Lee Jang Woo confirmed as a leading man for MBC ‘I Do, I Do’

Let me just repost Dramabeans’ article, coz I like it :lol:
And people, before starting acting all pess and everything, just think about it –
his FIRST REALLY REAL LEAD ROLE!!!! :D And with A-class star!!!!


Kim Sun-ah and Lee Jang-woo for I Do, I Do

Kim Sun-ah has confirmed that she will be headlining upcoming MBC romantic-comedy drama I Do, I Do, which is great news for dramaland. The story seems tailor-made for her: top-dog female executive has a one-night stand with bright-eyed, bushy-tailed new hire, and she gets knocked up (because don’tcha know — that’s the only outcome of one-night stands in dramaland, SIGH) leading to an unlikely romance. Her not-quite-white-knight, noona-loving hero will be played by Lee Jang-woo (Man of Honor, We Got Married).

Considering that a substantial age gap is the point of this pairing, I can see the potential in casting Lee Jang-woo. He was pretty much the only not-entirely-crappy thing about Man of Honor, and he fits the man-boy profile to a tee. She’ll out-act him, but her character is designed to outshine him, which will help.

Kim Sun-ah will play Hwang Ji-an, a thirtysomething top shoe designer, who commands the attention of a room and always looks impeccable. At work, she’s basically described as The Devil Wears Prada‘s version of a boss, which means of course that her life will come crashing down to earth off her self-made pedestal, when she takes her first left turn from The Life Plan by sleeping with the rookie. The hero, Park Tae-kang, is a naive but ambitious new hire at the company, who’s got nothing but a high school diploma and a good work ethic to his name.

The hijinks should be a-plenty, since you’ve got so many reversals in one premise–age, power, gender. I’m really looking forward to Kim’s return to funny since last year’s Scent of a Woman, which sure, gave her a chance to stretch her weepy chops, but I think comedy is where she really shines. The drama’s goal is described as trying to break the drama stereotype that all thirtysomething women have screwy lives and need to be rescued by princes on white horses in order to be happy. YES PLEASE.

Directing is PD Kang Dae-sun (My Princess) and writing is Jo Jung-hwa. I Do, I Do is slated for a late-May premiere on MBC, following The King 2 Hearts.

Kim Sun Ah to Romance Lee Jang Woo in New Rom-Com Drama

Earlier today, representatives of MBC’s upcoming drama “I Do I Do” confirmed that it has casted Kim Sun Ahand Lee Jang Woo as its main leads.

Kim Sun Ah will play Hwang Ji Ahn, the best designer at a footwear company who has the complete package of brains, beauty, and talent. Not only is she good at her work, she’s also fashionable and cultured. Lee Jang Woo will play Park Tae Kang, a walking disaster. While he used to copy designs from well-known brands, he gets accepted as a new recruit at Hwang Ji Ahn’s company.

“I Do I Do” hopes to break the accepted social norm in kdramas of a thirty-something year old female protagonist in need of saving (aka marriage) by a young, wealthy prince. The romantic-comedy will premiere on MBC sometime this May, following Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won’s “The King 2hearts.”

    Maybe this will be his break-through like MNIKSS for Hyun-bin?! Kim sun-ah will push him to his acting limits and further and it will only do him good for his big career ahead ^^
    I am very proud that he got this role, Jang-woo fighting!!!

  12. also, guys! it’s so nice to read comments on Dramabeans! oh god, whole time I lived with the thought that Jangwoo is hated by many (actually only by some T-ara fans) but now I can see that people are actually excited to see him next to Kim Sun Ah, ah!!

    please, please, scripwriter and director, do a good job! it’s gonna be good drama!
