I’m so numb to the K-drama PPL escalating insanity but even I was almost jolted to annoyance upon spotting a cold coffee cup in male lead Suho‘s hands in the official drama poster for MBN cable drama Rich Man, adapted from the J-dorama Rich Man, Poor Woman. When everyone in a drama eats at Subway and/or frequents the same three major coffee chains, it’s hard not to think that PPL spread like a virus can end up on a drama poster, but thankfully the coffee brand is blocked out by the drama tagline. The official poster is cute, showing that female lead Ha Yeon Seo is way more into the male lead, but Suho’s leading back into her slightly and the head turn in her direction shows interest back, which captures the lead romantic dynamics nicely. The drama premieres next Tuesday May 8th and hopefully will put to rest whether it was the right idea to remake a much loved J-dorama original.
Long teasers for Rich Man:
Coffee was in female lead’s hand, ?
Consider me intrigued. It really looks not bad, although I’m not too keen on the leading actors. The Japanese version were so fantastic that it will be very difficult to live up to.
I agree about the ppl. The drama that has the worst amount of it that I have ever seen is Meet Me at 1006. They LIVE at Subway! Hope this drama is as good as the original but I will happily settle for even close as it’s one of my favorites.
The coffee is on female hand:D I think that they really trying so hard to remake It, look at the woman style 😀 but I want to see it, I just love Oguri Shun
