Kim Haneul gets a confession of love from Yoon Sang-hyun, Lee Do-hyun in latest 18 Again teaser
A new video teaser has been released for JTBC’s upcoming comedy 18 Again, featuring Kim Haneul (The Wind Blows), Yoon Sang-hyun (Let’s Hold Hands and Watch the Sunset), and Lee Do-hyun (Hotel del Luna).
The story, which is based on the American movie 17 Again, stars Yoon Sang-hyun as an everyday man facing hurdle after hurdle. He’s lost his job, feels ignored by his children, and his wife Kim Haneul is about to ask for a divorce.
As he struggles to find a way out of this mess, fate brings him a miracle. He suddenly wakes up in the body of his 18-year-old self (played by Lee Do-hyun) and he relishes the opportunity to re-live his happier younger days.
The newly released teaser starts with Yoon Sang-hyun and Kim Haneul sitting somberly together at a restaurant. Yoon is contrite as he admits, “Everything is my fault, Da-jung. I’m sorry.” Kim scoffs in disbelief, “I’m just really fed up. Let’s divorce.” Desperate, he grabs her hand and pleads, “I’ll be better to you, Da-jung.” But she remains silent and avoids his gaze.
The melodramatic music swells as the camera pans around, but the sounds warp when we see Lee Do-hyun sitting in front of Kim Haneul now instead of Yoon Sang-hyun. The camera moves back to reveal Lee’s high school uniform and he asks, “Please give me one more chance. I love you, Da-jung.” She firmly replies, “I don’t want to,” but drops her fork in surprise when she sees Lee sitting in front of her.
As Kim Haneul looks around at their surroundings, we see other diners in the restaurant who are shocked to witness a high schooler confessing to an older woman. Lee Do-hyun ignores them and continues to plead with Kim, “Da-jung, you are my first love as well as my last love. I love you.” But Kim is horrified at how this might look and frantically gestures at the other diners, trying to explain that it’s a misunderstanding. All the while, Lee just speaks louder, “I love you. I’m telling you, I love you!” The teaser comes to a close with Kim Haneul’s voice-over, “The story of how my husband went back to his 18-year-old body. 18 Again.”
Directed by PD Ha Byung-hoon (Go Back Spouses, The Sound of Your Heart) and written by a team of writers (Kim Do-yeon, Ahn Eun-bin, and Choi Yi-ryoon), JTBC comedy 18 Again is currently set to premiere on September 7 following Model Detective.
