Kim Ro-woon is a swoony noona-killer Sunbae, Don’t Put On That Lipstick teaser
JTBC released a new teaser for its upcoming drama, Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick. Adapted from a popular webtoon, it stars Won Jin-ah (Melting Me Softly) and Kim Ro-woon (Extraordinary You).
Won Jin-ah plays an experienced marketing associate for a makeup brand, and Kim Ro-woon plays a first-year rookie that joins her team. They just so happen to have some history together, and Won’s aversion to dating younger men is tested by his clear romantic interest in her.
The teaser places Won Jin-ah at Kim Ro-woon’s college, recruiting students for her company. Kim Ro-woon hesitates in the hallway in front of the room where she’s holding her recruitment counseling sessions, but eventually decides to leave. He hears the door open, and unable to pass by her expectant face, he enters the room.
They sit across from each other, stealing looks at each other. He starts to leave, but turns around and drops a huge, heart-pounding statement: “Sunbae, date me.” He shyly smiles and looks down, and she begins to smile back. In the last narration, the actors state the drama title and scheduled airing days.
Kyaaah~! I didn’t realize how much of a heartthrob Kim Ro-woon was until this teaser. I’m decidedly less excited about his co-star, Won Jin-ah, but that may be because my only reference point for her is the Drama-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named (*cough*Melting Me Softly*cough*). Hopefully, this will be the drama to change my mind.
Lee Dong-yoon (20th Century Boy and Girl) will direct, with Chae Yoon penning the scripts. JTBC Monday-Tuesday drama Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick will begin airing in January 2021.
