High school girl meets Joseon king in Splish Splash Love

Sadly, the premiere date has been pushed back for MBC’s time-slip fantasy drama special Splish Splash Love (Pongdang Pongdang Love), so we’ll have to wait another week to see it on the air. But here are a few teasers and stills to tide us over till then, featuring more adorable moments between our high school time-traveler Kim Seul-gi and our young Joseon king Yoon Doo-joon.

The 2-episode drama special has delayed its scheduled broadcast by a week because the staff needed more time to complete post-production work on the show. The change hardly makes a ripple in general programming because they’re airing it on Sunday nights at midnight, though it’s too bad that we’ll have to wait another week to see it.

Kim Seul-gi stars as a high-schooler with the ability to teleport when it rains, and the teaser shows her running on a rainy day, straight into a puddle of water that sucks her in and spits her out at the other end of a wormhole in the Joseon era. (Also, why does Kim Seul-gi keep drowning in her dramas?) Her character’s name is Dan-bi, which means “rain” (of the welcome, much-needed variety), and the teaser’s punny tagline is: “On December 13, rain will fall in Joseon.” Hur.

The rain really is needed though, because Yoon Doo-joon’s King Lee Do (Sejong the Great) happens to be dealing with drought in his kingdom when this strange time-traveler plops into his life. Convenient, that. It’s a coming-of-age story about two young people who need a little direction in their lives, and despite the vast difference in their eras, they’ll develop a connection and help each other figure out their futures. I like the teaser that’s cut to look like they’re running to each other, centuries apart. C’mon, time-travel romance, you might be short, but I’m ready to swoon!

Splish Splash Love will air December 13 and 20 on MBC.

Lucky girl. I'm a King Sejong fan-girl. I want to meet him too. It's kind of hard to imagine this book-worm falling for a girl from the future.

I'm guessing that's Queen Wongyeong? I hope she gets to tell her that she is very pretty in Six Flying Dragons lol.

I think you are mixing up the history. "Six Flying dragons" is not about King Sejong. It's about his father, King Taejong. So Queen WongYeong is actually King Sejong's Mother.

U can check out at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taejong_of_Joseon

I'm NOT mixing up history. I know Queen Wongyeong is King Sejong's mother. If you scroll down there is a picture of the queen outside her quarters. (She is what I'm talking about). She looks old enough to be Sejong's mother and Queen Wongyeong was Bang-won's (King Taejong) ONLY queen. If there's a queen at the palace, she would be it.

Currently in Six Flying Dragons, Lady Min the future Queen Wongyeong is played by the beautiful Kong Seung-Yeon. It's not about King Sejong but it's about his parents.

Isn't that Jin Ki-Joo? From my knowledge, she's playing Queen Soheun (Sejong's wife) in the drama. I might be wrong though. The picture's rather small and it's hard to tell from that angle haha.

I think that's Im Ye Jin as Queen Wongyeong but I'm not sure.

I'm excited that Kim Gab Soo is part of the cast.

Finally the bride, err, the leading lady. You've come a long way Kim Seul Gi. And I like your King,Yoon Doo Joon can certainly match your quirkiness. I'll take this as a christmas present from Kdrama Heaven. Yes, thank you, thank you very much!

Omona these are definitely the reasons I'm already excited for this drama special. I guess the delay's sign of stars aligning because I'd properly finish finals by then, hence uninterrupted midnight Kim Seulgi fangirling~

I so wish this was a full-length drama, or a 8-10 ep one at least. Anyway, looking forward to watching it. Short, but sweet.

How can Seulgi not be any CUTER???!! Just from the stills and the teasers I can already feel the OTP. Whyy why must this only be 2 episodes...

Better than nothing I guess, well another week of wait will just make it all the more special when watching this.

I'm just reading about it and my heart is already breaking...
cuz really romance + time travel anywhere especially the past = where's-the-happy-ending-for-that-huh?

and based on (admittedly few) experience on this plot, the ending for such stories are either pretty depressing *side eyes or just unsatisfying..

Well, she can't really have a happily ever after with the real Yi Do unless the writers want to throw history down the tubes. The most we'll probably get is her going back to her own time and meeting someone that looks exactly like Yi Do. I am watching this because of Kim Seul Gi. Looking forward to all her antics.

Sigh... your comment made me remember Rooftop Prince (and my cheated feelings)...

This looks great (LOVE the leads), really charming and heart warming... except that we can't expect them to be together, can we?

...

Unless she stays there and becomes one of the numerous, concubines... ok, that IS kinda sad, in our hearts we want some exclusivety for the leads... but it's Joseon... I think that's the "best" we can get.

OR,

In her life time, she'll FOREVER jump back in time to be with him, even if for a day at a time... which is also super depressing (this just made me think of the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie... Will coming to shore every bloody 10 years... terrible).

Just hoping for an endearing show (since the get together doesn't seem possible).

Thanks for the news girlfriday!

Ugh I hope its not a Rooftop Price ending. It was so disappointing to have just a guy that looked like him not actually him. That difference just irked me.

I'd rather have the depressing 2nd choice LOL. It goes with the love transcends idea. Kind of like a My Love From Another Star ending I suppose?

That was among the least disappointing things about RTP - too many to list.

Or he comes back to future to be together with her and they leave a stand-in in the past? :p

Omg these pics! My heart is already beating fast! This is the kind of stuff that made me fall for kdramas. With AM 88 and I Have A Lover being current exceptions, I'm so bored with kdramas in general.

Anyway, I hope this is as good as it looks!!!

I love time travel romance. The story of love trancends the time and space always get me interested. Add good actor such as KSG in it and I'm getting more excited. Can't wait, surely. C'mon drama, give me 1 happy ending and don't disappoint me.

Time-travel sageuk + Kim Seul Gi sounds great! I'll be watching this for sure., pity it's so short.

Also, I'm surprised how young Kim Seul Gi looks in the teasers. She is really pulling off the high school student lool

Words cannot express how much I wish this was a full drama. I find the premise refreshing for a time slip drama. After the disappointment that was Faith (SO MUCH POTENTIAL RUINED!!!) This would have been an interesting take

Well, i always wonder where is drama plot for me when i am so needing this in my life.

The premise slightly worry me, what about happy ending??? Kim Seulgi deserves happy ending after Ghostess >.< Meanwhile, the teaser is uber cute!! Can't wait

Kim Seul-gi is such a lovable actress, may not be the usual beautiful idol actress but she's so likeable with a clear streak of comedic talents in the dramas she had been in. Looking forward to her being real funny and affirmable in this drama! But it will be interesting to see if she can pull out some good tricks in the books when it comes to the dramatic scenes. Since currently I like her more in comedic roles (from Surplus princess and from Oh my Goddess)

Kim Seul-gi was great with Ko Gyun Pyo in Flower boy next door. Their love line( she is a sleep deprived editor) is cute and hilarious.

About time! Kim Seul Gi showcased excellent acting chops in Ghostess, but pity, got kind of sidelined by the script. Hope she goes on to have meatier roles after this little drama.

Does anyone know where I can watch this online? It seems SO cute and much more light hearted that some of the other time traveling dramas. (It's also perfect for a short commitment. Two episodes! You can't go wrong.)
