OFFICIAL STILLS MV
Hi: Gumi translated some excerpts from the Shine or Go Crazy press conference.
Lee Duk Hwa: I’ve filmed several projects with #JangHyuk, never seen him complain or frown. He has great energy. If he ever gets sick, that would mean everybody else already fell dead. Despite killer schedule, he never shows any complaints, that’s what I like the most
JH: I wanted to try acting royal. But I’m dressed like a beggar, not too different from my roles before. I felt tricked. (laughs)
LJH: I was so surprised when I first saw Jang Hyuk. He was so good looking, his jaw line and eyes…
JH: When I first saw #LimJuHwan, it was night but I thought it was day time, cuz his face was shining too much. Honey Lee: Would you guys please be sincere?
(In response to question pointing out his not so young age)JH: You know, there are so many sunbaenims, 40 is like a baby at our filming site.
JH: Shine or Go Crazy filming site is like Real Men filming site. Only men, everywhere. I put stars next to schedule when I film with OYS or LHN.
OYS: I touch him a lot, we are having fun filming.
JH: She touched me a lot, If it wasn’t a drama it would’ve been sexual harassment.
OYS: I was wondering if I should rest for a while after Jang Bori. …I heard Jang Hyuk was doing this, and thought, ‘oh I have to do this’.
I wasn’t thrilled with the first stills from this drama but these latest ones are making me more enthusiastic!
WHO am I kidding? I can’t waittttt!!!! Prince Hyukie looks delicious!
Plot? What plot? Ah you guys whatch for the… Ok ,ok, here is the plot according to asianwiki:
Synopsis – Wang So (Jang Hyuk) is the Prince of Goryeo. He had a lonely childhood, due to his cursed fate. As he grew up, he realized his talent to become a King. Wang So looks bright, but he has a wounded mind. One day, he meets Shin Yool (Oh Yeon-Seo), who is the Last Princess of Balhae. She was born with the fate of becoming the light for another country. Because of her fate, she faces death. Through a one night marriage, Wang So and Shin Yool become connected and grow to love each other.

So I have the usual fears: Will this be well written? It is based on a romance web-novel “Bitnageona Michigeona” by Hyun Go-Woon which was a success. Based on the web-novel we shouldn’t expect it to be historically accurate or focused on much more than romance. Definitely not a “serious” sageuk so my hope is that it will be fun and have heart. We are expecting to park the brain for this one but who knows? It might surprise us (like FTLY did by having much more depth than I would’ve expected from a rom com)
Another worry is, will Hyuk have chemistry with his leading lady played by Oh Yeon Seo (Jang Bo Ri is here)? I already like how they look together so I’m feeling hopeful, but I haven’t seen her in anything so she is definitely a mystery that I can’t wait to unveil (ironically most of the stills show her wearing a veil :p). I’m excited but scared! You know the feeling?
Shine or Go Crazy will air on Mondays and Tuesdays on MBC approximately in mid January after Pride and Prejudice
