Nam Joo Hyuk Fails To Recognize Kim Hye Ja On “Radiant”
“Radiant” is about a 25-year-old woman named Kim Hye Ja (played by Kim Hye Ja and Han Ji Min) who loses all her time and becomes 70 years old. Through her transformation, she learns how precious time is, even the mundane moments.
In the revealed photos, Kim Hye Ja runs into a spot of trouble as Rice Grain the puppy doesn’t recognize her in front of Nam Joo Hyuk’s house. Nam Joo Hyuk’s cold expression stands out, as he becomes suspicious of the unfamiliar grandmother whom he keeps bumping into in his neighborhood. In another set of photos, Kim Hye Ja waits for Nam Joo Hyuk, who shows affection for the puppy. She also follows him as he strides purposefully away from her.
Previously, Kim Hye Ja and Lee Joon Ha (played by Nam Joo Hyuk) were connected once more thanks to Rice Grain, who ran away and was found in Lee Joon Ha’s home. Though Kim Hye Ja was a bit disappointed that Lee Joon Ha was unable to recognize her, she was also sad that her beloved pet did not recognize her.
The production staff stated, “The reunion of Kim Hye Ja, who has affectionate and heart-fluttering memories of him, and Lee Joon Ha, who doesn’t recognize the older version of her, conveys a special kind of fun. Kim Hye Ja and Nam Joo Hyuk have a kind of synergy that leaps across time. They will express laughter and touching emotions through their chemistry. Please look forward to their stories.”
“Radiant” airs every Monday and Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. KST.
