High school uniforms and boxing gloves for Oh My Venus

Oh My Venus (the KBS rom-com formerly known as Oh My God) finally has some stills for us, with a few fan photos thrown in for good measure. I have to concede that this drama sounds like a pastiche of a bunch of other recent dramas, but if only for the sake of the cast, I sure hope it finds a way to refresh its familiar premise. Please be good please be good.

Shin Mina (Arang and the Magistrate) plays a lawyer who was gorgeous in high school (as we can see in the new stills) and has become overweight in adulthood, who embarks on a diet challenge with the help of famous trainer So Ji-sub (Master’s Sun). She’ll get with the weight-loss program, but more importantly, they’ll heal each other’s wounds and fall in love.

Admittedly that sounds a lot like She Was Pretty’s pretty-to-ugly-and-back-to-pretty-again reversal, but since this drama is touting itself as a “health healing romantic comedy,” it does sound like the plot will be more about the process of her transformation than Pretty.

Playing rival is Yoo In-young (Mask), who was the overweight ugly girl in high school and is now the sleek, beautiful boss at the law firm where Shin Mina works. Jung Kyeo-woon plays Shin Mina’s longtime boyfriend who ditches her for Yoo In-young, which is a plotline pretty much ripped right out of his last drama, Birth of a Beauty, where he married the heroine out of duty when she was unattractive, then wanted her back when she became Han Ye-seul. At least we know he’s good at playing the shallow douchebag? Not like anyone will be looking at him with So Ji-sub around anyway, right?

Henry (of Super Junior M and Persevere, Gu Hae-ra) will be playing a Harvard-educated genius with an innocent personality who’s So Ji-sub’s buddy. If he’s a genius, why is he boxing in the photos below? Is he… a genius boxer? I did really enjoy his cheery, goofy personality in Gu Hae-ra, so I have hopes that he’ll make for a hilarious sidekick.

Oh My Venus will be KBS’s next Monday-Tuesday drama, premiering on October 16.

I can't believe it's been three years since Arang! And Shin Mina is still the most gorgeous woman in the known universe, so clearly nothing changed during that time. And So Ji-sub is still hot enough to short-circuit my laptop, better get it serviced before this drama starts....

I just hope this entire premise is less silly than it sounds, and that I won't be mourning too hard about Sassy Go Go ending (only three weeks left!)

How unfair is it that that uniform still looks acceptable on Shin Min-ah?! Ugh. She's gorgeous and doesn't seem to age.

Oh My Venus will premier on November 16, 2015. Then Moorim School will follow on January 11, 2016.

Moorim started filming one week earlier than Oh My Venus even though OMV is airing first.

As a Strings (fan of Henry's) I can answer your question about Henry's role. This is the voice message he left for his fans on Flitto about his drama character...

Hey, everybody. It's been a long time. I know. It's....it's me. How is everybody doing? I miss you guys a lot. Um, lately I have been, um… preparing for my new drama. That I’m gonna be shooting starting tomorrow, actually. Really looking forward to it. I’ve been in the gym a lot because… my character is actually a trainer, a gym trainer… So, ha! I have to be training with this UFC fighter, So that I can learn how to fight and everything. But don't worry, everybody. I won't... I won't fight anybody, but if anybody hurts you guys, I’ll fight them for you guys, yeah. But, I hope everyone is doing well. I miss you and thank you for all the birthday wishes, presents and everything. I love you guys! Have a great day! Bye!

that would be nice. I'm watching him in 2-days 1-night, and i think he's a bit bigger now. I want him to go back to his slim and fit days =). It will make his face more mature. Hope he will be a lead someday. I'm also a fan =)

The prospect of the beloved Sassy ending is just so sad..."(

But SJS and Min-ah in one drama? SQUE.

Did Birth of a Beauty start a trend? *GASP*

yeah, part of me wishes Sassy Go Go was a 50-episoder :(

Still, So Ji-sub/Shin Mina as a pairing should take a little of the sting out of the heartache.

While I am looking forward to Shin Mina back on the screen (yaaaaas), I hope the plot isn't as basic as it sounds. I mean it really just sounds like birth of a beauty+she was pretty+heart to heart

I'm going to send all sorts of prayers to all sorts of Gods for this to be good. I really don't want another wonderful pairing to fall into abyss because of a bad plot line. *Starts praying*

You know it's a drama when....the hot male lead wears the ugly haircut!!

It's almost as if they're worried So Ji Sub will look hotter than his costar. I notice with a lot of dramas...the lead actor has a whack hair style. I do not get it! SJS is still hot as hell though!!

My favourite sexy ajusshi is back! Oh how I've missed you since seeing you in Masters Sun. So so excited for this, I swear he's like George Clooney, the older the better they get. Henry is gonna look so adorable next to him.

So Ji Sub OPPA! Wow. He can wear a suit like no other ... *fans self*

And Shin Mina! Arang and the Magistrate and The Master's Sun are literally my two favorite dramas ever. If Lee Jun Ki and Gong Hyo Jin show up, my head might explode, and I'd just ship a giant square of them together probably.

Hoping it's really good or even just decent and fun enough to watch--but I'll be there for sure for the premiere, one way or another.

MINE TOO. The square would actually be complete if Lee Jun-ki and Gong Hyo-jin got paired up in another project (and my head would actually explode then), but their respective tastes in projects are so wildly divergent that I don't even know where they'd connect. But they are both Hong sisters alumnae, so maybe a romcom would be a good start?

And Arang/Master's Sun are two of my favourites too,

I don't know, I love both of them but but the story I think isn't interesting.
I hope I'm wrong though, hope it will be good and bring some good results for kbs.

I neve found So Ji-sub attractive until now. This stills make me go "ah, so that's what it is". I finally get it. Oh my Yoo In-young, for once I'd like to see her play a nice person maybe some heroine's oddball best friend. I love her but they always make her play evil people, it's getting annoying. Shin Mina looks so good in that uniform, like what sorcery is this? I'm looking forward to this show, I hope it's good.
