Character teasers for Top Star Yoo Baek

Kim Ji-suk (20th Century Boy and Girl) is working those abs and Jeon So-min (Cross) is tickling my funny bone in the newest teasers from Top Star Yoo Baek.

tvN’s rom-com drama Top Star Yoo Baek is the story of a haughty and conceited top star named Yoo Baek, played by Kim Ji-suk, who is forced to seek refuge on a distant island following a big scandal. Jeon So-min plays his love interest, Oh Kang-soon. She’s a free spirit, but she’s not afraid to work hard and get her hands dirty when necessary.

In the first teaser, we see Kim Ji-suk luxuriating in a fancy bathtub as his manager voiceovers, “Yoo Baek, this will all die down. Just relax for two weeks then you can make your comeback. Got it?” The shot cuts to an unhappy looking Kim bathing in a big plastic tub in what looks like a kitchen. We get a good look at his new, decidedly humbler, lodgings as Kim voiceovers, “You want me to live here for two whole weeks?” The video ends with Kim checking out his new rubber bath tub and saying, “Unbelievable.”

In the second teaser, we see Jeon So-min sleeping and Kim Ji-suk begins to narrate, “Her name is Oh Kang-soon. I’m–” but is suddenly cut off by Jeon screaming at him while throwing rice (or is it salt, like how salt is supposed to ward off evil spirits?). We see Jeon looking frustrated, throwing a towel at Yoo Baek, and chowing down. As the teaser finishes, we get to see her showing off some adorable dance moves with spoons and chopsticks in hand. Kim watches her dance, and we hear him say, “I have to live with her for two weeks?”

Kim Ji-suk is so underrated and I’m excited to see him playing the leading man in Top Star Yoo Baek. Jeon So-min’s run on the variety show Running Man has shown that there’s little the actress won’t do if it means getting laughs. Judging from the most recent teaser, she’s brought that ethos to her acting work and I predict lots of cute and funny hijinks between the two leads. The show’s two writers, Lee So-jung and Lee Si-eun, previously worked together on High Kick 3. PD Yoo Hak-chan (Ear Candy) will be directing. Top Star Yoo Baek is set to air Fridays on tvN starting November 16th.

Thanks @stroopwafel
What fun! Kim Ji Suk at last in the lead and Jeon So Min whom I loved in 1% of Anything. She really looked different here, I could not recognise her at first. More fluffy stuff to relax with, is always good, as I wade through the end-of-year crazy procurement period at work. 😆

The amount of hilarious hijinks that will ensue during his stay has me excited. I hope because So Min's character is not from the city isn't made to be overbearing and an airhead. i'm getting major Duk Seon vibes from her so i hope she's at least charming.

I’m so ridiculously excited for this drama. I hope it doesn’t let me down because right now it looks like it has all the ingredients to be exactly what I need this time of year.

Thanks for the update on TOP STAR YOO BAEK, @stroopwafel! The teasers are indeed entertaining. Yet another heroine from a family of female divers? -- but this time without a spy in sight.

Heo Jeong-min (villainous Minister Kim's son in 100 DAYS MY PRINCE) teams with KJS and Lee Han-wi (currently Eun-ho's dad in THE BEAUTY INSIDE after a fatherly turn in LAWLESS LAWYER) in an OH HAE-YOUNG AGAIN reunion, which I anticipate with glee. With veteran ahjussis Jung Eun-pyo (currently an evil lawyer in THE PLAYER) and Ryu Seung-soo (THE PACKAGE) among the cast, I'm anticipating plenty of hijinks.

Per AsianWiki, the show will air at 11PM on Friday nights only. Given the viewership figures for THE THIRD CHARM on Fri.-Sat., and MBC's DAE JANG-GEUM IS WATCHING very late on Thurs. nights, I'm concerned that competing TGIF festivities will make for a lean audience, dang it. But even if one of my fave princely tyrants has been exiled to Friday night oblivion, I'll tune in for sure, if only to appreciate how he origami'd himself into that rustic washtub. ;-)

Y'know. I kinda like a small, humble cottage like home with open walls, balcony and spaces around it with spectacular views. If I ever make enough money, I wish to buy this type of home and spend comfortable weekends and holidays there. It'll be sooo awesome!!

YAAY it looks fun! I’m so ready for this show!

Maybe we’ll get a Ha Suk-Jin quality cameo, since both Jeon So min and Kim Ji Suk did cameos for Drinking Solo . She had a confrontation with lobsters there, as I recall... 😂

Well, he's in a rubber bath tub but he's a total fish out of water, as they say. Can the man look any more annoyed with his current situation? I can already see him in full diva mode while the island folks will have none of it. *laughing*

Yeah but not as an actress. Even if 1% remake was good, she didn't have one big success.

So, I guess I am the only one who has about as much enthusiasm for this show as a root canal removal. The plot this tiresome at this point and the only thing that will guarantee my interest is if the male lead walks around all sixteen episodes without a shirt.

Ok, I'm getting more and more excited for this! I love So-min in 1% and Running Man; and I also love Kim Ji-suk ever since Oh Hae Young. I def agree, he's soooo underrated.

I think he's one of those rare versatile actors who can play comedy, romance, melo and even evil characters so effectively and I love him for it

I want this drama now!!! Kim Ji-suk, how lovely you are! I think he’ll be highly entertaining in this role. It’s the opposite of his 20th century role, where he was the “normal guy” infatuated with the “top star.”

this looks cute. rly like jeon so min even tho 1% of anything is one of the most sexist pieces of trash i've ever seen. so i couldnt keep up. she's SO CUTE. hopefully it will be one of those warm and cute and ~life lesson-y~ dramas. i had a really big thriller/horror streak the past couple of months but now i want something fun and cool.
