Yoon Sang-hyun and Park Ha-sun’s tone-deaf rom-com
Now this is a coupling that’s surprising and adorable. Yoon Sang-hyun (Can’t Lose) and Park Ha-sun (High Kick 3) are headlining a romantic comedy film about a woman who’s determined to conquer her terrible tone-deaf singing to win over the man of her dreams. That’s so random and just inherently quirky. The movie, called Tone-Deaf Clinic, has completed principal photography and plans to premiere later this year.
Park Ha-sun plays Dong-joo, a woman with a one-sided crush on a guy that she thinks for some reason will never give her the time of day if she can’t sing. Either that or she’s got it in her head that she has to serenade him to make him fall in love. She’s innately tone-deaf but finds a clinic, a music school that promises to teach her how to sing. Yoon Sang-hyun plays Shin-hong, the instructor at the school.
Aw, he’s going to teach her how to sing so she can win another man, all the while falling in love with her? I adore everything about that premise, and they seem perfectly cast for the parts. Remember Park Ha-sun’s awesomely bad singing performance in High Kick? So great. She really commits to the comedy, and well, he’s just always funny. It’ll be her first major starring role in a film, and Yoon Sang-hyun’s big screen debut. Directing is PD Kim Jin-young, of Dangerous Meeting.
The characters first meet in the subway station, while posting flyers. She does it as a part-time job while he’s doing it to promote his Tone-Deaf Clinic. They get into a turf war over flyer space, which literally turns into a physical altercation. Fisticuffs as a meet-cute? Love it already.
Tone-Deaf Clinic will hit theaters later this year.
