I’m seriously waiting for the third shoe to drop with Lee Bum Soo. He’s one of the most capable and hard working leading men in the Korean acting world, easily disappearing into any role without a trace and making it memorable and scene-stealing. He’s taller onscreen than his height because of his presence and charisma. So it’s with disbelief and sadness to watch him squander his talents on two of the worst dramas to come out of Korea in years, first with Time Slip Dr. Jin, followed by IRIS 2. I almost want to call it selling out, but then he does such a fantastic job in those turd dramas it’s hard-pressed to say he phoned it in. He’s clearly earnest and sincere in every acting gig he takes, so why keep taking dramas that have TURKEY written all over it from the get go? Bad news comes in threes so I’m actually geared up for him to pick another terrible drama and then perhaps he’ll get the bad drama itch out of his system. Then he can go back to rocking my world, like he did in On Air, Giant, and History of the Salaryman. He’s been married since 2010 to Lee Yoon Jin, a somewhat famous in her own right as the English tutor to Rain (she’s also a newspaper columnist and English translator). I love that he likes brainy girls, and their marriage has produced an adorable precious little girl that is two years old now. Lee Yoon Jin posted family pictures recently showing the family at the coffee shop and out playing in the snow. Their baby girl is beyond cute, and Lee Bum Soo looks like a doting playful father. With the recent spate of new K-ent couples admitting to dating, and some couples tying the knot, looks like settling down to a happy married life is in the air.
