Korean stars Sung Joon and Han Ye Seul give off the same aura and vibes for me, both ridiculously pretty in an angular lithe style. They wouldn’t be what I deem cute, except when I see them together for their upcoming jTBC drama Madame Antoine I find them unexpectedly cute because of their chemistry and interactions. Han Ye Seul seems to turn Sung Joon into a sexy boy-next-door type, while he softens her tendency to be sharp and shrill into something more mysterious with a subtle warmth. The drama premieres towards the end of January on the 22nd, and also stars Jinwoon of 2AM, Lee Joo Hyung, and Hwang Seung Eon, not exactly the most promising or inspiring of acting confidence supporting leads, but Han Ye Seul and Sung Joon’s early glimpses at chemistry and the promise of being perfectly cast opposite each other leaves me comfortably optimistic. Check out their super sweet greeting to viewers, ending with Sung Joon cracking up in a “I can’t believe I’m doing this” way.
