I might be jinxing the Hong Sisters by admitting that I’m pre-loving The Master’s Sun already on stills and previews alone, but I doubt my little fingers-crossed affection will really be the critical element as to whether this drama will suck or rock. Frankly I expect all their dramas to start off rocking and end up sucking, but even then I’m cool with that because I’ve had so much fun in the first half. The high problem with their original and sometimes far-out ideas is how hard it is to wrap it up in a way that makes sense and is satisfying. The latest stills from TMS come courtesy of a color coordinated photo shoot with the two leads So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin. I saw the BTS video of this photo shoot and both seemed to be having a blast posing together. What I wasn’t expecting was how good they look together. So Ji Sub is channeling a bit of the look Cha Seung Won had in Best Love, with similar haircuts and both have the same tall male model lithe frame. I liked but didn’t love Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Seung Won together in BL, here I already feel so much more chemistry between her and So Ji Sub. The three color photo shoot was intended to capture the three phases of birth, life, and death. White represents birth, with purity and innocence, red is life, blood and passionate, and black is death, darkness and silence. It’s funny that Gong Hyo Jin is smiling in all three pictures, but So Ji Sub goes from very awkward in the white picture to enduring in the red picture and finally in the black picture he’s nuzzling Gong Hyo Jin. Well done in providing a narrative already. An additional set of pictures was released even earlier showing Gong Hyo Jin and second male lead Seo In Guk doing laundry on a roof. Apparently his character moves into the same building as her and he encounters her for the first time on the roof. I wonder if she sleeps there during the day to get away from the spirits lurking in the building. The Hong Sisters usually create very compelling second male leads, my personal faves being Lee Jun Ki in My Girl, Jang Geun Seok in Hong Gil Dong, and Yoon Kye Sang in Best Love. But here I’ve already pre-boarded the sizzling OTP ship with the greedy department store president who can keep ghosts away from a poor beleaguered sleep deprived assistant.
