More teasers for Memories of the Alhambra
Anticipation is high for Memories of the Alhambra, but the show has been very stingy with details of its storyline. Fortunately for us, they’ve been generous with teasers and two new videos have been released. Hyun Bin (Swindlers) is the CEO of an investment firm in Granada on business and Park Shin-hye (Doctors) operates a small hostel tucked away in one of the city’s alleyways. A peculiar event brings the pair together and they embark on an adventure full of romance and suspense.
One version is from Park Shin-hye’s point of view. The teaser begins with her narrating, “Today, a magical miracle happened in my life.” We see her running after a train in the evening, with Hyun Bin at the same station during the day. There are various cuts of Park looking teary, and as the teaser closes we hear Hyun Bin say, “The story begins here. From arriving in Granada.”
The second teaser is from Hyun-bin’s point of view and we can see a bit of the fantasy element of the drama come into play. The video starts with shots of the city limits. We see Hyun Bin crouching on a cobblestone street when, in the distance, out of the mist appears a knight in armor astride a horse. Hyun Bin stands in amazement and as the frame pulls out we can see that the knight has several arrows sticking out of his back. We see Hyun Bin lying on the cobblestone street and the teaser ends with him saying, once again, “The story begins here. From arriving in Granada.”
I’m no closer to figuring out how these two meet but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t dying to know what unfolds between them. Memories of the Alhambra will premiere in December and will air on Saturdays and Sundays on tvN.
