As Drama Geek posted last week, the teasers for Manhole have been intriguing, even if they don’t reveal a whole lot about the plot. I’m tempted by the imagery alone. I’ve never seen this guy before (thus the reason I’m the maknae!), but I really, REALLY want to know why he’s dancing in the middle of a busy street in his pajamas, and now coming out of a manhole in a sharp suit.
And there’s fire and beaches and a tunnel . . .
Here’s the synopsis, in case you missed it the first time around: Bong Pil (Kim Jae Joong) has been preparing to take his civil servant exam for the last three years, but he’s not excited about his studies. He’s also disappointed that his lifelong friend Soo Jin (Uee) is getting married soon, since he’s loved her for the past 28 years. Bong Pil falls into a manhole, travels through time, and tries to prevent Soo Jin’s upcoming wedding.
Hmmm, that tunnel reminds me of something….
Yeah, I’m in.
Manhole will be start airing August 9th on KBS2 every Wednesday and Thursday, taking over the Queen for Seven Days time slot.
