I’ve been tapping my toes impatiently waiting for the C-remake of Queen In Hyun’s Man to drop me a video teaser or two. The pretty (so so pretty) drama stills are nice and all but I want to look at the mood in action. I remember being uninterested in Queen In Hyun’s Man until I watched the brilliantly done teaser that featured leads Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na as mannequins in a store window. Remember that? It was creative and insanely gorgeous with the two leads initially looking plastic and then morphing into living beings before leaping out of their respective windows to meet in the real world.
The first teaser for Love Through Thousands of Years doesn’t disappoint, and even better is the production not copying the original QIHM in teaser concept and presentation. The two leads played by Zheng Shuang and Jin Bo Ran are seen walking across a bridge from opposite ends each holding an end of the red string of fate. He slides a ring down the string to her as they take turns narrating their love story which basically boils down to – fate led us to meet through time and imma going to dare to love you. It also helps that Jin Bo Ran’s time-traveling warrior is Han Chinese hence his visual costuming is so different that Ji Hyun Woo’s Joseon scholar, giving off the assurance that this may be the same plot but go down like a different meal in the end.
“This time is what time. Encounter at this place. Meeting must be destiny. I want to see you, who fears two thousand passing years.”
