Y’all, Come and Hug Me (이리와 안아줘) is just so far into melo left field that it is incomparable. It is like MBC heard all the backlash from The Great Seducer and said, “That wasn’t a makjang! We will show you a real makjang!” And they proceeded to create the craziest sounding love story in the history of deadly crazy love stories.
At this point, it really doesn’t even matter what the Are You Human, Too? (너도 인간이니?) posters look like because the wait for it to air, or even pick a steady time slot to air, has been so looooong. I am happy for any movement whatsoever, so it is good to see a slew of posters released this week for this drama.
Are y’all as ready for Lawless Lawyer as I am? Because I am ready for my weekends to be alive with drama magic again. Lawless Lawyer might just be that drama to bring a magical spark back to my action drama palate, so I am greatly anticipating the premiere on May 12th.
Come and Hug Me is about to premier next week. It is hard to believe that we are almost in the middle of May, didn’t May just start like last week? We have a lot of script reading photos and scene photos to post from set. That is basically the only reason for this post, because it is packed with images. (Also, the images double post when you click on them for some reason. I need to figure out what is going on with that.)
The Come and Hug Me broken picture frame poster is complete and it is about as melo as you can get. Y’all, this show looks so beautifully depressing, which is good because I might tune out the storyline and just enjoy the cinematography. That is, if the cinematography holds up to the photos.
Miss Hammurabi (미스 함무라비) is a law drama that is not about big law cases, it is about tiny law things that can happen to everyone, so more Judge Judy style instead of Law and Order. The writer, Moon Yoo-suk, is a judge that went to Harvard Law School. He wrote the novel Miss Hammurabi and converted it to a drama using the same characters and I’m assuming the same situations. So at least we know that the law aspect of this drama will be on point.
It’s about time for the light romantic comedies without any hints of death or disaster to come around! I miss my rom-coms y’all. Give me all of the awkward feels with none of the real world drama. Thankfully we have several to look forward to with Wok of Love premiering first, the other two are The Undateables and Why Secretary Kim, I love it! It feels like a delightful romantic breeze dancing into this hot melo landscape we are in right now.
I’ll tell you what, Lawless Lawyer is not lacking in their promotional material, that is for sure. They are really ramping up with the première only a week away. Hey, I’m not complaining. Below are several more behind the scenes photos of the poster shoot as well as some still images from set. I love the chemistry of the two leads so I am really looking forward to this première.
Somehow, Life on Mars looks like light-fun, and amazing ridiculousness all rolled into a serial killer case with time traveling. But the serial killer doesn’t travel through time, the cop does and we don’t actually know why he travels through time, we just know that he does.
Sketch is really ramping up their promotional materials. We had nothing but anticipation to guide us for so long and now we have a teaser and several character posters to dissect. Finally!
