Youthful romance in I Miss You’s poster shoot
by | October 11, 2012 | 84 Comments

Awww. My heart tugs for the lovers of I Miss You already, and that’s from these four photos, which come from the drama’s poster shoots taken on October 8.

Well, the production sure knew what they were about when casting Yeo Jin-gu and Kim So-hyun (The Moon That Embraces the Sun), because they are two young souls capable of shoring up a heckuva lot of goodwill for their adult counterparts, Yoochun and Yoon Eun-hye. And while neither of them looks very much like their future selves, I’m pretty sure I don’t care since I’m just happy to see them acting in a new project. Without one sucking out the youthful virility of the other this time.

The MBC melodrama centers around the two characters who fall in love at fifteen, are separated by some painful K-drama MacGuffin, and reunite years later all growed up. So while the premise carries lots of melo implications, if we’re going by the credits of the producers (which include Smile You and Can You Hear My Heart by the writer, and Thank You and Can’t Lose by the director) I think the show promises to be pretty warm and touching as well.

Yeo Jin-gu said after the shoot, “Since it’s my first poster shoot, it was harder to get into character than when filming a drama. But it was a good experience, and will help in my acting.”

Kim So-hyun said,”Since the poster has to imply and represent one scene from the drama, it was a bit difficult, and unfamiliar. But I feel really good about it, and I think the poster will have a lot of ambiance so I look forward to it.”

I Miss You premieres following Arang and the Magistrate at the end of October.

  2. rbee

    So pretty. Love those two…as well as the older two. Looking forward to this, painful K-drama MacGuffin and all.

    Awww, they’re so pretty! Argh, Yeo Jin Goo, stop making me feel like a total pervert! πŸ™

    • 3.1 Perevell

      I know what you mean πŸ™ He’s younger than me and I’m still attracted to him *drools*

      Wokay, snapping out of it. But happy with all the pretty πŸ™‚ These two actors are awesome, Yeo Jin Gu’s acting is just top notch.

      • 3.1.1 Khrisstyne

        I know you two feel. I keep finding myself looking up his age to make sure there is no error.

        Anyway, I can’t for this the posters look amazing.

      • 3.1.2 bd

        YJG’s acting was already very good in his very first role as a young boy in the film “Sad Movie.”

        YGJ is just a natural actor.

    • 3.2 OMG

      Too late we r all already there…..

    • 3.3 bishbash

      Take comfort that you’re not alone. He can totally be my son yet I find him just too cute for words. Argh.

  4. Rashell

    So excited for this one, both young and old cast are great! Really hoping for not too much melo looking at the writer and PD credits.

  5. kilmenyanne

    I prefer Jin-gu in a hanbok.

    • 5.1 swoony

      yoochun also looks good in a hanbok…hehe

      • 5.1.1 D

        yup, not denying that, i adore Yoochun in hanbok.. but he’ll be w YEH, so im ok..

  6. milkmustache

    Omg, I love all the actors/actresses so far for this! πŸ˜€

  7. Jillia

    Just four episodes with these two young actors… I’m already sad. πŸ™

  8. ceire

    The last two photos, awwwwwwww!

  9. J

    I can totally see trace of Yoon Eun Hye-ness in So hyun’s face now! I don’t know about you but I feel like this girl is poised to become one of Korea’s top actresses someday.

    • 9.1 Danna

      Yes, she does have some facial resemblance to Yoon Eun Hye

    • 9.2 Hagar

      IA with all of this.

    • 9.3 hawaiianseoul

      yes, I reckon so too.

    • 9.4 Coco

      It’s the tooth.

  10. 10 Annie

    Gosh, he going to be so tall and “DAMM” his hottest is already in full gear! Which is second to his great acting ability!

  11. 11 Hagar

    I’m loving this girl soooooooo much these days <3

  12. 12 Jandoe

    The writer I thought was GREAT in her writing of CYHMH so while I m not a fn of Yoon Eun Hye (she had me at Goong… And had me running away at everything after that) these two kids look adorable. Might just tune in if I’ve the time to spare.

    • 12.1 gala

      Even vineyard man? She was great in that. I loved her chemistry with Oh Man Suk.

      • 12.1.1 Mystisith

        I hated her character in it: The pure bratty princess, whining from beginning to end (like in Lady). OMS was great and yes they had chemistry but if YEH wants to impress me with her acting skills, she has to pick up different kind of characters and play a bit fresh.

    • 12.2 bd

      YEH overacted and overdid the fake cutesy stuff in “Goong.”

      By far, her best role and best performance was in “Coffee Prince.”

      • 12.2.1 wonderviewer

        I’m agre wit tat

  13. 13 Indigo

    Okay, I like like Yoon Eun Hye and Yoochun, but damn…Yeo Jin Gu and Kim So Hyun should have this drama all for themselves based on this shoot alone. They look so good together.

  14. 14 alua

    Melodrama? I’m not sure if I can watch this if it’s not going to have a happy ending. Would tug my heart too much!

  15. 15 Noelle

    I am mentally preparing myself for this drama. I will have a heart of steel by the time this premieres. No more tears people. No more tears.

    • 15.1 visitor

      Easier said than done. πŸ™
      But of course I’m still looking forward to it.

      This guy is cute but uh, as observed above, not much resemblance to YC! I hope it won’t be too jarring to go from young’uns to grown-ups.

  16. 16 anna

    Aw, they have reincarnated in this lifetime and fell in love with each other. Their love was never meant to be in the past (The Moon That Embraces the Sun). :’) Also glad she’s not evil in this one.

  17. 17 canxi

    Kim So Hyun looks like a young Son Ye Jin in that second-to-last picture. Cute kids ^^* Aww, kinda makes me wish the drama was centered on them. Youth love T^T

    • 17.1 aX

      No, not really.

    • 17.2 Kate

      I agree about her looking like Son Ye Jin in that picture. That’s what I thought so, too, when I first saw the photo above.

      • 17.2.1 bd

        I thought Kim So-hyun looked a bit like Son Ye-jin back in TMTETS and RTP.

    • 17.3 canxi

      @aX — Really? You don’t see it? She doesn’t look like her usually, just in that particular picture, to me.

      @Kate — Yes! Glad I’m not the only one. It’s definitely the nose and the lips that are making me think so, haha.

  18. 18 Jessica Huynh

    Omg so hyun and yoochun will be in the same drama again! (rooftop prince) well shell play the younger role again hehe i love eunhye but only in coffee prince n goong,her other dramas afterwards ..meh not a fan like lie to me n take care of the young lady i didnt like those.AT ALL.period

    • 18.1 aX

      Maybe this Kdrama will be her real comeback!

      • 18.1.1 Taber

        LOL, where did she go to have a comeback? She in drama and movies every year since she debut this not a comeback, a person success is not determine by the drama rating but the acting skills as an artist. Lie To Me was very successfully in U.S and China and one of my top 5 favorite because it was “GOOD” Honey, this not a comeback 240 comment less then 24 hours, she is a powerhouse!

        Missing You (MBC, 2012)
        Lie to Me (SBS, 2011)
        Personal Preference (MBC, 2010) cameo
        Take Care of the Young Lady (KBS2, 2009)
        The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (MBC, 2007)
        The Vineyard Man (KBS2, 2006)
        Goong (MBC, 2006)
        Rainbow Romance (MBC, 2005)

        • KERA

          LTM-only kids watching it

          • zodd

            You liked LTM? Them lower standards.

        • bd

          In Korea, every new project is regarded as a “comeback.”

          Same goes for music groups that have new albums/singles every year.

          And LTM was simply horrible – just awful cliche filled writing w/ stereotypical characters and stilted, uninteresting dialogue.

          • Mystisith

            My goodness, yes! LTM was awful! I will never understand extreme fans unable to recognize when a drama of their idol sucks. I watched a lot of crap dramas because I liked the cast. Still I’m able to say it’s purely and simply crap. It’s like the Earth will stop spinning if they acknowledge it.

          • bd

            I’ve liked YEH since her X-Man days, but I have no problem acknowledging when the drama she’s in is crap or if her acting is subpar.

            Basically, I’m waiting to see the combination of a great script and a great PD (like in CP) who can draw out another good performance from YEH.

            Seems to me that too many PDs want YEH to rely on acting “cute” as acting which is simply annoying.

            While I like cute, it has to be natural (like SMA in MGIAG or KTH in “My Princess”) and not fake and cloying.

  19. 19 loli

    hmm, the poster looks like love rain ..
    i bet IMU will get single-digit rating.

  20. 20 aX

    Should’ve been better if it was with the other actress from MOON EMBRACES THE SUN but oh well!

    • 20.1 Ritz

      i know, i really thought it was going to be her πŸ™

  21. 21 Toystar

    2 cute I am excited to watch.

  22. 22 matinsoleil

    ooooh my gosh so cute! I just love the those two and they have so much talent. Can we just keep the children cast for at least 10 ep? I’m just sayin’ ^^
    Anyway no rooting for melodrama but lately it seems like there’s melodramas everywhere. I just hope that drama will be a succesful for Yoon eun-hye.

  23. 23 stars4u

    I can’t wait to watch this!

    I’ve been missing Yeo Jin-gu so I’ve been revisiting Moon/Sun. I enjoyed watching Kim So-hyun in Ma Boy.

  24. 24 pauper

    Oh man, Yeo Jin-gu is gonna be the death of me. I guess he skipped the awkward teen phase. No kid that age should look this good with a beautiful, deep voice ♥

    I love Yeo Jin-gu complexion, it not that pale, lifeless, chalky white, he have a darker skin tone that makes him looks so healthy. I read that his kind of skin tone is considered unattractive, especially on a female. It’s differently an Asia mind set because I always shudder when I see Asia actress/actor that look like β€œGhost” I just want to scream eat a burger, get some sunlight!

    I’m loving the drama β€œNice Guy” but I swear I just want them to stay on that beach and get some sun I felt like they could do a sick scene right on the beach that how pale they complexion look. I glad that Yeo Jin-gu has not started to bleach his skin he look β€œYummy” with a little color to him.

    • 26.1 canxi

      Be mindful that you might be saying offensive things. Nothing wrong with skin of any color.

      • 26.1.1 Leona

        she is right… in Korea is a great thing to have your skin whiter than paper – and the cosmetics for doing it are the MUST HAVE of the day.
        I love to see their complexion as natural as God gave it to them – eventually a lil tanned, I still think the natural color of the skin is the best color
        I love Kim Nam Gil to the moon and back, yet his red carpet apparitions are a mystery to me – too much make-up for porn on legs guy
        or No Min Woo – he is white enough even for Korean standards – yet his face whiter than his neck distracts me every time – and he is one of the prettiest faces I’ve ever seen.

        However the fact that Koreans avoid the sun is their secret of their youthful skin even at 40 years old.

        • canxi

          It’s not that, it’s the equating being pale to being sickly thing which isn’t always true. While, I’m not condoning the act of skin-whitening (I personally feel it’s unnecessary and silly), I don’t think it’s all that nice to label pale or white skin as something awful. Some people are just naturally white; pale or whatever…that’s why I said be mindful.

    • 26.2 Sandra

      Mr. Joo Ji Hoon has that complexion too.

  27. 27 christy

    Gah, Yeo Jin Gu, future noona killer. I’m not particularly interested in the story premise but I may have to tune in just to see these tykes.

  28. 28 Lila

    I’m having trouble seeing Eun Hye and Yoo Chun together…hopefully that’ll change once I watch the drama. The child actors are great though.

  29. 29 eternalfive

    Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye together…hm, I can’t really imagine that. Hope it works out though, because despite the melo-sounding storyline, I’m kind of looking forward to this drama now. Mostly ’cause of the people in it.

  30. 30 swoony

    i’m suddenly excited…i don’t like melodramas but since its Yoochun…i will try…and i love YEH ever since Goong and CoffeePrince…lie to me was a bit uhmmm…and i really didn’t finish take care of the young lady even though i fell inlove at first sight for jung il woo….hehehe…but hey, this could be one awesome drama…and i hope the chemistry will sizzle not fizzle. heh.

  31. 31 buchocgirl06

    interested with this one too!..

    anyway just want to ask.. what’s up with yellow umbrella? it seems to signify seperation for couples in kdramaland? just like in love rain and i’m sure there’s also a kdrama (abt separation) that used a yellow umbrella prop..

  32. 32 faridah2201

    Can’t there be a show just with these two as the main actors, no growing up necessary, 4 episodes is not enough. It’ll be Will It Snow at Christmas all over again, with me wanting more of younger version scenes.

  33. 33 saltandpepper

    isn’t the story similar to “will it snow for Christmas”??

  34. 34 racheose

    I don’t know why but my tears just fell by themselves when i saw the last two pics… i’m such a cry baby TT.TT but i’d still watch this i love yeo jin gu so much… phew i also can’t believe he is fifteen o.o

  35. 35 idlehouse

    I think it’s in reference to the most famous yellow umbrella of all, the one from “the umbrellas of Cherbourg,” also about young love separated and met later but too late…

  36. 36 pandasaurus

    Oohoohoohoo!! I’m soooo excited. I love both these two. But c’mon producers and shakers in drama-land! There’s gotta be a story out there for these two as main characters!!

  37. 37 satsuki

    aaaaah from the writer of ‘Can You Hear My Heart?’ ??!!! forget what I said about this drama being meh. I repent.
    I am so in!!!!

  38. 38 syr

    dang. I have a feeling these kids are gonna overshadow their adult counterparts. lol. especially yeo jin goo. this kid is amazing. I’m not sure if yoochun will be able to match up.

  39. 39 Fab

    4 beautiful episodes, they could have gotten less eps, so I am content.
    One of the families moves to the US, let it not be more complicated than that…

  40. 40 jonghoyu

    Honestly, it reminds me of kdrama in early 2000s.
    Didn’t really care about it since it looks melo for me and I thought it’s a drama from another topscriter which I’m not into his/her previous drama.

    But scriptwriter of CYHMH and Smile You?
    I am definitely watching it!

    But I don’t like Last Scandal…

  41. 41 apple

    They should have a Drama of their own, totally capable of it.

    But for the Life of me I cannot see them as the younger counterparts of Park Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye.

    Totally not belivable.

  42. 42 mimi11

    I like YEH and Yoochun, ..some of their works –I like, some, I don’t…
    but having YJG here=I need to watch this!
    lol,, seriously, among all the actors in this drama, I trust YJG the most,, since I have never seen him in a drama that’s BAD (though some became draggy due to the extension so anyway..)
    Added to the good news that the production team is really promising..

    I read somewhere that the team, aside from Can you hear my heart and Thank you, assistant PDs are from Queen Seon Deok,The Moon That Embraces the Sun,Sung Kyun Kwan Scandal…

    I don’t know if that means we get more quality style and directing.. but I hope we do.. I have been really down lately trying to like dramas with lots of potential but horrible directing and execution.

  43. 43 Lucy

    tq jb

    Tie a yelllow ribbon round the old oak tree

    If you still want me, do you still want me …………..

  44. 44 myra

    i read somewhere else that this drama will premiere two weeks after arang wraps up…probably they’ll air a special in the meantime….is it true?

    • 44.1 canxi

      Yup. Specials in between.

  45. 45 anicheung

    Aww… So pretty! I love these kids. Although I’ve found so far (especially with Yeo Jin Gu) that I readily lose interest in the characters after the “childhood” phase of the series because the child actors do such a great job setting up the characters from Day One. Which is so weird because I often look forward to the series because of the adult actors, am looking forward to the appearance of the adult actors while I watch the child actors, but then I enjoy the children so much that I miss them a lot when they finish up their parts. And then I get all excited about the first appearance of the adults… but somehow it loses steam so quickly afterwards.

    Okay, I don’t know what I’m talking about. But it’s safe to say that the child actors often times set up the beginning of the story so well that I just hate to see them leave.

    I do like Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye though, and if the story line isn’t too monotonous or too cliched, I might end up enjoying things.

  46. 46 msposh387

    allkpop says Chun Jung Myung is joining this drama!

    if so, i’d be rooting for the 2nd lead πŸ™‚


  47. 47 ps18

    I think high rate shoot IMISSYOU couple YEH & PYC ^^ & Touch Youthful romance ^^

  48. 48 Seorori

    I’m ready for this one, I think…. Do I have to stack tissue boxes for this ?

  49. 49 chulz08

    yay! can’t wait for Yoochun and Eun Hye’s poster shoot πŸ™‚

  50. 50 Carinne

    Love them!… uhm, are their noses getting pointer and pointer each time, or that their faces are getting smaller and smaller each time from packed schedules?? ‘o , 0″
