Romance develops for Park Hae-jin, Jo Boa in new teaser for Forest
A new video teaser has been released for KBS’s upcoming romance Forest, featuring its lead actors Park Hae-jin (Man to Man) and Jo Boa (My Strange Hero).
The story is described as a healing romance with Park Hae-jin playing Kang San-hyuk. He’s a man who seems to have it all, but he hides a painful past and suffered memory loss as a child. Due to circumstances that are not yet known, he finds himself forced to cohabitate with Jo Boa, who plays a surgeon named Jung Young-jae. She carries emotional baggage from her past as well and the two characters form a bond over their respective miseries. As they comfort and encourage one another, their relationship grows and they create in each other a safe space to breathe.
The newly released teaser highlights the drama’s title and setting – a mysterious forest which holds the key to unlocking the secrets in the characters’ pasts.
It starts with close-ups of Jo Boa and Park Hae-jin captioned by the words, “Fate has come, again.” In voice-over, Jo explains: “There’s a patient at the hospital that I keep thinking about. I think it’s sympathy as a fellow sufferer.” As she speaks, there is a sequence of shots showing Jo riding a bicycle, Park Hae-jin looking up at the sky, Park doubled over in pain and crying out, someone in a car underwater, and Jo distraught at the hospital. We see someone holding her and she cries, “Stop it, please just stop.”
Cut to Jo Boa leaning over Park Hae-jin when he suddenly embraces her and says, “There’s no one who dies because of you. You make people live.” As he speaks, we see Jo basking in the sunlight under the forest canopy and a wider shot reveals Park watching her. Jo confesses, “I started to become curious about Kang San-hyuk and everything about him.” As she speaks, we see another sequence of shots: Jo checking Park’s heartbeat, the two of them napping on chairs in the forest, the two riding bicycles together, and a charged moment when they lock hands while cleaning up a spilled drink. Curiously, the teaser ends with a shot of Jo Boa underwater.
Writing for the drama is Lee Sun-young and directing will be helmed by PD Oh Jong-rok (Twelve Men in a Year, Piano).
KBS’s upcoming Forest is currently set to premiere in just a few weeks, on January 29, and will be airing Wednesdays and Thursdays.
