Watch: Red Velvet’s Yeri Reminisces About 1st Love PENTAGON’s Hongseok In Teaser For New Web Drama
“Blue Birthday” is a fantasy romance thriller in which Oh Ha Rin (Yeri) revisits the past through mysterious photos left by her first love Ji Seo Jun (Hongseok), who died on her birthday 10 years ago. She had resolved to confess to him on her birthday, but he ended up taking his own life, much to her shock and horror.
The teaser starts off on Oh Ha Rin’s lockscreen as the clock strikes midnight on June 10. Friends start flooding her phone with congratulatory birthday messages, but she then gets a solemn reminder that reads, “The day Seo Jun passed.”
In a voice-over, Yeri comments, “On my unusually clear 18th birthday, my first love left the world.”
