Jang Geun Seok and Kim Ha Neul’s upcoming rom-com You’re My Pet is premiering in Korean in a few weeks, but I feel like the movie has been filming forever and the stars have been promoting it for equally as long. I was never interested in the manga premise, and add to that a consistent diet of YMP news, it all started to give me fatigue. The slightly risqué poster turned me off the movie even more.
I associate having a pet with comfort and chaste cuddling, not sexy times and wink-wink raunch. But these latest stills from the movie are really up my alley, giving off a very low-key emotional connection between the two lead characters. The full preview for the movie has also been released, so have a look below with English subs. I’ve always intended to watch this movie at some point, but now my interested is revived again.
Full Trailer for You Are My Pet (English-subs):
After watching the full trailer, I don’t find the movie as weird as it sounded on paper. It’s also a plus that Jang Geun Seok and Kim Ha Neul appear to have this delightful bubbly chemistry. Kim Ha Neul is coming off just winning the Best Actress prize at the Grand Bell Awards this month (for Blind with Yoo Seung Ho), so hopefully that will give this movie a boost. It’s funny how some actresses follow up an awards win for a serious and dark role with a fluffy and fun brainless movie candy role. I hope this movie does well for the cast and crew involved. I’m just glad it’s over so Jang Geun Seok could finally cut his hair.
