Scenes from Padam Padam’s recent shoots
Lots and lots of new stills are trickling out from the production of Padam Padam…The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats
, aka the cable drama from lauded writer Noh Hee-kyung
and featuring a high-profile main cast. And while Jung Woo-sung
) and Han Ji-min
(Cain and Abel
) are the drama’s two headliners, it’s Kim Bum
I’m staring at. Or rather, his newly grown-out mane of glory. That’s it: He should never cut his hair again. Rawr.
I love that his character, Kook-soo (who names their kid Noodles,
seriously?) looks rakish and mischievous, but is described as guardian
angel. Jung Woo-sung’s character Kang-chil may be half a generation
older, but it appears Kook-soo’s got the street smarts. Kang-chil gets
sent to the slammer on false murder charges, spending 16 years locked
up, and it’s there that Kook-soo watches his back: “If it’s to help
Kang-chil, Kook-soo will do whatever it takes to solve the problem.” All
together now: Awww.
It’s Han Ji-min’s character who’s the selfish one of this main trio,
which is a nice change for once, since it’s usually the heroine who’s
guileless and winsome while the hero’s the immature/prickly/cold-hearted
jerk. And given that description, I find it amusing that she’s the one
posing with Bambi below. Ha.
I enjoy seeing another familiar face among the cast in drama veteran Na Mun-hee
playing Jung Woo-sung’s mother. In these stills, she gets into a little
tussle with one of the other ajummas when a disagreement escalates, and
it’s Kang-chil who pulls them apart. Don’t mess with tough granny.Padam Padam
premieres on jTBC on December 5.
