Casting news: Kim Ah-joong and Ji Sung will be romancing each other in a new movie, a romantic comedy titled My P.S. Partner. Anyone wanna take a guess what the P.S. stands for?
Not photoshop, not parasailing, and not pizza-snacking (what? That’s a thing). In this case it indicates phone sex, and the story kicks off when the two leads are accidentally connected in a wrong number gone…kinky?
Ji Sung plays a man who can’t get over his ex-girlfriend who has insecurities about sex. Kim Ah-joong plays a woman who means to call her indifferent boyfriend and accidentally calls Ji Sung instead. Based on the premise I’m going to presume she engages in naughty talk before realizing she’s sexing up the wrong guy, and I guess I shouldn’t be surprised if the guy doesn’t bother to stop her. It makes for a bit of an embarrassing meet-cute story, but hey, Cupid works in mysterious ways.
This project will give both actors a chance to stretch their comedy muscles, which is fun since both do have pretty good comic timing, even if much of their work has been in serious fare. Kim’s most recent drama was the forensic crime thriller Sign, but she was sweet and endearing in 200 Pound Beauty. And while Ji Sung had done lots of dramatic work in the past (Royal Family, Swallow the Sun), his last drama Protect the Boss showed he has a funnybone and knows how to use it.
My PS Partner plans to begin filming in March.
