Yoo In Na confirms casting in 'The Best Lee Soon Shin'


Article: Yoo In Na joins the cast of 'The Best Lee Soon Shin'... to work with best friend IU

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+614, -35] She must be pissedㅋ Her main career is an actress but she only got a supporting role ㅋㅋ while IU got a leading role just for being an idol;;;

2. [+434, -31] Another drama lost in the mountains... If they're going to use idols as leads in dramas, why do broadcast channels insist on holding open recruitment auditions for TV actors?

3. [+418, -24] Yoo In Na has never even played a leading role on public broadcast yet... I feel bad for her.

4. [+57, -5] This is basically like Yoo In Na singing on stage with IU as her backdancer

5. [+56, -6] They may say it's okay because they're best friends or whatever, but from an outsider's perspective, there's something clearly wrong with the situation. An actress is playing a supporting role while an idol with less acting experience is playing the leading role...

Article: Yoo In Na cast in 'The Best Lee Soon Shin'.... to play sisters with 'best friend' IU

Source: News 24 via Nate

1. [+80, -9] Are they sure they didn't switch the leading and supporting roles around?? Get your meds from a pharmacist, your acting from an actress.

2. [+54, -11] I'd understand Yoo In Na playing the role of Lee Soon Shin better than whatever this supporting role is. A real actress being pushed aside by a singer? I'll never understand this...

3. [+55, -12] They should've cast Shin Bong Sun if they needed a sister role for IU

  5. but it's not a public broadcast, queen in hyun's man is a tvn drama which is a cable channel, people have to pay if they want to have the channel on their television. public broadcast include MBC, SBS, and KBS.

  6. I agree, something is seriously wrong with this situation. After the amazing Queen in hyun's man I can't believe she's doing a supporting role to an idol.

  7. Well now I'm probably going to watch it because Yoo In Na is amazing in everything she has done so far...I'm hoping her character overrides Suzy's and has a better storyline...there are times when the supporting character get more love than the actual lead. Like SS, Song Joong Ki and Yo Ah In were more amusing then Micky and Park Min Young. They even won best couple award ^_^

  8. Can they just stop whining? They may whine for whenever however long they want but in the end they will still be watching this show.

  15. L O L at the idols' main roles these days. I'd feel a little cheated that my idol bff got a lead role over me.

  16. I think it's pretty stupid to label anyone the lead in a family drama since their is like a zillion characters. Unless its someone like Kim nam joo. But something is very wrong when you have yoo in ah an actual actress susposedly playing a supporting where u have an idol with one little side character to her name playing the lead....that's wrong on many diff levels also its also very wrong when your have only 6 months ago u have daesung winner Kim nam joo also playing a lead in the same time slot and 6 months later u have a nugu in the acting sphere playing the lead

  17. have you watch heroes? they're seriously look alike

But these pairings are trending look at.lee seung gi an suzy too... It may or not work... Ranting about it wont change a thing and u can still change th channel.if u are that disturbed by the casting...

  20. i agree with this netizen this time. no offence to IU but this is really unfair

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm kind of disappointed in the casting. IU deserves redemption after her scandal, but she doesn't deserve a lead role in a golden time-slot. Not yet. Even if she's didn't fare too badly in Dream High, her experience and her skills are nowhere on par with Yoo Inna's and Jo Jungsuk's. Besides, the age difference is weirding me out. I probably wouldn't care so much if IU were older, but she's barely an adult, and Jo Jungsuk's nearing his mid-30s. Yoo Inna is much closer to his age, and they'd probably look better together...

  22. Im wondering when can Yoo inNa get lead role in a public broadcast.. if Im not mistaken, this is her 2nd drama that she's a supporting role right??

    ReplyDelete
  23. its a weekend drama, many conflicts and characters

    who knows yoo in na's part might end up like ojakyo family, whose 2nd pair (ryu so young) is far more interesting than the main pair (joowon-uee)

  24. The lead role is a young girl who wants to be a singer. Thats IU. Not a 30 year old who has never sang before. Thats why you have someone cast people. If Yoo In NA wanted a lead role she would of had a better agent and/or chosen a different drama. Either way this won't be her last drama and shes with her bf and has a job right now. Get over it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I bet shes happy o have a job? Not IU's fault Yoo In Na didn't get another lead role after her last drama. Either way, Yoo In Na has been a lead before. She chose this drama idiot, its not like they forced her.

  26. If casting idols didn't work then they wouldn't do it. Its the career they chose. DEAL WITH IT BITCHES!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. No shit, its not IU's fault. Its the agents/companies/public that make this happen.

    ReplyDelete
  28. And your hate from virgin netizens.

    ReplyDelete
  29. IU chose a better career. Oh well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thats not what the plot ot the script says. Don't like then watch a different drama. :)

  31. “I am glad to take on this drama, and to be working with IU, who I know personally. The drama will give us a chance to hang out more,” Yoo In Na is quoted as saying.

  35. Why are people bitching so much about this? if Yoo In Na is truly a GREAT ACTRESS (Which I know she is) she will still be noticed for her great acting even whatever character she plays. No character is great nor too little as long as you do you character justice you will still get attention. And lastly the character completely fits IU which is a young girl trying hard to be a singer. Yoo In Na neither is a young girl nor a singer I'd consider your argument if it was Park Bo Young at least since she can look so young, has full of aegyo and lastly can SING...people who is butthurt about this situation needs to understand that the LEAD ACTRESS needs to sing... which IU can do . As a fan of IU I do know that she is still lacking in acting skills and if somebody was to ever get this lead role I still think it's IU or Park Bo Young for the character not Yoo In Na...

  36. i wanted to watch this drama for her but hell no i'm going to watch IU as the main lead =_= why they do not casted another actress as the female lead?? IU is too early....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sorry but yoo in na wanted to be a singer and she released a song.

    ReplyDelete
  38. yes, 2nd after the greatest love. She starred is so many dramas but jut got the role of best friend like Secret Garden, Birdie Buddy, high kick and my black mini dress.

  39. I just hope they could choose someone who could sing and ACT. I wasn't convinced with Dream High, just saying. There's plenty of idols out there who could pass as on actress. Reply 1997 being a perfect example.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hmm... I think the emphasis here is YOUNG girl

    ReplyDelete
  41. my goodness. why don't you watch first and then decide? if it's bad, then don't watch. you never know. the plot sounds like something that i can see iu in esp with her real life experience -> her desire to be a singer that had her trying out for numerous auditions, singing contests, etc before she was signed


    no need for all this negative responses. i always think that one should give it their all and see what the results are. after all, no one becomes an expert w/o experiences and how does one gain experience? why by doing of course. let the girl gain some more experiences. everyone seems to be a critic and they seem to think that they know better than the experts who actually cast the parts. let people do their job. they have more experience and they actually got to see the auditions unlike the netizens.

  42. yes Eunji could also be a great fit for the character and I also considered it at first BUT she is currently on a drama so it's either IU or Park Bo Young for me

    ReplyDelete
  43. There are plenty of actresses who can sing though. Plus we don't actually know if Yoo In Na can sing, we just know that singing isn't her main career. I actually agree with the netizens for once. I like IU and I actually think she might turn out to be a pretty good actress, but I think it's unfair for the idols to keep taking the leading roles away from the actors/actresses who have been training and waiting for their chance.
