The upcoming KBS 2TV drama “Heartbeat,” (가슴이 뛴다) scheduled to premiere on June 26th at 9:45 PM, reveals exciting highlights that make the series even more intriguing. The drama, directed by Lee Hyun-seok and Lee Min-soo, and written by Kim Ha-na and Jung Seung-joo, is produced by WeMad and Monster Union.
It tells the captivating story of Sun Woo-hyul, a half-human, half-vampire who missed becoming fully human by a single day, and Ji An, a woman who is an enigma to ordinary humans, as they unintentionally start living together and embark on a thrilling symbiotic romance in search of true warmth. With its unparalleled vampire-human bond and tantalizing coexistence, “Heartbeat” promises to heat up the summer of 2023 like never before. As the first broadcast is just four days away, let’s explore the key points that will captivate the viewers.
A Fresh Blend of Comedy and Romance: A Unique Vampire-Human Love Story
“Heartbeat” is an exhilarating symbiotic romance that begins when Sun Woo-hyul, a half-human, half-vampire (played by Ok Taecyeon), and Ji An, a seemingly bloodless human owner (played by Won Ji-an), meet and unexpectedly start living together. While a love story between a vampire and a human might seem ordinary, director Lee Hyun-seok, who helmed “Heartbeat,” stated that he excluded any familiar elements and instead focused on incorporating fresh and realistic aspects.
In the teaser video released earlier, we catch a glimpse of Sun Woo-hyul, who wakes up after a hundred years, witnessing the astonishing sight of everything reflected in the world. We also see the extraordinary Ji An, the human owner who manages such vampires with exceptional skills. The two characters, with extreme personalities, showcase their chemistry through subtle everyday stories rather than relying on sensational narratives. Moreover, the addition of comedic elements hints at a thrilling cohabitation that intensifies the intrigue. Viewers are eagerly anticipating how the comedy-infused romance between vampires and humans will unfold.
The Hilarious Survival Journey of Vampires Who Can’t Find Human Blood Easily
Sun Woo-hyul, the vampire who yearns for passionate love, has spent a hundred years in a coffin to become human, only to fall short by a single day. When he wakes up after a century, the first thing he sees is Ji An, who poses as his landlord, demanding that he earn money. While he used to feed on human blood in the past, Sun Woo-hyul now finds himself in a situation where he must buy blood from humans for survival. This realistic portrayal of vampire survival is far from the fantastical vampire fantasy and highlights the struggles faced by vampires in the real world.
