Kim Sun-ah and Cha Seung-won dance for City Hall

It’s press conference day for City Hall!

On the 16th, the cast was at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Seoul to talk about the upcoming SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama, which is probably most anticipated for its leading lady, Kim Sun-ah. She stars opposite leading man Cha Seung-won in the upbeat, comic series (watch preview below).

Everyone’s eyes are on Kim’s return — it hasn’t been that long since her previous series, last summer’s When Night Comes with Lee Dong-gun, but that series flopped and Kim is still most recognizable for her 2005 turn as Kim Sam-soon.

City Hall‘s chief producer expressed confidence that it would be a big hit, while On Air writer Kim Eun-sook calls City Hall the “most fun drama I’ve written so far.”

The series seems light and funny — which is something Kim Sun-ah does well — but it’s got competition. KBS and MBC are also premiering romantic comedies featuring big-name movie stars:

MBC’s Cinderella Man stars Kwon Sang-woo (although it got off to a tepid start yesterday with a 9.3% rating), and KBS’s Six Months just changed its name to Just Looking or While I Was Looking [그저 바라 보다가] and stars Kim Ah-joong and Hwang Jung-min. The latter premieres on the same day as City Hall — April 29.

This all makes for an interesting TV landscape: Monday-Tuesdays are going to sageuk nights for a long while (excepting my current infatuation, the dark Story of a Man), while Wednesday-Thursdays will be dominated by trendy dramas. It’s too bad, actually; I wish the stations mixed it all up for some variety rather than trying to go head to head, genre to genre.

KSA looks incredible! The show's clip seems light and hearty. I think I will tune into this one. The clip reminds me of Miss Congeniality. Hopefully this will be a hit for KSA!

For myself, I look forward to City Hall mainly because of Cha Seung-Won; I also think that he's the biggest star of this show. :) He's great in comedies, he established himself as The King Of Comedy in the film industry.

Well, Six Months (or Just Looking now) is still my most anticipated Wed/Thu drama.
The trailer of City Hall don't help.

Kim Sunah, wow. She looks just, awesome. I root for her, I root for the series, and I think this one will be just great.

(Still, a very very very small part of me thinks Kim Sunah is being a little bit of a tart, no? - after all, didn't Hyun Jin-heon tell her, "appooroh, juh jashik i dun, noo goo dun, noon matchiji mah. mal do haji mal go, dut go ji mah. neh mal man dulreoh..."? Doesn't "noo goo dun" imply that she shouldn't be hugging Cha Seung-Won even by accident? So that small part of me is kind of wishing Heon-i is going to leap out of the woodwork out, kick some Cha butt and just grab Kim Sunah's wrist again.) Yes, I am kidding, mostly. :D

Wow. She looks fantastic! Because she dressed herself down so much for MNIKSS and that is the picture of her I have most vivid in my mind, its easy to forget what a gorgeous woman she is.

Some part of me wants Sam-shik to suddenly appear and grab her hands then drag her out of the building! Love it Samsooki..that was funny..

Actually there's more to the preview, and there's a really really funny scene that was a little unexpected for me to see...

It's so hypocritical of me.... isn't it?

I don't get the same ambivalent feeling when I see Hyun Bin in Snow Queen, holding hands with Sung Yu Ri....

So why do I feel a slight bit of hurt and jealousy when Cha Seung Won gets to hug and be hugged by Kim Sunah? Can't Kim Sunah do other roles without being firmly anchored to Kim Sam Soon?

Chut-sarang.... I think that's what it is. You never forget your first love.

I also look forward to "Six Months"... er.. "When I was looking", but because of Cha Seung-won, I'll most definitely be watching this ^^

Ok. That looks funny and the leads seem to have nice chemistry together (*knocks on wood*) though I agree with you guys, it's not going to be easy to beat Sam Soon + Jin-heon! Heh

@Samsooki. Hee! I love your "I'm kidding, mostly" It's the "mostly" that does it for me. LOL

Question: how come in every forum/comm I browse there're people suffering from BBF withdrawal and that don't know what to watch next?!? I have a huuuuuge "must-watch" list, which keeps growing and...am I the only one?

Kim Sun Ah looks fab. Her haircut really suits her. Did you see her in Bi's (Rain) comeback special on MBC? She did a dance routine with him and she's pretty good for working two weeks and going live onstage in front of a huge crowd.

Gotta love her!

@robbo4,

"Kim Sun-ah in a comedy…I wonder if she can pull it off?!!!"

Oh I know! My Name is Kim Sam Soon was so gut-wrenching that I wept for a week when Daniel Henney's character died from hair cancer. And why was everybody Filipino? Yup, Kim Sun Ah and comedy. That makes as much sense as Han Ji Min and Big and Tall Clothing Stores.

@sere,

"Question: how come in every forum/comm I browse there’re people suffering from BBF withdrawal and that don’t know what to watch next?!? I have a huuuuuge “must-watch” list,"

Oh I know!

If you miss Lee Min Ho's pama, check out Cinderella Man.
If you miss Jandi, wait until City Hall or check out Han Ji Min's hair in Cain and Abel.
If you can't be bothered to change the channel on Mondays and Tuesday, check out Story of a Man.
If you miss people who come from Nonstop 5, wait another week for Shining Inheritance.
If you miss BBF THAT much, dude, wait a few more months before the Mando version comes out.

Ditto - I've been keeping a rapidly-growing TODO list of dramas to watch (yes, a TODO list..because I am ridiculous) and now I'm so lost I don't know where to start. There are the dramas I was casually watching that I have to finish, the dramas I've always wanted to watch, the dramas I just heard about, the dramas currently airing, the dramas coming up.... I have kdramas, jdoramas, a couple Taiwanese dramas.....

Gonna have to take a couple months off work to get through all this.

Still, a very very very small part of me thinks Kim Sunah is being a little bit of a tart, no? - I agree Samsooki. She's a flirt isn't she? And I think I love her even more for it.

Neway, can't wait for this. Despite all its flaws, I loved When It's At Night. And I am sure I'm gonna love this too.

"My Name is Kim Sam Soon was so gut-wrenching that I wept for a week when Daniel Henney’s character died from hair cancer."
ROTFLMAO!

"If you miss BBF THAT much, dude, wait a few more months before the Mando version comes out."
Ahahaha. But I've already heard *nasty* comments about alternative BBF versions. Which I don't get at all. I mean, aren't we all entitled to have our own opinions, to like what we like and dislike what we don't like? I don't get why people have to be *mean* about it and start bashing characters/actors/pairings just because they are not the ones they love? /end of rant/

@Liv
It'll take me years to get through mine...if I stopped adding new stuff now, which is not gonna happen. *headdesk*

@belleza,

You are so funny. But, I read very earnestly when I see your posts, especially after reading so many of your posts back over at d-addicts forums, so I read literally when I read your posts. So I started with your first line:

'Oh I know! My Name is Kim Sam Soon was so gut-wrenching that I wept for a week... "

And so I thought back, and I thought to myself, hmmm, I didn't weep for a week, but I did tear up a lot.... maybe belleza is just more sensitive to things that happened? Maybe she was more affected by Lee In-hye's first kiss turning out so, so, so badly than I was?? I mean, I felt bad for her, but I also think that she'll get over it and maybe she'll be a stronger person in the future because of it?? But why was Belleza so affected by things like that??

"...when Daniel Henney’s character died from hair cancer."

ah-ni.... WHAT?????? WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN... I have the DVDs, I bought the DVD set TWICE in fact to ensure that I would never not have a copy of my own, I watch scenes from the drama regularly.... Was this revelation some sort of post-production documentary or secret ending that I never got to see??? How come Belleza gets all these inside details and I don't???? Hmmm, how do I feel about the hair cancer death? I feel.... ambivalent? Why am I not sad that "Dr. Henry Kim" dies of hair cancer... .wait... wait...what exactly is hair cancer?

"...And why was everybody Filipino? Yup, Kim Sun Ah and comedy. That makes as much sense as Han Ji Min and Big and Tall Clothing Stores."

hehe, ahhh, sarcasm. Whew! :) I get it now! Heehee. Belleza, you made my Friday. LOL!
