Watch: Fate Plays Tricks With Lee Do Hyun, Go Min Si, Lee Sang Yi, And Geum Sae Rok In “Youth Of May” Highlight Video
KBS’s upcoming drama “Youth of May” released a four-minute highlight teaser ahead of its premiere!
“Youth of May” is a melodrama about the romance between Hwang Hee Tae (Lee Do Hyun) and Kim Myung Hee (Go Min Si) set against the turbulent background of May 1980, a historically significant time period in South Korea. Lee Sang Yi and Geum Sae Rok co-star as Lee Soo Chan and Lee Soo Ryun, siblings from a wealthy family background who have different goals in life.
The highlight teaser begins with Lee Soo Chan and Kim Myung Hee’s surprise reunion. They’re thrilled to see each other, and he sweetly tells her to contact him if she needs anything.
The clip shows Kim Myung Hee being accepted to a university in Germany. However, she isn’t able to go because she’s too busy taking care of her family. She can’t even afford a plane ticket, and that’s when her friend Lee Soo Ryun comes up with a brilliant idea. If Kim Myung Hee goes on a blind date on behalf of her, she’ll buy the plane ticket for her.
That’s how Hwang Hee Tae ends up mistaking Kim Myung Hee as Lee Soo Ryun, and their love story is tugged in unpredictable directions by fate itself. Eventually, the truth comes out, but Hwang Hee Tae still chases after Kim Myung Hee. Kim Myung Hee lists various reasons why he shouldn’t be with her, such as being from a poor family and not being able to graduate high school. In response, Hwang Hee Tae names a “bad” quality about him, saying, “I’m an illegitimate child. Is that wrong?”
Their love story blossoms with sweetness, and Hwang Hee Tae even goes to her house to introduce himself to her family. Just when their relationship is becoming serious, his father Hwang Ki Nam (Oh Man Seok) gets in the way, and everything starts to go downhill. Lee Soo Chan warns Hwang Hee Tae to not cross the line, and Lee Soo Ryun gets angry at Kim Myung Hee for taking things too far with Hwang Hee Tae.
Will Hwang Hee Tae and Kim Myung Hee get their happily ever after?
