Seo In-gook cast in new weekend family drama

Someone’s star is rising. You always know people are jumping on an up-and-comer when they start getting cast in their next dramas halfway into their current ones. Answer Me 1997′s bleeding-heart boy next door Seo In-gook has been cast in the new MBC weekend drama Rascal Sons, due out next month. (The title is a loose translation of 아들 녀석들, which could range in meaning anywhere from cute/adorable to racally/unruly, because it’s an implied sentiment, not a direct one.) It’s going to be your bread-‘n’-butter weekend drama: one big family, many sons. Go figure, from the title.

Na Mun-hee (Padam Padam) and Park In-hwan (Only You) play Mom and Dad to three sons. Eldest son will be played by Lee Sung-jae (Poseidon, pictured below), a dentist and a single dad who raises a daughter on his own. Myung Se-bin (Goong S, pictured below) will be his love interest, and she plays a widow who also has a daughter. Aw, I already like that setup.

Seo In-gook has been cast as the youngest son, and there isn’t much character info for him yet, but I’m sure we can expect typical rascally maknae behavior. After his claim to fame (audition reality show Superstar K), he’s only been in two projects — Love Rain and the current cable series Answer Me 1997 — but it’s his 1997 role that’s turning heads. It’s a buzz drama and he’s doing a great job playing a natural, crush-spastic, mortified-by-life-itself teen.

Directing is PD Kim Kyung-hee of Gloria, and writing is Kim Ji-soo of Scarlet Letter. These types of family dramas don’t really have premises other than “one big family lives in a house,” but this one in particular says it deals with marriage and divorce, through which the sons will discover the true definition of marriage. O-kay? That’s a roundabout way to end up back at square one. I think we should just stick with: Three Pretty Sons. Come watch! How’s that?

Rascal Sons follows God of War and premieres in September on MBC.

He didn't have a big part in Love Rain, but what he did have was good.

Unfortunately, Love Rain was SO not worth suffering through it. SIG was cute though...one of the few rays of sunshine, I thought.

(I'm just gonna leave that rain/sun metaphor alone... yay for willpower!) ;)

Seriously, though, don't bother.

Oh no... He's just a boy?! CRAP. Just our luck then.

(dramagods: Of course he'll be a boy, he just won a pretty-boy reality search thingamajig!)

B-b-but in my dreams, he looks 28-ish and smirky and manly and all grown-up with a side of bacon. (in short: perfect)

Sadly, the d-addicts haven't stalked him properly yet. http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Seo_In_Guk shows a blank page. :'( Does anyone know his exact age?

I'm such an old lady now that I've given myself 1990 as a cut off. Anything before that is fine, anything after is just plain wrong! Glad to know he's in the "appropriate" territory :)

Others have been saying that Seo In-gook looks like Jaejoong but while there is a slight resemblance in a facial feature here and there, not really.

SIG overall facially reminds me of Kim Ji Hoon (Joseson-X-Files), atho the eyes are a bit diff.

The guy has talent - so I can definitely see him having a successful acting career.

Yeah, he looks like kim ji hoon. And a little resemblance to jang ki ha too.

I think it's his jawline that mostly looks like Jaejoong's. The rest of his face, not so much.

I'm really happy for him because he has new projects after the curent one...I'm hoping to see him in a leading role soon and not in a weekend drama...pretty please...a drama like Shut Up (i know,i know,i'm asking to much already)

I'm in. I love weekend dramas from smile you to sols pharmacy to ojakgyo. I'm a sucker for those no matter how frustrating it can get...and long too. There's always this one actor and character that would keep me. So now I'm so addicted to weekenders. It really started with sols pharmacy. Bokshil had me with her hair.

Awww. Good for him. But I have to be honest: I squealed when I saw that Lee Sung Jae is going to be in this drama. LSJ is my ajusshi crush. ^_^

The moment I saw this title I was like YES because I'm fangirling over him (or at least his character) so hard right now. But - family drama. It's not that I don't like them, but they're hard to keep up with because they don't get uploaded on the internets as well as others and. Hm.

@Kit-Dramafever is now "promoting" Reply 1997, has it rotating on the home screen, so I'm hopeful they are going to have it subbed and loaded more quickly. Hulu is linking to it thru DF too. Good sign.

I like this kid, I like the kid from Big too, I pick them both as ones to watch lol

A good singer, a quick-wit person, a good athlete (in Dream Team 2), and now he's on his way to show us that he's a good actor as well... Go SIG!

Awww... So gorgeous AND he's proving quite the formidable acting talent, quite smitten by him in 1997.

And and... Myung Se-bin and Lee Sung-jae paired together? Ooh la la. That's quite the OTP.

Lee Sang Jae was a dentist in the Wife's Credential. He's a dentist here again now. I'm going to give this a go for him. Yes.

I really liked him in "Love Rain". In "Answer" he is the bomb! He's got charisma by the buckets.

I'm so happy for him. He's proof you don't have to go through some epically long idol training system in order to make it in the entertainment industry. He's done well as a singer, in variety, and lastly in dramas. TPTB tried to squash him when he made his debut in the music industry, thank goodness they didn't succeed. The Superstar K alumni are taking no prisoners.

Just when I thought I was cured, since none of the current airing dramas interest me, I gave "1997" a try. Then: wow.... who is this Seo In Guk?! And the drama itself, Reply 1997, is really a must-watch. So realistic, no over the top unrealistic plot, character, etc. I find all characters interesting, which is quite rare for me. So no forwarding for me for this one.
