Lee Yoo Bi becomes the female lead for 'The Scholar Who Walks the Night'


Ilgan Sports - Naver: TSWWTN held first script reading last weekend... Lee Jun Ki and Lee Yoo Bin are confirmed 

1. [+2392, -166] Lee Jun Ki is a good actor but he has to carry the weight of the other three.. 'Joseon Gunman' was flawless.. Sigh

2. [+1974, -46] Then, what role is Kim So Eun playing?

3. [+1802, -284] What is Changmin doing here..?

4. [+1848, -389] Isn't the female lead suppose to be Kim So Eun?? This is hilarious. Why Lee Yoo Bi?? This is seriously hilarious. --

5. [+1151, -57] I really like Lee Jun Ki!! 'Time Between Dog and Wolf' and 'Two Weeks' are masterpieces!!

6. [+376, -54] They should've given the lead role to Kim So Eun. I don't see Lee Yoo Bi in it

7. [+352, -61] She doesn't fit the lead role. Why not Kim So Eun?? She's good with sageuk dramas--

8. [+305, -36] I was really excited for this because of Lee Jun Ki. But Lee Yoo Bi is the female lead and not Kim So Eun?? Terrible casting

9. [+286, -44] Just when I thought they've made Kim So Eun the female lead and I was getting excited but what the heck is this commotion with Lee Yoo Bi again?ㅜㅜㅜ Kim So Eun is 100X better. It's still early on, so they should switch them

10. [+262, -26] Lee Yoo Bi got this thanks to her mom.. ㅋㅋ

11. [+223, -40] The casting.. Looks like I won't be so attached to this drama after all

Better Lee Yoobi than Jin Seyeon. The one that I have problem with among the four is Changmin >< The guy is adorable but he's not really a good actor. Here hoping him proving me wrong later.

Lily said...

Lee Yoobi's still good as an actress, and I hope that she proves the netizens wrong when her drama premieres.

Anyway Joseon Gunman had Nam Sang Mi who was not very good at sageuk acting either, I think she's better than NSM even tho NSM is the senior actress.

Lily said...

yeah, three out of four can act, Yoobi is not the problem here....Kim So Eun is going to have to act for two if she is really cast as Changmin's love interest like some reports said.

This is probably one of the most confusing casting I've seen.. lol..

Haeyoung said...

How unfortunate. I honestly don't think LYB was the better choice over KSE so I totally agree with the knetz. Plus that pairing... Ehhhhh

anonymous said...

Nam sang mi is a good actress though . I just don't think her vocalization is suited for Sageuks though

mia said...

Nam Sang Mi is a good actress, just that joseon gunman is her first saeguk

shopslove said...

I prefer LeeYoo Bi than Kim So Eun anyway. She took lots of supporting roles already

goldenmellow said...

This drama sounds like Gu Family Book, but Yoobi is playing Suzy's role instead of Chung Jo

Lily said...

Still better than Suzy though, even if that's a very low standard to compare her too. And she was a total rookie then, it was only like her second drama.

I actually think LYB is better in sageuks, she suits the serious kind of roles more than the aegyo roles like Pinocchio. I saw her in Royal Tailor, she had a small part but quite good.

Lily said...

I found her vocalization and expressions so painful. The role should have gone to a younger actress, her mannerisms and body language seemed really lacking.

Lily said...

Yeah in her modern dramas she's decent, but in Joseon Gunman she just did not fit the role well at all.

And Shin Min Ah first ever sageuk was Arang & the Magistrate which was also with Lee Jun Ki. Her acting on the other hand was natural and good, and she had great chemistry with LJK.

Lily said...

And this time her father is again a disgraced nobleman just like Chung Jo, so it'll be like a mix of the two heroine stories in GFB.

i want to give this a chance because at least this girl can act.

bell said...

just when can she act the lead role if you guys keep saying she is not fit for it yet?

Alisson said...

Lee Yoobi? She was good for roles such a cute dongsaeng or cute girl. But as a female lead, while Kim Soeun as the second lead? Their acting skill totally diffferent, different level. Especially for historical drama. And Changmin, he is a good singer but not actor. Another blood future?

noNama said...

There are some instances when those who play supporting roles receive huge critical acclaim and much love from the viewers. Who knows, KSE might be one of them :)

the saso said...

Just take out joongki from the drama fuck it i dont want him in a historical drama im bored comeback with a drama like 2 weeks or time ah ㅠㅠ my oppa always have to carry the hobaies actor/actress why dont put him with A actress/actors

Both Lee Yoo Bi and Kim So Eun have big shoes to fill. Lee Yoo Bi has to prove that she's better than expected and worthy of lead roles whilst Kim So Eun has to deliver or raise the bar of her acting since knets are pushing her as the better actress. If either actress fails, things could get ugly.
