I can’t say this is the best drama cast around but it’s certainly worth checking out for Namgong Min finally getting a normal leading man role. Cameras are rolling for the next SBS weekend drama called The Beauty of the Beast (Beast’s Beauty), premiering on May 14th after Mrs. Cop 2. Unlike the PD and screenwriter’s last drama The Girl Who Sees Smells, which I adored despite the bipolar narrative of sweet and psychotic in equal measure, hopefully this one will stay true to it’s romantic drama roots as well as giving Namgong Min a role to shine that isn’t as a crazed killer. I was hoping his leading lady would be Baek Jin Hee but it’s a no go luring MBC‘s daughter over to SBS, so in the end the female lead goes to Minah of Girl’s Day. Joining the leads are Oh Joo Wan and Seo Hyo Rim to round out the cast.
I saw the teaser , it was just awful
Hi Koala~ FYI, it’s Namgoong, not Namgong. Feel free to delete this comment… I just wanted to give you a heads up. Thanks for the update.
Is Minah actually a better actress compared to Seo Hyo Rim?
It seems that Seo Hyo Rim will stuck in the second female lead territory in some more time.
i know right
I don’t know how I feel about Minah being the lead. To be honest, she is not lead actress worthy.
I honestly don’t know why they would cast a mediocre idol as lead and a talented actress 2 play second fiddle 2 the lead.I definately see a flop in the making
I will give it a try for Namgoong Min. For his sake, I hope it is good.
Rolling my eyes when i read Minah as the female lead.
not another idol female. she just going ruin the drama like that chick in Entertainer. arent that chick/this chick in the same group.
I don’t think she is as bad as all of you are saying. We may just wait and see without being so full of contempt.
” This chick” or the “mediocre idol” sound very offensive. It’s like reading translation from korean forum. Idols are not a sub human category, and the “chick” in Entertainer did very well in her last drama btw.
Actors (regular ones or idols) are not responsible for bad scenari, and weak direction.
Sometimes (I should say very often) there is nothing they can do, the project is to lame and poorly designed.
