I am positive enamored of sexy in my dramas and movies. But real sexy is real hard to do right, especially nowadays with scantily clad or sexually suggestive tries to masquerade as sexy when the real deal is all about restraint and innuendo. Two upcoming dramas seems to have captured the perfect spirit of sexy, and in a nice twist delivers the aura and mood from very different eras. Cable drama My Love Eun Dong airing on jTBC went old school and mined In The Mood for Love for poster shoots featuring leads Joo Jin Mo and Kim Sarang. To say I love it is an understatement, these two radiate mature sex appeal without even needing to show any skin or tongue.
Over at SBS, poster shoots are also underway for upcoming Mon-Tues drama High Society (former drama titles include Chaebol’s Daughter or True Romance), which went through casting cycles until landing leads UEE and Sung Joon. The concept is sexy modern high society Romeo & Juliet, with the two leads sporting black tie attire while going from balcony distance to kissing proximity. UEE’s dress is insanely va-va-va-voom while Sung Joon wears that classic tux like form fitting second skin. The chemistry of both sets of OTPs are off the charts and suddenly my interest in both dramas zoomed way up so kudos to the productions for sexy done right.
