Watch: Seo Ji Hye, Hong Soo Hyun, And Lee Sung Jae Face Ups And Downs In “Red Balloon” Teaser
TV Chosun has released a teaser for its new miniseries “Red Balloon”!
Starring Seo Ji Hye, Lee Sung Jae, Hong Soo Hyun, and Lee Sang Woo, “Red Balloon” is a thrilling yet passionate story about the sense of deprivation we all feel when comparing ourselves to others, the thirst of jealous ambition, and our struggles to quench that thirst. Seo Ji Hye stars as Jo Eun Kang, who dreams of becoming a teacher but instead works as a tutor after consistently failing her employment exams. Lee Sang Woo plays Han Ba Da (Hong Soo Hyun)’s husband Go Cha Won, who is a dermatologist.
The teaser stars with Jo Eun Kang dancing joyfully in the rain as though she doesn’t have a care in the world, then shifting to a time in the past when high schoolers Jo Eun Kang and Han Ba Da made a pinky promise to be friends. As they declare, “We’re friends,” the scene overlaps with the image of them hugging in the present, further emphasizing their solid friendship.
Things then begin to take a turn for the worse, with Han Ba Da looking worried as she notices three pearls are missing in a collection. As soon as she finishes speaking, Jo Eun Kang says determinedly, “We have to find them today.” The voice of Kwon Tae Gi (Seol Jung Hwan) can be heard saying, “I have to resort to putting on all kinds of shows to please my friends.”
Meanwhile, Ji Nam Chul (Lee Sung Jae) works hard but still ends up being scolded by his father-in-law Go Mul Sang (Yoon Joo Sang). With a stony expression, he laments how his father-in-law will always find a way to put him down no matter how hard he works, signaling changes coming for him and his life.
Later, Jo Eun Kang is confronted by both her younger sister Jo Eun San (Jung Yoo Min) and Kwon Tae Gi in voice-over, and her expression clearly gives away how anxious she is at hearing them speculate about the man she has on her mind. As she looks at Han Ba Da and Go Cha Won’s wedding photo, she says, “It seems like it’s mine, but it actually isn’t. It’s like a person I can’t reach.” The scene then shifts to show Go Cha Won gently treating a wound on Jo Eun Kang’s knee, and their gazes meet.
The teaser ends with Go Cha Won moving towards Jo Eun Kang as though he’s about to kiss her, and Jo Eun Kang’s voice can be heard saying, “You know this is a secret from Ba Da, right?”
