“My Strange Hero” Unveils Romantic Main Poster Ahead Of Drama Premiere

Nov 28, 2018
by Y. Shin

On November 28, SBS’s upcoming drama “My Strange Hero” dropped its main poster!

“My Strange Hero” is about a man named Kang Bok Soo (Yoo Seung Ho), who returns to his old school to enact revenge after he was expelled as a student due to a false and terrible accusation. However, he soon becomes entangled again with his first love from that time, Son Soo Jung (Jo Bo Ah).

In the poster, Kang Bok Soo and Son Soo Jung are in a hidden corner of their high school’s rooftop where the latter sits on top of a desk and the former leans over her flirtatiously. Kang Bok Soo looks as if he’ll press his lips onto Son Soo Jung’s as he places one of his hands on her shoulders, but a short distance remains between them. The poster is colored in a pastel tone that portrays the couple’s close relationship.

On the left side of the poster, the phrase “Our second first love story” is written, while on the right side of the poster, the words “On a good day in 2009…” can be read. With these two phrases that represent Kang Bok Soo and Son Soo Jung’s fond memories of spending their time at the high school where they first met, as well as their reunion nine years later, viewers are curious to know more about this couple.

 

The main poster shoot for “My Strange Hero” took place in April at a high school in Yongdan, Seoul. The staff prepared music to play in the background in order for the atmosphere to remain romantic during the shoot. Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah entered into rehearsals immediately, as they were already used to filming for the drama together, and the two portrayed a couple’s feelings of being in love for the first time perfectly.

The production staff stated, “With just two weeks left until its premiere, the poster that represents the drama’s atmosphere has finally been released. On top bringing back faint memories of one’s first love, ‘My Strange Hero’ will be a project that causes viewers to want to fall in love, and it will also have their hearts racing.”

“My Strange Hero” premieres on December 10 and will be available on Viki. Check out the latest trailer below!

It gives me manhwa/manga feels . So many mangas have this kind of cover  wow2-onion-head-emoticon.gif?1292862527

 

I love it. YSH's cool guy vibes, all the innocence of a high school first love... Plus the book beside JBA gives me all the feels. I'm so on board for more poetry. :relaxed:

Yoo SeungHo with an axe to grind.  Yes.  Betrayal by the one person you expected would be on your side no matter what.  Plotting revenge and/or vindication as an embittered adult losing the innocence and naivety of first love.  And potentially forgiveness (?) in the end as a resolution?  Sounds like a full range of emotions for YSH to grapple with.  Bring on 10Dec!  :D

Yoo Seung Ho & Jo Bo Ah go back and forth between rivalry to romance in 'My Strange Hero' main poster + teaser clip

 
 
 
 

SBS's upcoming Mon-Tues drama series 'My Strange Hero' (formerly known as 'Revenge Is Back') is teasing a little bit of drama, a little bit of mystery, and a little bit of romance in its main poster plus 2nd teaser clip!

 

 

My Strange Hero' revolves around a man named Kang Bok Soo, who was wrongly accused as the assailant of a serious school violence case during his student days, ultimately earning expulsion. Years later, he returns to school in an attempt to get his revenge, but ends up becoming wrapped up in yet another complicated case. 
 
Starring male lead Yoo Seung Ho as Kang Bok Soo, female lead Jo Bo Ah as Son Soo Hyun, Kwak Dong Yeon as Oh Se Ho, and more, 'My Strange Hero' is set to premiere this December 10 at 10 PM KST. In the meantime, you can check out Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah's heart-fluttering main drama poster below, as well as the dramatic story teaser clip above!

Those posters are so dreamy :wub:.  When is Press Con?  Any idea what is on SBS Mon/Tue 3/4Dec in that drama slot?  I thought Fox Bride Star finished this week?  So strange to leave a breather before the next drama comes out.

Lee Jong Suk mini-drama (3 episodes) is airing right now, Hymn of death :)

 

We still have no confirmed date for the press con. Usually the date is 2/3 days before the premiere.

Next week we may get an interview of the cast. Usually the cast is required to appear on TV to promote their drama, sometimes they participate in a variety show or do an interview. In the case of YSH,  we can keep dreaming forever to see him appearing in a variety show :lol:. For IANAR,  we had a long interview and for Ruler KSH only  did an interview before the premiere . I do remember a reporter went to the set of Remember ( a SBS drama) and interviewed PMY and YSH as part of the promotion. They were busy filming outdoors. 

 

On a side note, SBS is doing a dirty play with the dramas. For example they cut down  the episodes of 30 to 17 and fox bride star. They were originally scheduled for 40 episodes but mid-way for unknown reasons SBS decided to shorten the number of episodes to 32. Let's cross fingers something like this won't happen to our drama. Various unofficial sources state 32 episodes but we never know.

 Do you know which episode is it ? I'm curious to know what she said.  I will post that portion with eng subs if I find them. 

 

I've watched her in happy together (she made a guest appearance for the 500th episode because she is friends with one of the host) and in battle trip.  I was surprised (in a good way) by her, she was so different. Playing always secondary roles and spoiled bratty rich heiresses made me to not have a good impression of her.

Episode 158, its last night episode... usually the eng sub release on saturday/sunday 

Yes, she is really different in variety show. I like her personality, she likes extreme sport too..

Yeah they have been doing strange things of late. They did the same with Your Honour/Dear Judge.  They held Press con on the same day as Premiere for 30 but 17 and also YH?  It was so strange.  :huh:  With YH they held a mini Press Con a week before and then radio show on the same day and then the main Press Con on the same day as the Premiere which was unheard of.  I don't know If it's because usually Wiki and other sources just put down 20/40 as the default and everyone just assumed it was that.  We had the same problem with those 2 dramas and right to the end everyone was left guessing when the finale would be.

Watch: “My Strange Hero” Reveals Cute Making Video With Jo Bo Ah, Yoo Seung Ho, Kwak Dong Yeon, And More

Nov 28, 2018
by S. Park

On November 27, upcoming SBS drama “My Strange Hero” released a making-of video from its poster shoot!

“My Strange Hero” is about a man named Kang Bok Soo (played by Yoo Seung Ho) who returns to his former high school to get revenge after he was falsely accused and later expelled. Things don’t exactly go according to plan when he unexpectedly reunites with his first love, Son Soo Jung (played by Jo Bo Ah).

In the video, Jo Bo Ah and Yoo Seung Ho are dressed in school uniforms. They smile as they lean in toward each other and shyly laugh as their faces touch. As the shoot continues, they become more comfortable and capture the perfect kiss for the poster.

The actors then move on to their individual posters. Yoo Seung Ho shows off various poses while sitting on a desk and holding a motorcycle helmet. His rebellious but cute poses draw audible reactions from the staff, which makes Yoo Seung Ho burst into laughter. For her poster, Jo Bo Ah transforms into a teacher. Holding a book and a marker, she stands confidently amidst the rows of desks in a classroom.

Kwak Dong Yeon also appears on set. Donning a stylish suit and standing by his desk, he looks professional yet stylish as the school’s head director Oh Se Ho. Holding a toy gun, Kim Dong Young portrays the innocent trickster Lee Kyung Hyun. Park Ah In holds up a poster that reads, “I can’t live without Bok Soo,” giving viewers a peek at her role as Bok Soo’s loveable stalker Yang Min Ji.

“My Strange Hero” Offers Glimpse Into Yoo Seung Ho And Jo Bo Ah’s Past

Nov 29, 2018
by J. Lim

Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah are ready to make viewers’ hearts race in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “My Strange Hero.”

“My Strange Hero” will tell the story of a man named Kang Bok Soo (Yoo Seung Ho), who was expelled after being accused of violence and bullying and returns as an adult to enact revenge. However, revenge really isn’t on the table when he arrives as he gets swept up in an unexpected situation. Jo Bo Ah will take on the role of Son Soo Jung, who was Kang Bok Soo’s first love and is now a part-time teacher.

The drama has released new stills of Kang Bok Soo and Son Soo Jung as students that shows their relationship when they were younger. He goes to school at night to make sure she gets home safely after a late-night study session. While waiting for her to exit the school, he checks his appearance in the mirror of his motorcycle, smoothing his hair down to look more presentable. It will be interesting to see how their interactions change over the years from this sweet moment.

The production staff stated, “Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah both light up the set with their bright smiles. Despite this being the first time they’re working together, they have amazing chemistry. We’re confident they will bring the warmth and excitement of a first love story to viewers this winter.”

“My Strange Hero” is set to make its premiere on December 10 and will be available on Viki! Check out the latest teaser for the drama below.

Ok. Thank you. I will check it out.

 

@nrllee wow it's worse than I thought. I don't remember the last time I've watched a SBS drama. I'm mostly watching cable dramas.  This is a first for me to hear 2 dramas held the press con  on the same day. Yeah, korean wiki stated 40 episodes for fox bride star then changed to 32.  It is really weird to still not know the number of episodes when you are watching.  But I  guess SBS doesn't state it purposely , they can decide half-way to cut down the dramas. It surely has to do with ratings. Nowadays ratings are bad for public channel dramas.  It gives me more reasons to not watch SBS dramas anymore. I  don't like when drama within drama happens.

I know.  It was pitiful even the afterglow was limited?  I was expecting post drama interviews and some pics of wrap up party but nothing?  It was like they just churned the dramas out and then had a small wrap up party with no pics inside or anything.  No post drama thoughts or interviews either?  It was the same for 30 but 17 and YH (both SBS).  Just a rushed clip on the finale day with final thoughts and that was it.  But yes it was so weird to not know how many episodes from the get go and so much of the conversations in the threads was trying to work out how many were left?  Maybe it's budgetary constraints because they are a free to air public channel and don't have as much cash to splash around unlike cable TV which is paid.  And it was even more confusing because of the Asian Games which interrupted episode screening on some nights as well.  Hopefully it will be better with this drama.

[Orion's Daily Ramblings] "My Strange Hero" Releases Romantic Poster With Yoo Seung-ho and Jo Bo-ah

 

 

photo1020150.jpg

 

 

We're slowly getting to see all the past nastiness that the protagonist of "My Strange Hero" has gone through in the latest teasers, revealing the tragic event which resulted in him being framed and kicked out of school. The drama's poster takes a sweeter, more feel-good approach with a hopeful message and a depiction of youthful love.

The drama might be handling some dark themes while calling itself a bright and cheerful rom-com, but you could fool me with this poster of Yoo Seung-ho and Jo Bo-ah in teen adorableness. It's all lovey-dovey and cute, while the type reads "You are my second first love story". I'm guessing that refers to the romance of the leads rekindling after the misunderstanding will be cleared.

The poster also gives us context for the scene depicted, reading 'On a good day in 2009...' I can't help but find that somewhat ominous, however. Perhaps this day will be the last these youths will have a moment of innocence in, if it's the day of the incident. The premise is not my thing, but I hope audiences get solid drama and adorable romance. "My Strange Hero"is premiering on December 10th on SBS.

:o Post-dramas interviews are not related to the budget,  it is up to the actors to accept them. Out of the 3 public broadcasters,  MBC should be doing this since their ratings are the lowest. YH and 3017 had 10% ratings moreover. These are considered good ratings ... well, maybe not good enough for SBS.  I re-checked again, it is said MSH is a 32 episodes drama. We have never seen a 10 episodes drama in k-dramaland, what can happen is a  extension.  SBS is promoting it well now and.... a bit greedy as they've already claimed a title for the OTP : "Korea's first love man and woman", they claimed they will reaffirm YSH nation's boyfriend title. But does it enough ammunitions to achieve that ? <_< A director with movie-like skills and a better writer should have helmed it then.

@Berou  SBS is probably in a better place now.  YH and 3017 were coming off a major slump for SBS - Undateables was a major flop (it languished at 2-3%) and everyone was raving about Secretary Kim (tvN again) and then it was Mr Sunshine (also tvN).  So I think they were desperate to try new things...so they started doing stuff like combining promos (they had this weird commercial which promoted YH and 3017 together (?) - so weird to join them like that).  And then with the mini Press Con, and with a Radio Broadcast/main Press Con on the same day as Premiere.  We were all scratching our heads with the strange promo campaign.  I think they were relieved that ratings picked up after that so the ship steadied.  Still not fantastic though?  If tvN is pulling 8% and then over 10% for some of the recent dramas, it's not great for free to air channels.

 

Anyway I am hoping that this drama will kick off well.  Fingers crossed. :sweatingbullets:

@nrllee it is still strange for SBS to do that, even after a major flop. Other channels (KBS and MBC) had flops too, they haven't done what SBS is doing right now. Yes 10 % is not that great for a public channel. 15 % are the minimum for a drama to be really successful now, but nowadays getting 2 digits ratings is a miracle for those channels.

The competition is stiff but MSH still stands a chance. If the timeslot was on other days, it would have been too tough
