I Need Romance 3 Holds Press Conference and Readies for Premiere Next Monday

Is the third time a charm for the I Need Romance franchise? I sure hope so and we’ll find out when I Need Romance 3 premieres next Monday on tvN. The cast attended a press conference today where I think leading lady Kim So Yeon‘s entire sartorial concept was “Go wow them!”. She showed up in a red off-the-shoulder Herve Leger that was bandaged around her exquisite figure, managing to look stunning without being slutty. The entire look would have been perfect had her hair not been so drably pulled back. Looking at her va-va-voom style, no one is going to wonder how an older woman like her character in the drama can attract the attention of a hot namja in the start of his prime like Sung Joon. I thought the entire cast was nicely decked out with personal style that was entertaining and attractive. Sung Joon can get away with his embroidered lapel suit because it fits his tall frame perfectly and he’s young enough to pull off those cute words. His curly hair is also kinda cute and I dig it. I’m getting from all the previews that this really isn’t a love triangle including Namgong Min who appears to just be the standard second male lead. I could be wrong, but for once in the INR franchise the younger newer guy might just be the lead and get the girl. The supporting cast in addition to the three leads includes Wang Ji Won, Park Hyo Joo, Yoon Seung Ah, and Park Yoo Hwan, with the latter three forming the central friendship circle with Kim So Yeon while Wang Ji Won plays her rival at work and love. This drama comes from the same PD-screenwriter duo that helmed the first two installments in the franchise so expect lots of snazzy visuals and hot making out scenes. Kim So Yeon revealed she already filmed a kiss scene with Sung Joon but not yet a bed scene though if and when it comes she promises to give it her all and make it sizzling. Amen to that! Check out the press conference stills as well as the latest two new trailers for the drama. Continue reading

Going into this year end review, I wasn’t nearly as enthusiastic as I was last year. I can’t pinpoint why, other than perhaps I simply wrote so much I wore myself out. All my drama writing in the 365 days … Continue reading
