tvN’s “Twinkling Watermelon” has unveiled captivating new stills ahead of today’s episode!
“Twinkling Watermelon” is a fantasy coming-of-age drama in which a CODA (child of deaf adult) student born with a gift for music accidentally travels back in time to 1995 through a suspicious music shop. There, he forms the band Watermelon Sugar with other mysterious youths.
Ryeoun stars as Eun Gyeol, the only person who can hear in his family, who leads a double life as the perfect model student by day and a band guitarist by night. Choi Hyun Wook takes on the role of the passionate Yi Chan, Eun Gyeol’s father who was a high school student in 1995. Seol In Ah transforms into Seowon Arts High School’s cello goddess Se Kyung, while Shin Eun Soo plays the cold and haughty “ice princess” Chung Ah, who has been deaf since birth.
In the previous episode, Yi Chan drew inspiration from Chung Ah’s favorite artist Frida Kahlo’s painting “Viva la Vida” and ultimately decided to change their band’s name to “Watermelon Sugar.” This name alteration posed a challenge as they had already produced T-shirts, posters, and more. However, with unwavering determination, Eun Gyeol and Yi Chan ingeniously transformed this obstacle into an opportunity by enlisting Eun Yu as their photographer and Chung Ah as their designer.
Eun Yu and Chung Ah, entrusted with vital roles, threw themselves into their tasks, diligently studying magazine photos in the bookstore and crafting designs for the band’s merchandise. Their tireless efforts as integral members of Watermelon Sugar have borne fruit, as the recently released still showcases the band proudly sporting T-shirts adorned with their band name against a vibrant red watermelon backdrop during the photo shoot under the skilled direction of Eun Yu, who leads as the photographer.
In other stills, Eun Gyeol and Eun Yu exchange a meaningful glance against the backdrop of lush greenery, while Yi Chan and Chung Ah create an endearing and romantic moment of their own as Chung Ah affectionately fixes Yi Chan’s hair. These interactions have left viewers eagerly anticipating the development of the relationships among these four.
Given Eun Yu’s previous demonstration of her impressive photography skills with shots taken at the amusement park and Chung Ah demonstrated her artistic talent through her sketchbook drawings, viewers are now eagerly looking forward to the collaborative work of these two as they capture the unique charm of Watermelon Sugar in today’s episode.
The next episode of “Twinkling Watermelon” airs on October 30 at 8:50 p.m. KST.
