Romance and intimidation in new promo for My Fellow Citizens
A new poster and teaser have been released for KBS’s upcoming comedy My Fellow Citizens featuring its three leads: Choi Siwon (Revolutionary Love), Kim Min-jung (Mr. Sunshine), and Lee Yoo-young (Your Honor).
The story is about a con artist named Yang Jung-kook (Choi Siwon) who finds himself in two unlikely relationships. He falls in love with and marries Kim Mi-young (Lee Yoo-young) who’s unaware of his real “occupation” as a scammer. Further complicating their relationship, she’s also been lying, as her real job is a police officer. As if that wrinkle wasn’t enough, loan shark Park Hoo-ja, (Kim Min-jung)
strong-arms enlists him for a larger scale con — to fool the nation and run for office to become a politician.
In the released poster, we see a glimpse of this cross-wired relationship in a more visual way. Lee Yoo-young handcuffs a flummoxed Choi Siwon, while Kim Min-jung points a gun at him from under her crossed arms. The caption says: “A satisfying attempt at it for the sake of the powerless.”
The teaser starts with Choi Siwon throwing and scattering money into the air. We then see a series of quick cuts in tune with the beat of the music playing in the background. A woman and then Choi Siwon is seen running. Someone gets hit by a car. Lee Yoo-young attacks someone with a baseball bat. Kim Min-jung looks at someone being held down on a pool table. Someone flips through a wad of cash. Lee Yoo-young is still on a rampage. A car tire spins, then the car drives away. Choi Siwon sniffs another wad of money, then gets pushed away.
The teaser then cuts to a montage of Choi Siwon and Lee Yoo-young’s first meeting and ensuing romance. We hear lyrics being sung to the song in the background: “When I confess…” The song then pauses as the scene cuts to Kim Min-jung saying, “Oh, you are cool.” Resuming where it left off, the song lyrics continue as the teaser comes to an end: “You’ll be really surprised!”
Writing for KBS’s new comedy drama will be done by writer Han Jung-hoon (Vampire Prosecutor, Bad Guys). And directing will be helmed by PD Kim Jung-hyun (Jugglers).
My Fellow Citizens is set to premiere next month on April 1, and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS.
