I’m going to ask for a boon for not being more excited about the upcoming SBS drama Pinoccho. I have three(!) more episodes of My Lovely Girl to get through this week before Pinocchio arrives, and that’s like telling a kid to eat five plates of brussel sprouts before dessert arrives. Pinocchio also hasn’t been all that steady and reliable in dropping promotional material but as long as the stuff that is provided looks good then all can be forgiven. Case in point, I really love the new stills featuring Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Seok in the high school versions of their characters.
The still above of Park Shin Hye is especially lovely, capturing her natural girl-next-door appeal perfectly with a dash of energy and confidence in her eyes. One reason she failed for me in Heirs was constantly looking she was in a horror movie and her body language was braced for something to jump out at her and yell “boo!”. Lee Jong Seok’s wild child wig is starting to grow on me, not because I think it actually looks good, but because he’s apparently trying to portray himself as a country buffoon and I must say the wig is doing the job nicely. The two are them also look so cute together, squeeee~
There are also new drama stills featuring two of the supporting characters played by the always fantastic Jin Kyung (last seen in It’s Okay, It’s Love) and the can-play-good-or-play-baddie with ease Lee Pil Mo.
