The name La primera vez (The First Time) not only refers to the sexual awakening of young people, but also to the tension and explosion of emotions that first love means, according to El Tiempo.
The new Netflix series is set in the 1970s and tells the story of Camilo, a shy student who begins to have new feelings for Eva, the first woman to enter his all-male school.
Emmanuel Restrepo Zapata plays Camilo, a character that he himself described on social media as someone who "is built on dreams, his own, others' and borrowed, always longed for and gathered for a long time."
"Camilo is a dream character," he said.
A Colombian soundtrack
The official song for the series is performed by Colombians Manuel Medrano and Juliana Velásquez. It was written by both alongside Santiago Uribe, and is inspired by "the first times of teenagers."
"It was very exciting to have the opportunity to make music for a series for the first time and collaborate with such talented people, the Netflix team and all the people who made this possible, Thank you!" wrote Medrano in a social media post.
For her part, Velásquez said she hopes the audience "connects with our song and with this new super series that is crazy."
La primera vez will be available to stream on Netflix on Feb. 15.
