Oh My Venus teases secret heirs and diets

New teaser(s) for Oh My Venus are out! (The qualified plural is because one was released days ago but KBS made it difficult to find a copy that was viewable internationally. And of course, now that that one’s uploaded to Youtube, they’ve made the newest one unavailable for embedding here, so you’ll have to hop over to see it directly. I don’t know why KBS has become so unfriendly to fans trying to watch its stuff, but I dislike it greatly. Do you want me to promote your show or not?)

Oh My Venus stars Shin Mina as a currently overweight lawyer, formerly svelte in her high school years. The second teaser below tells us, “Everybody has their heyday,” and we see her making heads turn as a teenager… and then I suppose also making heads turn literally in adulthood in a courtroom brawl.

So Ji-sub is the mysterious heir to a medical company who’s also a health trainer, who works with our heroine in a diet challenge. The strange thing is, he’s been called a world-famous trainer (I still don’t really know how that works), but now is also called a secret trainer… and the diet is a secret challenge. What’s with all the covertness? And what’s the point of a diet challenge that’s secret when the result (hopefully) will be entirely visible?

I’m hoping the show has good answers for us, because it does at least look very cute, and these two actors are adorable together. Also sizzling hot. Adorably sexy is a thing, right?

I do think the show has done a credible job making Shin Mina look overweight, in that it still looks like her and the prosthetics have been applied seamlessly. It’ll still require a little imagination to see her as unattractive, but I surprisingly don’t hate the fake fat, which often looks terribly done in dramas.

There are also a few stills of So Ji-sub with his buddies, Sung Hoon and Henry, who play a UFC champion and his trainer-manager, respectively. The three are also roommates—or mansion-mates may be the more appropriate term, judging from their luxury digs. I wouldn’t say no to a hearty dose of bromance and guy bonding, that’s for sure. Shirts optional!

The drama follows Sassy Go Go, which ends this week on KBS. It premieres on November 16.

Is it even necessary to be a heir? I mean couldnt he only be a.famous trainer?? Isn't that enough!!???? KOREA STOP IT WITH THE HEIRS CRAP!! Not every male lead needs to be a chaebol.. Everytime i read in a drama description the words heir and second generation chaebol it just.sounds so tacky to me!!

Oh dear, I'm like the fat version. It'd be fun if they give real weight loss and work out tips (kind of like how Let's Eat gives a good amount of time to the food). Maybe I can shed the kilos as Shin Minah decreases the amount of her fat suit week by week hahahahah.

I've been wanting her to do a cameo in this since it was announced (since she's worked with SJS and SMN before, and is good friends with the latter) but I think if she did, I'd start shipping SJS's character with her instead, despite how much chemistry he has with SMN!

yeah, Shin Mina has pretty much had a massive case of hero-worship (unnie-worship?) for GHJ as long as she's been working, she practically sounds like she has hearts in her eyes every time she talks about how cool and awesome her unnie is (I feel you, girl, that's probably how I would sound too).

A cameo from GHJ would be amazing, you'd probably be able to hear my squeals halfway across the continent :D

That first trailer listed here is the most sexually charged trailer I've seen for a Kdrama probably ever! Haha! You can tell how comfortable those two are together shooting like this from having worked on those CFs together in the past.

And I agree that they seemed to have done a good job with SMN's "fat" makeup--she still looks like a human being! I have hopes for this. Can it start now, please?

I think it's probably because they are mature stars comfortable with each other and with their own sexuality. It takes a certain level of maturity to be able to pull this off convincingly, to get the chemistry just right without either overplaying or underplaying it. I trust both So Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah, and as much as I love Sassy Go Go, I really can't wait for this drama to start :-)

I wonder how they got Shin Min Ah to look "fat" facially? Cheek inserts I assume? But these wardrobe crew are doing a fantastic job because they look so real!

I'm hoping the whole weightloss is not done is secrecy so that she can get revenge cause I'm pretty sure there is already a show for that.

I CANNOT wait for this to start! PLEEEASSSEE let it be on Viki! I'm already so bummed out, that I can't watch Bubblegum there ... sigh!!! That second trailer is seriously HOT! Good, these two are soooo pretty together, it kills me! I really hope they don't go all racy on the teaser and then super tame on the love-scenes. Go ahead and really KISS her So Ji Sub, I swear you won't regret it ....and neither will the viewers!

It looks like it's going to be on Dramafever: http://www.dramafever.com/drama/4766/Oh_My_Venus/.
Of course could always try requesting it at Viki, though: http://vikiinc.wufoo.com/forms/title-request-form/.

Viki has sent out emails to Fans requesting that we ask for it to be licensed. I think I've filled it out about twice. Since DramaFever has the exclusive rights to tVN dramas for the next few years, I'm hoping that they would back off and allow Viki to also have a chance at the public station aired dramas. I love the subs on Viki they're so authentic. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for DF subs....

But gah, these two have the best chemistry. SM is freaking adorable. I'm really trying not to have high expectations for it, but I can't help but hope that the show won't shy away from depicting the character with realistic inward struggles instead of fat shaming her until she loses the prosthetics.

I KNOOOOOOW, I AM SO NOT READY FOR SASSY GO GO TO END :( *joins you in crying*

I hope that there's more to Oh My Venus than its weird/superficial-sounding premise, because Sassy Go Go also looked like a silly little fluff drama with a weird premise in its teasers.....until the drama hit and we saw that it was a gem in disguise.

But mainly I want it to be good so I won't have to be annoyed that Sassy's time slot got taken over by a crap drama. (this is not a state of affairs I'd have predicted six weeks ago!)

I can sort of buy the idea that a trainer is famous, especially if they've got some publicity via a celebrity - Tracy Anderson, anyone?

But of course our top trainer is also a chaebol. Of COURSE he is. And "fat" Shin Mina is still 10x more gorgeous than I will ever be.

I'll probably only watch this because it looks like they have good chemistry together. But this and She Was Pretty make me want to see a romcom where one of the leads is actually fat or average looking and falls in love without changing anything.

Especially She Was Pretty, where the supposedly uglified actress was really cute and then post makeover looked kind of nondescript.

You could argue that in She Was Pretty they fell in love before she changed her appearance. I see your point though. I am sort of tired of the make-over troupe that has always been in use, but is now getting whole dramas about it.

In this case, it doesn't bother me as much (dependent on execution though) because it seems like she's trying to get healthy, not necessarily pretty. So, I'm willing to give it a shot and see what happens.

I'd recommend watching this British show called My Mad Fat Diary if that's what you're looking for. It's not a straight-up rom-com (I'd say its main focus is the main character's mental illness, actually) but it is a wonderfully thoughtful show with heart and humour. There are three seasons but only 16 episodes in total; let me just say, though, that you can feel free to not watch the third season. ;) They definitely dropped the ball on that final season and the finale of the second season is a perfectly apt series finale, in my opinion. (A side note: I've been trying to find the name of the music director for MMFD for the longest time to no avail! Whoever, they are, they're absolutely brilliant -- I've never seen a show with such impeccable song selections before.)

The fact that among major broadcasters drama plots come in trends suggests we can expect. Sounds like it'll be a version of the hidden beauty theme. And a commentary on superficial societal standards.

Maybe like SBS's Birth of a Beauty with better production values?

Or ideally a version of MBCs She Was Pretty? I've thought this has been a surprisingly well crafted and smart drama if you look beyond the simplistic boy meets girl framework that the story's main message and artistic devices were hung on.

These leads typically pick good projects. And it looks like this one might have a theme of 'strong is the new sexy'.

So all that makes me really hopeful about Venus.

The chemistry between these two in the bed teaser virtually burns up the screen! It would be so good if they could sustain that through much of the drama. I'm both a DramaFever and Viki premium subscriber, so I'll definitely be watching. But it's true that Viki's subs are far superior (though, sometimes waiting for full subs for some Viki dramas is a bit frustrating) to those of DF. At this point, though, I'm just thrilled to have a reserved seat for OMV. Which reminds me---I had better make a store run for some Orville Redenbacher's Tender White microwave popcorn (AKA, popcorn crack), and some Sam Adams Winter Lager in preparation for Ep. 1!

Yeah...the Chabeol thing....Does South Korea have an obsession with all things Chabeol, because unless they
make that aspect of our leading man's narrative really essential, I'm just going to role my eyes every time they feature that in the drama.

I do hope that the writer incorporates the fat factor positively and just talks about weight as a health matter. Weight related problems are very real and I hope the show handles it sensibly and put across some positive messages. This is a great opportunity to do so with such popular actors so a lot of people will tune in.

Having said that though, I'm not sure if anyone will concentrate on the story with such adorable actors on board? LOL!

I wonder if that first one was not available internationally because of that song they were using in it. Possibly they used an illegal sample and had to re-record it to release internationally. *shrug* Maybe.
