Long time CF collaborators and former Dream High co-stars Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy continue with their coupling up for sportswear brand Bean Pole and the latest CF stills and video leave me rather befuddled. I love them together and have enjoyed all their previous Bean Pole collaborations which have been fun and flirty and great location porn as the brand sent these two to far flung picturesque places like New Zealand, Thailand, and the Swiss Alps. Maybe they ran out of money by overspending in the past because this set for filmed against in an indoor set with glaringly dull fake rock outcroppings as the backdrop. Huh? Maybe with Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy being so insanely popular with their most recent dramas (him with You From the Stars, her with Gu Family Book), Bean Pole figured why bother with nice backdrops and just sell the heck out of these two. The video CF, on the other hand, is all sorts of hilarious but in unintentional ways. Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy are rocking windbreakers while acting out some lover’s melodramatic break up and getting back together scene. To say it’s overkill and an understatement, but they still look great together and the CF is filmed in the usual wind blown slo-mo ways which makes it less ridiculous and more self-aware of it’s own overwrought presentation. Both of them also seem strangely stiff in their deliveries but it’s not clear if its intentional or bad acting. Either way, I had a good chuckle and enjoyed this plenty.
