Gong Hyo-jin’s Love Fiction releases trailer and posters
by | January 2, 2012 | 36 Comments

The new romantic comedy film Love Fiction starring Gong Hyo-jin (Best Love) and Ha Jung-woo (The Client) is getting ready to premiere in February, and has released posters and a teaser trailer. It looks so cute, and I can’t wait to see their adorable chemistry in action. The movie’s being touted as a “Male Bridget Jones,” which doesn’t sound at all like a bad thing. The story tracks the hero’s bumbling journey through modern dating, which turns out to be a lot harder than he thought.

His character is a novelist, a sometimes-vegetarian, and sensitive guy, who cannot be cool about love for the life of him. Gong Hyo-jin plays a confident careerwoman who is cool about all things, especially dating. The rom-com is described as a very frank and funny look at how guys deal with the ins and outs of a relationship, from confessing his feelings to figuring out how to deal with waning attraction. I love the idea, and have faith in the pair of actors to deliver on both the funny and the drama.

The posters feature a disgruntled pair of leads, each shouting the other’s (real) name. Gong Hyo-jin’s poster: “Ha Jung-woo, you used to hang onto me begging for me to date you… have you gone crazy?” Ha Jung-woo’s: “Gong Hyo-jin, I’m the crazy guy for proposing to you!” The teaser counts all the times the couple has met, slept together, fought, and cried, and all the kisses that have smoothed things over along the way. The writing promises to be realistic and funny, so I can’t wait to see if it delivers.

Love Fiction premieres this February.

    Looks so cute! And I love Gong Hyo-Jin’s styling – it really suits her!

  3. Ani

    I love the sneer of utter disdain on her face in the last poster. Hahaha.

      Me too. It’s perfect.

      Hah, I was thinking the exact same thing.

      I think this might be my rom-com for Spring πŸ™‚

    Gong Hyo Jin : I don’t know why, i can perfectly picture her as a man eater or a cougar alpha female. She looks so comfortable in her shoes / boots and flashy lipstick.

    Yes! I just started watching H.I.T. and am utterly in love with Ha Jung-woo (I liked him a lot in The Chaser too even if he was the creepiest creep since creeping was invented), so I will definitely be on the lookout for this. And why didn’t anyone ever think to make a male Bridget Jones before this?

    Want to see this:) Thanks GF for the heads up!

    omg must – see! they’re both the bees’ knees. ha jung-woo’s whipping up quite a versatile career. here’s hoping he’ll be korea’s answer to asano tadanobu:P

    I always enjoy her acting! Never seen him in anything though. Looking forward to it!

    This looks way cute and funny. I want to watch it right now πŸ™‚

    How can I (a non-Korean speaker) go about seeing this (and other Korean films for that matter)?

    And response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • 12.1 mellowyel provides movie downloads with English subtitles – that’s where I get most of my Korean movies. you’ll have to wait a while though – if it comes out in February they probably won’t have the film with subs until summer.

    • 12.2 debbie

      I’m guessing that you would probably know this if it helped you/you lived in the area but in LA’s koreatown there are a couple of theatres that show new korean movies with english subtitles. One is called mpark or something and the other one is cgv.

    Bwhahaha, This trailer look so great & funny ~ Ohh, I like that Gong Hyo Jin look very pretty with her cute haircut, yuuupppsss. πŸ™‚ They both are having much fun-fun chemistry together.

  14. 14 Raitei

    This looks really promising. I’m not sure if Ha Jung Woo really resembles a male Bridget Jones, but the posters and the trailer definitely make him, and Gong Hyo Jin, look really cute and simply perfect.

    I’m loving Gong Hyo-Jin as a strong, confident woman. If she can make it through this film without any of that desperate, whining aegyo that I had to endure in Pasta or Best Love, I’ll give her a standing ovation.

  16. 16 Eeefu

    Is that Ji Jin Hee (the church scene photo)?

    • 16.1 deeko

      I was just thinking the same thing. He’s so adorable to me. This looks promising…

  17. 17 Joy

    Haha love the premise of this. Side note: lovin’ all the different kinds of short hair Gong Hyo Jin sports.

  18. 18 Sisa

    aww, the trailer looks amazing, even if i can’t understand a word of it.

  19. 19 Porcelain

    Ha Jung Woo looks so squishable… never thought I said that about a guy who was in The Chaser…

    And I basically loves Gong Hyo-jin in everything…

    This looks really fun!

  20. 20 jessie

    They are label-mates, aren’t they? I love fantagiogroup <3 Gong Hyo Jin, Ha Jung Woo, Ji Jin Hee, Jung Il Woo, Kim So Eun, Yoon Seung ah…. great stars~~~

  21. 21 girlatsea

    I loveeeee Gong Hyo-jin. Ugh, she’s so perfect. And I don’t believe that I’ve seen Ha Jung-woo in anything before but he looks absolutely adorkable in this.

    I guess it will be a while until it hits the internet but I cannot wait.

  22. 22 leonardswench

    Oh, JOMO, I can smell you falling in love with HJW all over again! He looks to be adorkable ….

  23. 23 pistachione

    The plot is not unique at all. But, it’s GHJ!
    How can I resist?! hehehe

  24. 24 bananasplit

    Ha Jung Woo – awesome
    Gong Hyo Jin – awesome
    Together – effin awesome.

    Been a big fan of HJW since The Chaser and seeing him do a lightweight project is a breath of fresh air.

    As for GHJ, although Best Love wasn’t something I enjoyed but she delivered that character well and looking forward to her work in this.

  25. 25 canxi

    Weeeee! My favorite actress. πŸ™‚
    *happy dances*
    I will be waiting eagerly for this to hit the internets.

  26. 26 Quinze

    I’m so used to seeing Gong Hyo Jin in bad hair when she’s acting that it’s so surprising to see her with such a cut one!

    I think I love this woman in everything. I endured MOST of Pasta for her so I’m pretty sure this is going to be right up my alley πŸ™‚

  27. 27 Ar-Feiniel

    Looking forward to this movie because of Gong Hyo-jin (she was so good in Best Love!).

    Does anyone recognise the song in the trailer? If i’m not mistaken, the lyrics go like this: “in my head thoughts of you keep spinning around”.

  28. 28 alaki

    omg is that my babydaddy Ji Jin Hee in the church scene?

  29. 29 corey

    this sounds like it will be funny but im more excited to see what she will be wearing she has amazing taste

  30. 30 LaLua

    Oh My God!
    This Movie Will Make my days more colourful. Mostly because of GHJ and HJW. They look so awesome.
    Cant wait. Seriously.

  31. 31 Francis Yang

    Can somebody help me with finding the song in the trailer…It goes in my head thoughts of you keep spinning around me …HELP i’ve been looking for it for a year now
