10 years ago, Oh Ha Rin (Yeri) lost her first love. She planned everything to confess to her male friend, Seo Jun (Hongseok), on her birthday. But, to her surprise and horror, he ended up taking his own life. Now, Oh Ha Rin works at an abandoned pet shelter. However, on the 10th anniversary of Seo Jun’s death, she gets her hands on a bunch of photos that her first love has left behind.

Ji Seo Jun- Ha Rin’s first love- looks bright and cheery on the outside. But, he has a darkness inside of him that no one has ever come across to. Ha Rin was the only one who gave him hope, and he started to develop feelings for her. On the very same day, just like Ha Rin, he was on his way to confess her when he met his sudden death in the photography room.

The concept is interesting, and we can’t wait for the show to arrive.

The teaser begins with Oh Ha Rin’s lock screen as the clock hit 12:00 am on June 10 on her phone. A series of notifications and messages start popping on her screen from her friends to wish her a happy birthday. She did not focus on them. However, later, she gets a “reminder,” which reads ‘the day Seo Jun passed.’ In the end, Yeri (Oh Ha Rin) speaks in a voiceover and says that on her unclear 18th birthday, her first love passed away. In the teaser, a polaroid picture of Ha Rin and Seo Jun is also visible as the two are dressed up in school uniforms.

We are definitely excited to see what actually happened ten years ago. Also, if Ha Rin and Seo Jun will ever get to confess to each other. Watch the teaser down below:
