Siblings? Well I certainly hope that’s not the kind of chemistry you’re going to convey ONscreen. Don’t get me wrong. I can’t wait to see how the four of you are going to be adorably chummy with each other. I think we’re in for more of an A.N.Jell-vibe, from the setup anyway, than an F4 one, since one of them is a cross-dressing girl and all. I’m just crossing my fingers in the hopes that the offscreen camaraderie can translate into a romantic chemistry that I can get behind.
Park: “…But Yoochun and I both have bright, outgoing personalities, so without even having a chance to say the words, we quickly became like friends who had known each other for years. As I started acting I became more outgoing so I’m not a shy person, but Yoochun is really not shy at all. He has a great personality. He always thinks of other people and he’s a deep person, and a considerate friend.”
PD Kim Yun-sung said, “The actors’ ages are roughly the same, so they all became friends quickly, without reservations, making the mood on set always bright. The staff always jokes that they’re the modern version of their characters. I think we can happily anticipate good things.”
Park’s character in the drama cross-dresses to attend the school, and makes friends with the others, becoming one of the boys. Micky Yoochun’s character is known for sticking to his principles, Yoo Ah-in plays the hopeless screw-up, and Song Joong-ki plays Joseon’s Number One Playboy.
This? Should be awesome.
