Let’s Eat 3 offers lead role to Baek Jin-hee
Baek Jin-hee (Jugglers) may become the third heroine to fall in love with Yoon Doo-joon (Radio Romance) in tvN’s Let’s Eat franchise, and has announced that she is considering taking on the foodie drama featuring single adults bonding over glorious mountains of shared food.
Yoon Doo-joon isn’t a lock for the third season, however, according to his management, who stated that his participation is not yet decided. We’ve heard previously that he was offered the chance to return as Dae-young, the glib foodie blogger who fell in love with two different ladies (Lee Soo-kyung and Seo Hyun-jin) in the first two seasons. As much as I don’t love the idea of the girlfriend-go-round (not when we get so attached to each one!), I do vastly prefer that scenario to not having Yoon Doo-joon back; I’m not sure we can still call it Let’s Eat 3 if we lose both the hero and the heroine from previous seasons.
There’s something about Baek Jin-hee that feels very much in line with the feel of the show and its two prior heroines, so I think she’d be a solid choice for the franchise. She’s a little peppy, a little neurotic, a little sassy—the kind of heroine who could hold her own with the hero not just in the bickering realm, but also the binge-eating one.
Let’s Eat 3 is looking at a premiere sometime in the latter half of this year.
