Okay, I totally love the character posters for upcoming sageuk Red Sky (Lovers of the Red Sky or Hong Chun Gi) but probably not for the reason SBS wants me to. I don’t think its any good or visually all that appealing but holy is it great for dissection. It’s like the drama can’t figure put what genre or vibe to go for and assigned each lead their own story concept. Gong Myung as the second male lead is in a flower boy rom-com, Kim Yoo Jung‘s female lead is in sageuk female painter empowerment drama, Ahn Hyo Seob‘s male lead is in a supernatural/fantasy story, and Kwak Si Yang‘s antagonist is in a court politics and throne snatching intense sageuk. I hope the tonal all over the place mood of the posters doesn’t extend to the drama itself because goodness it’s going to be whiplash. On the bright side, we’re T-minus 7 days away from the premiere woo hoo!

The posters are beautiful but I do agree that it’s not cohesive as if different people work on each of them and they couldn’t figure out what the genres are. The actor in his interview said the romance is more melo but the posters and the teasers of the couple makes it seem like a romcom, so I’m personally confused. Nevertheless I’m excited to see what’s in store ❤️

SBS is really not good when it comes to character posters and posters. I remember Do You Like Brahms, the posters were pretty albeit mediocre. And I loved that drama to bits and pieces.
I think the character posters for Hong Chun Gi are pretty but just like the main posters not my favorite drama posters. However it’s the drama that matters.
But I have a feeling all the good creators behind the scenes have retired and we’re now stuck with a new generation who only give us washed out promo material.
Photoshop fail on 3rd picture. The top ofKayla his hat still showing the windows. Lol
And I failed with my post too. Lol stupid auto correct.
True. I love the character posters but it gives different genres.
But anyway, I’m still excited for the drama!
