Yoon Jin-seo, Lee Jae-yoon tapped for drinky drama Cheers to Me

Food in dramas (specifically, the glorious, gluttonous eating thereof) is such a hot trend these days that it was only a matter of time before we got the drinky version (which I am fully onboard with). Now we’ve got Cheers to Me in the works, which has selected Yoon Jin-seo (Girl Who Sees Smells) and Lee Jae-yoon (Heart to Heart, Heartless City) to headline the project.

The series is based on a popular Japanese manga titled Wakako-zake, which is still ongoing; an anime version was also released this year. Cheers to Me will have Japanese co-producers involved and has already sold to Japan.

Cheers to Me, like Wakako-zake, follows an ordinary single woman who enjoys cooking and dining alone in the evenings, which offers a way to unwind from the stresses of work. Yoon Jin-seo’s character is an editor at a publishing house where she’s worked for the past ten years, while Lee Jae-yoon works in marketing at the same company. Their relationship is sometimes friendly, sometimes flirty, and sometimes competitive, and it sounds like they’ll have different approaches to food. While the heroine finds healing in food and drink, his goal in life is to live lean and long… at least until he discovers new pleasures and changes because of her.

It sounds like this’ll be similar to tvN’s Let’s Eat franchise, though with more drinking. Let’s Eat always made me desperate to eat something, omg anything, even when I wasn’t expressly hungry, so maybe Cheers to Me will be the first drama to make me want to reach for a drink instead. Okay, no, it won’t be the first drama to drive me to drink, but at least this time I could drink with the show rather than at the show.

Cheers to Me is the first original drama series for cable channel UMAX (an ultra high definition channel) and will premiere in November. I’ve got my glass filled and raised. Glug glug.

Such an interesting premise.. If it's half as good as Let's Eat season 1, I'd definitely watch..
Never heard this cable channel.. I'm afraid the drama won't be engsubbed... T.T

Pretty much. This channel will be supported by the newest 4D/4K Ultra/Ultra High Definition televisions currently being marketed by Sony and Samsung. But wouldn't that exclusivity really limit the show's viewer base unless there's some sort of converter available for non-ultra HDTV models? Kinda strange to go down that path. *scratches head*

I loved Jin Seo in girl who sees smells, she has to be one of the most coolest second female leads in kdramaland and I liked Jae yoon in Cruel City. In my mind it's like those two cops found each other haha, so I'm actually looking forward to this pairing. I hope it's subbed ☺️

Hahahaha I was just about to write the same thing. The mc's on Healing Camp kept teasing him that he should live to be 1000! Kookie should have been on this show instead of Producer :)

She's had lead roles. I like her, lots of personality. I'm not sure about his acting, only saw in Golden Rainbow which I HAD to drop. But the story sounds light and enjoyable. Looks good!

So, JB, GF and beanies...

In preparation for this drama, what do you all think is the best brand of soju available in the U.S.? I have never had soju, but I may need to get me some! :D

Ooh!

the relationship already sounds interesting, rather different than most k-drama pairings. But the best part must be her leading the healthy eater into food/drink temptation. Muahahaha.

that said, I wonder how many episodes can one fill with this premise?

"Wakako-zake" the anime was a nice, refreshing, relaxing watch, with insightful commentary on the joy of eating. But will it work as a drama? With a permanent male lead (only the female lead was the recurring character in the anime)?! Let's see.

That ultra high definition screen might make Lee Jae-yoon's acting look good.

You're kidding me, right? Her and Nam Goong Min were the reasons I watched the show to the end.

This looks interesting! Like a drunk version of Let's Eat. The main guy was great in Heartless City. The girl I've only seen in Sensory Couple but I loved her character.

Am I the only one who wants her to be paired with Nam Goongmin? Lol.

^^^ THIS
The white room scenes in The Girl Who Sees Smells were my favorites because their chemistry was so HOT and I secretly shipped them even if it was so wrong.

I'm sold. But even though I love Lee Jae Yoon I wish Nam Goong Min would be in a lead role with YJS.
