Retro fun at the world’s hottest attic room in The Best Hit’s new posters
Three new posters for variety-drama The Best Hit are out, and I’m already vibing the nostalgic tone, with Yoon Shi-yoon (Mirror of the Witch) dressed in ’90s fashions to play a star singer. He’s described as free-spirited, and I expect him to disrupt the already dysfunctional lives of young Lee Se-young (Laurel Tree Tailors) and Kim Min-jae (The Lonely Shining Goblin). She’s a failed repeat civil servant exam student while he’s the model student with secret ambitions to become an idol.
The poster above shows all the younger cast members including Dong Hyun-bae (The Prison, Part-time Spy), Astro’s Cha Eun-woo (My Brilliant Life), and Cosmic Girls’s Bona. A tornado swirls in the back as Yoon Shi-yoon flies toward camera like a bird, but only one guy (Dong Hyun-bae) sees his leap. Kim Min-jae is too busy staring adoringly at Lee Se-young, while Cha Eun-woo and Bona look irritated off in the corner. The copy says, “In the hottest attic room beneath the sky, a coming-of-age drama of youths with struggling lives.” Other than the three main leads, the rest are relative rookies at acting, although they are more established as idols with experience in variety, so maybe the hybrid format will give them more confidence in their performance.
In a separate but equally important parallel story arc, Cha Tae-hyun (The Producers) and Yoon Son-ha (Six Flying Dragons) have a strange relationship, which has a one-sided romantic element on Cha’s part. They co-parent Kim Min-jae, who accepts this nontraditional family situation as his norm.
The second poster shows the older cast members, Cha Tae-hyun, Yoon Son-ha, and Hong Kyung-min (Because I Love You), as well as Yoon Shi-yoon enjoying a warm sunny day with the tornado far off in the background, the faded tint giving off a retro atmosphere. The poster says, “The star who disappeared 24 years ago returns as the neighborhood bum.” Hmm, with that and the description of a “similar-age” immature father and mature son, I’m thinking Yoon Shi-yoon may be involved in Kim Min-jae’s birth secret.
The last poster has our four main characters in deep thought, all looking off in different directions. The line at the top reads, “In the hottest attic room beneath the sky, a bittersweet romantic comedy,” while the pink text under the title says, “Twenty. Their first love. Forty. His last love.”
