Lee Shin Young's star is definitely on the rise ever since he starred as one of the Company Five's charming soldiers in the mega-hit K-drama Crash Landing On You. And as we know now, the 22-year-old actor is gearing up to lead his very own drama called How To Buy A Friend. Shin Young stars as high schooler Park Chan Hong who ends up in a "contractual friendship" with the school's legendary fighter Heo Don Hyuk (Shin Seung Ho) because of a poem he writes.
We've already seen the show's first teaser which features Chan Hong in an ~intense confrontation~ with Don Hyuk. But after watching it, I thought there was something missing—the vital ingredient in K-dramas: kilig.
No need to fret though 'cause we were given just that in the show's second teaser! The new teaser introduces us to Chan Hong's first love Uhm Se Yoon, played by 20-year-old actress Kim So Hye. All throughout the teaser, we hear Shin Young's voice reciting the aforementioned poem which talks about how Spring brings out newness in life—both the good and bad.
But, but, but! We're also given some tender scenes of Chan Hong and Se Yoon interacting in school. Lakas maka-first love lang!
They even *hold hands* at one point:
And had some major kulitan while "studying":
Things take a ~dark~ turn when a voice calls for Chan Hong and a girl is seen falling on the ground. Grabe naman the suspense! To know what exactly these things mean, we'll have to wait 'til How To A Friend premieres on April 6 on KBS 2TV.
