Shin Hye-sun remembers her past in See You in My 19th Life
The first teaser has dropped for tvN’s new fantasy romance See You in My 19th Life, featuring our reincarnating heroine Shin Hye-sun (Mr. Queen) and a quick glimpse of her leading man Ahn Bo-hyun (Yumi’s Cells 2).
While most people forget their past life when they’re reincarnated anew, the webtoon adaptation makes Ban Ji-eum (Shin Hye-sun) a little special, giving her the ability to remember all of her past lives. As Ji-eum, she is now on life number 19. But this time, she still feels tied to her 18th life as Yoon Joo-won, compelling her to seek out Joo-won’s past love Moon Seo-ha (Ahn Bo-hyun).
In second lead roles, and further complicating matters, we also have Ha Yoon-kyung (Extraordinary Attorney Woo) as Joo-won’s younger sister, in addition to Ahn Dong-goo (The Law Cafe) playing Seo-ha’s secretary and childhood friend.
Beginning with her first life, a few thousand years in the past, the new teaser cycles through each reincarnation, embodying different genders and cultures over time. For example, the fourth life was spent in the Middle East, devoted to alchemy, while life number five fought as a Goryeo warrior. Number 14 was a flamenco dancer, and number 17 joined the circus.
We then reach our heroine in her present life and as she turns to face the camera, Ji-eum’s words are repeated in the captions: “Going to you again in my 19th life. See You in My 19th Life.” The teaser then closes as Ji-eum finally meets with Seo-ha.
Directed by PD Lee Na-jung (Mine, Fight My Way) with scripts by Choi Young-rim, tvN’s See You in My 19th Life is slated to premiere on June 17, following Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938 in the weekend slot.
