Reunited friends and reunited loves for Reunited Worlds
I’m looking forward to the dreamy atmosphere of this drama, if the teasers and posters are anything to go by. Fantasy romance drama Reunited Worlds released a second teaser featuring a dreamlike reunion between our leads Yeo Jin-gu (Circle) and Lee Yeon-hee (Hwajeong), who were best friends and first loves, tragically separated by death.
That’s what Lee Yeon-hee’s character (Jung-won) grows up believing, anyway—that Yeo Jin-gu’s character (Hae-sung) died in a car accident when they were 19. Until one day Hae-sung reappears in her life, not having aged a day in twelve years. The newest teaser hints at her living with guilt after his accident, for thinking that he somehow died because of her. As scenes of Hae-sung in high school and Jung-won in the present day flash by, Hae-sung says in voiceover, “It’s not your fault. Jung-won, I didn’t die because of you!”
She tends to his badly wounded body in shock, and then visits his ashes and calls out his name to the sky. In the halls of their high school, younger Jung-won (played by Jung Chae-yeon, Drinking Solo) calls out to him too, and then their moments together are intercut: Younger Jung-won fixes his hair and wipes the sweat from his temple, and he’s startled by her touch. In the present, it’s Hae-sung who reaches out to wipe a tear from adult Jung-won’s face and goes to hug her. She says in voiceover, “Every single day… I missed you, Hae-sung.”
The new drama from the PD-writer team behind Girl Who Sees Smells and Beautiful Gong Shim will be about how 19-year-old Hae-sung heals everyone he reunites with, including the rest of his high school friends, played by Kim Jin-woo (Remember–Son’s War) and Lee Shi-un (My Sassy Girl), and his two younger siblings, played by Kwak Dong-yeon (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) and Kim Ga-eun (Jackpot).
I’m dying of curiosity to know what the element of magic is in this drama, whether it’s time-travel, reverse-aging with a side of amnesia, or reincarnation—all perfectly plausible scenarios in dramaland. Just don’t kill Yeo Jin-gu too many times, okay? My poor heart can’t take it.
Reunited Worlds premieres next Wednesday, July 19 on SBS.
