When the door closes for one person, its a chance for another to step into the void. Last week Jae Hee, who has been out of MS for over a year and finally picked his comeback project as the weekend drama Hooray for Love with Lee Bo Young, was injured on the set filming a windsurfing scene and had to bow out.
Disappointed doesn’t even describe how I feel, plus I’m worried worry about his health and recovery. Since the drama is already filming and needs to continue to make its early July premiere date, a leading man was quickly found. It’s none other than Lee Tae Sung, who I feel is such a underrated actor.
I first saw him in 9 Ends 2 Outs as the lunky baseball player, and he was a great second lead that delivered great chemistry but never had a chance to derail the OTP. He then did an about turn and went dark, evil, and maniacal in Time Between Dog and Wolf with my Junki. Finally, my adoration for him was sealed when he almost stole the show in Playful Kiss. His character and performance was just spot-on. I’m thrilled he’s getting his first big leading man role. I think it’s a great choice by the production team, and I foresee nice chemistry between him and Lee Bo Young.
