“Manhole” is a comedic adventure drama about a man (Kim Jaejoong) who falls into a manhole and slips back in time to prevent the marriage of his first love (UEE). The four main characters have been friends for a long time and the new high school stills are likely referring to a flashback or a prequel story that will take place in the drama.
In the stills, Kim Jaejoong sports a casual t-shirt and jogging pants, hinting at an athletic past. Meanwhile, Baro, Jung Hye Sung, and UEE embrace their characters’ younger selves with old-fashioned school uniforms and awkward hairstyles.
“Manhole,” directed by Park Man Young and written by Lee Jae Gon, is slated to premiere on August 9 at 10 p.m. KST.
