Having a drama I’m looking forward to hold a really visually thumbs up press conference is a double treat indeed. The collective pretty on display at the press conference for upcoming SBS drama The Girl Who Sees Smells is the tasty appetizer to whet my hankering for the main course. The production trotted out lead Yoochun, Shin Se Kyung, Yoon Jin Seo, Namgong Min for a meet and greet, with the four clearly making an effort to coordinate their attire. The memo was black/blue and white and the result was lots of eye candy.
This is probably the most I’ve ever looked forward to a Yoochun or Shin Se Kyung drama, partly due to looking for a palate cleanser after the disaster that was Hyde, Jekyll, Me, and partly liking this particular story and character set up. Yoochun is a cop who cannot feel any sensation after losing his sister to a serial killer while Shin Se Kyung is a girl who developed the ability to visually see smells after escaping the clutches of the same killer. The dark prologue is bloody indeed, with deaths aplenty, but then the drama switches to rom-com mode once the two leads meet a few years later and hijinks ensue. I’m here for the laughs because lord knows I am sorely in need of some.
