Watch: Kim Yoo Jung And Ahn Hyo Seop’s Fates Are Entangled In New Teaser For “Lovers Of The Red Sky”
SBS has shared an intriguing new teaser for its upcoming drama “Lovers of the Red Sky”!
Based on the novel of the same name by author Jung Eun Gwol, whose novels “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “The Moon Embracing the Sun” have also famously been adapted into hit dramas, “Lovers of the Red Sky” is a historical fantasy romance drama set in the Joseon era.
Kim Yoo Jung will star as Hong Chun Gi, the Joseon dynasty’s only female painter, a female painter who was born blind but miraculously regains vision. Ahn Hyo Seop will star as blind astrologer Ha Ram, who is able to read the stars despite losing his sight. Gong Myung will star as the romantic and lonely Prince Yangmyung, while Kwak Si Yang will play the cruel and ambitious Prince Joohyang.
In the newly released teaser, Hong Chun Gi and Ha Ram keep running into each other inadvertently. Ha Ram remarks, “Yesterday, by chance, I met a girl who smelled strongly of ink in the palanquin.” Meanwhile, Hong Chun Gi describes Ha Ram as “a man who fell from the sky and then suddenly fell unconscious.” Hovering over him, she cautiously asks him to open his eyes, to which he responds by unexpectedly pinning her to the floor.
As the caption teases that the two characters are “intertwined by a mysterious fate,” Ha Ram wonders, “Can this be called a simple coincidence? My lost memories, and the fact that I met a girl who resembles her? What is the meaning of this?”
After the teaser jumps to a flashback of the two characters as children, Hong Chun Gi says in voice-over, “If we end up meeting again by chance, then I want to try drawing his face no matter what.”
The clip ends with a cute scene in which Ha Ram asks Hong Chun Gi for her name. As Hong Chun Gi shyly stammers out her reply, Ha Ram cuts in to ask, “Hong Hong Hong? Your name is really Hong Hong Hong?” She then clarifies, “My name is Hong Chun Gi.”
“Lovers of the Red Sky” premieres on August 30 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki. In the meantime, check out the new teaser below!
