Just because I like an actor and actress individually never guarantees they would make a stellar onscreen coupling. Even if they do generate chemistry onscreen, it can be wasted in a terrible story and lead to even more teeth gnashing for me than if they just failed to ignite on contact. That’s why I always remember to say a word for thanks for Someone Like You, putting Kingone Wang and Kristen Jen together in a story that is actually watchable and pretty darn cute to boot. It’s the first Sunday night SETTV drama I’ve liked since King Flower, and narratively way more sane than KF.
The SLY leads are on the cover and pages of this month’s S-pop magazine, which I posted about two weeks ago but now the remainder of the stills have been released and are too pretty not to share. I love the colorful patterned threads both are modeling, eye-catching without tipping into gauche. I’m fairly certain SLY will have a happy ending for the leads, and along the way the generous production will keep doling out the skinship goodies even if a few roadblock annoyances pop up here and there. It’s nothing that more kissing can’t drown out.
