Song Kang and Park In Hwan make an unlikely student-teacher duo in new posters for “Navillera”
Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, “Navillera” will tell the story of Duk Chool, a man who begins ballet at the age of 70 (played by Park In Hwan), and Chae Rok, a 23-year-old ballerina who gets lost while chasing his dreams (played by Song Kang).
Although Chae Rok possesses extraordinary talent as a ballet dancer, he starts dancing relatively late in his life compared to his peers. As he winds up tasting the bitterness of reality, he loses his way on the road to his dreams—but his life takes an unexpected turn when he meets a one-of-a-kind student.
Meanwhile, Duk Chool is a retired mailman who, in the final chapter of his life, decides to finally pursue his lifelong dream of learning to dance ballet. When he meets Chae Rok as a student, he ends up turning his young teacher’s world upside down.
In the newly released poster, Song Kang wears a cute pout—and a post-it with the message “Find Strength!”—on his face as the unhappy Chae Rok. Park In Hwan, on the other hand, is grinning from ear to ear as the beaming Duk Chool, who affectionately pulls his sulking teacher close.
“Navillera” also shared a webtoon version of the poster, which was drawn by the original webtoon authors HUN and Jimin.
The producers of “Navillera” commented, “The poster gives viewers a glimpse of the close-knit chemistry that is unique to Park In Hwan and Song Kang, a new and unusual ballet student-teacher duo. We are delighted that the two actors’ cute chemistry was illustrated in the style of the original webtoon.”
“Navillera” will premiere on March 22 at 9 p.m. KST. Don't forget to catch up with the latest Korean drama news with us every day!
