Actor Lee Sang-yi will show the responsible eldest son through “Youth of May.”
KBS2’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Youth of May” (written by Lee Kang, directed by Song Min-yeop, produced by Lee Dae-kyung) is a retro-human melodrama about Hee-tae (played by Lee Do-hyun) and Myung-hee (played by Ko Min-shi) who fell in love with each other like fate in the midst of the whirlpool of history in May 1980.
Lee Soo-chan, played by Lee Sang-yi, is a person who returns to his hometown after studying in France and runs a trading company with his father. He, who is devoted to business for the well-being of his family, is said to be entangled with Oh Man-seok (played by Hwang Ki-nam), the father of Lee Do-hyun (played by Hwang Hee-tae), which stimulates curiosity.
On the 22nd, Lee Sang-yi’s stills will be released, drawing attention. After checking the unidentified note, he checks the complexion of his younger sister Geum Sae-rok (played by Lee Soo-ryeon), and looks at his father Um Hyo-seop (played by Lee Chang-geun) with a nervous look. I wonder what the three people’s mood is like.
Lee Sang-yi expresses Lee Soo-chan with three keywords: “The eldest son,” “responsibility,” and “sacrifice,” making his story even more awaited. “It was so heartbreaking to play Soo-chan. There are moments when Soo-chan, who has been doing well in everything, feels there is nothing he can do.
“Youth of May” will portray him struggling to resolve the entangled relationships, so I wonder and look forward to how the drama will turn out,” he said, expressing his affection for the role and excitement for his first broadcast.
The production team of “Youth of May” said, “This time, Lee Sang-yi will show a serious and responsible appearance in the character he has shown so far.” “As the eldest son of the family, he cares about his family rather than his individual, and you can look forward to his acting, which expresses the emotions of the 80s as they are,” raising questions among prospective viewers.
Actor Lee Sang-eun’s passionate performance, which will capture various emotional lines in the intertwined stories of characters, can be seen in “Youth of May,” which will premiere at 9:30 p.m. on May 3.
