Upcoming KBS 2TV weekend drama ‘You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin’ released its first 2 video teasers last weekend, raising much anticipation for it among viewers.

With light-hearted music playing in the background, IU makes an appearance in the teaser as Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe, and saying ‘My name is Lee Soon Shin’. She continues by narrating, “They say life is like a stage. There are joy, anger, despair, and happiness in life, let us continue to go on fighting.” The narration which appeared midst various scenes that were played out, left much anticipation among viewers as to how it will all come together when it airs.

Filming for ‘You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin’ is currently underway. IU and Jo Jung Suk who are leading the drama, have been noted for their passion and effort while filming, whilst also being the mood makers on the film set.

There was one particular scene where IU had to stick flyers on the streets. As the flyers weren’t stuck snugly, filming had to be redone over and over again. When the director shouted, “Cut,” to signal a NG, IU will immediately retract her steps and be in position to film the scene again. After several attempts, filming was finally completed successfully, and everyone clapped their hands to show their recognition for IU’s hard work.

Although Jo Jung Suk was able to fulfil what the director wanted, he himself wasn’t pleased, and asked for a retake, showing his professionalism. To dispel the nervousness of his co-actors, Jo Jung Suk would take to cracking jokes, and help to raise the mood levels. Jo Jung Suk is noted for his wit and passion in being the mood maker on the film set.

Both IU and Jo Jung Suk also lavished praise on each other when they met on the film set. IU expressed, “Many girls around me were really envious when it was said that I would be starring opposite Jo Jung Suk. Many of my female friends whom I am not close to, started contacting me.” Jo Jung Suk meanwhile said, “My family members say that I am a thief. My phone is also close to being paralysed. Lee Soon Shin is the best! IU is the best!

So how will their pairing be like in the drama’s storyline? Jo Jung Suk said, “Their romance story begins when they meet each other. It gives off a my daddy long legs vibe.” IU expressed, “We have a big age gap in real life, but I don’t feel that we have an age gap at all. We often crack jokes with one another, and also bicker in a childish manner at times. It’s like a love story between friends.” The both of them said in unison, “We don’t know how the romance will progress on in future, so we hope that everyone will continue to pay attention to us and the drama.”

The production company A-story expressed, “They have gotten close during filming, and will become a sweet fantasy-like pairing in the drama.”

‘You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin’ is a story about the hardships that Lee Soon Shin and her mother faces after the death of their father/husband.
