So Ji-sub courted to play ghost Sohn Ye-jin’s grieving husband in Be With You

So Ji-sub (Oh My Venus) has received an offer to play Sohn Ye-jin’s (Last Princess) counterpart in the Korean remake of Japanese melodrama film Be With You (Alternative title: Coming to See You). If he confirms, it’ll be a reunion project for them after sixteen years since their first project together, MBC’s Delicious Proposal (2001). This upcoming movie Be With You is about a close-knit family that’s torn apart when the mom dies of a terminal illness.

Sohn Ye-jin confirmed at the end of last year that she would be playing the deceased mother, and her agency is currently in the last rounds of negotiations with the Be With You team. So Ji-sub is up to play her husband, who’s left behind, and at a complete loss as to how to carry on with their young son. And he’s thrown off again when his wife suddenly appears again in front of them, a year after her death during the rainy monsoon season.

Both actors have strong records in the melo genre, with So Ji-sub’s breakout project being I’m Sorry, I Love You, and one of Sohn Ye-jin’s most popular films being The Classic. They both have these expressive eyes that convey such soulful depth—I was particularly impressed with Sohn’s portrayal of Princess Deokhye in her last film. In their project sixteen years ago, they starred as siblings who had a typical bickering relationship, but now they’ll be a wistful married couple, so it’ll be interesting to see how that chemistry translates.

Be With You is being directed by rookie Director Lee Jang-hoon, and is expected to begin filming when the casting phase ends.

I don't find So Ji-sub very attractive but those abs are like a piece of art. Yes please.

I'm sad because you dont't find him appealing (except the abs), but in the same time I'm glad because there is less competitor among jisub's fans :p

I didn't find him attractive until I was halfway through Master's Sun, where I suddenly decided he was just absolutely adorable. ^^

Same here, I think the good fitted suits he wore all the time as a Chaebol really helped too haha

I'm quite a fan of his, and it's not because of his abs. I like his dramas, I've watched practically all of his early dramas, including We're Dating Now with Chae Rim, which was such a simple yet charming show. He likes to play aloof, broody kind of guy roles, but when he turns on the charm, like in Cain and Abel, he is irresistible.

Whoah! I suppose beauty is on the eye of the beholder. But really?! Even my very traditional mom thinks So Ji-sub is "very handsome", because of his eyes, of course.

It's a shame there are 2 pictures that show the male lead had no plastic surgery in 16 year but he definitely doesn't look like she did 16 yrs ago when they first worked together.

This kind of ghost story creeps me out a great deal and I won't touch it with a 10-foot pole because it will haunt me for years. I wonder though what I would do if someday my favorite actor decides to star in one.

I will at least start any drama So Ji Sub is in and most likely finish it. Plus, how does she still look the same? I'm jelly.

That is a must. He should only sign if he is allowed to do that. Or perhaps a bathtub. or while exercising?

The post title says ghost but neither visually nor storywise it is a ghost in the original. To everyone who haven't watched it yet, it is very recommended. Even though the fantasy genre is not my favorite genre at all, this movie is in my top five movie list. Maybe not entirely due to the story line but the acting was top notch. By all three. Later the main leads even got married. Sadly they divorced.

So I recently discovered Delicious Proposal. They're nice in it, but the drama itself is very dull. I'm happy to see them back together, not finishing that drama so I'm more than ready for them to be a married couple. Wish it was a TV drama though!

This sounds like a really interesting premise, and both of these actors would be PERFECT for the roles. I hope So Ji-sub takes the part.

THE CLASSIC is one of my favorite movies. Love the music and the dual time lines.

I didn't realize how many of Sohn Ye-jin's other films and dramas I've seen: ALONE IN LOVE, GREAT AMBITION / DAEMANG, PERSONAL TASTE, A MOMENT TO REMEMBER, PIRATES, and APRIL SNOW, which I just watched about two weeks ago.

ALONE IN LOVE is another special favorite of mine. It's one of the most realistic depictions of a relationship I've seen. Kam Woo-Sung was great as the other loner in the relationship. The rest of the cast was solid. They don't make Kdramas like that nowadays. Highly recommended.

Now this casting I like.
The Jmovie casting was great (the jdorama less) and it would be a interesting project.
I wonder if they'll keep the twist or change it in the Korean version.

I watch quite a number of Korean Dramas, the best actors with really fantastic acting skill, in my opinion are, So Ji Sub and Jo In Sung. Out of these 2, I like So Ji Sub better because of his manly look and character and nice body (of course). He is my #1 Korean actor. Love him totally.
