I distinctly remember wishing that the cast attending drama press conferences would wear the simple uniform of well-tailored conservative suits and classy ladylike dresses. That was during a period when each successive drama press conference delivered increasingly amount of WTF eyesore fashion assassination. It’s a little sobering to see the last three drama press conferences this week for Dr. Stranger, A New Leaf, and now You’re All Surrounded actually making my wish come true but due to such sad circumstances as a national mourning period for the recent ferry tragedy. I suppose it wouldn’t look as somber like they were all attending a wake if a smile was cracked here and there. You’re All Surrounded is getting a head start by holding the press conference with a week left to its premiere next Wednesday. It also dropped a hilarious and entertaining long 7-minute preview which all but guarantees I’m watching this drama no matter what.
The cast of Lee Seung Gi, Cha Seung Won, Go Ara, Ahn Jae Hyun, Oh Yoon Ah, Song Ji Roo and Park Jung Min made their obligatory presence at the press conference to discuss their hopes for the drama’s success as well as the great experience thus far of working together. I totally believe the chemistry is rocking on that set because the long preview had bits of delight for everyone – bromance, bickering romance, chases and spills, and a general high energy that makes for a potential fun ride. Seung Gi seems like such a little boy next to hyung Cha Seung Won in the press conference, but from the preview his character gives off a serious hard-ass vibe that I’m loving since it contrasts with how all his previous characters have started off as a man-child that needs growing up. I’m not feeling Go Ara’s character as much yet since she seems the typical plucky in-your-face heroine who tries hard. Overall I love the rookie foursome together the most watching them bumble their way to becoming cops.
