Welp, get ready for a wild and slinging comments section lol. With the news that Song Joong Ki will be the male lead of the K-drama adaptation of revenge novel The Youngest Son of Sunyoung (Korean title is The Chaebol’s Youngest Son), of course all eyes are on who will be the female lead. The novel has actually very little scenes of the female lead, she goes to college with the male lead and they end up dating and married and she helps him with his conquest of the chaebol family succession but all of the romance and character development is zilch between them. I’m getting horrible flashbacks to East of Eden where everyone tuned in for the love line between leads Song Seung Heon and Lee Da Hae and NOTHING HAPPENED and she ended up walking a dog before being shipped off to America and he ended up with a side female character played by Lee Yeon Hee. Sorry for the rant but goodness clearly I still have EoE PSTD. *shivers* Anyhoo, the casting rumor mill at DC Inside and other credible insider sources are all saying that Suzy will be the female lead, and I’m half lol-ing and half totally fine with it. Until the day Suzy is not popular whatsoever in South Korea she will continue to be cast, girl brings in eyeballs to dramas and moolah to CFs. Is she a good actress? Better than when she started out and better with each drama, if you ask me, but she was so so bad that even now she’s still nowehere near the same league as actual good actresses. In this case, let’s hope for sizzling onscreen chemistry and a character she can excel at.
