Kang Haneul joins You’re My Pet
A newbie’s been added to the manga-adapted movie You’re My Pet
, which brings the movie’s Haneul count to two: First Kim Haneul
and now Kang Haneul
. (Not to mention Jang Geun-seok
, of course.)
Kang Haneul plays a musical actor, Young-soo, who’s friends with
leading man In-ho (Jang Geun-seok) and also acts as his romance coach.
Hm, I wonder how he’ll seem like the experienced one when he’s years
younger than Jang (he’s 21) and still has his baby face. Maybe that’ll
be part of the funny.
Kang’s also got a bit of musical experience (he’s performed in productions of Thrill Me, Spring Awakening, Carpe Diem
, and La Vida
), so the movie’ll give him a chance to show off some of his singing.
But really, the bigger question this news raises is: They’re still casting??? This movie was announced ages ago (more than a year back) and then stalled for months with no updates. Then Kim Haneul was cast and news resumed this March,
so I’d presumed they’d be chugging right along. Eep! Let’s hope the
production jumps into high gear when it (finally!) begins principal
photography this month.
Kang called You’re My Pet
“an entertaining, warm movie that
anybody who’s in love will be able to relate to. Since I’m playing such a
bright, lively character, I’ll do my best to be an energizing force in
this romantic comedy.”You’re My Pet
features a beautiful, competent careerwoman
who unfortunately lacks that same capable spirit in her personal
relationships, who “adopts” a classical ballet dancer (Jang) as a pet,
and follows the friendship that develops between them. I’m dubious about
the plot, but Jang Geun-seok pouring on the cute, falling for his
noona, dancing, and flinging his gloriously lustrous locks around like
he’s some Pantene model? (“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful!”) It’s
either going to be cringe-inducingly awful, or some kinda awesome.
