Chae Soo-bin and Min-ho confirmed for new “hyper-real” Netflix drama


Chae Soo-bin, Min-ho

New Netflix drama The Fabulous has cast Chae Soo-bin (A Piece of Your Mind) and SHINEE’s Min-ho (Yumi’s Cells) as its leads. The romance drama is a “hyper-real” miniseries about youths in the fashion industry who are full of dreams and bursting with passion. Why does this synopsis suddenly give me Record of Youth vibes? (Hopefully it’ll be much better executed, and with a better storyline.)

Chae Soo-bin plays Pyo Ji-eun, who leads the marketing events department for a luxury brand. She’s always liked beautiful things and wanted a career in fashion, so she works hard to survive in this tough industry.

On the other hand, Min-ho plays Ji Woo-min, a freelance retoucher who has talent and handsomeness, but doesn’t have any passion. He’s not tied down to his romantic relationships or his work… although that may change as his ambiguous relationship with Pyo Ji-eun develops.

Directed by PD Kim Jung-hyun (Legal High, Hwayugi) and co-written by Kim Ji-hee (SF8: The Prayer) and Im Jin-seon, The Fabulous is expected to be released in 2022.

Netflix is really flexing her muscle in K-dramas: they directly investing in production, while Disney+ and AppleTV+ only buy in finished products.

Which part of why I do not subscribe to Disney+ or AppleTV+. I may not be the biggest fan of Netflix but they do some things right.

Well, it's not wrong to (or not to) subscribe Disney+ and AppleTV+. Even Netflix started by buying K-dramas, and investing in some of those in production (To be exact, Mr. Sunshine, which they invested half their budget to get the right to air the show to 190+ countries).

Today most of the production companies and the TV stations are pretty separate in terms of production itself, even though they may be under the same corporation (Like Studio Dragon and tvN both under CJ E&M). What Netflix has done well is to invest in studio themselves, so they can produce their own show (Kingdom and Squid Game are two of those examples), and give screenwriters as well producers a lot more freedom to do what they want (Some of those shows, also Kingdom and Squid Game, can't be aired in even cable televisions). However, More foreign companies may also result into K-dramas doesn't look like K-drama, Jirisan is actually one of those. What I really want to is, even some of those dramas are adaptation, I want them to have some Korean elements, like Designated Survivor: 60 Days, The World of the Married, and currently, Inspector Koo.

Other then their own production studio, Netflix done well because they open an office in South Korea and ask local talents to get the right show, and The Swoon, the YouTube channel exclusively showcasing K-drama clips (are they choose it well, that's another issue).

That's not true. Disney+ and AppleTV+ have also invested in production. Pachinko and Dr Brain are produced by AppleTV+ directly. In fact Pachinko is touted to be more expensive than even The Crown. Disney+ has invested in several of their own Kdramas not just Snowdrop and Moving.

So it’s just Now, We Are Breaking Up with people I like. Ooookay.

Chae Soo-bin sweetie I love you, but please make better drama choices. Between this and her upcoming disney copaganda show, it’s a tough time for a fan.

And Minho, god bless him, but my boy’s not exactly the best actor… *hides from fellow Shawols*

I fear for this show.

he's performed well in his recent roles, even if they haven't been huge roles. idk why people still comment this about him as if he hasn't moved on from his to the beautiful you era ┐(‘~`;)┌

I do think he’s improved, but as you said yourself, it’s in smaller roles. A leading role is a huge jump up from that. And Chae Soo-bin is immensely talented. I’m afraid that gap will be obvious unless he’s improved significantly à la Yuri in Bossam. On the contrary, It’s always a delight to see great performances from unexpected places.

As for why I commented about him in the first place; well, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having honest criticisms of an actor’s capability. Especially as consumers of their work. This applies to every actor, not just Minho.

Sounds like Record of Youth meets Now, We are Breaking Up but hopefully much better than both. I do like Chae Soo-bin but haven't been able to sit through one of her dramas for awhile.

*Erasing @missvictrix's comment about Record of Youth from my brain*

At first it reminded me of the next step in another Minho drama, Because it's the First Time but that one had an ensemble cast.

So after Kang Daniel for Rookie, she will act with Min-Ho. I hope that both of them will be as good as her! She had such a great chemistry with Jung Hae-In in A Piece of Your Mind.

She does a lot of dramas/movies about young adults.
