tvN’s “Twinkling Watermelon” has shared a sneak peek of its upcoming 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 Lee Chan, Eun Gyeol’s father who was a high school student in 1995.
In the previous episode, bassist Kang Hyun Yul (Yoon Jae Chan), who was a bit rough around the edges but possessed a deep passion for music, joined Lee Chan’s band after being convinced by him that he’d recruit the renowned guitarist Yoon Dong Jin (Kim Jun Hyung). However, when Lee Chan’s promises fell short and he failed to recruit Yoon Dong Jin, the band was pushed to the brink of disbandment even before their journey officially began.
Amidst this turmoil, Eun Gyeol, who had come to the school to meet Lee Chan, coincidentally crossed paths with Kang Hyun Yul, leading to a tentative agreement with high stakes. Eun Gyeol, driven by the desire to give his father Lee Chan a shining youth, was determined to keep the band alive. This prompts Eun Gyeol to accept Kang Hyun Yul’s challenge, setting the stage for an electrifying showdown between these two musical prodigies and igniting excitement throughout the school.
In the newly released stills, both are completely immersed in their performance, their unwavering determination evident in their focused expressions. Eun Gyeol’s exceptional guitar and bass skills, along with Kang Hyun Yul’s impressive technique, have captivated the attention of their fellow students.
Notably, Lee Chan, the band’s frontman, and manager Oh Ma Joo (Ahn Do Gyu) are nervously watching the battle with hopeful hearts. Since this is Lee Chan’s only chance to win the heart of his first love Se Kyung (Seol In Ah), he wholeheartedly supports Eungyeol.
Will Eun Gyeol emerge victorious over Kang Hyun Yul and save Lee Chan’s band?
The next episode of “Twinkling Watermelon” airs on October 9 at 8:50 p.m. KST.
