Park In-hwan pursues his passion for ballet at age 70
New stills and a teaser for Navillera, featuring Park In-hwan (Brilliant Heritage) and Song Kang (Love Alarm 2), have been released. This drama tells the story of a seventy-year-old retiree finally pursuing his dreams of ballet and a twenty-three-year-old ballerino regaining his passion for the art despite life’s vicissitudes.
The teaser begins with Park In-hwan’s seventieth birthday party. After he blows out the candles, a young woman asks him, “What did you wish for?” Na Mun-hee (Dear My Friends), playing his wife, answers for him, “To live without any illnesses and pass away. Isn’t that right, honey?” As she turns to him, his expression says that he might not fully agree.
Park In-hwan’s narration begins: “My days are too long. I don’t know what to do.” He finds a poster of Swan Lake, the ballet. His friend encourages him, “This is the time. Do what you want to do.” Park In-hwan attends the performance, and his eyes alight with joy.
We switch over to Song Kang, where a bunch of no-good ballerinos led by Kim Kwon (Leverage) come up to him and rile him up, “There’s a rumor your father’s getting out of prison. But you don’t have any right to live a good life.” His father calls Song Kang from a payphone, and Song Kang denies his existence.
Narration from Song Kang’s acquaintance sternly reminds him, “The national [ballet] auditions are right around the corner. Get your head together.” He falls and collapses in the dance studio, completely worn out. He sees Park In-hwan watching him from the corner, and frustratedly yells, “Grandpa, what are you doing here? You were here last time too. Why do you keep watching me?” Park In-hwan tells Song Kang, “Because I want to dance ballet.”
tvN Monday-Tuesday drama Navillera will begin airing on March 22.
