Girls’ Generation YoonA and Lee Bum Soo Reviewing Lead Roles in New Drama “Prime Minister and I”
Now this is some interesting casting news! Actor Lee Bum Soo and Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA are in talks to lead a new KBS drama “Prime Minister and I.”
“Prime Minister and I ,” to be written by Kim Eun Hee, is described as the Korean version of the famous story “Sound of Music.” It will follow the love story between a prime minister and a governess who in the past gave up her dream to become a musical actress.
This drama is being produced by SM C&C, the subsidiary of YoonA’s agency SM Entertainment, which might explains YoonA’s possible casting.
Lee Bum Soo’s reps have stated that the actor is merely reviewing the role; nothing has been decided yet. The actor is currently busy filming the movie “God’s Trick.”
Lee Bum Soo was born in 1970 and YoonA in 1990, meaning there is 20-year age gap between them if the casting happens. While the original “Sound of Music” story also depicts a large age-gap, what do you think guys? Too much? Or does age not matter as long as there is chemistry?
