Lee Soon-jae is Daemul’s (other) president

Everyone’s favorite grumpy grandpa Lee Soon-jae is joining buzz project Daemul, playing the sitting president. Go Hyun-jung‘s character is the newly elected president and Korea’s first woman to gain that position, and will get tangled up with Kwon Sang-woo‘s gigolo character.

Lee Soon-jae is one of those veterans who is constantly working; no doubt you’ve seen him in a half-dozen projects, or more. Among them: Coffee House, Wish Upon a Star, High Kick Through the Roof, Queen Seon-deok, Beethoven Virus, Mom’s Dead Upset, I Love You Don’t Cry, Yi San. (And that’s just in the past few years!) Lee has also played a president before, in Good Morning, President with Jang Dong-gun.

Filming on Daemul is scheduled to begin filming in late August or early September. (Note that it was supposed to have begun in June, and constant delays are one of the drama’s recurring problems.)

I much prefer this grumpy grandpa to the other one, who's currently in My Girlfriend is Gumiho, and much to my annoyance, seems like he's in every Hong Sister drama. Lee Soon-jae here is just funny and cute and grandpa-y!

President vs Gigolo? What a scandal!

I don't know what KSW is thinking choosing such roles after fathering a son. o , 0 Is he sick of playing hero for his family henceforth choose such opposite roles in acting? Oy!

I will try to watch Daemul for Milshil - I mean GHJ, and this cool grandpa.

It is good to see someone in his age in such good health and is still able to do something he likes and is very good at.
