Watch: Park Ji Hoon And Kang Min Ah Hide Their Wounds In Emotional Teaser For “At A Distance Spring Is Green”
KBS has shared a new preview of its upcoming drama “At a Distance Spring is Green”!
Based on a popular webtoon, “At a Distance Spring is Green” is a drama about the realistic struggles of college students facing the harsh realities of a tough world.
The newly released teaser begins with a famous Charlie Chaplin quote: “Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.”
The clip then introduces Park Ji Hoon’s character Yeo Joon, who always wears a bright smile on his face and is surrounded by hordes of fawning girls wherever he goes. “Friends?” says Yeo Joon, in voice-over. “I’ve got lots of them. Ever since I went on that one orientation trip for new students, I even have my own fan club.”
Meanwhile, Bae In Hyuk’s character Nam Soo Hyun leads a lonely life that contrasts sharply with that of his popular classmate. As the exhausted Nam Soo Hyun rushes back and forth between school and various part-time jobs, he says in voice-over, “Dating? Leisure? A guy like me doesn’t get to do things like that.”
Finally, Kang Min Ah’s hard-working character Kim So Bin struggles to reconcile her dreams with her reality. As she toils away at the library, she laments in voice-over, “The only thing I was confident in was my work ethic, but now I’m no longer able to rely on that alone.”
Although Yeo Joon seems to have it all as a handsome, popular student from a wealthy family, the teaser goes on to reveal that he is hiding his own painful struggles. When he is alone, his signature beaming smile melts into a sorrowful expression, and he remarks sardonically, “The spring of youth is green? Who are they kidding? It’s only from a distance that spring looks green.”
“At a Distance Spring is Green” premieres on June 14 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
