Iron Man’s hero and his literal knives of pain

I knew that the description of upcoming KBS drama Iron Man had the hero’s character, played by Lee Dong-wook, somehow painfully sprouting knives from his body—I knew this, all the articles said so—and yet, I was still clinging to the hope that maybe, just maybe, those knives would be a figure of speech. Say, they could be references to the heart-wounds inflicted by revenge-fury, or shards of angst held close to one’s figurative bosom. You know, a metaphor.

I guess they’re not.

Here are the drama’s teaser posters and videos, wherein Lee Dong-wook is the man whose body harbors actual knives of pain, who learns about the emotion called love and gradually matures through his relationship with the kind heroine played by Shin Se-kyung. What that has to do with spikes shooting out of his trunk, I have no idea. (I’ll harbor a guess—and this is only my guess!—that the knives could somehow be physical manifestations of his emotions, like his version of the Hulk going green and bouncy. But who knows.)

Ironically (?), there are stills of Lee Dong-wook at a boxing gym below because the character “throws punches and kicks and adds curses on top to cover up his scars.” It seems there’s a quicker way for Knife Man to cut down (hur) his opponents than fists and feet, but maybe efficiency isn’t his goal.

According to the producers, it should become quite clear why the drama is titled Iron Man once the show starts, as it is very appropriate to the story. (Please just don’t tell me he’s Iron Man because the knives are made of iron. Please be more clever than that!) The drama will premiere on Wednesday, September 10, and airs following Joseon Gunman.

I will laugh my head off if this ends up being the biggest hit of the year LOL

But nah, it's so gonna be a trainwreck.
NOTHING about this gives me even a little hope of it being semi-decent.
Kinda wanna tune in (for like a second) to see how bad it manages to be. I wonder if it'll be so bad that it's kinda hilarious (Dr.Jin) or just WTF bad (Fashion King). Please gets Heads to recap it! XD

I will laugh so hard if this somehow, I don't know how it possibly could, turns into the best drama in years.

On the other hand if I was a betting man, I'd bet massive amounts of money that it turns into one of the worst dramas ever in the history of the world, but alas I'm not.

Shin Se-kyung should quit trying to act and just be a model I bet she'd be a lovely model.

I don't know why I find this so ridiculous when I have no trouble with Wolverine or Edward Scissorhands. But it looks idiotic.

Edward Scissorhands came to mind, too, and I liked that one. Let's hope this one has at least a fraction of the substance I felt E.S. had.

Wait, where are his scars? Like, his literal ones from all the knives. We know that Wolverine doesn't have any scars because of his healing factor...so does Iron Man have a healing factor, too? Is he going to live forever falling in love with each doppleganger of his first love who he accidentally killed with his torso knives?

I'm guessing they are going to go full on Beauty and the Beast with this one. Curse that can only be broken through the power of love and all that.

I feel so sorry for everyone involved in this trainwreck. Who even green lighted this drama??? I'm so confused.

What makes you think this is going to be a trainwreck? If Edge of Tomorrow taught us anything, you shouldn't judge a drama/movie based off the trailer.

I'm still sad Edge of Tomorrow wasn't more popular, alot of people missed out because it was AWESOME! Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt did a great job and for once a female lead was kicking butt and taking names. I tried to tell as many people as I could about it but I guess it was too late. I only watched because of word of mouth, hadn't even heard of it before then.

edge of tomorrow, yeah, I did't expect it to turn out so good, I watched for tom cruise and had low expectation, but definitely deserve one of the best movies of 2014

This is a Trainwreck of mega proportions. The only think I can say is that there will be no piggyback rides, no front hugs back hugs of any mind, no doing the dirty making out scenes, maybe only kiss scenes provided the knives don't protrude out of excitement and kills her I'm the midst of kissing

Heh, so far so bad. But part of me is hoping it'll turn out to be pure awesomeness once it airs - just to throw it back into our faces.

Could it be that he is just mouthy and throws "barbs"? That's the only thing I can think of instead of knives really physically coming out of his body? I'm not very hopeful about this drama because I have yet to like any drama that has SSK in it. In fact I think I've sadly hated every drama she has been in. She is beautiful but I just hate her acting somehow and she has not improved :( the weird thing is she gets great male leads.

OMG they actually went for it all the way !!!!! I could not help the smirk at the first teaser. I hope the entire knives thingy is going to be kept to a minimum because that just doesn't look promising. If they concentrate more on the humain aspect of the drama it might be interesting... BIG BIG BIG maybe there, but then again I have a bit of a problem with SSK acting in general so I don't think i will stick around too long for this one, I still cannot believe they went for actual knives !!! Well let's see if we get a surprise out of it :D.

I genuinely beleive this is going to be a funny drama, intentionally or unintentionally is the real question. Knives shooting out of a guy when they are making out sounds like such a fun idea. Maybe it kills her and she comes back as ghost and he can finally be with her without touching her.
Then again it may just be wishful thinking on my part to justify Shin Se-kyeon's dead expressions.

This visual looks too literal! I'm a fan of LDW and his work in the past.. but I'm not sure if this was a good choice for him. Not so promising... very disappointing!

Lee DongWook looks like blue spikey shell from Mario Kart with abs... add a few more spikes and make him make some cute faces then he'd almost look like a porcupine or hedgehog

omg, that first trailer was unintentionally hilarious. The serious look on his face as he climbed the skyscraper's windows- he looked like a ridiculous man-porcupine with his blades, lol. LDW needs to stop taking on damaged characters for a while. It isn't working for him, he should maybe go for comedy. I love him, he is a good actor, but i feel like i have seen anguish contorting his face- i have seen his stoic yet pained face--his sorrowful or leaden eyes- enough to last me for a couple of years at least. The time where i was able to enjoy him emote on screen was in "bittersweet life."

Don't even get me started on Shin Se Kyung, she downright gives me anxiety. After watching her on High kick 2, and then fashion king and experiencing tremendous rage, she puts fear in me- fear that i may end up hemorrhaging from banging my head against the wall as i watch her (and the fact that i cannot stop myself from scanning for (proof of) life in her face like maybe if i dicipher what's going on underneath that mask then i'd finally discover the answer to everything except there is nothing, life is meannnnninglessssssss

Pfft. HAHAHAHAHA. LDW needs to re-think about his choices. Why did you have to do this? Were you forced? HAHAHAHA. I'm gonna print those silly posters so whenever I'm in a bad mood, I'd just have to stare at them and I'll be happy once again.
