Lee Je-hoon’s death prophecy and Shin Mina’s morning after in Tomorrow With You
As February (and Valentine’s Day) grows ever closer, more promo tidbits from tvN’s Tomorrow With You are being released, and the beautiful romantic mood is enough to make the rest of us wistful for a time-traveling soulmate of our own. In the latest posters, the featured couple snuggle near a windowsill, hold hands on the streets, and take photos of each other.
The upcoming rom-com drama is centered around the love story between a wealthy investment CEO, played by Lee Je-hoon (Signal), and his unpredictable, spunky wife, played by Shin Mina (Oh My Venus). Of course, this is the formula for any standard K-drama romance, but there’s a twist: Lee Je-hoon can travel through time using the subway (no, not the sandwich). Naturally, this is great for his business and for buying lottery tickets, but he also learns about his impending death.
In the first teaser, Lee Je-hoon witnesses his body being carried on a stretcher while a portending voice tells him the exact time of his death: March 25, 2019, at 9:10 PM. Like any human being, his urge to live trumps everything else, and he uses his knowledge to change the future despite warnings against messing with time.
Ooh, I’m getting chills, and that grim color scheme definitely added to all my Signal vibes. But Shin Mina’s teaser took me right back to laughter and happy thoughts. When he messes with the space-time continuum, Lee Je-hoon complicates his own future and somehow ends up with a wife that his future self said he would marry. But it doesn’t seem like the start is that smooth — at least, that’s my impression of this character teaser:
As memories of her drunken night arise, Shin Mina yells at herself in the mirror for all her embarrassing moments the night before. She’d told her drinking partner things like, “Don’t like me, or you’ll get hurt,” “I’m not a loose woman,” and “I can be very alluring.” Morning-after Shin Mina hopes she didn’t talk about having pretty legs… only to have Flashback Shin Mina declare proudly, “My legs are very pretty, you know.”
These are the first teasers that give us an actual insight into the plot, and it looks like we’ll be in for a cute romance paired with high life-changing stakes, which I’m always down to watch. Friday-Saturday drama Tomorrow With You starts February 3, after The Lonely Shining Goblin ends.
