Premiere Watch: Love Alarm

premwatch_lovealarm2.jpg

Premiere date: August 22
Broadcaster: Netflix
Genre: Youth, romance
Episode count: 8

It’s been a long wait, but Love Alarm is finally about to hit our screens. Adapted from a popular webtoon, the drama centers around romance, unrequited love, and the huge–sometimes disruptive–role technology plays in modern life. The story’s catalyst is a popular dating app that sends notifications to the person (or people) you like whenever you’re within 10 meters of them. Kim So-hyun stars as a young woman who does her best to show the world her bright, happy side. She lost her parents as a child but she keeps her pain and emotional scars wrapped up. When she encounters Song Kang, her app pings and it looks like the start of a romance. But their potential relationship is complicated by the fact that Song Kang’s best friend, Jung Ga-ram has had an unrequited crush on Kim So-hyun for years. Despite having been friends since they were kids, or perhaps because they’ve known each other for so long, Jung has never told Kim about his feelings for her. But when he learns that his best friend and is interested in Kim too, he tries to step back and respect their feelings. However, it’s difficult to predict where your heart may take you, so I’m expecting a lot of sweetness and heartache.

Interview: Get To Know The 3 Main Cast In Netflix’s Love Alarm

 

Director Lee Na-jeong had 3 things in mind when filming “Love Alarm” – she wanted it to be more dynamic, gritty, and realistic. “Chon Kye-young’s webtoon wasn’t all simply light and fun, but it also had depth in terms of its exploration of love,” she said.

 

Hype was fortunate enough to attend the “Love Alarm” press conference in Seoul earlier this week. During the session, we given a better insight into how the main 3 leads – Kim So-hyun (김소현), Jung Ga-ram (정가람) and Song Kang (송강) – approach their respective roles.

 

For the uninitiated, here’s a brief intro about “Love Alarm” by So-hyun:

‘Love Alarm’ features an app called Love Alarm, which rings when someone who has a
crush on you is within a 10-meter radius. ‘Love Alarm’ is a Netflix original series about
Jojo, Hye-young, and Sun-oh building their complicated relationship through this app and the series follows and explores the changing emotions of these characters and budding
romances.”

Kim Jojo

Love_Alarm_Unit_04-181224-0545-1.jpeg?re

“Jojo lives with her aunt after going through a tough childhood due to a tragic event. Jojo perfectly hides her painful past and tries to have a positive attitude towards life. But her life is stirred by the introduction of Love Alarm and Sun-oh’s presence. Jojo and Sun-oh start their first romance after learning about each other’s feelings through the app in a world where people can’t hide their feelings.”

So-hyun on her character: “Jojo has been through and is in a very tough and difficult situation, but never loses her positivity and confidence inside. That made me feel quite sympathetic for her, but she’s someone who you feel more interested in and curious about the more you see her.”

Lee Hye-young

“Son of the helper for Sun-oh’s family, Hye-young is Sun-oh’s best friend. He grew up in a family of modest means, but he also grew up with a loving and caring mother, which is why he is kind and considerate of others. In fact, he cares so much about his friendship with Sun-oh that he hides his feelings for Jojo even though he had a crush on her before Sun-oh did.”

Ga-ram on landing the role: “I was also a huge fan of the original story. And even before the decision was made to create a Netflix original series, I always liked Hye-young. So, when I was offered the role and met with director Lee, I communicated very clearly how much I like the character. I shared with director Lee a lot of my interpretation of Hye-young’s thoughts and we shaped the character together for the series.”

Hwang Sun-oh

Love_Alarm_Unit_02-181127-0255.jpg?resiz

“Being from a rich family and having a career as a model, this handsome guy has everything that a person could wish for. He’s so popular that his Love Alarm never stops ringing, but what no one knows is that he actually feels empty inside. He falls so deeply in love with Jojo that knowing his best friend Hye-young also likes her doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. For the first time, his Love Alarm rings and rings for Jojo.”

Fun fact: It was revealed that Song Kang beat over 900 hopefuls (a lot of them were models and K-pop idols) to emerge victorious as the one to portray Sun-oh. The filmmaker told us that his “innocent and sentimental aura” ultimately won her over.

To get a better insight on how the trio tackled their roles in “Love Alarm”, check out our exclusive interview and what was discussed during the press con:

Love confession has been a major theme in many Korean dramas. How would you explain that concept to international fans?

So-hyun: In our Korean culture, confessing your love to someone and having that love be reciprocated is very important, because once that is done, we can move on to the actual relationship happening.

We really need to know what the other person is feeling in order to start a relationship in full scale. Viewers from other cultures may understand this application as something that can help people become lovers because confessing your love can be very difficult and hard to express what you’re feeling in words.

Screen-Shot-2019-08-23-at-11.39.49-AM.pn

How would you confess your feelings to your love in real life?

So-hyun: Maybe writing a letter.

Ga-ram: It’s probably an etiquette to meet the person face to face and confess your love.

So-hyun: These days, people also don’t just suddenly declare to be boyfriend-girlfriend. It kind of happens naturally.

What was your focus when playing the role?

So-hyun: I tried not to present her as too sad. I was worried that she might come across as someone you simply pity. She’s not someone who wants anyone’s pity and needs to be taken care of or protected, and I made conscious efforts to make sure that she isn’t represented in that way.

Ga-ram: When playing the role, I tried to be honest. I hope that the audiences can feel
Hye-young’s feelings when they see Hye-young looking at Jojo next to Sun-oh.

Song Kang: As you can see from the webtoon, Sun-oh doesn’t talk very much—so I had to think about how to portray this character without saying much, and that’s why I tried my best to focus on his facial expressions that you get to glimpse at.

 

 

Are there any similarities between you and your characters?

So-hyun: There are aspects of Jojo that I thought were quite similar to me. Because I’ve played a lot of sad and depressed characters, a lof of viewers seem to have an impression of me as being reserved, quiet, and melancholic. Of course, there are parts of me that are like that, but I also am a very strong and resilient person inside. Jojo, likewise, may seem like someone who’s fragile and needs someone else to protect her, but she’s actually resilient inside. So I identified with her a lot in her strength and resilience, which made playing the character easier for me.

Ga-ram: Hye-young seems very positive and full of energy when surrounded by people, but he has his own pains and worries. I’m sure anyone can relate to this, but I identified with the dual aspect of Hye-young being positive and energetic around others, but at the same time, secretly worrying about his problems alone.

Song Kang: Even though Sun-oh tends to have his way with everything, but he doesn’t express how he truly feels. I thought that was quite similar to me.

Screen-Shot-2019-08-23-at-11.41.42-AM.pn

On the contrary, how are you different from your characters?

Song Kang: The character Sun-oh has a lot of emotional hurt and he tries to seem tough and does whatever he wants. He really doesn’t express his feelings and I think that’s a little different from my personality. He acts in whatever way he wishes and tries to seem tough.

Ga-ram: My character Hye-young stands afar and keeps his distance from JoJo because of Sun-oh. He doesn’t say what he really feels, but I think in real life if it were up to me, I would go straight for her.

So-hyun: Jojo makes a lot of passive decisions because of certain circumstances that she’s placed in, she’s not able to express her true feelings. Personally if it were me, I like to express myself and how I feel. Jojo is maybe more cautious too.

Screen-Shot-2019-08-23-at-11.46.55-AM.pn

What are your most memorable scene or favourite line in the series?

So-hyun: I like the line, ‘I won’t get crumpled,’ just as director Lee mentioned. I thought that line really expresses well who Jojo is. In the original webtoon, the scene actually has Sun-oh and Jojo sitting next to each other in a small alley when Sun-oh suddenly proposes that they kiss. And they start a conversation from there. That’s when the get to know each other better. I loved that scene. I was very excited to shoot the scene, and was excited in a different way from the way I felt about the scene in the webtoon.

Ga-ram: I would choose the line that goes, ‘To me, it’s all romance—because I’m doing it with you,’ because that encapsulates everything that Hye-young feels about Jojo.

Song Kang: I would choose a line from a scene where the friendship between Hye-young and Sun-oh is fractured. Sun-oh says, ‘The choice is up to Kim Jojo,’ and that was my favourite line.

love-triangle-768x512-1.jpg?resize=696%2

So-hyun, we are curious – you team Hye-young or team Sun-oh?

So-hyun: Fans are divided into two groups: one that supports Hye-young and the other that supports Sun-oh. Both of the characters are so charming in very different ways, so it’s
difficult to choose one. But the reason why I like Hye-young is because he’s very loyal. I feel sympathetic for him for having loved Jojo for such a long time, but at the same time, have such respect for him. I became Hye-young’s fan because he made me feel, ‘Wow, a person could love another person to that extent’.

Last but not least, are there any memorable behind-the-scenes moments that you can share?

So-hyun: It’s been a while, so it’s hard to remember them. But I can recall my scenes with Ga-ram. Because we’re close friends in real life and we had to act very shy with each other on screen, it was funny and a little bit awkward.

How did everyone like the drama?

 

After watching three episodes I can say that I absolutely love so hyun protrayal of jojo. Her acting is so expressive and beautiful. I was really surprised at how melancholic this drama was. I was thinking it was going to be light heart drama with some emotional scenes. It was different in expectations but I loved it. The cinematography is stunning and beautiful.

 

I'm thankful that although jojo is a pitiful character, she is also a strong character. I love the scene of her fighting her cousin, she held nothing back. at first i thought she was just going to stand there and take the hit but nope she knocked her to the ground. I was like gooo jojo!!!

 

This is my most favorite role of her since let's fight ghost. my fears i had regarding this drama was thankfully just fears and not truth.

I love it. I didn't understand how the time passed when ı was watching Love Alarm . I love everything in drama expect  the ending scene :). Yes it's not a light romantic drama,something deeper. 

 

Jojo has a hard life but still strong. Sohyun portrayed her character very well .Also her chemistry with Song Kang and Jung Garam is really good. Love Alarm's viewers started to choose their side. Team hyeyoung ( also ı am in )   ,team sun-oh :) 

 

I only want now season 2 but it is not confirmed yet. So ı will watch again more carefully :)

ahhhh that's too long. but it was the same for the kdrama kingdom, their season 2 is coming out a year later too. on the upside maybe there will be a new movie/drama next year that will come out before season 2.

Hi, You're Going to Be Obsessed With Netflix's New Show, 'Love Alarm'

Do you ever find yourself in a television rut? Maybe you're the kind of person who watches too much true crime, and now checks behind every door when you walk into a room, just to be safe. Perhaps you've been on a reality TV kick, and find yourself reflecting on the events of your day in a confessional-style monologue. Heck, you might watch so much science fiction, you're suddenly unable to differentiate between the real world and all the crazy fantasy stuff you've consumed. Whatever the case, it's probably time to try something new.

Enter Netflix's new series, Love Alarm. It's the TV refreshment you so desperately need. This Korean drama is filled with romance, a gorgeous cast, and a really cool tech element. Love Alarm is the kind of show you'll binge watch as quickly as possible...and then spend the rest of your weekend scrolling through social media, looking for other people who are craving more as badly as you are. Here's what you need to know before you watch.

'LOVE ALARM' IS NETFLIX'S FIRST KOREAN ORIGINAL SERIES

It's about time the streaming service finally created its own original K-drama content! Love Alarm is available to watch in most languages. If you're not down with dubbing, you can watch it in Korean with English subtitles. There are eight hour-long episodes.

IT'S ABOUT THE CRAZIEST DATING APP IDEA, EVER.

Love Alarm is about a popular dating app that sets off an alarm when there is someone who likes you within a 10 meter radius. This pretty much means that nobody can hide their feelings. Like, ever. This is a total nightmare for Kim Jojo, because she likes to keep her feelings on the low.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY DOWNLOAD THE APP, IRL.

Love Alarm's director, Lee Na-jeong says that the app is actually real! No, it probably won't be our next Tinder, but if you have an Android, you can totally download it.

"We invested a lot of time and effort in creating an app that actually works, collaborating with app development specialists, designers, and sound designers so that the audience can immerse themselves in the story, watching the characters feeling various emotions looking at the screen of the Love Alarm app," she explains. The dedication!

Apparently the app can only currently be used in Korea. But, they are apparently working on an iPhone version, so maybe they'll roll one out here, too? Fingers crossed!

THERE'S A LOVE TRIANGLE. 

I mean, would you even want to watch a drama if it didn't have a love triangle? Nope, not really. Anyway, Hye-young has had feelings for Jojo forever, but when his friend, Sun-oh (who is a hunky male model) falls in love with Jojo at first sight...everything gets complicated.

ojo, Sun-oh, and Hye-young all have super interesting backstories, so paired with the thrill of their love triangle, you'll be answering "yes" every time Netflix asks if you're still watching.

IT'S BASED ON A POPULAR WEBTOON.

The idea for the story came from a webtoon (which is basically just an online comic, BTW), by Chon Kye-young. She came up with the concept for Love Alarmwhen she thought of the question, "How would humans adapt to a world where romantic feelings are made visible, and how would that change the way we love?" It's pretty nuts, when you think about it.

The webtoon is set in a world where "invisible things like feelings can turn into something visible." Yes, this makes for a great TV show...but I hope it never happens IRL.

You can read the webtoon on Tumblr.

TWITTER'S ALREADY OBSESSED WITH IT. 

Because Love Alarm is based on a webtoon, it already had a pretty solid fanbase to begin with. Twitter's super thirsty for the whole cast, and already asking for a second season. In other words...prepare to stan.

[HanCinema's News] Kim So-hyun Praised for Maintaining Spirit of Character on "Love Alarm"

 

With the official international release of the new Netflix drama "Love Alarm" particular attention has been called to Kim So-hyun's performance in the lead role. Fans of the original webcomic on which "Love Alarm" is based have praised her fidelity to the character.

 

 

Kim So-hyun's thought process during the performance was hinted at during a press conference for "Love Alarm" held on August 20th, where she discussed the difficulty of trying not to make her character, Jojo, seem too weak or pathetic. Kim So-hyun talked about how circumstances often made her seem that way though she wasn't really, which is a critical nuance behind the webcomic's popularity.

"Love Alarm" is a light science fiction story that explores what happens to students in a world with an app that tells you if someone within ten meters likes you romantically. It was released worldwide on Netflix on August 22nd.
