New teaser poster and stills for Dangerous Meeting

I thought the first posters for the comedy Dangerous Meeting were cute, and these new stills show the same mix of cute and comical. It could just be that I find Lee Shi-young (Birth of the Rich) completely winsome — she’s got solid acting chops and a lot of charm — but I also think the plot has all the makings of a nutty screwball comedy.

Her co-star Song Sae-byuk (Bad Deal) plays the timid groom perfectly, and the movie bears a few similarities to Meet the Parents/Fockers when a couple gets engaged and finds their families strongly opposed to their match. It’s got an added twist, though, in that he adopts a fake persona in order to win over her parents.

Song plays Hyun-joon, a pure-hearted writer of soonjung manhwas (pure comics, or shojo manga). He meets Da-hong (Lee) initially as a penpal and the couple gradually falls in love, so when her father insists she must begin going on marriage dates, they decide to marry. But her father is a Gyeongsang Province man to the very core, and therefore Da-hong decides it’s necessary to hide the fact that Hyun-joon’s a Jeolla Province man, at all costs. (Consider the situation an extreme version of the Yankee-Southerner conflict, where regional differences create clashes that range from very minor to substantial.)

With that goal in mind, Hyun-joon undergoes training to cultivate his strong accent into that of cultured Seoul man, transforming himself into an Apgujung-dong native (Apgu being a trendy and upscale part of Seoul). The last hurdle is to visit Da-hong’s family in Busan, where she’s got a nosy aunt, an elegant mother from Seoul, and a fierce father whose form of greeting comes by throwing a baseball at him. On top of that, his brother follows him there, sent as a spy by his father.

This sounds hilarious, looks adorable, and I want in. The movie releases on March 31, and also stars Baek Yoon-shik (Hero), Kim Su-mi (Unstoppable Wedding), Park Chul-min (Return of Iljimae), Kim Jung-nan (President), and Jung Sung-hwa (Personal Taste).

I am SO excited for this movie to come out.
Looks like it'll be a good one.

And Lee Shiyoung is just so alluring for some reason. I really really adore her.

Waah! The trailer really makes me want to watch it! (Unlike other trailers that make you go ???)

But can someone transcribe the trailer's audio in english, please? Thanks!

(I'd call Santa but he'll probably make coal puns and give spoilers instead...)

Am I the only one who thinks that Kim Su-Mi (LOVE HER) is the korean version of Betty White (the cute grandma who swears) ?

I will watch this movie just for her ^_^

i have become a big fan of lee shi young's. i thought she was hysterical in "birth of the rich" and i liked her somewhat nuanced performance in "playful kiss." she is brimming with personality on "entertainment weekly." i hope this movie works out well for her (and us viewers!)

all the actors ?
i dunno about grandma...she s good at playing the villain granny oppressing the perfect cinderella in makjang dramas but i ve never liked her botox and plastic surgery OD...she looks like an alien to me...i feel like i m staring at a blow up doll that s deflating....

it s always bothered me to see movies where one of the actors (despite it being a supporting actor) is so obviously botoxed and surger-ied. somehow the movie/drama looses credibility and i can t enjoy it/watch it without thinking it s obviously fake...

Song Sae-Byuk looks so honestly clueless. Haha.
Think I'll be watching for the Dad and Son-in-law to be... they looked like the most interesting characters in the trailer.

I must be one of the only people who dislikes Lee Shi-young. I've just found her really annoying in everything I've seen her in and her voice just irks me for some reason.

This movie looks cute though. Maybe I'll be able to get my dislike of her to watch this.
