A year after parting with her deceased boyfriend, Jun Hee time-slips into 1998 and encounters Shi Heon, who looks exactly like her late boyfriend, and his best friend In Gyu. The new stills give a glimpse into the characters.
Jun Hee (Jeon Yeo Been), who mourned her long-lost lover Yeon Jun (Ahn Hyo Seop), finds herself in 1998 when she listens to an old cassette tape delivered in a parcel. But in that time, she’s Min Joo, a high school girl, and finds herself beside Shi Heon (Ahn Hyo Seop), who looks just like Yeon Jun, and Shi Heon’s best friend, In Gyu (Kang Hoon). Faced with the same faces but different names in different times, Jun Hee is thrown into a world of confusion.
Ahn Hyo Seop plays Yeon Jun, who meets an untimely death in an unexpected plane crash while preparing a proposal for Jun Hee, and Shi Heon, a high school student in 1998 with the same face. The actor revealed, “I was charmed in being able to portray various aspects according to the time difference of the character.”
Jeon Yeo Been, who becomes Jun Hee, a working woman in 2023, and Min Joo, a timid high school student in 1998, emphasized, “The most important thing was belief. The belief that I was Min Joo when I was Min Joo and Jun Hee when I was JunHee.” She added, “Min Joo and Jun Hee’s perspectives, actions, and reactions towards Yeon Jun and Shi Heon were different, so I relied heavily on the other actors to build the characters,” also expressing gratitude towards her fellow actors.
Kang Hoon, who steps into the role of In Gyu, said, “Though he may appear weak on the outside, In Gyu is rational, calm, and thoughtful. I focused on the character’s subtle emotional changes,” arousing anticipation for the character with diverse emotional layers.
Meanwhile, A Time Called You will be released exclusively on Netflix on September 8th.
