  • The series will feature Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun as Lee Seul-bi, a woman with an ability to see a person’s future, and Na In-woo of “Mystic Pop-Up Bar” as Gong Soo-gwang, an unlucky man who is avoided by everyone around him.

A new teaser for the upcoming romantic K-drama “The Jinx’s Lover,” featuring Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun and Na In-woo of “Mystic PopUp Bar,” dropped on Wednesday.

“The Jinx’s Lover” follows the story of an unlucky man named Gong Soo-kwang (played by Na) who runs into trouble when dreaming of a woman named Lee Seul-bi (Seohyun) who can see a person’s future when she touches them.

The teaser for the upcoming K-drama, released by South Korean TV and media broadcaster KBS, begins with a montage of scenes showing Soo-kwang’s misfortunes, such as his toothbrush snapping in half and his car breaking down. It then gives viewers a glimpse into Seul-bi’s bubbly and energetic personality, in contrast to Soo-kwang’s. The teaser ends with Seul-bi walking up to Soo-kwang’s fish stall and the sun shining as she pulls her umbrella away from her face.

“The Jinx’s Lover” is based on the webcomic “Jinx Yeon-in,” written by Han Ji-hye and illustrated by Goo Seul. The webcomic was released from December 27, 2016 to January 28, 2020 on Kakao. 

KBS2 will air the first episode of the drama on June 15, with new episodes released every Wednesday and Thursday. There will be 16 episodes in total, running an average time of 21 minutes per episode.
