Romance Town’s Sung Yuri goes back to high school

Sung Yuri may be 30 years old, but she jumps back about a decade in these stills, dressed in a high school uniform to play the teenage version of her Soon-geum character in Romance Town. I’d say she looks fine as a student…if only the boy cast as her classmate didn’t look like he hasn’t even hit puberty yet. Seriously? He looks like he’s half her age. (He probably IS — he just shouldn’t look it.)

From the stills, it looks like Soon-geum wasn’t exactly the most conscientious student in her youth. She’s described as a bright, lively personality, so I’m expecting a bit of attitude (not the bad kind, just the outspoken kind) and a maybe a dash of bravado.

The KBS drama recently began filming and is now in the thick of shoots. In addition the main cast of Sung Yuri and Min Hyo-rin as maids, and Jung Kyeo-woon and Kim Min-joon as chaebols, the drama has filled out its supporting roles as well:

Im Ye-jin will play Sung Yuri’s mother, and she’s a familiar face you’ll probably recognize from playing mom to other young stars like Yoon Eun-hye (in Goong), Gu Hye-sun (in Boys Before Flowers) and Kim Tae-hee (in My Princess). She’ll have a bickering relationship with her daughter


Im Ye-jin, Yang Jung-ah, Park Ji-young

Another addition to the cast is actress Yang Jung-ah (The Man Who Can’t Get Married), who’ll play Soon-geum’s sharp, cutting employer; she’s the second wife to a rich man who traded up from his middle-aged first wife for a younger trophy with sleek good looks and expensive designer taste.

Then there’s Park Ji-young (The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry), who plays a “glamorous maid” (meaning: voluptuous, sexy) whose ex-husband took her son away following their divorce. She now works as the domestic help to make ends meet, and falls in love with her employer, played by Lee Jung-gil (Athena’s president). It’s not a sordid affair, though, since she’ll have a “reversal of fate” thanks to her romance. Aw, I love stuff like this — it’s kind of obvious emotional manipulation, but when the discarded and unappreciated first wife finds a better man who happens to be even richer and more generous than her first dastardly husband, I’m totally there, rooting her on.

Romance Town premieres on May 11.

Sorry..Sung Yuri is a pretty girl. But this is just is..hahahahhahahhaha..She doesn't look right. She's never been known as one of the younger than her girls. Pretty, yes!!

Then again I thought Choi Jiwoo looked absolutely ridiculous in Winter Sonata, so maybe it'll still work. I think the closest thing to looking alright as a high school student for someone over 25 years old was Yoon Eun Hye in her latest movie. She looked surprisingly good as a high school student in that movie.

I actually think she looks kind of old and tired in the first picture >_< Not old as in, omg she's 30! way but more like in trying to make her look young they went the other way, because in regularly pictures of her, I can't tell she's 30.

Hey, it's that Mister with the famous line "What does your father do for a living?". HAHAHA. He's a teacher again. I love shows that have flashbacks to school. They're so much fun. I'm getting excited for this drama even more now.

That' what I thought. Sung Yuri lost that youthful look she sports in Hong Gil Dong, in my opinion. Maybe it's the hair.

i agree with JB that boy in the b/ground looks like he's only 15 the most, :) they shld have someone there closer to her age at least? is this another drama she's in or am i confusing this with the housekeeper which they're still scouting for a title?

Sung Yuri does look young, but man, that boy in the background does look like her nephew or something, definately not a peer.

The funniest adult wearing a high school uniform that I've seen has to be Lee Byung Joon in the sitcom Elephant. He is suppose to be an old man and isn't playing a younger man by wearing the uniform (he's just re-entering high school as an adult) but he looked absolutely ridiculous. Plus, he has such a unique voice that contrasts him and the uniform even more.

To me, Park Ji Young will always be 'Chang Nok Soo'-she was awesomely beautiful in that 1995 drama.

it's sort of weird seeing her dressed up as a high school student - yes, she looks young, but I remember when she really was just high school age and was in the girl group fin.K.L.

love the hoodie under the high school uniform jacket look!

How gorgeous is Park Ji-young? It sounds a little like her character from The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry.

I don't know, she just has this really quiet, understated elegance about her.

I WANT TO BE HER WHEN I GROW UP, although as a purposely-fashion-ignorant scientist, that is probably not going to happen.

She kind of reminds me of Kim So Eun here for some reason. Agreed she does pull of the high school student look but the boy in the background does her no favors LOL.
