Kim Woo-bin and Kang Haneul turn Twenty

I wasn’t all that excited about the prospect of Kim Woo-bin and Kang Haneul reverting to their Heirs characters (*shudder, twitch, shudder*), but thankfully there isn’t a shred of that here. Their new coming-of-age comedy Twenty is a pretty honest look at real guys and real friendships at the age of twenty — in all their embarrassing, immature, flawed glory. Along with 2PM idol Lee Junho (Cold Eyes), the trio of boys face adulthood together and tackle growing up in ridiculous but relatable ways.

Twenty is as low-concept a movie as they come — it’s really just about three boys dealing with life at age twenty, but judging from the character trailer, there’s a lot of situational comedy to be mined from three hapless manchildren. It doesn’t hurt that they’re so adorable, but we already knew that when these guys were cast.

Kim Woo-bin stars as the popular one — the guy blessed with good looks and charm who can get any girl he wants. Only, popularity is all he has, because he’s an unemployed slacker who didn’t go to college, doesn’t have any prospects or goals, and has no life skills to speak of. Pfft, what a winner. In the teaser, he attempts to negotiate allowance money out of his parents, then throws a tantrum like a giant six-foot-tall baby.

Junho plays the one who’s only skilled at making money, and doesn’t know how to do anything else. In the teaser, they’re back in high school when he tells his buddies that his family went bankrupt, and wonders why they’re the ones looking somber. Kim Woo-bin deadpans that they were just trying to set the mood, then he and Kang Haneul crack up like a pair of idiots. Junho’s character dreams of being a manhwa artist, and works every part-time job under the sun while studying to retake the college entrance exam.

Kang Haneul plays the one who only knows how to study, which seems like the character he always plays. He’s a college freshman with plans to work for a big corporation (Past Baek-ki?), who’s the smart, mild-mannered, perfect boy-next-door… until he drinks. Filled with liquor, he does a complete 180-degree turn into someone else entirely. In the teaser, he goes on a date with Min Hyo-rin (Persevere, Gu Hae-ra) and gets WAY too excited at the prospect of sleeping with her, slapping himself for even thinking dirty thoughts, which of course just makes him look crazy.

The movie’s tagline is: “At our most embarrassing moments, we were together.” I have a feeling those embarrassing moments will be fun for all of us. Jung So-min (Big Man) and Lee Yubi (Pinocchio) co-star (YAY!).

Twenty hits theaters in March.

This looks like good fun.

Not sure any film festival in London would pick this up though, it's probably too lightweight and fun. Still, keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, it could pop at Terracotta later this summer but they screen around 25 Asian films, of which only 3 or 4 are Korean. So, we'd have to be really lucky. I suppose a better chance at the London Korean Film Festival but that's faaar off (Oct/Nov) and I hope not to be in London anymore then!

Thank you Girlfriday for feeding my Twenty obsession. I thought this movie would never see the light of day, and since it was announced I've been waiting on pins and needles for it to come out. Excitement is an understatement. I only hope I can watch it some time before the year ends. Bromance, romance, Kim Woo-bin, Jung So-min and Kang Ha-neul, it really doesn't get better than this.

Lol, I know. It means "there was a girl" it's the opening line from one of my favourite songs from Mohabbatein. "Ek ladhki thi deewaani si..." Bollywood was my first love in non-English entertainment.

Hahaha...... I watched the trailer several times already and it still made me LOL everytime. :D

I was surprised at Kim Woo-bin, the way he plays this idiotic manchild. Seems like he goes all out.

Okay, I can't get enough of that school cafetaria scene and Kang Ha-neul slapping himself...... :D

I wished this was a drama though. Kim Woo Bin reunites with Lee Yu Bi which just brings a smile to my face automatically thinking how cute they were in Vampire Idol. Their bromance looks fun!

This looks fun to watch and I'm always up for a good laugh. There is a certain charm about the simplicity of movies that don't aim for more than what they can offer. It's also a nice change to see this "embarrassing" side of the boys

This movie looks so fun! Though somewhat similar, this seems to be a complete diversion from their previous. I am most excited for Woo Bin because I find it ridiculous and adorable to see him act like a man-child. Haha.

I love the cast so I have high hopes for this movie. :)

Is this the Jang Baekki 1.0 aka Misaeng's prequel? (Joking!)

I love the whole movie's atmosphere so far, and I gotta give some credits for the design too! The fonts, color tone and posters are all awesome, totally fit the twenty theme.

This seems like a character-driven movie and I hope it will really turn out that way. There's nothing more important than heart-stealing characters in coming-of-age film! And I hope the story will explore deeply or else it'll just be another teenage drama.

Anticipating!

For a minute I was wondering which one was KH LOL. He looks so different without glasses or his hair done in that certain way or ya know with a smile on his face. BTW can I just say that Woo Bin in anything that shows him being a smiley goof makes me all twitterpated.
