Ha Suk-jin in contention to join Beast’s Beauty

Well, so far so good: SBS’s Beast’s Beauty just cast Namgoong Min (Remember—Son’s War) to star, and now Ha Suk-jin (D-Day) is up to play his half-brother.

The producers, who previously collaborated on Girl Who Sees Smells, initially got the green light for a drama about idol producers titled Dance With You, but have since revamped their concept. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say they completely chucked it and started over with a page-one rewrite, since the new description has nothing in common with the old one: It centers around one man’s up-and-down life, his love story, and his revenge — but as an upbeat, satisfying romantic comedy.

I don’t know how they’ll achieve so many things, but you know, I’m willing to give it a shot since I like the sound of the disparate parts (and Girl Who Sees Smells was also quirky in its mixing of comedy, mystery, and crime thriller). Namgoong Min plays an ex-convict who went to prison after being wrongly accused, who then becomes a human rights lawyer and even the heir to a chaebol company.

All we know about Ha Suk-jin’s character is that he’s the hero’s half-brother; as they share a mother, I’d say there’s a good chance Ha Suk-jin won’t be a chaebol. (Not that mothers can’t be chaebols, but so often these stories of lost or newly discovered chaebols have a patrilineal bent.)

Baek Jin-hee (My Daughter Geum Sa-wol) is in talks to play the cute, determined young woman who falls into a love triangle with both brothers. (Of course. Why even have two brothers in a drama if you’re not going to make them fight over a woman?)

Beast’s Beauty will broadcast after Mrs. Cop 2 as an SBS weekend drama, and premieres on May 14.

Do you have to express your dislike for the actress through every article about this drama? Please.. whoever ends up being the female lead for the drama doesn't really matter. It looks like the female character plays a very minor role in the drama anyways.

His name is Namgoong Min, not Nam Goongmin like you may guess. :)
His last name is Namgoong and his name is Min, it's very rare last name/surname in Korea.

I got really excited for a second. Ever since I saw the suggestions for Ha Su-jin to play the lead in Lucky Romance I've been kind of hoping for Ryu Joon Yeol to drop it and Ha Su-jin to be cast. I thought this article was going to be that news. *Siiigh* Oh well.

I'm not so sure about this drama right now, I hope it's good, but I am not going to get my hopes up until the everyone is cast and w get some teasers

Agreed with above sentiments that Ha Sukjin has charisma in spades and absolutely should be a lead (major lead character). Dramaland is so unfair sometimes.
