One of these things is not like the others. LOL, I love how children’s show teaching tools comes in handy when checking out drama stills and trying to describe succinctly what is going on. One guess which of the four leads hasn’t quite gotten into character yet. The production of Marry Him If You Dare (Mirae’s Choice) is revving up its promotional materials and today comes the triple whammy – official cheeky character stills, the first adorable video teaser, and a long BTS look at the cast at the poster filming. Who says good things don’t come in threes? Thank you, KBS! The official stills are nothing to write home about, except leads Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Dong Gun once again show us how genuine actors can sell an expression and make it come alive and create an impression of the character to come. Han Chae Ah was clearly told to smile and look attractive but she also feels engaged with the camera, whereas we see Jung Yong Hwa smiling beatifically like a statue and I just want to snap my fingers in his face and tell him to wake up. Oh well, if I see that cute snaggletooth often in this drama I’ll cut him some slack.
The video teaser is so so SOOOOO cute. I was smiling non-stop and loving the fresh and creative approach to introducing the time-travel conceit and the fact the heroine is going to be torn between two very different men because of her own future self’s meddling. The teaser hints that the drama may have a very lighthearted tone that reminds me of Lie to Me, and I ended up loving that drama warts and all. But LTM didn’t have as solid a production team as the PD here who directed Bad Love and Crime Squad and one of the Hong Sisters is writing from the duo who did The King 2 Hearts. With the same irreverent tone but with a qualitatively better team to execute, I’m letting myself dare to love MHIYD even knowing it could end up sucking. The BTS of the poster shooting shows the cast getting along, though the more outgoing Yoon Eun Hye will need to dig deeper to draw out the notoriously reserved Lee Dong Gun. I don’t even care if they get along in real life, though it looks like they totally do, because they are seasoned enough to sell the romantic connection once the camera starts rolling regardless of real life interactions or lack thereof. Check out the latest batch of goodies and get ready to start twiddling your thumbs until this drama starts.
