Revenge drama Shark’s character posters

Aw, does the vengeance mastermind need a hug? A snuggle wasn’t really the concept I was expecting when KBS released the character posters for its revenge thriller Shark, but hey, every wronged-hero-turned-mysterious-avenger needs to cry on somebody’s shoulder, right? The new Monday-Tuesday drama is gearing up to premiere in just over a week, and even though I’m still not convinced it’s not Bad Guy all over again, I guess I won’t really care as long as it’s Bad Guy: Bigger, Better, Badder.

The revenge melodrama from the team behind Resurrection and The Devil stars Kim Nam-gil as a successful hotelier with a Japanese alias, adoptive father, and naturally, a secret past. Sohn Ye-jin is the heiress to — you guessed it — a hotel conglomerate, and the daughter of the family who ruined Kim Nam-gil’s life. He spends years becoming rich and powerful as a rival hotelier, and then returns to Korea to begin his revenge plot against the family. Of course the wrench is that he falls in love with her and has to choose between love and his blackened, revenge-filled heart.

Ha Suk-jin plays the second lead, the sharp up-and-comer at the heroine’s family company, who’s always loved her from afar. Aw, Ha Suk-jin plays that type so well — the sad puppy who doesn’t get the girl. He’s got a bit of a past to hide too, though it’s not nearly as bad as the hero’s second identity. Everyone assumes he’s a wealthy, over-educated executive, when he actually comes from a humble background, and even spent his teenage years as a gangster.

To add history to injury, all three of them share a past, and the heroine was both boys’ first love. Of course she was. Because loving someone just the once is never quite fated enough. The setup is nothing new, but here’s hoping that the execution keeps the thrills thrilling and the revenge served cold.

Shark follows God of the Workplace and premieres May 27 on KBS.

I'm about to go there but Ivoire gets on my nerves. If he didn't get first comment then he comments on someone who did and the worst part is that its a stupid comment just so he can be on the top on the page. Honey unless you got someone important to say, just stop. Sorry if I'm the only one who feels this way but I figure i'll voice my opinion now then forever hold my peace.

Yes, please do (hold your peace, I mean).

This is 2013, I think most people on here would have learned how to use the scroll function if they don't like someone's comments.

This drama has all the cliches in the world. What is with kdrama and fated first love? Of course, they have met sometimes in their life before, of course.

If I had to guess the story based on the first poster it would go something like this..."Simple minded man falls in love with his own sister while stranded on a deserted island. Both are rescued and try to cope with the fact they are lovers...and siblings. Or are they???"

Yes, why does he have this slack-jawed, open-mouthed blank look on his face? Is there a knife sticking out of his back, just outside the frame? Or did someone tie his shoelaces together?

It's getting to the point that I actually look forward to the childhood section in almost any given dramas these days.

They seem to be better acted, more age appropriate and absolutely adorable together. OTP or first love scenarios.

That drama was actually a pretty good one imo .Even though the ending was pretty shitty,It still had some of the best cinematography,directing,and acting i've seen in a kdrama.Oh plus an awesome second male lead(I actually ended up only watching the drama for his character)It's Just that the last 4 episodes were a complete and utter failure but other than that the drama was pretty good.If for no other reason watch it for the second lead,totally worth it.

It's not the fact of there being no happy ending that I minded, it's how obviously rushed and sloppy it was. Bad Guy was great up to that point - kept me guessing, and kept me interested in the characters, and even Han Ga-in for once in her life did not suck.

THAT's where I'd seen it before! It looked so familiar, I started googling around at posters for recent dramas (I even looked at the poster for The Drama That Must Not Be Named, but no, they were actually laughing and hugging in that poster ...what false advertisement...) but couldn't find it. Thanks for setting my mind at ease, LOL

Anyone else think the shots with his head on her chest look super awkward? Like he's way hunched over and his face is kinda glued to her or something? It just looks really uncomfortable and unnatural to me.

In my opinion, any rooftop with the green paint is always the same, although the inside is a stage one, not a real house.

NOOOOOO. Why is Ha Suk Jin ALWAYS second lead??? At least in the dramas where I sooo badly want him to be first lead? I recently marathoned Hello Miss! and I was so sad he didn't get the girl...even though I also like the first male lead. GAH. I have no opinion of Kim Nam Gil but WHY drama gods, can we make Ha Suk Jin first lead with an actress I love?? And I do love Son Ye Jin lol.
