Lee Seo-jin considers MBC weekend drama

Everybody’s favorite grumplestiltskin, Lee Seo-jin, is crossing back to drama waters after dipping his toe into the variety pool (Grandpas Over Flowers) and getting sucked in by the Na PD riptide (Three Meals a Day, as well as all of the follow-up Grandpas seasons): He’s now considering a new MBC production titled Hundred-Day Wife, his reps confirm.

The character he’s up to play burst onto the music scene as a singer with an original song that became a huge hit, but the initial wave of popularity soon waned and he ended his singing career without regrets. Afterward, he focused on songwriting, and earned his fame in that arena. The character description sounds exactly up Lee’s (polished, scrubbed-clean) alley: He’s got aristocratically handsome looks, cool confidence, a way with words, and an overseas education. Did you write this show just for him?

Then there’s the woman who lost her husband early and struggled to raise her only child, a daughter, on her own. She’s diagnosed with a brain tumor, but after meeting our hero, she begins to think of her and her daughter’s future again. Lest this all sound like trite terminal-disease melo fare, the description assures us that the drama intends to avoid that kind of contrived plot to depict life’s ironies, as told through small daily stories and a young girl’s narration.

Sadly (for me), Hundred-Day Wife is a weekend drama; I only say it’s sad because I don’t often feel drawn into weekenders, although those shows get big audiences and are comfy career moves for actors. Hopefully this drama will be more invigorating than Lee Seo-jin’s last weekend series, Wonderful Season, which I mostly watched for him but found too placid to sustain interest.

Hundred-Day Wife will be written by writer Jung Yoo-kyung of Insoon Is Pretty and You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin, and directed by PD Kim Jin-min of Pride and Prejudice and Road No. 1. It will follow the popular weekend series currently airing on MBC, My Daughter Geum Sa-wol, for a February premiere.

You know...I honestly don't think he can pay the role of a 'common' man. Lol

Heard this is a miniseries just to allow more time for Jin Se-yeon's "Flower in Prison."

Maybe someone should start a massive "fan based" outcry for her to be cast in a daily.

The best possible outcome would be if she could be promoted into becoming the Susan Lucci of Korea... She would receive public acknowledgment and top pay, her fans would get unlimited viewing and her antis wouldn't have to complain about seeing her cast in dramas they like. Win-win-win.

Same... I personally find his looks attractive in a non-conventionally hansome way? It's his charisma, like you said... I thought he played Yi San so well.

I want his twin sister in drama Wonderful Days as his co-star in this drama. Lee Seo Jin and Kim Ji Ho chemistry so good.

Please no, It sounds makjang, and of course, MBC always make makjangs. I don't want my cool ahjussi to star in a crap drama like this.

I don't mind seeing him in that type of role. I like his image best when he takes a protective-type role. But only when 'protector' is of the 'considerate partner' variety, not the 'enabler' one.

He's so handsome for an ahjusshi *_* his dimples are soooooooo cute.

His agency is quick with the reply for once, they suck in promoting their artists but at least they seem like a family. Hopefully, they chose a great script for him, he used to be super popular in the past.

I think it'd be more intersting tho to see him play a goofy character to really differenciate LSJ the actor from grumpy cat LSJ.

If he's confirmed, I hope for a good co-star, it'd be all best to have Choi Ji Woo, Koreans already ship them hard lol.
