“Top Star Yoo Baek” will tell the story of a former idol and A-list actor who is banished to a remote island after causing some major trouble. The drama will follow Yoo Baek as he adapts to his new surroundings and eventually strikes up a romance with Oh Kang Soon, a woman who seems to have nothing in common with him.
Kim Ji Suk will be playing the role of narcissistic top star Yoo Baek. Though he has a confident personality and outstanding good looks, he is distrustful of people because of trauma he experienced at a young age. An idol-actor, he is successful in both singing and acting, earning the nickname of “Nation’s Melo Man.”
Jun So Min will be playing the role of Oh Kang Soon, a hardworking young woman who doesn’t care about anything aside from her studies, her work as a diver, or the supermarket she runs. Unlike the worldly and sophisticated Yoo Baek, Oh Kang Soon barely even knows how to use a cell phone.
Lee Sang Yeob will play the role of Choi Ma Dol, who is described as “the Jack Sparrow of ships.” Choi Ma Dol is the youngest person to become a captain. He’s an optimistic, friendly, and fun character, but is also strong-headed and charismatic.
“Top Star Yoo Baek” will be airing in November in tvN's new Friday drama slot after the conclusion of "Big Forest".

I'm so here for this, I really like all three of these actors and I'm excited for Kim Ji Suk to get another lead role after loving him in 20th Century Boy and Girl.
