First peek at Kim Woo-bin and Suzy in Lightly, Ardently

New year, new dramas! There were a few sneak peeks at the KBS Drama Awards for their upcoming shows, and among them was the first teaser for Lightly, Ardently, the new melodrama from writer Lee Kyung-hee (Nice Guy, Will It Snow for Christmas) starring Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) and Suzy (Gu Family Book) as a star and a TV producer who fall in love.

The series is sure to have a layer of meta about showbiz, and the first teaser is actually a hodgepodge of many different things: the two actors in character setting up the camera for an interview, a glimpse at the drama itself, and then the two actors as themselves, introducing their drama. It makes for a weird teaser, but the general feeling is a moody, contemplative melodrama.

Kim Woo-bin stars as a haughty top star and Suzy plays a documentary PD, and the two are separated painfully in their youth and reunited as adults when their social stations couldn’t be farther apart. Im Joo-hwan (Oh My Ghostess) and Im Joo-eun (Heirs) costar.

Their painful separation must involve Suzy’s surgery, because Kim Woo-bin’s character pleads in the teaser, “If you save her, I will give you the rest of my life.” Whatever the circumstances are that have led to that point, they seem suuuuper dramatic, but I already like the chemistry between the leads, and am hoping for Suzy to step it up as a leading actress. Fingers crossed that their ardent love is one that I root for.

According to the teaser, we’ll have to wait for summer to see Lightly, Ardently on our screens.

Cute! I think this short teaser is better than those short teasers that Decedents of the Sun released.

Suzy's screen presence is really something. I'm hoping her acting has improved. She would be so enigmatic onscreen

I don't know about the drama yet, but they sure do look sweet next to each other as themselves. I wonder though, why are they so chummy in those first 10 secs when I thought they were supposed to not get along at first? Maybe I got that part wrong.

They said she is a documentary PD, so maybe they're filming his "life story"? Who knows.

She is probably poor. But not a Candy. They knew each other and looks like were a couple long before he became rich and famous.

The teaser is surely interesting though. And hopefully they release more information sooner on this drama~
And I don't know if it's too early too judge because they only showed a few seconds for the teaser, but Suzy & Woobin's chemistry is something that makes me anticipate more for this drama.

Why people keep insisting on melodramas? It's nice to have something dramatic, but not that dramatic.

I liked her "non stylish" look, a little bit indie. Never watched anything with her, but I liked the style on her.

Anyway, I will not watch this.

Their chemistry! Love the way they speak each other in first 10sec of teaser. Looks so casual yet so real. Surprised.

No chemistry there Woo Bin could make a brown paper bag with the portrait of Suzy on it look good! He does that with any lead actress he stars with. She and Min Ho go together because unfortunately they have one thing in common: this will be one more drama where she's boring as god knows what with her acting. Suzy playing a person who's a PD not so convincingly and poor Woo Bin acting his ass off so we aren't disappointed. Dramabeans will be disappointed recapping it too.

I must be the odd one out....but I don't find Suzy or Kim Woo Bin physically appealing at all. I never understood how everyone just goes "Suzy is so pretty" or "KWB is so handsome". Mind you I don't find them ugly....just average in my opinion. At least KWB is great at acting. Suzy still needs to prove herself.

I also found KWB very weird looking at first. Then Choi Young Do came along and he just became so attractive to me.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

I totally agree with you, although I find KWB overall attractive because of his height and body. KWB has actually gotten a lot of mean criticism from k-netz talking about how he basically is "surviving on his height and shoulders" LOL.

So take that for what you will I guess, I still enjoy seeing him on screen nonetheless.

What I like about KWB is that his looks are very different - You never could mistake him for someone else, and his features are very interesting if not conventionally handsome. Suzy, on the other hand, has the standard ingenue good looks: big eyes, narrow face, straight little nose, ever-present smile. She seems very perky and nice and totally ordinary which makes her perfect for CFs.
KWB has slightly better acting skills than Suzy, but I don't see either one of them as capable of carrying a melo.

Hope the story is well-written as these days the kdramas story seem to falter towards the second half. Some of the Chinese dramas have surpassed the k dramas.. Can't say much as it is very short teaser. Suzy without much make up is plain looking but KWB and her seem to match which is the important thing. Don't see the hype about her looks but hope her acting improves.

She's one of those celebs that looks really different without makeup on. Without makeup she's such a plain jane, but with makeup and circle lenses on, I find her pretty.

Anyway, I hope her acting improves as well.

The writer is the one who wrote Thank You. Underrated, but great drama with simple premise. Although she's also the one who wrote Nice Guy which is not the example of a consistent writing, I think she has a knack for melodrama, she knows how to make it engaging.

What an interesting and lovely pairing. It certainly helps that Kim Woo Bin is friends with Lee Min Ho and that WooBin is in a BEAUTIFUL love relationship with Sin Min-Ah. I like to imagine the four of them double-dating. Being grounded in true-life love is bound to give both of these fine actors a lovely aura as they interact with each other. I'm looking forward to this one!!

re: "Being grounded in true-life love is bound to give both of these fine actors a lovely aura as they interact with each other." I agree. I willing to bet Shin Min Ah's relationship with Woo Bin is what informs her acting in "Oh My Venus".

This looks SOOOO makjang, but I don't like judging a drama based off a teaser or trailer, so we'll see how this one goes.

I've only ever watched one work by this writer, Nice Guy, and I couldn't finish it lol. It was way too makjang and I didn't really sympathize/care enough about the characters to finish.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to see how this develops even though KWB and SZ fans are already being super annoying over this drama and there's still a good six months before it's going to premiere LOL.

lol if you've never seen Lee Kyung-hee's previous work, Nice Guy was actually pretty toned down compared to that. And here we've already got some kind of major illness/surgery, it's practically a law that LKH dramas will have one. And a Truck of Doom somewhere too.

But she does write good roles for her leads. If any drama writer can get a decent performance out of Suzy, it's most likely her. Though I hope she and KWB have chemistry and don't end up just being two pretty people occupying the same frame and going through the motions of a romance - it just ruins a drama when that happens.

Yes Nice Guy looked less makjang because the directing tone down alot of thing as if had they handle it with different director, it would be more dramatic I bet

KWB needs to...never let his bangs down. Like ever. He's one of those guys whose looks really change depending on his hair style. He looks AMAZING with his hair combed back...with his bangs down not so much tbh.

He doesn't look bad with his hair down, it actually looked quite cute in School 2013/Heirs.

But the particular style he's wearing here is too 90s boyband-y and the fringe overwhelms his features a little.

This one looks very prettily shot but overwrought as hell - par for a melo by Lee Kyung-hee, I suppose.

As for the leads, the 10 seconds of footage we've got are very prettily shot, but the way they look has never been a problem. Her acting looks less like an obvious struggle than usual so that's good, but any Suzy performance must be judged by a drastically lowered standard compared to other actresses, anyway - one can't expect her to perform on the level of Im Soo-jung or even Moon Chae-won, but if she does a Hyeri that'll be more than enough.

Also, on the chemistry front, both Kim Woo-bin and Suzy look very cute and styled just right, but they're serving up Heirs vibes. Take that as you will.

Well this looks very very Melo.
KWB and Suzy look nice together but I am praying that the acting works out...melo's usually need strong actors/actresses to carry the script as they can drag so much at times. Praying this is worth it

well, it's Lee Kyung-hee after all, I am SO not surprised we have a life-threatening illness/surgery for one lead within, what, ten seconds?

Melos usually do need strong actors but LKH can write for rookies too - Sang-doo was Rain's acting debut and he did great.

That moment when Suzy is putting on the mic and they both smile at each other....TOTALLY SOLD (on the chemistry at least).

I really hope both of them pull out the best in each other's acting and really make this work. I really don't like Suzy's acting (thus far, nothing has impressed me) however I do feel that with the right script and more practice, she has potential....same goes for Woo Bin.

Wow, Suzy and Kim Woo-bin actually have chemistry with one another. The teaser was really cute but I'm really hoping Suzy has improved as an actress and I hope Im Joo-hwan doesn't destroy Kim Woo-bin too much in the acting department. I'm wary of this writer since I saw Will It Snow For Christmas. I've been reluctant to see anything else she has written since her stories aren't my usual cup of tea. I'll try to catch a few episodes to see what it's like. If I catch emotions from this show, I don't need anything else.

LOL at some people already saying they're going to have amazing chemistry because of a 3 second clip from the teaser...umm okay. Anyway, KWB is a really intense actor, so I think he's able to have chemistry with literally any co-star, female or male LOL.

I'm looking forward to see if it maintains throughout 20 episodes tho.

Im looking forward to this and had no idea this was in the work but I'm hoping there is more fun, lighthearted romance and less melo...I don't think I can go through another round of cringe worthy lines like in the Heirs again.
Suzy is not my favorite actress, but hopefully she does pull her weight.

It's the Suzy factor. She bought the lead guy down in Gu Family Book, too. Everytime she was onscreen it was like the life got sucked out of the scene.

I think pre-recording allow the actor to completely be the character and not rush into some scene/empotion needed for later episode that just shot early,

off course it has better interesting set up compare to Descended from the sun. ... The screenwriters is Lee Kyung HEe, where Son Jong Ki has to deal with Kim Eun Seok. I don't think 100 % production would make it different. Damn, SOng Jong Ki should be in Lee Kyung Hee's drama instead of Kim Eun Seok's

IU or Shim Eun-kyung would do a better job than Suzy. It'll have 'star factor' but the Woo Bin fans will tune in so he doesn't have a melo that's a ratings flop. Bet Min Ho really bothered his buddy a LOT to start with her.

Dramabeans has become an infestation of bad comments these days. So I am frequenting less and less here, or at least scrolling down fast so I don't have to read the bad comments.

Anyway, I am so excited for this drama. Has Kim Woo Bin ever kissed onscreen before? I couldn't find any videos. It means the kiss in this drama (if they kiss that is) will be his first kiss. Haha. Awww.

bad comments? I don't see how any of the comments here are bad, it's generally only when the diehard idol/certain actor fans come that things start getting messy. And that's because they can't stand hearing their faves get criticised for subpar acting.

Kim Woo-bin has had onscreen love scenes in all 3 of his movies, and even had a bed scene in Friend 2.
