Shin Sung-rok finds his muse in Go Won-hee on KBS Perfume

Another batch of promo have been released for upcoming KBS drama Perfume, including new posters and a new video teaser.

Based on the ideas of living like there’s no tomorrow and the miracle of second chances, the story is a fantasy rom-com with an odd couple at center stage. Namely, a gifted designer plagued by a creative slump and a suspicious fashion model who just came back from hell.

Playing the gifted designer is Shin Sung-rok (An Empress’ Dignity), who’s character’s name is Seo Yi-do. And Go Won-hee (Your House Helper) plays the role of the suspicious fashion model, named Min Ye-rin.

The first poster features the two leads embracing each other amidst a cloud of cotton candy pink and sparkly swirls. In English, the caption reads: “We are meant to be.”

In the second poster, the lead characters are shown with the main supporting cast: Cha Ye-ryun (Dazzling Temptation), Kim Min-kyu (Because This Life Is Our First), and Ha Jae-sook (My Absolute Boyfriend) who plays Min Jae-hee.

In the newly released teaser, we see hints of the mysterious connection between Ha Jae-sook’s and Go Won-hee’s characters – who both share the same last name.

The video starts with Shin Sung-rok placing a vinyl record on a turntable and turning on a dramatic classical piece which plays in the background. Throughout the teaser, the shots alternate between Shin Sung-rok in the present and dream-like shots, possibly from a flashback or from Shin’s imagination. Shin Sung-rok works in a shadowy and dark green room, prepares a large sheet of red silk, touches up a drawing of red dress design, and begins cutting the fabric. In between, we see Go Won-hee wearing a similar-looking red dress, smiling brightly in the sunlight, and dancing with Shin Sung-rok while both are dressed in formal attire.

Cut to a pensive Shin Sung-rok, backlit by fuchsia colored lights and staring at the newly made red dress. He angrily walks toward the mannequin, rips the dress off, and begins tearing it apart. Intercutting shots show Shin Sung-rok and Go Won-hee smiling happily at each other in the sun, and a somber Ha Jae-sook dressed in black. Ha Jae-sook stands in a field with her eyes closed and slowly begins to open them. We cut back to a frustrated Shin Sung-rok who looks up to see Go Won-hee enter the room in another red dress. Shin speaks in voice-over, “The muse I had lost has come back.” The teaser ends with Go Won-hee and Shin Sung-rok standing together.

On the production team for Perfume, writing will be done by Choi Hyun-ok. Directing is PD Kim Sang-hwi who was one of the directors for Comrades.

KBS fantasy and romantic comedy Perfume is currently set to premiere on June 3, in just over a week, and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS.

Me too! Honestly, I have great respect for an actor who can play a villain we hate with a passion and realism that make us hate him, and also play a hero we cheer for.
He is handsome, mysterious, he looks smart...
I just like him. I want to watch the empress dignity only for him! 😍

Yay! Thank you @tccolb for the update 😊.

I like the posters and the colour pallete, especially the individual charactet posters. Teaser 1 and 2 are totally different so I can't put a hold on what the tone might be like.

I am so excited for this! So excited. Never been this excited for a drama. And I blame it on Shin Sung Rok! Hahahaha

I'm not looking forward to this. It will probably be terrible. This Shin Sun-rok dude seems a bit weird, so I'll probably hate it.

It will probably go awry and be terrible. I have reservations from the get go. The plot that has been shared is...weird. in general I like the posters for its colours and the simplicity, but the scribblings imo are cheesy πŸ§€.

This might be my only expectation for now: When the drama says the character has 50+ phobias and 20+ allergies, i hope they show them all....i'll keep count. I really don't know if it is even possible for one person to have that many phobias. How can he survive. My logic is already taking over.

Other than that..I hope Perfume will entertain me after My Fellow Citizens end. MFC is a pleasent surprise~ haha.

It could either be fantastically weird, or a completely hot mess. I'll wait and see.

Even if it doesn't work, it'd pave the way to another drama where he could be the lead once more...I have faith in SSR 😍😍😍😍

It looks like this is the year when actors who usually cast as second lead or side characters become the main lead. I'm still waiting the day when Im Ju-hwan stop giving us SLS.
As for this drama I will definitely check it, I love Go Won-hee in Waikiki and SSR as villains in everything I've watched before, so yes count me in!

Whether this is wonderful or a hot mess in a jar, I am all in because Shin Sung-rok is up there in the top three actors that can make me buy the story hook, line and sinker. Even if the story isn't great, I bet I will still enjoy parts of it. *crosses fingers and waits for the first episode*
