Kim Hye-yoon rebels against her storyline in Extraordinary You
Coming-of-age teen drama Extraordinary You (originally known as A Day Found by Chance) has released a hilarious new teaser. Kim Hye-yoon (SKY Castle) plays the protagonist, an ordinary high school student until incredible things start happening to her as we see in the teaser. She suddenly has gaps in her memory, sees things that shouldn’t exist in reality including her own future, and her own personality changes in unexpected ways.
It all begins making sense when she receives the hard-to-believe explanation that she’s in a comic book. But what comic book is complete without the requisite group of pretty flower boys? So we have Lee Jae-wook (Search: WWW) playing her fiance, Kim Ro-woon playing a mystery influence on Kim Hye-yoon, and Jung Gun-joo (Drama Special: The Tuna and the Dolphin), Kim Young-dae (Item) and Lee Tae-ri (Search: WWW) making up the rest of the A4 gang.
After she finds out that she’s not even the main character of the comic book, she decides to rebel against the story line that was written out for her. In the teaser, we have flashes of Kim Hye-yoon’s character, Eun Dan-ho, putting her head on a fellow classmate’s shoulder as a voiceover says: “For me, it’s the first time I’ve met a girl like this.”
Various other scenes of school drama unfold including one where she looks like she’s given up on a track field, but then is back again cleaning her classroom with friends. She asks what someone would do if he could see the future, and the boy replies that what can be seen may not be everything in the big picture. This is followed by scenes of conflict like fighting and doctor’s office visits. But the teaser ends on a positive note because with the last statement of the teaser, she says: “I’m me, Eun Dan-ho. I am real.”
MBC Wednesday-Thursday miniseries Extraordinary You, co-written by Song Ha-young and In Ji-hye and directed by Kim Sang-hyub, will begin airing on October 2.
