I’m living the promos for upcoming drama Our Beloved Summer (That Summer, We) for not just the acting chemistry glimpsed from the previews but also the deft touch in whetting the appetite. The first preview showed leads Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi as high schoolers in that perennial love/hate relationship when the boy likes the girl but she likes to play hard to get. This new preview time jumps the leads to the present day when both are ten years older, not necessarily emotionally wiser, but definitely has the weight of the real world on their shoulders on top of whatever feelings are lingering. I LOVE IT, and love it even more that it’s these two unassuming actors with genuine talent essaying this chemistry because it feels alive and real rather than cheesy. This month has seen a ton of new dramas drop to varying degrees of success so Our Beloved Summer will have a nice month to marinate before it arrives in December.
