A new poster and teaser for “My Lovely Boxer” have been released!
“My Lovely Boxer” is a sports drama based on the novel “My Lovely Boxer Lee Kwon Sook” by Choo Jong Nam, the winner of the second Kyobo Bookstore Story Contest. It’s the story of genius boxer Lee Kwon Sook (Kim So Hye) and a cold-blooded agent Kim Tae Young (Lee Sang Yeob) who doesn’t feel bad about fixing matches for money and the success of his athletes.
On July 24, a new main poster for “My Lovely Boxer” was released, featuring the boxing ring and stadium, as well as the main characters Kim Tae Young, Lee Kwon Sook, Kim Oh Bok (Park Ji Hwan), Lee Cheol Young (Kim Hyung Mook), Han Jae Min (WINNER’s Kim Jin Woo), Jung Soo Yeon (Ha Seung Ri), and Han Ah Reum (Chae Won Bin).
The poster’s retro aesthetic is reminiscent of old leaflets advertising boxing matches from the past. As a character who enters the world of match fixing to save pitcher Kim Hee Won, sports agent Kim Tae Young captivates with his confident and charismatic gaze as well as his cold smile in the poster. The poster’s center features Lee Kwon Sook, who stands out in her red sports uniform with her taped fists raised and ready for a fight.
In addition, match-fixer Kim Oh Bok adds tension with his icy gaze as he squares off against Kim Tae Young. Lee Chul Yong, Lee Kwon Sook’s father and boxing mentor, appears to be howling in the background, expressing his thirst for victory.
Han Jae Min, the vice principal of the preschool where Lee Kwon Sook works as an assistant teacher, dazzles with his sweet smile, while sports agent Jung Soo Yeon of About Sports dazzles with her charisma. Han Ah Reum, the world boxing champion and boxing world idol, exudes confidence and determination.
Along with the poster, the newly released teaser creates a tense atmosphere as Lee Kwon Sook, who had been hiding from the public, is pursued by reporters and flashing camera lights. Lee Kwon Sook becomes even more enraged as Kim Tae Young suggests a risky retirement game. Lee Kwon Sook vows never to return to the ring after recalling her painful past.
“Do you know how I’ve lived?” cries Lee Kwon Sook. “Can you tell me why I went into hiding?” Kim Tae Young, on the other hand, remains calm as he reaches out, saying, “So let’s run away together.” “From the ring,” making an intriguing suggestion and building anticipation for the duo’s story.
