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.
