Smiling to keep hope in Strongest Deliveryman

Oh, I think my heart tugged a teensy bit after watching the latest teaser for Strongest Deliveryman. It’s a drama depicting the story of a bunch of deliverymen and women for a Chinese restaurant who have less than pennies in their pockets who have to face the harsh daily realities of working a thankless job in a competitive industry. But despite it all, they somehow keep their individual hopes and dreams alive.

Go Kyung-pyo (Chicago Typewriter) takes the lead for the first time in the role of legendary delivery boy Choi Kang-soo, who is our passionate, loyal, and righteous hero. According to an interview with the actor, he even picked the unique permed hairstyle himself in order to fully immerse himself in this new persona and show off his character’s carefree personality.

His love interest/bickering partner will be played by Chae Soo-bin (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People), whose character is no slouch in the delivery business herself. She’s well-known as one of the fastest delivery people in town, but her main focus is money: She wants to earn as much as she can to escape her unsustainable paycheck-to-paycheck situation.

Chae Soo-bin gives us an inside look at the lives of delivery part-timers in the newest teaser. She tells us that even though people might think the job is just riding around on a bike and giving people their food, they have no time to rest after preparing ingredients all morning, posting flyers all afternoon, then making their runs all night. However, they don’t make enough money to even support a meager lifestyle.

Chae Soo-bin rants about how some people have to spend almost all their hard-earned income on rent, while other people (like her landlord) don’t have to do anything but sit around and watch the cash flow in. Copy tells us, “It’s okay to make mistakes,” and we hear Go Kyung-pyo reassuring her, “Don’t worry. Just trust me.” The weary tone of the teaser brightens and the copy says, “So, let’s smile.” Go Kyung-pyo’s philosophy is that even in order to do kind acts, one must be shameless, and Chae Soo-bin replies admiringly that she’s never met someone as nosy and as righteous as him.

The recently released poster shows the both leads on a motor scooter, along with second leads Kim Sun-ho (Chief Kim) and Go Won-hee (The Time I’ve Loved You ). The copy states: “100 percent pure hot-blooded youths fight against a world without even 1 degree of hope.” In addition, more stills have been released showing our actors hard at work, filming for this new youthful underdog drama.

Friday-Saturday KBS drama Strongest Deliveryman premieres on August 4, replacing The Best Hit.

He picked the hairstyle for himself? That's so adorable.
Also, I feel like this is going to be one of those dramas that is light hearted and funny, but when the time comes will make you cry? (I don't know why, but Hana Kimi [Japanese] comes to mind.)

Can't wait for this one to start -- it looks like it'll be a sweet little slice-of-life drama. Hoping for Fight My Way vibes. I'm glad to see Go Kyung-pyo and Chae Soo-bin as leads too. They both deserve the recognition.

Go Kyung-pyo especially has been growing a lot as an actor -- even though I felt he was a bit miscast (and a bit too young for his role) in Jealousy Incarnate he was still good, and then he was really wonderful in Chicago Typewriter especially the final few episodes. I've loved Chae Soo-bin since Sassy Go Go and can't wait to see her here. Hopefully the drama will give them both something fun to sink their teeth into.

I can only hope it is in no way similar to that Fight crap . These teasers atmosphere is far better.

I'm also not a fan of fight for my way. It's too bland. The best slice of life is, of course, reply 1988. Nothing come close.

It's called having different tastes!
You can dislike a show without questioning other people's enjoyment of it :)

I just have to say it. That's more like the drama depiction of a delivery person or a Quick driver. Not like the preppy dressed orphan murderer in Suspicious Partner. With his snazzy apartment. Just sayin'

That's some distinctive choice for a hairstyle.

Says something about the character--not sure what.

It also suggest that the actor is willing to put aside vanity in service of his work.

Korea has cheap nd fashionable clothes ! You can easily find a cute dress for $5. Imagine those normal prices going down during sales ! I live in Italy and here you can find cheap clothes in flea markets, the other time i bought a pale pink chiffon dress for $3 and it wasn't even old fashioned.

I think they're wearing quite basic, non fancy clothes, though they could be branded (or they just look good in anything) :P I do love Chae Soo Bin's jeans in the second still though

I'm excited for this but gonna try to not expect much for now :)
(I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than be disappointed, of course!)

I'm happy to see Go Kyung Pyo in a lead role since I loved him in Reply 1988. I also liked Chae Soo Bin in Sassy Go Go as well as Kim Sun Ho in Chief Kim (oh, he looks so good here) so it's actually hard to keep my hope low :')

I hope this will be the drama that make my week a little brighter week by week xD Please, don't disappoint me, dear show!

Why wasn't "Go Kyung Pyo picked permed hairstyle himself" the headline for a stand alone article? XD
