Pre-wedding hijinks for four couples… and Joo Ji-hoon
by | September 15, 2013 | 42 Comments

Here’s a peek at the new omnibus film from Naked Kitchen’s director Hong Ji-young called Night Before the Wedding, about four couples all headed down the aisle. They face a panoply of disaster leading up to D-Day, from past boyfriends, surprise babies, impotence issues, and a fateful weekend with Joo Ji-hoon (Five Fingers). If you saw Naked Kitchen, you’re thinking the same thing I am: The bride-to-be who runs into Joo Ji-hoon is doooooomed. Woof.

The romantic comedy (also going by the alternate title Marriage Blue) will weave in and out of four couples’ final week leading up to D-Day. The movie’s tagline is: “Just because the invitation is printed doesn’t mean you’re married!” Kim Kang-woo (Psychometry) and Kim Hyo-jin (The End and the Beginning) play a couple who broke up once and got back together, and then a week before their wedding find out about past lovers. Kim Kang-woo turns into this petty neurotic groom, who grows increasingly obsessed with finding out his bride’s dating past as the day draws near.

Taecyeon (Who Are You) and Lee Yeon-hee (Gu Family Book) are the marathon couple, having dated seven years before finally heading to the altar. But just before her wedding, the bride heads to Jeju Island for work, and meets Joo Ji-hoon the island travel guide. This can only end in tears. Well, hotness and then tears.

Go Jun-hee (Yawang) and Lee Hee-joon (Jeon Woo-chi) play the couple with family troubles. She’s daddy’s princess and he’s a mama’s boy, and then to top off the in-law fighting, she announces days before the wedding that she’s pregnant. Ma Dong-seok (The Flu) and Guzal Tursunova (Rooftop Prince) play the unlikely couple — he’s a sweet middle-aged bachelor florist and she’s a beautiful foreigner from Uzbekistan. His problem? Things stop working down there as D-Day approaches. Buh. Place your bets now for which couples actually make it out of this as husband and wife.

Night Before the Wedding hits theaters in November.

      yeahh !
      KIM KANG WOO ♡♡♡

      • 1.1.1 chane

        I just recently finished SoaM and I’m still having chae do woo withdrawal syndrome so definitely watching just for kim kang woo ♡♥

    Looks zany but cute. I’m actually looking forward the Ma Dong Seok couple the most since he’s been always a supporting ahjussi and these usually don’t get any lovelines.

    • 2.1 Miica

      *looking forward to

      • 2.1.1 rhienz

        Yes,Kim Kang Woo,, n I think this is his 2nd coupling with Kim Hyo Jin from their movie Taste of Money…

          Oops,sorry, this was a reply to comment #1.

      Shil-ba! (My daughter is watching Shut Up Flower Boy Band right now)

    I was thinking that the couple with ‘things not working down there’ would not make it to the D-day … although with beautiful Uzbek wife everything is possible. 🙂

  4. Rachel

    At first I thought, “who is this tanned man in the poster?” I can barely recognize Joo Ji Hoon!

    • 4.1 cheekbones

      Me, either. I don’t like the way he looks in the poster. 🙁

      • 4.1.1 queencircles

        yeah he looks terrible in the poster. It’s his weird haircut. He looks fine in that still below the trailer.

    • 4.2 pogo

      He’s only in the trailer for a second, but is unearthly levels of beautiful there.

      • 4.2.1 cherkell

        WORD. Swoon-worthy off-the-charts levels of gorgeousness. There are not enough descriptive terms in the English language to describe how HOT Ji-hoon will be in this flick! ♥♥♥

        There’s two longer trailers out on the Interwebs but I didn’t think to bookmark them. Off to the Google!

  5. Wens

    I’m totally excited about this movie, lee yeon hee and JJH – this can only end sexy!

  6. djes

    I actually feel sorry for my puppy Taec. Not only his acting is (still) awful, he always picks role which he doesn’t get the girl for hotter (and better acting) man.

    • 6.1 skelly

      Naturally, but I am surprised and happy that the idol is losing out to older, better looking actors (who can actually act).

      And it makes me laugh that he is supposed to be someone who has been dating for seven years; perhaps, if the love affair started in middle school…

      • 6.1.1 monologue

        Nah, Taec’s almost 25 already and personally I think he totally looks his age.

        You’re not wrong about his acting though lol. I hope he’s studying hard right now.

  7. CL

    Ooh, Joo Ji Hoon versus Taecyeon 🙂 Bring it on!!! Haha. This movie is going to be ridiculously funny.

  8. canxi

    LOL at Joo Ji Hoon playing the other man again! Just a relationship ruiner that guy, haha. It’s fun to watch though. Will he be singing in french again?? Because I will be there. I was already going to be, but still.

    And Kim Kang Woo and Kim Hyo Jin together again! I watched The Taste of Money and that was kind of a waste of them, so I’ll look forward to seeing them in something else together because they look nice~~

  9. Jenny

    I’d run off with JJH any day! Like I’m available right now!! wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

  10. 10 oozzeee

    the look on KKW’s face while stabbing the cake just crack me up..

  11. 11 pogo

    hey, if Joo Ji-hoon wants an unmarried/un-engaged woman to run away with for a change, I’m right here 😀

  12. 12 Waiting

    Can’t wait!

    • 12.1 pogo

      lol this username and comment combination 😀

  13. 13 maldita

    Lee Yeonhee really does get paired up with all the hot guys. So jelly. And TBH, I’d leave Taecyeon for Joo Jihoon any time anywhere.

  14. 14 Lyndia

    This sounds like a fun film! And I totally have the same iPad cover as Lee Yeon-hee’s character!

  15. 15 soprection

    Well, this certainly sounds funny. I love watching weddings come together (or fall apart) and I love hijinks so it sounds like a winning combo to me. That being said, I’m not feeling the poster at all.

  16. 16 Jjie

    I was wondering what role a pimp has in this rom com from the poster until I realize its joo Ji hoon. Oh.

  17. 17 goldeng

    O__O is that Goong’s joo ji hoon? like really? the photographer for this film must be an anti…

  18. 18 Miky

    This sounds so much fun,i’ll watch it for sure

  19. 19 MariD

    Taec.. Puppy. You need to stop doing this to yourself! I know you are not a good actor, but you are adorable, you deserve to get a girl. If you don’t get the girl here (which come on! It’s creaking Prince Shin, who would not pick him) this would be your 4th time! 4th time not getting the girl you love.

  20. 20 mj

    why cant joo ji hoon look like this in his upcoming drama god he looks sooo hot.. reminded me again why I think he is the best looking guy on the planet unlike the stills from medical drama whatever name where he looks 10 yrs older

  21. 21 ilikemangos

    ticket sales for this movie is gonna be super high.

  22. 22 Lisa-Loo-Loo

    The scene with the mom is hilarious…He’s like…”MOM!!!”, she’s all “Hello, how are you?” (with a bow to boot, hehe). Looks like fun.

  23. 23 Thao

    OMG, LYH&JJH, a nice pairing:x
    Can’t expect anything more than that!!!!! Wanna see the movie soon!!

  24. 24 Noelle

    Guzal Tursunova is sooooo pretty! Her storyline sounds hilarious lol.

  25. 25 Anxiously Anticipating Heirs

    The premise already has me giggling like a loon and I only saw a few minutes of Naked Kitchen, up to the point where Joo Ji-hoon arrives at their home, guess I have to go back and watch the rest now. This seems like fun.

  26. 26 Yaddari

    i don’t understand this…so…what kind of role Joo Ji hoon will play ? which couple story he will apper ?or he will be on all since his name was separated from all the couple name in the poster

    they made it like this in the poster

    Kim Kang Woo X Kim Hyo Jin
    Lee Yeon Hee X Ock Tacyeon
    Ma Dong Seok X Guzal
    Lee Hee Joon X Go Joon Hee

    And Joo Ji Hoon

    so in which story he will appear, im confused

    • 26.1 Yaddari

      in Lee Yeon Hee X Taecyeon Story????

      but i still confused, why they separated his name in poster and trailer

  27. 27 malika

    After naked kitchen and now night before the wedding, it seem that all the man out there don’t let their girl friends meet Ju ji hoon ^-^
    As a girl, if i meet ju ji hoon..I will be there, run to him and pick him too hahaha

  28. 28 Mabelle

    JJH in Naked Kitchen was soo Hot. he did well. i would be fall for him too, with his character and looks.

    now in this upcoming movie, yoohoo!
    hopefully this will be hilarious and hit the success
