Red Velvet's Yeri to Steal the Spotlight with New Web Drama Blue Birthday
Apart from her solid and enchanting stage performances as a Red Velvet member, Yeri is ready to steal the spotlight with her first drama Blue Birthday.
Romance-thriller web drama Blue Birthday tells the story of a 28-year-old woman named Oh Ha Rin (Yeri), whose first love died on her 18th birthday.
On that special day, she planned to confess her feelings for Ji Seo Jun (Hong Seok), her friend, but to her shock, he ended up taking his own life.
Playlist Studio Unveils Blue Birthday Trailer
In the newly unveiled trailer, the video starts with Oh Ha Rin confessing her love to Ji Seo Jun, which he then accepted. However, it turned out that it was just a daydream of Oh Ha Rin during her 28th birthday, which she is celebrating with her old high school friends.
Since Ji Seo Jun is his first love, Oh Ha Rin misses him so much that she even hallucinates him coming back to greet her on her special day. But what's more mysterious is that in her illusion, Ji Seo Jun still looks young like a high schooler, a big contrast to Oh Ha Rin and her friends, who are all in their adult years.
She always remembers the unexpected and tragic event of her first love, and makes a selfless wish, "My wish is that you didn't die. On my 18th birthday."
With the new trailer released, Yeri showed her impressive acting skills, from being bubbly to being emotional, the Red Velvet member proves that she is now ready to give it her all as she steps forward in a new journey of becoming an actress.
