Shark begins filming, releases first stills

Why do drama first stills always look so generic, like they could come from any show in the world? That’s my first thought upon seeing these Shark stills, featuring Sohn Ye-jin and Kim Nam-gil as the two headliners of KBS’s upcoming revenge thriller series. Given that the premise itself has a lot going on — revenge, family strife, prosecutors, cops, mysteries, money — you’d think our promos could be a little better at teasing the drama.

Side note: I’m of two minds of Kim Nam-gil sporting a pornstache yet again: (1) At least he can rock it in a way few others can, but (2) really, again? Noooo. I get the compulsion to get out of army duty and want to grow all your hair back and flaunt it to the world, but given how much this drama sounds like Bad Guy anyway I do wish he’d go in the opposite direction with styling himself.

We’re a month before the premiere, which puts the production right on schedule; first shoots took place on April 24, so they’ll probably bag a few weeks of pre-shot episodes before transitioning to the live shoot. The story has Kim Nam-gil out to seek revenge on Sohn Ye-jin’s family (for destroying his own), only to fall in love with her. They’re calling it an “unfortunate romance” between “two people who want each other but are fated not to be,” so… get out the hankies, folks. I foresee lots of melo angsting. At least we know Kim Nam-gil does anguished brooding like nobody’s business.

Shark replaces God of the Workplace on Mondays and Tuesdays, premiering on May 27.

Before Bad Guy I wanted soooooooooo much to see it, yet with all my love for K!NG, I didn't like it, but I loved Jung So Min.
In this drama I love Son Ye Jin and my KNG fangirling didn't fade away with all these years that passed.... so please drama be GOOD.

Lol, I love him with the stache! I loved his rough look in the first half of Bad Guy. *RAWR*

Anyway, this drama better give me a happy ending.

Lolll, I don't mind the stache. He owns it and I can tell it's a preference rather than just..."oh heeey, lemme grow out a stache!"

Maybe this'll be Bad Guy done right? I do appreciate that one for being the drama that made me see Kim Jae-wook in a new light, and also for Jung So-min.

(not to mention, the only drama where I don't find Han Ga-in completely intolerable)

Either way, I hope this is good.

I agree I actually really liked the writing for her character(jae-in) but HGI's acting made me indifferent to her character and even pissed me off at times. I do think if for e.g someone like moon chae won or shin min ah played her I would've actually liked her character.

I actually really like the combo of his haircut + the mustache.

Makes him look like a man instead of the prepubescent boys I see all the time in dramas.

"...get out the hankies..." Cute javabeans.

BTW, how many guys still carry a handkerchief (hankie) in their pockets? My guy does! He usually carries two when we go to the movies ~ oh the joys of having a thoughtful husband!

Haven't watched Queen Seon-duk in it's entirety, but really liked Kim Nam-gil's performance.

Speaking of 'God of the Workplace', I was iffy about it and didn't bother but decided to give it a try today, oh my Lord! It is so funny I can't go 5 seconds without bursting out! Good job crew, I now understand why its neck & neck with Gu!

Omg what'sup with the mostache ! Ewww and the story is solo cliche and old ! I watched actress is PT only cus she wAs opposite min ho oppA so I hVe absolutly no intrest !
Justa question whAs is with them and live shooting can't they just finish it up already as a whole ! Why being so stupid and cuasing the actors wo work fast and lose some of their excitment ! How stupid.

I'm of two minds about this. I really like both leads, and for some reason I think they'll be a good pairing. On the other hand . . .

"given how much this drama sounds like Bad Guy anyway I do wish he’d go in the opposite direction with styling himself."

This times 1,000! IMO, anything they can do distance themselves from "Bad Guy" would serve them well. I still haven't recovered from that travesty of an ending (which, let's face it, didn't have anything to do with KNG's going for military leave, and everything to do with crap writing). And I think he looks better without the pornstache anyway.

Well, I'll give it a shot.

I lurve you, KNG - but that haircut's not doing it for me. I'm one of the few who can take your pornstache, but not the haircut.

I love you, Kim Nam Gil, but yeah, the pornstache needs to go. And the haircut is sucky. He's not classically good-looking, so he has to play up his sex appeal with long hair and appropriate facial hair, if any (in my view, b if he does a stache, he's got to balance with a goatee).

Why does he like his staches so much anyway? Bidam was hot without.

Oh, stop griping about the mustache already! He's back! What I love about him is not just his looks but how he just owns every scene. He walks into a frame and you just can't take your eyes off him. How he can convey multiple emotions in a single close up. That he can do both funny and tragic. That he can make even the most despicable character relatable. And that voice that goes straight to your heart?

Yes, Bad Guy was the crappiest show I watched twice. Do I regret it? Not in the least.

Those are very good points. There may be better looking men, but who notices them with Kim Nam Gil around? He rocks.

Sohn ye jin is so pretty. With her splendid acting track record I think I will like this pairing more than kng-hgi in bad guy.

Excited. Cannot wait to see this pairing even if it sounds like they are going to stress me the hell out. But there is room for sizzle right? Omg, please let there be sizzle!

Also, I like the haircut, KNG! He's never had this before and makes him look like theeee straightest laced person ever, even though he isn't of course, haha. I like that.
