Those in Korea the mood for a cheery energetic rom-com will have a choice in Love Forecast (Today’s Love) premiering next week on January 15th. It’ll be a nice way to warm up the cold weather for couples heading to the theater, I’m already getting cute and sweet vibes from the previews and posters. Leads Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won have been earnestly hitting up all the promotional circuits to tout their movie, and their couples spread in Cine21 Magazine is especially a feast for the eyes.
I love the red background color, adding a burst of strong color to offset the couple’s beaming smiles in alternate pics. I definitely buy their chemistry as good friends in that portion of the movie story, but it’s wait-and-see whether they will convincingly sell the transition to eventual romantic lovers. The production recently released a spoilery still of the two kissing, a juicy treat no doubt but not enough visual sizzle in that shot alone. I demand lots more where that came from for my “research” purposes.
