Yoo Yun Suk and Kang So Ra officially confirmed for upcoming Hong Sisters drama
First it was Kim Woo Bin, and then it was Rain, but now we can stop speculating on the male lead for the upcoming Hong Sisters drama Warm and Cozy (also titled Jeju Gatsby) because Yoo Yun Suk has officially accepted the role!
That's right, Team Chilbongi — you have our chance to see him in a leading drama role! He has been fairly picky since Answer Me 1994, turning down leading drama roles in favor of roles in films (like Royal Tailor with Park Shin Hye). Once he accepted, Kang So Ra also confirmed her participation as well. You can't blame her for waiting to see who her male lead was going to be!
Yoo Yun Suk might not be a massive star like Rain yet, but he definitely has the acting chops for the role. Anyone who can go from making me want to punch him in the teeth in Werewolf Boy to making me want to give him a big hug in Answer Me 1994 definitely has what it takes to be a Hong Sisters lead. I mean, I was Team Oppa, and I STILL adored this guy! Doesn't he also seem like a good fit with Kang So Ra?
In other casting news, B1A4's Jinyoung has been offered a supporting role in the series as a young man who works at Yoo Yeon Suk's restaurant. He hasn't officially accepted, but he is "positively considering" the role.
The series will air exclusively on DramaFever in May after Angry Mom concludes on MBC. You can sign up for new episode alerts HERE!
