Lee Min-jung gets dumped

A few more shots have been released of Smile [그대 웃어요], SBS’s upcoming weekend drama starring Lee Min-jung as a bride who is jilted after news of her family’s financial ruin makes her fiance’s family cry off the union.

This particular scene was shot near the road to Incheon International Airport, and required Lee Min-jung to trudge down the street barefoot for three hours, resulting in injury to her feet. Apparently the odd sight of the actress walking dejectedly in a wedding gown caused a traffic backup on the high-speed highway as rubberneckers slowed to watch.

In the drama, her parents-in-law pressure their son to call off the marriage right after the ceremony; the bride, Jung-in, is dumped as the couple is on their way to the airport to leave for their honeymoon. (Mighty gracious of groom Lee Kyu-han, below, isn’t it?) She then runs into Hyun-soo, played by Jung Kyung-ho (last photo), an individualistic “mandoo guy” who happens to be pining after college friend Choi Yoon-jung. Jung-in and Hyun-soo’s relationship gets off to a rocky start as their two families move in together and the two bicker back and forth (which we know = true love!).

Lee said of her character, “She’s such a lovable and cute character that I fell in love with her. I plan to live as [my character] Seo Jung-in for these five months, so please keep watching.”

Smile premieres on September 26, following Style.

It sounds cliché but cute as well.. I'll probably check it out ^.^ I like the actors in the triangle so that's a plus!

She looks pretty!

I'll wait to see what reactions are before I pick it up. The storyline isn't enough to grab me; it doesn't sound very original but there have been non-original dramas that have grabbed my attention (due to good directing/producing).

The more I hear about this drama, the more happy I am. It sounds like a bucket of fun. Plus, it's about time Lee Min-Jung got a lead role!

Hmmm, this sounds really really close to the Taiwanese drama "Corner with Love" with Barbie Xu and Alan Luo.

Poor Lee Kyu-Han. I actually really like him and wish he got to be a lead in at least one drama somewhere.

I've been keeping an eye out for this since I read your first post on it. Not entirely sure I'll like the drama but I quite like the three actors pictured in this post so I'm planning to check it out.

Any idea if that drama that-might've-been about the straight guy posing as a gay guy to room with a woman (there was talk they would be played by Yoon Eun-hye and Joon Ji-hoon, if I remember correctly) will ever be brought to the screen? I'd definitely watch that, le sigh.

it reminded me of corner with love toooo(: i want to watch this. it sounds cliche ridden but i love the (overused?) setup too much to care. hahah.

& @5, i don't think that drama is ever going to happen. which is unfortunate because i loved that setup tooo.

Oh shoot, looks like Jung Kyung-ho cut off his beautiful long hair. Boo!! :-(

I liked JKH in Time of Dog and Wolf, and have also liked everything I've seen by Lee Kyu-han (the "always the bridesmaid, never the bride" guy with impossibly long eyelashes). He was great as a serial killer in Hon!

This one is on my list to watch.

What does 'mandoo' mean? Individualistic?

I've always loved the forced proximity and bickering cliches so I'm hoping they'll do this one well.

I am actually anticipating this. The names aren't big and it feels like everyone's on the same level of playing field, it's like a more mellow drama in terms of hype. But I'm hoping for great things. I can feel Lee Minjung and Jung Kyungho's chemistry already, haha.

Oh I absolutely love her wedding dress! I am engaged and getting married at the end of June, so right now I have bridal fever :) Sounds like a cute drama, but I can't believe she had to walk bare foot for three hours! That's just craziness! But oh my goodness, I love love love that dress, and her hair too! :)

I loved Lee Min-jung in Boys Over Flowers. I thought she had great chemistry with Lee Min Ho and I prefered watching her scenes than Koo Hye Sun's scenes.
I was cheering that they changed Boys Over Flowers plot and made Junpyo stay with Lee Min Jung's character.
