“The School Nurse Files” Unveils Main Poster With Jung Yu Mi & Nam Joo Hyuk Looking Ready On Their Mission

By  | 

Jung Yu Mi and Nam Joo Hyuk have an important mission together in Netflix new original series, The School Nurse Files!

Fighting monsters, saving the school and going to lunch after, appear to be an unlikely combination of activity; but the two actors’ characters diligently agree on this goal in The School Nurse Files.

With its approaching premiere, Netflix has been teasing K-Drama fans with their newest treat. After introducing the main characters, The School Nurse Files pitched a fascinating new poster featuring Ahn Eun-young (Jung Yu Mi) and Hong In-pyo (Nam Joo Hyuk)standing side by side against the backdrop of the sun setting in Seoul.

Visible in the picture are floating jellyfish and whale surrounding them. Not real animals though because those are jellies representing invisible blobs of greed; and only Nurse Eun-young can see those jellies.

The eye-catching image of Ahn Eun-young and Hong In-pyo holding hands is made more vivid by the fairy tale-like background of colorful jellies filling the Seoul sky. Eun-young’s appearance is intriguing.

Dressed in her school nurse’s gown she holds a rainbow-colored sword and has the serious expression of a woman warrior. Complementing her look is the Classical Chinese Literature teacher Hong In-pyo, who discovered his gift of recharging Eun-young with his positive energies.

A closer look at “jellies”

Threading on a supernatural theme, The School Nurse Files incorporates the idea of Jellies. Created unknowingly by living beings, jellies are remnants of their desires. While most of it are powerless, the jellies can get dangerous when tampered.

Ahn Eun-young has devoted her life to exorcise them using the special gift of perception she was born with.

An extraordinary story powered by two amazing actors

Delivering a refreshingly novel story, The School Nurse Files boasts innovative visual effects. As seen on the main poster, Ahn Eun-young defeats jellies and Hong In-pyo keeps her charged up.

Ahn Eun-young, who has led a lonely life fighting the battle unbeknownst to others, and Hong In-pyo, whose disabled leg has made him distance himself from others, come together as two incomplete people who find wholeness in each other. Jung Yu-mi and Nam Joo-hyuk create brilliant on-screen chemistry with their portrayal of these roles.

An imaginative plot from inventive creative team

Acclaimed female creators, writer Chung Se-rang and director Lee Kyoung-mi, have joined forces in creating The School Nurse Files. School Nurse Ahn Eun-young, the novel the series is based on, won the 2013 Changbi Novel Prize and the 2017 Hankook Ilbo Literary Award.

Having won such accolades, there is a lot of excitement about Chung Se-rang working on a series based on her popular novel.

Regarding her original and heartwarming novel, Chung Se-rang explained, “I wanted to write a story about good-hearted adults who wish to protect minors without expecting anything in return.”

Additionally, the writer contributed to writing the script alongside director Lee Kyoung-mi. Chung Se-rang noted, “Experts are able to add more plentiful layers in their video interpretation which is wonderful.”

Director Lee Kyoung-mi also explained more about “the story of a female warrior in the making, learning to accept her powers.” She learns to accept herself despite her differences and grows into becoming a hero that eliminates contaminated jellies.

“I wanted to share some warmth to all of the lonely people everywhere through this new world where imperfect Ahn Eun-young and Hong In-pyo meet,” Lee Kyoung-mi shared.

Don’t miss the unique story that has never been seen before when The School Nurse Files premieres on September 25, only on Netflix.
