From shark to sappy romantic in Falling for Innocence

Every time I see more promo materials for JTBC’s new heart transplant melodrama Falling for Innocence, the funnier and cuter it looks. The drama is about Jung Kyung-ho literally trading hearts with Kim So-yeon’s boyfriend (played by Jin Gu), which makes him go from a cold corporate shark that she finds insufferable, to a sappy romantic whose heart beats only for her.

A twist of fate crashes Jung Kyung-ho into the love of Kim So-yeon’s life, and after receiving Jin Gu’s heart, the hero suddenly starts to act oddly — he’s sweet, he’s kind, and he’s keenly interested in Kim So-yeon, when he was once the assiest ass who ever lived. From the teaser it looks like he actually starts to relive Jin Gu’s memories with her, which seems like a magical stretch, but then again, so is the transplant-and-replacement-boyfriend premise to begin with. Yoon Hyun-min co-stars as the heroine’s best friend, and the boys will become rivals for her affection.

The initial teasers were funny too, but the meta teasers below are my favorite. In them, the three leads play themselves, pretending to talk about the show behind the scenes. Jung Kyung-ho frowns at the script and complains to his manager that the title is meh, and heart pain is difficult to act out. Cue dramatic heart-clenching. Kim So-yeon laughs and cries and laughs all over again while reading the first episode’s script, and Yoon Hyun-min pumps up his muscles before a shower scene. That’d better not be false advertising, Show!

Falling for Innocence premieres this Friday, April 3.

Granted she didn't annoy me in Two Weeks but she did it so much in PP that I still don't think of her as decent. :)

Kim So-yeon is known for being a pretty solid actress. Besides Iris, I've seen her in I need Romance and Dr. Champ.

Take off your blinded bias against her, and maybe, you will find her a great actress like everyone else.

Cuz gurl, you be blind to call Kim So Yeon a bad actress. She is anything but bad actress.

This almost seem like another split personality drama, with the whole who-am-I-really, and who-am-I-falling-in-love-with thing, especially if memories are involved too (?!). While I think the premise has great melodrama potential, I see so many ways the story could go wrong. You really need a strong writer to pull off a satisfying end (... like HJM...*cough* not...)

Well, "split-personality" is almost standard operating procedure when it comes to "falling in love" and jerk leads.

I stopped counting the times I have been annoyed by these "80 bpm" heart rate sound effect and the pseudo-oblivious "what kind of heart disease is that" nonsense scenes.

You can make it work (see: Best love), but it is really, really hard to do, especially when it has become so totally cliched.

Why can't Yoon Hyun-min get a drama where he gets the girl. I'm tired of watching him play second lead to bobble head boy Jung Kyung-ho. He's an alright actor but I don't find him very attractive. We'll see if he can do comedy as well as Yoon.

He was in Witch's Love and he was hilarious! He played the bestfriend but he did get a girl, plus he had a wonderful bromance with Park Seo-joon.

The mind boggles. The male 1st lead hasn't had a decent rating drama this decade.

Actually it will be a shower scene involving Yoon Huyn Min. I saw it in the new trailer today.

Love all the cast. Hope for a solid show. I can`t wait to watch it.

IF, and I stress IF, they play the whole cellular memory bakvaas for laughs as in the trailers, that would be fine. But K Dramas ALWAYS lie, pitching trailers that inflate the comic and hide the rest. Even the very, very dark Angry Mom did the same. Ditto Ho Gu's Love, Super Daddy Yeol and countless other unfunny romcoms. So I'm picknig this one to be pure melo, with the only laughs the ones we've already seen.

I sure hope not. I think they will succeed in this drama if they fully embrace the silliness of the cliche'.

Hahaha the teasers are great. I wonder how they're gonna keep up with the humor if this drama is suppose to be melodramatic though. x3

Kim So Yeon's high pitched laughing in her teaser made me laugh so hard.

I hope this is as light-hearted as the teasers are making it look; I think that would be a better angle to take than just melo. But we'll see! Fingers crossed that it'll be a great show anyways, since I'm really excited about this cast.

I am not trying to be insulting but is there a Photoshop editing issues with the faces for all 3 posters?

I don't recall their faces looking like that. Or is it just the foundation?

JKH and KSY's look same to me (individual posters).

Only Yoon Hyun Min's face looked too small.

I wish they photoshopped away that horrible hairstyle on JKH though T____T

JKH's foundation is lighter than his face which is kind of normal- in photos.

Howev do you see his face seems to be jumping out from his neck? Is it the angle?

YHM has the same issue. Weird.

Interesting drama employing similar troupe and corresponding conflicts of heart transplant and cellular memory (sounds like memory capacity of my mobile) like in earlier Kdrama starring Son Ye Jin in "Summer Scent".
This drama was more goofy and light in some ways.
I think the leads were not well casted for their roles. The male lead Jung Kyung Ho is too young and lacks "gravity" for the role of a serious and successful corporate raider/M&A specialist. He also failed too play his role consistently and was better as a boy band member. Kim So Yeon was a credible actress in IRIS but was not well casted for her role in the drama. The male secretary and female detective were good supporting cast while Yoon Hyun Min seemed credibly bad..
