Good things come to those who wait, and I’ve been patiently waiting for Nice Guy to premiere therefore the first teaser is indeed as good as I had hoped. This drama looks dark and twisty, and starting off a teaser with Song Joong Ki purposely french kissing a girl is clearly going to catch my attention right off the bat. My only reservation is that this drama reminds me of screenwriter Lee Kyung Hee‘s own A Love to Kill with Rain and Shin Mina, where Rain was out to revenge seduce the leading lady and ends up falling in love with her. It’s not my favorite Lee Kyung Hee drama, but tons of people love it to pieces for how melodramatic and angsty it was. I like that the two leading ladies Moon Chae Won and Park Shi Young are evenly matched, both in terms of their strong female characters and their acting ability. I don’t think any of the three main leads will be one-dimensionally sympathetic, which makes for great entertainment as we parse the shades of grey to glimpse the nice and not-so-nice parts that reside in all of us.
First teaser for Nice Guy:
Eun Gi: I’m intrigued by you.
Jae Hee: I will do anything to reach my goal. Don’t go to Eun Gi please!
Maru: What I did to save you, I won’t destroy you without first getting some satisfaction.
Jae Hee: Did I turn you into this cold heartless man?
