The first video teaser is out for the upcoming SBS drama My Lovely Girl (My Lovable Girl) and its all sorts of inoffensive and pretty. Nothing that hooks me to watch the teaser more than once but also no glaring worrisome elements anywhere in sight. My only odd comment of the day is that seeing Rain and Krystal together totally reminds me of Tom Cruise with Katie Holmes, except without the creepy Scientology element. The established older top star with a not even in her twenties rising idol actress, there is this glaring experience and power differential that jumps out at me from the screen. Of course it’s because I see them as Rain and Krystal and not yet as their characters in the drama so hopefully when the story gets rolling this visual incongruity will pass. Krystal is really looking lovely with this new hairstyle, the bangs suit her and for once transform her image a bit more than usual. It’ll be nice to get away from seeing her as bratty Lee Bo Na from Heirs. Rain is smexier than ever, being in love and dating Kim Tae Hee does a man good looking at the way he fairly glows with warmth and wholesome manly appeal. If the predominately idol cast can’t cut it, at least we know there is an adorable Golden Retriever around to steal scenes. I hope the dog belongs to Rain’s character, its been too long since a male lead got a furry best friend to hang out with. Overall this is a decent first teaser which is heavy on the romantic mood and light on any plot hints.
