drama is bad, the ratings will still tanked. Kwon Sang-woo was very popular after Stairway to Heaven, but his Sad Love Story was considered to have average rating given the huge budget at that time. Hyun Bin was also big after My Lovely Sam Soon, but Snow Queen has a low rating of less than 10% most of the time.

I can only recall Bae Yong Joon who has very good ratings for almost all his dramas. Really impressive. BYJ is very good at selecting scripts. kim soo hyun is lucky that his boss has chosen good dramas and movies for him. Even the new drama Ji Sung "Secret", BYJ company was the one behind it.

JKS never had good ratings if he is the male lead but that does not stopped anyone from giving scripts to him. They know that he can nail the role and is confident that he has a overseas market. Besides, I think his drama does not do well has nothing to do with him but the script is not well received by the Korea public.

It's kinda late but thanks for the info.
Well JGS surely knows what he's headed though people might think differently. Wish him all the best....

Actually I got one more: How the actors could choose which script/drama, movie excluded, is good for them as they always got only skeleton when they got an offer. Kdramas production always battle with last minute script if I'm not mistaken so that actors know the story development during filming production. A drama title might have good premise at the start but without good writing department then it would be a flop. Any thought from you is appreciated.

This is based on what i know, i may not be 100% correct.

Yes, most of them have to base on the skeleton. But it is not just a summary. The lines and plots are basically there, just that they make changes to it due to public response and other factors. And when they do, they will have to rewrite certain scenes and make some changes to the plot. For e.g Hotelier because Bae Yong Joon was more popular as the drama runs, he was paired with the leading lady in the end despite him being the 2nd lead. Same for lee byung hun, rumours that in Beautiful Days, Choi Ji Woo was supposed to be with Ryu Shi-won (initial male lead), but more people prefer LBH's character, so she ended with LBH.

But you can still make your judgement from the script. And some just based on the popular genres or the writers. Some writers always has high ratings and people are confident in them. e.g Kim Eun-sook ( A Gentleman's Dignity, Secret Garden, Lovers in Paris). Almost all her dramas has high ratings. Heirs was probably one of the rare one that has not done as well. But there are still 8 eps to go, so it will probably do better. And even if the ratings aren't higher than expected, it is still considered good given that dramas nowadays seldom hit above 20%. Then you look at the director and of course the budget.

However, despite that you still cannot be 100% sure. Some dramas even change writers in the middle of the drama. This is why even A listers when they choose a wrong drama, it will still not do well. There are just too many factors affecting a drama.

So all in all, it is always a gamble to select a project. So instead of focusing on ratings( which can be quite unpredictable), it is better to focus on the roles and the script. Just select a role and script that you like and be happy while working.

@Prakruthi
I don't know about him as an "A list" actor but to tell u the truth, before YAB yes I like him, not a really crazy fan but I enjoyed his acting and okay with his image but sadly after YAB, his image turns to a bit weird + choosing so many poor dramas/scripts + uninterested roles, makes me dun really excited about his new PJ anymore..

still waiting for a good role at least from JGS..
good luck JGS & PM...

I hope it turns out to be good though, just for IU's sake, ha, after that week-end horror You're the Best, Whatever You're Name Is.

Sorry...but, uh...Jang Geun Suk is neither pretty or handsome. I never saw why ppl are so crazy about him. Acting...good. Looks...I don't think so. I probably won't bother with this drama...the plot just does not sound interesting enough. :/

You already mentioned that you don't find JGS goodlooking then how would you understand why many people are crazy for both his looks and acting ?? He has the craze because viewers find him goodlooking simple logic lol

I see that they have transferred JGS's horrible hairstyle over to LJW. Sigh.

I am looking forward to this drama. I don't understand the complaint about hair. Long hair = Ugly ???? I think Lee Jang-woo looks good with long hair.

IU and JGS look good. I heard this plot has a complex story line. Hopefully it is a good adaptation and good direction.

LOL. Agreed with you. Seems like whoever guy with long hair will be complained as horribly styled.

JKS looked beautiful with long hair, but he looks totally HOT with his current short hair. So he's made the right sacrifice (maybe to him personally, as he likes his long hair so much) by cutting it.

Damn! I've been waiting for him to cut his hair for years

Not because he couldn't afford for a Plastic surgery like many Korean actors/Idols does , it's because he prefers being natural and this jus proves that he is a very normal human with few imperfections :)

No, his nose definitely looks different now as compared to NonStop 4 and Hwang Jin-i. Now he does not look very natural to me. This is only my observation.

Am I the only one who think that Lee Jang-woo looks much better than Jang Geun-seok and Han Chae-young is the worst actress in kdramaland (yet, very pretty)?

LJW is much more attractive and manly than JGS: That's why they give ahjumma clothes to the second lead, to compensate...
I like LJW a lot but his latest drama was not good & I'm not interested in that one either. *sigh*.
PS: The posters are pretty.

IU is cute.

People now start to compare IU and Yoona, which Idol actress will get the highest and best rating for their Mon-Tue & Wed-Thurs dramas.

On paper, Yoona drama is better with LBS and YSY in it but acting wise, I prefer IU eventhough she's new compared to Yoona.

Speaking of idol actress, anyone watch Dasom of SISTAR in KBS daily drama, Love Rides the Melody? Yeah, it's a daily drama with a makjang twist but I love Dasom acting. She's fun to watch, good acting.

I'm sure at the KBS drama awards, IU and Dasom will be competing in the same category of New Actress award.

I will watch this drama for IU. IU fighting!

First of all Yoona and IU dramas are not in the same time slot so they will not be competing against each other.

Second, PMAI has to pick up from very low point seeing how MHIYD has like 5,4% rating and is going up against Empress Ki that has already established rating around 16%. So if PMAI manages to get rating even above 105 it`s gonna be huge success.

On the other hand ,Bel Ami is left with the top slot after Secret Love ended with 18,9% rating. So they have big shoes to fill and Heirs are doing better and better in ratings.

Both dramas have very difficult job to do, so i wouldn`t expect huge rating from either. How knows, maybe we get a surprise.

Jang Geun Suk is the only reason why I'd be watching this. Atleast he is not hopeless in the acting department while rest of the all 3 leads are .
Oh well he already cut his hair shorter than I expected , It's definitely refreshing .

@ naomijess
thank you for the answer. Well now I know where it came from. I do wish the best for him and yes he deserves to be known and loved for his works n as a person particularly in SK. He only needs recognition from his country as it is what he's looking for like forever.

Omo! Why are some commentators here very sensitive about tagline "Prettiest Man in the world" the official character description of Dokgo Mate by KBS doesn't stare the same as in the Manga.
And please learn to differentiate between Dokgo mate and JGS. Why is JGS getting all the mockery wen its his character which is actually described as Prettiest man in the world.
Any beautiful actors/actresses around the world cannot be known as Beautiful universally there will be people who'd differ with opinions. Constantly throwing harsh words on JGS looks will neither stop him from being casted into dramas neither this drama will stop halfway prior It's release searching for a Real Prettiest man in the world. Check for yourselves each one of u may have different biases whom you'd probably consider prettiest of all but that doesn't make him/her for real.

Chill out people .

Yes! probably "U" should :P
Don't make yourself look like a ignorant brain dead netizen who simply love to join the clan of Bashing/Mocking a Actor , unable to differentiate between a Character to a Actor , A story to a Real Life.

Neither JGS is Described as Prettiest man in the world nor IU is Described as Plain Jane , It's Their Characters for heaven's sake. A actor is some who should be capable of playing any character given to them . In her next project IU can play a Prettiest girl in the world if she is asked to and JGS can play a Ugly man , most of his earlier projects where he acted in movies like Itewon homicide as a villian with ugly hair , make up and styling. If he could play such a character soo creepy , then he can play this too.

Not a Great fan of JGS but the guy is impressive with his Acting. Watched most of his Dramas/Movies so I'd be checking this out too.
HCY is Pretty but her acting is meh.
LJW I've watched only one drama with him and he is passable.
IU ummm don't really like her.

I hope this drama surprises me with that storyline as on paper. I wish JGS gets back to his YAB days of glory. His sacrifice of hair hopefully turn things lucky for him hehehe.

lol!! ah..these people commenting negatively about this drama probably already commented the same things on the past "Pretty Man" articles..and yet, they are here again..reading things related to this drama.

Let it go people. lol. If you don't like JKS, then don't even mind to check posts related to him. Just a waste of your time..unless..your following him otherwise. kkk.

Pretty Man vs. Heirs vs. Medical Top Team? Not much to look forward on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I am already watching Heirs (is like driving by a car crash, you cant stop yourself from looking), so that's is enough self-torture at the moment. And I'm not up for another Medical drama right now.

My thoughts also, looks like Wed/Thur will be a "challenge" to put it politely.

But there is always the possibility of a surprise. Some dramas end up being almost the total opposite of what you would think from the press releases.

Quite often the trailers and synopsis for upcoming dramas are WAY off the mark - that is one reason why the first airing of Secrets got less than 5% - it simply did not sound very good at all in the pre-publicity write-ups. And others that sounded pretty good on paper just fell apart.

I don't know why but this kinda reminds me of the movie 'Chasing Papi'. Perhaps it's the 'he discovered how being pretty gets him everything since Kindergaten' part.

on a bright note, he fixed his horrible hippie/nature boy hair.

I think here he looks more like his "you're beautiful" character. I'm not sure thats a good thing or...
