Both Hong Cheon Gi and Ha Ram are blind; however, Hong Cheon Gi recovered her eyesight whereas Ha Ram has not (and may not). Did I get that correct? I guess that explains AHS's eyes in the teaser. I didn't look into the synopsis at the time I watched it and thought there must be more to it. Thanks for creating this thread!!

@mademoiselle teaser looks good. Hmmm tempting.

@stroppysecan trouble you to translate if you have time?

Yes! It looks really good - well ok, Ahn Hyo Seop looks really good :lmao2: Think if you wait a bit, YT SBS Now may have English version (I've replaced with YT version above now that it is out).

You will. No matter what Asians are the one who watch more Kdramas than Westerners.

Yeah, I can only watch if they upload on iQIYI or TencentVideo. Otherwise, I have to either watch on a third party website or wait until they are available through the streaming services I have. Everything should just be on Netflix, right?! But I supposed that would put Viki and the other streaming platforms out of business if everything released is on Netflix. :laugh:

 

The trailer looks amazing! I'm super excited for this now. No release date yet?

Kim Yoo Jung & Ahn Hyo Seop become entangled in a fantasy love story in 1st teaser for SBS's 'The Red Sky'
Source

A stunning new fantasy historical romance to steal your hearts, SBS's 'The Red Sky' is finally coming at the end of this month!

 

Starring Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop, 'The Red Sky' tells the story of two destined lovers and their intertwined fates. Kim Yoo Jung plays the role of a talented artist named Hong Chun Gi, while Ahn Hyo Seop takes on the role of a man who can read the stars, Ha Ram.

 

In the first teaser for the drama series, Ha Ram instantly catches the attention of viewers with his glowing red eyes, as he mysteriously states, "Even if I loved you, I am already a dead man." The teaser then fades to glimpses of Hong Chun Gi and Ha Ram's encounters both in the past and present, as Ha Ram asks, "Did you wait for me?", and Hong Chun Gi answers, "I can never forget you."

 

Also starring Gong Myung, Kwak Si Yang, and more, SBS's 'The Red Sky' is coming to the small-screen this August 30 at 10 PM KST! Will you be watching the emotional fantasy romance?
