    I dont consider him to be extraoridinary handsome, apart fom when he's is appearing in sageuk drama's. The old traditional clothes suit him so well

    Thanks for the info! There are still more than one month to go, I guess I'll just have to wait, haha. I don't know how to feel about this pairing though, I hope they work well together.

    IKR? I'm so excited for this drama, I'm such a big fan of the original Chinese series! I think they will do just fine together.

    Maybe my mistake maybe translation misunderstanding but isn't the word greed used for bad situations? Otherwise yess IU brings up her best in everything and surprises the audience

    I think he's teasing her by saying that she's greedy but his real intent is saying that she's ambitious and does well in everything :-)

    Well yeah maybe but since iu is already getting tons of hate from ppl with all different kinds of accusations I think it was smarter not to tease her in this situation. But well yeah probably he was just joking

    I think these misunderstanding tends to happen with direct/literal translations because the connotative meaning doesn't get expressed or gets lost in the process. Also, depending on the context and emphasis, a word can be interpreted differently. In this case, I agree with jackie_ah that he's just teasing her. He's using greedy in a light-hearted manner; the way you would when teasing a friend. Ambitious might be a better term because it doesn't carry any negative connotations but at the same time it doesn't express the playfulness in the original statement.

    I think that was misinterpreted the meaning from Korean to English. IU's fan translated the word as Ambition and not greedy. This is the translation that gave @IUteamstarcandy in twitter: If I were to describe her, I would say Lee Jieun is Miss. Am.bi.tion! She wants to excel in music and she wants to excel in acting too. She's passionate and wants to do well in both, so she's working really hard and doing a good job too. Miss. Am.bi.tion! Lee Jieun is Miss. Am.bi.tion!

    IU is greedy that's why she's perfect for this role; juggling the hearts of so many handsome princes

    Losing weight over 12 kg for the drama at the request of the director, because he wanted his face look more angular.
