The bickering romance begins in Playful Kiss

First stills are out of MBC’s new trendy drama Playful Kiss, which recently began shooting with its leads, Kim Hyun-joong and Jung So-min.

Although I think he looks a bit old for her, they do look cute together. Kim plays a cold, supercilious student — THE top student, in fact — at their high school, while Jung So-min looks pretty spot-on as the not-so-smart girl who has a crush on him. (Perhaps it’s because I really enjoy her spoiled princess act in Bad Guy, but I think she looks adorable even as she pouts sulkily.)

The drama’s first shoots took place on July 24 in a neighborhood in Seoul’s Seongbukdong. In this scene, the two characters (Seung-jo and Ha-ni) are bickering on their way to school, having already moved into the same house (her family temporarily moves in with his when her house is wrecked). Seung-jo doesn’t even want to act like they know each other at school and treats her coldly, to which she responds with sullenness.

Playful Kiss premieres on September 1.

Totally tuning out of this. I mean, I could do better watching paint dry, probably, than watch a rock try to act.

@ 2, I agree.

I'm kinda getting excited for this now~ I like the female lead, not so much Hyun Joong, but hey~ I say we let the drama speak for itself, wait till it comes out to cast judgements =)

it will be so disappointing if his acting hasn't improved! but is that too much to wish for? just remembering how dire it was in BBF is enough to make me cringe...

While, I'm looking forward to this drama, I am not looking forward to Kim Hyun joon's acting. Just based off of those stills, I am not impressed. He doesn't look cold, or even annoyed like you'd except from the character at that point, he's just a blank slate.

Oh well...

I kinda love that expression on JSM's face in the first picture....ha! And why do I feel a sickly cold feeling similar to seeing Ji Hoo Version 1.2 >_<
I will definitely check it out for JSM because I love her in Bad Guy.... heck, I may end up watching the whole thing with one eye closed against my better judgment ^^

There he is. Mr. Wooden. I can't wait to see the first video of it. I'm sure he'll impress us all with his great impersonation of a floor lamp. I really wish we'll all be proven wrong and that he suddenly became a great actor, but I wouldn't bet my lunch on it.

Is this a drama that's going to flash forward and age them a few years within the first couple of episodes? Otherwise, Kim Hyun Joong.... How Gabrielle Carteris of you. :P

@15 Shirls

Ahahahaha! That's a lovely way to put it. Although I think even the deer shows more emotion. At least surprise. His is more of a "just fell asleep with my eyes open" look.

not so keen on KHJ but I'm still gonna watch the drama just to see how it compares with the Taiwan version. Ariel Lin annoyed the heck out of me when I watched it years ago but Joe Cheng kept it interesting.

aiks. that's just what i'm afraid of.

when he looks at her, what is he trying to convey? that he's feeling a little softened towards her?

okay. i'm watching this just for the sake of the story and jung so min.

The Taiwanese version was a huge hit when it came out - it's regarded as one of the must-sees for Taiwanese drama addicts (though most Taiwanese dramas just don't do it for me at all and neither did this one, so I still don't understand what the hype was all about ~.~) Let's hope the Korean one doesn't let me down :D ~

This show is going to blow Jung So-min into the stratosphere.

The character played by Kim Hyun-joong is quite interesting in and of itself. If he can colour within the lines, he should be fine (at least he's got the emotionless bit down -- the character is basically a super-genius who is generally bored by all the high school blather going on about him) -- more important is the chemistry between the leads!

I think the reason they picked him is because he's so wooden. The character basically shows no emotion in the drama. Check out Joe Cheng in the Taiwanese one to see what I mean. They could flesh out the character if they wanted to, but it seems like they're not going to. We can always hope, though. And I agree JSM looks perfect for this part.

i think KHJ looks the part if you actually consider the manga. This is the first time I'm praising him. Hope he'll pull it off. :)

I loved the Taiwanese version of this drama - hopefully HJ can pull it off. I really liked him on WGM...but I think that's just his real personality. His acting chops are pretty bad - I couldn't even watch past episode four of BOF. Jung So Min can definitely pull it off tho - I hope they have chemistry!

Well... I'll say that the one thing KHJ has going for him in this drama is that he doesn't have to rock that HIDEOUS pumpkin colored hair he did in BOF.

And even though they're just stills, I feel no emotion from him. I really, really, really hope this doesn't suck.

Although I'm still not sold Kim Hyun-joong can pull this off, I'm still going to check out the first few episodes just because I loved the Taiwanese version so much and the anime was cute too.

oh my god i can believe your all talkin meanly about hyun joong oppa alreddy!!!! we his fans will always to support him and enjoy his drama. he has popularity all over asia and your all jealouse of his popularity because he has many fans and you are all alone and ugly and fat!!!!!!!!!

...............

*Blink* Whoa! Sorry, I just wanted to be on the bleeding edge in case this post blows up the way the last one did. Anyway, much as I disliked KHJ's fail acting in BOF, I've resolved to attempt not to prejudge this for now. I understand that a still photo does not always depict the emotion an actor is trying to convey (unless you're Kang Ji-hwan). I'm also cognizant of the fact that is character is a cold, emotionless sort who is bored and disengaged. So maybe he'll be better this time? And if he's not, well, (1) he's still really, really gorgeous and (2) Girlfriday has said she's recapping this -- and she shows no mercy. *rubs hands together in evil anticipation* :-P

so cute .< and i am so hapy with the girl's casting, she is adorable!

LOL @2 i kind of agree but... well, he's hot so whatever, i'm only looking for fluffy fun anyway haha. i think he tries to pull of enigmatic what with his disconnectedness but only really kind of just achieves...cute.

still, cute is cute.

I don't think this version will beat the Taiwanese version. The cast of this version needed more acting ability. Unlike this version, Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin are amazing and outstanding actor and actress. I really hope they will not ruin this favorite drama of mine. Please prove me wrong.

Okay, okay... I'm going to hope for the best in this drama.
I want to believe the Korean version can do better than the Taiwanese version, that one just didn't do it for me. Mostly because of the female lead so I hope they can portray her character as more likable in this one.

Just from the stills I already like her more. I'll refrain any opinion for KHJ since there's more than enough of that already going on.

PK fighting!

Oh, I am really excited for this, I love school dramas, I have no idea why but they always make me happy.
Please, please Kim Hyun Joong, don't suck as badly as you did in BBF.
I think Jung So Min is really good for this role, so I hope he can step up.
I think they look really ridiculously attractive together, but it looks like they got their hair died exactly the same colour.
Which is not cool in my opinion.
It's like, one step above couple tees.

Oh jeez, why is KHJ in this? I love him and everything (really, I do, he's so cute and randomly funny), but he really can't act >.< I'm hoping that he has improved since BOF, but judging from those stills, I doubt it. I mean, he's completely doing that blank I'm-so-tired-let-me-just-sleep-with-my-eyes-open expression of his already, so I've already lost faith in his acting.

I think I'll wait for some more summaries and see how JB responds to the drama. If people like it, then I might watch it, but I certainly won't try it without a recommendation.

I think KHJ fits the part in terms of how he looks, but his expression is not sharp enough, he looks dull and not like someone who you love to hate or want to root for. But, we'll have to wait and see. Who knows, we might be in for a surprise

She's ADORABLE as a girl student. It's refreshing to see actors/actresses in age-appropriate roles. Sometimes, a drama would be so good and convincing, but as soon as they do flashback scenes and use the same adult actors in a high school scene, it's like um, no...
