Twinkling Watermelon: A Youth Drama Like No Other
The story of this drama will revolve around a high schooler from 2023 named Eun Gyeol (played by Ryeoun). The studious child becomes a night owl due to his passion for music. He is a guitarist who is a part of a band. His love for music drives him towards a music store, which takes him to the time of 1995.
The tide of time has flown backward as the 2023 high schooler is now in the time his father and mother used to be in high school. He gets to meet his father Yi Chan in his youthful years. When Eun Gyeol calls him dad, Yi Chan thinks he is a lunatic. With time, they get along to form a band named “Watermelon Sugar” with Se Kyung and Cheong Ah.
Yi Chan has a crush on Se Kyung, which is surprising for the future child, Eun Gyeol, as his mother is Cheong Ah.

Amidst all this, will he ever return to the 2020s, the question remains.
