Character posters for TVING’s Island introduce our most important players
TVING’s upcoming CGI-heavy fantasy Island has not too long ago dropped some stunning character posters for our most important players: Kim Nam-gil (Via the Darkness), Lee Da-hee (Appreciate is for Suckers), Cha Eun-woo (Correct Beauty), and Sung Joon (Best Wife). Although most of the fan excitement I’m seeing is about Kim Nam-gil (understandable) and Lee Da-hee (understandable), this drama also signifies Sung Joon is back! With gray hair. Properly, it has been a although.
Island is primarily based on a webtoon by the very same name and follows Ban (Kim Nam-gil), our immortal-however-human hero who’s been defending the planet from evil spirits for thousands of years with the well-known sword we see him wielding in the poster. In an exciting group-up, he’s joined in the fight by Won Mi-ho (Lee Da-hee), who’s a third-generation chaebol and higher college teacher — she’s also new to the planet of spirits and ghouls that Ban lives in. She’s also noted as the center of the fate that the story is about, so we’ll have to see how that plays out.
Subsequent up is our exorcising priest Yo-han/John (Cha Eun-woo) whose abilities are lauded and whose objective is to serve God’s mission and shield men and women from stated evil spirits. And ultimately, we have our gray-haired and ~mysterious~ Goong Tan (Sung Joon). Not becoming familiar with the webtoon, I’m not certain if he’s the villain however (please do not spoil this if you do know!), but he provides off some severe stone-cold vibes either way.
Island is directed by Park Bae-jong (Fabricated City) with scripts written by Oh Bo-hyun, and will premiere on TVING sometime in December.
