Teaser for Kim So Hyun and Ji Soo’s Page Turner Featuring Intense Piano Playing Amid Rivalry and Friendship

I love screenwriter Park Hye Ryun so it’s bittersweet that she’s coming back this month with a new K-drama but it’s only going to be a short three episode special. If anyone can deliver something short and sweet it’s her, so many of Park Hye Ryun’s successful dramas like I Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio all made huge impressions in the first two episodes, so clearly she can write stories that grip the audience interest right off the bat.

Page Turner is a school drama set in the world of highly competitive piano playing, with a side of teen athletics thrown in. Kim So Hyun plays a dedicated piano prodigy who has to reassess her path in life after an accident, and gets help from Ji Soo as a pole vaulting athletic and her fellow pianist rival played by Shin Jae Ha.
