Making it rain in Revolutionary Love
Aw, I’m gonna miss these promos. Though I’m sure Choi Siwon’s (She Was Pretty) goofiness will more than make up for the cute. We’re three weeks away from the premiere of upcoming youth romance Revolutionary Love, and tvN has released another teaser for its newest weekend offering.
One of this show’s biggest draw for me is Choi Siwon’s utterly helpless hidden chaebol character who decides to try his hand at living outside his rich bubble, which is bound to make for an adorable relationship with Kang So-ra’s (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho) veteran part-timer. I can just picture him trailing her around like a duckling, to her unending exasperation.
If their dynamic is anything like what’s shown in this teaser, for example, I’ll be a happy camper. The clip starts with close-ups of Choi Siwon looking up at Kang So-ra, and then for some reason, water comes splashing down onto his face and shirt. I love how it’s shot in slow-motion, suggesting some playful, couple-y frolicking, until the music cuts short and the camera abruptly zooms out to reveal that he’s actually wrestling with a water jug, hah.
Mind you, those are really heavy, so I wouldn’t have laughed as much if not for Kang So-ra in the back effortlessly picking one up and slinging it over one shoulder. I admit to giggling a lot at Kang So-ra’s face, ‘cause her expression just encapsulates so much disbelief as she watches him struggle to gain control of his water jug. She walks off after saying, “No, this isn’t it,” leaving Choi Siwon to stare and grin after her. Aww, don’t give up on the puppy!
Revolutionary Love will premiere on October 14 and take over tvN’s weekend slot from Live Up to Your Name.
