Baby-Faced Beauty’s super cute trailer

The trailer for KBS’s upcoming Baby-Faced Beauty is out, and it’s really pretty adorable. Not that I was expecting it to be bad, but I just expected more of the usual trendy type stuff, not something quite so quirky and refreshing.

In case you need a refresher: Baby-Faced Beauty is about a 34-year-old woman who looks a decade younger, gets fired from her old job because of her true age, and gets hired at a new, better job where she meets her love interests (one is a CEO boss, the other a younger guy with the opposite issue, as he looks older than his relatively young years) and pursues her dream of being a fashion designer. But wouldn’tcha know, her rival in business AND in love happens to be a beautiful young woman who’s already a designer. Funny how Fate likes to mess with us.

Take a look at the preview for the drama, which follows Monday-Tuesday drama Crime Squad, and premieres May 2:

The captions read:

Jang Nara: “Absolute baby face, old maid, Lee So-young (34 years old)”

 
Daniel Choi: “Old-faced MD, Choi Jin-wook, has just met his worst enemy (27 years old)”

 
Ryu Jin: “Cold-hearted, chic CEO Seung-il (35 years old)”

 
Kim Min-seo: “Single-minded designer Yoon Seo (26 years old)”

Uh-oh.

This throws me into the throes of indecision: Baby-Faced Beauty is airing directly against Lie To Me, which stars Yoon Eun-hye and Kang Ji-hwan, two stars for whom I have a great amount of affection, and boasts an equally familiar-but-potentially-hilarious-and-adorable rom-com premise. Thanks to the internet I don’t have to choose which one to watch…but I do have to choose which gets recap duty. What to do??

Do the playful kiss/ gumiho thing again... After the first two episodes of both, hold another vote to decide which recaps come first.

Oh jb and gf, you have no idea how many English speakers depend on your recaps/ratings to pick their own drama fixes :D

I picked #3 only cause I wasn't quite down with #1 or #2. I want to pick Lie to Me cause who can freaking resist a KJH and YEH match up!! but I don't think BFB will suck so I didn't pick 1. LOL I wanna watch both but if I have to pick LTM all the way. Well, I'm a little nervous to be looking forward to these dramas cause I'm afraid I'll get disappointed. Better to start with some lower expectations (at least for now).

Like someone else said I think its maybe an idea to recap the first 2 eps of both (though sometimes dramas start slow and get better, or the opposite, start good and become slow). Alternatively ask a guest write to do one.
I am more excited about Lie to Me because I am a massive Yoon Eun Hye fan and KHJ is pretty cute. I was initially put off Baby-Faced Beauty because Jang Nara is in it, I originally saw her in Successful Story of a Bright Girl and really did not like her acting. But I am giving this a chance because it looks cute (and because of Ryo Jin) in the hopes that she has improved. So yeah, if I REALLY had to choose Lie to Me ^^.... that was long winded ne? :P

I would choose option 3 too. Like what you did with PK and MGIAG, you and GF could do alternately with Lie to Me and Baby faced, then same with 49 days and Best Love. The rest, I'm sure Kaedejun and aberden_angus will be happy to recap one or 2 dramas. And it's nice to see the other guest recappers(calling recappers of Tamra) to take the other drama.

Or Ockoala could collaborate with DB to lessen the load.

Sorry JB and GF, I'm too greedy. But when I think of it, I still love you both more and want you to get enough sleep and stay healthy and have your RL so I will be happy if you recap Lie to me and finish 49 days. Then do rest later. But it's really up to you. Just don't pressure yourself too much beyond your limit.

I know the month of May is going to be C-R-A-Z-Y!!! I feel like voting for "Duh! Stop sleeping".. haha.. but as a blogger myself, it's indeed hard to joggle two recaps.. and in this one LIE TO ME simply has my heart already..

hahaha I love the options!! and yeah, when give us options like that, you're asking us to be unrealistic >_> LOL
But I will probably love recaps of Lie to Me cause I love both actors immensely. Not to familiar with the actors in this, even though the plot sounds fun...I will watch :D

Maybe whichever one doesn't get picked, you could do every 5th episode or a 'checking in with...' type recap, like you've done in the past.

Just a thought...

I think this calls for a beacon to be activated that calls for all interested guest recappers. And another idea JB and GF why not have any willing takers handle the actual episodes *AND* you guys could do occasional "what we thought" posts on the ones you're not actively recapping but wish to comment on?

Personally, it's all about the drama that you love so if Baby faced beauty isn't ur cup of tea, then skip to Lie To ME! If I'm not interested, then I certainly can't continue on to watch and thus definitely can't write recap too!

Love the poll! Lie To Me sounds like it is going to be crack. I feel like Baby-faced Beauty will be enjoyable but not cracktastic (even if it has Jang Nara) - like something you can wait for an empty weekend to watch it all in one go.

Sigh, I really want you to recap both,but you have to sleep! Just a question: you are going to continue recapping 49 days, you are going to recap Best Love, Baby Face Beauty or Lie to me, City Hunter and Ripley?!
If you do this, not only your monday/Tuesday are going to be insane, your whole week is going to be.(You two have to sleep!)
I think you´re not going to recap Manny (maybe a post like the one on Sunday will be good, if you feel like it). Im not interested in Ripley, but that´s just me and City Hunter...i feel is going to sink in the first episodes. Lee Min-ho is like my fourth korean love, but the change from lascivious womanizer private investigator to a sort of bodyguard...i dont know, i have a bad feeling about this drama.
I have no solution. Im more familiarized with Yoon Eun Hye, but i want to watch both equally. So, its up to you.
(If you decide to not sleep, i´ll be very glad to send you coffee! from Chiapas and Veracruz, maybe you would like to try them, if you havent do it.)

KIM MIN SEO! I really loved her in Sungkyunkwan Scandal! She has this screen presence(?) that's unexplainable. I don't know, when she appears you'll just be captivated by her. She has that charm.

From being an extra then playing supporting characters and now a she 2nd female lead! A nice transition in her career! Soon enough I hope she'll star on a good drama! LOVE her!!

reading all these, one can see that in 99% of people minds Lie to me is a hit before even airing..or even a trailer..lol
Baby-Faced could be the best written acted drama in the last ten years and that well make no difference, Lie to me well still win out.
For those that may not like Yoon Eun-hye you can now see why she gets the big $ her name makes a show a hit even before it made.
Jang Nara..I really have no understanding why she seems such a joke to so many here. Her ten years of achievements and overcoming hardships speak for themselves, name me five others who have done or could do what she has done with the setbacks she has had over the years.

I love 'Lie to Me but I've already known the OTP.

Baby-faced it's kind of omo omo what JB will have a say on this? Plus, DC has really good comic timing that intrigues me, what will he bring on this show?

I mean you've recapped KJH and YEH before. Something new, something challenging would be nice. Let's check first two eps first and see how we all feel about it.

I didn't see the result, it keeps saying L-L-loading. Or may be it crashed?LOL.

Poring over manuals now to make a JBGF superclone. Clone will be part JB, part GF, recap at amazing superspeed, produce fresh recaps every hour nonstop every single day, will not need sleep. When clone shows signs of slowing down, quickly flash blow-up pics of six packs Scheduler, Kang-ah, Hand Towel and PSH. Clone will immediately pick up speed and self-energise in seconds, and recap at breakneck speed henceforth. However, drooling may result so be sure to wipe off drool from clone's mouth to prevent malfunction.

Ultimately, I think you should watch both of their first 2 episodes and based on that, make your own decision on which you would enjoy recapping more or you'd think has more meat in the story.
But I think you'll be choosing Lie To Me anyway. Lol.

from the moment i heard/read abt the premise of Lie To Me, the thing that screams in my head is 'meh cliche overload!!!' well, haven't really watch it to judge, but that's what the plot suggest, so i have 0 interest in that drama. but hey, you're the one to recap. n i bet the majority's gonna support that drama anyway....

I like some of the suggestions offered by earlier commenters.

Offering a vote for which drama to be recapped after reviewing the first three episodes of the shows seems fair enough.

Although, another option could be to have a guest recapper do one of the dramas (because my greed knows no bounds!).

Personally, at this point, I'm leaning toward Baby Faced Beauty, on account of my disfavor toward contract-marriage story-lines, since they tend to devolve into convoluted, derisive ploys and mishaps.

Then again, I am a bit weary of happy-go-lucky not-really-everywoman who must contend with multiple love-interests and catty competitors.

At any rate, I am so looking forward to the packed-full May season of Dramaland~ :D

I think Lie to me is getting more votes because of Yoon Eun Hye's star power. But honestly, she's not that great of an actress and we haven't seen Baby face's actress in a while. See? I can't even remember her name. I hope you recap baby face, cus I wanna hear your comments about the acting in that show.

second mini trailer
I say it again. be it successful story of a bright girl or my love patzzi, both where made nine years ago!. Jang Nara a totally different actress after all that time. Its as if her spending six years in China some kind of time warp
{to keep up the sc fi theme] for many of you. Still seeing her as a rookie 20 years old and not a mature 30 years old with almost a dozen TV dramas to her name. Some among them being the highest rated in either Korea or China.
Ow she to be on Happy Together 28th and I been told her Sky and ocean to show Friday on Tv I guess in korea.

Yeay long live Javabeans and the 4th dimension.
