A brand new teaser has been released for the coming-of-age drama “Twinkling Watermelon.”
“Twinkling Watermelon” tells the story Eun Gyeol (Ryeoun), a CODA (child of deaf adult) student born with a gift for music. However, his life soon takes an unexpected turn when he crash lands in an unfamiliar place after time traveling through a mysterious music shop all the way back to 1995. There, he forms the band Watermelon Sugar with his father Lee Chan (Choi Hyun Wook), who was a high school student at the time, and other mysterious youths.
The newest teaser draws special attention to the changes happening between Lee Chan and his high school love interest Se Kyung (Seol In Ah).
The teaser starts with the sudden return of Se Kyung from her time studying abroad, much to the surprise of Lee Chan and Eun Gyeol. However, it seems that her time abroad brought some changes to Se Kyung’s life, and viewers see a shot of her cutting her hair as a possible symbol of the changes she experienced.
Se Kyung also shows a bit more boldness upon her return, actively seeking out Lee Chan, who has been keeping a low profile due to his busy schedule. Her newfound charisma draws the attention of Eun Gyeol as well as his mother Chung Ah (Shin Eun Soo), who is harboring a secret crush on Lee Chan.
Seeing as he is trying to get his parents together, Eun Gyeol does his best to intercept the forming love triangle by confronting Se Kyung and asking why she returned. However, she simply replies, “Is there any reason I shouldn’t have come back?” with a nonchalant expression.
As if to show Eun Gyeol that she can do as she pleases, Se Kyung ends up asking Lee Chan on a date to the amusement park. Of course, Lee Chan is ecstatic to be spending time with his crush and can’t stop smiling the entire time, even in spite of Eun Gyeol’s valiant attempts to derail the two high schoolers’ date.
And on top of all of that, Se Kyung also approaches Chung Ah, who proposes that they be friends. What could this mean for the relationships between Se Kyung, Chung Ah, and Lee Chan, and could this possibly affect the future?
