I think acting is a combination of talent and hard work. Some have talent and don’t need to put in as much hard work, while others learn by sheer willpower and experience. A lot of young stars (be it idols-turned-actors or just actors) tend to headline projects when they are not yet ready to carry the entire weight. Which is why I love when young stars I adore get a chance to play a second lead in dramas or movies opposite heavyweight actors or actresses and learn from the best. Nothing beats watching the best at the craft in action. Despite having multiple headlining dramas under his belt, Yoon Si Yoon is returning to second lead territory in the upcoming Prime Minister and I and I couldn’t be happier. In Baker King Kim Tak Goo, Me Too Flower, and Flower Boy Next Door, he was good-to-great but still much room for improvement. He couldn’t have picked a better sunbae to work with than Lee Bum Soo, who play be playing the titular Prime Minister while Yoon Si Yoon is his aide. I expect lots and lots of bromance and together screen time for the two of them, I’m thinking along the lines of Kim Bum working with his respected sunbaes Jung Woo Sung in Padam Padam and Jo In Sung in That Winter, The Wind Blows. I am actually warming up to Yoona in the promos but I would love to see these two male characters develop a political friendship much like the one between the King Lee Seung Gi and his bodyguard Jo Jung Seok in The King 2 Hearts. I love Lee Bum Soo so so much and his first solo stills from Prime Minister have just been released and I’m simulataneously rawring and squeeing. I love his suited look which harkens back to his Giant days and his Lee Gang Mo is still my favorite Lee Bum Soo character ever.
