tvN’s new fantasy romance drama “About Time” has released a highlight reel.
At the beginning of the video, Choi Michaela walks across a bridge where an accident seems to have taken place. She says, “I can see the remaining lifespan of people.” The scene shifts to show Lee Do Ha and Choi Michaela confronting each other seriously. When Lee Do Ha asks her if she likes him, she replies, “I need you.”
The clip then shows how Choi Michaela and Lee Do Ha first met. When Lee Do Ha’s car surprises Choi Michaela, they become engaged in a hilarious argument. Lee Do Ha snaps, “Isn’t it common sense for people to avoid moving cars?” to which Choi Michaela retorts, “Isn’t it common sense for cars to protect people? Do you think the Earth revolves around you?”
It is soon revealed that Choi Michaela is a musical actress who is yet to be successful. After she randomly kisses Lee Do Ha in a theater, a female voice is heard saying, “He’s your destined guy. Win him over no matter what it takes!” This is followed by hilarious scenes where Choi Michaela follows Lee Do Ha everywhere to his frustration.
Although Lee Do Ha quickly falls for the unique charms of Choi Michaela, he already has a fiancée, Bae Soo Bong (Im Se Mi). After finding out about their relationship, she says calmly to Choi Michaela, “I’ll give you anything that’s better, more expensive, and more rare. Don’t try to shake up Lee Do Ha.”
The drama takes another turn when the number 101 days shows up on Choi Michaela’s arm, implying that she only has those days left to live. Lee Do Ha, meanwhile, falls deeply in love with her and says, “You’ve got me. No matter what I do, Choi Michaela is all I can see.” As they dance together, Choi Michaela smiles and says, “So this is what being happy feels like.”
The clip also hints at a second couple by showing a short scene where Choi Michaela’s best friend and younger brother wake up screaming after they find out that they’ve shared a bed. The highlight reel concludes with a series of funny bloopers.
“About Time” premieres on May 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
