Holiday posters and typing struggles in latest Jugglers promos
This tandem unicycle business looks like fun! In the latest promo posters for Jugglers, main leads Baek Jin-hee (Missing 9) and Daniel Choi (Big Man) look adorable as they balance together on this strange circus contraption, with Baek Jin-hee nimbly juggling several work icon tasks. The title of the drama refers to her job, because as a secretary, she must be the ultimate multitasker and juggle many to-do lists at once.
Baek Jin-hee’s character description says that she has a self-sacrificing and supportive personality, such that she’s suited especially well for this job. But then she meets her new boss, Daniel Choi, who has no interest in interacting with other people and ends up moving into her house as a new tenant. With these charming actors, I’m hoping it’ll feel like a refreshing twist on a classic story.
The group posters bear the same caption: “An office love story that begins when secretary and boss meet.” The individual character posters highlight their personalities, with Baek Jin-hee’s saying, “Yes! Yes! I understand”; Daniel Choi saying, “Be like a person who isn’t there, like air, shhhh!!”; Kang Hye-jung (Lucid Dream) saying, “I will be patient, and wait some more”; and finally, Lee Won-geun (Mystery Queen) asking, “We have to eat, right? Have you eaten yet?” Maybe food is his Achilles heel, because that’s how Kang Hye-jung wins him over in the recently released teaser as well.
In the teaser, Kang Hye-jung announces to her friends that she’s looking for a job. Their mouths drop open because she’s lived as the perfect housewife who would never think about doing something other than supporting her family. Unfortunately, the first boss she meets is Lee Won-geun, this reckless young man who has had everything handed to him by his extremely wealthy (but also very traditional) family.
He sends her on her first task: to find him the same shoes Michael Jordan wears to buy groceries. She begins searching on her computer, and he berates her for her slowness. Fed up with his nonsense, she uses her “special powers,” aka her amazing cooking skills, to hypnotize him into finding his own shoes. In the end, Lee Won-geun hurriedly searches the net while Kang Hye-jung complains that at that pace she could have flown to America to buy the shoes and come back by now. Ha! I love it.
