Lee Jin-wook, Lee Yeon-hee face Wedding Hell in new promos

With the premiere soon ahead, Kakao TV’s Welcome to Wedding Hell has been steadily putting out new promos featuring the rom-com’s soon-to-be-wedded couple, Lee Jin-wook (Bulgasal: Immortal Souls) and Lee Yeon-hee (SF8).

The two Lees are newly engaged after blissfully dating for two years, but their dreams of a fairy tale happily-ever-after are about to get hit with a cold splash of reality. There’s a lot to celebrate and be excited about, but there’s also the mountainous task of planning the wedding itself, managing finances, and figuring out the wheres and hows of living together going forward.

In the new stills, we get a peek at the (dreaded) meeting of the two families. Lee Yeon-hee’s doting parents sit on one side, played by Kim Mi-kyung (Forecasting Love and Weather) and Im Ha-ryong (365: Repeat the Year). On the other, we have Lee Jin-wook’s proud parents, Yoon Yoo-sun (Tomorrow) and Gil Yong-woo (Fatal Promise).

The story will also have a second lead romance with Lee Jin-wook’s bestie Song Jin-woo (Jirisan) and Lee Yeon-hee’s work sunbae Hwang Seung-un (You Are My Spring).

Written by Choi Yi-rang (My Country Calls, Tamra the Island) and co-directed by PD Song Je-young (The Great Shaman Ga Doo-shim) and PD Seo Joo-wan (Damn Good Company), Welcome to Wedding Hell premieres May 23 and will be releasing internationally on Netflix.

A Wardrobe change for Kim Mi-Kyung! I'd like to see this chaebol-ish look on her.

This is game.

You've hit upon one of my pet peeves with the way shows use this wonderful actress. Okay, she's typecast for life as a Mom, but why does that mean they always dress her (and usually make her up) so frumpily!
Of course, then that gets me started on a rant about the way kdramas treat older actresses. Thanks to a number of glamorous actresses entering their 50s, Hollywood has shifted its culture (somewhat). Jennifer Lopez at age 52 actually starred in a rom-com. The (truly spectacularly beautiful) Salma Hayek was a super-hero.
Am I mad because my wife and I are 4 years older than Kim Mi-Kyung and are hoping to star as romantic leads in the U.S. sequel to Love All Play as up and coming pickleball stars? Well, maybe. But still my wife is always really envious of how young Korean women in their 50s and 60s look, and yet we don't see a lot of evidence of kdrama producers taking advantage of this genetic/cultural trait!

Kim Mi-kyung (and Yoon Yoo-sun too!) really is a wonderful actress. These are a bit older, but I loved her chaebol look in Master's Sun as well as her hacker get-up in Healer.

Yup, I really enjoy KMK’s take as a chaebol bitch in Master’s Sun. They dressed her very well there with super-refined make up and styling.

I'll be watching your remake of Love All Play with you and your wife star in it. Which sport both of you want to play?

Pickleball is a racquet sport that is played on a lot smaller court than tennis. Because it involves less movement than tennis, its become popular among the elderly in the U.S. Although its really fun to play, its incredibly boring to watch. To make a romantic film about it would be like making a coming of age movie about fencing. No one would ever watch it!

But we did watch 2521 which was sort of a coming of age / rom com mashup about a fencing star 😆

@parkchuna You're right. I had forgotten that one when it moved to streaming on a New York city television station. Of course, at the time, I had just fathered a daughter with an unknown woman, and the daughter quickly matured to age 13, so I had my hands full!

Angelina Jolie casted in Eternals in a warrior capacity was a real time surprise to me. A friend pointed it out to me yet even after seeing the casting credits I had to go verify if she was actually the one due to stereotyped age casting.

I thought the same, glad to see her as a rich lady!

Not a fan of either of the leads, but I do like that Kakao TV has tried some different things with its rom-coms. Since it is on Netflix I will probably give it a try.
