FIRST LOOK: Yoo Yun Suk is dashingly handsome in first stills from Jeju Island Gatsby
The Hong Sisters have written some really memorable male leads in their time, and hopefully Yoo Yun Suk's character in the upcoming series Jeju Island Gatsy (also titled Warm and Cozy) will continue that tradition. We now have a first look at the character in new stills from the set, and we also get to see him alongside costar Kang So Ra in behind-the-scenes shots.
Jeju Island Gatsby follows a group of young people as they ditch their big city lives for the beautiful Jeju Island, where they build relationships — romantic and otherwise. You Yun Suk plays a young chef who moves to Jeju Island to open a restaurant. Take a look at the first stills:
As someone who hated Yoo Yun Suk with the fiery passion of a thousand suns in Werewolf Boy and then suddenly turned around and adored him in Answer Me 1994, I'm happy to see him looking sweet and chic rather than menacing.
Then we get these shots from the set, where, frankly, Yoo Yun Suk and Kang So Ra look so amazing together that I'm happy they didn't end up choosing any of the other leading men who initially considered the role.
