Please Come Back, Mister PD says Rain and Lee Moon Shik are like castaways on the moon
Well, K-drama lovers, we're past the halfway point of supernatural romantic comedy Please Come Back, Mister! Are you having as much fun watching it as I am? Another person who's having a lot of fun is the show's production designer. Since the premiere, the PD has regularly posted behind-the-scenes images and episode stills in a collection of PD notes, and earlier this month released a fun poster that parodies award-winning 2009 film Castaway on the Moon.
Here is the original poster:
Castaway on the Moon is the official English title given to Korean film 김씨 표류기 (literal translation, Mr. Kim's Experience Adrift), which is about a man who attempts suicide but gets stranded on two islets in the middle of the Han River instead. The islets are a nature sanctuary off-limits to the public, and situated to where the odds of anyone seeing him there or rescuing him are slim to none. He might as well be on the moon, just like Lee Jae Hoon (Rain) and his pilot (Lee Moon Shik) in Please Come Back, Mister. The deserted island they get stuck on when their little plane goes down is so remote, they might as well be on the moon.
The production designer also released these fun episode stills. Enjoy them!
