Actor Lee Si Eon shared the story behind the hit drama 'Reply 1997' during his appearance on 'Happy Together 3'.


Lee Si Eon revealed, "At first, I wasn't going to go on the drama because I heard the leads are Seo In Guk and Eunji. It was Seo In Guk's first drama and I didn't even know who Eunji was."

He continued, "I heard this recently but director Shin Won Ho said he wasn't going to cast me because I was unmannerly. At our first team dinner, I said to Seo In Guk, 'Are lead actors always this late?', and that made the director think about taking me out."


Lee Si Eon also shared, "Seo In Guk told me that he thinks our drama will do well but I looked down on him and said 'You wouldn't know because you've never done dramas'."

    When casting news went out, people were doubtful because some idols in kdramas were really duds in acting so you can't blame them. But a few episodes after, Eunji and In Guk proved they are good actors. To this day, Reply 1997 is one of my fave kdrama.

    No matter how bad his statement was, it's reality tho. Many rookie actors don't have a chance to shine because roles that should go to them are handed out to idols to boost ratings. Okay, some idols are great actors (example: 2PM's JunHo on Chief Kim, UEE of Afterschool and many more), but many are just there because they are pretty/ handsome and have many fans. I can name idols who don't know how to act, they can improve if they are just given acting workshops instead of just throwing them on every next available drama.

    It must be tough for idols or any rookie to face these kind of seniors.

    He still shouldnt have had a grudge on them just because they were actor rookies.

    Si eon is actually a good actor too. He was just saying that that was what has happened before. I guess there may be a part of this story that would have been omitted to make it look negative. (just my opinion) and i salute him for openly admitting how he thought badly about his co-stars , and i hope he really did admit that he is wrong. cause some would openly say only positive words about these popular idol-turned-actor/actress to suck on them...

    That´s why one should close his/her mouth and wait till they see, instead of be so prejudiced and act like a completely jackass. BTW, see how amazing life can be, Seo In Guk is such an excellent actor... he should be proud to have worked with such a talented actor.

    hmm, i don't think it's totally misplaced, especially with idols. there are far more idol actors who can't act than those who can.

    umm........ i think your reading comprehension is quite off... i never cursed you. "bitch about" is slang for complaining. I said people should see them act first and complain after if they are bad because they are often looking down on them even before they see them act. But yeah thanks,i am going to report your comment.
