A promising drama can absolutely round up an incredible supporting cast, it needn’t just be the leads that actors and actresses only care to play. Also in such dramas the supporting roles have plenty of fodder to shine and perchance even steal the show. IU and Park Bo Gum are confirmed for an upcoming period drama which still doesn’t have an official title but the translation is Thank You for Your Hard Work in Jeju slang. It’s set in the 1950s and the two leads will be followed through until their 40-something characters much like the Answer Me series. The drama has now added Lee Jun Young as the second male lead and I am most pleased, he’s fantastic and always so easy to watch. He does need a true hit drama and this sounds like a great project to sign on.
A period slice-of-life helmed by My Mister/Misaeng director is totally up my alley. All of the main and supporting cast announced so far are great too. I also hope Junyoung gets more attention with this project because he is one of the idols who can ACT.
