Looks like Pinocchio is going to milk the teenage sequence sweetness until the audience either gets a toothache or bow to the drama’s successful presentation of yet another popular K-drama trope. The latest stills show leads Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Seok doing the tried-and-true piggyback ride, this time beautifully lit with the setting sun over country fields beside them. I have no problem with the piggybacking trope, it’s always the context within the story that matters. When done right it never fails to elicit the “awwwwww” reaction from me.
I am wondering why Lee Jong Seok is the one doing the piggybacking since he appears to be injured what with the white gauze wrapped around him head. And Park Shin Hye’s character doesn’t seem to be either drunk or unable to walk with a twisted ankle, the two most oft-used reasons for the piggybacking. It would be awesome if it was a piggyback for no reason, like he just wants to carry her and she’s shyly agreeing to it. Can these two not have a hate-love relationship as teens and just make it like-love?
On the other hand, who out there is clamoring for more silly Lee Jong Seok pics from this drama? I’m seriously perplexed by the drama keeps on releasing derpy Lee Jong Seok stills to promote Pinocchio. I know based on the official character still that he gets a hair cut after he grows up and becomes a news reporters, plus a snazzy wardrobe to boot, why can’t we see more of the post-period when he’s a hottie rather than getting thwacked over the head with unending streams of the country bumpkin. Who’s with me here? We Demand Hot Lee Jong Seok NOW.
