Jung Woo-sung’s image transformation in Padam Padam

Yet more stills are out from Padam Padam: The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats, the upcoming cable drama starring Jung Woo-sung, who is the focus of this batch of images.

Jung plays Kang-chil, a man wrongly accused of murder who serves 16 years in prison, whose innocent nature is protected in part by his younger buddy and “guardian angel” Kook-soo (Kim Bum). Kang-chil at one point experiences a near-death experience, surviving thanks to a miracle. He falls in a “fateful love” with a woman described primarily as “selfish,” played by Han Ji-min. Due to his past, he’s awkward in the romance arena and turns shy around her, bringing out his innocent, cute nature, while also contrasting with his tough side. (See: tattoos and skill with mechanics.)

So that explains Jung’s clean-cut, aw-shucks appearance in the show. Yet I can’t help feeling that Jung’s character is starting to veer past “pure” and “good-hearted” and into simpleton territory, based on the way he’s depicted here. He’s supposed to be a good boy, not Forrest Gump. And the Dumb and Dumber hair certainly doesn’t help.

I feel like we’ve been hearing about this drama forever, with photo dumps occurring on a regular basis, and yet we don’t actually know any more about it. With a respected writer like Noh Hee-kyung (The World They Live In, Goodbye Solo, More Beautiful Than a Flower) penning scripts, you’d think they’d put a bit more emphasis on the story, but other than “fateful love between an innocent man, a selfish woman, protected by a guardian angel,” we’re not getting much. It’s all the same old. How ’bout some story with that story, hmm?

Padam Padam premieres on jTBC on December 5, and will run as a Monday-Tuesday drama.

Just watched that trailer. Lol at her giving the finger, and at Kim Bum's actual angel wings. Again, though, not given much more about the story.

Hmm... the way he's acted/depicted makes the character seem ... Rain Man. Or... I Am Sam.

And that's a strong veer from "pure" and "good-hearted" (even "simpleton") to a completely different side of the spectrum.

That 1st pic gives off a Jim Carrey vibe. Like from the Truman Show

Simpleton territory? Dumb and Dumber hairdo? LMAO!!! That about sums up JWS's looks here.... And here I was thinking (and trying to being politically correct about it) that look just doesn't do it for me...

[email protected] Dumb and Dumber..hilarious....

But what cracks me up more is the fact that the guy spend 16 yrs in the big house and his only tattoo is some tiny bird?!..LMAOOO!!....I was expecting some huge bad ass tattoo..

As for the story I don't get it either, but cable channel have very much surprise us all and nailed lately..so maybe this could be another win....

He does seem mentally handicapped both here and in the trailer. Forrest Gump 2: Prison Tales?

the trailer is giving me weird prediction that someone is gonna die by the end of this drama... the wings on Kim Bum (who BTW is looking SO GOOD) is funny, but I love the author and the actress so definitely putting this in my to-watch list!

Aww ... too bad it's in December ... I will not be able to follow it since I'm going back to my hometown which is a rural city with lame internet connection ... because up until now, I follow the latest drama via downloading.

I want to love Jung Woo-sung but honestly i can't feel symphatize for him in Sad Love and in The Good The Bad The Weird films.

I hope Jung Woosung can pull this off, and not make it a caricature.
Based on what I've seen of his acting so far, he always manages to make his characters really charming and with depth, so hopefully this is another case of "funny pictures, cracktastic drama"

Has anyone seen the j-drama Asuko March? I hope Jung Woosung's character is more Minami Keisuke's Go, than it is Cuba Gooding Jr's "Radio" :/

I'm so biased to Jung Woo-sung and Noh Hee-kyung that I would wait for the drama to air before I judge it. But I can't help but think that the character JWS gives off is that of Forrest Gump. But that picture where he was wearing a green shirt and look like a carpenter? It reminds me of his character in A Moment to Remember. So sexy.

Oh, the hair. The awful, awful hair on that beautiful man.

The clip/trailer is interesting.
Is it a drama?
Is it a comedy?
Is it a romance?
Is it a bromance? (fingers crossed)
Is it a fantasy?

What it had better NOT be is a hot mess.

I've watch this drama blip ever closer on the radar for months now, and I have to say I'm intrigued. But the trailer seemed a little mushy though (Thank you yluvs for the link!).

I agree with the questions Cynthia is asking - what's the tone going to be? Soppy melodrama? Quirky comedy? Feeling a little lost here.

I'm not a fan of all Noh Hee Kyung's dramas. She mostly failed to awe me with her script. They're just boring and the pace were kind of too slow for my liking, all in all they're not my cup of tea. & I'm not a big fan of melodrama either. :|
But since, I like all the actors in Padam Padam, might as well give it a try first, I hope at least it'll meet my expectation.

This seems kinda like a coming-of-age to me (I don't think the term only applies to teen-themed things).

The guy is in jail for 16 years, that's a lot of life down the drain. He'll probably have to re-discover himself and learn some new life lessons--including love (and friendship with Kim Bum?). So I'm expecting (HOPING) this drama has a bit of everything--laughs, and teary-eyed moments, and all that.

Kim Bum is looking so darn hot with the wings! I think Jung Woo Sung and Han Ji Min make an adorable couple.

Dec. 5, please come soon!

Not enough Kim Bum in this ^_^

None in the stills and only one frame in the teaser! Thought that frame does rock...

I love the fireworks love date pictures set. It's so cute and beautiful; yet, it also evokes sadness (they're madly in love but oblivious to the fact that there will be hardships and obstacles that will try to tear down their love for one another).

Regardless of the less summary given, I am still waiting for the drama to air. I just hope there will be a sub group that will kindly provide English Subtitles and maybe someone will also kindly do recaps for it.
