Happy family meets tragedy in new poster, teaser for ‘Beautiful World’

In the run-up to its premiere next month, JTBC’s Beautiful World has been on a teaser-dropping spree. On March 26, the family melodrama has another promotional material, this time a poster featuring the family that will take center stage in the story.

The poster shows Nam Da-reum (Where Stars Land) and Kim Hwan-hee (The Miracle We Met), who play the siblings Park Sun-ho and Park Soo-ho, respectively. Park Hee-soon and Choo Ja-hyun are also in the poster as the kids’ dad Park Moo-jin and mom Kang In-ha. They are joined by Lee Chung-ah (Because This Is My First Life), who plays the cool auntie, Park Joon-ha.

The group is the spitting image of a postcard happy family, with everyone smiling around a table laden with baked goods. Curiously though, Nam Da-reum is shown in grayscale while everyone else is in color. The text over the poster says “I earnestly pray that my son wakes up, I hope he does,” alluding to the tragedy that will strike the family when Park Sun-ho falls victim to school violence.

A video teaser released last week delves into Park Sun-ho’s idyllic childhood and the deep love his parents raised him with. In the teaser, Nam Da-reum lay heavily bandaged in a hospital as Choo Ja-hyun’s voice says, “Seon-ho, can you hear mom’s voice?” A flashback to the moments all parents celebrate with their children—their birth, first steps, first day at school—is shown next. Choo’s emotional voice says, “Stay strong, son. Mom, Dad, and Soo-ho are here for you. Let’s wake up soon and go home.” The teaser ends with Sun-ho’s mom beside his bed, holding his hand and weeping.

Beautiful World is slated to premiere on April 5.

As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
