Lee Tae-sung and the boys in Playful Kiss

No guilty panties this time around, but there are some funky hairdos in these latest Playful Kiss promo photos. I know I’ve poked fun at Lee Tae-sung‘s coif before, but I’ll hand it to him: As long as he’s wearing it, at least he’s workin’ it.

Lee plays Bong Jun-gu, a simple-hearted guy who is loyal to main character Ha-ni (Jung So-min). As he’s from the south, he’ll employ a saturi accent, which is always a challenging prospect for an actor. Saturi from the Gyeongsang region, which is what his character speaks, is generally considered one of the more difficult types. To get as authentic and natural an accent as possible, Lee sought out actor Hwang Jung-min and Simon D of the group Supreme Team for help. He found it akin to learning a foreign language, but pledged that when Playful Kiss airs in September, he’ll be ready.

The character has a free-spirited and sly personality, which differs from Lee’s own quiet, calm one. He called his current character work “a new discovery of the Bong Jun-gu inside me.”

Playful Kiss premieres on September 1, following Road No. 1.

As for the photo below… let’s just say I half-expect the boys to bust out with snaps and twirls, singing, “Just play it cool boy… Crazy! Cool! Go! Go!”

Yeah, that's exactly how I feel about it. It reminds me a little of Grease, to be honest. I've read a little of the manga a while back and from what I remember, Lee Tae-sung's character was a littlle crazy(in a good way). Judging from the pics, it looks like he'll be able to run with it.

Check out the expression of the guy on the right side of Lee Tae-sung, he really looks very into it LOL.

I am really looking forward to watching this drama, Lee Tae-sung might just bring a new charm to the Kinosuke character and make up for the lack of emotion of Kim Hyun joon's character. And I am sure Jung So min will make her character likable as well. Atleast untill now I like her in the picture's. Anyhow I hope she will handle it diffrently from the way Ariel Lin did. She got so annoying that everytime she appeared in a scene I started pulling my hair out, untill I got no more hair and stopped watching the show.
After that I had to take 2 months leave of watching Asian drama's, just to put my scrambled brains back in order.

Looks like they are going to go closer to the manga for the imagery and costume design. I wonder if they will also stick to it for the story. Next thought is what they will do with the end of the story. Since the author died before it was finished, the other drama versions and the anime have been sort of making it up based on the notes the author left behind. SOoooo, what will they do? What will they do?

actually, iswak ended at the same place the manga did. the director said he wanted to pay tribute to the author and left the ending mostly unfinished. i wonder if they will do that for this one, or start going crazy with it like the anime.
his hair- first i thought jets, then i though greese, and then i noticed it looks like the title character in the musical bye bye birdie. i guess the quasi yankee look is pretty universal. really curious about how he plays his character.

I thought the anime was the one that was closest to the manga so far and the ending was also closest to the original notes. At least that is what the husband of the author has said.

I agree ISWAK(Taiwan) ended where the manga stopped, omitting the notes, but they changed some stuff to accommodate that. At any rate, I still wonder about this ending. What will be changed or added? Notes or no notes? or a non-ending like the Japanese drama version?

Almost 20yr old manga, still being discussed and used for dramas. Yeah Kaoru Tada! You still rule!

JB,,,
I have a question, since you're recapping Gumiho, are going to recap this series also?
Hahahaha, I'm a little bit afraid you're not going to recap this series...

PS: I wonder if you decide to recap this series, would it be like BOF and YB's days when your site down for a moment because of too much people clicked same link...

Hilarious last pict! Not familiar with the reference JB on your song, but this is the song that calls to mind 60's hairdo's and whipping out the pocket combs to work the 'do!

"Why this car is automatic
It's systematic
It's hydromatic
Why it's grease lightning"

I don't know but I feel too much "fakeness" through the stills. I hope they won't ruin the storyline by too much fake overracting.

Cute! Pompous and cute!

I can't think of anyone more suited to school LTS on being a school thug with a satoori accent than - the original flavor Busan boy himself, Jang Hyuk.

But even Jang Hyuk couldn't teach Han Ye Seul how to make Satoori not sound like a valley girl speaking Korean.

I'm ridiculous open-minded and happy to watch Playful Kiss.
