Yeo Jin-gu dies and comes back to life in Reunited World’s first teaser
The sunlit first teaser for SBS’s fantasy romance drama Reunited Worlds has been revealed. It shows the happy high school days of two childhood friends, played by Yeo Jin-gu (Circle) and IOI’s Jung Chae-yeon (Drinking Solo), until a day he dies in a car accident. Reunited Worlds is a love story set twelve years later when the girl is a 31-year-old woman and the 19-year-old boy miraculously comes back to life.
The teaser begins with the two students riding a bicycle together, looking carefree and happy. They have an easy, comfortable friendship, until Yeo Jin-gu’s voiceover cuts in: “That summer, I died. I thought it was a short sleep, but twelve years had passed.”
He’s hit by a car, and then as a funeral procession is shown, Jung Chae-yeon wails, “Come back alive and tell me it’s not true!” Then her young self transitions to her adult self, played by Lee Yeon-hee (Hwajeong), and the copy reads: “As bright as the sun, this summer’s miracle.” Yeo Jin-gu wakes from what seems to be a short nap on a sunny rooftop and says, “It was a miracle. That summer’s mysterious story, Reunited Worlds.”
More stills have also been released showing Jung Chae-yeon in her school uniform and the third party in the main love story, Ahn Jae-hyun (Cinderella and the Four Knights), who plays a chef-restaurateur. He’s boss to the 31-year-old Lee Yeon-hee, the most bottom-rung worker in his kitchen, and falls in love with her. He is described as a cool, suave, and kind character, and confesses straightaway when he realizes he’s lost his heart to his kitchen assistant. It looks like this drama is shaping up to be something both heartbreaking and magical.
Wednesday-Thursday drama Reunited Worlds begins this July 19, following the end of Suspicious Partner.
