Lee Se-young stars opposite Suho in fantasy drama

Okay, so I still have no idea if the new fantasy drama How Are You Bread is or isn’t a web drama (because they keep talking about it in the press as if it’s a full-length drama, but it doesn’t sound like the plot of a TV drama to me), or if EXO’s Suho is any good at acting. But I do know that I like Lee Se-young, especially with her recent turn in Vampire Detective. So I’m happy that she’s got a leading role in a bubbly romance, whatever the format may be.

The drama is about a geeenius patissier whose bakery sells wish-granting bread every morning. Suho has been cast as the mysterious baker, and Lee Se-young has signed on to play the heroine, a variety show writer who goes undercover to infiltrate the bakery, all in an effort to get the chef on her show called “3 Bakery Emperors.” Her character’s name is No Mi-rae (literally, “no future”), and she’ll stop at nothing to rope the hero into a TV appearance.

I love that Lee Se-young changed up her image lately, because her badass character in Vampire Detective is great for her. She’s sassy and tough and funny to boot, and I like that it’s a departure from evil second lead roles or even the sweet innocent ones. She actually has a lot of credits because she debuted as a child actress, but I’ve never thought twice about her until now, even though she’s always acted well. Apparently she should’ve been badass all the time, because now I’m a fan.

I don’t think she’ll be doing much ass-kicking in the bakery drama, but hopefully it’ll be cute. I mean, it HAS to be cute, because I don’t think anyone’s going to watch it for the deep meaning behind bread that grants wishes. Delicious, light, and airy — I think that’s the recipe we’re aiming for here.

How Are You Bread starts shooting in April.

Here we go again. Another Kpop idol paired with a talented actress. It would be nice though if this Suho guy proves me wrong for the sake of the production crew and cast at least. There were only few kpop idols who proved me wrong like Lee Joon, but then again he quit being an idol since he wanted to act in the first place.

Seriously, casting should stop getting influenced by big agencies. Virtually every idol from SM capable or not is casted in one drama or the other.

She'll probably have to carry the entire thing just like Moon Ga-young did in Exo Next Door.

Because unless Suho has shown some huge (and I mean drastic) improvement in his acting, he really isn't lead role material, going off his hilariously bad scenes in END.

I hope Suho's improved drastically from END days... not just for him but for me as well, I want so badly for him to be able to carry a role but honestly, I can't see it rn... And Lee Seyoung does a nice job in VD, so at least I don't have no expectations at all. As for the title though.. lmao "How are you bread" and "Master God of noodles" -- Who names these dramas?

I would recommend Adolescence Medley to anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Lee Se-young and Kwak Dong-yeon star in it and they're both great. (I'm hoping for a reunion one day!) It's a drama special that's about three episodes or so. The first episode is pretty funny and the last two take a more sweet/bittersweet tone. Overall its great to watch if you've only seen Lee Se-young as "the bitch from Trot Lovers".

I surrender KDrama titles! I will now just accept whatever words are put together as a title.

I haven't seen Vampire Detective yet (one episode a week will kill me), but this lady was awesome in Hot Young Bloods, too.

Allkpop reported that this is a web drama...which made a lot more sense to me considering the casting.

First saw Lee Se Young in Hot Young Bloods, that was a good kick-ass role too as the closet gangster. Too bad the next time I saw her was as the makjang second lead in Trot Lovers. Guess she can really shine with a well written character. Still in awe with how she (plus Lee Hyun Woo) can rock that kind of hair colour tho!

Just recently discovered Lee Se-yeong ("Adolescent Medley", "Trot Lovers") was the younger Choe Geum-yeong of "Jewel in the Palace" (her adult character by the long-retired Hong Ri-na).
Though I'll admit I was annoyed at her character in "Trot Lovers"...I miss her 10-years-ago version over any day (also "Adolescent Medley")...

I'm still putting my hopes in Suho though, granted his major is in acting...

She looked terrible in Trot Lovers. And I mean it as an actress. She really surprised me in Vampire Detective. Good for her to get a lead.
