Star scholar Joo-won is official royal babysitter for SBS’s My Sassy Girl

If Park Hae-jin’s mastered the deadpan look for Man to Man, Joo-won’s (Yong-pal) got the incredulous reactions down pat. I tried to be sparing with the screen grabs of the 3-minute trailer that’s been released for SBS’s upcoming My Sassy Girl, but I really couldn’t pass up Joo-won’s various reactions to Oh Yeon-seo’s (Come Back, Ajusshi) sassy antics. Not that I’m complaining, if you’ll excuse my shallow detour, because I want to get my fill of his pretty face since it won’t be as readily available for the next two years.

The teaser starts with Gyun Woo, played by Joo-won, receiving his new official duties as private tutor to the Crown Prince, and it looks like he gets more than he bargained for as he unwittingly introduces himself to the princess. They recognize each other and Gyun Woo has to stop himself from calling her “flower-snake,” hah. I guess being the private tutor to the young prince includes babysitting the princess, because Gyun Woo accompanies her as she picks fights in the street and enjoys (rather grossly) a late-night chicken feet snack. There’s a reason to his suffering though, as the princess warns, “If you don’t find my jade ring, I will make your life a living hell, Scholar Gyun.” This is the jade ring given to the princess by her lover who has gone missing, and we saw Gyun Woo unknowingly pick it up from the ground at the beginning of the trailer.

There are Serious Things going on in the palace, though, and there is a faction within the courts that apparently want the princess out of the way. We see Gyun Woo and Lee Jung-shin’s (Cinderella and the Four Knights) character Kang Joon-young, come to her rescue on multiple occasions, while a voice offscreen says, “Tonight, the king will lose his children and cry tears of blood.” Ominous, indeed.

Hmm, it looks like the baddies (led by veteran villain Jung Woong-in (Monster)) know about the princess’s missing lover, and they set a trap for her, but have no fear, Gyun Woo is here! It’s only small glimpses, but Gyun Woo’s concern for the princess is pretty adorable and swoony. It’s not clear whether the evil politicians got something on our heroine from the trap they laid, but next thing we know, she’s given a choice to either marry a Qing royal or get kicked out of the palace. Ahh, nothing like a good arranged marriage to bring buried feelings of lurrrvveee out from the land of denial, as evidenced by Gyun Woo’s brooding and requisite sword fight with his romantic rival.

I have to admit, I squealed a little too hard twice in this trailer, one right after the other. But honestly, you can’t expect me to watch Joo-won brood while pondering aloud things like, “My woman,” and not act like a giddy schoolgirl. And then this happened:

*Rewind, play, repeat* Can ya blame me?

My Sassy Girl is will take over the Monday-Tuesday slot on May 29 from Whisper, which is ending tomorrow. This means we only have one more week until Joo-won graces our screens, hurrah!

Looks so adorable! I never watched the original My Sassy Girl so this is like its own show for me. I will make every moment count with my Joo Won before he leaves me for the military!

This looks great. It's preproduced right? I'm loving this trend. I have much more confidence that the story won't end up all sorts of mess-up.

This is neither here nor there, but didn't they use the same waterfall for a pivotal scene in The Princess's Man?

Good to see you, bbstl! I'll be watching, too. Am tickled to see Joo Won in a sageuk at last. ;-)

His Pekingese companion -- complete with canine hanfu -- cracks me up.

That ring was so symbolic in Goblin! Here's to hoping the ring will not end the lead couple the way it did to the King and Queen in Goblin.

Ayeee.. everything is so colorful here. I think this drama should be swoony-worthy. The vibe reminds me of Goong. :) Hope this is a great one!

So this ain't nothing like My Sassy Girl except for the protagonist being sassy and the guy dancing to her tunes mostly, still, I'd watch for both and it looks good.

YESS. I'm currently watching Faith and UM after like the first couple of episodes where Kim Hee-Sun's character is super DUPER annoying it's SO GOOD. I REALLY hope this will be the same kind of crack as that drama.

For me, the OST was the most cracktastic part of FAITH. I also loved the animated sequences of the Woodalchi.

Ryu Deok-hwan was terrific as King Gongmin, and made the cutest couple with Park Se-Young as Princess Nogoog. Yoon Kyun-sang debuted as a Woodalchi -- which stood him in good stead in SIX FLYING DRAGONS and REBEL. Kim Mi-kyung was totally badass as Choi Young's court lady aunt.

NB: It looks as if the Choi Young Memorial Oak may be putting in an appearance in MY SASSY [JOSEON] GIRL. ;-)

Yeah the OST is awesome!! Also Lee Min-ho's character is EXACTLY what my dream hero is. So repressed! So considerate! So intelligent! So decisive!

Oh and this was one of Sung Hoon's first dramas too, right? MAN did those clothes look good on him :P

I'm really excited about this drama. I always wondered if the Hong Sisters' version lost some things in translation. I wonder if taking the story back to its' era will clarify or make somethings make sense.

This drama isn't related to the Hong SIsters' drama Sassy Girl Chunhyang (or to the Chunhyang legend which that drama is loosely inspired by). It's based on a classic movie called My Sassy Girl with Jeon Jihyun. No connection except both having sassy in the title.

If they thought using the kiss was a good way to bait people to tune in, they've got it right.

I totally hadn't even considered watching this, but now I'm tentatively going to check it out. Might still skip if there's too much gross-out humor like in My Sassy Girl though.
