‘Youth of May’, a Korean drama, recently aired a scene that was similar to the iconic ‘Palat’ scene from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s 1995 film ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’. The K-drama features Lee Do-Hyun, Go Min-si, in the lead roles.
In the show's fourth episode, the lead couple says goodbye to each other in the night. As she walked away from him, the actor hoped that she would turn back. 'Look back, look back,' he chanted as she continued to walk before she came to a halt, turned to look at him. Surprised, he confessed to her that he was saying 'look back' in his mind and she 'looked back'.
The scene takes everyone to the famous ‘palat’ scene from the 1995 movie in which Shah Rukh Khan’s character Raj hoped that Simran, played by Kajol, would look back at him before she boarded her train if she loved him.
