L Dares to Love in new rom-com with Lee Yoo-young

The first script reading stills have dropped for KBS’s new rom-com Dare to Love Me (previously Treat Me Carelessly), with L (a.k.a. Kim Myung-soo)(Numbers) and Lee Yoo-young (Insider) as our opposites-attract main pair.

Based on a popular webtoon by the same title, L takes on our hero Shin Yoon-bok, who shares a namesake with the real historical figure and painter from Joseon times. It’s apt in a way as our story’s Yoon-bok is a 21st century scholar and stiff upper lip, whose family remains steeped in Confucian traditions. From generation to generation, Yoon-bok’s family has upheld their heritage at the Sunsan village and our hero, in turn, lives by the high-minded Confucius philosophies.

But because ~fate~ and ~drama~, our heroine is named after the also real Joseon painter Kim Hong-do. In contrast to Yoon-bok, our Candy Hong-do (Lee Yoo-young) is a modern breadwinner woman who provides for her family through thick and thin. And despite having to pinch through her pennies, Hong-do faces her obstacles with a determined smile each day. Even with no connections in a competitive field of work, our heroine won’t let anything deter her from pursuing her dream to become a designer.

Rounding out the world of Dare to Love Me, a sharp-tongued Bae Jong-ok (Longing for You) takes on the role of fashion master Camille Jang, a luxury brand CEO. As Yoon-bok’s grandfather, Sunwoo Jae-deok (The Real Has Come) plays the dignified Shin Su-geun, who is the head patriarch at the Sunsan village.

Also in a supporting role, Park Eun-seok’s (Penthouse) character is the two-faced and ambitious Lee Jun-ho. Presumably, he’ll be our big bad causing ruckus for our leads as the owner of a fancy traditional Korean restaurant in Sunsan village.

Directed by PD Jang Yang-ho with scripts by Park Yumi, KBS’s Dare to Love Me will be following Nothing Uncovered in the Monday-Tuesday slot, premiering next month on May 13.

So is it the new trend to have a character named Lee Jun-ho in every drama?

I remember Lee Joon-ho being the ML's name in Extraordinary Attorney Woo. But I can't remember the other dramas. Could you mention them, please? @midnight @elinor,

Can’t say I’m against this by all means. Catchy name, will remember for sure. Just unsure about the characterization that guess along with it in this particular drama - it seems a bit unfitting! πŸ€“πŸ˜‚

Uh, the real slim Lee Jun-ho can play a two-faced villain, and real well! Chief Kim!

THAT is a completely different matter, which I'm ready to argue on till the end of the world!

Seo Yul was NOT a villain, two-faced or otherwise. He was just... an ambitious brat! 😌

Joking aside,
He considers himself a hardcore villain in Chief Kim, so I make myself look silly every time I defend him! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Wae what!! 😳 Seo Yul was so not a villain - no, never, not. I'm willing to fight him over it if need be.

I will take both of them, thank you.

My reaction to L is the same as my reaction to Yoona. I have always liked him. He has a gentleness that really really apeals to me. But he has always gotten so much criticism on DB that I prefer to stay silent on anything regarding him.

I feel that for an artist to have survived in the industry for so long they have to have their heads screwed on right. There are so many many artists including Suho and N who I really Ike but they never get their due. 😳 Neither as artists nor much publicity / social media fame but have quietly and consistently been doing good work for many years. Obviously they have their limitations and cannot be compared to say Junho who is just a level apart but he too has *ahem* worked his butt off to reach where he has.

I still remember Yoona's singing in K-2. For the kind of role it was she was perfectly decent. While I haven't watched much (read hardly any) bts I remember your post on her last year and immediately felt that - of course to be in the industry for so long she has to be good.

While we all have our favorites it is important to acknowledge all artists, production and crew all of whom work really really hard to bring us our beloved dramas.

Seeing Byeon Woo Seok's newfound stardom I'm reminded of that quote - It takes 20 years to become an overnight sensation. 😊

Your comment reminded me of this interview:

https://youtu.be/374TStcj66A?feature=shared

This is an interview which I... honestly hate. There are so many things wrong with this interview, and it clearly showcases so many wrong things in this industry.

But I have watched it many many times, because it is fascinating to hear just how hard people like Namgoong Min and Junho work, and how much their hard work is underappreciated. Yes, even Junho is treated so condescendingly that it is shocking to watch.

Maybe it is the style of the show, I don't know, because I have seen two of the hosts in other shows and they were quite courteous and interesting. I don't know. Still, I think it is fascinating to watch, from an educational and research point of view.

@midnight Thank you for sharing the link. I have seen / read almost all 2PM members being derided for their acting skills (or alleged lack thereof) and it makes my blood boil. Off the top of my head Song Kang is a other one who's hard work gets not appreciation.
I think by the sheer dint of their hard work both Namkoong Min and Junho have now become untouchable and no one can dare treat them like this now but yes I agree it is a long and lonely road and their craft is not as appreciated even today as it should be. I remember the number of incredulous articles wondering how an idol could win a Daesang and I wondered how many of these writers actually saw The Red Sleeve. 😳
The bts that dramas release these days really make you appreciate how much behind-the-scenes work goes in filming.
At the end of episode 12 and the beginning of episode 13 of The Midnight Studio there is an extended (and highly emotional) scene of Joo Won and Kwon Nara shot against the dappled sunlight of the setting sun. Given the length of the scene and the considering how quickly the sun actually sets I'm sure they shot it for at least 7-10 days if not more. To maintain that same energy / emotions over so many days, to set up the shots it must have been so so very difficult and challenging. This kind of hard work gets easily disregarded and no one actually bothers to appreciate that these are real people working really hard and "acting" is not such a cakewalk.
This is the scene I'm talking about.

*sigh* long rant, which I don't usually do but this type of mistreatment makes me 🀬

Sooo.... it's looking more like we'll have a past life connection again. I'm not buying that it's just a coincidence with the names.

What is the provenance of the word β€˜candy’? It seems pejorative and condescending. Sigh.

Isn't it from the manga Candy Candy (Kyandi Kyandi) or the cartoon.
