The ’70s make a comeback in Trot Lovers’ sing-along teaser

That’s… a dog collar, right? Well I can’t say I won’t be rooting for a girl who knows how to tame her puppy. I really hope Trot Lovers has a solid story behind it, because it’s got happy fizzy fun written all over it, with adorable leads and song remakes that even Grandma can sing along to. In fact our parents are likely to get more of the song references than we are, but that’s okay — the thing about trot is that it’s pretty much comfort food.

The first teaser already features a snippet of Jung Eun-ji singing Nam Jin’s “With You” (1972), set to a silly noraebang-style sing-along music video of her and Ji Hyun-woo acting out the love song’s refrain: “We’ll build a picturesque house on a grassy plain / I want to live a hundred years with the one I love / If it’s with you I like it / If I get to live with you / I want to live a hundred years.” They’re so cute together, and Jung Eun-ji really sells the sass and charm even in the thirty-second teaser. I think this is going to be a great role for her.

As for the seventies style, Ji Hyun-woo really got the short end of the stick there (not that his character’s present-day style is faring any better, mind you), but when they put their show-stopper sequin outfits on, they look pretty snazzy. I still don’t understand how his character is a snobby star musician and dresses like he doesn’t understand what clothes are for, but maybe he’ll get an extended storyline where he gets into a fight with his stylist and this is how she gets her slow revenge.

A rom-com about a wannabe starlet and a haughty big shot hero doesn’t sound all that interesting on its own, but throw in an old-school trot remake every episode, and suddenly the drama has vintage throwback flair. If the teaser is any indication, they’ll be making full use of their musically-inclined cast at every opportunity. More catchy tunes for us!

Trot Lovers follows Big Man and premieres June 23.

I didn't mind a lot of Tannie's sweaters actually, I even love and would want that baby blue one he wore when he escaped from home in episode 15. The only clothes I want to burn are that jacket he wore when he returned to Korea and that pink angorra sweater-jacket thing. Although now that I think about it, that sweater-jacket would look great on me but let's burn it if Tannie wears it.

I'm hot to trot for Hot to Trot~ I'm already in love with it.

Darn you, girlfriday~ I hate it when you and jb come up with awesome ideas for dramas, leaving me with intense disappointment that those ideas aren't gonna be (or weren't) realized. A stylist getting revenge on a pompous client would be such a fun storyline! Whatever the story is, that Hawaiian getup that JHW's wearing needs to get up and go!

OMG.

Hot to Trot or Hot for Trot would have been such a punnier, better name than Trot Lovers! Now I'll forever wish that this drama had that name instead. It would have been so perfect!

The song is so familiar, I swear I've heard it before. But not in a drama, a movie perhaps?

Yes! I loved how that song was used in CYHMH. The whole family sang that song to cheer each other up.

If I didn't read at the beginning that the lead actor was Ji Hyun Woo then I would have totally said that he's Rain no matter WHAT!!! He looks so much like Young Jae (Full House) with that long hairdo <3

DAW. I'm actually so excited for this. There have been quite a few series of late that showcase endearing leads that bring the drama's quality up from mediocre to memorable so hopefully this drama can succeed in this, at the very least.

Oh Ji Hyun-Woo. Luckily I think most of his appeal comes forth when he's in action (i.e. the way he speaks & the little faces he makes) so I don't think his fashion will detract from his sexiness. As long as that 70's hair stays forever in that trailer, I think he'll definitely still have me swooning still. I do wish his hair wasn't colored that way though...

I'm really excited for this drama! Not being Korean, I certainly didn't grow up with "trot" music, but every time I hear it on a drama I actually find it really appealing.

Seeing a smiling Shin Sung Rok just makes me wonder when he's going to turn 180 degrees on us and turn into a pathological killer once again, who knows, those sequins sure can have quite an effect on you...
