This Wednesday is the premiere of new SBS Wed-Thurs drama Yongpal (Yongpalyi), taking over for the ratings leader Mask and giving audiences a different type of dish to sink their teeth into. Instead of inheritance and identity hijinks, Yongpal goes for inheritance and medical hijinks, with a side of fast-paced action. I like the cast of Kim Tae Hee, Jo Hyun Jae, Chae Jung Ahn, and Jung Woong In, and leaving the male lead Joo Won for last is simply to state that I’m warming up to him thanks to him giving me a fun vibe all the previews.
The cast attended the press conference last week, with plenty of pretty but nothing terribly interesting as evidenced by the pictures below. Well, other than Chae Jung Ahn’s red outfit that rather defies description other than perhaps being a toga jumpsuit? Kim Tae Hee still looks fantastic next to her Nine-tailed Fox leading man Jo Hyun Jae, even if he’s her brother in this drama and trying to kill her. She also looks great with Joo Won, which doesn’t surprise me since she tends to match up well visually with almost any male lead, and he’s also got a good noona streak going ever since surprising fans opposite Eugene in Baker King, Kim Tae Goo. Check out all the latest goodies below to decide if this drama might be up your alley.
Previews for Yongpal:
it’s tonight! i dont have much expectation, but KTH is my first bias ever, so despite whatever shortcomings later on, i wud definitely follow this drama till the end..fighting Yongpal!
I wasn’t aware up until you posted about Yongpal that you’re not a fan of Joo Won. I apparently don’t read this blog well enough. xD
How come you don’t like him? 🙂
I just can’t imagine JHJ has a villain role, but my gosh..he looks so smexy there with his evil laugh.
Super excited for this drama!!!
KTH has a big ass forehead
You should see mine 🙁
JHJ is so so so damn hot – handsome here ??
I didn’t like Jo Won in Baker King (maybe because he is a good actor?) but he completely won me over in Gaksital.
omg! i’m happy to hear you warming up to Joo Won, hopefully it will be a streak too, just like what happened to Jong Suk. and gosh Joo Won looks so good and have a great looking pair here.
I don’t know if I will watch this drama. As a new college student, it is getting harder and harder to find the time to feed my drama addiction. Just wanted to drop by and say that Kim tae hee is gorgeous and joo won is looking mighty good.
Drama is action packed. Joo Won looks great here. The one thing I really dislike about Kdramas is the face smacking. That drives me crazy.
What a good trailer! It got me excited and asking questions that I need the answers to, answers that I can only get from watching the show.
