Cast of Manhole throws dignity out the window for new dance teaser

Bahahahaha! I can’t contain my laughter at this latest teaser from Manhole, the upcoming time-slip fantasy rom-com starring Jaejoong (Spy) and UEE (Night Light). They’re dancing to the viral internet sensation “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” song, and it’s absolutely hilarious. Sure, it adds almost zero info about the time adventure plotline of the drama, but I’ve been playing it on nonstop repeat for the past hour, so that must count for something, right?

The drama Manhole is about a unemployed neighborhood bum named Bong Pil, played by Jaejoong, who accidentally discovers a manhole that lets him travel through time, but the downside is that he can’t control his time-destination. When his best female friend (also the woman he’s been crushing on one-sidedly for the past 28 years of his life), played by UEE, suddenly announces her impending wedding, he immediately thinks the manhole will be the key to his main mission: Go back in time and capture his girl’s heart.

Unfortunately for him, but funny for us, he ends up in random times where any tiny action he takes creates a butterfly effect, changing the present. So the drama will largely be Jaejoong making mistakes through time and going back through the manhole to fix them, all the while trying to get his one true love to fall for him. I wasn’t sure if this would just be a modernized repeat of Operation Proposal, but the tone of this teaser suggests otherwise.

The teaser highlights the four main cast members, UEE and Jaejoong with Jung Hye-sung (Chief Kim) and Baro (Angry Mom). Altogether, the text that floats above their heads while they dance says: “Summer 2017, these reckless kids are coming. Time transcendence fantasy comedy adventure.” Their serious deadpanned expressions contrasted with their unashamed flippity-flop dance moves is comedic gold!

KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Manhole begins on August 9.

I laughed so hard at this!
Can't believe they're doing this with straight faces.
They have better dance moves than me though, lmao.

It's their straight faces that makes this ridiculous mess even more hilarious. I'm dying. But, I feel like Uee looks a lot skinnier than before. I hope she's okay.

I think that she looks much better in the past but something must have gone wrong so her face is now so V-shape like that. Anyway, I just so hope that's she's doing fine as I think she looks too skinny ... too too skinny.

She did her face, before Marriage contract. I don't think she hides this, as it's so obvious. She used to have chubby face, which was very cute. Not that she's not beautiful here. I really like her in Marriage contract, not bothered at all with her change.

omg this is the best! I re-watched MDBC "Bombastic" dance video about 15 times and this is just as awesome as that.

Man I would be so embarrassed to be them. In some of the shots you can see they are by a very busy road and you probably have people driving by thinking 'What the hell are those crazy people doing?'

I want their PJs...

They're right in the middle of 'downtown' Seoul near the King Sejong statue (close to where MDBC Boombastic was filmed, too!), I was dying knowing how many people must have seen them film this.

I am not sure what to think about this. Another time-travel related drama! Not sure i can (will) watch... although it seems pretty fun. Maybe i will just only read the recaps... oh why, why koreans have to be so attractive???!!!! 😱

I'm feeling second hand embarrassment from this πŸ˜‚ it's too hilarious!

The synopsis does remind me of Operation Proposal tho. But no matter how much I forever love YSH and his portrayal of a somewhat mediocre character, that drama was absolute crap. The story, they way it went back and forth with no end in sight... I don't know if I'm ready to see another drama with a similar synopsis.

Plus, comic trailers (that have nothing to do with the plot or tone of the show) seem to be all the rage now & I don't mind because they are so fun. I think I first saw the style in first trailer of MDBC.

This totally sounds like jdrama operation proposal. Plagiarism much? Sigh, at least they could have said, 'inspiration taken from the said drama or something'.
And yeah, Uee is totally unrecognizable here. Can't fathom all the hype with losing weight with Korean actors, first park shin hye, now Uee. :S

Its maybe sound like that Japanese dorama but i think the whole story thing is different from that, I'm gonna wait for more details from this drama.
But quite funny though the main lead yamapi from the Japanese dorama is jaejoong best friends

The Manhole characters' dance routine in this teaser is crazy weird funny! And for them to keep at it with such serious faces is pure gold! Haha!! Hope we get to see the BTS of the 4 of them cracking up! Bet they made a lot of 'NG's'! :D Looking forward to Manhole (it'll be my first drama of Jaejoong)!

On a different note, I'm quite concerned about UEE. She is freakishly skinny now (it's a far cry from how she looked in "You're Beautiful") that it doesn't even look healthy or appealing at all! Frankly, she looks anorexic to me. Hope her family, friends and management are making sure that she's not doing anything detrimental to her health.. before it's too late. :(
