Son Ye Jin and Jung Hae In Enjoy a Coffee Date in First Still from Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food

I’m going to have words with the production team member who chose to release as the first still for upcoming jTBC romance drama Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food a picture where half of male lead Jung Hae In‘s face is obscured by his coffee cup. This is not a coffee CF, and definitely detracts from setting the whole tone. The idea is that Son Ye Jin as a successful coffee company mid-level manager has a good enough life but not quite there yet in terms of emotional satisfaction.

She encounters the younger brother of her best friend after years apart when he was studying abroad and lo and behold he’s back smexier than before and can be a romantic possibility rather than just younger brother material. The set up is straight out of K-drama romance idea workshop 101 but what sets it apart for me is PD Ahn Pan Seok picking this as his first drama since the darkly comedic Heard it Through the Grapevine, and in general he picks serious and dark dramas so there must be more here than just fluff. Happy for us Son Ye Jin and Jung Hae In are both great choices to deliver substance on top of beautifully paired visuals. Continue reading
