More rockers join Lee Hong-ki on the homestead

Park Min-woo (Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit, Can We Love) will star opposite FT Island’s Lee Hong-ki (Hundred Year Bride) in SBS’s fall weekend drama Modern Farmer. Park has worked steadily as a supporting actor (notably as Ba-wool in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop) and has been gaining fans with his current stint on variety show Roommate — hooray for him landing his first leading drama role!

Modern Farmer (a working title so bland that I hope they come up with something a little more creative) will be about a rock band and the antics of its members, who decide to step back from their rock star lives and to take up… farming? Huh? Far be it from me to nay-say, however, as wackier premises have worked out unexpectedly well. Park will play a bandmate to vocalist Lee Hong-ki, and the two will vie for the attentions of a still uncast leading lady.

Taking on the role of bassist is Lee Shi-un (Shark, Answer Me 1997), whose character is a realist who keeps up with his studies while balancing band activities, but is full of flaws — a heodang loner. The actor will start special bass lessons in order to prepare for his part, and he is a great addition to the cast, as he is so good in these types of quirky and awkward supportive roles.

Modern Farmer will be a 20-episode miniseries airing on Saturdays and Sundays. Writer Kim Ki-ho (Blue Tower) is taking on the script and PD Oh Jin-seok (Goddess of Marriage) will direct. The weekend drama will air after Feel-Good Day ends in October.

very happy for him, he is a sweetie in Roommates (although I am angry at the show right now for eating an fantastic creature like the octopus). He seems so timid in Roommates though. build up some confidence, young man! You can do it! maybe he should use his unique looks more (he kind of looks like a pony? in a cute way?) so .... confidently, confidently gallop forth!
I could watch him and Ga Yeon deliver kicks and comments all day though.

You find him timid? On Roommate I see him as one of the people who gets along with everyone and is constantly acting to smooth things out.

his body language always contradicts him. or maybe he is just tall.

I think the guy just has a Kang Joon inferiority complex. Other than that, I think he's alright and is probably the most thoughtful cast member of that show.

sure looked like a cruel way to kill it! i have also seen in other shows (Family Outing 1 and Roommates) where they break legs of crabs and split them open while the critters are still alive. Ditto with fish - scaling and cutting off fins while the fish is still alive!
In a U.S. cooking show, an asian-american chef stated that the more humane way to kill crabs is to put them in the deep freezer where they die a painless death. not sure if that's true but its better than slow painful death. similarly, i rather prefer to stun the fish with a whack to the head before chopping it off like Park Ye Jin did in FO1 :)

I remember that moment when Park Ye Jin whacked the fish and caused its eyes to pop out... Sweet savage Yejin indeed..

I fast forwarded the octopus scenes and pause the streaming to google "does octopus feel pain". I really love Roommate, but i wish they won't keep eating live seafood... (and the scientists haven't figured out yet whether cephalopods & crustacean feel pain or not).

read BBC. they do. they can even predict what will cause pain and move away. they are so smart. some say in the animal kingdom, crows, octopussy and ants are the three brainies.
I know different cultures and stuff but it seems cruel anyway. you shouldn´t eat EVERYTHING. not if you have other foods available.
it is not a question of does it hurt or not. if you find something amazing, you should study it instead of eating
sorry for bringing too much octopussy talk in, it is sort of irrelevant, but then again, looking at how carelessly this guy and Se Hos´parents cut it, I am a bit disgusted.

ah thinking how all my fave actors can be eating living creatures like that is awful

i think its scripted too much roommate the producers made him into a jealous petty mean person... which is completely the opposite of when the show first started he was nice to everyone and used to help kangjun with the respect stuff and he gave him gifts and all that, and sora even said he was the nicest to her when she first came ot the house, and Shin omma said he is a good listener but the episode with 5urprise coming they made him seem like he had an inferiority complex which he doesn't really have i mean come on they really can't be compared kangjun is great and all but minwoo has such a dynamic charm. and honestly the park bom thing why would she pick him to play the fake boyfriend it was all planned she is not that smart he planned everything.
now in the new teaser they are making fight with gayeon who is like the closest person to him she is his buddy. beginning to really hate the producers. i know ppl are calling it reality tv but its korea they script everything. they need drama because their ratings suck........
also i needed mean to sound so heated about it. but i needed to reply to one of the million comments about him and dramabean has sane ppl.

Park Min-woo was my favourite thing about Flower Boy Ramyun Shop which I really hated otherwise. I'm so glad he and Hong-ki are getting a drama together, they would be so cute. I hope there is lots of bromance. I don't know the other guy though.

I didn't completely dislike that drama but you're right, he was one of the best things about that show. he was so lively and animated. I haven't seen him in a role as good as that one since. I hope this one will bring out the liveliness in him again.

Min-woo is just one more good reason to help me get past the drama title, Modern Farmer. Don't know why, but it bugs me to death. Enlightened Agricultural Engineers would be better.

Aw, this is great news. I've been a big fan of Park Min Woo ever since FBRS, and I love him even more after watching him on Roommate. He's just such a good person. very caring and thoughtful, and I know he's been wishing for more, career-wise. I've always thought he had the ability to be a leading man, and I'm so happy for him!

I don't know if I can take the amount of cute he and Lee Hong Ki are going to deliver though. I've a big fan of LHK's acting too, I think he's extremely talented, and I can see the two of them having a lot of chemistry as actors. this one sounds very fun!

This sounds like a lot of fun! I'm curious of who the leading lady will be.

Aw, so please for Min Woo!
But I'll most likely be giving this a miss. Love Hong Ki in FT Island, but his acting has never done it for me. Plus, the plot sounds stupid and it's a weekend drama. Says it all.
But hope Min Woo shines and moves onto bigger and better things (i.e. Something I will watch).
And I really hope they get a cute, young and TALENTED female lead.

yeayy.. i adore him since flower boy next door and liking him more since roommate, so happy to see him act in drama from major broadcast.

i think the band member is full team now.
with hongki as vocalist and guitaris, min woo will play keyboard, lee shi un as bassist, and for drummer we get a real drummer from N.Flying, Kim Jaehyun (band from FNC, but not officially debut yet in korea) i assure you he's good looking and sweetie cutie like Min Woo.

can't wait to watch this drama

You mean after Endless Love it will start airing because Good Days is a KBS's family weekend drama whereas Mordern Farmer is a SBS' one.

Anyway, it will be a pass for me . Weirdly, I have always wondered why KBS were the only one rulling in that timeslot. Like what makes the Korean viewers prefer their family weekend dramas over SBS and MBC but I have come to realize I was doing the exact same thing lol. The only family drama I have watched from the other 2 is News Tales Of Gisaeng from SBS.

YAY! I love Park Min-woo. He's one of the reasons I watch Roommates. Glad he's getting more exposure and drama offers. Just wish he'd be *the* lead for once.

This show sounds more interesting the more I hear about it. Looking forward to it!
