Exciting 1st Teaser for new drama The Smile Has Left Your Eyes

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am so excited for the new drama The Smile Has Left Your Face starring Seo In Guk (Shopping King Louie) & Jung So Min (Because This is My First Life).  So much that I have been stalking TvN Drama on Youtube just waiting for that first glimpse of the drama.  Finally, all the stalking paid off as we get an intense vibed 1st teaser.

The Smile Has Left Your Face is the story of murder, cover-ups, and a possible killer, a sexy sous chef played by Seo In Guk. He’s a sexy chef who begins dating the sister of a cop who is investigating a string of murders. I am just thrilled that Seo In Guk gets to stretch his acting skills and play a complex, possible bad guy character this time around.

The cast is complete with Park Sung Woong (Life on Mars) playing a suspicious cop & brother. He begins investigating the suspicious death of his fiance and finds the main suspect going after his younger sister. Is our sexy sous chef really innocent or is he playing some kind of warped psychological murder game? I can’t wait to find out.

The Smile Has Left Your Face begins airing September 26th on TvN.  Will you be watching?

  1. I’m conflicted — the original Japanese drama with Kimura Takuya was so dark and he was so damaged and it was made in a different era in J-doramas… I cannot imagine them making One Million Stars Falling From the Sky with the same outcomes as the original. Granted, this IS cable, but really? I reserve judgment, and I like the cast choices, but I just don’t know…

    • I saw a few comments about the original so I was curious and looked up the premise and then the ending. After reading that, I’m really not sure how it will translate to a Kdrama, and if I’ll like Seo In Guk in it, or like the drama. I will be there with you reserving judgement. LOL

      • All that being said, I thought that the original was very interesting and complex, and it took golden boy Kimutaku to make it all the more disturbing (and successful). He was so beautiful, so it made him all the more dangerous. I still have a copy on DVD and I think I’m going to have to pull it out for a rewatch.

  2. I don’t know about the original in any specifics (and I don’t want to until after I watch this!), but I do know that it’s dark and the MC is an antihero or possibly worse….

    Which is not generally my cup of tea, but honestly, Seo In Guk could not have picked a better role right now I think. He wanted to do a darker character anyway (and as much as I love him as a cheerful romantic, I can understand an actor with his talent wanting to stretch, and to not be typecast).

    But also, taking a role right now that has a lot of ambiguity where people are supposed to have mixed feelings about the character is perfect for his returning role after the military issues. I can’t help but feel that the entire arc of his return has been so very carefully orchestrated that keeping the role fairly dark and ambiguous may well have been a condition of him taking it. Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out!
