The first two episodes were released on March 29th, which showed us interesting pacing, built-up for each character, decent run-time (approximately 30 to 45 minutes per episode), excellent cinematography, a fantastic choice of soundtracks, together with the actors’ acting and oozing chemistry that shows mesmerizing tension between them. In addition, the directors shared a playlist of songs that were used as inspiration for creating this masterpiece — and you can tell that will lead us to a rollercoaster ride of emotions as the story unfolds in the following episodes. To sum up, it’s worth checking out and is a highly recommended series!

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: Ji Hyun (Oh Jun Taek) is a freshman at a university in Seoul. He comes from a small rural town and is used to living in the quiet countryside. He struggles to form meaningful relationships, and moving to the busy South Korean capital has left him feeling disorientated and confused. The older Jae Won (Lim Ji Sub), meanwhile, is now returning to Seoul – and the same university – after completing his mandatory military service. The duo starts to develop a mutual curiosity about one another. But things begin to escalate when Ji Hyun joins the same surfing club that Jae Won attends. Their bond begins to deepen as Ji Hyun discovers a love of surfing and the sea. When the surfing club embarks on a journey, the duo finds themselves together alone – and share a kiss. Later, though, Jae Won begins to act as if nothing happened between them. Is this just a fleeting attraction…or the love of a lifetime?

Catch the two new episodes every Thursday at 00:00 KST (Korean Standard Time) in selected regions on Rakuten Viki. Unfortunately, if you are residing in Southeast Asian countries, you will have to wait a little bit longer for a streaming platform to acquire its distribution rights.
