Lee Tae Sung Steps in for the Injured Jae Hee in Hooray for Love

When the door closes for one person, its a chance for another to step into the void. Last week Jae Hee, who has been out of MS for over a year and finally picked his comeback project as the weekend drama Hooray for Love with Lee Bo Young, was injured on the set filming a windsurfing scene and had to bow out.

Disappointed doesn’t even describe how I feel, plus I’m worried worry about his health and recovery. Since the drama is already filming and needs to continue to make its early July premiere date, a leading man was quickly found. It’s none other than Lee Tae Sung, who I feel is such a underrated actor.

I first saw him in 9 Ends 2 Outs as the lunky baseball player, and he was a great second lead that delivered great chemistry but never had a chance to derail the OTP. He then did an about turn and went dark, evil, and maniacal in Time Between Dog and Wolf with my Junki. Finally, my adoration for him was sealed when he almost stole the show in Playful Kiss. His character and performance was just spot-on. I’m thrilled he’s getting his first big leading man role. I think it’s a great choice by the production team, and I foresee nice chemistry between him and Lee Bo Young.

  1. Still sad and worried about Jae Hee, but yay! I like Lee Tae Sung and after watching 9 Ends, 2 Outs, I was hoping he’d get a leading role. Good luck to him!

  2. im both happy and sad …. i was reaaly anticipating jae hee’s comeback drama but then ill just have to wait. lee tae sungs not bad and i hope this will be a big chance for him

  3. Oh, I’m worried about Jae Hee, too, but I’m also happy for LTS!

    BTW, if I disappear on you again, it’s not my fault. My computer is dying. Like, it wouldn’t boot today at all! ๐Ÿ™ After much praying, it started working again, but I’m afraid this is its last time before it goes to heaven (also yes, it heard me when I was praying hence it has a soul and so it’ll definitely go to computer heaven. Or something. OMG, what on earth am I saying?) Anyway, until I buy a new one, communication with me might be spotty jsyk. *clings to you*

  4. Really not a fan of his and LBY leaves me cold so this is going on my “miss” list. Darnit, Jae Hee, get better quick and come back with some other drama!

  5. WHAT?! LTS was in TBDW???? How did I miss this? Clearly I must rewatch TBDW.

    So glad he’s finally getting a leading role, because I just adored him in 9E2O and PK. I know nothing about Lee Bo-young, so I’ll have to give this a shot. LTS seems like the kind of person I’d like to know in real life.

  6. Being probably one of the only people on the planet who watched Romance Zero, I too am very excited for LTS. He’s such a sweetie, and I love watching him.

    • no dear you weren’t the only one…I didn’t love the drama but I loved him and the lead actress there…really excited that he gets his second lead role in what seems like a drama with more potential!!

  7. He is really cute in a variety show I watched and I was wondering why we don’t see enough of him. Looking forward to see how he does a broody type role because I only remember him as the goofy one.

  8. I was disappointed and sad too when Jae Hee got injured and has bail out of the drama… but now that Lee Tae Sung will take his place instead, I feel okay. ๐Ÿ™‚ I fell in love with Lee Tae Sung on 9 Ends 2 Outs that I want to get myself in the TV screen and be his partner instead. HAHA! XD This is a great chance for him! Finally he’ll be the leading man! ^^

  9. this drama sounds interesting…am gonna watch this for sure…yay! sorry to hear about jae hee i hope he recovers and will be able to star in another project soon. however, am excited about LTS. I always felt he was an awesome actor…

  10. awww man……despite the fact that I’m still mourning the loss my Jae Hee( to this drama, I mean)…I was just thinking this morning that it sure is a relief that at least I dont have to worry about adding one more drama to my agenda…..now I will have to check this out, so I can see Lee Tae Sung in what appears to be his first major leading role….It’s unfortunate that the drama has lost its second lead too though

  11. This is good news for me. It sucks that Jae Hee had to drop this drama because he got hurt, but I’m a bigger fan of Lee Tae Sung so…:D:D:D
    I loved him in 9E2O!
    I shipped the girl together with her best friend…and Lee Tae Sung for myself! hahaha

  12. so sorry to hear about Jae Hee. He’s one of the funniest and charming actors in K-drama land. Wishing him speedy recovery.
