Choo Young-woo ventures Once Upon a Small Town with Joy and Baek Sung-chul
The first teaser has been released for KakaoTV’s rom-com, Once Upon a Small Town (previously Unexpected Country Diary), featuring our three leads: Joy (The One and Only), Choo Young-woo (School 2021), and Baek Sung-chul (Inspector Koo).
Based on a popular web novel, the story follows Choo Young-woo’s character, Han Ji-yul, as he’s uprooted from his city home and shuttled off to take care of his grandfather’s veterinary clinic in the countryside. Although adjusting to life in the village is a little challenging for our urbanite, police officer Ahn Ja-young – played by Joy – is always happy to help. Naturally, though, this arouses the jealousy of Baek Sung-chul, who plays Ja-young’s bestie and local peach farmer, Lee Sang-hyun.
Set against the backdrop of scrumptious peach trees and the surrounding farm lands, the new video teaser introduces us to our main trio as we watch them work the fields and answer questions about themselves in an interview format.
Our resident police officer says she has no time or interest in dating, but it doesn’t stop her from bickering and bantering with Ji-yul along the way. Ji-yul doesn’t hesitate when it comes to love. But the shy Sang-hyun keeps his distance and can only grumble his distaste for our newcomer vet. The teaser then comes to a close with a final shot of our three smiling leads.
With PD Kwon Seok-jang (Bossam: Steal the Fate) at the helm and Baek Eun-kyung writing the scripts, Once Upon a Small Town premieres September 5 and will be available internationally on Netflix.
