Park Eun-bin goes from fangirl to friend in Castaway Diva
A cute new teaser has been released for tvN’s upcoming Castaway Diva, giving us another look at our aspiring singer heroine Park Eun-bin (Extraordinary Attorney Woo) and the sisterly friendship she forges with her role model Kim Hyo-jin (The Good Detective 2).
Opening on the deserted island where our resourceful Seo Mok-ha (Park Eun-bin) was stranded for 15 years, we watch as she begins another day with resolve, turning her island lemons into the best lemonade. We then jump to singer Yoon Ran-joo who thinks back to when she faced a different but also difficult isolation in her life.
Ran-joo explains that, “Just when I was thinking if I should end it all, that’s when you [Mok-ha] appeared.” In the sequence, we see the ardent Mok-ha showing genuine concern and being the best spirited fangirl – and friend – that Ran-joo could have asked for.
Hand-in-hand, the two support each other in chasing their dreams anew and the appearing text screens announce that the top optimist Mok-ha and the top sensitive Ran-joo are taking on the challenge of reversing the gears in their lives.
Celebrating with a pajama party and drinks, Mok-ha encourages Ran-joo to push down on the accelerator by leaning on her and the teaser ends our sisterly pair as they declare their victory over their opponents.
Just say Park Eun-bin and I’m already on board, but it’s hard not to get excited with the added bonus of healing friendships and second chances in the story. Now that promos are in full swing, I expect will soon get our peek at co-stars Chae Jong-hyeop (Unlock the Boss), Cha Hak-yeon (Joseon Attorney), and Kim Joo-hun (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 3) as well.
In their third project together after While You Were Sleeping and Start Up, production is being led by PD Oh Chung-hwan and writer Park Hye-ryun, who are joined this time by writer Eun Yeol. Slated to air in the weekend slot following Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramun, tvN’s Castaway Diva premieres on October 28.
