Have the Hong sisters lost their mojo? While I personally loved Big for admittedly very subjective reasons unrelated to its quality (or lack thereof), the sisters don’t seem to have that buzziness about them. While You’re Beautiful was their biggest splash in years in terms of net buzz, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho did reasonably well and was quite popular and Best Love got pretty good ratings and some critical acclaim. So did Big kill their momentum entirely, because there seems like decided lack of excitement over their upcoming horror romance The Master’s Sun. Or is it that leads Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub don’t command quite the fan base like some younger K-actors or actresses that have all the affection but very little substance and experience to show for it. I for one am looking forward to two mature seasoned actors having a go at something different in terms of story and pairing. I really love the just released individual posters featuring the two leads as themselves and an alternate visage in the mirror. This is definitely not your grandma’s usual “stand straight and strike a pose looking happy/sad/constipated/confused” against a solid color backdrop. I was a little overwhelmed with Gong Hyo Jin’s fresco painted dress in the earlier group poster but it really is visually striking here in her solo shot. I like that the two Tae Gong Shil’s immediately evoke different personas – the living Gong Shil is contemplative while the mirror Gong Shil seems sneaky. It’s moments like this when I truly appreciate having leads who are experienced actors, Gong Hyo Jin’s subtle facial shifts make all the difference in conveying a different perception. Similarly So Ji Sub’s solo shot, while it does overwhelm the senses with his beyond-red suit, but I suppose that’s part of what makes these posters really stand out in the mind’s eye. His portrayal of the two Joo Joong Won’s doesn’t have quite the distinctive separation that Gong Hyo Jin brought to hers, but it still evokes a sense of melancholy and a bit of the campy horror vibe that appears to be the tone for this show. I like how the two mirror versions of the leads are checking out the living versions with this piercing interest, like maybe the mirror selves want to take over the living body. Right now I’m game for whatever far-out concept the Hong sisters have in store, as long as it’s a cohesive package and not just a fun idea that disappears midway and the story lurches to a wholly unsatisfying conclusion. Also check out the first official stills of second female lead Kim Yoo Ri modeling a wedding gown as her character prepares to get married in a lavish wedding at the start of this drama.
