UEE and Jaejoong cozy up under the sun in new Manhole stills
UEE (Night Light) gazes adoringly at Jaejoong (Spy) in the new stills for their upcoming fantasy rom-com Manhole. He plays a recently unemployed layabout who falls into a manhole by accident, only to discover that it’s a portal to the past. In the present, after learning that his longtime crush and best friend (played by UEE) is about to get married, he decides to jump back into the manhole to rectify the past and declare his love for her.
But of course things don’t go that smoothly, especially since Jaejoong can’t control when in the past he lands. A whole series of unintentional changes ensue in the present due to the butterfly effect of his mere presence in the past, and he needs to keep going back to patch things up as he causes more mishaps.
These new stills show a scene from the past where UEE has gone to visit Jaejoong by the beach, where he’s working at a summer part-time job. The atmosphere is sweet and romantic as she helps him put on sunscreen so he won’t burn in the hot sun. Jaejoong looks like he’s been hit hard by Cupid’s arrow as she concentrates on covering his whole face.
It looks so cute already! I was already sold after the pen-pineapple-apple-pen teaser, but Jaejoong’s apparent puppy dog devotion just increases my excitement. Wednesday-Thursday time-slip adventure drama Manhole begins airing August 9 on KBS.
