IU Will Star in “Beautiful Man” with Jang Geun Suk

Singer IU is taking on the role of a main character in a drama once again. 

She is currently preparing for her comeback in TV dramas with the new KBS miniseries, “Beautiful Man,” which will air mid-next month. One of the “Beautiful Man” production personnel said on StarIN – Edaily that “We have had many candidates for the role and had a meeting with the producers… Currently we are in the final stages of discussion with IU about the part.”

The role IU is discussing is that of the female lead, Kim Bo Tong, which means ‘normal.’ Just as her name suggests, she is an extremely normal, yet oddly lovable girl who has a crush on Dokgo Mate, the bastard child of MG Group. The actor for Dokgo Mate was decided early on as actor Jang Geun Suk. Actor Lee Jang Woo will be playing David Choi, who must fight Dokgo Mate for a spot in Bo Tong’s (IU’s) heart.

“Beautiful Man” is to follow up the current drama starring Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum, “Secret.” The drama that was originally going to be aired in November, “Generation of Youth,” got pushed back, and the “Beautiful Man” team is doing their best to get the casting for the drama finished up as soon as possible.  This drama will be written by a writer with previous experience dramatizing comics, Yoo Young Ah, with previous works such as “My Paparotti,” “Miracle in Cell No. 7,” “No Breathing,” etc.  Shooting for the first episode is scheduled to take place before the end of this month. 

IU’s first work in a drama was with KBS’s “Dream High,” where she played a student with immense talent, but no looks. Afterwards, she appeared in the KBS drama “You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin!” where she took on her first lead role and received many compliments for her portrayal of an aspiring actor.

When her role in “Beautiful Man” is finalized, this will be her third drama in which she portrays the exceptional out of an ordinary character.

Meanwhile, IU has recently released a new album, “Modern Times.” She is currently giving her all with promotions for the new album, which has been taking over the music charts.

IU! I'm so happy they accepted the role! 

JGS and IU are good actors in my opinion, but as to whether they have strong chemistry, I hope it will work out when the drama is aired~ I trust the producers for selecting IU! 

For those who don't like their pairing you should blame the director/producer who wanted to cast IU and not IU, okay?

I've noticed that KBS likes to hold on to their peeps if they can once they've had a hit.  They're probably first in line for any new drama.

Joo Won went from Baker King to Ojakgyo Brothers to getting a stint on 1N2D and Bridal Mask back to back..  Now he's back with Good Doctor.  All his dramas except one are with KBS.

UEE got her stint as a Music Bank MC while being a hit on Ojakgyo Brothers and landed Jeon Woo Chi as her next drama

Moon Chae Won went from Princess' Man to Nice Guy to Good Doctor

Now it's IU's turn.  What's interesting is that this will be JGS's third drama in a row with KBS when the last two dramas weren't hits in Korea.  They must have made a killing overseas.
