(Is it just me, or does it look like Park Shi-hoo’s stylist was trying to make him look like the Fresh Prince of Cheongdam-dong?)
Cheongdam-dong Alice airs tomorrow and I am psyched…even though I have no idea what it’s really about. They’ve thrown press conferences, four teaser trailers and a twenty-minute trailer at us, but someone must not what us to know anything about it. Moon Geun-young is poor and hoping to crawl up the ladder. Park Shi-hoo is jaded and out for vengeance against all women. Somehow they hook up and engagements are involved. Wanting to marry rich is involved. Lots of expensive clothes and glittery accessories flit across the screen.
I guess we’ll start finding out some answers tomorrow.
(She can even act in French. I love Moon Geun-young.)
This is the first cute tidbit I wanted to throw at you is of Moon Geun-young speaking French. Her character, Han Se-kyung, is on an interview. Personally, I only caught about a fifth of what she said. How was her French you native French speakers?
This is one of the poster-making shoots, which I thought was interesting because it shows a little chemistry between our leads. w00t! They still look a bit awkward, like they’re getting to know each other. It’s adorable. But when you’re acting, things often change when you have great actors behind the wheel, so I’m not taking the shyness to mean much.
There was a press conference 11/27/12 where the women seem to really get along. OCKoala pointed out that they’re wearing black and it is a bit bizarre. But Moon Geun-young is so sunny, it really doesn’t matter. I’m just mentioning it so I can put up pretty pictures…
Here we have the 20-minute trailer with no subs. If you want subs, check them out on Viki.
I gathered a few things from this trailer:
- Park Shi-hoo’s character is petty, out for some revenge and he’s going to make me laugh. I’m glad he’s not a broody chaebol.
- Moon Geun-young’s character expectedly gets pushed around. My current theory is that she wants to marry into Cheongdam-dong nobility to get back at those who look down at her, taking a page out of PSH’s book. Who knows? They don’t give me enough to go on!
- I don’t get how they’ll tie this into the whole Alice in Wonderland motif they were going for.
- I still have no idea what this is about.
