Birdie Buddy’s teaser posters

Oh man, and I needed a laugh today. Official posters are out of golf drama Birdie Buddy, and, well, to put it frankly: They look just a little ridiculous. Oh, the one above featuring UEE (You’re Beautiful) doesn’t look too strange, but this scenario is what is oft-referred to in the Fug universe as a “scrolldown fug.” As in, you start out thinking, “Hm, not SO bad,” until you keep scrolling down to see increasing levels of ridiculousness.

Like, for example, Lee Yong-woo (Style) as a capoeira-practicing golfer in mid-swing sporting some awkward-looking dreadlocks. And then there’s Lee Da-hee (of Air City, not to be confused with Chuno‘s Lee Da-hae) posing with a golf club wearing a miniskirt and sequins.

In the drama, UEE plays the golfer from humble origins who grew up in the countryside of Gangwon-do. She contrasts with the upper-class golfing prodigy played by Lee Da-hee, who grew up privileged (hence the sparkly clothing?) and had access to all the best lessons and golf courses. (Oh, I bet Seo Ji-hye is thanking her lucky stars she dropped this one and opted instead for the epic sageuk Kim Suro.)

Birdie Buddy is currently in the midst of filming in Gangwon-do, and will air in the summer.

OMG. You hit the nail right on the head JB! I'm pretty sure the only korean guy who can pull off dreads is So Jisup... And maybe/hopefully these posters were aiming for the ridiculous? Otherwise they're just plain fug. LOL.

Lee Da Hee is really pretty. Too bad I'm still not interested. Good luck to them.

You're Beautiful posters were ridiculous as well so I'm not gonna let the quality of the poster bother me! And UEE is superb at acting despite the fact that she's a novice.

I think the photoshopper didn't like arms...check out Ue's left arm it's barely there, plus the chick on the bottom has a very twig like right arm as well. (& Yes those dreads look awful...like they were wigged ontop of his very short hair from Style xD...what ever happened to doing it with "edge"?)

Certainly no worse than what Venus Williams was wearing at the French Open.

You have a point. The YB poster of the actors like angels was what made me put off watching the drama until I had absolutely nothing to do months later. I ended up loving the show. But honestly, Birdie Buddy looks and sounds so...dumb. I have zero interest in it.

completely confident that this drama will not be successful (under the 15% margin) :

1) cheesy
2) based on golf
3) typical characters which strive for success/wealth
4) THE DREADLOCKS, totally kills any eyecanday...

Uh... does ANYBODY play golf wearing that? Even UEE, whose clothing is MOST normal, looks like she couldn't hit a golfball for her life.
This is ridiculous. I really have no interest in this drama... except for amusing posters(:

@16 sl: Oh, only the people in the wonderful world of K-dramas where as long as it's entertaining, expect anything to happen. But hey, some dramas need to be watched for it's entertainment values to have fun. Some dramas you can critique seriously, and others you hang on to have a blast poking fun at it's oh so obvious faults ;D

I hate bringing up other dramas and make ridiculous comparisons, but perhaps since I just watch Pro Golfer Hana, I'm praying this drama will be much different.

Oh, the photos look cheesy. But I love cheese.

...

Yeah, that was so......................

But seriously, it's been a while since we got a 100% LOL so-very-bad-yet-so-very-addicting drama. I'm leaving the door open for Birdie Buddy.

Even the Korean title is funny. Beo-di Beo-di doesn't sound much like Birdy Buddy, but it's so fun saying beo-di beo-dI~ It's weird, but when you say 10x..... heheh. (Ah, I'm such a weirdo).

Well... in Lee Yong-woo's defense. In the original comic, the guy did have some dreadlocks for hair. Maybe k-dramas should stop being based off goofy manwha/manga.

The dreads! I don't like dreads in general but these just look awful and terrible. Lee Da-hee's outfit isn't ugly, but isn't it inappropiate for golfing? Hmm, still wondering about this drama because I want to see UEE in a different role after watching You're Beautiful, but I won't keep my hopes too high.

I'm currently watching Japanese drama Pro Golfer Hana starring Kato Rosa, and as Biscuit has mentioned...Birdie Buddie seem to have a similar storyline with Pro Golfer Hana, where poor girl (Kato Rosa) with debt become a professional golfer to save her family pay off the debt and she had the strong love of her golf from her dad, and there's another girl (katase nana) who's rich and privileged who competes with her to be a pro golfer against her.

I hope its a bit different but then again, we'll just have to see how it turns out..

Thanks for posting!

HA. Haha. Hahahahahah.

So actually these posters look so hilarious I'm actually tempted to catch the premiere. I was looking forward to seeing UEE onscreen again anyway, this seems like a good opportunity. She looks quite cute here, actually, and I really enjoyed watching her in YB.

As for LYW and LDH...at first I thought he was wearing a fuzzy cap. I thought, why would anyone wear a fuzzy cap while golfing? But no, that's his hair. Oy.

LDH looks fine from head to waist until you catch a glimpse of the golf club. Which equates to WTF? Does not compute.

Anyway I'm looking forward to it. Shoot me, but I am.

Okay, not to make fun of Korean (it actually fascinates me a lot, grammar construction, characters, basically, I'm in love with it) but the title spelling in Korean has no difference. I just noticed it nao. Awesome.

But the posters and the dreadlocks? DNW.

They do realize there are dress codes on the green, right?

Who am I kidding. They thought dreadlocks on that guy look believable.

When will Korea ever do sports dramas justice?

what was the hairdresser thinking
it looks fugly
im sure when you have those dreads
every part of your hair looks ugly

he doesn't even look that part
even so ji sub could do a better looking model
anyway
does anyone think uee looks like a typical chinese girl in that photo
she has the round cheeks, big eyes etc etc
if i didn't know she was korean
i would have thought she was chinese or something
