Lee Da-hee and Choi Siwon fail to prove that Love is for Suckers
Another round of promos has been released for ENA’s Love is for Suckers, including new character posters and a video teaser of our bickering OTP.
In a classic rom-com set-up, our heroine Gu Yeo-reum – played by Lee Da-hee (L.U.C.A.: The Beginning) – is long-time friends and neighbors with Choi Siwon’s (Work Later, Drink Now) Park Jae-hoon. But their almost too comfortable friendship is about to be shaken, of course, when Jae-hoon agrees to appear on Yeo-reum’s dating reality show and cue the denial of ~feelings~.
The new video teaser begins with Jae-hoon interviewing that he’s been friends with Yeo-reum since high school. She calls and sends a text, cutely asking Jae-hoon to bring chicken feet take-out for dinner, and he messages back: “You can use your finger to order delivery.” We then cut to Yeo-reum’s interview, where she calls Jae-hoon her faithful neighborhood friend.
Updating Jae-hoon on her dating life, Yeo-reum claims that she changed her approach and is going for a sexy vibe. He scoffs that she’s far from sexy, but is taken aback when he catches sight of Yeo-reum with another man. Disapprovingly, he wonders why she’s letting a man into her home at 1 AM and randomly tries to distract himself by dancing to loud hiphop. Enter Yeo-reum who calls him crazy for putting on a show in the middle of the night.
As we return to Jae-hoon’s interview, he explains that Yeo-reum is a variety show PD and worries that her show isn’t doing well. Poor Yeo-reum is trying her best, but continues to disappoint her boss with low ratings. In her interview, Yeo-reum explains that Jae-hoon looks like he’s unemployed, but is actually a doctor – which always impresses people. In the intermittent text screens, we read: “Our once safe relationship is starting to shake!”
The video then jumps to Noh Susanna (Men Are Men) telling Min Jin-woong (Secret Royal Inspector and Joy) that Jae-hoon is appearing on Yeo-reum’s show. Yeo-reum gives the excuse that she was pressed for time and didn’t have a choice, while Jae-hoon garbles his response. We watch as our hero transforms from scruffy to dandy, surprising everyone when he arrives on set. The teaser then closes on Yeo-reum’s conflicted expression when a contestant asks Jae-hoon about his ideal partner.
With writing by Kim Sol-ji (Pegasus Market) and PD Choi Kyu-shik (Hush) at the helm, ENA’s Love is for Suckers premieres next week on October 5.
