Disappearing childhood sweethearts in 20th Century Boy and Girl

The first teaser for upcoming romance drama 20th Century Boy and Girl has been released. Accompanied by gentle piano music, it depicts the childhood stages of our main couple Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine) and Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People). She’ll play a former idol and current actress, while he’ll play a successful businessman.

Directed by Lee Dong-yoon (All’s Well With a Happy Home, Fated To Love You) and written by Lee Sun-hye (junior writer on the Answer Me series), this drama’s story centers around the lives and friendship of three 35-year-old women who grew up knowing each other as neighbors ever since they were young. It’ll capture their journeys as they mature and change in their relationships with the people closest to them.

The teaser begins in a nursery, where a boy and a girl make faces and giggle during nap time as all their classmates remain asleep. Then the scene switches to the boy pushing the girl on a swing set, but soon the younger actors are replaced by their teenage versions (Gugudan’s Mina plays the girl and Kim In-sun plays the boy.)

The relationship between the two stays sweet as they grow up, as the teenage boy peers at the girl napping with puppy dog devotion in his eyes. Then we finally see their adult counterparts, Kim Ji-suk and Han Ye-seul, with her sleeping on his shoulder and him stroking her hair in the very same bus.

During class time, the high school girl surreptitiously opens up her pop idol magazine only to see that the boy has scribbled over her favorite singer. She glares in his direction, and the adult versions replace them again, as Kim Ji-suk laughs over his textbook in Han Ye-seul’s direction. Clearly their dynamic won’t change much as they grow up.

But then… he suddenly disappears and Han Ye-seul makes a forlorn expression as their past memories quickly flash by. She’s shown at an empty playground waiting by herself as Kim Ji-suk disappears in all the memories. But then, he walks up to her in the present, and she breaks into a relieved smile. Their joint voiceover says: “Starting our twenties in the 21st century,” and the teaser ends with the two of them laughing with each other.

MBC Monday-Tuesday drama 20th Century Boy and Girl will begin airing this fall starting September 25, when The King Loves ends its run.

I was looking forward to this drama, but I didn't know who the lead actress was.
I don't like her. Sorry, but after Spy MyeongWol that had such a negative impact on me I didn't like the two actors, but as I later fell in love with Eric in other dramas and eventually became one of my favorites actors, I'll give it a try. I really like the lead male actor and I liked the premise.

I'm surprised by this mistake. There is nowhere that calls Inseong as In-Sun.

Still, I'm excited!

Even though the teaser is only 59 seconds long, it managed to touch my heart. So now I have high hopes for this drama!

Omg what is this sorcery! Yesterday I was just thinking how great it would be if we have a drama that shows how a romantic relationship between a boy and girl who grow up together changes across time.

And I don't mean in the "they were friends and then finally became lovers as adults" way (e.g. Bubblegum or Fight My Way), but in the sense that they start dating in their teens, and then have that relationship develop alongside the changes in their lives. I'm not sure this is what's happening in this drama, but it looks like a high possibility.

Also, I hope the next teaser gives us more on that female friendship. We need more female friendships at the centre of dramas!

It feels sweet, nostalgic, and a bit melancholic. It's much better than what I expected.

I am soooo here for this. It gives me a tvN's 'Bubblegum' feel and that drama was a gem. I am sooo happy my Kim Ji Suk is finally the lead and gets the girl. I am forever bitter that the flop was chosen in I Need Romance 2, instead of him.

This looks more than adorable. Showed to hubby--think we'll be seeing this together. Right up his alley (as long as there is no terminal illness, psychosis, and dead main leads).

This looks good! They had me at Kim Ji-suk and then followed it up with that teaser. I wondered if they will go back and forth a bit with flash backs. I'm for it.
