I don’t think in drama bucket list of things I want to see today, Lee Seon Kyun playing a high school student would be so far away from even remotely making the list. The Voice, who is a smexy 38 years old this year, nevertheless has the comedic chops to pull off a very very old student look if it’s played for laughs. Following on the heels of the first stills of female lead Lee Yeon Hee in the upcoming MBC Wed-Thurs drama Miss Korea, it’s time to take a look at our leading man. This may be the Winter of big age gap pairings with the more traditional leaning of older man and much younger woman, what with Lee Bum Soo and Yoona over at Prime Minister and I and now Lee Seon Kyun and Lee Yeon Hee here. I totally have no problem with it, and it’s funny because both Yoona and Lee Yeon Hee are SM Entertainment actresses so I wonder if there is a concerted effort on the part of SM to give their not-quite-critically-acclaimed-but-very-pretty ladies some much needed acting heft in the form of universally beloved acting talents like Lee Bum Soo and Lee Seon Kyun. If that’s the case, then I applaud their ingenuity and appreciate the return of more actors to acting. I actually think Lee Seon Kyun looks adorable here in a high school uniform, albeit in a manga way where it’s so absurd it’s funny. I wonder what kind of tone this drama will have? I’m hoping for a bit of dark comedy paired with nostalgic whimsy. This first stills are out of Lee Mi Sook playing the beauty queen maker who is famous for turning ladies into the potential pageant winners. I think her casting is brilliant especially since she was a former beauty queen, netting the Miss Popularity award at the Miss Lotte Pagent in 1978 which I’m assuming is the Korean equivalent of the Miss Congeniality award. Lee Mi Sook’s stills show her perfectly in character with the dreaded 90’s obvious lip liner look and tight French bun. I’m racking my brains and can’t come up with a K-drama dealing with a beauty pageant though there have been plenty of makeover themed dramas and movies in general. I hope this is good since I want a fun enjoyable drama to watch while MBC desperately needs a hit since Medical Top Team was such a big budget bust.
