Hwang Jung-eum leaps to the past in Men Are Men teaser

Rom-com Men Are Men has dropped a second teaser featuring its leads, Hwang Jung-eum (Mystic Pop-up Bar), Yoon Hyun-min (My Holo Love), and Seo Ji-hoon (Welcome).

Hwang Jung-eum plays the heroine, a strong female lead who wants to live an independent life, free from marriage. But a love triangle and complications ensue when two men declare their interest in her. Potential love interest number one: Yoon Hyun-min, the CEO of a pharmaceutical company. Potential love interest number two: Seo Ji-hoon, a younger man who is a rising star webtoon artist.

In the teaser, they all individually walk toward a photobooth, and Seo Ji-hoon narrates the text that appears on the screen: “Four cuts of their past lives.” When Hwang Jung-eum enters the booth, she poses with a bridal prop stick that says, “I will marry myself.” Yoon Hyun-min makes a serious expression while posing with a sunglasses-crown, perhaps alluding to his shy but authoritative side. Exuding a happy-go-lucky energy, Seo Ji-hoon shows off his inner child and poses with a baby shark hat and confetti.

When the photos drop, we see four different cuts of the characters from different time periods. Interestingly, the first three of four photos for Yoon Hyun-min and Seo Ji-hoon show just the backs of their heads, while all of Hwang Jung-eum’s photos show her looking at the camera head-on.

With Hwang Jung-eum narrating, we go back in time and see her in the Joseon era and other significant time periods in Korean history. Throughout, we see a male companion whose face is unseen, and she narrates: “A couple’s bond is precious like a flower that blooms once in a thousand years.” When she returns to the present, she asks: “Is that guy the guy?” She ends the teaser with, “A singledom defender’s romance spanning three lifetimes, Men Are Men.

Multiple-male love interests seem to be this summer’s drama trend, with Jang Nara’s Oh My Baby finishing up, and Song Ji-hyo’s Did We Love and Hwang Jung-eum’s Men Are Men premiering in the same week. I’ve been enjoying Hwang Jung-eum’s characteristic zaniness in her current drama Mystic Pop-up Bar, so I hope she carries through her comic timing and easy chemistry in this next one.

KBS Monday-Tuesday miniseries Men Are Men, directed by Choi Yoon-seok and written by Lee Eun-young, will begin airing on July 6.

On a superficial note, I really like her long hair in Mystic Pop-up Bar and am sad she chopped it off again!

MPUB is by far my favorite role of hers so far and I am afraid this one will be a disappointment in comparison, but I'm still looking forward to checking it out!

I think she might be wearing a wig or some extensions in Mystic Popup Bar. For some reason, the hair seems a bit off (or stiff, for lack of a better descriptor).

A love triangle and 3 timelines? Could be complicated.
I miss seeing the Joseon era so this part sounds intriguing.

Her make up is too bold. It made her look mature. Or is it because she looked a little bit stressed, thus made her look a little mature. She used to be so young in Listen to my heart. Oh well that was almost 10 years ago.

Hwang Jung-eum is 35, younger than Jang Nara, Yoo In-na and Gong Hyo-jin, a year older than Park min-young. Its interesting how Korean actresses seem to hit their stride at this age while many male actors start to flounder at 28 (around the time they're facing mandatory military service).

I'm so jaded with the different worlds and timelines. Some people do great with directing and some miss the mark entirely.

I like her makeup here way better...I hate how they sort of put a yellow foundation that is so obvious on her in Mystic Pop Up Bar...you could tell her neck is different shade then her face and there are two layers
