Watch: Lee Shin Young And Kim So Hye Enjoy A Heart-Fluttering Spring Until A Chilling Incident Hits In “How To Buy A Friend” Teaser
KBS 2TV’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “How to Buy a Friend” has released a new suspenseful teaser!
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “How to Buy a Friend” tells the story of average high school student Park Chan Hong (Lee Shin Young) who starts a “contractual friendship” with the school’s legendary fighter Heo Don Hyuk (Shin Seung Ho) because of a poem he writes.
The teaser begins with Park Chan Hong narrating, “Our spring began,” during a bright and warm spring day as he watches Uhm Se Yoon (Kim So Hye) from the school’s window. Park Chan Hong continues to narrate the poem, “Spring, which doesn’t forgive all that is dying. Spring, which makes what was hidden in the snow appear. Spring, which pushes so that it can burst out,” as the screen shows his heart-fluttering encounters with Uhm Se Yoon. It appears that through their meeting, all of Park Chan Hong’s senses had awakened like spring had come, bringing life to his colorless existence.
However, the mood of the trailer changes completely as someone calls out Park Chan Hong’s name, followed by a clip of a female student falling on the ground with a thud. Park Chan Hong’s eyes are no longer filled with excitement, but are instead filled with dread. The line, “Spring, which says to forget a thing like winter. That cruel spring has begun,” is read, making viewers curious to find out how Park Chan Hong is connected to the fallen student.
The production team shared, “In ‘How to Buy a Friend,’ poems are an important medium through which the characters express their emotions and solve the mystery,” while asking viewers to look forward to this different type of suspenseful youth drama.
“How to Buy a Friend” premieres on April 6 at 10 p.m. KST. Watch the teaser below!
