First action-packed teaser for Age of Feeling

First action-packed teaser for Age of Feeling

Here’s our first peek at the new 1930s noir drama Age of Feeling, featuring lush costumes, period sets, and bare-fisted combat. The first teaser looks pretty good, and manages to deliver an action-packed epic feel. I’m really looking forward to the visual aspect of this show, because the art direction looks fantastic and atmospheric. Let’s hope the other pieces come together for some gritty noir fun.

The 24-episode drama stars Kim Hyun-joong (Playful Kiss) as a street fighter in 1930s Shanghai. I have to say, so far his transformation from pretty boy to down-and-dirty fighter looks great, though we’ll have to wait and see how his performance shakes out in the show itself. He’s got a first-love-turned-mortal-enemy in Im Soo-hyang (IRIS 2), who looks like a badass gangster from the look of the teaser. She asks a mystery man: “Will you raise your sword at me, or will you become my sword?” She loses her father because of the hero’s family and vows revenge, and has to war with her feelings to see her mission through.

"Age of Feeling": More new stills revealed!

All the promotional stills of KBS’s romantic action noir Age of Feeling are looking appropriately romantic, action-packed, or noirish. On the other hand, the behind-the-scenes photos are considerably lighter in tone; it seems like the cast is having a blast filming the show, which is always nice to see (though sometimes jarring when the stuff in the drama proper is so serious).

Here are a set of photos from both camps, with the new stills and posters capturing that moody sweeping epic vibe… while the cast laughs it up amongst themselves when in between takes. Leading the pack is Kim Hyun-joong as the drama’s tough-guy hero, while Im Soo-hyang ditches the kimono she’d been wearing in previous promos for a qipao, looking pretty fierce herself and ready for a fight. Chances are good that she’ll be doing some of that fighting with the hero, against whom she holds a grudge (his father was responsible for her father’s death) and swears revenge, which is complicated when she falls for him.

In the photos, Kim Hyun Joong shows of his muscular body, a complete change in look from his previous ‘flower prince’ image to a wild, tough appearance, made even more so by the cuts and bruises on him, the actor looking like he just got out of a fight.

On his body, Kim Hyun Joong said, “At first I tried to get that ‘sculpted’ look, but thinking about it, they didn’t have workout equipment like today or things like protein supplements in the 1930s. So I worked out on a diet of just meat and vegetables, like they might have done back then. So when people are watching, they might think, ‘his body isn’t even that great.’ I’d like it if people kept in mind that I worked out with the era of my character in mind.”
