A walk among falling flowers in MBC romance melo One Spring Night
I usually associate melos with the fall or winter, but it looks like PD Ahn Pan-seok has another season in mind for his newest romance drama. This time around, PD Ahn and writer Kim Eun, who collaborated on last year’s Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food, has moved to MBC for their upcoming drama One Spring Night. The newest teaser that’s been released, featuring Han Ji-min (The Light in Your Eyes), has a very similar vibe to the writer-director duo’s last outing, so it’ll be interesting to see what they bring new to the table with One Spring Night.
The teaser itself is quite short, if really atmospheric: Han Ji-min walks down a street lined with trees in full bloom, as Jung Hae-in, another Pretty Noona alum, says offscreen, “I won’t expect anything. So, please just let me see you.” Upon closer look, we see Han Ji-min with tears in her eyes as she looks up at the falling flower petals. One of the things I loved the most about Pretty Noona was the amazing soundtrack, and judging by this teaser, I’m hoping that remains the case in One Spring Night.
The synopsis of the drama is painfully brief and simple: The melo will follow the realistic romance between a solitary librarian and her pharmacist suitor. I’m desperately hoping that “realistic” doesn’t mean insane, elitist mothers, because I’ve had just about enough of that with Pretty Noona. The best part of that show was in the early episodes when the two leads were falling in love and getting to know each other, and if One Spring Night is more like that first half of Pretty Noona, I will be one happy camper.
One Spring Night will premiere on May 22 and will air on MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday slot.
