"Virgins empowered in tvN comedy The Superman Age"


"When I first heard about The Superman Age, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the comedy about characters developing superpowers if they hit the age of 25 with their virginity intact — it sounded fun, but would it be slapstick? Lowbrow? Gag comedy?

What I didn’t expect was for it to be utterly deadpan and slick — something you’d expect of Heroes, or X-Men, maybe. The teaser’s tone is grave without being the least bit campy, and if you weren’t paying attention to the dialogue, you’d think it were a high-budget action movie. Flashy, stylish, cool.

And then you listen to the dialogue and realize they’re saying things like “You two are virgins, right?” and “Men who have protected their virginity for 25 years… one day, suddenly… gain superpowers.” The comedy completely depends on the contrast between what the show does and what it says, and that makes it totally hilarious........"

Thank you @MadraRua and @valsava...:)

There was an earlier article about it on Dramabeans.

Strange superpowers fuel tvN comedy The Superman Age


A new drama is coming to tvN, and it’s being described as a “fantastic youth growth comedy,” which I can see from the title, The Superman Age, and its off-kilter premise. It’s hilarious, seriously.

The Superman Age: Episodes 1-2


Unbelievable yet so believably funny. The Superman Age manages to make a ridiculous premise quite relatable, and the most pitiful characters heartfelt and humorous. We get a nice introduction to our two main superheroes, along with brief appearances by the rest of the cast. You may find yourself shaking your head at the humor but enjoying it nonetheless because this show has got incredible comedic timing and a hilariously convincing agency about saving the world.

Note: This is just a first recap to introduce the show, and we don’t plan to keep up with the full series.
