Yoo Yeon-seok courted for SBS revenge melodrama Deal

Ooh, Yoo Yeon-seok in a revenge drama — I like the sound of that. It might even erase Warm and Cozy from my brain, which would be a nice bonus. Deal is the new project from writer Choi Ho-chul of melodramas Mask and Secret, about one man’s revenge against a chaebol family, described as the male version of Mask. It’s headed to SBS this summer, and Yoo Yeon-seok is considering an offer to headline.

The series will be about a man who has very little by way of money but is very happy in life, until the death of his beloved sibling who was his whole world. He’ll vow to get revenge and then enter a chaebol family to that end, where he’ll meet a woman who has every material wealth but can’t find happiness. The revenge is described as satisfying and ardent, and the love story will be about crossing the divide between social classes and discovering the true worth of love.

The story doesn’t sound very new, and it’s really very similar to Mask in broad strokes, but the revenge element appeals to me a little more. Yoo Yeon-seok can certainly do dark, serious, or smoldering characters well — it’s actually the type he plays more often in films (Haeohwa, Perfect Proposal, The Royal Tailor, to name a few). So it’ll certainly be something to look forward to if he signs on.

Deal is set to follow Entertainer (after Come Back, Ajusshi) on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning in June.

Yoo Yeon-seok. Mask. Secret. This should be crack.

Warm and Cozy never happened. It was all a figment of our imaginations, conjured up by late nights and greasy pizza. One good burp and it'll all go away.

Normally I don't watch these sort of dramas but Warm and Cosy was just terrible for the main leads. Just take any good meaty role please.

'about one man’s revenge against a chaebol family, described as the male version of Mask'

GROUNDBREAKING!

That time slot will have Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk's dramas too. Good luck YYS!

And he'll have to compete with that guy from Reply 1988 and the actress from Kill me Heal me too before LJS' drama starts so he'll really need that luck.

I'm sure He'll nail it! I'll def watch if He signs on. But idk I don't want Him to take this drama.
Well, whether He says yes or no, I just hope Deal won't become frustrating toward the end.

Yesterday I was so against of him doing the drama because of the overused storyline as well as the tough competition.

But after a night sleep I woke up realising I really want to see him coming back to dramaland so bad. Lol. So now bring it on YYS bring it on.

YAS! This kind of drama really suits him.
He was awesome in Perfect Proposal. Still creeps me out when I think about it.

Interestingly enough, my fav YYS movie to date is an indie movie he did in his pre Reply era, the title is Re encounter.

I am not that thrilled about the overall plot of Perfect Proposal, but his acting is on point and the VISUAL *____*
Also Whistle Blower/ Royal Tailor/ Mood of the Day did not really meet my expectation :(

Excited to see Heohwa though, it just days away of its release, hope it did well in the box office.

I definitely know he was the bad guy there but I felt some sympathy for him ??.

Oh so that W & C really that bad? Lol I remember people went gaga about it here... One of the reasons was because it's from Hong Sisters ?

I mean, yeah, it was bad, but if you enjoy something, i don't think others opinions should matter.

But, then again, god forbid people don't act completely over the top and extra on this site over a drama/actor/actress/or casting.

W&C was almost "Big" bad (another Hong sisters drama) and that's saying something.

Anyway, seems like W&C hasn't hurt YYS's career - he's been awfully busy since then.

imo it was worse than Big (which was a complete disaster). The cast did have chemistry (which I think is why some people liked it/found it entertaining) but it truly was godawful in every other way. Idk, I thought the general consensus was that it sucked lol. People went way more gaga over Master's Sun on db for sure!

i don't recollect it being THAT bad... but i don't remember how it ended either. i just remember the first half being really relaxing and pretty to look at (ocean scenery!) and the leads were cute. it was just very chill, and i think i was in the mood for that.

but again, i hardly remember the actual story itself.

Yes, the first part was, well, "warm and cozy" and I really enjoyed the secondary story line and the mayor and all the scenery. The biggest flaw was there simply wasn't enough story for the episode count. They coulda made it work if it was a 12 episode drama. The end is a little bland and forgettable, but I do remember that kiss. Wowza!

After his brief appearance in Running Man's last episode, I do believe he will do revenge well. He has an evil streak in him for sure :P...

'Warm and Cozy'- never heard of it (Though I am still so happy that Kim Woo Bin never took 'that' show) :P :D

Can't he just take revenge on all the writers and PDs who wronged him and put him in shitty dramas? Way better than typical cliche chaebol revenge.

Hmm this kinda like Bad Guy?? (Kim Nam Gil version), or maybe just me.
This is the time to dive into Yooniverse again, I think he'll do good cause he always did. I hope the story can go Secret road more rhan mask if it can and please a good contender, sometimes when good actor meet another, they can lift each other up.
Choi taejoon? D.O? Choi Wonnyoung? (Idk why this name pop up suddenly in my head)

I like it. Let's make it happen.
He usually plays such jerks. His Chilbongie character was actually a new thing for him and before that I hadn't even realized I had seen him in other things as a complete asshole.
So, it'll be nice to see him play both sides in one show. I'm sure he can be convincingly dark while still being charming. Dangerous!

one thing for sure, revenge dramas are definitely not up my alley. i've watched enough of them by now to know that for sure... to me, they just all seem the same, and i'm generally just sick to death of stories about chaebols. they just keep recycling the similar plots over and over again.

surely, surely it's possible to write shows without the presence of chaebols/the uber rich?

two cents from a jaded drama viewer :)

This is going up against KWB-Suzy and LJS-HHJ right?

I find YYS to be the best actor out of these three guys but it all depends on the female lead.

Warm and Cozy never happened! It was a bad bad nightmare.

I'm trying really hard not to get excited about this because I know how disappointed I'll be if he does not accept the role.

Yeonsuk is such an amazing actor in the way he can bring to life the sweetest characters (Chilbonggie!!) and also the most despicable ones that you can't help but absolutely hate with all your being (see Werewolf Boy, Perfect Proposal). He would be a perfect anti-hero in a revenge drama.

Plus I just really want to see Yoo Yeonsuk on my screen again no matter what.

It'd be amusing if they casted Ji Won for the lead female considering their dating rumors. She could accept to put the rumors to rest.. It's rare for actual couples to be in a drama together, isn't it? Couples usually RESULT from the drama

So when we're talking about Choi Ho-chul the actual Choi Ho-chul of MASK, I have no complaints. Put Yoo Yeon-seok in, and I am interested now. Can't wait!

"Deal is the new project from writer Choi Ho-chul of melodramas Mask and Secret, about one man’s revenge against a chaebol family, described as the male version of Mask."

What is it with writer Choi Ho-chul and revenge melodrama?? But anyway, this show looks pretty tempting and promising, in spite of its major similarity with Mask. Hopefully they will courted a great actress to become YYS co-star and love line. I'm thinking of IU, is it possible?
