Lots and lots of new stills are trickling out from the production of Padam Padam…The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats, aka the cable drama from lauded writer Noh Hee-kyung and featuring a high-profile main cast. And while Jung Woo-sung (Athena) and Han Ji-min (Cain and Abel) are the drama’s two headliners, it’s Kim Bum I’m staring at. Or rather, his newly grown-out mane of glory. That’s it: He should never cut his hair again. Rawr.
I love that his character, Kook-soo (who names their kid Noodles, seriously?) looks rakish and mischievous, but is described as guardian angel. Jung Woo-sung’s character Kang-chil may be half a generation older, but it appears Kook-soo’s got the street smarts. Kang-chil gets sent to the slammer on false murder charges, spending 16 years locked up, and it’s there that Kook-soo watches his back: “If it’s to help Kang-chil, Kook-soo will do whatever it takes to solve the problem.” All together now: Awww.
It’s Han Ji-min’s character who’s the selfish one of this main trio, which is a nice change for once, since it’s usually the heroine who’s guileless and winsome while the hero’s the immature/prickly/cold-hearted jerk. And given that description, I find it amusing that she’s the one posing with Bambi below. Ha.
I enjoy seeing another familiar face among the cast in drama veteran Na Mun-hee playing Jung Woo-sung’s mother. In these stills, she gets into a little tussle with one of the other ajummas when a disagreement escalates, and it’s Kang-chil who pulls them apart. Don’t mess with tough granny.
Padam Padam premieres on jTBC on December 5.
