Drama Casting & News
Posters for All About My Romance
by | March 29, 2013 | 64 Comments

Upcoming political rom-com All About My Romance has finally released its posters, and uh… the result is a little underwhelming. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen fanart pop up two hours after a drama casting announcement (*cough Lee Min-ho cough*) that look better than these, but I think the white ones are likely pre-photoshop, which then makes me wonder, why release unfinished work? Anyway, the video for the poster shoot itself is ADORABLE, which bodes better for the show. Or maybe Shin Ha-kyun is just adorable, even in all his suave ajusshi glory.

Shin Ha-kyun and Lee Min-jung star as political rivals who end up falling in love and carrying on a secret relationship, which is pretty much the only option when you’ve publicly lambasted your opposing party’s representative and called the people ignorant for electing them. Park Hee-soon is Lee Min-jung’s aide and Han Chae-ah is a political reporter who went to law school with both men.

The rom-com comes from the team behind Protect the Boss, which explains why the posters look vaguely familiar. (Do they only have the ONE font?) It does make me hopeful for some laugh-out-loud comedy, which would be a breath of fresh air in the current drama landscape. All About My Romance follows That Winter which is off-schedule by an episode, so the premiere will be on Thursday April 4.

    Shin Ha Kyun ten times more sexy when he’s smiling.

    • 1.1 Ivoire

      He’s hot :-)…

      • 1.1.1 Arhazivory

        So hot 😀

      • 1.1.2 JiHwan

        Insanely hot 🙂

      • 1.1.3 Ivoire

        LOL, I love these comments. How about: “He is hotter than hot :-).”
        Seriously though, the guy is smexy, and I personally LOVE that he is an ahjussi. Ahjussis FTW!!!!!

    • 1.2 JO

      LOL the song says “He makes your panties drop”.

  2. Soo

    Looks hella boring. Lee Min Jung needs to do a better job at picking projects.

  3. Revy

    I think i fell asleep looking at the posters

    • 3.1 matinsoleil

      Hahaha you’re funny!!! It’s not the best job ever anyway…

  4. Mystisith

    Posters are meh but the BTS of the shooting: OMG! SHK is like a model, all cheeky and side glances. LMJ is adorable and looks more mature than in her previous drama. They are sparkling together! ♥

    • 4.1 Kiara

      There is hope, she looks more mature beside him or maybe its just that Shin Ha-kyun factor. He is just so good but not in an indimitating way because he can make others look good too.

  5. Quiet Thought

    Han Chae-ah in another second lead where she gets to dress hotter than the female lead. But, presumably she won’t be wiping Lee-Min Jung off the screen like she did with that unfortunate lollipop in Gaksital.

    • 5.1 Addylovesbwood

      lmaooooooooooo @ “unfortunate lollipop “

    • 5.2 miami

      Han Chae-ah FTW!!!

    • 5.3 Cadwalider

      Yeah, that’s the way it always seems to work, for some reason, in the world of K-dramas. The lead is often just as stunning as the the second lead, but the story has her coming from behind to to overtake her rival. When I first saw Lee Min-jung (in ‘Boys Over Flowers’) , I thought to myself: “What a beautiful girl. Beautiful face. A great smile and a charming personality. But, her shape is a distant second to Goo Hye Sun’s (‘Geun Jandi’). 😉

      • 5.3.1 Quiet Thought

        Of course, it isn’t really Jin Sae-yeon’s fault that her character was underwritten in Gaksital. I doubt that she would have had the screen presence to play a strong character, but the writer only make a token effort to create one. It was Kang-to and Shunji’s story all the way through. By the time she had gotten captured and rescued for the third or fourth time it was pretty obvious that Mok-Dan was going nowhere except as a plot sacrifice. I wouldn’t have taken a fifty to one bet on her surviving the series. Rie, on the other hand, had strength and complexity and skills to show off and some really smashing costumes to wear.

        • yuri

          Plus, it’s easier in terms of acting to play someone sultry and seductive, especially when you have low-cut, tight outfits to wear.
          Jin Sae-yeon had a harder role to play. Playing someone innocent and pure, and all done wearing in suits. That’s not to say Rie wasn’t good. She just had an easier role in terms of acting. Ask any actor which is easier to play/ convey.

          • canxi

            I don’t think that’s true. Not everyone can be sultry and seductive. There has to be a certain sexiness to you already, you can’t just act it out. If Jin Se Yeon were to play the part of Rie for example, I doubt she would pull that off tight outfits withstanding. In order for a role to work, you have to suit the character. BUT as a character Rie was just as complicated as Kang To and Shunji in my opinion. Mok-Dan was not. Jin Se Yeon already has a pure and innocent look to her that helped with that character, but all in all there was nothing to that character but pure and innocent.

    Posters are boringggg but gah! Watching the video made me super excited.
    They seem to have good rapport and the leads (okay, fine, Shin Ha-kyun especially) are adorable~
    Definitely going to try watching this one.

    • 6.1 Lilian

      oh yeah. I agree. The video is not that good but still it is much much more interesting than the poster! Haha…

  7. AnotherFan

    Shin Ha Kyun. Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….

  8. Kiara

    So not boring with Shin Ha-kyun in it.

  9. pace88

    i’m watching this for Han Chae-ah, can’t wait.

  10. 10 Lotus_Blossom

    Shin Ha-kyun so sexxyy. Super interested after watching that cute video. Please be good!

  11. 11 elle

    Watching just for Ueno Rie…I mean, Han Chae-ah!<3

  12. 12 Addylovesbwood

    only watching to support my Han Chae Ah. I have no business with Lee Min Jung…

    I have 0 to low expectations for this show. so surprise me writers!!

  13. 13 Danna

    I like the posters….they are not high concept but the leads look cute together…I don’t expect much from rom-com posters anyways….plus the BTS videos!! Gotta love Shin Ha Kyun.

    • 13.1 canxi

      I think so too! Much simpler than expected.

      A REALLY nice touch that I like is the first one where Shin Ha Kyun has red socks and Lee Min Jung has green shoes. Colors that are on two opposing sides of the color wheel but are complementary. Nice ^^

  14. 14 biankoy

    it took me a while to recognize Han Chae-ah as Rie from Gaksital without the eyeliner. She looks wonderful, though. And to join the bandwagon, man, is Shin Ha-kyun mighty fine or what? HOT ahjussi on the house peeps! HOT!!!

  15. 15 canxi

    That BTS video made me smile. Hahaha, the song was so perfect for Shin Ha Kyun, too. Cannot wait!! ^^ This looks really enjoyable.

  16. 16 TiaC

    If it premieres on Thursday, does that mean that SBS will air episodes 1 and 2 that same day, or will the entire series be off an episode like That Winter was?

    • 16.1 canxi

      Gooood question…

  17. 17 sPark*

    I could not watch Brain because I have yet to ever finish a medical drama, but I am all for romantic comedies 🙂 I hope this is crack! Too bad everything released so far has been dull or meh. At least Shin Ha Kyun is adorable as ahjusshi in the BTS and Park Hee Soon is mmm. I have been liking my ahjusshis more these days lolol

    • 17.1 Pipit

      I don’t like medical drama either. But I was extremely glad I watched Brain it made me fell in love with Shin Ha Kyun. IMO it’s the best medical drama ever ^_^

  18. 18 Babs

    Wow girlfriday is right the posters look really off…

    But because of the photo shoot video, the drama caught my attention. I wasn’t planning on sitting down for this one, but now I’m kinda intrigued.

  19. 19 miami

    Han Chae-ah!!!

  20. 20 Nokcha

    I remember seeing SHK in Save the Green Planet, and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. He’s not your traditional good looking leading actor, but he has charisma, something A LOT of good looking leading men lack. I’d rate him up there with Song Kang Ho and Choi Min Sik, among others.

    And next to him, the usually adorable Lee Min Jung looks so flat and one dimensional. I loved her in Smile, You, and thought she was so so in Big, but that’s probably because Big was less than so, so.

    I think I’ll tune in and see what it’s all about. I’ve been so disappointed with the recent batch of dramas, and I’m hoping the spring season will bring some good fare to watch.

  21. 21 Arhazivory

    I just fell in love with Shin Ha Kyung all over again. <3

  22. 22 ida

    i love him so much as an actor!
    yes, it is a second lead role, but GOD. i love him.
    his screen presence and charisma are off the walls crazy high.

  23. 23 Z

    Oh my goodness, the way that he looked at her as they were leaning over that box with their heads close together! She’s a professional for real because I would never have been able to take that picture… if would be frame after frame of blushes and giggles.

  24. 24 snow_white

    Posters are boring….but I know that a drama cannot be judged from them….

    I hope this turns out to be good as I liked Protect the Boss, a light,fun watch 🙂

  25. 25 rhia

    but then why would you go fall in love and secretly carry on a relationship with someone who has, and would continue to publicly reproach you?

    • 25.1 Annie

      Most rom-coms don’t make sense when you really dissect them.

    • 25.2 Mystisith

      I guess that’s the point of the drama: You don’t choose who you fall in love with (think Romeo and Juliet) but you can find a way to make it work if you really want to.
      There is a number of famous couples where husband and wife were politically not in tune, and still they were happy.

    • 25.3 Silk

      This actually happens in reality in the U.S. James Carvell (Democrat) married Mary… (Republican). And they even appeared together as debate opponents in talk show after they married.

  26. 26 Trina

    Shin Ha Kyun HOT!! Well Lee Min Jung… I hope you will be good in this drama. I love you in Smile, You. You are ok in Big. So, please be good in this drama…

  27. 27 Angeliam

    Lee ming jung and shin ha kyun fighting

  28. 28 ht

    What is up with the these posters? LOL.

    If only Park Hee-soon didn’t have his specs on.. still hot though. Always hot. Can’t waittt!!!

  29. 29 Bengbeng

    gosh, i’m drooling over the 2 male leads =)

  30. 30 hit_me_you_die

    yay!! finally a drama that looks promising… winter was my last bet but meh… Yyayy! i need to find a new obsession anyway…

  31. 31 song yong in

    Yey! April 4! Rom-Com! 🙂

  32. 32 haaruka

    Aw, I really love the simplicity for the poster. Better than major obvious photoshop-ed ones.

  33. 33 Oopz

    And here i thought that SHK’s hairstyle sucks, n then boom it actually look millions times better in motion 😀
    Hoping that it will deliver a solid story n sparkling addicted chemistry which im badly needed one now in dramaland.

  34. 34 Huong

    I can’t get off the image of SHK in Brain drama. He can’t afford having a low-rated drama at this age and Lee Min Jung has appeared in some not-so-popular ones. Hopefully this is not the case. I am praying the script is solid and the plot will make sense, not following the stupid road of Level 7.

    • 34.1 canxi

      Actually, I think he CAN afford having a low-ratings drama. Dude has QUITE the filmography and he’s pretty amazing at what he does. Low rating or not, I don’t think anyone would put the blame on Shin Ha Kyun solely for his gravitas alone. You can’t argue with good acting. But also there is the fact, that I (and maybe others) probably would have not enjoyed Brain half as much without Shin Ha Kyun.

      I also think this will be good for Lee Min Jung! I completely forgot about her stint in Boys Over Flowers and realized that she can be awesome and strong (as that character was). So, with this character (a politician has to be strong right?) and Shin Ha Kyun opposite her, she’ll probably be bringing the talent up 10-fold even if just to match her co-star.

      The cast is really good! Even if the script is not so hot-to-trot, I feel like we’ll be entertained anyway. Though, I have a feeling this will be pretty good!

      • 34.1.1 Kiara

        Couldn’t agree more.

  35. 35 Pipit

    I agree that had the male lead in Brain were not Shin Ha Kyun Brain would not be Brain.

  36. 36 siopao

    watching episode 4 and I am impress… dialogue is good, political insights very interesting… and very sexy Shun Ha Kyun… plus there is this nice sexual undertone in the interaction of the two main leads…

  37. 37 Silk

    This drama is surprising with great dialogue, and chemistry between Shun Ha Kyun and Lee Ming Jung. It is very witty and the whole cast is so funny and great acting. It is very refreshing compared to those drama with the usual plot. I hope more people watching this.

  38. 38 pearl3101

    This drama was so funny that I was ROFL most of the time….. All four couples were very funny and cute…. And I think SHK as more funny than hot….. But that is not bad at all…. His expressions are to die for….. (Y) 😀 The one complaint I have though is of Lee Min Jung holding back… I am a big fan of “Smile you” and I cannot picture her that way…

  39. 39 pearl3101

    Oh forgot to mention…I like the reporter/ second lead girl… Most second leads get on your nerves but she is as funny as anyone else. This is very welcome.. 🙂 I like her after this drama.. I always thought her pretty but I like her in this one..

  40. 40 pearl3101

    Oh forgot to mention…I like the reporter/ second lead girl… Most second leads get on your nerves but she is as funny as anyone else. This is very welcome.. 🙂 I like her after this drama.. I always thought her pretty but I like her in this one..

  41. 41 sheathice

    love this drama! It was hilarious and I found myself loving all leads and supporting characters. If only the drama was longer, some things could have been improved such as character development.. Anyway, it’s been so long since I had a good laugh watching a drama 😀

  42. 42 Newbiedramagirl

    Shin Ha Kyun has this very Patrick Demps-esque feel about him.
    Ajhussi FTW!
