Watch: Song Kang, Park In Hwan, And More Weather Hardships Together In Heartwarming “Navillera” Highlight Teaser
tvN’s upcoming drama “Navillera” released a new highlight video!
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Navillera” is about Shim Duk Chool (Park In Hwan), who begins ballet at the age of 70, and Lee Chae Rok (Song Kang), a 23-year-old ballerino who gets lost while chasing his dreams.
The new highlight video begins with Shim Duk Chool celebrating his 70th birthday with his family. He shares, “I’ve never done something I wanted to do. At least now, I’m trying to do what I want to do.” After getting inspired by a “Swan Lake” performance, he watches Lee Chae Rok practice from afar. When Lee Chae Rok asks, “Why are you staring at me?” Shim Duk Chool replies, “I want to do ballet.”
Lee Chae Rok also seems to be struggling with his own set of problems when he receives a call from his father, who has just been released from prison. Lee Chae Rok comments, “I realized for the first time after seeing ballet. I want to try flying once too.”
Unexpectedly, Lee Chae Rok suddenly becomes Shim Duk Chool’s teacher in ballet. Although Lee Chae Rok bursts out in anger, his coach explains that Shim Duk Chool will be his new manager. Shim Duk Chool begins to carry out his duties by waking Lee Chae Rok up in the morning and taking notes in his notebook. When Lee Chae Rok sees what Shim Duk Chool has written, he asks, “When did I get angry?”
Shim Duk Chool’s wife Choi Hae Nam (Na Moon Hee) also gets suspicious of him, and she begins to feel frustrated since her children don’t want to reciprocate her affection. Shim Duk Chool advises her to do what she wants now, but Choi Hae Nam asks if she should just quit being a mother and his wife. The teaser also introduces Shim Eun Ho (Hong Seung Hee), who continues to persevere in her career despite mistreatment.
Finally, Lee Chae Rok begins to help Shim Duk Chool while asking why he wants to learn ballet at his age. Shim Duk Chool responds, “I also wanted to fly once before I die.” As Lee Chae Rok appears to hit a wall in progress, Shim Duk Chool continues to praise him and believe in him.
“Navillera” premieres on March 22 at 9 p.m. KST. Watch the full highlight video below!
