Watch: ASTRO’s Moonbin, SF9’s Hwiyoung, And More Navigate Romance In Teaser For “The Mermaid Prince” Prequel
“The Mermaid Prince: The Beginning” has unveiled a teaser ahead of the web drama’s premiere!
As a prequel to “The Mermaid Prince,” the new web drama will take viewers back in time to the high school days of Woo Hyuk (ASTRO’s Moonbin) in order to uncover a secret. As opposed to the mysterious, dreamy Woo Hyuk that viewers saw in the original “The Mermaid Prince,” Moonbin will be playing a far more mischievous teenage version of the character in the upcoming prequel.
With its high school setting, the drama will also portray an entirely different kind of romance from that of the original series. “The Mermaid Prince: The Beginning” will tell the love story that ensues when Jo Ara (Chae Won Bin), a high school student who decides to give up on dating because she doesn’t believe in love, ends up meeting Woo Hyuk.
The teaser begins as Jung Bo Min’s character says conspiratorially, “He goes around sleeping with other girls.” Another clip previews the chemistry between SF9’s Hwiyoung’s and Yoo Na Gyeol’s characters as Hwiyoung holds his arms wide and says, “Come here, then I won’t date you.” Yoo Na Gyeol responds by smacking his head playfully. In contrast, Moon Sang Min says to someone in frustration, “Just date! Yoon Gun said he’d never seen something like that before.”
In the next clip, Yoo Na Gyeol stands defiantly in front of Moonbin’s character as he buttons his shirt. He stares her down as he confronts her, asking, “Do you not see that we’re changing clothes?” In the following clip, when asked if there’s someone she likes, the scene switches to Yoo Na Gyeol facing someone as she tells them, “After that, I think I’ve come to like you.”
The teaser then introduces the cast, including shots of Moonbin and Hwiyoung in the swimming pool, followed by Yoo Na Gyeol, Moon Sang Bin, Jung Bo Min, Yun Seo Bin, and Chae Won Bin. Next, Moon Sang Min leans closer to Jung Bo Min as if he is going to kiss her. Chae Won Bin’s character is then seen tearfully embracing Hwiyoung as she says, “You made me this way.” The teaser comes to an end as Moonbin, Chae Won Bin, Jung Bo Min, and Moon Sang Min walk side by side, smiling and laughing. Finally, Moonbin sighs and throws his head down on his crossed arms.
