Throwing away the old and bringing in the new in A Moment at Eighteen

Man, Kim Hyang-gi (Innocent Witness) is just one of those actors who has chemistry with all of her co-stars, notwithstanding her co-stars’ acting experience. And it doesn’t hurt that she has such an engaging screen presence, which makes her so natural and easy to watch. JTBC’s A Moment at Eighteen, a youth drama starring Kim Hyang-gi and former Wanna One member Ong Sung-woo, has released its second teaser recently, showing the two share a sweet moment on a school field.

The clip, which looks like a snippet of a scene we can expect to see in the drama once it airs, starts with Kim Hyang-gi intensely concentrating while she fiddles with Ong Sung-woo’s uniform. Specifically, she’s cutting off his sewn-in, old-fashioned name badge. She addresses him as “hey, transfer” and scoffs at his nickname, “ghost.” She asks whether he doesn’t feel upset that he’s living without any “presence,” which explains his nickname. Think, colorless, or a wallflower to the extreme.

Kim Hyang-gi succeeds in separating his name badge from his school cardigan, and throws it away. True to his nickname, Ong Sung-woo remains wordless throughout the entire interaction, though he silently watches Kim Hyang-gi with a thoughtful look in his eyes, especially when she smilingly turns back round to him in charming slo-mo. The camera zooms in to see that he has a new name tag, in what I assume is Kim Hyang-gi’s handwriting. Adorable. The teaser ends as Ong Sung-woo finally speaks, though it’s offscreen: “In any case, this moment. In any case, eighteen.”

JTBC’s A Moment at Eighteen will premiere on July 22 and air on Mondays and Tuesdays.

As previously written Ong Seongwu's character is a lonely transfer student with difficulty in expressing his emotions but has a cute charm beneath it. So I guess we have to wait for more teasers before we can fully conclude if his acting is he is stiff.

So far I'm liking the way he is portraying his character.

She was so good in Queen's Classroom - no way I'm not tuning to see her as a student again.

He's such a goofball and witty guy in real life. So he gotta be a fantastic actor to make me believe he is "ghost" and "colourless"

This is giving me strong My ID is Gangnam Beauty for some reason (with maybe a smidge of Andante?). Both of those things make me very happy, so I'm strongly interested in watching this one.

I always feel like I'm a bit too old for youth drama but they bait me with Kim Hyang Gi so, yes I'll be watching it, obviously. hahaha
A good way to wait for AWTG3

I watched Innocent Witness last night (which was brilliant, by the way), and now I'm raring to see more of Kim Hyang-gi!
