Reunited Worlds makes one last promo push with summery new posters
It’s really very late for Reunited Worlds to be releasing promo posters (you premiere tomorrow!), but at least they are pretty to look at and evocative of a light, breezy summer mood.
The four posters all bear the same tagline: “Blinding like the sunlight, this summer’s miracle.” That’s because the “heart-pinching fantasy rom-com” centers around Yeo Jin-gu (Circle) playing a young man who supposedly dies at the age of 19, only to return 12 years later looking exactly as he did while his friends have continued to age into 31-year-old adults. Lee Yeon-hee (Hwajeong) plays his childhood friend and first love, while Ahn Jae-hyun (Cinderella and the Four Knights) will be our hero’s rival as the chef who falls in love with her.
I love this kind of setup, which combines several favorite tropes: a fantasy element that bends/shifts/plays with time, a mystery element regarding how it came to happen, and, of course, the reunited lovers. There’s also a hint of the noona romance, even if it’s not a straight noona setup since they were the same age as children; still, the newfound age gap ought to be an interesting complicator in the setup.
Coming from PD Baek Soo-chan of Girl Who Sees Smells and Beautiful Gong Shim, I expect a bright sense of humor to run throughout the show; I loved the quirky, oddball comedy in both shows, and particularly enjoyed that the latter embraced a feel-good spirit without relying on too much angst or jerky plot twists. Here’s to hoping Reunited Worlds captures that same uplifting tone! I mean, I’m going to watch it regardless, because Yeo Jin-gu (I’m still not over Circle!), but I would like for it to be a pleasant experience in any case.
Reunited Worlds is SBS’s newest Wednesday-Thursday drama, taking up the Suspicious Partner timeslot starting tomorrow.
