Weekend drama Hooray For Love’s promo stills

MBC’s about to premiere a new weekend drama, Hooray For Love, which looks pretty cute if we’re going solely on the stills and promo shots that have been released.

This is the drama Jae Hee (Three Dads, One Mom) and Jung Seok-won (Dr. Champ) had both dropped out of, and stepping in to replace them are Lee Tae-sung (Playful Kiss) and Jin Yi-han (Fine Windy Day). I can’t say that I’m as interested in the replacements as I was with the original casting, but I pretty much like all four of them, so no complaints.

The drama’s presented as the success story of a woman named Jae-mi (Lee Bo-young) who divorces her loser husband (Jin Yi-han) and finds new love with the lawyer hired to invalidate their divorce (Lee Tae-sung). The main cast also splits into two love triangles, as you can see in the stills below; the above-mentioned trio comprise the main triangle, while Jae-mi’s parents’ generation finds themselves in another one, featuring Byun Jung-soo (Manny), Chun Ho-jin (City Hunter), and Bae Jong-ok (The World They Live In).

Byun is the new wife, Bae the ex with whom it looks like Chun has got some lingering feelings. Too bad he couldn’t keep it in his pants, then, since the divorce was a result of his cheating.

I anticipate some tension between our heroine and her stepmom, given that in real life the actresses are only five years apart in age. I can’t imagine Jae-mi would find it easy to call an unni-age woman her mother, yet there really aren’t any other options for her to use in the Korean language. (I suppose she could be super rude and insist on calling her “ma’am” or some such, but that would be the height of disrespect.)

Thanks to Dad’s infidelity and the trauma of breaking up her family, Jae-mi becomes skittish of men like her father, which unfortunately means smart and talented guys. Aw. She ends up marrying a guy who’s “obviously lacking to anyone with eyes” (ha), and I guess it’s no surprise that the union doesn’t last. Their wedding photos sure are cute, though.

I also anticipate that this adds another dimension of conflict to her relationship with Lee Tae-sung, who’s a smart and sharp lawyer who also happens to be a big ol’ playboy. (In the stills below, he gives a kiss to his girlfriend Seo In-young, who wants to marry him, and breaks up with her.) Good luck wooing the girl with a phobia of all smart guys and a heightened anxiety about the unfaithful ones.

Hooray For Love replaces Do You Hear My Heart? next weekend, airing its first episode on July 16.

Looks cute... though it still makes me sad to realize Can You Hear My Heart is ending. It'll have a tough spot to fill, that's for sure.

Huzzah, I loved this guy in Playful Kiss!

Is it just me, or does he look a lot like SHINee's MinHo in a lot of these stills? I thought it was him at first. :x

Thank god, Lee Tae Sung finally landed a hero role in a drama. I've grown liking to the man ever since i've seen him in 9 ends 2 out. He's got that very cute smile on his face. Im sure going to check this one out.

What infuriates me about the promos is that the girls look pretty lame, in comparison with the macho-pose of the men.

I just quickly googled this and it seems that this is going to be Seo In-young's first drama role. She's always so sassy and cool in reality shows. I mean, she clearly wore the pants in the Ant couple, and was the HBIC on Heroes (though I sorta gave that show up...) Her witch persona on WGM was so refreshing compared to the other pitch perfect ladies, except maybe Hwangbo, who's also in a different league. I wonder how SIY's character will deal with the break up in this drama. *prays for a playboy smackdown by the HBIC*

I have fallen in love with Lee Tae Sung's pose on the first pic XD I saw him in '9 end 2 outs' but there he was just a kid but now he has become a real hottie. While checking out his gestures I somehow recalled Park Shi Hoo. Does he resemble him or am I just hallucinating lol

Agree with everyone else who thinks Lee Tae-sung looks great here! Loved him in 9E2O and Playful Kiss.

But is that really Jin Yi-han? I never thought the slightly evil ajusshi from "Who Are You?" could look so geeky! :)

So Lee Tae Sung got Jae Hee's role, I assume he's the first male lead (probably he'll get LBY in the end) and Jin Yi Han is the 2nd male lead? Anyone can confirm? I badly want him to have a lead role.

1. I would not wear glasses on my wedding day, or in my wedding photos.
2. What's with that WAY awkward pose in the picture where the 2 guys are looking at the stiletto lady?

Although I enjoyed Lee Tae Sung in 9 ends 2 out, I think he is not as good as Jae Hee. I hope Jae Hee will get some big role! I miss him!!!

Loving Lee Tae Sung!!!!! Jin Yi Han looks funny in the wedding pic with the glasses and all..

The story sounds fun.. I'm guessing Tae Sung falls for her first.

Marking this one as filler drama. The thing you watch when you have caught up to the other 5-10 dramas you've been watching.

Oooooo Lee Tae-sung! He looks similar to SHINee's Choi Min-ho; they can pull off being celebrity siblings as shown on Soompi.

Seo In-young is cute but can she do something better w/ her hair? Like, her hair extensions are showing. LOL!

my fav drama since BOF and You're Beautiful!!! :)

i feel bad for jae-mi's dad, while i kinda wish that jae-mi's ex and his new wifey person would fall into a bottomless hole. :P

and also..... if jae mi and dong woo fall in love, and dong woo's sister and jae-mi's dad are already married..... that's just weird.
