Lee Do Hyun And Kim Ha Neul Cross Paths Under Unusual Circumstances In “18 Again”
“18 Again” will tell the story of a husband on the verge of divorce who finds himself back in his body when he was at the prime of his life 18 years ago. Yoon Sang Hyun plays husband Hong Dae Young, who changes his name to Go Woo Young (played by Lee Do Hyun) when he becomes 18 years old [by Korean reckoning] again. Meanwhile, Kim Ha Neul plays his wife Jung Da Jung, who joins the workforce as an anchorwoman later on in life after raising their 18-year-old twins.
The new stills show Hong Dae Young running into Jung Da Jung for the first time after transforming into Go Woo Young. Although it appears that Jung Da Jung has no idea who he is, she does seem to stare at him intently after he exits the bus. Go Woo Young has a bright smile on his face inside the bus but once he’s outside, the smile drops and he seems to take a deep breath like he’s bracing himself for something.
The production staff of “18 Again” stated, “Jung Da Jung has no idea that Go Woo Young is actually her husband Hong Dae Young, and the pair are set to form a close bond as Go Woo Young stays close to her. Jung Da Jung and Hong Dae Young were on the verge of divorce, so it will be interesting for viewers to see how that will be affected by this change.”
“18 Again” is based on the American film “17 Again” and will be the follow-up drama to “The Good Detective.” The drama will premiere on September 7 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
