The just released character posters for upcoming jTBC romance Madame Antoine work for me so much I’m a little surprised since the drama wasn’t on my radar too much initially. Leads Han Ye Seul and Sung Joon theoretically make a solid coupling so the casting works for me, but their presence alone didn’t elevate this drama to much watch status. But a creative team behind the helm definitely adds more sizzle to the proceedings, and I much appreciate a visually creative and captivating design team that whipped out these character posters with an immediate nod to the fortune telling aspect of the story. Han Ye Seul’s character is a fortune teller with the moniker Madame Antoine, who crosses paths with a psychologist played by Sung Joon, so it’s going to be a battle of the mind readers coming from different mediums. The posters are lush and evocative of a fortune tellers den, with the kitschy decor and abundance of patterns.
Madame Antoine is written by the Hong sister who did The King 2 Hearts and Marry Him If You Dare, and directed by the PD of Can We Get Married and Can We Love. It airs in January in the time slot following D-Day.
