Good drama lordy are these two of the worst sageuk posters I’ve seen in a good long while, almost so bad as to be a parody. Now I just feel sad for A King Loves leads Im Shi Wan, Yoona, and Hong Jong Hyun, with poor Yoona being told to look serious and melancholy but coming across in the posters like a cry for help to get out of this likely disaster. Over on KBS there’s currently airing love triangle sageuk also involving a king, and somehow all the promos for Seven Days Queen have been beautifully presented. The top one looks like a sageuk version of a 90’s Calvin Klein ad, but instead of being shot in a basement with barely clad teens you have overly flowered and arrayed nobility all in a funk. And the other poster with just Yoona and Im Shi Wan doesn’t deliver an iota of potential romance despite the stalwart back hug position, these two look so mismatched I may switch my watch reason less for hoping it’ll be good and more for wanting it to be so bad it’s kinda fun.
