Manhole goes retro for the ultimate beach holiday

You know, I’m almost sad to see KBS’s Manhole start airing, since that’ll mean no more of these wacky promos which I’m enjoying immensely. Whoever’s in charge of the promos for this show is a genius and should get a raise. Get on that, KBS!

The teaser starts with the most ‘80s intro ever, with the music and Jaejoong (Spy) emerging from the titular manhole, ensconced in white smoke for some additional retro ambiance. The intercut words say, “A normal neighborhood. Not so normal people.” We get brief scenes of Jaejoong getting doused in water and then saving someone from a house on fire in a princess carry.

He, UEE (Night Light), Jung Hye-sung (Chief Kim), and Baro (Angry Mom), together called the “crazy avengers,” spend what looks like the best beach holiday ever together. UEE says offscreen, “I’ve always known you were crazy, but you seem like even more of a crazy bastard today.” I can’t help but agree when I see Jaejoong get into all sorts of trouble, even one that gets him running away from the police, yikes. The teaser ends with the chyron, “An intense and variety-like, hard-carry time journey.”

I’m pretty excited to watch what looks like the wacky adventures of one big man-child (Jaejoong) and the mistakes he makes while time-travelling through a manhole, in order to prevent his lifelong crush from going through with a marriage. I’m also glad that the tone of the drama seems to be more irreverent comedy, which certainly differentiates it from all the other time-slip dramas we’ve seen. To be honest, I’m just looking forward to the fact that Jaejoong seems to be going no-holds-barred slightly off his rocker with his character, which looks like it’ll be a hoot. So excited to see him and his crazy friends as they get up to time-slip trouble in Manhole!

The time-slip drama will premiere on August 9 in KBS’s Wednesday-Thursday slot.

I was thinking the same thing! If it has the same tone as Best Hit, then I'm in.

This drama has one of the best promos that I've seen in a while. I hope the show itself lives up to the teasers rather than the teasers carrying the show (can they do that hahaha?). Now, just got to finish my dramas by the 9th so I can stay focused on this one! Manhole, please don't let me have to rely on the teasers to make me laugh!

I'm so ready for this. Right in time when my heart would be so darn broken because of 7DQ, I can already imagine Jaejoong picking up the pieces and making my heart feel like it's brand new. Bring it on!

Love the promos. I hope it's not just s tactic cos we've watched hilarious promos but upon telecast, its of a different genre. Eg Hogu's Love. I need something funny and fluffy to replace the Best Hit. Although I would have preferred another lead actress.

Okay I'm hyped for this one. <3

How is Jaejoong as an actor by the way? I've only seen UEE in You're Beautiful and I was already impressed with her (and would also have liked her face to be less thin these days...)

Jaejoong is a man-child in real life, his 4D personality would help him is so apt for this drama role! Hope this drama it exceeds my expectation.
