Lee Beom-soo and Song Seung-heon courted for drama reunion


Song Seung-heon, Lee Mi-yeon, Lee Beom-soo

And the bromance lives on. I don’t know if Dr. Jin’s anything is something we want living on, but there’s no denying that Lee Beom-soo (Prime Minister and I) and Song Seung-heon (When a Man Loves) make a great odd (emphasis on odd) couple. They’re being courted to headline MBC’s new drama Triangle, along with Lee Mi-yeon (Noonas Over Flowers), Go Ara (Answer Me 1994), and Im Shi-wan (Attorney). Somebody went on a casting spree.

Triangle is the drama from the All In producers that was once called Hidden and also called Three Foolish Brothers, depending on what day of the week you were looking. It was considered, then back-burnered for the Monday-Tuesday slot following Empress Ki, and now it’s back on again. At least they figured something out instead of keeping three drama crews in limbo. At the helm is PD Yoo Chul-yong along with writer Choi Wan-kyu, who worked together previously on All In and Swallow the Sun.

The drama will be about three brothers who are separated by tragedy and then grow up to lead extremely different lives. Lee Beom-soo is up to play the hyung who becomes a cop, and Song Seung-heon will be the middle brother who’s a gangster. Of course he is. Because he’s Song Seung-heon. Im Shi-wan is the maknae brother who grew up in the lap of luxury with wealthy parents. The drama will be about the events that unfold as their paths start to cross without any of them knowing that they’re brothers.

It pretty much sounds like East of Eden, though we won’t really know until they reveal more story details. Lee Mi-yeon is considering a dramaland comeback as Lee Beom-soo’s love interest, and all we’re told is that it’s a sad love. There isn’t much information on Go Ara’s character, and she sounds like less of a lock than the others. Everyone’s still “considering favorably” for now.

Triangle is planning to follow Empress Ki in April.

As much as I love me my Hand Towel and Prime, this seems like a no go for Go Ara.

I know the audience is way bigger than a cable drama, so that is good for her career. It seems, though, like she could pick something more fun if that is the word.

I think they're trying to please every person attracted to men alive with the three male leads. Different ages, different styles.

Young flower-boy, mid-range eye candy, older charmer.

Even if the series fails, it wins. :P

A good story and impressive production would be nice, or then some good laughs, but if they get cast, at least it delivers on the more carnal pleasure side of things.

And different acting abilities ranging from best to worse. At least Lee Beom-soo doesn't have to carry SSH by himself.

@Kiara, I have not seen Im act, so acting skills I cannot judge past the two obvious ones. After 3 works together and Song is one of the few Lee has not managed to pass his acting skills too. Resilient non-learner.

If it is not going to be good or then hilariously bad like 'Dr. Jin', I demand to be given the topless oiled manbattle 'IRIS2' never gave.

Joking aside though, uber-makjang and Song Seung Heon do not go together, unless they are going for comedy again. 'When A Man Broods' was brain-numbingly silly.

But let's see where they go with this. If nothing else, it should be good for laughs.

Why Ara.. Why? I like to see her as a lead. Hm, well, it's okay, slowly I hope she will go there. Obviously she is better than Lee Yeon Hee and Yuna.

If anything, we can always marathon PMAI after it's done. Which is what I plan to do right after the last episode airs. All 17 glorious hours of it. (Please, please please, let the ending be great!)

ah, actually i expected Go Ara to appear in a mini series as the lead character1. After AM1994, i become her fan :D . She proved that being in SM (and almost become a SNSD member), doesn't mean she isn't a bad actress and i think she's the best in acting among other SM kids (don't count SM C&C actress :) )

and i think her portion won't be as much as other lead cast.

on the other hand, MiYeon noona!!! i'm glad she's finally comeback to kdramaland. still worried about her concern to not back to dramaland

Agree. i like my actors/actresses to strike while the irons hot to boost their popularity even more and make a statement that they're here to stay (in k-ent).
I wanted Go Ara to take on another lead role after AM1994, but if this ends up being a hit project maybe that isn't such bad publicity after all.

I honestly think both Yoona in PMAI and Lee Yeon Hee in Miss Korea are doing better job than Go Ara. But i still love her and i`m glad she is getting more Job. I wanted her to act opposite Lee Seunggi in You Are All Surrounded, but i guess not.

Awesome cast... my favorite gangster Song Seung-heon needs to be matched up with the sweet Go Ara. Who doesn't want to see the bad boy getting a good girl! I can't wait.

Is the rumor true that Empress Ki might extend 10 episodes? I love Ha Ji Won in this drama.

The more I watch LBS, the more I love him. He is the 1 who kept me till the painful-traumatic end of The Journey of Dr. Jin and Brain Fetus, he's the 1 who made the pain of watching bearable.. Now, I'll be there for him, cheering and praying for SSH to act better than Dr. Jin, if he's in.

Kim Soo-Hyun should play the little bro! IMS isn't a bad actor but I don't think he can help LBS carry SSH. I liked SSH in my princess but I hope he says no to this… Unless KSH steps in then between him and LBS they can carry SSH's deadweight >_<

SSH, I don't like much for his acting, but looks, his humbleness, his adorkable appeal (on occasion) and his personality that you can't quite hate.

Despite the cast I have to say I'm a hardcore story fan. I'll watch ugly people act beautifully a really great story. It's my curse in life.

SSH needs to stick to comedy. Why does he always attempt melo? It's clearly not for him LOL And I see MBC has him on a lock. Does he hate the other channels?

No no, he needs to keep doing melo, because he is the most hilarious when he tries to act melodramatic. This might just be a great comedy, if they tell him to try.

But yes, I doubt he suddenly improved in either genre. He looks like such a nice man, bless him, but an actor he is not.

Well I liked him waaaay better in My Princess though I have to say I preferred KTH better since she wasn't afraid to look ridiculous unlike actresses like Han Ga In and she had good comedic timing. But yeah, I don't think acting is his calling LOL

You forgot 'genius'. Genius doctor, genius maestro, genius barista (goodness, aren't they getting creative/desperate). At least none of the three here sound much like geniuses. Genius cop or genius gangster has not been done yet, though, so everything is possible.

Wow - that brings back memories - that is one OOOOOLLLLLLDDDDD Bollywood movie! Saw that one about 10 years ago even though the movie itself was like 30+ years old as evidenced by how young Amitabh Bachan looked in that movie.

Any way - anything with Lee BS - I can live thru just to see his charming self!

Am enjoying his current PMnI series (ending soon soo saad).

The thing about SSH is that each time i see him i don't really see a vast improvement -- let alone an improvement at all. That puzzles me considering he's shown awareness and was honest about his lacking acting talent. Shouldn't he work at building his craft?All these years in the business and the only time i thought he was putting on a decent performance was in My Princess (rom-coms seem to be his stronger suit).
But he has a pretty face and a nice body so why am i complaining.
That said, i'm not cuttin' much slack for him since he's been in the k-drama industry for far longer than Kim Hyun Joong(in the current AOF) and yet KHJ manages to wow us (or me atleast) -- not only physically, but mentally. and emotionally. You see that improvement, that desire to reinvent himself as an actor.

i'm not so sure about the story, but i love the cast if they actually confirm..i hope there's more to the loveline than EOE..it seems that i'm in the minority (i just might be the only one i'm afraid!) here who loves SSH's acting ( it's not because of his looks as i didn't even like his looks when i first saw him!) he's ofcourse lacking but i thought he was great in EOE,my princess and in my opinion he did improve alot in WAML..anyways i'm definitely in and waiting for updates....

I really enjoyed Swallow the Sun and I'm a sucker for stories about siblings, so I'd prolly give this one a go based just on that.

If they manage to lock in my Lee Bum Soo, then I'm sold. I'm totally down for another 20-25 eps of him.

I'd really have preferred Ji Sung as the gangster sibling, on account of him being a better actor and he's worked with this PD-writer team twice before. But I guess it'd be pushing it to cast him three times. lol

To be fair...I usually like SSH in gangster roles even if I 100% agree he's terrible at acting. Plus he's pretty and he seems like a nice person in real life. I can sit through him acting if everything else is great.

The biggest reason I had a hard time with Dr. Jin was cuz nearly everything else was a train wreck too.

I'm praying to the dramagods that the main sibling is Lee Bum Soo but something tells me it's gonna be the gangster middle brother instead. :/

Lee Beom Soo has been secondary to Song Seung Heon in all 3 works they have been in so far. I guess this will be the same, yes. Song is more marketable as a lead, in more countries too, than Lee.

I really like Lee Beom Soo (for Salaryman) and Im Shi Wan's (for Equator Man) so far. Song Seung Hoon- should stick to modeling. I normally either like a drama or am indifferent to it. Dr Jin was BAD (the original japanese one was GOOD though), bad enough that even with Lee Beom Soo on the show it was still bad.

Dr. Jin was the first drama I saw either in. And (until it imploded near the end) I was enjoying it. (I had just discovered Korean Drama and hadn't found this site yet--which has really helped me pick "winners" with the ratings. Still, I liked all the actors in Dr. Jin. The writing just was really strange.

I'm sick to see how this site is always and always ANTI SSH. Why? Why do you hate so much? What made? Leave man in the peace.Maybe you want to SSH to die. so get rid of him and you will be happy. Sad, very sad to see that.

Good luck, dear SSH! You're a great actor. You always work and you are wonderful.Bravo!

SSH >> not really a great actor. because, he always play character that in his comfort zone. he is very rare to explore other genre, other character. thats why i think SSH is very lame as actor. made me bored whenever he tried melo. clearly because he is not really good in melo.

but as individual >> SSH is a very charm with his face and hot body.

as an actor , SSH and his fans had to have a big heart to receive any critic. critic is good for an actor because means atleast there are some viewer want SSH be better as actor in future. but if SSH and his fans could not take a critic in very good way, i suggest SSH change his job from actor to Monk.

i really like LBS >> to me , LBS is one of great actor in korea now.i am very in love in his new drama : Prime Minister and I , very sad because next week is the final episode.

i dunno, but after the disaster drama on earth : DR. Jin, i think i said no to this new & reunion drama between LBS and SSH. Because Dr. Jin made me very traumatized until now. one thing, that drama can not give me an answer is about the "fetus" >>> there is no anwser about fetus thing in final episode. arrgghh

LBS-SSH hot guy bromance? GUd, but pliz keep it in real life. It's painful for me to handle another reunion from them. Even Yoona can transform amazingly when acting along side Lee but SSH... haizzzz, i doubt there is any hope left for him, unless he's going through special courses from his hyung @[email protected] Now i just hope one of them will reject it. But if not, then jakganim 'd better give us lots of topless manbattle or hot shower of those two as painkillers XD

SSH is soso cute, fans will always watch. I mean really, that man was clearly created in a lab by some scientists somewhere, people are just not that pretty! And he is not so bad at acting (so much hate people, calm down), he just needs to step away from melos & stick to lighthearted romcoms - play to his strength of charming and pretty, &maybe not be afraid to be dorky sometimes too, 'cause that would be endearing.
