Gong Yoo and Lee Min-jung’s Big snowy date

Aw, this couple is going to be so cute together. Big‘s stars Gong Yoo and Lee Min-jung shot their first scene together, a flashback to the first time they held hands on a snowy winter date. They managed a pretty good winter facsimile for the middle of May, though I find it funny the amount of greenery that’s behind them while the “snow” is falling. Heh.

Lee Min-jung’s character, Gil Da-ran, is a teacher at the high school where the younger cast are all students, and her character is described as a foolish, jump-first-think-later kind of girl. She seems like she’s going to be the innocent ditzy heroine type that the Hong sisters love SO MUCH. Why, I will never know, but hopefully she can’t actually be dumb, since she’s a teacher. I’ll be optimistic and go with quirky.

She starts off the drama engaged to Gong Yoo’s Seo Yoon-jae, who then gets his soul swapped with an eighteen-year old troublemaker in her class. So depending on whether or not there’s un-swapping and re-swapping, a lot of this couple’s scenes might play out in flashbacks like this one, as she attempts to remind herself why she’s still engaged to the once-perfect doctor who now spends his day playing video games and chasing eighteen-year old girls around. Oy. ‘S a good thing you’re cute, buddy.

Big premieres June 4 on KBS.

Why use snow when you are in natural cherry blossom season?

I think they may have used this to signify time passing. Since the above was supposedly their date before the current timeline of the series.

I do hope they make full use of the Cherry Blossom. I didn't realize Korea had Cherry Blossoms until 49 Days.

Uh, you know there are a ton of trees that flower very similar flowers in the spring, and then unflower quickly, right? All over the world, too. Cherry blossoms are not the end-all be-all.

I just needed to say that :P

Kinda torn about this - the plot itself doesn't interest me that much, but I have faith in the cast/Hong sisters. I'll probably catch the first couple of episodes to make up my mind. ^^

Lols. I'm completely opposite. It's precisely b/c it's the Hong sisters that I've got my gills up - call it backlash for over-hyping. But Gong and Lee are too much of a lure for me to pass this up.

I'd love to hangout with the 6.2 ft Ji Hyun-Woo (Queen In-hyun's Man). I might get away with wearing heels around him cause he's only a few inches taller than me. I think he's got a hawt body, tall, dark with broad-shoulders and a killer smile. Love every side shot of his face, his jaw-line....so fiiine. To be continue.......

This kind of combination can work, or it can be weird—Painter of the Wind was almost ruined by the size differential, because it felt like child abuse every time the huge male lead got close to the pocket-sized female lead. I think these two will be great together, though.

"My Girl" was unwatchable and "Hong Gil Dong" was subpar.

While there were flaws to MGIAG, the Hing sisters did a real good job w/ the relationship btwn the 2 leads which is the key component to a rom-com.

The best overall writing job that they have done (that I have seen) is "The Greatest Love."

I'm just going to cover Lee Min-Jung's part of the screen and imagine it's Eun Chan. Its not that I don't love LMJ, but... Coffee Prince will always take precedence, ANYWHERE! It's that one drama I'll never fall out of love with. :)

Hm, but the only lead female character of theirs I can think of who fits that description is Mi-nyu in You're Beautiful, so that's one of... six? (or, okay, five, as I haven't seen Hong Gil Dong.)

Yi Nok in Hong Gil Dong, Mi-ho in Gumiho, Lee Da Hae (forgot her character's name) in My Girl, and as you mentioned, Mi-nyu in You're Beautiful.

But Mi-ho wasn't ditzy (though she was innocent in certain respects); Yoo-rin (Lee Da-hae's character) isn't someone I'd have characterised as ditzy or innocent, either (if the word used had been 'annoying', otoh... ;)); and I can't speak for any characters in HGD as I've yet to see it.

Perhaps it all depends on how you (generic) interpret 'ditzy' and 'innocent', though.

*shrugs* YMMV. :)

Yeah Mi-ho wasn't "ditzy", just unfamiliar to her new world.

Yi Nok in HGD was definitely ditzy and not in a realistic or endearing way.

0

reply

Required fields are marked *

Have to agree with Jules. I was thinking the same thing. What Hong sisters characters are ditzy? If we go by the dictionary definition of silly, scatterbrained, Go Mi-nyu was innocent, certainly, but more klutzy then ditzy.

Don't know about Yi Nok, but Mi-ho in Gumiho, I would say more cutesy with a dark edge to her, and in My Girl, Lee Da Hae's character was by no means "ditzy". She was more of a scheming manipulator then ditzy, and could only be called "innocent" in relation to her lack of experience with men.

Actually, I think the Hong sisters do a good job with having a variety of different lead women characters, you had the naive, unworldy Go Mi-nyu, the bookish Chun Hyang, and the collected and practical Ae Jung. Very different.

0

Required fields are marked *

I think from Yi Nok and afterwards, the heroines do carry more of an air of innocence and unworldliness (though there was that awesomely dark, Kill-Bill-Yi-Nok moment in HGD). They're genuinely sweet girls. Heroines from the first three Hong sisters dramas -Chunhyang, Yoorin, and Jo Anna/Na Sang Shil- had a sharpness to them, an edginess, and a groundedness. Chunhyang could have fallen into the sweet category, but the way Han Chae Young played her made sure it didn't. Ae-jung was a mix of the two kinds of heroines. So who knows what kid of heroine LMJ's Gil Da-ran will be! The earlier heroines? the later heroines? a mix of both? a completely new kind?

Seriously why has no one seen HGD? YiNok is the epitome of that description but MiYo, LDH's character and even MiHo could fit the bill given your interpretation and patience level.

0

reply

Required fields are marked *

I think Yi Nok and Mi-nyu are the most similar in regards to that character type.
Gumiho could be considered as well if it wasn't for the fact that she was a gumiho & understandable not human with cute blunt curiousity.

Chun Hyang and Goo Ae Jung are probably my favourite female characters though.

I can't really remember lee da hae from my girl that much though, while couple of fantasy is the only hong sisters drama i haven't watched.

And Who Are You - I loved her in that drama (but then, I loved that drama, period, so I'm perhaps unable to be objective *g*).

I'm sure she's been in countless others, but the only movies I've seen her in have been Cyrano Agency, with Uhm Tae-woong; and Wonderful Radio, with Lee Jung-jin (!).

Oh, this is gonna be interesting. I think this is the first Hong sisters rom-com where the leads are already in a relationship, not heading toward one. I don't know how they're going to make up for the usual bickery stage, but I bet it's gonna be funny.
