Gentleman’s F44 and meet-cute

All suited up and ready for action. A Gentleman’s Dignity has released more stills, this time of our middle-aged-flower-men quartet (Seriously, this is what they’re calling it. I think F44 is better by a long shot.) and of Jang Dong-gun and Kim Haneul‘s first meeting, on a rainy day outside a cafe.

The foursome look dapper in their suits (can’t really live up to the name in the title if you’re not in a suit), although Lee Jong-hyuk looks more pimp daddy than dignified gentleman. He’s rocking some weird hair for this role. And what’s with the glaring lack of socks? I don’t care how pretty you are. You wear socks with your suit or I can’t take you seriously. Or perhaps that’s the point.

Then the stills below show the couple’s first meeting, when they notice each other through a cafe window and lock eyes. There’s not much we can glean in the way of chemistry from a meeting separated by glass, but everyone seems to be abuzz over the pair’s first encounter.

But what cracks me up the most are the stills at the very bottom, of Kim Min-jong and Kim Suro playing the high school versions of themselves. HIGH SCHOOL. I honestly don’t know which is funnier–that we’re supposed to buy F44 as F4, or Kim Suro’s insane hairdo, that’s two wingtips away from Flock of Seagulls. I’m thinking he looks more like a crazy ajusshi who ate the high schooler that uniform belonged to, and then put it on as a trophy.

A Gentleman’s Dignity premieres May 26 on SBS.

I bet this is an anniversary gathering for the ancients from High-School. "So what did you become, and what are you doing now?" Then we will start with a battered F44 and some gentlemen loosers... :)

Right?! Let's hope this is a reunion and not an actual *day* of high school. Not even F44 can pull that off. LOL!

Am I the only one who finds KHN an average actress?! She's pretty and all but she doesn't move me. :/ Hope she can prove me wrong with this one...

Also, most of us K-drama watchers who've embarked on this delicious train-ride in the past 5ish years don't realize the gravity of Dong-gun's return to drama land!! I'm kinda excited to see what he's all about and him to blow me away...

She was definitely not average in Blind. I was impressed, and had not been, particularly, before that.

Heh. Kim Min Jong honestly doesnt look ALL THAT different from his HS days. Less "fresh faced" but that comes with age... I practically spit out my coffee seeing Kim Suro though. puwhahaha! What a hairstyle. :D

I saw these pictures earlier and laughed so hard at Kim Suro's pic in uniform. The stepmother, in uniform, trying to act 1/3 of his age? this is so precious.

Can't wait. Donggun oppa. long time no see!!!

I love when they make the older actors play themselves in high school, and then try to hide their ages through the use of soft focus. My favorite case of this was the couple from Last Scandal XD

They definitely don't look like highschoolers! Particularly the guy without the glasses (sorry, don't know his name) is a big FAIL as a highschooler.

God knows I love JDG... and I so would be anticipating this drama, but I just can't with KHN! Unfortunately everytime I see her she just turns the excitement dial waaaaay down.

I so wish they had gotten Kim Soyeon instead.

Ha! Glad I'm not the only one who fixates on socks-and-lack-thereof. No socks, no swoon. It's hard to see a guy as a man when I know his ankles are daintier than mine.

I'm right there with you about the socks. Except my problem is that no socks always makes me think stinky, sweaty feet. Yeesh. But this drama still looks cute. *crosses fingers and chants* "Please be funny. Please be funny."

Yeah, that's another part of it for me, too. Mostly, though, it just looks silly. I think I'd be a total Lee Min-ho fangirl if he just wore socks - I might even forgive him for the pink pants, and that's a lot coming from me.

I can't decide if this drama looks funny or boring. I'm hoping for something in the vein of The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry - laugh-out-loud funny with a dash of poignancy. If we could get that from the male angle, I might just dance for joy. *crosses fingers and joins in the chanting*

Those stills of the main couple's first meeting remind me of Soulmate, you know the cafe where the OTP keeps passing by each other, in the rain. He's sitting inside and she walks by the window. It even looks like the same cafe!

Those last photos remind a bit of Romance Town when the two older ladies dressed like teenagers. I busted a gut at that bit. They couldn't get two girls to do the part? Same here. They couldn't get four boys to play the teen versions of the F44? Ridic.

I agree, I really never like these types of shots. I always ask why they just can't get younger people to play the young versions. They do usually look younger than they are, but not that young

I think it works when they're doing it for the comedic effect and I think with the age of these guys, they're definitely doing it for the comedic affect. It's only awkward when we're meant to believe they're really teenagers (like Han Kang from 49 days)

OMG! Dying at the F44 in high school uniforms! I will say this, sometimes it's funny when they don't have younger actors and sometimes it just annoys me. I'll wait to see which side of the pendulum this Drama swings to for me.

As of now I know that my Ahjussi Crush radar is going haywire over this F44.

Yay - F44 oppas!! :) hehe... sure do like the young-uns but this is where it's at :) So happy to see them all in a drama together! Yippee.

I love them... so cute & handsome. Really looking forward to this - I hope it doesn't disappoint me.

LOL - I can't wait to see them in their high school years haha... does JDG's character get to be in high school uniform too??

I'm ok with no socks, but I definitely prefer socks... as seriously it's mostly the entertainment world that doesn't wear shoes with their suits. I did always wonder how they keep from getting nasty sweaty feet.

F44 - fighting!!!!!!!!! please drama gods, let this be good! And that our OTP has some good chemistry.

I am SO going to watch this! Just for the sake of watching a probably over the top hilarious scene with Kim Suro wearing a high school uniform surrounded by kids so much younger than him and calling him Suro-ya! or his character's name like that.

Who cares about F4. F44 is the way to go!

Wow. This show premieres the day I graduate from high school. Speaking of which, what is it with kdramas and having the middle-aged people play themselves in high school? That is just ridiculous. Can't they afford to get younger actors who bear a resemblance to the adult actors? That annoys me. Like in 49 Days. I couldn't buy Jo Hyun-Jae in a high school uniform. It just didn't look right.

Anyway, this looks like a good show, and I am eager for it to start.

Looking at the business perspective this is a really dumb move. This is not going to increase the series rating nor attract more subscriber to the channel at all! Even worse, they will lost subscriber if they going to keep cutting down episode like this. Success is not going to happen at instant, learning from failure is the road to success and this is a difficult business/market to be in (Cable channel)
