Observations from the official trailer

In the trailer video, a young Moon Gang Tae is walking on the rain with his older brother and an older lady who looks like his mother. As the lady is more focused on the older brother, Moon Gang Tae ends up getting drenched.

At the backdrop, a voice tells Moon Gang Tae, “It is your job to look after your older brother. You must keep him safe.” A brief glimpse at Moon Gang Tae’s face shows that he is sad and upset.

Then, the video trails to the grown up Moon Gang Tae (Kim Soo Hyun) and Moon Sang Tae (Oh Jung Se), who are having a conversation about Go Moon Young’s book. Being a huge fan, Moon Sang Tae always scribbles in that writer’s books.

Afterward comes Go Moon Young (Seo Ye Ji), an eccentric lady, who seems to have taken interest to Moon Gang Tae. While they’re constantly at crossroads with each other, Moon Gang Tae makes it clear that he does not want to do anything with the woman.

In the video, a sentence is displayed which says, “A nightmare turns into a fairytale.” This hints at the changes that will come in the lives of both the main leads, which will bloom into an unexpected romance.
