Can’t Lose’s comic promo posters

Posters are out of MBC’s new rom-com Can’t Lose, featuring Choi Ji-woo and Yoon Sang-hyun as a couple mid-divorce. The posters are silly and cute, which is what I’m hoping of the drama itself — you know, lots of bickering-as-foreplay, lingering attraction despite the split, and fun misunderstandings.

If we’re to go off the posters, the drama is sure to deliver lots of glamorous outfits on Choi, while Yoon apparently must have one foot off the ground at all times. That’s gonna be a challenge, but an actor can’t shy from challenge if he wants to prove himself, right? Plus we’ve got a random athletic element at play, with fencing, arm-wrestling, and balance-beam gymnastics worked into one big mixed metaphor. Dueling, wrestling, teetering on precarious edges — got it.

Also: Is that Sung Dong-il, king of bizarro supporting characters, playing a judge? Climbing out of a painting?

It’s all very wacky, and I look forward to it. Can’t Lose will premiere on August 24, to follow current Wednesday-Thursday show You’ve Fallen For Me.

I'm excited how this drama would play out! I'm curious how Choi Ji-woo would be in a rom-com since I saw her in 1N2D. I can see the supporting being funny and wacky!!!

I'll be sad that You've Fallen for Me would end but what can I do when the drama next in line looks so good?

Weeeeee! It looks so much fun! I've been looking forward to a fun, wacky rom-com for a while and maybe this is my fix. I've never watched Choi Ji-woo act before, but Yoon Sang-hyun's over the top acting is sometimes my go-to fix on a lazy day. So yay! Bring on the bickering and fights and everything in between.

Yeah, that drama is over the top, but it does it well. JaeJoong is off most of the time, but he does the comedy pretty well. Overall, the cast has amazing chemistry and it's so funny. :) Ji Sung and Choi Kang Hee are incredibly adorable in it.

If I hadn't seen Choi Ji-woo in 1N2D, I would have never envisioned her in a rom/com - her image was just ingrained into melos. Stars Lover had a few light turns, but was still major melo for her.

It's amazing that all it took was one appearance on a popular reality show to totally turn around public perception of her - I wonder if that appearance gave her to courage to accept this role?

YSH is the perfect foil for her - his character is going to play her like a fiddle. I'm looking forward to this - I hope to see a bubbly bottle of effervescent champagne rom/com, complete with sparkly dialogue and romance!

This is a great comeback vehicle for Hallyu king Oska. As everybody knows, Oska's stock had fallen a lot after the controversy over news of his relationship with Yoon Seul. However, Oska superfan Gil Ra Im believes that this project will revive his profile in Japan as well as reconnect with his older fanbase.

Choi Ji Woo's settling into the Kim Nam Joo/Choi Jin Sil (RIP) "ajumma queen" phase of her career. Taking on the role of a semi-divorcee is a play for the older family-oriented audience that may not have identified with her work in the last 5 years. MBC has sort of turned their Wed-Thursday slot into their Hallyu drama slot. Ratings have not been that good in the slot (except for Gong Hyo Jin's shows), but almost every drama pitched here has been anchored by a Hallyu star/would-be star (same goes with youth drama Heartstrings.)

The pre-debut marketing and promotions for this drama seems very nicely sychronized and promoted as compared to the other dramas. Hope this effort will raise sufficient awareness and interest domestically and internationally for its first public appearance.

At the onset, the first impression i.e. packaging is really appealing, albeit anticipating an equally intriguing contents. I guess, the challenge is not so much with the ability of the actor and actress to execute the roles collectively, but more of the interludes, intricacy and quibbling conversations, bickering e-mails and bad-tempered SMS messages exchanges between the leads.

Hence, the challenge now is with the substance presented by the script writer to sustain and retain the audience. The popularity and chemistry between the leads can only carry thus far, if the substance is mediocre!! Just hope the substance is better than than its form, then we are really expecting to see an exploding synergy beyond the humor once presented by the infamous Kim Sam Soon!!

Honestly, I think this show is going to struggle breaking 11.0 in ratings. Wed/Thursday has not been a strong performing slot for MBC, and both Protecting the Boss and Princess Man are hitting 15s.

MBC's in general not having a good year. Their traditional Mon/Tues power slot has been owned all year by SBS's Mon/Tues, which has really taken over has shown one "Drama Crack" (My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Sign, 49 Days, City Hunter, Warrior Baek Dong Soo) show after another the past year. Just amazing. I don't remember SBS having a run like this ever.

Rating is very much depending on herd instinct, and the Korean audience for this drama (mostly middle-age aunties, I presume), has had a rather strange taste and quite unpredictable!!

Based on CJW's Star's Lover rating, I think she alone can achieve a rating of around 10 (without Korean F4 competition) based on her existing fan-based and some peripheral fans after watching 2D1N. As for YHS, he can perhaps help with another 2 to 3 points. Hence, we may still see something quite respectful, but below 15s for first two episodes.

After which, it is hard to gauge. It may surge or drop substantially depending on the ability of the script writer and PD to retain and sustain the viewership!!

Frankly, I do not quite like YHS. He is at best a butler and rock star material. As a lawyer, he lacks the professional look, despite his suit and brief case. Put it simply, he still look a blue collar worker with little intellectual ability and stature of a lawyer to me. It is more about a drama of an Uptown girl vs backstreet boy!!

The drama is likely to have CJW bullying and walloping him a lot, with some intermittent slapsticks from time to time. But, never knows, the Korean aunties may like it!!

"Based on CJW’s Star’s Lover rating, I think she alone can achieve a rating of around 10 (without Korean F4 competition) based on her existing fan-based and some peripheral fans after watching 2D1N."

I felt Star's Lover promotion was mismanaged a little. Promotion came sparsely, and it should have been moved to the SBS weekend drama slot (a la Secret Garden.) It's a shame too, because it was Choi Ji Woo's best performance in a drama.

It's a tough situation because, again, you already have two shows in the 15s, and the Wed/Thursday slot tends to command a smaller viewership than the Mon/Tuesday slot across all networks. MBC has tried programming ajumma-friendly stuff in this slot, to not much avail.

"Frankly, I do not quite like YHS."

I like the pairing a lot. Choi Ji Woo's chemistry with her leads is underrated. She's, next to Ha Ji Won, the most innately flirtacious of the big time women leads. Put her opposite a guy who can play "big" (Kwon Sang Woo, Lee Byung Heon), and you have a winning combo.

Press conference starts now. Still do not like YHS!!

Yeah.. I get the same vibe from YHS - of him playing "socially lower" people. But that's why I love him!

I keep trying to remember where I've seen him in (apart from Secret Garden and My Fair Lady) and why I love him so much. I thought maybe it's just the face and the subtle KimuTaku looks but then I remembered that he was in My Wife is a Superwoman and The Secret of Keu Keu Island lol. :D

Cant wait to watch this.

I'm not taking to Choi Ji Woo's hair color. Too much like YEH's reddish turn during Take Care of the Lady.

I prefer her having slightly darker hair color too. At certain angle, it shows than CJW is much older than her age, and a lot more elderly than YHS!!

In fact, I think GHJ looks better and younger at her age than CJW!!

It is best for CJW to get married after this drama!!

Not to sound pessimistic but this kind of plot is overused and it's so difficult to make the dialogue and script writing witty and going with a purpose. I hope this drama doesn't fall into "going in a circle" category. Having "fights" as the main plot is fine so long it has a purpose and doesn't defy logic and reasons. Having fights for the sake of fighting gets really really tiring very quickly.

Knowing the PD is the same PD for Great Expectations, I am super nervous. Great Expectations ain't funny and super boring.

Wow! CJW acts a bit over board as a fierce bossy/nagging wife? It is acting according to the script. But the script writer know the limit or the actress is too engrossed in her acting. It can make unrealistic. In real life a man can't take this kind of humiliation and bossiness from a wife just because she is a high handed person. True enough he is seeking for a divorce. In other words the script is working well.
Hope the ratings get 2 digits.
