When I heard this news I let out a bloodcurdling screech. Yoon Si Yoon has been cast as the lead of an upcoming C-drama called Happy Noodle. Normally I’m all for K-actors heading overseas to make dramas in China or Taiwan. It’s never going to be a cinematic masterpiece, but it’s good for their careers and a welcome change of pace from the grueling K-drama production routine. There are very few actors I would abduct from the set of such a drama, but Yoon Si Yoon would be one of them. The reason? It’s a travesty, a cardinal sin against nature, to dub his voice. Yoon Si Yoon’s voice is…..incredible. It sends shivers down my spine and does weird fluttery things in my belly. I think I fell for his voice before I even noticed his face.
Co-starring will be Li Fei Er, who acted opposite Joe Cheng in the Tudou web drama Welcome Love. Happy Noodle will be about an aspiring noodle chef and his journey to success, which is all sorts of ironic considering Yoon Si Yoon got his big acting break starring in Baking King Kim Tak Gu about an aspiring baker. At this point I have to accept that Yoon Si Yoon must love flour. The drama is scheduled to start filming in May, with an eye towards broadcast by the end of the year. Word is there might be other K-actors joining the cast. If anyone needs a reminder of the velvety purr of Yoon Si Yoon’s speaking voice, check out a cut scene from Me Too, Flower! below.
