It’s Monday so right on cue KBS released more Tomorrow’s Cantabile goodies. There are now a total of three official drama posters that all share the same beige color scheme along with plenty of instruments to highlight the music theme. The first drama poster was a very romantic skewing one where Joo Won stares at his smiling leading lady played by Shim Eun Kyung. Maybe at some point in the story that expression will feel well-earned but it’ll take a long time before the kooky 4D pianist worms her way into the tightly wound music genius’ heart. The other two posters are a bit more fun with another OTP set but this time the two leads are making awkward faced while the third poster showcases the full cast including Go Kyung Pyo, Baek Yoon Shik, Dohee, Jang Se Hyun, Jung Sung Ah, Kim Yu Mi, and Park Bo Gum among others.
The third poster is a bit too busy and renders every character teeny tiny almost like a musical Where’s Waldo parade to try and spot an instrument to locate a character. I guess it can’t be helped when there are so many characters in this particular story. I do wish Joo Won was not wearing a black and white vertical striped tux jacket with tails in the group poster which makes him look like a carnival barker. The TC posters also remind me a bit of the posters from It’s Okay, It’s Love with the same color scheme and happy vibe. I’m just relieved there are no dull posters with morose characters photoshopped into a grey backdrop. The production also released the second video teaser and it’s way better than the first concept one. This one has actual over-the-top wacky scenes straight out of the Nodame Cantabile manga story, with both Joo Won and Shim Eum Kyung going for full physical humor along with very animated expressiveness. It might not work for everyone but for a manga enthusiast like me this stuff is an enjoyable walk in the park.
