Thorn Birds teaser and stills

The first teaser for KBS’s upcoming Thorn Birds is out, and basically what I can tell from that is: tears, tears, and more tears. Seriously, that’s all there is. Crying, sobbing, weeping, the eye-sweats, call it what you like. All I know is: I’m pretty much out.

The teaser video’s narration tells us, “We’ll atone for that sin. I’m sorry…” I don’t know what she did, but I’m betting she cries about it. A lot.

Thorn Birds stars Han Hye-jin (Jejoongwon) and Kim Min-jung (Strike Love) and is touted as “the revival of well-made melodramas” whose teaser video takes “a teary concept to stir viewers’ emotions.” Yeah, we got that. But how ’bout a little less with the sad, and a little more with the story?

The drama’s main character (Han Hye-jin) is Seo Jung-eun, a woman who makes some extreme choices in pursuing her career in the film industry, starting out as an extra and working her way up to actress. Jung-eun grows up as a yearning child, not having any memory of her mother. Han described her character as pure and kind, a woman who knows that the prick of a thorn will hurt but endures it in order to fly (an analogy tied to the drama’s titular thorn bird).

She added, “At first, Jung-eun was so kind that it was frustrating for me to understand how a person could be like that, but I decided to open my mind as I acted. Actually, I have a ‘nice-girl complex’ too, where I have a hard time sleeping if I say something bad about another person, but she’s even more extreme than that, so while this drama airs I’ll have to live as a fool. [Laughs]”

The drama follows the process as she tries to “untangle the entwined fates of Jung-eun and Han Yoo-kyung [Kim Min-jung],” who plays a movie producer and director. The two women are old friends and also rivals, but the way they live their lives are polar opposites. While Jung-eun embraces those around her as she pursues her dream, Yoo-kyung pursues her ambition with mad determination.

Thorn Birds premieres on March 2 on KBS, which follows President. It also stars Joo Sang-wook (Giant), Seo Do-young (Yacha), and Kim Ha-eun (Chuno).

Pumpkin- When I saw the first line of this post, my thought was: must beat corny out of her - then I read the second line. :p

Yeah - you know how much I love Joo Sang Wook but even I admit this drama is too much for me. I held on, just a little part of me held on hoping it would have a little cute? Then I saw this trailer.

So here I go - sending Joo Sang Wook my love, but off the ship I jump.

Ooh, I have to admit, that other trailer is GOOD!! Not only was my interest piqued, it shot up! I'm not particularly fond of Joo Sangwook and Seo Doyoung, but I think the ladies can really knock them dead. This kinda reminds me of the modern version of All About Eve, except not as black and white as that.

I think what we saw in the 5min trailer was may be EP 1-4? Since Kim Min Jung's character will give birth to a baby girl, who will be played by a 5yr-old child actress, there likely will be a jump of about 5yrs somewhere.

Is it a weekday? Well then it must be time to watch something with Joo Sang-wook in it! Awww yeah.

The five minute promo is a good litmus test. Do you like people ready to pull each others hair out? Welcome aboard. Can you not stand hours of slapping? You might want to sit this one out.

I read somewhere that story is about:

Han Hye Jin's character is a orphan girl and her friend Kim Min Jung's character (so called friend) who is also an orphan; want to find each there mother along the way she / they meets Joo Sang Wook's character a director (If think) from a wealthy family and Hye Jin's character falls for him but only her friend steals him away from her after finding out he is rich..
so then she becomes pregnant and give birth to baby faking his name that she is Jung Eun (Hye Jin's character) and after find her mother and knowing she is poor and also her child father gives up his inheritance. She leaves her child with her mother never to see them both again.
But Jung Eun takes the baby as her own and pretends to mother that she is her daughter... Well the rest you can guess

*I think is not s bad story and hope it would be not boring*

I'm kind of going to watch a couple of episodes to see how I feel about it, but it does seem ridiculous and quite well, uncomfortable a watch.
Poor Joo Sang-wook doesn't seem to have a substantial enough role judging by the trailer, seems it's going to be all the women. Rawr!

But I feel obliged to watch for two reasons: Kim Min-jung and newcomer actress Jung Eun-byul. Who's nowhere in the trailers which I can't take as a good sign, it must mean her role will be teenie-weenie.

if you want to see more of Joo Sang Wook, do watch GIANT where he earned an SBS Award for his role (New Star Award and Best couple award with Hwang Hung Eum).

i finished watching the 60 episode Giant last Feb 25 just in time for my birthday... and felt really happy for his role and the show itself..

You know, I get super annoyed at how many kdrama characters look uber pretty when they're crying. How many people in this world can cry gracefully like that in real life when actually feeling like sh*t? *sigh* It doesn't make sense to me sometimes. Than again, I'd rather prefer the pretty tears than the overdone I'm-in-pain-right-now-and-that's-why-my-face-is-scrunched-up-like-this-in-uber-fakeness-and-I-hope-the-tears-will-persuade-you-the-viewers-to-believe-that-I'm-feeling-the-way-I'm-supposed-to-be-feeling crying. Pft. But those kiss pictures kind of look active. As in, the girl is doing her part, but dude looks like all he's doing is puckering up real good. XD

“the revival of well-made melodramas” ?

“a teary concept to stir viewers’ emotions"?

Crying, sobbing, weeping, the eye-sweats"?

“At first, Jung-eun was so kind that it was frustrating for me to understand how a person could be like that" ?

MEH. So allergic made.

And No, still not interested after watch 5min preview as suggested. Instead that make my "Meh"-ing stronger.

Why is there so much tears in KDrama? Everyone cries over everything. I think it's going overboard.

What a dry teaser (teeheehee, lol, sorry). Seriously though, what kind of teaser is that? Are they trying to make sure folks don't watch? I mean we pretty much know it's going to be a tear fest, but at least try to fool us.

GnG originally was supposed to release 3 teasers, with the one posted by javabeans as the first. In the end, GnG released the 1st teaser, followed by a short preview, then the full 5min preview (that you can find a link to in the comments), which likely only covered the first 2-3 episodes of the drama, because Kim Min Jung's character will give birth to a baby girl, who will be eventually portrayed by a 5-yr old child actress.

I kinda like it how it puts dramatic problems which frustrate the viewers but they are really pushing the button here. lol I really dislike her friend, ALOT!
