Lee Hyun Jae of band Mate and Kim Min Seok from SuperstarK3 to star in drama Shut Up:Flower Boy Band

Lee Hyun Jae of band Mate continues his acting career.
Let's see some stills from the upcoming drama.

Cast and preview revealed for tvN’s Shut Up: Flower Boy Band:

Finally, the cast has been revealed for tvN’s new drama, Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, which is the second entry in its Oh! Boy series and replaces ramyun shop boys with rocker musicians. And while I was iffy on this show, I have to say I find the preview intriguing — it’s definitely got an interesting gritty vibe that I’m digging.

There’s been a name change from the previous Eye Candy, and while that’s probably an appropriate description, the new one does capture the flavor more accurately, it seems. And by flavor I mean bolder and more aggressive. But it looks like the older title isn’t entirely dead; the “Eye Candy” moniker is the name of the high school band at the drama’s center.

Actress Kim Ok Bin introduces her band with participation of talented musicians.

It looks like actress Kim Ok Bin decided to reverse the trend of musicians becoming actors by becoming a musician herself!
The star introduced her talented bandmates on a recent recording of her Mnet show, ‘Kim Ok Bin’s OK PUNK‘. One by one, she pointed out Kim Seulong of  the Toxic (the band that won 1st place on KBS‘s ’Top Band‘ competition), Lee Hyun Song, vocalist of the Koxx, Devin (the guitarist for Dr. Core 911), and Lee Tae San (the vocalist for GoGo Star).
In this band the Koxx' Lee Hyun Song will be responsible for guitar and vocals, Devin for guitar, Taesan for bass, and Toxic's Seulong for drums.

A crew member of ‘OK PUNK’ commented, “Kim Ok Bin, who has transformed into a rocker, and all her talented bandmates will inspire a new gust of rock music in Korea. We’d like it if you looked forward to the official start of Kim Ok Bin’s band promotions.”

Mnet's OK PUNK is going to show the process of forming punk rock band. 


Kim Ok Bin is known for her roles in the drama series ‘Over the Rainbow‘ and ‘Hanoi Bride‘, as well as her movie, ‘Thirst‘. Also she is girlfriend of rock band Schizo vocalist Huh Jae Hoon and you can hear her vocals in the Schizo's song "Forget About It".
