Smile finishes casting, begins filming

The new SBS drama Smile [or Smile, You aka 그대 웃어요] has found its leading man to play opposite Lee Min-jung (Boys Before Flowers, Who Are You) in her first leading role. Although the cast already includes Family Outing‘s “Chunderella” Lee Chun-hee and Que Sera Sera‘s Lee Kyu-han, neither of them will be the main love interest. That role goes to Jung Kyung-ho of Ja Myung Go, You’re Far Away, and Time of Dog and Wolf.

In the story, Lee Min-jung is the daughter in a rich chaebol household, while Lee Chun-hee is her immature older brother. When her family meets with financial ruin, she’s dumped by her former fiancé (Lee Kyu-han) until he decides he wants her back. Meanwhile, she and her family move in with their former chauffeur, played by Gourmet‘s veteran chef Choi Bool-am. The ex-chauffeur now runs an auto center with his son (Chun Ho-jin of Job Well Done), who is married to Song Ok-sook (Beethoven Virus‘s nervous cellist). The two families struggle to adjust to living together, making for lots of bickering but also warm family moments and laughs.

Pretty solid cast, I think. Aside from those above-named actors, also cast are Choi Jung-yoon (Bad Couple, Romance Hunter) and Kang Seok-woo (You’re My Destiny, Pure 19).

The drama held its first shoots on September 1 in Seoul at Seoil University. Smile is written and directed by the pair behind last year’s hit romantic comedy The Last Scandal of My Life, and will follow Style on weekends, beginning September 26.

chunhee as the immature older brother, LOL. it sounds perfect!

WOW at the long hair on Jung Kyung-ho! I've only seen him in Time of Dog and Wolf where he had really short, almost government-issue hair. Which makes sense I suppose, since he played a spy. Anyway, I like it, hope he keeps it that way. ;-)

I'm watching Hon and in it Lee Kyu-han plays a particularly nasty serial killer. There were many tense scenes with him and a couple of the main characters, and he is very convincing in the role, but the whole time I was watching I was completely distracted by one thing. He has the most unbelievably long eyelashes I've ever seen on a man. I mean seriously, ridiculously, to-die-for eyelashes. It's not fair at all.

Sounds pretty good actually, and Last Scandal was a well written and charming show so I'll expect the same quality. Hopefully it'll be good.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing Lee Min-jung in this. I kinda liked her in BOF. I'm not familiar with the male lead though (but the pic is hotness!).

if it's the people from Last Scandal responsible for this drama, I'll be sure to give it a try! ...and is it just me or the picture of that guy kinda looks like Kim Hyun Joong (Jihu F4?) from a certain angle?

anyway, looking forward to this!
