tvN's The Midnight Romance in Hagwon, starring Jung Ryeo Won and Wi Ha Joon, dropped a new teaser. 

The Midnight Romance in Hagwon tells the story of star lecturer Seo Hye Jin (Jung Ryeo Won) and her cheeky student Lee Jun Ho (Wi Ha Joon), whom she helped get into a prestigious university ten years earlier. The K-drama is set against the backdrop of Daechi, a neighborhood known as the heart of hagwons (private educational institutions) in South Korea.

The teaser commences with showing Lee Jun Ho, Seo Hye Jin's former student and pride, unexpectedly resigning from a large corporation and returning to Daechi-dong as an academy instructor. Seo Hye Jin, who can't bear to see her cherished student heading down a difficult path, desperately tries to stop him. Despite her warning that "from now on, everyone besides yourself will attack or use you," Lee Jun Ho calmly responds, "Does that mean you will too?"

Thus, the relationship between the two begins to change. Student Lee Jun Ho becomes teacher Lee Jun Ho, and teacher Seo Hye Jin becomes just Seo Hye Jin. 

Seo Hye Jin, with a mixture of excitement and hesitation, finds herself smiling at the unexpected change in her monotonous life. 

The Midnight Romance in Hagwon will premiere on May 11. More news about the K-drama's global OTT streaming service is yet to come. Watch the teaser here.
