Kim Ji-suk considers MBC rom-com No Sex and the City

One of the reasons I enjoy watching Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) is that he knows how to play men who complement powerful female characters without losing any of his own character’s unique charms, which is why it’s great news that he has been offered one of the leading male roles in the upcoming MBC drama No Sex and the City. This rom-com will portray the realistic lives of a trio of virgin girlfriends in their mid-thirties as they continue about their familial relationships, friendships, and romantic journeys.

One of the junior writers from the Answer Me series, Lee Sun-hye, will be the main creative force behind this new drama, and I’m excited to see what she does with this project because I loved all the warmth and deep connections in all the Answer Me seasons. Currently, Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine) is in talks to be one of the female leads, and I think Kim Ji-suk and Han Ye-seul could be a good match-up because they’re both such tall beautiful people.

But honestly, Kim Ji-suk could be paired with almost any actress with at least some personality and succeed. In I Need Romance 2, which was a drama that approaches a lot of the same material that No Sex and the City seems to address—what it means to live in the 21st century as a modern woman—he played his second lead character so well that I thought him a far superior alternative to the main lead, who was a petty ex-boyfriend/best friend. In Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People, he played his Yeonsangun character with nuance and complexity, and in Oh Hae-young Again he was absolutely hilarious.

With all this recent casting news, I’m becoming more excited to see how No Sex and the City will turn out when it airs this September, after The King Loves, which is the Monday-Tuesday drama following Lookout.

I love him so much. I cried so much when he didn't get the girl in I Need Romance because I thought he was a better boyfriend than the ex who treated her like crap. I love him when he plays funny and cute roles. I even loved him Angel Eyes but I didn't get second lead syndrome that one time because uhm, Lee Sang-yoon! I'm excited for him again.

I second that, Kim Ji-suk was amusing funny in Another Oh Hae Young. Rom-com is more suitable on him. If he say yes that I'm in!

I third that. (Does this phrase exist in English? Hehe 'third that forth that fifth that)

I adore him in Oh Hae Young again. He was just so hillarious and he made the best pairing with the person who play Nuna in that series. The scenes where he hid at the back of the sofa Eric and SHJ were kissing were just out of the world. It makes me giggle every time I watch them.

I would love to see him step into lead at last, he's nailed every end of the role spectrum and he was flawless as Yeonsangun in Rebel. Hope this does well!

I first watched him in Likable or Not - a daily or weekender I forgot but it was such a joy watching him as the lead opposite Han Ji-hye. Despite it being a fairly typical daily drama - poor guy meet rich girl, family opposition ensues - I was smitten by his solid performance. I get upset too that he didn't take any lead role again after that but thinking back, those roles are not a setback for him at all. His playboy role in Another Oh Haeyoung demands both great comedic timing and lots of heart which I think he nailed. His Yeonsangun role in Rebel is one complicated figure, he is a dictator but his complexes come from his upbringings and arises out of circumstances and Kim Ji-seok played a damn good Yeonsangun, at times vulnerable, child-like and another time chillingly despicable (I credit the good writing as well). So while I'm sad he doesn't get lead roles I'm happy too he get to play complicated roles which fully showcases his different charms and acting capabilities.

Wow, guess taking a role of a villain has its own magic! But then again it was a lauded performance. Am so glad he is finally in the spotlight.

Ooh! This is great news! I adore Jiseok in comedies. :) Someday soon though, I would love for him to reunite with Honey Lee in a romcom. With their combined comedic flair, it would be a hoot. :)

More success for him!

Yes to Kim Ji Suk. No to Han Ye Seul. She was so bad in Madam Antoine. Strange facial expressions. I'd love reunion between Kim Ji Suk and Jung Yoo Mi.
