Just three weeks out from the premiere of what might be the crackiest drama to come along in a good long while, GTV is ramping up its promotions for Skip Beat, which will take over the time slot soon to be vacated by In Time With You. The network is holding a fan vote for which among four posters will be selected as the official drama poster, and votes will be entered into a drawing for prizes to be held on December 13th (no, the prizes do not include Choi Siwon or Lee Donghae). Like with the first batch of posters, I am in lovelustawe with how gorgeous AND plot-illuminating these posters are.
I’m twitching already because I need this drama like NOW. For the poster above, the description is thus: “The legs are fighting for fame and power, but when the spotlight shines, all the anger and hate suddenly disappear, leaving only extravagant star power. Bu Puo Shan (Sho), Gong Xi (Kyoko), and Dun He Lian (Ren) – they are the most ideal professional entertainer.” Sigh, I’m going to be massively Sho-shipping in this drama it’s not funny. Even if he’s a jackass, he’s Kyoko’s personal jackass.
“Vowing to become the entertainment world’s shiniest star, with 70% hard work and determination, 30% natural talent, Gong Xi goes from Nobody to Somebody. Finally she presses ahead and arrives on life’s grandest red carpet.”
“Behind her right shoulder is the man she hates and has vowed revenge on, the idol stage’s newest star – Bu Puo Shan. To the left is the man who gradually gives her a renewed understanding of human emotions, the acting world’s biggest star – Dun He Lian. Sitting on the side of the streets, how will Gong Xi decide her own life and her own path?”
P.S. I love how she’s sitting closer to Sho but looking towards Ren. So apropos.
“Every girl dreams of turning from a Cinderella into a Princess, praying for a Prince Charming to come and rescue her from her dark world. Having spent twenty-some years as a Cinderella, Dun He Lian and Bu Puo Shan, who will be her Prince Charming? And who will be the Archangel pushing her into the depths of despair?”

Latest trailer for Skip Beat:
This trailer isn’t really new, as it includes only footage from the first trailer released back in June but repackaged with some booming voiceover. This is only worth watching because we hear the opening song from the drama called “Extravagant Solo” (華麗的獨秀) which will be sung by Super Junior-M. Shit, how many hours is in three weeks?
