Yay, Jo Jung Suk (The King 2 Hearts) is starring in his first leading role after stealing our hearts as awesome second lead. He is definitely a scene stealer and I wonder how great it will be to see him as the main hero 🙂 The drama is a weekend family one, called You’re The Best Lee Soon Shin. IU (Dream High) has been signed on to play the leading lady opposite him. This sounds like an odd pairing but definitely not weird. I’m totally looking forward to their chemistry as I liked IU in Dream High, but will have to see how she performs as the main lead here.
The show is about a single mother and her three daughters. IU plays the youngest daughter Soon Shin in the titular role, who is a bright, cheerful and courageous girl despite the difficult circumstances in her life. Jo Jung Suk will play Mr. Darcy aka a confident, cold, competitive agency head. But we all love those heroes, don’t we; even though we have seen them in almost every drama out there.
The middle daughter will be played by Yoo In Na (Queen In Hyun’s Man), named Yoo Shin, as a marketing executive who is good in everything. But at home, she is overshadowed being the middle one. Go Joo Won (Kim Soo Ro) has been cast opposite her as the next door neighbor, with whom she grew up. But he has a crush on IU and a bickering relationship with Yoo In Na’s character. Wow, I’m more interested in their love story. So.Cute. Son Tae Young (Two Wives) plays the eldest daughter Hye Shin, a warm-hearted and family loving person. Lee Ji Hoon (School 2013) has also joined the cast as Jo Jung Suk’s best friend. What!! That is simply great. The drama also stars veteran actors like Lee Mi Sook and Kim Gab Soo. Now tell me, can the cast get any better?
Except the simple plot, the whole thing about this show is so good. And if this has a lot of heart and warmth, I can enjoy the simplicity as well. You’re The Best, Lee Soon Shin premieres on March 9 on KBS after the rating king My Daughter Seo Young completes its run.
