Lee Seo-jin dons a tux to go with his silver spoon

At this point it’s just a gimme to cast Lee Seo-jin to play the cold city man type (chadonam), since urbane and upscale is exactly his image. But when you’re so exactly suited for a type, perhaps you just go with it? And based on these fresh photos taken from the set of his new drama, he certainly looks the part to a tee. Snaz-zy!

His latest project is the upcoming MBC weekend drama Marriage Contract (formerly titled Hundred-Day Wife), in which he plays a cool, haughty, proud man who enters into a contract marriage with a young single mom (UEE) who receives a terminal diagnosis. Once an immature rich boy who just enjoyed having fun, he then taps into his skills at business and becomes a workaholic. Judging from the tux, I’m guessing a workaholic who still likes to party, though I imagine his parties are more cigars-and-monocles affairs than raucous blowouts.

Lee said of his character, “From the outside, he looks extremely cold, but he has a warm heart and cares about his mother dearly.” Yes, but he probably hires someone to do her shopping and chores, right? I can’t imagine him putting in the manual labor himself, and he admitted, “What you see in variety [Three Meals a Day, Grandpas Over Flowers] is how I really am.” You mean all the complaining about chores and grumbling was real? I’m pretty sure we already knew that.

Marriage Contract premieres on March 5, and despite being a Saturday-Sunday series, it’ll clock in at a short 16 episodes.

I love them both but.... this pairing is so weird. And it isn't just the age difference.

i know exactly what you mean. Aside from just the big age gap something else feels off.

I love him to pieces. But did his face get photoshopped? He looks good but not that line free?

But sigh, can UEE convince me that she is a suffering terminally ill patient?

But heck, I am watching it for him anyway.

I believe you are right about being photo shopped. He normally has a lot more lines and has a rough look (in a good way) but in these photos he looks too different. Strange that they would do that for the photos when in the live drama he will look his normal self plus with HD you can see every pore in the face. The pictures do look good though.

What happened to his face? People should just age and NOT still pretend to be young!...

I don't think he's pretending to be young.

I think people are photoshop crazy. Or should I say filter.

It's just the usual airbrush.

Well, at least he's still got his dimples. (They aren't as deep as they were before, though.)

“From the outside, he looks extremely cold, but he has a warm heart and cares about his mother dearly.”

Whaaat...? A man who's cold to everyone but his mama? That's supposed to be appealing?

Maybe that is just how he starts out but then learns to be warm on the out side when he gets attached to the little girl.

“What you see in variety is how I really am.”

The variety I'd love to see is LSJ on a trip with NaPD's Iceland cast.

Polar opposites.

A man his age is better looking with lines. He has a refine image that actually benefits from a little age.

16 ep is definitely doable for me. I just can't seem to tolerate UEE for some reason. Her acting style, maybe??

You know I have to say that I find him more attractive now than when he was young.

I so want to watch this Seo-Jin in this series, but the thought of pairing with UEE... eh... can't tolerate it

I think Lee Seo Jin is the most natural actor in Korea. Some of celebs in their late 20s, 30s and 40s look strange day by day with their swollen cheek. Some said it's because of botox or filler. At least till his latest drama, I don't find his face like that.

That doesn't mean he finds her attractive. We can't assume just because her fans like her that he will, but I'm sure he must be easy to work with and that they will have a good working relationship.

His drama character described him perfectly as his real life. I guess the production looking for the perfect man for this character...

I agree with you, but the strange thing is that in his interview he said when he did 3MAD & GOF he was himself and he hopes that his fans can compare what we see in the variety show to his character in this drama and appreciate the difference. I found that odd because I thought he was basically playing himself. LOL

Seeing the changes in him in the previous year, and realizing how in the next 12 months, he
will alter even a lot more, blows my mind. Ahead of my eyes, he will
- he has - become less and significantly less of a baby and morph, somehow, into a little
boy.
