Seo Ji-hye tries to deny her future with Yoon Kye-sang in new promos for Kiss Sixth Sense
In less than a week we’ll be treated to Yoon Kye-sang (Crime Puzzle), Seo Ji-hye (Dr. Brain), and Kim Ji-suk (Monthly Magazine Home) gracing our screens, and in the lead-up, new promos have been released for Disney+’s fantasy Kiss Sixth Sense.
Yoon Kye-sang stars as a man with extra-heightened senses, making him overly sensitive to everything he sees, hears, smells, tastes, and touches. Enter Seo Ji-hye, who can read someone’s future if they touch her lips. Although in different ways, the two have suffered from having their abilities affect their relationships with others. And this seems to have held true when Seo was dating ex-boyfriend Kim Ji-suk as well. Now she’s poised to possibly, maybe get into a relationship with Yoon. But the situation gets complicated when Kim suddenly appears, wanting to be a part of Seo’s life again.
The newly released teaser begins with Yoon Kye-sang reprimanding his staff for treating their work like a college group project. Seo Ji-hye curses to herself that Yoon is a crazy jerk. But we then get dramaland’s quintessential accidental kiss, leading into the next sequence. Glimpses of Seo Ji-hye’s future visions are mixed in with scenes from the past and the present, and we’re introduced to our three actors: Yoon Kye-sang, Seo Ji-hye, and Kim Ji-suk.
Returning to Yoon Kye-sang in another meeting, he tells the team to just resign if they’re not going to do better. Hwang Bora (Dal-li and Gamjatang) sadly admits that Yoon still has the best specs at their company and another woman agrees that he’d be perfect if he wasn’t so scary. When Yoon asks Seo Ji-hye if she’s sure about her ad idea, Seo explains to Hwang afterwards, “It doesn’t matter what I do because that jerk will never be happy with it anyway. I’ll get in less trouble if I lower his expectations with something decent first and then elevate it to something better after.” Seo still curses Yoon, though, when he lets her trip and fall.
A teary Hwang Bora questions how Seo Ji-hye knew what would happen and is reminded that she can read the future. In the appearing text screen and in voice-over, Seo explains, “I have a sixth sense. When my lips touch someone else’s body, I can see their future.” In disbelief over the vision of herself and Yoon, Seo confides in Kim Ga-eun (On the Verge of Insanity), who is shocked but amused that Seo has slept and/or will sleep with Yoon Kye-sang.
Meanwhile Lee Joo-yeon (Hyena) worries over a sick Yoon Kye-sang. “What happened? Who was it this time? That’s why you’re sick, right? Tell me who it was this time! Do you think I don’t know? You were like this when we kissed that time too!” Back at work, Yoon nitpicks at the wobbly set and bad smells that only he can sense. He’s right about the set, though, and ultimately injures himself while trying to save Seo Ji-hye.
Seo Ji-hye starts to accept that her vision is coming true and the next text screen reads: “I’m going to date my jerk boss?” Going back to denial mode, Seo tries to convince herself that it’s all just a coincidence. Kim Ga-eun strikes her down, “Just sleep with him. Just do it. Was there ever a time when your vision didn’t come true? Don’t you remember what happened before? Don’t you remember how you tried to re-see the future and ended up suffering because of it?”
This brings us to Kim Ji-suk, who has been hired by Yoon Kye-sang’s company and tries to get back into Seo Ji-hye’s good graces. But Seo is conflicted about their past: “At that time in my life, I wanted to avoid my future and tried to run away. Because the future I see is not always good. I live in the present, but my memories fill me with fear.”
In the final sequence, the intermittent text screens read: “Risky and passionate extrasensory romance,” “Man with five highly-developed senses,” “Woman who sees the future,” and “The first love who returned.” Yoon Kye-sang wonders if he’s suddenly cured because his senses seem to have calmed down, but he’s perplexed by Seo Ji-hye’s recent behavior as well. While Kim Ji-suk tries in vain to woo Seo, she’s more concerned about her maybe future with Yoon. She decides she needs to re-confirm what she saw and the video closes on her and Yoon’s kiss.
Premiering next week on May 25, Disney+’s Kiss Sixth Sense was written by Jeon Yuri (Radio Romance) with PD Nam Ki-hoon (Oh My Baby, Beauty Inside) behind the camera.
