What a cute teaser concept for Let’s Eat, the cutely named tvN romantic comedy series starring Lee Soo-kyung (I Summon You Gold) and Yoon Doo-joon (IRIS 2). (In Korean, the title is purposely misspelled to be slangy.) The show looks cute and bright, based on the previews, intermingling love and food with a nice dash of humor sprinkled in. It also happens to be right on-trend with foodie TV shows all the rage these days.
I was intrigued when I first learned of the show because it sounded like it would be taking a fresh approach to the drama format — the producers previously worked on the long-running cable series Rude Miss Young-ae, which mixed mockumentary styling with its (totally scripted) plots.Lee Soo-kyung plays a woman with a proud, confident air… until she’s in front of food and then all bets are off
To create a complete character, a writer, director, actor, and staff must think about every detail, starting from the clothes, gait, speech, and even to the hair.
In the quickly changing and over-saturated Korean entertainment industry, many actors feel the necessity to change their appearance to get into the character and to help the audience differentiate between the various roles the actor has played. In particular, the hairstyle plays an important role, often acting as a shorthand to describe a character, with curly hair representing an unruly, wild, and even comical personality, and straight hair representing a straight-laced and/or sophisticated character. The hair length often matters too, with the “sweet” heroine sporting long and soft hair, and the second female lead portraying an evil character with short and sleek hair
