Yoo Seung-ho offered webtoon adaptation The Man Living in Our House

It’s double the good news: Yoo Seung-ho (Remember—Son’s War) is considering a new drama, and it’s a comedy! Not that I don’t appreciate Yoo Seung-ho’s tears — I just think he had enough sadness for two lifetimes in his last drama, and could use a sunny, comical character this time around. He’s considering an offer to star in an adaptation of the webtoon The Man Living in Our House, which comes from webtoon creator Yoo Hyun-sook of Ho-gu’s Love and I Steal Peeks At Him Every Day, which was the source material for Flower Boy Next Door.

The new drama is currently in negotiations with KBS for a fall timeslot, and attached are PD Kim Jung-min of stylish historical dramas Princess’s Man and Joseon Gunman, and writer Kim Eun-jung of Flower Boy Next Door. It’s a really solid group of people gathered for one project, and I’m happy about the writer since Flower Boy Next Door was the better of the two dramas adapted from the webtoon author’s work.

The Man Living in Our House is a completed 60-episode family comedy webtoon about a young woman whose life is suddenly turned upside-down by a man claiming to be her stepfather. The part she can’t understand is that the man is her age, and though Mom has passed away, he has a marriage certificate showing that he was married to Mom just before she died. The heroine, a flight attendant, is convinced that he’s a con artist who had ulterior motives in marrying her mother and sets out to prove it.

Yoo Seung-ho is up for the title role, a farmer in his mid-twenties named Go Nan-gil (a pun meaning “hardship road”). Despite his age, he’s already lived through a lot of turmoil and was a legendary gangster in his past, who used to deal in bonds. He’s a warm-hearted character who has lots of opposing sides to him — light and dark, prickly but innocent — and his goal in life is to protect his family.

I can’t even imagine how I would feel if Yoo Seung-ho walked through my door and said he was my stepfather. After regaining consciousness, I’d surely call the cops. It’s a strange premise, but this webtoon author has a knack for the unusual setup filled with quirky characters, so I trust that it’ll be entertaining. I’m laughing at the idea of Yoo Seung-ho having enough years behind him for a past life as a gangster, but I like the idea of him playing up his cheeky comical side. He’s even had practice playing a funny conman in his new movie Kim Seon-dal.

The Man Living in Our House is being considered for the October Monday-Tuesday timeslot on KBS, following Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and before Hwarang: The Beginning. For now everything is up in the air.

Oh! I think that's the language's equivalent to "oppa".

0

lol awk translation, its just how you refer to an older male you are close to. jie jie would be the female equivalent. and they even have words for a younger male or female you are close to as well. (didi and mei mei). there's prob more nuances as well but i'm not well versed in mandarin. (i do know since both sexes use "ge ge" when referring to an older guy, it doesnt have quite the same connotations as "oppa" does)

0

Ge/older brother for me is quite a nice name to call your boyfriend, it uses differently with brother or quite difderent feel with oppa ( just a little bit)
I actually doesn't like to translate many language to english because it has different nuance and it doesn't feel the same even if it's translated literally right.

ROFL

So are the stepfather and stepdaughter gonna fall in love? Can't imagine if there's no love line in kdramas. The critical issue will be who's the lead actress.

Yes! Time for a comedy for YSH. Except that it's a loonnngg drama. I don't want that kinda commitment unless it's fantastic. Webtoon means it's half an hour?

No way it's going to be 60 episode just because Webtoon has 60.. It will be cut down to 16 or max 20 episodes right..?

Every time I see Yoo Seung Ho in a possible project I think of his almost pairing with Kim So Eun. Can it finally happen this time? I don't think KSE is busy nowadays. I think they could be cute...

They almost paired in one movie (cannot remember) but KSE dropped because of conflict schedule (if i'm not mistaken).

Yes I also think they could be cute pairing. And KSE seriously need a lead role. sigh.. She already completed her webtoon filming so probably she is free and available now.

No, I think girlfriday was stating that the webtoon, itself, was completed at 60 episodes. Think of it as chapters in a book, but not quite as long.

This sounds good. And I quite like the adaptations of this webtoon artist's work. I think I liked Hogu's Love a little more though because I love the everyman male lead and wish there were more of them.

And lol, the entire situation. I feel like if a cute guy came to my door saying he was my step-dad I'd probably be at first shocked then suspicious then maybe even a little pissed (honestly cute guys don't come up to me often) and maybe even a little proud of my mom, LOL. Basically, I'd be going through a lot.

Yessss me too. Hogu's love was full of unexpected moments. It was so good. Flower boy next door, however....lacked substance in my opinion. I feel like it was mostly carried by Enrique's energy (YSY)

I think Flower Boy Next Door's charm is it's relatability more-so than the overall story. There were a bunch of charming characters in it.

Wow. I'm kind of curious about this one. How is he her stepdad? And why is he the same age as her? These questions make me want to watch the drama regardless of who's in it. These types of stories always make me curious of how it will play out.
And that's how I got into kdramas. Curiosity! I should get back into that again instead of watching certain dramas because of my bias. Riiight after Mirror of a Witch is done. (Yoon Shi Yoon hehe)

I'm of the opinion that he married her mom not because of love, but to save her? Eg. loan sharks, surgery, etc.

What's not to like? Yoo Seung Ho is an amazing actor, and breathtakingly beautiful to boot (goodness knows I rarely turn down an opportunity to ingest eye-candy). Plus, it's billed as a light-hearted comedy, something I'm always up for.

When I read the synopsis, I remember Japanese Manga. I forget the title. But the story is almost the same but it is a bromance. A man who just 3 years apart appeared in front of a teenage boy and claimed he was his step father, showed marriage certificate, saying he married to his mom before she died.
He took care of the boy and they have cute bromance.
So when read this, I think I can predict the story. Hahaha...

I think the official headcount is about 1,368,688. It may have changed in the minute it took me to write this post but I think my number is accurate lol. I love her so much that sometimes I wish for her to do dramas that don't even make any sense like those deep melos and such lol

This sounds funny. There are a few actresses close to his age who aren't doing anything atm, lets' see who gets it. And there isn't a lot of competition going on in the fall during the Monday-Tuesday timeslot, the big names were announced for the Wed-Thurs one so this might get pretty good ratings if the chemistry is right between the leads and the writing doesn't suck.

The premise is sooooooo weird but hope Yoo Seung Hoo accepts the offer, want to see him so badly in a comedy but hope the lead lady at least doesn't look older than him only if they spin it off saying he is the young stepfather...already imagining him as a gangster with years on him when he looks like an innocent puppy

That's a very unique story...if Yoo Seungho accept it, I will sure watch it. If he doesn't, I still will check it out.

If a girl can dream, I will soooooo darn happy if Jung Eunji act with him.I have always wished that they work together. They are exactly the same age as they both have the same birth day. She is really good at acting, and she can have chemistry with anyone because she makes friends with them easily off camera.
If you don't agree..at least let me hope??

"I can’t even imagine how I would feel if Yoo Seung-ho walked through my door and said he was my stepfather."|
that was the question to my reply above.
haha. oh-no, who act as the mom, how can Yoo be a dad? creepy.
"he has a marriage certificate showing that he was married to Mom just before she died?" (somewhat felt is this the kind of role that suit Yoo?)
was hoping he act in some big drama piece that can display his diff layered of emotions again, and this round really happy ending and win the girl in the end. i am so hoping.
