I noticed the Hong sisters have a hot streak of finding some really gorgeous pretty boys that are relative newbies to the small screen and then giving them good characters to build their buzz. There was Jung Yong Hwa in You’re Beautiful as the perfect oppa, No Min Woo in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho as the hunter turned mentor, my baby boy Shin Won Ho in Big stealing the entire drama in one episode alone, and now the Hong sisters appear to have found Shin’s doppelganger to make a guest appearance in The Master’s Sun. An idol boy from the group Infinite with the stage name of L (real name Kim Myung Soo) will be playing So Ji Sub’s younger self in TMS. The role was initially offered to Park Hyung Sik of ZE:A but he ended up taking part in Heirs instead. It’s alright, at least the pretty boys are being kept in the same SBS family. L was apparently the second male lead in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, which is a drama I still plan to watch if I had more time in my life. These new stills of L show a teenage Jo Joong Won getting kidnapped and tied to chair. I’m sure his kidnapping will be used to explain why Joogun is the way he is as an adult (greedy and an asshole). I’m more curious about how the kidnapping will tie into why Taeyang can stop seeing ghosts whenever she touches him. Other than that being a totally contrived plot device to give the OTP lots of skinship opportunities. SBS also released new stills showing second female lead Kim Yoo Ri (known as Little Taeyang to Tae Gong Shil’s Big Taeyang in high school) in various chic and out-there fashion outfits. I like Kim Yoo Ri in Cheongdamdong Alice but here she might have a chance to do what So Yi Hyun did in CA and make her second female lead strong and understandable character. I think its a nice change of pace for Gong Hyo Jin to play a character that is quirky and the one with the “affliction” since she is usually the normal re-active one in her recent dramas where her leading men all had strong personalities and major issues, ranging from Jang Hyuk in Thank You to Lee Seon Kyun in Pasta to Cha Seung Won in Best Love. Time to let this girl shine on her own. TMS premieres in less than a day and I’m so excited it’s not even funny.
