Preview trailers for Joseon X-Files

It was with disappointment that I realized that the sci-fi period drama Joseon X-Files (aka Secret Investigation Record) wasn’t premiering today, but rather next week. Dagnabit! Not gonna lie, I am anticipating this drama a wee bit (or maybe a lot) more than I should. (Not that I’m expecting it to be bad, but cable programs can be erratic, quality-wise, and this one in particular is a bit of a fusion experiment.)

Two previews are out, and they’re short and to the point. They also look pretty great, in my humble opinion. A strange flying object is seen and recorded, but for some reason the incident is covered up by the royal court. Kim Ji-hoon sets out to uncover the truth, and along the way encounters a shadowy secret organization headed by the mysterious Kim Gab-soo.

The premise is very clear-cut and we can probably anticipate some of the big plot points (especially since the drama seems to be hewing so close to the American X-Files), but for a k-drama this mix is intriguing. I also really like Kim Ji-hoon, and have truthfully been a bit disappointed in his choices; he hasn’t lived up to my expectations for him since first seeing him in Flowers For My Life, but I like that he’s taken this project. Fingers crossed!

Both Episodes 1 and 2 will air next Friday, August 20, on cable channel tvN.

Here’s trailer #1:

 
In the second clip, the first title screen tells us that a strange object was seen in the sky. Kim Ji-hoon wonders what “they’re” up to, then Kim Gab-soo warns him to stop inquiring. The second title screen reads, “The one who tries to cover up the truth / The one who tries to reveal the truth.” Kim Ji-hoon then demands, “The people of an entire village have disappeared. What the hell are you hiding?!”

I'm really looking forward to this... but now I'm worried it might be too scary for me (I couldn't watch the X-Files by myself). I'll have to watch in daylight unless I can rope someone else in to watch with me.

I love that they are making this. It is so original in thought.
Even though there are other nations that have had sightings in their history, I think this is the first attempt to write it in a drama like this anywhere.
