Upcoming SBS sports series Racket Boys has released an initial teaser poster featuring main stars Tang Jun-sang, Son Sang-yeon, Choi Hyun-wook, Kim Kang-hoon, Lee Jae-in, and Lee Ji-won.
Racket Boys follows the heartwarming journey of young badminton rookies as they struggle to make it in to a fiercely competitive junior athletic tournament. The tale is penned by Prison Playbook (2017–2018) screenwriter Jung Bo-hoon and helmed by producing director (PD) Jo Young-kwang of Heart Surgeons (2018).
Set against the picturesque backdrop of a rural village, the freshly dropped teaser poster shows middle-school badminton players Yoon Hae-gang (Tang Jun-sang, Crash Landing on You), Bang Yun-dam (Son Sang-yeon, Failing in Love), Lee Han-sol (Lee Ji-won, The Uncanny Counter), Lee Yong-tae (Kim Kang-hoon, Mouse), Na Woo-chan (Choi Hyun-wook, Taxi Driver), and Han Se-yoon (Lee Jae-in, Undercover) all lined up in a row while chasing after the town bus. Adding dashes of hope and optimism to the scene are tiny graphics of shuttlecocks, white feathers, and colorful dots that scatter across the cloudy, blue sky. The phrase in the middle says, “Welcome, is it your first time in a village at the edge of the earth?” raising everyone’s curiosity on how the six vibrant characters will reach a seemingly impossible dream together.
The production team shared, “The teaser poster is a sneak peek of the refreshing scenes in Racket Boys. Bright, clean, and cool nature will visit everyone at home and ease away their tiredness during these difficult times. We hope to make you smile and introduce you to a wonderful process of healing.”
Racket Boys is slated to air as a Monday and Tuesday drama and premiere this May 31 at 10 p.m. KST. Watch the drama’s first teaser here.
