Han Ji-hyun and Bae In-hyuk dazzle in blue in SBS’s Cheer Up
A new video teaser has dropped for SBS’s upcoming campus drama Cheer Up, giving us our first look at our underdog story. Centered around a college cheering squad with a long history that’s now in danger of being disbanded, the drama mixes rom-com with a dash of mysterious intrigue to keep us on our toes.
Han Ji-hyun (Penthouse 3) plays the role of bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Do Hae-yi, a fresh new recruit on the cheerleading team. Here, she meets cheer captain Bae In-hyuk (Why Her?), who plays the idealistic and principled Park Jung-woo.
The squad’s vice-captain, Tae Cho-hee, is played by Jang Gyu-ri (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay), and fellow new recruits Jin Sun-ho and Joo Sun-ja are played by Kim Hyun-jin (Can You Deliver Time?) and Lee Eun-saem (All of Us Are Dead), respectively.
The short video teaser opens with our heroine Hae-yi, who quickly ties her hair and adjusts her shirt before jumping into training and practicing cheers. There’s always time, of course, for some shared moments with Captain Jung-woo. But we don’t know (yet) who Sun-ho is gazing at through the window while he stands outside in the rain. In the intermittent text screens, we read: “The most radiant and heart-fluttering story of the season.” The video then closes with our cheerleading team performing their best on the stage.
Directed by PD Han Tae-sub (Stove League) with writing by Cha Hae-won (VIP), Cheer Up premieres October 3 in the Monday-Tuesday slot.
