Key Reasons To Look Forward To “Oh! Youngsim”
Upcoming drama “Oh! Youngsim” has got viewers anticipating its premiere!
Based on the classic Korean cartoon “Youngsim,” “Oh! Youngsim” is a romantic comedy about the reunion between childhood friends Oh Young Sim (Song Ha Yoon) and Wang Kyung Tae (Super Junior’s Donghae), who unexpectedly run into each other after 20 years.
The unique characters around Oh Young Sim, who is now an experienced variety show producer, will intrigue with their diverse personalities, while the retro aesthetics of the show are expected to bring back memories for viewers. Ahead of the drama’s premiere, here are three things to look forward to.
Back to the 1900s
The drama “Oh! Youngsim” was created out of curiosity about how the main characters in the 1990 animation series “Youngsim” are currently living. One of the main things viewers can look forward to is being able to reunite as adults with the characters they spent their youth with and experience the sweetness and bitterness together once again. Add to that a production that maximizes the delightfully warm analog feel of the original animation, and you have a recipe for both laughs and tears.
A modernized retro rom-com of a reunion with one’s first love after 20 years
Oh Young Sim, who enjoys making people laugh, has become a variety show producer, while Wang Kyung Tae reappears after 20 years with an entirely transformed image. Although reuniting for the first time since they were 14, the two continue right where they left off as they bicker and show off close chemistry that makes the 20-year gap seem insignificant. Between the excitement of reuniting with one’s first love as an adult, and a relationship where the person in power has changed, there is a lot of curiosity on whether the childhood friends will be able to develop a successful romance.
Real-life chemistry by characters with unique charms
From Oh Young Sim’s supportive family to her co-workers at the broadcasting station, viewers should not miss the enthusiasm of the uniquely charming characters. Tension will be added by Chae Dong (Lee Min Jae) and Wol Sook (Jung Woo Yeon), who will cause a huge stir between Oh Young Sim, who is desperate to save her program, and Wang Kyung Tae, who has become the CEO of a hot start-up. The show will depict love, friendship, and familial bonds between Young Sim, her family, and the broadcasting station staff, and will make viewers laugh and cry. Attention is focused on the synergy between the reputable actors as they portray their characters with unique charms.
Genie TV’s new original drama “Oh! Youngsim” will premiere on May 15 at 10:00 pm KST on Genie TV, Genie TV Mobile, ENA, and TVING.
