It’s Monday which means I don’t need to recap Marry Him If You Dare anymore. Huzzah! It also means Prime Minister and I is finally here and I’m excited but not terribly pumped up. My gut tells me I’ll enjoy it right off the bat which means better keep the eagerness under wraps for now and unleash it after the drama going gets good down the line. This one is billed as a romance drama but the comedic undertones are very strong indeed. KBS released some new stills this weekend right before the premiere so I thought it nice to share and continue the steady trickle of promotion for this drama. I have a feeling that the majority of the comedy will stem from Yoona‘s character Nam Da Jung, both in how she lurks around to be a paparazzi and how she interacts with those serious folks like Prime Minister Kwon Yul and his staff. She also seems to have a vivid imagination judging from this latest still above where she and Kwon Yul are dressed like Chinese martial artists and having a martial arts match. I find Yoona’s comedic timing in this drama really refreshing, it just makes me smile without rolling my eyes at how absurd it is. And clearly it’s absurd and over-the-top, but the point is that she doesn’t make me feel it and instead I’m able to just laugh at the broad comedy. I also remember in one of the previews she’s having a very ridiculous dream about Kwon Yul kissing her and propositioning her and she just comes across as endearingly spacey. If Yoona turns the corner as a decent actress with onscreen appeal after this drama, I’m going to preemptively lay all the credit on Lee Bum Soo. Sometimes one just gets it after watching a pro in action. I hope these are no shipping wars in this drama, much as I love Yoon Si Yoon (and there are new pics of him below) his character is clearly the second male lead with his own story line. Even if he harbors a crush on Da Jung this drama is about the inexplicable but perhaps all too perfect pairing of a young hardworking tabloid reporter and the serious and smoldering older Prime Minister. Let’s not ruin another drama with fan shipping and just allow the characters to come to life. The team behind this drama is the PD from Baby-faced Beauty and Ad Genius Lee Tae Baek while the writing tandem includes the duo from My Fair Lady, Sweet 18, Snow Queen, When It’s At Night, Summer Scent, and Winter Sonata.
