'One Spring Night' tells the story of two uneventful lives that are shaken up by unexpected love coming unannounced at their doorsteps and will start streaming on Netflix May 22
When we saw the first video teaser of 'One Spring Night' starring Han Ji-min, Jung Hae-in and Kim Jun-han, we couldn't help but go "awww."
'One Spring Night' tells the story of two uneventful lives that are shaken up by unexpected love coming unannounced at their doorsteps. They must now figure out what their heart really desires instead of being fixated on faith.
'One Spring Night' will stream on Netflix May 22.
According to the official synopsis of the show, when Lee Jeong-in (played by Han Ji-min) and Yu Ji-ho (played by Jung Hae-in) meet, something unexpected happens. Or it just may be that spring is in the air - and anything is possible. Lee Jung-in is a librarian and Yoo Ji-ho is a pharmacist who have been dating for years. As they start talking about marriage, they start seeing their love and relationship in a new light.
To give you more context than the official synopsis, 'One Spring Night' follows Lee Jung-In, a librarian who chooses to prioritize happiness in her life. Her longtime boyfriend is Kwon Ki-Seok (played by Kim Joon-Han), an impressive man with credentials that could woo anyone - a steady job as a department head at a bank, he comes from a wealthy family, he also happens to be handsome and smart. But when Lee Jung-In meets Yoo Ji-Ho (played by Jung Hae-In), a pharmacist and a single dad, they fall in love.
Han Ji-min as Lee Jung-in
South Korean actress Han Ji-min had her breakout role in the revenge series 'Resurrection' after minor roles in 'All In' and 'Dae Jang Geum'. Following this, she did leading roles in period dramas such as 'Capital Scandal' and 'Yi San', as well as romantic dramas such as 'Rooftop Prince' and 'Familiar Wife'.
Jung Hae-in as Yoo Ji-ho
Jung opened up about his role in the upcoming drama but didn't disclose too many details. “The circumstances surrounding the character and the various problems are somewhat heavy. Ji Ho is a warm-hearted person but is also careful inside,” he was reported saying.
Jung Hae-in made his first appearance in Korean girl group AOA Black's music video for 'Moya' in 2013. His official debut on TV was with 'Bride of the Century' the following year. The South Korean actor gained recognition for supporting roles in the 2017 series 'While You Were Sleeping' and 'Prison Playbook'.
He has his first starring role in the 2018 drama 'Something in the Rain'.
The South Korean romantic drama is directed by Ahn Pan Suk, who is perhaps best known for his realistic storytelling of emotions and love. He has created magic with his storytelling techniques in his previous projects such as 'Behind the White Tower' and 'Secret Affair'. For 'One Spring Night', Ahn has collaborated with star writer Kim Eun once again - they worked together for the superhit drama 'Something in the Rain'.
Netflix hasn't released a trailer as of now, but a video teaser will offer you a sneak peek into the show.
The teaser doesn't tell us much about the series, but it shows that 'One Spring Night' seeks to tell the story of a man and woman seeking love. We hope unlike how things don't work out for people in real life, that they do for Lee Jung-In and Yoo Ji-Ho.

The show is set to premiere on May 22 and you can stream it on Netflix.
