The innocent ones are coming in Revolutionary Love’s new posters
Hidden chaebol and Candy girl romance drama Revolutionary Love recently released more stills and posters of its three leads: Choi Siwon (She Was Pretty), Kang So-ra (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho), and Gong Myung (Bride of the Water God 2017). The caption for the poster on top says, “The world’s innocent ones are coming.”
For this drama, Siwon transforms into a third-generation chaebol who disguises himself as an unemployed slacker. And whilst he’s going about living his secret identity, he meets Kang So-ra, who despite her great education and qualifications, hasn’t managed to secure permanent employment. He’s followed around by his secretary and childhood friend, played by Gong Myung, who is elite in every way except for his birth. Gong Myung dreams of becoming like Siwon, but right now he works as a glorified babysitter for his immature friend, cleaning up the messes that Siwon creates.
I’m going to have so much fun watching chaebol Siwon with zero survival skills struggle with real-world dilemmas like chores and rent. It’ll be like Shopping King Louis all over again, except with the wacky charm that only Siwon brings to his roles. I’m expecting Kang So-ra to be as relatable as always in her role as the righteous underdog super part-timer.
The second poster says, “The hard woooork of the world’s innocent ones,” while showing the three main characters with items in their panels that show off their backgrounds. For instance, Kang So-ra has items related to her countless part-time jobs; Siwon has luxury goods showing his flashy lifestyle; whereas, Gong Myung makes an exasperated expression with stacks of papers on his desk (there’s also a tiny man with a parachute, shorthand for nepotism).
I’m not quite sure what to expect from Gong Myung’s character yet. I like it when he plays the optimistic puppy-dog boy, but the stills below seem to indicate he’ll be moodier than in his previous roles. I just hope that despite his jealousy of Siwon’s wealth and privilege, it doesn’t get in the way of an awesome bromance.
