Playful Kiss kids in uniform

Gah, and what ugly uniforms they are. Boys Before Flowers may have featured indecently short schoolgirl outfits more suited for adult-fun-times role playing, but at least they were cute. The three leads of Playful Kiss are featured in the August 6 broadcast of MBC’s Section TV Entertainment Report, which found the trio at the drama’s poster shoot.

Above we have the two leads, Kim Hyun-joong and Jung So-min. Aside from the ugly brown, they look very cute together. Alas, why does Lee Tae-sung (below) look like Duckie?

On the upside, the kids look like they have good rapport, and hopefully that’ll translate onscreen. If it doesn’t, well, something tells me the drama will be entertaining anyway.

Playful Kiss premieres on September 1, and airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays opposite Baker King Kim Tak-gu and My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho. Tough timeslot! It’ll be interesting to see how things shake out, since the dramas (particularly Kiss and Girlfriend) are bound to cut into each other’s audiences.)

Correction: I should have said, Why does he look like a cheap dime-store Guido version of Duckie?

I agree that there's leeway when characters are being adapted from a manga adaptation. But they're being adapted from an old format to suit a new one, and hence should actually suit the new one. He just looks like a cartoon character. Poor dude.

it's okay. Kin-chan character is pretty cartoony - very animated. i think the hairstyle further adds wackiness and out-of-this world characteristic to an already over-the-top individual - who no one really takes serious. so i think in Lee Tae Sung's case, it works.

I always thought that JSM looked like the main lead in Buzzer Beat and KHJ looked like Yamapi. The first still totally reminds me of the couple in BB!

Anyway, I love Jung So Min! <3

And Tae Sung never gets the girl, does he? ):

reading about the interview they did in those pictures, raises my expectation a little bit.
I like real life Kim Hyun Joong - the one he shows on variety shows, - so I hope this character is more fitting than his on BOF.
I try not to look at the color of the uniform, but those three look great together, and it's good to see JSM and KHJ look close - I always thought KHJ scares of women. :P

"He just looks like a cartoon character. "

Yeah, but it's based on a comic. I guess the hair tips off that he's a loudmouth Kansai biker gang/yakuza-in-training kind of guy.

Heh. Well, uniforms in real life are often a travesty so I'll give it a pass. But BOF uniforms, for the girls, were ugly too! or at least, that's what i remember thinking... i don't remember finding them too short - or maybe my public school gene, where girls always hitched them up indecently, is coming out.

the other uniforms in the other stills were so cute - why did they mess with a good thing?

I hated KHJ as the lead but i'm anticipating the drama because of JSM, She totally give the ariel lin or lead female vibe... I find myself looking at her because of her expression although there are 2 good looking men besides her.

I think the reason LTS has the ugly hair is that producer forgot the manga was from from japan where japanese audience can totally relate with the yankee and biker style. He should had followed the chinese producer by toning it down and making the character some the korean drama fans would understand..

You know... there's something about Kim Hyun Joong that's off. He ALWAYS looks so damn tired and like he's zoning off.

And the color of the uniforms are gross. Looks like poop color.

Will not watch this until people actually say it's good. I don't want to waste time on another drama like BOF!

hopefully they wont wear their ugly blazers that much...the first stills of the rest of the uniform looked fine......i bet and hope that this and my girlfrnd grind is a gumiho will take some of the ratings of baker king...seriously i dnt know why its getting so much attention...its ur pretty normal standard kdrama...with a lot of plot inconsistencies... and the acting is mediocre...sorry, just my opinion

...haha just finished BG...nd hating JSM's character...its gonna be hard to forget what she did to our gun wook lol...but she looks adorable in these pictures....hope they do well

Cute~

In It Started With a Kiss, the second lead was charming, albeit quite dorky, but for some reason I can't seem to make myself like LTS. He's got that greasy and douche-y look about him. I hope these photos will do him no justice when the series comes out...I guess we'll just have to see if he can pull of the role with that car crash of a hairstyle...

Also, I think that first pic is really adorable, it really gives off the essence of the characters imo (or what I'd imagine they'd be like). KHJ could look a little more ruthless though.

Seriously, the color of the uniform look so ugly. Since they are shooting in summer, maybe that ugly vest would not be wear too much.

The main leads look really cute together. Hopefully KHJ's acting will be improve.

I don't like the female's lead characters in "Itazura na kiss "manhwa though, let's see is there any change in Kdrama version. I wonder ( correct me if I'm wrong) why most of Japanese's manhwa author always built the image of male lead so perfect compare to female's, he would be handsome, very talented but cold, she would be clumsy and not so intelligent but brave and friendly.

Well, but many romantic comedy drama are in this pattern, right? like "lovely" You're beautiful or Full House...

omg, they're giving Lee Taesung the hairstyle of his character in the manga! yikes! *cringe* hopefully they get rid of it for the actual show! But then I think the producers want to make sure that KHJ gets the spotlight instead of giving the audience in-love-with-second-lead-syndrome.

as for the jackets-- maybe they won't have to wear them too much. In the other stills, they didn't wear the jackets!

Is that Lee Tae Sung?! Lolz, I think he really look sooo good with his bad "cool" hairstyle, oh yeaaah! Ah, it really remind me of watching that old movie "Grease" by actor John Travolta, hehe!

Ooh, this uniform -- Brown?? How interesting, but it's just no big deal to me that this school uniform look very unique than other different colors of uniform, yupz.

How cute! (from these pictures) Heh, I can't wait to see that!

Those uniforms are ugly. Strange, because in some of the stills I've seen of the cast shooting, it looks like the uniforms they're wearing are a pretty shade of blue. I wonder if they got switched half-way through or something.

The uniforms are gorrid but in the anime the clothers were brown but in the
first poster pic KHJ looks like he is a zombie.
But otherwise the chemistry seem okay, it even might be that Lee Tae-sung stelas the thuner from KHJ if he is as funny as Jiro was in the TW version.

>> hahahahaha oh my god JB! that just made me literally laugh out loud! yeah poor guy! he's gonna look idiotic next to KHJ with that hair! and out of all the nice and soothing to the eyes color out there, the outfit coordinator of the show chose "poop brown"?! (well that's how i can describe that ugly brown)... oh well, i'm gonna check this out even though i'm more excited with Seunggi's Gumiho GF LOL!

SO CUTEEE! Lots of chemistry between the leads, and KHJ actually looks the part. This drama would probably be really funny guessing from the other guys 'do, but still looking forward to it as I was a HUGE fan of ISWAK and TKA. And as for mo-nae er jung so min, who cares what her previous acting role was, she's super cute here and she owns it!! This one drama I'm gonna watch first before reading the recaps here (if ever there will be *cross fingers*)

i want to watch this drama so bad
even with this ugly brown uniforms
they could ask me for better uniform & i would do it for free

anyway

i love the main cast

i think ...

Kim Hyun-joong will act in this drama better than boys before flowers
the role suit him

Jung So-min i don't know her but she looks cute & hopefully the dumbest in this drama

Lee Tae-sung ... i'm glad that they cast him in this drama & his hairstyle is the best so far ...

got to agree that uniform were so unflattering and it really looks like baby poop.
i do hope that they dont wear that jacket too much. it hurts in the eyes.

but its good to see that the OTP looks so cute together.
JSM looking jolly and sweet. Seeing KHJ smile on the pics was a good change considfering that he's supposed to be cold hearted and quiet all the time.

and the "why does Lee Tae-sung look like Duckie?" comment made my day and he is really looking like one. i do hope they at least tone it down a bit.

well, this pics gets my excitement rising, i do hope it wont SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT.

JB thanks again!
