Group Demands “Lee Soon Shin is The Best” to Be Banned

KBS' newest drama “Lee Soon Shin is The Best” is in hot waters. It was revealed on March 11th, that global youth group “DN” has ask Seoul Central District Court to ban the drama. “DN” states that the reason for their request, is the misuse of the name “Lee Soon Shin.” Yi Sun Sin was a naval commander, who fought against the Japanese army in the Imjin war. The commander is really respected historical figure and he is seem as national hero. He has his own statue and he is printed in the 100 won bill. “DN” states that “the commander's image will be damaged, because of the character of “Lee Soon Sin” which is played by singer IU, is weak, and fragile. The commander was someone known for strength, success, and victory.” They also said that when your search the name of “Lee Soon Shin” on Naver (Korea’s version of Google), which is Korea's most used search engine, UI will come up instead of commander Yi Sun Sin. They are concerned that the younger generation around the world, who still don't know about the commander, will get confused with the character of the drama and the commander. KBS stated that it wasn’t their intention to make fun, damage, or offend the commander's name.

Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
