Park Hae-soo becomes the next Answer Me hero for Smart Prison Living

Man, that beginning montage just got me right in the heart. Upcoming black comedy Smart Prison Living is about two and a half weeks away from its premiere, and we finally get a small peek at the show, which has been cruelly sparing with its details. The clip isn’t exactly a teaser, it’s more of a behind-the-scenes video, but it gives us an introduction to one of the show’s heroes, Park Hae-soo (Legend of the Blue Sea).

The clip begins with a series of small snippets that show us all of the Answer Me heroes to date, from 1997’s Yoon Yoon-jae (Seo In-gook), to 1994’s Chilbongie (Yoo Yeon-seok) and Garbage (Jung Woo), and, of course, 1988’s Kim Jung-hwan (Ryu Joon-yeol) and Choi Taek (Park Bo-gum). Ahh, the memories, the swoons! And then, we get shots of our newest hero in his baseball uniform, with a caption reading, “The new male lead the Answer Me producers have chosen is coming!” I love how they build up the tension only to reveal his face (insert goat bleat) with a “Who… are you?” right next to him.

Park Hae-soo will be playing superstar baseball pitcher Kim Jae-hyuk, who becomes a criminal overnight due to an accident. The stage actor seems really likable in real life and is adorably shy in front of the camera when he isn’t in character. It seems like there’s a good vibe on set as well: Park Hae-soo betrays his age when he attempts to order coffee from his seat instead of going to the cashier at a cafe, and you can hear Shin PD very nearly swears jokingly as he tells him to get up off his butt, while other staff members call him an old person. It’s pretty cute how flustered Park Hae-soo gets.

Although we get a brief glimpse of Krystal (Bride of the Water God 2017) in the cafe scene—looking refreshingly un-haughty and smiling—I’m impatiently tapping my foot to see more of the ensemble cast. I mean, who wouldn’t, with names like Jung Kyung-ho (Missing 9), Choi Moo-sung (Lookout), Jung Woong-in (My Sassy Girl), Sung Dong-il (The Package), Yoo Jae-myung (Forest of Secrets), Shin Jae-ha (While You Were Sleeping), and Jung Hae-in (While You Were Sleeping) in the mix?

Smart Prison Living will follow Buam-dong Revenge Club in tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday slot, starting on November 22.

This PD can squeeze a good performance out of anyone, I'm convinced of it. I'm also looking forward to how he brings the best out of Krystal!

Any man that can make me falls head over heels for bogum after my initial thoughts that I think he's creepy weird looking, is a man that I can put faith that this drama will be great.

Yay for stage/musical actors transitioning well to tv!
Park Hae-soo (Lee Ji-ran) and Han Ye-ri ( Cheok Sa-gwang) were two of my favorites from SFD.
He's just the kind of actor I love rooting for.

I hope this is a good drama for Jung Kyung-ho and for the underappreciated Yoo Jae-myung.

Awww the AM 97 and 88 feels! <3

Park Hae Soo looks so damn adorkable!
But the way the video draws a connection between the AM series and the "new hero" makes me a lil afraid of getting a "guess the husband" in prison!

Also I now need a Jung Kyung Ho trailer.. They have been pretty stingy with trailers considering how near the release date is! (I wouldn't mind a glimpse of Kang Seungyoon either! :P)

The mention of "Prison husband" felt sooo wrong LOL.

Lmao!! Maybe they will switch it up this time to a "guess who is actually guilty" game and we won't know the answer til the end. So we would basically spend the whole series being mildly suspicious of everyone except the hero because look at his adorakable face!!!!

PD Shin Won Ho have experience in variety shows, so I can at least expect that this will not be boring. I rarely watch variety shows, but I know how much pathos and editing skills they use to capture audience hearts. And I like dark comedy, so I will definitely watch this.

Oh wow that line of cast! So many awesome ones.

My first thought: Who is Park Hae Soo?
Then I realized that he's Lee Ji-ran from SFD, I couldn't tell at all ><

So looking forward to this one.
