Yoo Yeon-seok for leading man in Hong sisters’ Warm and Cozy

Woohoo, Yoo Yeon-seok (The Informant, Answer Me 1994) is up to play the lead in the new Hong sisters drama Warm and Cozy. Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!

We have some reports that say he’s confirmed, others that it’s not finalized yet (but in the “final negotiation” stage), but in any case this is still great news and he would be a fantastic choice. It likely also means Rain is out of the running, and I’m fine with that, because: Yeon-seokie!

A few months ago I might’ve squeed over “Chilbongie” getting the part, but ever since his super-endearing and entertaining stint on the travel reality show Youths Over Flowers, my love is for Yeon-seok first and foremost. (He was so warm, considerate, and competent as he took care of his travelmates, who really might have starved (or gotten lost in a foreign country) without him, and then we wouldn’t have gotten to see his hilarious bromance with the ever-adoring and clingy Sohn Ho-joon, and maknae Baro.)

I’m still champing at the bit to hear more information about the actual plot; so far all we know is that this is a romance set on picturesque Jeju Island opposite (probably) Kang So-ra (Misaeng), and will showcase the Hong sisters’ trademark trend-setting writing — probably full of puns and sharp jokes with a dash of meta commentary. Which means it’ll make me laugh, and then cry (mostly with laughter), and maybe the jokes will be a little silly, but they’ll be good-natured and warm-hearted. The perfect way to lead us into summer.

Warm and Cozy will follow Angry Mom on Wednesdays and Thursdays and premieres in May.

YES!!!!!! YYS deserves a leading role. Pretty upset that KWB turned down the offer but replacing him with YYS? Even better. YYS IMO is the better actor out of the two and I get to see myc Chilbongie back in a drama! *throws confetti*

Please please please say yes! I don't care who ends up taking the female lead's role. I'll take Yoo Yeon-seok even if they announce he was co-starring a tree.

true.... I am trusted for 6 ep after knew Jisung in KMHM even before I just sold for the plot/story
and I am not gonna letting this one go if YYS confirmed
finally male lead for him......
okay.... I've faith in him as actor and I think the plot is quite light and light drama has its own charm

Tbh KMHM is worse than this.. I mean, this drama just go from Kim Woo Bin to Rain to Yoo Yeon Suk.. The 3 is not bad actor and can hold their own. While in KMHM, lots of confusing news, almost no leads 1 month in before Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum saved it.

Though I'm still sad that Woobin turned this down (because I just need to see him in a romantic lead role), I super excited to have more of Yoo Yeon-seok on my screen. I hope Kang Sora signs on as well. I think I can imagine these two being cute together.

OMG, Sunny! I cried so many times during that movie it was so awesome. I haven't watched AM94 yet but there's something utterly likeable about Yoo Yoon-seok. I don't know what it is but it's there. I like Kang So-ra a whole lot after watching Sunny and her WGM stint with Leeteuk.

Amazing drama.
Watch Sunny too! It's a movie about 7 girls' friendship in the 80s. Also stars Shim Eun Kyung and Min Hyo Rin and did really well in the Korean box office.

You should try Misaeng regardless of Kang So-ra. If you don't like it after 5 episodes, you won't like it. Kang's role is rather limited in that drama though, she plays that domestically detached, emotionally suppressed, super-competent archetype (compare the title role from "Seo-young").

The "Sunny" movie has her as a supporting character, but she only has very little screen time.

"Dream High 2": she's awful and the show is awful. Don't watch it unless you decide to become a fully dedicated hater of Kang So-ra. (And even then, don't watch it.)

Fool Watch/Ugly Alert (what's with this title?) was her only other lead role, as far as I remember. It's a 100+ episode daily family drama, and a solid one at that as far as I can tell. Kang So-ra does a solid job as a mildly defrosting ice queen early in the show.

"Doctor Stranger": the show is a horrible troll writing job. At the same time, it's a pretty good benchmark of Kang So-ra's acting. But don't watch it.

I am on board, not just because chilbong
but I have faith on yoo yeon seok, that guy is seriously good, he always get bad guy role because of his image in movie, but he is more than capable to be leading man, go for Yeo yoon Seok
for Kang Sora, i like her acting since dream high 2 even if I feel bad for the drama and her, but she prove me right in Misaeng,

both of them have unique charm

I haven't watched him in anything but going by the responses, it seems like a good choice for the drama. I only hope that the Hong sisters have a good,bound script in hand so that the drama is fun too. Now I'm waiting for Kang So Ra to confirm :D

i'd been pretty disappointed that kim woo-bin turned this down, but yoo yeon-seok sounds pretty good too. it's a fresh idea anyway, while kim woo-bin (bless him) is a bit more obvious of a choice, simply due to his popularity.

They both are now confirmed! *dance the YOF silly dance*

Here are the confirmation news descriptions of the drama/ their characters from enewsworld article ( http://mwave.interest.me/enewsworld/en/article/89999/yoo-yeon-seok-and-kang-sora-confirmed-for-warm-and-cozy )

Warm and Cozy was created based on the idea of the love between an angry ant and the love-deprived grasshopper. The drama takes place on the beautiful island of Jeju, where a restaurant called ′Warm and Cozy′ is located. The Korean title, Mendorong Ttottot means ′warm and cozy′ in the Jeju dialect, and just like the meaning, the two main characters will learn to love each together.

Known for his good looks, eloquent speaking style, and gentle manners, Yoo Yeon Seok will be taking the role of Baek Geon Woo. Although he is all about what he likes and what he enjoys, Baek Geon Woo is a character that is still liked despite his brutally honest personality. Despite being an intellgient man who knows exactly what is good about himself, Baek Geon Woo is also a romantist, moving all the way to Jejudo and setting up a restaurant for the sole reason that the girl he likes is there.

Kang Sora will act as the crooked and complaining ′ant,′ Lee Jung Joo, who receives more pain and suffering in comparison to all the effort she′s put into life. Although she acts as if she knows everything in the world to put up a shield, she actually holds a very weak and gentle heart. After living in Seoul and working her butt off for five years, Lee Jung Joo still loses her job and her boyfriend, ending up in Jejudo to start a new life not by choice.

When I heard Kim Woo Bin declined this drama my interest is almost gone completely since what makes me interested is only the potential combination of Kim Woo Bin and Kang So Ra, since the premise sounds meh to me so far. But now that Yoo Yeon Seok is in, I might watch it even more than when KWB was casted. I really like YYS in Reply 1994. I hope the story will be good and won't be just any generic romcom.
