First teaser and more stills for Pretty Man

The first teaser is out for Pretty Man, along with a few more couple stills, and while I still don’t really know what the story is going to be (other than one man going after ten women using his extensive “dating know-how”), the tone looks pretty cute. Light, fluffy, and hopefully zippy.

The teaser’s pretty brief, and just shows us the moment our average heroine (IU) first laid eyes on the prettiest boy she ever did see (Jang Geun-seok), back when she was a middle schooler and he was in high school. I love that he gets the shampoo hair model edit, wavy locks flowing in the breeze.

As far as rivals go she’s got a pretty formidable one in the older, richer, more glamorous Han Chae-young, but something tells me our main couple is going to have all the chemistry. At least I hope so; I tend to groan when we have an ordinary heroine pining so one-sidedly over the hero, but I’m crossing my fingers that IU can pull it off while being more endearing than pathetic. The teaser makes reference to Jang Geun-seok employing his knowledge of women to win them over in “the pretty man’s dizzying dating game—dating to achieve success.” Details are, as ever, deliberately vague (booo—I can’t get excited about it if I don’t know what it is!).

Pretty Man premieres on November 20.

If she's going up against Han Chae-young, she's a quite a mountain . . . er, pair of moun- . . . er, some formidable terrain to conquer.

hell ya, check out the tiny ponytail at the back..... getting the hwang tae kyung vibe...

all i see is lots of hair gel (quite possibly a few bobby pins) masking in the so-called 'short hair'. why doesn't this guy cut to normal length, as in man's haircut?

when I was scrolling down the pictures, a single thought came to my mind, are there three female leads in this drama, because this dude from nowhere looks like a dude.
They can make a drama, on how to have smooth, silky wavy hair staring Jang Geun-seok as the female lead.

Jang Geun Suk is blessed with natural good looks. Is it a sin? You antis just have to find fault in him by hook or crook, my goodness, can't you find something better to do with your life?

@fullofherself -- yuh you want to indirectly say he's full of himself, well at least he is famous. You what have you got? Boring life "oh i've got nothing better to do, better be the best troll".

Why are we defining males by the length of their hair? I hate all this whining about his hair length and blablabla.

Ugh. I think Jang Geun-Seuk is in love with this particular style. Oh, what will I give if he gut his hair. I just want a new look for him! I like him and all but he ALWAYS look like this in his recent dramas. He didn't give a new vide or something.

I don't think he cut his hair yet. But normally the hairstyle will change when they film more eps. Perhaps to show the change in his character. I don't really mind if he cuts his hair. But if he didn't, i hope he ties his hair up like the one with HCY.

Although this isn't the genre that the korea public likes, the rating will not be too high but somehow i think i will like it. This drama seems cute. Both HCY n IU seems to have chemistry with JGS. IU's character is a tough one to act. I look forward to her performance.

Not much was shown in the teaser , probably because they did not manage to film much material as they only started filming very recently.

I thought so too, but looking at the picture of him facing Han Chae Young, you can see that while a little bit is pulled back, a lot of length is gone, particularly at the base of the head.

I'd like to comment on JGS face. Somebody said that he got angular face as after jaw reduction. At first I tried not to believe it then I did study his face through YAB , LR and many later stills. My finding, his jaw is now different in shape, though a bit. Back then in YAB he got smooth vertical jaw to triangle chin. Now that jaw has gone and become more angular, since LR or maybe MSON. It is obvious when he looks straight to camera. I know SK people are okay with ps but I am just over curious, I wish my - the not scientific-finding is totally wrong. Really really do. Please anyone bend my opinion.

I thought the same as you. Then some people posted a series of pictures and first I was sure he did it then they kept saying he was just thinner now and I don't know what to think anymore. But I really really wish he didn't because he looked soooo much better before and if it's just weight he can always get it back just like his eyebrows. :)

He's just gained weight. JGS has said in the past that he gains weight in his face first.

are you guys kidding me? It takes more than a year to heal for jaw reduction, and everyone in korea now accepts it as a severely traumatic surgery. He has consistently been in magazine spreads and on t.v. and so he couldn't have healed that fast.

He definitely cut his hair, but it's also definitely not as short as we expected - or rather wanted. He looks decent though. Compared to that look he had when he was boarding the bus. God that's awful!

I like IU, but she looks a lot lot younger than him. But if I end up seeing this, I'm probably going to be in her ship because underdogs (I guess I can call her that?) are my thing. Can't believe this is coming out in 2 weeks. I feel like it just finalized its cast so recently.

don't throw rocks at me yet, it is just a surface-level comparison, but this reminds me of and seems slightly like a teen-romcom-manhwa type version of Que Sera Sera.. Hot, assy main guy who dates rich women to make himself look cooler and more successful, (supposedly) plain, innocent, fashion-unconscious heroine who falls for His-AssyMajesty first, the cool, successful arrogant 2nd heroine.. i mean i am not sayin it is the same story, just that the characterisations on paper sound alike..

So this is going up in the same time-slot as Heirs? And we have a Jang Geun-seok vs. Park Shin-hye ratings battle?

It looks cute and fun, but there's no telling how that'll play out - pure rom-coms/trendies don't always do that well in ratings (both IHYV and Master's Sun had the procedural/supernatural element to add to the rom-com factor though IHYV sucked at its law), and Secret isn't a genre match.

Required fields are marked *

yea, me too. i always adore the hero for his "manly" quality and i don't feel that in JGS.

hm, i usually watch the drama based on the actor and actress (let's say, like Master's Sun, i interested so much in the beginning because of So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin and i'm wondering their chemistry) and then based on the story.

so, first: Pretty Man have the star BUT i doubt about their acting skill and chemistry; and second: the story sounds fun yet so . . hm i don't know maybe it just me who is not exciting.

i hope this drama goes well.
let's see for the first episode!

thanks for keeping us the updated!

lol, so true. What matters is how different his portrayal of the character is versus the other ones with the same appearance (Dokgo Mate vs Kang Mu Kyul vs. Chinese beverage CM with Park Min Young).

anyways, to those who are asking, he didn't cut his hair yet. Even him, he asked it via twitter "so when will I cut my hair?...kkk". But of course, the cutting of hair is expected since he also mentioned it, that he will cut his hair really short this time..so for the hair..need to patiently wait same time while waiting for the drama. kkk

OK, did Han Chae-young do something to her face? She looks recognizable, but there is something different that I can't just pinpoint.

I think the last time HCY has chemistry with someone was with Jae-hee.

This drama looks like FUN. I'm excited for it since it'll be a good replacement/antidote to melo Secret.

Han Chae-young is freaking gorgeous. I love that picture of her sitting in the chair all classy, elegant, and badass like. I have the feeling she won't be like the usual annoying female second leads. Instead, she'll probably be like Han Chae-ah's Yoo Kyeong from Mirae's Choice: interesting and easy to root for whatever she does.

The hair complaints are getting a little annoying...yes, the guy didn't look good with the female-like long tresses so even I was hoping for a haircut but if he pulls his hair back like this to give a faux-haircut like appearance, I can accept that too. It looks good on him.

I really hope this turns out good. After Secrets (which this follows) and it's emotional roller coaster, and the pap that is Heirs I am ready for something a bit lighter but not stupid. I like IU, but I really don't know much about the other actors.

This drama should be titled: Yeppeun Yeoja (Pretty Woman, refer to Han Chae-young).
I love seeing her, but why is she kept falling back to the Evil Second Lead role (as in Genius Ad, Lee Tae Baek and loooooong time ago in Autumn Love Story with Song Hye Kyo, Won Bin and Song Seung Heon)?
I miss her role in Sassy Girl Chun Hyang.

yes this shw is not likely to hv ratings hooting thru tge roof.it is clearly made for export.with JGS,it wld hv been sold to japan n south east asia,no questions asked.HCY is big in China,so they hv got their costs covered. IU shd b cute,JGS has a feminine face but his voice makes up for e manly allure.will certainly watched it,hope e script is decent.

I am so excited to see JGS in a new drama! I am sure this will be loads of fun. And I can feel the chemistry between JGS and IU. I also don't think he already cut his hair; I am all up for it just so he can have a new look but if he decides not to, he still looks gorgeous.

I think the wrong lead cut their hair! What happened to IU's glorious long locks?

The length of JGS's hair is not the problem - it is the style that he wears it with is the problem. He actually looks very handsome in the style that was blowing in the non-wind in the bus although it is long. The comb-over style is just not for him.

Plot seems thin right now but just want to see IU in short cute hair style.
