The first teaser video for Racket Boys has been revealed, showing the racket boys’ members.
SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday series is about the coming-of-age of sixteen boys who dream of playing badminton. With a farming village as its background, the series tells a warm and touching story. Moreover, the show is written by scriptwriter Jung Bo Hoon from Prison Playbook and directed by producer Jo Young Kwang from innocent Defendant and Heart Surgeons.
The teaser is a 40-second long clip that captures the energetic members, including Tang Joon Sang, Sun Sang Yeon, Choi Hyun Wook, Kim Kang Hoon, and Lee Jae In. As the head of the village (Woo Hyun) and the school principal (Kim Ki Cheon) narrates the teaser, they introduce the Racket Boys. “The dark one with big eyes and the youngest” is Lee Young Tae (Kim Kang Hoon), while “The one who is always on his phone” is Bang Yoon Dam (Son Sang Yeon). Furthermore, the friendship between the unique characters is eye-catching. While the boys seem confident, a voice says, “I heard that the school is disbanding the Badminton team.” Could the Racket Boys overcome their crisis?
Despite being only 40-second long, the teaser is attracting a lot of attention as it hints at the start of what seems to be a hit show. Viewers of the clip left enthusiastic responses such as, “I’m already falling for the members,” “It’s cheerful, it’s refreshing, it’s cute! I’ve been waiting for this kind of show!,” and “Already feels like I’m on vacation! It’s Racket Boys for me this year.”
With the enthusiastic comments, Racket Boys will air in the first half of the year.
