The upcoming K-movie Wonderful Radio (also called Love On Air) has a confirmed February 2012 release date, and with it comes the first trailer for the cute rom-com starring Lee Min Jung and Lee Jung Jin. Watching the trailer, the movie looks like it could be sweet and entertaining, but I’m not quite feeling the hook yet. I saw a few glimpses of the always scene-stealing Kim Jung Tae (Girl K, Miss Ripley) playing some sort of big-wig, which means he’ll likely be a great villain for our intrepid radio DJ and producer to vanquish. I like both leads, but I’ll usually only watch their projects if it intrigues me. I’ll wait and see the second trailer for WR to decide if this movie has the potential to hook me in. Plotwise it appears to be the standard underdog success story mixed with plenty of emotional maturation all around from the characters. If done right, these kind of feel good movies will always have an audience.
