New posters and a teaser for You’re My Pet
Me-ow. Well they were certainly going for sex kitten with the poster concept, only they seem to have split the difference, sexy for Kim Haneul and… just kitty for Jang Geun-seok. How come he gets bad hair, a furry sweater AND a box, while she gets a shirt and a cheeky lolli? A few more posters and a teaser (finally!) are out for the upcoming November release of highly anticipated rom-com remake You’re My Pet, and so far, they’ve done a good job of keeping my interest in the strange pairing between a noona and her pet.
Kim Haneul looks even better here than in the first poster, all come-hither tease with the tagline: “Come on, baby,” while Jang Geun-seok’s poster goes for the cutesy pet-on-your-doorstep vibe, with the tagline: “Would you like to try raising me?”
The trailer looks fun, and shows the pair in a pretty literal interpretation of the pet-master relationship, where Kim Haneul is the uptight careerwoman and Jang Geun-seok is the new puppy that she has to housebreak. I didn’t know he was actually going to ACT like a pet, which just makes it all the more ridiculous and awesome. The premise of raising a man-pet is batty anyway, so why not just run with it?
At the end of the teaser he crawls into her bed like a puppy and when she balks, he assures her, “I only touched your breasts, nothing else!” Pffffft. Down boy. I sort of can’t believe that no one’s thought to cast Jang Geun-seok as a man-puppy until now. Doesn’t this just seem tailor-made for him alone?
You’re My Pet premieres in November. Between this and Penny-Pinching Romance, it looks like we’ve got a battle of the noona killers going on. Aw, and it’s not even my birthday.
