Yoo Seung-ho out, Su Ae in for KBS’s The Man Living in Our House

 photo SuAe1.jpg

Weird family dynamics are expected for upcoming rom-com drama The Man Living in Our House. It’s based on a webtoon by the artist Yoo Hyun-sook, who created the source material for both Ho-gu’s Love and Flower Boy Next Door. Currently, talented actress Su Ae (Mask) is considering the role of the main heroine, a career-driven flight attendant, while Yoo Seung-ho ultimately turned down the offer to play the male lead.

After a long absence, the heroine comes back to her hometown when her mother passes away. To her surprise, an unknown younger man is living in her family home, and he says he’s her new father! A disgruntled and dismayed Su Ae sets out to prove that her new “stepfather” is a fraudster who pulled the wool over her poor dying mother. 

The Man Living in Our House is supposed to be a light-hearted and bright family drama, which will be a change-up for Su Ae, whose most recent projects have been pretty heavy roles. She played an oppressed rich housewife in Mask, ambitious ruthless female president in Yawang, and tragic Alzheimer’s patient in Thousand Day Promise. So, she has said that she’s been looking forward to working on a romantic comedy. Her last attempt at the genre was Bottom of the 9th With 2 Outs. It wasn’t too successful ratings-wise, but she gave a memorable comedic performance as quirky failed writer.      

Therefore, I’m looking forward to how she untangles this complicated family tree situation. The Man Living in Our House will premiere on KBS this October, and has secured the Monday-Tuesday slot after Moonlight Drawn by Clouds ends.

Seems like maybe they've decided to cast older anyhow. Good. This does sound cute, but I'm glad YSH opted out. Will be nice to see Soo Ae in a romcom again though! I really like her, but she normally does melos with makjang and that is just NOT my thing. So I rarely get to see her.

Interesting to see that Soo Ae is even considering a light hearted drama. I've always associated Soo Ae with heavy melodramas lol. But for her sake, I hope that she doesn't take up this role and find a better project.

Thought that this would be better on tvN...I don't trust KBS nowadays.

you should watch 9 end 2 outs then. It's a great slice of life rom-com, I loved it to bits, and soo ae was excellent in it.

For some reason, I'm actually really interested by this premise. It seems like a lot of others are skeptical, but even though I'm not sure how the leads will get out of that situation, it sounds like it has the potential to be adorable.
Will definitely see what the rest of the cast shapes out to be

I like the premise too (even if YSH is sadly out). I love when they invert the hierarchy thing in SK. Though I don't understand it completely, I just find the awkwardness funny when they mess with the banmal/jondaemal because of reversed age or experience XD

good that he turned down the job. Coz it is risky working with kbs. Once ur rating down despite of good writing quality, they will cut it.

Have tried so hard to connect with her in dramas but I just don't feel it. Seen two of her dramas(Queen of Ambition and Mask) and they did nothing for me. Skipped half of Mask just to know how the story was going to end. Its not always the plot. I just never connect when she's on the screen.

Interesting plot tho. Can't imagine walking in and BAM my stepfather is exactly my age. I'm definitely going to poison him. Hahaha!!!

I exactly share your feelings.And damn the reason for getting interested in this drama is also out,so I'm out too I guess.Also no offense to her fans but Soo Ae kind of gives me a supporting actress vibe,rather than the main one.On Mask I was more hooked to Yu In Young's character,while Soo Ae's acting seems a bit underwhelming at times.

I just watched her in Queen of Ambition and Mask. I don't think she is a great melo actress , sometimes her acting like a mediocre one. But she can act, just some of us cannot really connect with her acting. In Mask, her character was supposedly interesting but end up as a boring one. Yoo In Young stole her place esp in second half of the drama.

I feel the same too ..
I watched her in mask and 1000-day promise .. I liked both dramas but I couldn't like her ..
it may be true that she had great chemistry with both KRW and LJH but that was it .. I couldn't connect with her acting and couldn't feel her pain ..
she's considered a great melo actress in Korea so I was wondering if only I didn't like her

I don't mean to sound rude but, her voice annoys me ... I can't watch actresses when I can't bear their voices so I'm dropping this drama if she's in :/

This could be a smart and creative drama in the hands of TVN or JTBC, but KBS is handling it? Not so sure

i remember that baseball drama, that was so ages ago! i found her really likeable in it.

unfortunately i don't find her at all likeable in her heavier, serious roles. she doesn't make me want to root for her and i can't seem to connect with her. i think a thousand day promise was the worst...

I think the premise sounds interesting. And also, whenever you try to distill a creative work in one sentence it usually sounds bad.
For example, one of my favorite books can be described with the sentence, "a short, barefoot guy finds a piece of jewelry in his house. The book follows his adventures as he goes with a friend to throw it into a volcano."

Sounds boring, huh?

But I loved Lord of the Ring.

I think the premise, a girl who comes home to find a younger guy who claims to be her step dad could be a good K-Drama, depending on the writing. And I liked Bottom of the 9th.

Even though this drama doesn't really have much going for its plot, I would still watch it. Hearing that it's gonna be on KBS has made me think otherwise.. (Ever since they cut my favorite tv show T _ T) I hope that this drama is at least 16 eps.

KBS is being arrogant after DOTS' success. Hopefully they'll eventually learn ratings ≠ quality and few low-rated dramas like Beautiful Mind are actually a gem.

I'm interested now that Soo Ae's in, a bit sad YSH won't take the project but I think considering Soo Ae and YSH age gap, it's better they aren't paired together. Enough with huge age gap romance -___-

And me too since Love Letter. And I do get offended when some one said she's not good enough to play the lead. I hardy cry when I watch dramas and she's one of a few can make me cry. That's all I have to say.

Different strokes for different folks. I always get what she conveys and I find her subtle ways very expressive. But some people see her as detached and once I remember someone described her eyes as "dead fish". For the life of me I cannot understand that but there are other actors with legions of fans that I just don't get, so fair enough.

I think compared to a lot of Korean actresses, Soo ae can act well and has charisma, i.e. which I don't find in many Korean actresses. Many of them look the same to me. Lol.
Hope that they will pair her up with a handsome oppa, maybe Jo in sung?

I actually think it's a cool plot because I have read the web toon though half way cause it's hard to read in Korean ? Hopefully they will cast someone hilarious for the role of the stepdad! And yes Sue Ae is the daughter so this will probably be a older woman younger man thing again.

This sounds like so much fun! I'm always up for cohabition hijinks, and Soo Ae may just fit the role perfectly. That said, I'm glad Yoo Seung-ho dropped out, I just can't see him pairing well with her.

Loooove Soo-ae! Glad she's taking on a light role. Bottom of the 9th is still one of my favourite dramas and one of the few that I re-watch now and then. The premise sounds great and nothing like what's airing currently. I hope they cast a capable actor. Imagine the hijinks??

Had not watched Soo Ae in anything else except Mask and loved her in that. She and JJH were just too adorable for words. Hope this turns out to be a good show for her. Also, she is in Running Man this week!
