Nam Da-reum, Kim Hwan-hee in new teasers for JTBC’s ‘Beautiful World’

On March 8, JTBC dropped two video teasers for the upcoming drama, Beautiful World, featuring teen actors Nam Da-reum and Kim Hwan-hee.

The two video teasers have two versions each, with narrations by Nam and Kim as well as Park Hee-soon and Choo Ja-hyun, their parents in the show. In both their teasers, Nam Da-reun and Kim Hwan-hee have their back facing the camera, slowly turning towards it with helpless and pleading eyes. Nam Da-reum’s teasers are narrated by himself and Choo Ja-hyun, while Kim Hwan-hee and Park Hee-soon narrate her teasers. The narration says, “This is a small but powerful red signal to the world. Without knowing right from wrong, youngsters hate on each other. Victims appear everywhere, while attackers go into hiding. Please show us a beautiful world.”

Beautiful World deals with school violence, an issue that is increasingly making headlines in South Korea. Nam Da-reum (Where Stars Land) takes on the role of Park Sun-ho, a boy fighting for his life after becoming a victim of a school violence incident. Kim Hwan-hee (The Miracle We Met) plays Park Soo-ho, his sister who decides to find out the truth about what happened to him.

Meanwhile, Park Hee-soon (The Missing) and Choo Ja-hyun (A Man Called God) are portraying Park Sun-ho’s struggling parents who are trying to get justice for their son.

Beautiful World is helmed by PD Park Chan-hong and writer Kim Ji-woo, the director-writer team behind tvN’s Memory (2016). It is set to premiere next month, on the 5th, following Jin Goo starrer Legal High.

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.
