Lucky Romance’s charm-filled (literally) promo posters

Aw, the more I see of Lucky Romance, the more I really, really hope it pulls off the cute, vibrant spirit it’s touting from its promotional materials. It’s difficult to know for sure because the teasers so far have been pretty brief and I can’t really get a feel for what the show itself will deliver, but if you could make a drama good by willing it… well, we’d have a lot fewer broken hearts in dramafanland, I suppose.

My favorite thing about these posters (aside from the bright yellow color, recalling the fortune talismans/charms that our heroine is forever arming herself with) is that the heroine’s (Hwang Jung-eum, She Was Pretty) sassy and bold, and going after Ryu Joon-yeol (Answer Me 1988) with gusto. In the poster up top, the copy by her head reads, “You’re mine!” while Ryu Joon-yeol, kneeling behind her with a grimace on his face and steam coming out of his head, reacts with a shocked “WHAT?”

In the two faux talismans featuring the two leads, the writing on hers repeats, “Fall in love, fall in love, fall in love, fall in love…” His, on the other hand, chants, “Break the superstition, break the superstition, break the superstition…” Sorry buddy, but my money’s on her.

Below, Hwang Jung-eum has Ryu Joon-yeol tied up (rawr) to a spinny wheel, with the copy asking the question, “The tiger blessed by the gods — could he become my love?” There’s a stuffed tiger perched nearby, to reference Ryu’s character being born in the year of the tiger: The heroine’s bad luck requires, supposedly, a tiger man to ward off, hence her fixation on getting him to fall for her.

And below that, Hwang pouts and tugs on his arm, asking, “My love… is it you?” His face may look like he wishes it weren’t, but WE ALL KNOW BETTER.

Lee Soo-hyuk (Neighborhood Hero) and Lee Chung-ah (Vampire Detective round out the main cast as second leads (and first loves to the main leads, of course).

Premiere week is upon us! Lucky Romance kicks off its run this Wednesday, May 25, in the MBC timeslot following the recently wrapped revenge thriller Goodbye Mr. Black.

forget Ryu Joon-yeol, I want that pink dress! There's something about the short hair+dress+her expression that's very screwball comedy/I Love Lucy-style.

I love how fun the posters look.

I am a bit disturbed that the colour of ryu jun yeol and lee chung ah clothes is so close to the background. However, seeing all the yellow in the drama i am guessing there is a significance over all that yellow?

Just looking at it, and I can guess it's the color of the charms. That's why the prominent colors are pink and yellow, because it's the same color theme as the charms.

I guess they require some degree of camouflage to be peeping on Hwang Jungeum, hence the yellow outfits that barely blend in the yellow background xD

Look at Hwang jung eum's hand. Yellow color papers & pink signatures. It is charm (amulet). It looks like a posters. Yellow colored background square & pink dressed heroine. Just same.

Wohoo!

I’m so looking forward to Lucky romance. I really like the posters. It’s very cute, thoughtful and gives that very springy-feel.

Do you guys think we’ll actually have a scene of Ryu Joon-yeol (rawr) being tied to a roulette wheel? That ‘be hilarious!

I’m kinda expecting that or a shower scene. :3

Also, I’m very glad to see Lee Soo-hyuk on my my screen very soon. I missed him since his vampiratics in Scholar Who Walks The Night

Goodbye Goodbye Mr Black. I can't say I'll miss ya. Waves off bad lame drama off into very far distance of oblivion!

When looking at these unrefined posters one word comes to my mind: kitsch. Unfortunatelly, they are not at all artistic.

IKR, I mean criticize her acting if you want, but I'm sick of people acting like she's some ajumma just cause she's been paired with their fave oppa. She's JUST entered her 30s for christ's sake.

The age of difference of 2 years is not counted. HJE also does no look older than him.

i checked above comment and noone said she's not good to pair with RJY. it's just she hope for suitable role for her looks. probably something like SECRET than this romcom.
why blame RJY fans for something she didnt said ???

the characters of this rom com are the same as their age in real life, why is it not suitable to her?

0

I'm sorry.. but I am not a fan of RJY..nevr know him before and never watch his dramas and the reply series... what i am saying is they should have just cast any younger 20's actress for the female lead...HJE's role in the dramas are all the same excpt for the Secret.....it's rinse and repeat and all over again... i can' feel any chemistry between the male lead and the other rival male lead...she's also too old to act like some kind of candy girl...i hope she will get more mature role next time..

maybe you should tell that to the PDs ,why do they like HJE so much and cast 20 actresses instead.I think no matter what HJE haters will do ,she will be devouring the tv screen more likely, coz her magic doesn't wane yet and these 3big stations are just waiting for their next turn of having an HJE drama.

0

HJE should stick to mature, dramatic roles not romcoms with her co-stars getting younger and younger. What is she trying to prove?

I'm not a HJE 'hater' by the way. By far my fave role of hers was in SECRET. I hope the PDs who find her so irresistible, create the suitable roles that will win her proper recognition.

0

^once again... RJY is only 1-2 years younger than her, that's basically the same age. I'm confused as to how this is "younger and younger"? "what is she trying to prove?" wow. Only her last 2 projects were romcoms anyways... Not trying to pick a fight btw I'd like to see her in another melo too.

0

"Only her last two"?? Considering some actors do just one or two dramas a year, it sucks thay for a 3rd year running, she's only about to do yet *another* samesame role. Not that she can't do as many romcoms as she likes - just picking less candy-girl characters and more mature-looking co-stars will help *me* take her more seriously.

Hwang Jung Eum litterally just turned 31 and Ryu Jun Yeol is 30 he's not some kid just getting out of his teens. He may have played the role of a 20 year old but he is far from it. Also that's seriously ageist saying that she shouldn't be playing certain roles anymore once she hits a certain age. Older male actors can play the silly roles well into their late 40's or pushing it 50s and no one bats an eyelash. Let her play her fun roles. ALSO her character's age is the same as her real life age, I didn't know it was a requirement to be to be a twenty something to play a 30 year old character.

((Yawn)) can't really get on board with this. At the risk of getting my head literally bitten off...the drama has a great premise, lovely presentation BUT with Ms. Overpowering HJE, not sure how this will go. Might sit this one out - some really weird casting. Just my two cents...no apologies but no offence.

I vowed never to marathon completed dramas (to stop sleep deprivation) so I watch them while they are still ongoing. And I have this disease of not dropping any Korean drama so this drama will be my 5th drama every week.
The time I spent on dramas are well, still almost the same if I marathon them. Haha. Oh well, the time I spent with you, loves, are sleep deprived well.

AOHY has raised the bar for romcom. Coming in now against a running champion is going to be tough. We all know what to expect of the too familiar HJE especially in a romcom. They may need a miracle or be real lucky to pull this off.
