Lee Jae-yoon and Cha Ye-ryun join Gold Rainbow

Huh, so I guess UEE isn’t the eldest sibling in her ragtag family of orphan kids, ’cause her new weekend drama Gold Rainbow just added Lee Jae-yoon (Heartless City) and Cha Ye-ryun (Royal Family) as her oppa and unni. Yes, but what I want to know is, when the hell is Jung Il-woo going to confirm this drama, so I know whether or not to care?

The new MBC weekender from the producers behind May Queen stars UEE as one of seven orphans who band together and make their own family. They’re poor but they work hard to take care of each other, and Kim Sang-joong (The Chaser) plays the adoptive father who takes them in. UEE’s character (played in her childhood years by Lee Chae-mi and Kim Yoo-jung) is named Baek Won (100 won), and get this: her oppa Lee Jae-yoon is named Man Won (10,000 won) and her unni Cha Ye-ryun is named Chun Won (1,000 won). Are the little ones named 50 won, 10 won, and 1 nyang??

Though she isn’t the eldest sibling, UEE will be the one who brings this family together. She rescues Cha Ye-ryun’s character from a destitute, abusive home, and Lee Jae-yoon will join them when he realizes that the father who went out to sea isn’t ever coming back for him. As an adult, he’ll struggle with feelings for UEE’s character, which he tries to repress given that she grows up as his sister. Sigh. I guess if neither of them ever thinks they’re blood-related, it’s not really fauxcest, but still. His character will be the quiet, steadfast, dependable oppa type, who shows his love through actions rather than words.

Cha Ye-ryun’s character sounds more like the twisted version of the heroine. While UEE works hard to be successful to support the family, Cha Ye-ryun will nurse a darker ambition, fueled by her hatred of being poor. She’ll be jealous of her sister, and try to take everything she has. Well, at least when Cha Ye-ryun plays characters like this, I don’t have to put any effort into liking her. The drama also stars young child actors Oh Jae-mu (Baker King Kim Tak-gu), Ahn Seo-hyun (Shark), and Choi Ro-un (Good Doctor), and is still finalizing the adult cast as the early childhood portion shoots.

Gold Rainbow follows Saturday-Sunday drama Scandal and premieres in November.

"Well, at least when Cha Ye-ryun plays characters like this, I don’t have to put any effort into liking her."

Has she ever played a likeable character? I don't know if it's her or the parts she plays but I find her sooooooo annoying. Even when she's being bitchy, she plays the victim. She's always kind of whiny and irritating. Looks like this will be no different.

Jung Il-Woo might do better. it might be a drama where he could shine but also might not. I he does have a way to bring out the soul of every character, but it doesn´nt feel like THE perfect drama. it would be good for us, but not sure if he should accept it.
he should do theater.

then again, if he becomes THE reason for people to watch the drama, then of course he would be irreplaceable, and he should accept. cause maybe he´d be really able to make that drama shine. plus it has City Hunter Daddy, and oh I myself would gladly take lessons of How To Be Bad-ass from that guy.

Really want to see this. Fell for Lee Jae Yoon as Hot Stepbrother in Yawang, continued to love him as Thighs in Cruel City (although never as much as I loved Baksa, of course) and now?

Uee's oppa, described as 'the quiet, steadfast, dependable oppa type, who shows his love through actions rather than words' All that and muscles too?

Yesss. I will be there, Jae Yoon. I will be there.

I love UEE, but to have these people who cannot act to join this drama is a huge minus. I tried to like Lee Jae Yoon, and gave him a chance in Heartless City, but man, does he overact a ton.
On the other end, Cha Ye Ryun doesn't show any emotion when she acts and her face always seems kinda weird to me.

I haven't watched any of Uee's previous drama works, but I do like her in variety, so if she is able to input any of that spunk she has in variety into her dramas, plus
On the other hand, I'm indifferent to Cha Ye Ryun; none of her previous characters have stuck out for me.... so meh to her
Oh dear lord, so-help-me-God with Lee Jae Yoon =( In Heartless City, at first, I just thought the acting was awks.... when it got to the middle and end of that drama, I was so annoyed with him.... HIM, not his character, but HIM T.T

Lee jaeyoon, I just recently learned he's Korean-canadian, which means he can speak English. I don't know why but there's just something hot about that despite the fact that it's obvious he would be able to speak English being canadian and all...

Cha ye ryun.......meh.

Oh hardass Kim Sang Joong. Will he be dorky dad or hardass dad? Judging by the names of the kids, I'm leaning towards dorky dad. But I can't imagine him as anything other than hardass
