It’s here! The teaser poster for My Sassy Girl
This poster is one year in the making, literally. Happily, it doesn’t disappoint because I love it! My Sassy Girl, starring Joo-won (Yong-pal) and Oh Yeon-seo (Come Back, Ajusshi) is a lovey-dovey remake of the 2001 rom-com movie that starred Cha Tae-hyun and Jeon Ji-hyun. A big change in this story is that it is set in Joseon and will have a bit of strife within the royal court thrown into the mix.
In the center of the drama is Joo-won, who plays the role of Gyun-woo, the most eligible nobleman in the Joseon Dynasty. Not only is he the most attractive man in Joseon, he is also teacher to the crown prince. Oh Yeon-seo plays quirky, lively, and of course sassy Princess Hye-myung who is the headache of the royal palace. Additional characters include Lee Jung-shin (Cinderella and the Four Knights) who plays Kang Jun-young, a charismatic general in the Inspection Department and Kim Yoon-hye (Vampire Detective) who plays Jung Da-yeon, a woman who loves Joo-won.
Besides being amazingly gorgeous, the poster features a cute little pun, introducing our two leads as seon-nam seon-nyeo, for a good looking young couple, but written as “some-man” and “some-woman” instead to highlight their romancey “some” kind of relationship.
The complete writing in the box reads: “Some-man and some-woman who will change the romance game in Hanyang are here!” On the top of Joo-won’s hat it reads: “Gyun-woo, the man with the best specs in Joseon!” and above Oh Yeon-seo it reads: “A bright, sassy woman who is the headache of the royal palace!”
My Sassy Girl is 100-percent pre-produced, with the hopes of airing simultaneously in China and Japan. Unfortunately, the actors got pulled into some pre-production strife between the network and the production while casting for the leading role, but I’m going to try and tune that out. All the pre-production mess aside, there is already a lot of interest in this show, because it’s Joo-won’s last drama before army enlistment. Hopefully it will be a good one for him. Joo-won fighting!
SBS’s My Sassy Girl will broadcast Mondays and Tuesdays in May following Whisper.
