Oh Ji-ho lines up opposites-attract romantic comedy

With Oh Ji-ho’s upcoming cable drama Ghost Detective getting pushed back till next year, he’s made some time in his schedule to take on a movie before then. Titled Rude Woman, Harsh Man, it sounds like a cute romance with just enough quirk to liven up a standard opposites-attract setup.

The movie unfolds upon the two leads, both doctors, opening up their own clinics on the same floor of a building: She’s a urologist with a “kiss allergy,” and he’s an OBGYN with some unspecified physical deformity. Ha. Of course that’s the setup; why merely have opposites when you can have completely diametric ones? The details of Oh Ji-ho’s particular ailment are undisclosed, but he’s described as having a reason for needing to be utterly abrasive toward women. Which, uh, suggests that maybe you went into the wrong line of work?

The characters both harbor wounds, but they’ll find a way to heal each other as their relationship progresses in a bright and cheerful story. Cute. Despite Oh Ji-ho’s reputation as a “beast man” (as in, masculine and muscled a la Chuno), I find him really endearing when he plays counter to that image — sometimes he can be downright meek, which is pretty adorable. So I’m looking forward to him being both rough-mannered and offbeat — I’d like to see how he reacts when he comes up against that kiss allergy firsthand. Heh. So maybe it’s not the most realistic setup, but hopefully it’ll provide the laughs.

Rude Woman, Harsh Man will begin filming in mid-December. Oh’s drama Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-young will air on OCN early next year.

Ha! She's an urologist & he has a difformity that he can't reveal? Maybe he has a phimosis... (I will let people google that). As for healing from a kiss allergy, he should be able to do that. ;) Win-win

Reminds me of this Jdrama (something to do with a massage business full of pretty masseurs) and the main lead who had god's hands for best massaging capabilities but had phimosis....it was hilarious.

Yep. Boys Esthe. I thought that the topic was handled quite well. It would be nice if a K movie could be as funny and respectful. Let's wait and see.

Aren't most Korean men cut anyway? And a phimosis is nothing that can't be dealt with, especially if you are an educated doctor.
Whatever it is, I fear it will be a little ridiculous. A man not living his sexual needs being an OBGYN? If he's not gay this should be torture.
Not sold on this idea, sorry.

I don't say that it's what will be used in the movie (I"m not a fortune teller) but I wouldn't be surprised: Subtlety is not always their forte in K rom-com movies and the specialty of the woman is suspicious.
FYI, not all Korean men are circumcized:

Also, it's said that doctors are the worst patients ever and also that they don't take care of their health as well as they should...

Interesting article. Thanks for the link. In Canada it's getting difficult to find a doctor to perform a circumcision for non-medical or religious reasons these days. I had no idea that the rates were so high in South Korea.

He might also have a Ist degree hypospadias left surgically untreated which would be cosmetic but could make him feel shy with the ladies.

He was born to play light romantic comedy. I loved him in Queen of Housewives and Couple or Trouble. He just oozes warmth and lovability on camera. Plus he is a natural acting with children. He looks like he really likes kids.

Sounds very funny! He's one of my absolute favorites. Oh Ji Ho has a broad range of talents that spans melodramas, action films and most definitely comedy. I'm cracking up imagining the 'deformity' to be a 'tail' like the friend in 'Shallow Hal'. But we'll have to wait and see. Or NOT see, depending what it really is.

I wonder who is leading lady is?

Eh, I don't see him as a "beast man" at all. He was so adorable and lovable in Fantasy Couple that he should do romantic comedies more often. There were some scenes where his character showed his masculinity but when he was with the children, he was so adorable.
