Song Kang, Park In-hwan take the chance to fly in Navillera
Ballet drama Navillera (formerly Like a Butterfly), featuring Song Kang (Sweet Home) and Park In-hwan (Brilliant Heritage), has released two versions of the same teaser. Park In-hwan plays a 70-year-old man that is just beginning ballet, and Song Kang plays a 23-year-old ballerino who is hesitating at the cusp of his dream.
Based on a highly popular webtoon by the same name (authors: Hun, Ji-min), Navillera tells the story of how an elderly retired mailman decides to finally gather courage and pursue the small dream he’s always kept hidden throughout his life: ballet. When he meets Song Kang’s character, a precociously talented ballerino who has started to stray from his craft and calling, they become an odd older student-younger mentor pair.
In the teaser narrated by Park In-hwan, Song Kang extends his arms as Park watches from behind. The music conveys hope, wistfulness and a complex desperation. Park In-hwan admires Song Kang’s graceful turn. Song Kang continues to wave his arms, and Park In-hwan thinks: “For everyone, there’s at least one moment in their life when they’re given a chance to fly.” In the last scene, they’re shown together with Park In-hwan following Song Kang’s movements.
Song Kang’s teaser is almost the exact same as Park In-hwan’s. The major difference is the change in music. The background melody is much simpler, and it almost sounds more playful and innocent. Song Kang says the same narration, and in the last scene, he and Park In-hwan raise their arms together and join hands.
Directed by Han Dong-hwa (Miss Lee) and written by Lee Eun-mi (Tunnel), tvN’s Monday-Tuesday drama Navillera will begin airing on March 22.
