Teachers Seo Hyun-jin, Ra Mi-ran prep for school in new Black Dog teaser
Another video teaser has been released for tvN’s upcoming drama Black Dog featuring the main quartet of the drama: Seo Hyun-jin (Beauty Inside), Ra Mi-ran (Melting Me Softly), Ha Joon (Arthdal Chronicles), and Lee Chang-hoon (One Spring Night).
The drama takes place at a private high school, delving deeply into the world of teachers and highlighting the challenge of chasing dreams within a competitive field while also dealing with the reality that life can be harsh and unyielding. At the center of this story is Seo Hyun-jin, who plays a rookie teacher and temporary hire at the private high school. She joins the faculty team headed by veteran teacher Ra Mi-ran. Ra quickly becomes a much-needed support for Seo along with with fellow teachers Ha Joon and Lee Chang-hoon.
The new teaser is a preview of the first episodes and introduces the four main characters on Ra Mi-ran’s team. It starts with the group attending a college admissions seminar where Ra Mi-ran gives a talk about strategies and tips. The caption introduces her as “Park Sung-soon / Head of Faculty, Guidance Counseling.” Cut to a flustered Lee Chang-hoon who rants, “I’m going crazy. Who’s going to defend the guidance counseling team?” But he immediately softens when Seo hesitantly admits, “I…want to eat lunch with you” and he quickly agrees, “Oh, okay.” Text appears on the screen explaining that he is “Bae Myung-soo / Second-in-command, Guidance Counseling.” We then switch to Ha Joon who walks by Seo Hyun-jin teaching in her classroom and he gives a small smile. The scene is captioned with, “Do Yeon-woo / Third in rank, Guidance Counseling.” In voice-over, we hear him say, “It’s because I think that teachers should find joy in teaching students rather than spend time politicking.”
Cut to Seo Hyun-jin struggling to fit in as a new teacher and the text introduces her character as “Go Haneul / New recruit, Guidance Counseling.” She asks, “Am I supposed to just stay calm and not do anything, even when they’re like this?” Ha Joon responds, “Is this your way of doing things?” A sequence of scenes emphasizes Seo Hyun-jin’s difficulty: a teacher in pink asking Seo if she doesn’t have any friends, Ra Mi-ran taking over Seo’s phone call, and an unseen voice scolding Seo that, “Schools are corporate societies as well; you’re new and a temporary hire.” Fed up, Ha Joon questions her: “Can’t you stand up for yourself? Are you a pushover?” Seo responds angrily, “Was school always a place like this?” We’re back in the faculty office, where Lee Chang-hoon asks Ha Joon and Ra Mi-ran if they’re both taking Seo Hyun-jin’s side. They deny it with “No” and “Are you crazy?” but one of them ends up offering an invitation to Seo, “Do you want to come with us?” The teaser then comes to an end with the four teachers sharing drinks at a restaurant and looking out into the night together.
tvN drama Black Dog premieres in just over a week on December 16 and will be taking over the Monday-Tuesday timeslot after Catch the Ghost.
