Published on | Source
The war of romantic comedies has started.
Two movies that treat love as fresh subject matter are being released at the same time on November 10th. Han Ye-seul and Song Joong-ki in "Penny Pinchers" and Kim Ha-neul and Jang Keun-suk's "You Pet".
The November screens are stronger in romantic comedies rather than tearful melodramas this month. The two romantic comedies that will be displayed in Chungmuro are big news, as Jang Keun-suk and Song Joong-ki take on the lead.
Jang Keun-suk's "You Pet" is based on Japanese cartoonist Ogawa Yaoi's original work. Ji-eun (Kim Ha-neul) is skilled and socially acknowledged but terrible in personal relationships and In-ho (Jang Keun-suk) has always been popular amongst women, and these two live together as owner and pet, building on their friendship while getting to understand each other.
Song Joong-ki is now the 'it' guy, as he became famous for the dramas "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" and "Deep-rooted Tree". Taking on the role of Ji-woong, an unemployed youth who thinks there's no stopping relationships even without money, Song Joong-ki has gone through a massive transformation from a royal prince to a jobless nincompoop.
Looking at the present condition of movie ticket sales on the morning of November 10th, in the viewing range of 12 years and above, "You Pet" is 3rd, and in the viewing range of 15 and above, "Penny Pinchers" is running 4th.
