Promo photos for Personal Taste

Promo pics are out for Personal Taste! I’ll freely admit that this is the upcoming drama that has grabbed my interest the most, partly due to its giggly-funny premise, partly due to its fab lead actors, and partly because I’m currently reading the novel. (Never fear, when I’m done I’ll write up a general review. I’m about halfway through now, and I’ll say that as a literary work it’s probably (at best) at the level of a breezy internet novel — but as fodder for kdrama fare, there’s some primo comedy stuff in there.)

These stills were taken at the MBC drama’s first poster shoots on February 18 at a studio at the MBC Dream Center. The drama premieres March 31.

I am pretty sure the drama is going to depart in a few key ways from the novel, but the basic gist is the same. In the novel, the hero (Lee Min-ho) is older than the heroine (Sohn Ye-jin), but it remains to be seen whether the drama will tailor their ages to reflect the actors’ real ages more closely. (Lee Min-ho is 22, while Sohn Ye-jin recently turned 28.) Sohn plays a woman, Kae-in, who meets Jin-ho just when she’s suffered at the hands of two douchebags and wistfully thinks that things would be better off with a gay best friend. Thanks to some fortuitous timing, she happens upon Jin-ho at just this time, and through a misunderstanding (which is mostly Jin-ho’s fault), she believes that he’s gay. Taking this as a happy coincidence, she welcomes him as her new roommate, and Jin-ho finds himself tangled up in a misconception of his own making. Shenanigans ensue!
