Ooooh. Well first off, the trailer reminds me terribly of Last Holiday, where because of a terminal illness (diagnosed by the straight-faced Uhm Ki Joon), Kim Sun Ah takes control of her hapless, humdrum life, and gives herself a well-deserved makeover. She is a lowly employee who’s in love with Lee Dong Wook, her big boss, but he doesn’t even know she exists. Of course, when he encounters the beautiful, made-over her, he spends a day with her and (presumably) falls for her. OK in Last Holiday Queen Latifah didn’t exactly get together with Timothy Hutton, but he was her boss, and he didn’t recognize her either.
The picture above shows a face off between Kim Sun Ah and Seo Hyo Rim. Their first encounter isn’t exactly all that cheery, as Seo slaps Kim. The tension was palpable, according to the crew on set, but the two actresses were pros. They even did a couple of NGs over the slap, but Kim Sun Ah allowed Seo Hyo Rim to slap her suddenly to give the scene more realism. Wow. I knew Kim Sun Ah was devoted to her craft!
Despite the tone of the trailer though, I somehow feel a sense of foreboding and melodrama. Kim Sun Ah doesn’t exactly sound all that cheery as she narrates.
