Who wants to be a Pinocchio

javabeans: Hey, have you seen this? Here, watch the teaser for Pinocchio.

girlfriday: That… was the lamest thing ever.

javabeans: Wasn’t it? I just had to share.

girlfriday: Twenty-four seconds, please.

javabeans: Er?

girlfriday: That’s the time you now owe me.

javabeans: Hey, I can’t be held responsible for all the bad suggestions of mine you choose to follow.

girlfriday: Yes, but I have the right to whine about it afterward.

javabeans: But also, what was that trailer even about? You give me some lame Jeopardy question and that’s it?

girlfriday: No, no, it was about HAIR. That’s literally all I got.

javabeans: But, you show us that hair and then… nothing? Who the hell cares about some trivia question about the symptoms of lying and hiccups, completely ignoring the fact that you have Lee Jong-seok sitting right there looking like a janitor’s mop?

girlfriday: Or that it’s about reporters, and that the cast contains people like Park Shin-hye, Lee Yubi, and Kim Young-kwang?

javabeans: Or that the drama’s main promo image is a Pinocchio puppet, which surely ties into the plot somehow? Apparently he’s living a lie with a false name, and falls in love with a woman who can’t lie.

girlfriday: Of course he’s a liar, because she can’t lie — have we ever met a couple in dramaland that wasn’t made up of opposites?

javabeans: Not that we get any of this from the preview!

girlfriday: I wish we had, because at least it’s more interesting than a quiz question about Pinocchio syndrome, which by the way, he doesn’t even answer. Why did they even bother making a teaser with Lee Jong-seok in it if Lee Jong-seok wasn’t going to speak?

javabeans: Okay I can’t argue with that, because clearly that was the only reason to even bother clicking play. Without him, we’re just watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

girlfriday: Don’t forget the nanosecond flashback to his fateful meeting with the heroine, which I can’t even take seriously because of that hair. He looks a little bit like a Raggedy Andy doll.

javabeans: Maybe he’s supposed to look like a doll! Maybe he just wants to be a real boy?

girlfriday: Like this video just wants to be a real teaser?

Just, no. He actually has very delicate features, and that hair overpowers his facial structure. All you notice is that mop of hair and his black button eyes - Raggedy Andy doll, indeed, or maybe even Raggedy Ann.

It's like LJS's hair gets worse and worse with every drama he does. I don't want his golden days to be back when his hair looked good.

Pretty sure there will be a "transformation" in the drama like there always is one, guess I shouldn't get too hung up on the hair.

The only model turns actor that I found attractive is Kim Woo Bin. Sung Joon, he and another one (I forgot his name) aren't handsome or attractive. Yes they have long legs but other than that…just so..so..They are so overrated. Especially LJS, I just feel something strange in his face. Plastic surgery? Not sure…But I do realize his acting is quite good.

Yes, yes, a different league altogether.

Rim is no longer an actor.

He's just a walking, talking giant CheeseMan.

0

He's so cheesy, they could use him to set mousetraps.

(but We Got Married is making me seriously regret that the LTE couple pairing will probably never get together for real in a drama now that they've been pretend married)

0

high stakes indeed! But it's hard to top SJR, I agree!(mianhaeyo, CSW Oppa)

@pogo: I'd love to see them act together for reals (more skinship? Well, the script says so...). But otherwise, I'll take lots of couple CFs. Lots of them.

0

Well I love all the names you mentioned Woo Bin, Jong Seok and Sung Joon and find them all attractive in their own way, and i'm really curious about the guy whose name you forgot, but yeah like the comments down below Korean model turned actors in their 30's look way hotter than their younger counterparts, Song Jae Rim, Cha Seung Won, Lee Jun Ki, wow those are some delicious looking men.

I am hoping that's just a bad wig. Because that is one bad hair do.. Poor LJS.

This is a drama where I've heard just snips about. And on one hand it could be interesting, and on the other hand... not at all.

I do want to see the pairing happening though. Just hope we get a good drama (and better hair!) surrounding it.

Janitor hair mop. That got me into stitches. Who cares abt the teaser?

In the teaser ...............
At the quiz show, Lee Jong-suk has to answer the question, “What is the name of the syndrome that occurs when people lie? This syndrome occurs due to dysautonomia.”............

The first teaser introduces the main theme when Choi Do Pal (LJS) is reminded of Choi In Ha (PSH) who suffers from the syndrome and hiccups every time she lies............hence the flashback.

As far as appearance is considered that's only a fraction of Choi Do Pal's character . It does not tell the story but just teases us into thinking about him more .

With the writer and director of IHYV behind it we can be sure of an interesting story behind the teaser......definitely worth looking into.

Well, I thought it was a clever way of introducing the title of the show. 'What's the name of that syndrome?' 'Pinocchio'

Dalpo's character is supposed to look ragged and therefore no one can look passed his looks to see his intelligence. Did you guys not read the description of his character? But I guess mission accomplished since no one here can look passed is looks.

Okay, I agree with everyone about the hair. Its just not a good look but from what I've read in other places he's suppose to look ugly/bad so I totally get why they went for that hairstyle... Seriously didn't get the point of the teaser just poorly made and doesn't really do much but show us Lee Jong Seok bad hairstyle... But I like the fact that we learn a little bit more about Lee Jong Seok's character. I didn't know he was suppose to be a liar so that just makes this drama more interesting... but even with a bad teaser and bad haircut I still love Lee Jong Seok.

Well thats the end of my rant =)

Oh, my god! When I watched the video I thought hmm, this is going to have a cross-dressing plot. Seriously. That's what I thought until I read your discussion afterwards, looked again, and only then saw Lee Jong-seok features. He makes a pretty girl trying to pass herself off as a boy. Victor/Victoria in reverse?
