Posters and teaser for ghostly rom-com Chilling Romance

Here’s a sneak peek at Chilling Romance, the upcoming romantic comedy with a supernatural twist, starring Sohn Ye-jin and Lee Min-ki. I didn’t know what to expect with the tone of the film, given that it’s about a woman who sees ghosts after a near-death experience and a magician who conjures ghosts, but now that the posters and teaser are out, it looks even cuter and funnier than expected.

Lee and Sohn look ADORABLE together, not that we ever doubted that, and a lot of the promotional material features Sohn in the following states: drunk, drunker, and drunkest. Either her character is a serious lush (see: impressive array of empty bottles, below) or she’s possessed by the ghost of Charlie Sheen.

It’ll be nice if they actually try to be spooky and suspenseful with the ghostly elements, and not just go for the laugh and/or cute factor. If they can manage to be Beetlejuicy, I may have found my new favorite movie of the season. There really needs to be more horror comedy in Korean film. No, scratch that. There needs to be more horror comedy everywhere.

Chilling Romance hits theaters in December.

You make it sound like Bollywood is all that bad. Give me the Shahrukh Khans, Kajols, Saif Ali Khans, and Preity Zintas of this world, the K3Gs, KKHHs, and Jab We Mets and I'll be one happy camper.

P.S. I have to admit that I haven't seen a decent Bollywood movie in quite some time, so maybe I can understand why you're unhappy about your predicament.

If you want political overtones, try Lagaan (this one is a period piece set during the British Raj and has tons of cricket and also hungry, starving peasants and some really snooty British bastards, but mostly cricket), Rang De Basanti, and Fanaa (this one's got terrorists). (You can tell I don't watch many of these.) (They also feature the same actor. This is not a coincidence.)

If you want easy, breezy romance, try Love Aaj Kal, Jab We Met, Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na (I'd watch for the soundtrack alone, but it's charming all over), Bunty Aur Babli (Cons! Heists! Shenanigans!), Salaam Namaste, Veer-Zaara, Dil Chahta Hai, Hum Tum (Bollywood's When Harry Met Sally), and Dil Bole Hadippa (this one has cross-dressing! And, okay, it's got cricket, but also cross-dressing!).

If you're in the mood for drama, try Devdas (2002 and 1955; more alcohol than your average frat boy can easily consume and has the corroded liver to prove it), Saaathiya, Jodhaa Akbar, My Name is Khan, Kal Ho Na Ho, Parineeta (2005), Vivah (okay, so this one's hetero-normative like whoa, but adorable nonetheless), Taare Zameen Par (this one's plot is centered very firmly on a dyslexic child), Saathiya, Koi Mil Gaya (Flowers for Algernon meets ET), and anything with Amitabh Bachchan ever.

If you want humor, try Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (these two feature the same characters, though they are independent of each other) and 3 Idiots (this one defies characterization; it's flipping hilarious, but will also make you sob like your heart is breaking. Seriously, if you watch nothing else on this list, watch this one).

If you want OTT Bollywood ridiculousness, try Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge (this one's a childhood favorite), Main Hoon Naa, Om Shanti Om (though I'd recommend watching this with a Bollywood buff to get all the in-jokes), Don (2006; this one is also really action-heavy), and Dabangg (more action! and a really freaking weird courtship, but whatever) and Aaja Nachle.

Some old ones: Pakeezah, Umrao Jaan (1981), Sholay, Mughal-e-Azam. I don't watch much that was produced before the early nineties, so I can't help much if you want vintage Bollywood. I've watched every movie here, though, and I can vouch for the quality thereof--these are some really good movies, I promise!

Have fun watching!

I love Bollywood so much and will you think it is strange if I say have watched all the movies you motioned expect the old ones...

@Noozie believe it or not I've seen every one of them. Taare Zameen Par is my fave Bollywood film. Amir Khan <3

Ah, can I throw in two of my favorites to this list? "Three Idiots" with the every fabulous Amir Khan and "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi" with the King himself - SRK...

Eek, as I read your list, I realized I even own most of the ones you mentioned. *sigh* Gosh, I love Bollywood!

I am so delighted this turned into a Bollywood thread.

Lol, you guys are great.

I actually really, really didn't like KANK. It was a very visually interesting film, and the characters therein were really complicated and flawed and shit, but I felt like the movie was manipulating tears out of me with OTT histrionics as opposed to moving me with genuine emotion.

Funny story about that one, though. I went to see it with a huge chunk of my extended family--over twenty of us, I think--based on the fact that 1) Karan Johar directed it, and 2) SRK was in it, so it was a family film, duh! (Obviously, none of us had read the previews.) I actually got stuck between my grandparents, so when the sex scene came on, oh God, I wanted to die. And we had a bunch of little kids with us, so there was a constant stream of "Is it done yet?", "Can we watch now?", and the classic "How come you guys get to watch the bad stuff?"

I don't really like Khabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham either. I've seen it one too many times to take seriously and the conflict is basically "Big B needs to get his head out of his ass long enough to realize that it's really not that big of a deal. Not enough to sustain that behemoth.

Hahaha. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was my first Bollywood film, and I pretty much fell in love from there. I fell in love with K3G just because it's my second from the world of Bollywood, but even I can understand why some people do not like it. I'm surprised Baghban wasn't on your list... that is until you said "every Amitabh Bachchan movie ever". I swear I was skeptical watching that movie because I was still in the SRK and Kajol fangirl mode, but dammit I never fail to cry when I watch it. You've mentioned a good deal of the movies I've seen.

For KANK, geez did I hate that movie. I loved the music and have most of the soundtrack on my music player today, but I wanted to kick the writer(s) in the arse after watching the movie. Never again will I watch KANK ever again. I also enjoyed Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, even if I rolled my eyes at some of the plot points. Parineeta was an amazing story of the transition from friendship to love. I have to admit though that I love the Sound of Music and the Sister Act plus Disney Classics so my love for Bollywood is no surprise. But it's definitely not for everyone.

Pahahaha Noozie that's EXACTLY what happened when we went to watch 'My name is Khan' with the whole family! (15 of us including children). It's by Karan Johar so we thought it would be a good family film. But boyyyy when SRK goes to Kajol 'Mandira let's have sex' I just about died as I was sat in between my mum and uncle :(.Awkward.

This comment MADE MY DAY!

I'm stoked for this to come out. They are so well matched and such natural comedic actors.

That part in the trailer when LMK is like 'ottoke' over and over and over again makes me happy. When a guy that good looking can get down and goofy, he has won my heart. (Please refer to Rain...and CSW. Hmmmm)

I mean, who rips out other people's clothes when they are drunk? And the best part was when LMK says "It's fine, I came with another shirt." LMAO

It's like he's used to it. Made me wonder about the nature of their clothes-ripping relationship. Rawr??

I am actually really looking forward to this. Not a big fan of horror anything, the two leads are too cute to miss out! And considering the possible comedy undertones, it might not be so bad. Besides it's Lee Minki and Son Yejin in a movie! I'd be stupid to skip this one.

LOL - Raine, I am starting to 'hear' more words in full sentences and can easily pick out verbs, etc although I might not understand them. Interesting thing - I learned Russian in an immersion program at the Defense Language Institute, and it was MONTHS before I heard a Russian word and didn't have to translate it into English in my head, however quickly/almost instantaneously that happens. It's starting to happen already, with at least a few words. Ok. I hear cha and need context to know if they mean car or tea, but still.

On a different note, SDLGTS has destroyed me. I can't watch anything but comedy or crime or horror for a while. Too fragile.
