Our Beloved Summer is a romance of young people’s first love reversed when their ex-lovers are forcibly summoned due to the popularity of a documentary filmed in high school. The complex and subtle emotions experienced as the relationship that should have ended with ‘It was dirty together and let’s not see it again!’ Unrequited love resembling the fickle early summer weather, the love stories and growing pains of young people that come and go again and again give a heart-fluttering sympathy.
Meanwhile, the teaser poster is taking off the veil and attracting attention. Under the clear sunlight breaking through the growing greenery, Choi Woong and Guk Yeon-soo’s school uniforms hung side by side on the clothesline are thrilling just looking at them. The phrase ‘I fell in love with you in the early summer of the year’ added on top of it stimulates curiosity about 19-year-old Choi Woong and Guk Yeon-soo’s first meeting and their first love. We are already looking forward to the story of laughing, crying, and fluttering in the season when the two were together.
Choi Woo-shik takes on the role of ‘Choi Woong’, an illustrator of a free-spirited building. Choi Woong, who does not have a proper dream and is accustomed to living by hiding himself, is a person who faces various emotions. In a meeting with Kook Yeon-soo, who suddenly appeared without notice after six years, Choi Woong reveals a new side of the relationship with a different image from before.
Kim Da-mi transforms into ‘Kook Yeon-soo’, a realist public relations expert who goes straight for success. Kook Yeon-soo did not miss the first place in the entire school during her school days, and became a publicist recognized by everyone when she appeared in society. She is a confident young woman who has run only for success, but she is also becoming an adult living with scars and emptiness in the harsh reality. As she reunites as a business partner with Choi Woong, who broke up not to see him even if he dies, the emotions she’s been working hard to begin to shake.
- Our Beloved Summer replace Lovers of the Red Sky and will be followed by A Business Proposal.
- ‘Our Beloved Summer’ tries to differentiate itself by simultaneously planning a drama and a webtoon. The Naver webtoon ‘That Year, We Like Early Summer!’ (written/illustrated by Han Police), produced as a prequel to the drama, revolves around the main characters Choi Woong and Guk Yeon-soo while they were in high school. It will be released for the first time as a Sunday webtoon on the night of the 6th, and will be serialized through Naver Webtoon and Naver Series.
