Lee Jun-ki’s bloody escape from the law in Two Weeks

Ooh, I like the first teaser for Lee Jun-ki’s man-on-the-run drama Two Weeks, getting ready to air on MBC. It’s action-packed, but broody and melancholy in tone. Best of all, it already has me interested in the character and wondering how he ended up this way.

In thirty seconds we get a quick capsule of the premise: Lee Jun-ki wakes up one day covered in blood, lying next to a dead body. (Talk about your rude awakenings.) He gets hauled away as the prime suspect, and meanwhile he’s just found out he has an eight-year old daughter he never knew about. Oh, and she’s dying. Suddenly the police car that’s taking him away crashes in an accident, and he sees his window of opportunity to flee.

He takes it, and narrates as he rides away: “For once in my life, just once, I want to live as a person.” It’s a great line to end on, because it immediately has me wondering about his past and why he’s thrown his life away. It also helps explain why his ex Park Ha-sun may have kept his daughter a secret all these years. Curioser and curioser.

The thing I’m looking forward to the most with this drama is the two-week timeframe for the whole story, which should keep it suspenseful and tightly wound all the way through. He not only has to run from the law to save his daughter, but figure out who framed him for murder, all while dodging assassins and prosecutors and cops. And stopping for the occasional artful brood, of course.

Two Weeks follows Queen’s Classroom and premieres August 7 on MBC.

I can't believe this managed to pass my radar for so long! The teaser only has me more intrigued.

...and may I say that Lee Jun-ki is looking FINE.

Riding a bike with tied hands: Chapeau!
I have to admit that he looks good on those pics, even with blood and strangulation marks.
The premise scares me (sick kiddo)... Will probably just read the recaps and watch if I have my happy ending.

Yep - hope it is tight tight tight all the way through - how many episodes?

Please let it be good because it's Lee Jun Ki which means I have to watch everything twice. Because it's Lee Jun Ki. You know.

apparently this is your first Kdrama lol

I've watched to many couples meeting honking buses to believe anyone is EVER safe in a Kdrama.

I wish all these new shows weren't so long. I remember when almost every show was only 16 eps. Now it seems all are 20-24 (atleast).

Makes it harder for me to watch 20+ dramas a year lol

LOL!!!!! They sure look good, don't they? Reminds me of QIHM, when Kim Boong Do was losing blood in front of the hospital. I have never seen a guy look that handsome.

Yes, 'blood', 'bruises' and 'scars' are normally the hero's ornaments.

my feelings exactly..I was scrolling down to comment on those cheekbones but you beat me to it!

However I will read recaps and decide whether to invest my time in watching it or not....happy ending preferable though!

Since the main story will take place within a two-week time frame, I wonder how many episodes the show will have (of course, there will be time devoted to flashbacks and back stories). Anyway, this looks interesting. I will have to watch it :)

Twenty?

Goodness.... this better be top-notch in the writing department, as I said, the whole plot is so film-like, they'll have to be real clever with all the filling.

Thank you. I hope that the twenty episodes are used wisely (i.e., without filler). :)

Kdrama sure is cost effective. I think 'Two Weeks' is using the same little girl with cancer as 'Monstar'. She didn't even get a new turban or jammies. If the character dies, they can use her as a ghost on 'Master's Sun'.

I don't think child actress Lee Chae Mi played in Monstar. That was a different girl.

Well, at least I know neither of them was the sick cute little girl from 'Mandate of Heaven.' She didn't have a cancer turban. Just a bad cough.

I'm hoping for fewer sick cute little girls in the next wave of dramas. It's confusing.

Well if dramaland is anything to go by then I can answer the question for you about his past...it's the painful kind! never mind what actually caused the pain, but isnt that always the bottom line ;)

Lee Junki is amazingly gifted as an actor. I love almost every single think that he is in. He is extremely handsome no matter what he is in... but... he is looking a teeeeeny bit thin here. I like all of his looks, and he looks interesting with sharper features, but I worry about his health also. Anyway. Great actor. Can't wait for his movies, dramas, etc.. etc.. Love'em all.

This is kinda random, but, if Korea ever made a "Death Note", Lee Jun Ki would play the perfect L. <3

This reminds me of Time Between Dog and Wolf again -- funny because Jung Kyung Ho is also doing his own drama, which ends right before Lee Jun Ki's starts!
How these two have come a long way...

...isn't that pretty much the summary for 'The Fugitive' tho?

I might usually have trouble watching with a clean slate when the role reminds me of an actor I really like (Harrison Ford was awesome on that movie!) but LJK can definitely break that trend.

I just saw the BTS above.

I hope the OTP have more chemistry than depicted in that BTS! Makes me worried. But then again, maybe 2 weeks isn't focused on the romance?

In your opinion, which actress has been his best match for onscreen chemistry so far???
