MBC’s upcoming Mon-Tues drama The Duo held its press conference yesterday, exactly one week before its premiere next Monday. The fusion sageuk will follow the just finished Queen of Reversals, and stars Chun Jung Myung, Han Ji Hye, Lee Sang Yoon, and Seo Hyun Jin. It tells the story of two men who were switched at birth, and the poor boy grows up the son of a rich man, and the rich boy grows up the son of a beggar.
I know I have Geuns on the brain, but I really couldn’t help it when I saw the press conference pictures with PIE and Han Ji Hye, and the first thought I had was “my god, they look so awkward and uncomfortable together.”
Compared to PIE’s comfort with his second leading lady Seo Hyun Jin, his vibe with Han Ji Hye does not bode well for onscreen chemistry. However, it’s just a press conference, and I remain totally really to squee my mind out when I see PIE say his first line of sageuk dialogue. Hopefully it’s something like “do I look hot wearing all black and carrying a big sword?” Yes, PIE, you do.
