Retro fun at the world’s hottest attic room in The Best Hit’s new posters

Three new posters for variety-drama The Best Hit are out, and I’m already vibing the nostalgic tone, with Yoon Shi-yoon (Mirror of the Witch) dressed in ’90s fashions to play a star singer. He’s described as free-spirited, and I expect him to disrupt the already dysfunctional lives of young Lee Se-young (Laurel Tree Tailors) and Kim Min-jae (The Lonely Shining Goblin). She’s a failed repeat civil servant exam student while he’s the model student with secret ambitions to become an idol.

The poster above shows all the younger cast members including Dong Hyun-bae (The Prison, Part-time Spy), Astro’s Cha Eun-woo (My Brilliant Life), and Cosmic Girls’s Bona. A tornado swirls in the back as Yoon Shi-yoon flies toward camera like a bird, but only one guy (Dong Hyun-bae) sees his leap. Kim Min-jae is too busy staring adoringly at Lee Se-young, while Cha Eun-woo and Bona look irritated off in the corner. The copy says, “In the hottest attic room beneath the sky, a coming-of-age drama of youths with struggling lives.” Other than the three main leads, the rest are relative rookies at acting, although they are more established as idols with experience in variety, so maybe the hybrid format will give them more confidence in their performance.

In a separate but equally important parallel story arc, Cha Tae-hyun (The Producers) and Yoon Son-ha (Six Flying Dragons) have a strange relationship, which has a one-sided romantic element on Cha’s part. They co-parent Kim Min-jae, who accepts this nontraditional family situation as his norm.

The second poster shows the older cast members, Cha Tae-hyun, Yoon Son-ha, and Hong Kyung-min (Because I Love You), as well as Yoon Shi-yoon enjoying a warm sunny day with the tornado far off in the background, the faded tint giving off a retro atmosphere. The poster says, “The star who disappeared 24 years ago returns as the neighborhood bum.” Hmm, with that and the description of a “similar-age” immature father and mature son, I’m thinking Yoon Shi-yoon may be involved in Kim Min-jae’s birth secret.

The last poster has our four main characters in deep thought, all looking off in different directions. The line at the top reads, “In the hottest attic room beneath the sky, a bittersweet romantic comedy,” while the pink text under the title says, “Twenty. Their first love. Forty. His last love.”

KBS’s Friday-Saturday variety-drama The Best Hit will begin airing starting June 2.

The posters do give off a slightly nostalgic feeling and I am loving the expressions each character gives. It seems like a lighthearted drama, but I wonder what the tornado in the background means.

I love the posters too. Ooh and the 90's no matter which part of the world you were during those years it was hip hop n grunge. Those were the years I had to be an adult, join the labor market and be slave to jobs. Feels like Yoon Shi Yoon's been gone from the small screen awhile and Mirror of the Witch aired just last year!

I think it's a metaphor for the title which makes us ask the question "will the drama hit us like a 'tornado'?"

As long as a house doesn't land on him a la the Wicked Witch of the West, he'll be fine. ;-)

Do twisters occur on land in Korea? I expect that cyclones/hurricanes and waterspouts occur offshore. Now that I think of it, I'm kind of creeped out by the tornado imagery.

The funniest thing about this is that Yoon Shi Yoon's character won't be out of place visually in 2017 at all. That same 90s style of dress is back, everyone is just gonna think he's trendy. Or they should, lmao.

Give him shoulder-length hair and less baggy/droopy jeans (preferably Levi's bell bottoms or boot-cut) with Frye boots, keep the tee and flannel shirt, and he could pass for 1970s. He'd need a puka shell necklance, however. If you miss a fad, just wait twenty years for it to come around again. ;-)

It's really a new story, not only about the past or present, but time traveler which can has connection from his past friends and his present friends
It's seem like the fate bring YSY to the present
It's a brand new story

I find this time-traveling idea refreshing because though Yoon Shi-yoon's character has come from the 1990s, he wouldn't look too out of place nowadays as old school hip hop has become the rave again. So he's guaranteed to become the "best hit" again.

I don't think there's a literal time travel. Just story arc where YSY was a 90s idol but his popularity faded.

Without the time travel I mean. Compare him to HOT other 90's idol and he looks too young.

I recently watched the mini-drama Bing Goo (with Mori all ye Rebel fans!), about a young man in 1979 who gets 'frozen' in time, waking up in 2017. It managed to have both comedy and heart-tugging moments, especially those concerning his loved ones. I'm excited for Best Hit if it manages to do that too! Plus, please please have a 90s sounding sountrack. I keep thinking 'Backstreet's Back!' when I see these posters heehee.

BING GOO is on my to-watch list. Does Mori end up in low-tech cryonic suspension? Or is he Oetzi the Austrian Iceman's Korean cousin who literally ended up on ice on a glacier? Brrrr.

As for the 90s vibe of THE BEST HIT, this great turn of phrase comes to mind: "In the twist of separation, you excelled at being free. Can't you find a little room inside for me?"

The Nylons from Toronto, Canada, started harmonizing in 1978. IMHO, the quartet set the standard for <a cappella groups and boy bands. I've posted some of their live performances on my fan wall -- with the lineup I got to hear at The Bottom Line in NYC in the mid-80s.

What I think about this drama at first was different from the promo given so far. And it was not bad at all. I'm now very impatient to watch the premiere.

And at first too, I kinda worry because this is first attempt of CTH and YHJ as a drama PD. But as soon as I saw the trailer, I could breathe a sigh of relief.

I hope this one is a semi pre produced because CTH and YSY still shooting 1N2D simultaneously. I hope it doesn't affect quality too much. Please keep healthy everyone!

I love CTH smile. In the second one is an adorably awkward and in the third one gives me warm plus full of hope vibes, I think. LOL.

I just actually remember that June 2 is next week, but it seems like they just started shooting very recently. Aside from promos, I don't think both will accomodate other commitment in the meantime. CTH can look drained sometimes on 1n2d when he's working too much, like when he was still doing "Producers."

AHAHA what is Yoon Shi-yoon wearing on his head? I love his look so much in these posters, even his boots! And it would be hilarious if there was an actual tornado used in the drama. I hope the cozy, nostalgic feeling in these posters will be carried on to the show itself.

Is this really going to be time travel, or more like suspended animation -- or an extended sleep a la Washington Irving's short story, "Rip Van Winkle"? Will our hero be sucked up in a tornado during a solar eclipse, only to fall out of the sky in a rain of frogs?! The mind boggles...

Cha tae hyun is also in the past. So most likely, he's Yoon Shi-yoon's father and Min-jae's grandfather(?)

Based on the teasers and summary, Cha Taehyun in the past will still be Cha Taehyun in the present. I don't think there'll be actor change in the time lapse except for that hint about Kim Min-jae's birth secret.

I'm thinking that Siyoon's character just obssessed with 90's idols fashion. He is an idol here & making the 90's idol as his role model which made him obssessed. If it's Friday-Saturday drama, what time will it air?
