The beautiful promote Wonderful Season

The stars of upcoming weekend drama Wonderful Season united at a press conference held on February 18. If the gorgeousness of the cast alone doesn’t draw you in (main characters Kim Hee-sun and Lee Seo-jin play first loves who meet again after 15 years apart; Taecyeon takes on the role of mercurial younger brother to Seo-jin’s character), the drama is being advertised as a heartwarming story about the importance of family – an uplifting story might be just what we need to get us through the rest of this frigid winter (that is, presuming it doesn’t turn into a melo, as certain dramas are wont to do).

Lee Seo-jin (Kye Baek) is a successful prosecutor who returns home for the first time in 15 years, and Kim Hee-sun (Faith) is his former love who has weathered several hardships (like the bankruptcy of her father’s company, among other things) in their small town in his absence.

Kim Hee-sun said, “It’s been a long time since I’ve had to put in such a tough performance; it makes me nervous. It also makes me anxious that I have to speak with a [Kyungsangdo] accent.”

No matter how hard I try, I can’t get used to Kim Hee-sun speaking a dialect. She is known more for her goddess appearance than her acting ability, and I’m pretty sure she’ll still be ridiculously beautiful no matter how much they try to country-bumpkin-ify her, but will she be able to overcome that and pull off the role?

Lee Seo-jin told reporters he was drawn more to the script than he was to the role of city boy returning home. “It’s not easy to find warmhearted scripts these days, but I got a really good feeling about [Wonderful Season].” He also hinted, “You’ll understand why my character is the way he is after seeing the show.”

Basically, it’s a feel-good story but we will need some time to warm to his character. Don’t worry Seo-jinnie, your popularity is at an all-time high (so hapless and endearing in Grandpas Over Flowers!); it would take a lot to turn the goodwill of your fans, no matter how cold your city boy is.

Taecyeon (Who Are You, Dream High) was asked about acting with Kim Hee-sun, to which he joked, “She’s great; I can’t really say anything bad at this press conference.” Jokes aside, he said, “It’s easy to get along with Hee-sun noona.”

He also talked about his role as younger brother to Lee Seo-jin’s character, “My character’s temperament is different based on the situation and who he interacts with. His versatility is appealing.” Taecyeon was born in Busan, so we will get to see some of his dialect skills on display.

Wonderful Season is brought to us by writer Lee Kyung-hee and director Kim Jin-won, who last worked together on 2012’s Nice Guy. The show premieres February 22 on KBS.

I can't understand his appeal: he can't act, he can't sing or dance, there are tons of young actors better looking - so why do they continually prop him up? I know JYP can pull a lot of strings, but please... can't he get another pet project?

He actually doesn't rank very highly as a rapper in the K pop scene. There're even a number of female rappers who're better than him at rapping. It's only recently that he has improved slightly.

As a second lead he generates a lot of sympathy (e.g. Cinderella's sister). I don't think he is LEAD material, but he is decent enough to hold a second lead--the kind where we feel a bit of heart ache that he doesn't get the girl.

By what criteria, his looks? Let's not insult all idol actors, most of whom are far better at acting than him and don't get nearly as many parts.

aw, well, just give him a break. I'm no taecyeon fan but i'm sure he needs a way to make a living and comments like these probably don't help a whole lot.

...he's an idol. He's already got a way to make a living (and by all accounts, sucks at that too).

I don't see why JYP has to inflict his mug on us in acting which is, let's not forget, a job, which he gets paid to do and appear to have any talent for.

That last part was meant to be, "and appears NOT to have any talent for. "

TaecYeon might have good PR skills or some very good connections... He can't even Rap well. Most people can Rap like him... I agree he can't act well enough to be a lead/ main actor. He is no looker, his ears are odd and so are his teeth (I am not discriminating him for it, just trying to make some sense)...what I mean to say is he is not even like Song Seung Hoon with who some people are comparing him with. SSH is handome in all angles, like hik or not. He has a good body and he can dance/ acrobat though...

I don't dislike him, in fact I like 2PM but I don't get why is he being given meaty roles where there are tons of talented guys waiting out there to be launched or get better work.

Why does he bother you all so much?

Does he come across to you as too confident, manly, unequivocal, direct, outgoing, etc., i.e., very un-Korean? Those are precisely the qualities that make him shine in my eyes, because he is unique. If we can have flower boys (with a ton of lip gloss) and doenjangnams, surely, we can make room for someone like Taecyeon as well.

LOL, sounds like you are describing Kim Woo Bin, to me - someone who has all of those qualities and - oh by the way - can also back up that "confidence" with some actual talent as an actor.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

He doesn't come across to me as anything but wooden and blank-eyed.

Korean entertainment, with its surfeit of young talent, does not need to make any room for anyone as devoid of it as Taecyeon. Most of those 'flower boys with lip gloss' you so deride can actually emote, unlike him.

hehe, but Korean entertainment loves to reach out to other countries. Taecyeon is a lot better than many others. As long as he is in the cast, it looks more interesting. He can't act crying but he is good in action, check out High Dream.

I usually dont watch weekend drama. But Im really curious about taecyeon's character, since he'll be playing a single father (got a kid at 19? i believe). I think i read somewhere that his son believes taecyeon character is his older brother rather than his dad.

Makes me wanna check this drama out because teenage single dads are pretty uncommon in kdramas

I love Ryu Seung-soo!!! He is just awesome in everything he's ever appeared in. Can't believe I've been watching him in dramas since he played that student palm reader in "Winter Sonata." *time flies*

Something has to tone down Teh Cray-Cray that was "Wang's Family." Hopefully this will do it. Stay tuned!

If it was another writer, I would've gave this drama a chance plus it's long and I don't drop dramas so if I dislike it then I have to keep torturing myself to finish it. Although I am dying to see Seo Jin ahjussi (and Kim Hee Sun) in something new, I am gonna have to pass this.

I so excited to watch this drama mainly due to Taecyeon and also it is a weekend drama.

Taec character description sort of his character from Dream High but adult version. Yeah, he got twins but his mom register it under her name so that Taec can have better future or something. Well, after seven years, he sometimes confused whether the kids are his children or siblings.

Can't wait to know LSJ character when he got back to his hometown. Imagine to his horror to know that he got another 2 younger siblings... kkkk

Lee Seo-jin! ..... I swear, I haven't seen him since "Lovers." ...... He was working this mysterious vibe in that drama. I'm wondering if he's going to bring some of that to this drama, which he can do well, by the way.

I can't wait for this show to air! I have high hopes for this, the directing looks stellar and I love almost all of Lee Kyung Hee's dramas. It's unfortunate that Taecyeon has to be in it. Kim Hee Sun also felt a little unnatural to me, but I'm going to be optimistic about this. K, I'm mostly excited because Kim Jin Won is directing this.

Kim Hee-sun is forever beautiful. And Lee Seo-jin's dimples are just soo delicious.

Lol, watching Tayceon trying to act is hilarious. He truly is the Song Seung-hun 2.o. But both are such gorgeous beefcakes. No need to act; just take shower scenes.XD

Oh, I have always liked Taecyeon! Sure, he's not much of an actor (yet), but I loved seeing him in Family Outing and even enjoyed him in Dream High. And I love his ears- when he's embarrassed, even THEY get red. Cut the guy some slack- hopefully his acting chops will develop more rapidly with more acting exposure. I didn't think Lee Min-Ho, Kim Hyun-Joong or Yoochun were anything special to start with, but they have all gotten better with time. I'll continue to hope that Taecyeon will follow suit. Two things he has going for him (at least for ME): This dance, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMj-5_qeW6w and this: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Lpsq88HAmNQ/T_a6DoWiz7I/AAAAAAAATUM/gsv1qXYAvzk/s1600/o0790103411800726400.jpg Sorry, all - I can't help but like him and wish him the best.

Yep, I know right. Why need to hate him. At least when he act in the long weekend drama. The other actors fans also will get benefit. Taec fans sure will translate any updates anything about the drama and drama fans can know about their fave actors elsewhere.

Lee Kyung Hee. Why did I just find this out now??
I mean I decided to start this drama the moment I heard about it but now that I know that this is my favourite screenwriters new drama. OH GOD, This drama is at the top of my watching list. I'm a bit sad that it's 50 episodes.
Don't get me wrong I love family dramas but in most of them they seriously lose their way after 40 episodes :/ Hopefully with her powerful, beautiful writing skills will help make the 50 episodes seem like a breeze :3
