Media attention for Mary Stayed Out All Night’s fan-made posters

Every drama’s got its share of fan-made art, but the slew of posters for upcoming trendy drama Mary Stayed Out All Night have hit the big time. The Korean media is taking notice of fansites that have put together posters that not only look professional, but also parody other dramas and films.

Below you’ll notice nods to Cyrano Dating Agency (with misappropriated punctuation and all) and We Got Married, among others.

The production staff is particularly amazed at the posters’ marketability, including everything from staff credits, slogans, and premiere dates. Apparently I’m not the only one who mistook some of these for the real thing, as netizens were shocked to discover that they weren’t the official posters, and heaped praise on the dedicated fans.

Looks like there might be a big contender for 2010 Crack Drama of the Year, if buzz like this keeps up. Mary Stayed Out All Night premieres November 8 on KBS.

I love you, Jang Geun-seok, but seriously, in some of these posters it looks like the show stars two girls. You tread a delightfully fine line, my friend.

are you referring to the forth poster? the one w/ close ups of the four main characters?
cause that's actually a parody of Cyrano Agency and not Antique Bakery.

You know, to criticize my own poor word choice, saying "fooled" is kind of patronizing. These are clearly professional level designs. Whether these fans are doing this kind of work for a living or fun, they are fantastic! All of these artists should keep up the good work!

Whaattt...? According to dramawiki, they were born in the same year (albeit with a few months' difference). And MGY is a beautiful and talented actor, and so is JGS. They fit each other to the T.

Wow. Count me among the people who were fooled by the pink poster. I'm floored. A few of these posters are REALLY good. OMG if I think back of all the official (and many totally cheesy) posters we got to see, I almost want fans to turn into pros and get the new batches of official posters out. Heh.

I agree. I think KBS should hold a poster making contest, making the winning design part of the official batch. If fans produced this kind of quality work for fun, imagine what they can do with some incentives.

Is true!! xDDDD
Even in Wiki D-Addicts is the first poster on the tab xDD

It's sooooo beautiful, and the penultimate image also *_*
We see that both are from the same creators (same font, you know)

Sure that later, the official posters will be very ugly compared to these (suuuuuuuure xDDDDDDD)

Thanks for the post ^^
Always, your post are very interesting (and curious and funny like this), thanks for this ^^

these look cool! really, they can be used as the official ads for the drama. maybe some of the fans work in advertising because the layout of the posters are quite good. november, please do come soon!

Fanart always rocks. The production team should just team up with fans for one to let them design the promotion materials...and in return, maybe send them an autographed poster or sth. XP Creative marketing? It'll surely create a buzz, at least for trendy dramas like this.

sometimes, he looks like _such_ a girl. Where have all the manly men gone? Anyone else interested to see what JGS's image will be after he comes back from mandatory military service? (I'm not saying he's left yet, btw). Though not seeing him for that period of time is a huge trade off...and I like him the way he is! *fangirl sigh*

I do wonder that too, what he'd look like after serving in the military. Would he come back all manly or will his face remain pretty and clash with a manly body? Either way, I still support him!

Wish the posters had more Kim Jae-wook love!

i love these, but i want some official pics! plus, i flipped through pages of the manhwa - it's a recently published webcomic, so no scanlations yet :( - and it looks like the female lead has a more casual, tomboyish look, so MGY might not look this cute in the drama. depends on how closely the drama mirrors the original story. i really need to learn Korean, though - the manhwa looks really interesting :D

hahaha I was totally laughing by the time I got to the bottom of the page. JGS's hair was just way too long....and the wavy hair look...let's just say I am glad he doesn't have it anymore, not it looks bad or anything just that I don't that was the look he was going for...

yep.... i agree, JGS seriously could pass as a girl sometimes. but i wonder how he can beat his portrayal as hwang tae kyung in terms of making an impression... although granted, he almost never failed to make a character either memorable or endearing so i'll stay confident. and the posters are SO pretty... i'm quite impressed... reminds me of the KHJ movie posters... hehe. KHJ as johnny depp's alice... really?
and looking forward to a cheerful MGY gone awol for quite a while now.
what's up with 2010 and all these trendy dramas... i feel like i'm on constant crack the whole year...

these are pretty cute. now the production staff really needs to make awesome posters so that they don't get upstaged by these fans.

weren't some of lee junki's iljimae posters made by fans? i think there were some beautiful ones that actually overshadowed the official iljimae posters--unless i'm totally confused.

WOW :) But I have to agree with you on the "Jang Geun-seok looks almost female". Is it just me, or does it seem like he's got guyliner on? In every photo I see him in, looks like his eyes are really dark. Kinda creepy. I have to say, his long hair isn't doing him any favours either...

Sorry for any fans out there.

i actually kinda like his guy-liner too. It makes his eyes look like lion/cheetah eyes, don't they? and for some reason, it looks kinda cool to me. (though this isn't permission to move on to guy-polish, okay JGS? Even if Waffle Sun-ki does it, you must resist. RESIST! because as awesome as you are, it's hard to look at Waffle Sun-ki and say "he looks like a girl") Though I have to say that JGS would NOT make a pretty girl. He just wouldn't.

those posters look great! ppl sure can spot a hit! i mean come on the geun-geun couple in itself is epic casting...even if u give these two a crap script they'd make it work on sooo many levels! plus there is kim jae wook! and now the cherry on top the frreakin premise is sounds amazin'!! i so want to watch it NOW!!

This one has so much potential that it almost hurts. Here's hoping it lives up to it. Although, the Joseon Crack guys (and gals!) are gonna be hard to beat...

Exactly what I was thinking. I'm really anticipating this drama, but Joseon Crack is sooooo good and addictive in the best way possible. Also, MGIG was one of the best trendy dramas I've watched in a long time. Then again, I think it's a good thing Mary has such tough competition since it means more viewing pleasure for us fans. Boy, 2010 sure is turning out to be a great year for dramas.

me too. a sincere advice for her, I just hopes she reads this, hehe.

She has to add some weight, add some more fles. She has this incredibly big head and it doesn't go in proportion with her skinny body.

Her photos , the one taken during an awards night last year, looks photoshopped where you just take the head and paste it with someone else's body. It doesnt seem right.

She's cute and pretty but, its disturbing me.

Thank u very much.

I think, once awhile, there needs to be such competition worthwhile for fans to get involved and bring forth refreshing creativity for upcoming shows. Let the winner of such poster layouts get VIP access for premieres or fanmeet. Not a bad trade.

These fans totally deserve recognition. KOR-ent can show more benevolence.
