Lee Dong Wook – Lee Si Young Pair Up

Lee Dong Wook is on a roll! After a break from Scent of a Woman, he’s back with a new drama on KBS. The drama is called Wild Romance and he stars as a professional baseball player, Park Mu Yeol. Lee Si Young has been cast alongside him as a judo athlete-turned-bodyguard.

What the hell? Is this a mash up between Young Love Jae In/Man of Honor and City Hunter?!

The drama is supposedly a crazy comedy where the two start off hating each other. (Figures.) It seems like Lee Si Young’s character Yoo Eun Jae is Lee’s bodyguard too. The writer of Alone in Love Park Yeon Seon and the director of Infamous Chill Sisters Bae Kyung Soo team up for this rom-com.

I have doubts that this will be a hit. Something about it does not feel very special to me, and I can’t pinpoint exactly where. I feel like Lee Si Young will give off a bright performance like that of Park Min Young in City Hunter and Lee Dong Wook is just going to be moody and crabby. Maybe that’s because I keep thinking of Scent of a Woman. But in My Girl he was pretty serious too…

If he ends up being wildly crazy, then this might be interesting to watch out for.

The drama premieres after Young Love Jae In in January 2012.
