Character teasers for Top Star Yoo Baek
Kim Ji-suk (20th Century Boy and Girl) is working those abs and Jeon So-min (Cross) is tickling my funny bone in the newest teasers from Top Star Yoo Baek.
tvN’s rom-com drama Top Star Yoo Baek is the story of a haughty and conceited top star named Yoo Baek, played by Kim Ji-suk, who is forced to seek refuge on a distant island following a big scandal. Jeon So-min plays his love interest, Oh Kang-soon. She’s a free spirit, but she’s not afraid to work hard and get her hands dirty when necessary.
In the first teaser, we see Kim Ji-suk luxuriating in a fancy bathtub as his manager voiceovers, “Yoo Baek, this will all die down. Just relax for two weeks then you can make your comeback. Got it?” The shot cuts to an unhappy looking Kim bathing in a big plastic tub in what looks like a kitchen. We get a good look at his new, decidedly humbler, lodgings as Kim voiceovers, “You want me to live here for two whole weeks?” The video ends with Kim checking out his new rubber bath tub and saying, “Unbelievable.”
In the second teaser, we see Jeon So-min sleeping and Kim Ji-suk begins to narrate, “Her name is Oh Kang-soon. I’m–” but is suddenly cut off by Jeon screaming at him while throwing rice (or is it salt, like how salt is supposed to ward off evil spirits?). We see Jeon looking frustrated, throwing a towel at Yoo Baek, and chowing down. As the teaser finishes, we get to see her showing off some adorable dance moves with spoons and chopsticks in hand. Kim watches her dance, and we hear him say, “I have to live with her for two weeks?”
Kim Ji-suk is so underrated and I’m excited to see him playing the leading man in Top Star Yoo Baek. Jeon So-min’s run on the variety show Running Man has shown that there’s little the actress won’t do if it means getting laughs. Judging from the most recent teaser, she’s brought that ethos to her acting work and I predict lots of cute and funny hijinks between the two leads. The show’s two writers, Lee So-jung and Lee Si-eun, previously worked together on High Kick 3. PD Yoo Hak-chan (Ear Candy) will be directing. Top Star Yoo Baek is set to air Fridays on tvN starting November 16th.
