Me-ow. Well they were certainly going for sex kitten with the poster concept, only they seem to have split the difference, sexy for Kim Ha Neul and… just kitty for Jang Geun Suk. How come he gets bad hair, a furry sweater AND a box, while she gets a shirt and a cheeky lolli? A few more posters and a teaser (finally!) are out for the upcoming November release of highly anticipated rom-com remake “You’re My Pet,” and so far, they’ve done a good job of keeping my interest in the strange pairing between a noona and her pet.
Kim Ha Neul looks even better here than in the first poster, all come-hither tease with the tagline: “Come on, baby,” while Jang Geun Suk’s poster goes for the cutesy pet-on-your-doorstep vibe, with the tagline: “Would you like to try raising me?”
The trailer looks fun, and shows the pair in a pretty literal interpretation of the pet-master relationship, where Kim Ha Neul is the uptight careerwoman and Jang Geun Suk is the new puppy that she has to housebreak. I didn’t know he was actually going to ACT like a pet, which just makes it all the more ridiculous and awesome. The premise of raising a man-pet is batty anyway, so why not just run with it?
At the end of the teaser he crawls into her bed like a puppy and when she balks, he assures her, “I only touched your breasts, nothing else!” Pffffft. Down boy. I sort of can’t believe that no one’s thought to cast Jang Geun Suk as a man-puppy until now. Doesn’t this just seem tailor-made for him alone?
“You’re My Pet” premieres in November. Between this and “Penny-Pinching Romance,” it looks like we’ve got a battle of the noona killers going on. Aw, and it’s not even my birthday.
