Angel wings and tutus in white on KBS fantasy Dan, Only Love
The first stills and video teaser have been released for KBS’ upcoming drama Dan, Only Love starring actors L a.k.a. Kim Myung-soo (Miss Hammurabi) and Shin Hye-sun (Thirty But Seventeen). Lee Dong-gun (Fox Bride Star) is also part of the main cast but no luck at getting a look at his character for this round of promos.
The story is a fantasy rom-com with L playing the role of Kim Dan, a troublemaker angel who finds himself locked outside of heaven’s gates. In order to return to the heavenly realm, Dan is tasked with a mission. He’s to become cupid for a ballerina named Lee Yeon-seo – the character played by Shin Hye-sun. The challenge is that ballerina Lee Yeon-seo doesn’t believe in love and is jaded by her life’s experiences. However, meeting Dan sparks a change in Lee and she begins to find hope in her life once again.
In the newly released stills, L is already looking mischievous, like he did something that he perhaps should not have done. Dressed in white angel garb, we see hints of his bright but wayward personality in the photos.
The teaser is moodier in its tone and focuses on Shin Hye-sun’s role as a ballerina. It starts with Shin Hye-sun dressing up for a ballet performance, which intercuts with clips of her dancing on stage along to an orchestra. She’s wearing a bejewelled white costume and resembles an elegant swan. We see and hear a metronome, and Shin speaks in voice-over, “When I lost all meaning in my life…” It then cuts to a series of flashbacks from difficult moments in her life: trying to walk while blind, a car accident, and stage lights falling onto the stage. Shin continues her narration, “He appeared before me and helped me to stand up again.” As she speaks, we see the silhouette of an angel and a single feather falling. There are more intercuts of the orchestra playing, Shin Hye-sun dancing, and L watching her with a smile. The teaser ends with a close-up on Shin Hye-sun as we hear her voice again, “Dan, Only Love.”
KBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama Dan, Only Love is currently set to air next month in May, after Doctor Prisoner concludes its run.
