“Beautiful Man” is slated to begin airing on November 20, and Hoon will play Kim Dae Shik, the younger brother of female protagonist Kim Bo Tong (played by IU). His character description sounds like he’s set to provide some comic relief for the drama.
The official “Beautiful Man” website explains the character of Kim Dae Shik as being a hot-blooded young man with unexplainable feelings of rage and hatred towards the world. He’s always angry about something, and even when opening doors, he does it suddenly. Dae Shik definitely does not understand the inner workings of his sister’s mind, as she fawns over Dokko Ma Te (Jang Geun Suk), but he himself has a unique psyche on par with that of his older sister’s. Apparently he is always dressed in a white martial arts uniform, with colorful sashes to match the time, place and occasion. He sounds like Bo Tong’s brother all right!
“Beautiful Man” is the story of Dokko Ma Te, a man with a face that could be considered a national treasure, and a fiendish character. He is tasked to steal the hearts of the top 10 successful women in Korea, and in doing so, develops into a truly “beautiful man.”
IU, Jang Geun Suk, Lee Jang Woo, and Han Chae Young also co-star in the drama, which airs on SBS on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10:00 PM (KST).
