Don’t you love those? That moment when you realize….YES, I can not wait for this drama? Sometimes it is a drama you’ve been looking for, sometimes it’s a drama that you’ve been giving side-eye to (or even an eye-roll) and then sometimes there are dramas where you go in going eh and come out going HoLY FuDGE.
Switch just did that to me.
Switch is the new Jang Geun Suk drama starring Jang Geun Suk, Han Ye Ri, and….Jang Geun Suk. Honestly, when I was guessing the plot of this drama in my previous post never, never ever would I ever have expected Jang Geun Suk to be playing TWO separate characters! Or, my guess three separate characters, the one man, the other man, and the man the other man turns into after he learns the error of his ways and or falls in love with the heroine? When I said I wanted to see him in a more serious role, not as the strutting whatnots he’s been playing, who knew that we’d not only get one but both! Check out the teaser and see what I mean:
So we get Jang Geun Suk as the prosecutor and co-worker of the heroine and we get Jang Geun Suk as the look-a-like con man who (who still just happens to know the law?), I can’t tell if he’s pressed into the job, like she knows he’s not the prosecutor but for some reason she needs him to pretend to be, or if she mixes up their identities and he decides to play along. Also, is it me or did the prosecutor character we see look like he has a little bit of bad guy in him? Do you think he becomes him, finds out he’s evil or mixed up in something bad and then con man Jang Geun Suk gets pinned for Non con man Jang Geun Suk?
Either way, did you see that strut? That hair? Boo-yeah, Jang Geun Suk is BACK! And we are more than happy to have him.
Now I was a little unsure about Han Ye Ri the entire time I saw her in the teaser I kept thinking she looked familiar and after a quick look at Wikipedia, turns out she was in Commitment with T.O.P, she played his almost love interest (no spoilers). I want to say, I thought she looked familiar, but I haven’t seen that movie since 2013 and I can’t believe I remember her from that!
I’m officially super excited about this show! And luckily, we don’t have to wait too long as it’s scheduled to premiere this month after the end of Return! I’m so glad to see that Jang Geun Suk is back on his game, we’ve really missed him! Ugh. Oh no. Now I have an urge to go and rewatch Love Rain while we wait…don’t let me do it guys, don’t let me do it!
