First Teasers for tvN Drama Memories of Alhambra with Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye

The teasers are here for November 2018 tvN fantasy romance drama Memories of Alhambra and my first impression is that it’s totally got the exact vibe as Goblin.

It’s an effective and captivating promo for sure, worked well with Goblin and works well here to showcase Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin in Alhambra.
