Kim Ji-suk, Han Ye-sul confirm lead roles in 20th Century Boy and Girl

Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) has confirmed that he’ll be starring in Han Ye-seul’s (Madam Antoine) new rom-com. The title of the drama has changed from No Sex and the City to 20th Century Boy and Girl, but the premise is still the same. It captures the lives of a trio of modern women who are thirty-five years old and forever-singles who are solo not by choice, but by chance, as they mature in their friendships, family bonds, and romantic attachments.

Kim Ji-suk will play an investment banker with a Harvard MBA, and a background in Wall Street. He’s had a successful career filled with achieved ambitions, but he has an innocent side to him: He’s still loyal to his first love. Han Ye-seul, on the other hand, will play one of the main independent single women in the trio. Ryu Hyun-kyung (Empress Ki) is also considering an offer to be part of the trio as a diet-obsessed flight attendant, but she has not yet confirmed.

I want it to be a cool breezy watch that’s slick and stylish, but I know it’ll still have lots of heart because the writer is Lee Sun-hye, one of the junior writers from the beloved Answer Me series. With the three strong-minded virgins as heroines, I’m assuming it’ll tackle issues like career versus love, and patriarchal family duties versus present-day expectations, and hopefully friendship as well. Overall I’m totally onboard with the main leads and writer so far, and I’m looking forward to their chemistry onscreen.

MBC’s upcoming 20th Century Boy and Girl will begin airing after the end of The King Loves, which premieres in July.

. . . dramas may have put me on to the quest for skin that never ages . . . At least they also give me very good leads to follow in this hunt.

"No Sex and the City" sounded a bit tacky as a title. However "20th Century Boy and Girl" sounds more original, and I hope that the drama will have heart and steam :)
The male lead sounds like a character who is maybe too good to be true, but I'm not complaining!

Before reading the articles, I initially think "20th Century Boy and Girl" is manga adaptation, lol.

There is a manga entitled 20th Century Boys. But it has entirely different premise.

Four virgins, surely. Because of him being true to his first love and all, he'll be a virgin too, right? Oh HAHAHAHAHA I just cracked myself up ????‍♀️

Nah, he lost his virginity to his first love. She died after their one sole night together. He was so traumatized and vowed he would never sleep with another woman again. Until he met 20th Century Girl...

It would crack me up if Ye Ji Won cameo as his first love, but I hope she will not die coz it will be so sad.. Instead maybe after some their hot one sole night, she dumped him because she wasn't satisfied with his *cough* performance. lmao. But then the correct plot will be he is traumatised by it, and not loyal. hmm..

Finally! A drama where Kim Ji-Suk can be one of the main male leads and where he gets to have the girl. Yes and yes! And knowing the writer, I will probably find this show so relatable I won't want it to ever end. I'm so ready for this! Yessssssssss!

My catnip - close friendship between three women in their thirties or forties ? The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry and Fantastic were really great on this count. Here's hoping this one delivers too!!!

Thank you MBC for giving this talented actor appear twice in your drama this year and pls don't forget him during your year end award. ❤

Happy he is finally get his first lead role! Yeay! Urghh if only Kim Ji Hoon and Im Jo Eun are not doing that boring drama atm, I'll be happy to see them in this drama instead as among the main casts ? There's one more actress needed to complete the trio, right? I so want Honey Lee to be casted as well! ?

if Lee Hanui get casted, she'll be the main lead and HYS automatically become her buddy instead.

I'm happy Kim Ji-suk is going to be a main lead for this one. It is about The time. And I love slice of life drama, but... I just wish it airs in tvN or JTBC instead of MBC.

Oh, this person made me laugh a lot in Another Oh Hae-Young and I found him to me super funny and a natural comedic person. I think he makes a great second male lead. Though I would love to see him as the lead, I'm not quite sure if he is that suitable as the male lead tbh.. you know some are just great second leads but not the leads, we can sure find out if that's also the case in this one.

I think he is more than capable of leading a drama. I've seen popular dramas handed to far less talents *cough* [idols].
