I am officially slavering like a dog over a new bacon flavored bone for the upcoming jTBC cable drama Padam Padam: The Sound of His and Her Heartbeat. Forget my Jung Woo Sung being the lead, or cute with newfounded cheekbones Kim Bum playing an angel of sorts, or even suddenly full of attitude and strangely alluring Han Ji Min – I want this sucker because the story looks fascinating. Wow, it’s been so long since good writing and a genuinely creative script hooked me.
No wonder folks bemoan the death of drama writing, since we are fed pap most of the time that we accept because it’s got good looking people in it. Nothing wrong with that, but I do feel my brain is much happier when I watch smartly written things. Noh Hee Kyung has gone outside even her own box and Padam Padam feels electrifying and riveting. Is Yang Kang Chil dead? Alive? Has his own guardian angel? And a new love who loves dogs? What the hell is going on? I don’t know, but I’m dying to find out.
Long trailer for Padam Padam:
This is a damn fine five-minute trailer. This drama looks beyond gorgeously filmed, and trailer is edited just marvelously. I’m loving all the characters and actors thus far, and find that the chemistry is already there even from the little we see. Also, can I just say a “wow” for this drama showing a prison bathroom scene with naked Jung Woo Sung and Kim Bum. OMO. Get my mind out of the gutter!
