Defeating evil with Kim Nam-gil in new teaser for TVING’s Island
Kim Nam-gil! Fighting! In a suit! Am I sold? Most undoubtedly. TVING’s upcoming drama Island provides us a really distinct appear at Jeju Island — its serene landscape is nowhere to be noticed right here, and is replaced alternatively by dark and barren terrain. It is the handiwork of evil demons, who are bloodthirsty for death and destruction.
Major the fight by means of the darkness (heh) is our hero Ban, played by Kim Nam-gil (By way of the Darkness). He’s human, but not pretty — as an immortal becoming, Ban has been tirelessly guarding the planet from ill-intentioned spirits for thousands of years.
Lee Da-hee (Enjoy is for Suckers) joins him as Won Mi-ho, a third-generation chaebol and higher college teacher. By way of a serendipitous run-in with Ban, Mi-ho finds herself encountering ghouls for the 1st time in her life. Rounding out our key trio is Cha Eun-woo (Accurate Beauty) as Yo-han, a young exorcist priest who’s renowned for his exceptional capabilities.
The drama’s 1st teaser provides us an thrilling appear at all the action to come, total with CGI weapons and hissing monsters. These glowing eyes definitely appear menacing, but our heroes are not the least bit cowed. Without the need of missing a beat, Mi-ho levels her gun at an unseen enemy, Yo-han conjures up what appears like a lightsaber from thin air, and Ban wields an intricately carved dagger that also capabilities on our drama’s 1st poster.
Interestingly, there’s a split second of Ban performing some sort of hand sign — I wonder if he has some sort of supernatural energy, maybe linked to his immortality? That appears like it would complement Yo-han, whom we see performing an exorcism in a candlelit area.
Our trio may perhaps not be the most most likely alliance, offered how distinct their backgrounds are: Mi-ho’s sophisticated elegance definitely does not mesh with varsity-jacket-wearing, face-bandage-sporting Yo-han. But if 1 thing’s for specific, it is their resolve to purge the planet of evil. As the teaser draws to a close, Ban provides the camera a confident smirk, as if difficult any foe to take him on if they dare.
Primarily based on the webcomic of the exact same name, Island is directed by Park Bae-jong (Fabricated City) with scripts written by Oh Bo-hyun. The 12-episode TVING drama is set to air in December.
