Ho-gu’s foolish love takes off

The main poster is out for tvN’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Ho-gu’s Love, featuring our lead Choi Woo-shik (Pride and Prejudice) looking every bit the fool in love that his name suggests. His name Ho-gu means all sorts of things, but it’s clear that the Ho-gu we’ll meet will be an unabashed fool for one girl.

Ho-gu’s affections will be directed at UEE (Gold Rainbow) who plays the “swimming goddess,” our national athlete heroine and Ho-gu’s first love. For some reason she’s featured in more of a ballerina getup for the poster, but the point is more her floating, haloed, mythic goddess status, and Ho-gu’s hilarious drunk-on-love pose. The copy reads: “I am a Ho-gu/fool in love.”

The rest of the stills come from a cast photo shoot with @star1, which includes second lead Im Seul-ong (Hotel King), who plays a rival for UEE’s affections. He’s a sharp lawyer, whereas Ho-gu has failed the civil service exam for going on seven years now, but the seemingly perfect lawyer will have a hapless side to him as well. Lee Soo-kyung (Coin Locker Girl) plays Ho-gu’s twin sister, a girl who knows all the tips and tricks to dating… which she learned from reading books.

The drama is a webtoon adaptation from the creator of the webtoon that Flower Boy Next Door was based on, and PD Pyo Min-soo (You’ve Fallen For Me, Coffee House) will be at the helm.

I’m really eager about this drama for two main reasons: It comes from the writer of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (and I LOVED Flower Boy Ramyun Shop), and it features a story about an average boy with a lifelong crush on his dream girl, which is rarer and a nice change-up from all the chaebol-Candy setups we get in dramaland. It’ll be about the blurry lines between friends and crushes, and (hopefully) the merits of the adorable unassuming loser with a penchant for matching tracksuits, and how he wins the girl of his dreams.

Ho-gu’s Love follows Valid Love and premieres February 9 on tvN.

Hehe how tall is Uee, that even bending down she's still taller than the other girl in the poster.

Uee is about 5'8. She's among tallest of the idols girls.

Her legs are getting so skinny. I wish she wouldn't diet so much bc her honey thighs are gone. Citizens were complaining before about her weight. She looks fine all the time. Netizens always want bony girls. I was afraid Uee would fall into that.

Anyway, I would love this more if it was with Yeon Jin Woo. I always had a soft spot for him and Uee since OB.

Looks like it will be fun, it's good they announced the male lead first coz if it was the other way round, he wouldn't have gotten as much attention. But who am I kidding right now my mind is occupied by healer episode 13 and this is keeping me from giving in and watching it raw. So back to refreshing Db eagerly anticipating the recap and stopping myself from commenting about Healer on non healer threads.biane.

I gave up and watched the first 20min raw once it's out before stopping myself and forcing myself to go and catch up on sleep, lol :p

Nice posters. Premise sounds cute and love the guys when they act dorky. Look forward to seeing Im Seung-ong in goofy mode like a few places in "Personal Taste". Choi Woo-sik is such a natural, he was unforgettable in "Pride & Prejudice". Thanks for the post!

Oh my goodness, I didn't even know that was him in Personal Taste until you mentioned it. His character was hilarious. That would be so cute if he was like that here too.

I was always a bit puzzled about all the acclaim/buzz that UEE had gotten (yeah, I know - "honey thighs") for her looks when she isn't what comes to mind for the most attractive female idols (she's not even among the top for most attractive in AF, including departed members), but she really looks good in these promo shots.

Seems like a nice combo of good cast and good writer.

"it features a story about an average boy with a lifelong crush on his dream girl"

Sounds a lot like "Love Cells" to me. Well, if it's anything as cute, I'm definitely tuning in!

Can't wait to see this, promising teasers already, hope it won't be disappointing.
Anyway, is that UEE ? Gosh.. she looked too much different from the last time I saw her in You're beautiful (you know, the one with Jang Geun Suk and Park Shin Hye) I don't know whether it is make up or another surgery. But you guys try to compare her pictures.

Tvn Rom-con and UEE,yes please. I've always liked UEE in all the dramas she's worked and though the male lead is new to me.He looks cute and i hope they have a good chemistry.
Also isn't UEE's father a sportsman?!! Coach or swimmer i cant remember and she too was a competative swimmer in her school days,so this drama role sounds suitable for her
