Dancing the Cuban night away for Boyfriend
Another gorgeous teaser from the Boyfriend team has been released, featuring our two leads, Song Hye-gyo (Descended From the Sun) and Park Bo-gum (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds), bonding over the beautiful beachside and beer. We also get a look at their lives outside their magical memories in Cuba.
Boyfriend is an upcoming tvN drama about two people who fall in love while they’re both on a trip abroad. Park Bo-gum plays a happy-go-lucky carefree man, whereas Song Hye-gyo plays an upper-crust woman who feels trapped in a life she doesn’t fully control.
In the video, the copy reads, “In a strange land,” as Song Hye-gyo asks, “Have you been to Malecon Beach?” Just about when she begins to say how the night view photo makes her feel, Park Bo-gum’s voice interjects that a Malecon Beach sunset isn’t complete without this music, as he hands her his phone with some earphones.
She then asks him for some money, and smiling, he asks how much. She replies, “Just the amount for one beer,” and we see them enjoying some beers by the skyline. Together they walk barefoot through the historic city of Havana, and together, they laugh and dance the night away.
Meanwhile, the voiceovers tell us a little bit more about Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-gyo’s lives. Park’s foray into Cuba is part of his month-long travel journey to end his twenties with a happy memory. In contrast to Park Bo-gum’s free soul, Song is shown with her fiance, played by Jang Seung-jo (Familiar Wife), who cynically asks if their lives were ever their own to live.
Back in Korea, when Park and Song meet again, he tells her that he was worried about her, but she replies that it’s okay because they have nothing to hide.
I have to admit that the teaser almost felt like a commercial for Cuba because the scenery clearly stole the show. I’m looking forward to this, if only to drool over more Cuban sights. Wednesday-Thursday drama Boyfriend will air on tvN starting November 28.
