Ryeoun, Seol In Ah, Choi Hyun Wook, And Shin Eun Soo Dish On Their Characters’ Most Shining Moments In “Twinkling Watermelon”
With two episodes remaining until the finale, the cast of tvN’s “Twinkling Watermelon” dished on the scenes in which their characters shined the most in the drama!
“Twinkling Watermelon” is a fantasy coming-of-age drama in which a CODA (child of deaf adult) student born with a gift for music accidentally travels back in time to 1995 through a suspicious music shop. There, he forms the band Watermelon Sugar with other mysterious youths.
Ryeoun plays Eun Gyeol who travels back in time to 1995 and meets his father Yi Chan (Choi Hyun Wook) when he is in high school. Although he hid his love for music due to his sense of responsibility toward his family, Eun Gyeol could pursue music after traveling back in time and meeting his father. For his favorite scene, Ryeoun chose the moment Eun Gyeol first went on stage as a band with Yi Chan. Ryeoun shared, “Eun Gyeol always wanted to be acknowledged by his parents, and he shined the most when he was performing the music he loved with his father.”
Choi Hyun Wook, who plays the passionate Yi Chan, replied, “It is when [Yi Chan] first starts something like when he first started the band and when he faced his first love. To Yi Chan who lives passionately because he wants to shine every day, ‘the first time’ was the most dazzling moment above all.”
Seol In Ah stars as both Se Kyung as well as her daughter Eun Yu who also travels back in time to the year 1995. The actress remarked, “Se Kyung’s most precious memory is when she was serenaded by Ji Hwan (Woo Jae Yeon), while Eun Yu’s most precious moment is when she learned that the moment Eun Gyeol fell for her was when she was Eun Yu herself and not Se Kyung.”
Shin Eun Soo portrays Chung Ah, a character who has been deaf since birth. For her character’s favorite scene, Shin Eun Soo picked the moment when Chung Ah first runs into Yi Chan at the bookstore. Shin Eun Soo shared, “Like how they say a person becomes more beautiful when in love, I believe that Chung Ah’s face after she met Yi Chan properly for the first time and fell in love shined more brightly than anyone else’s. I also feel that Yi Chan was the starting point of Chung Ah’s shining life, so I believe that scene to be Chung Ah’s most dazzling moment.”
The second to last episode of “Twinkling Watermelon” will air on November 13 at 8:50 p.m. KST.
