Mystery-thriller drama Gap-dong’s main posters

Gap-dong sure is going for the sinister factor, isn’t it? Not that a show about a serial killer should be aiming for something else, but they’re definitely piling on the dark and disturbing with their main poster and the character posters (which are essentially the same thing).

As we saw in the previews for the show, they’re using a police sketch as the stand-in for Gap-dong, the drama’s long-dormant killer who waits twenty years before coming back to strike again. Hence the look of fierce determination on the face of our lead, detective Yoon Sang-hyun, who vows to nab the criminal this time. I’d say the stark drawing is a nice touch, since the feeling of anonymity adds to the idea of an unknown killer hiding out in plain sight… though I will say that that outright creepiness of Lee Joon comes in pretty close on the twisted scale; he looks downright thrilled and calls Gap-dong his hero.

The posters continue the theme set in the character teasers, with each character reacting to Gap-dong’s return with a variation on “So you were alive all these years”—some are afraid, some are furious, and others are welcoming (shudder). The words written backwards (styled like a finger writing in a dusty window) read “I am the real Gap-dong.” Eek.

So we’ve heard about Yoon Sang-hyun playing the man whose father was wrongly accused of being Gap-dong, who grew up and became a cop largely driven by this injustice. Then we have Sung Dong-il as the original detective on the case. And now here’s Kim Min-jung playing a psychiatrist with a two-sided personality: Wearing her doctor’s gown, she’s clean-faced and treats patients with kindness. Once the gown is off, she turns mysterious and glamorous, piling on the smoky makeup and keeping everyone at a cool distance.

Lee Joon is the genius barista (…erm) with the freaky hero worship of the murderer, who looks normal enough on the outside but hides his dangerous psychopath tendencies. Last but not least, Kim Ji-won is a teenage webtoon writer who gets kidnapped by the killer, and her webtoons become clues about future murders.

Gap-dong will premiere on April 11, airing Friday and Saturday nights on tvN.

I need this like right now!

The posters look great and Joon kind of creeps me out (again) xD I hope he gets to to a rom-com someday because I just can't with him playing creepy despicable guys...though he does it pretty well.

I am all in for the darkness that will be this drama though that means that I will need a LOT of funny stuff to live through God's Gift, Three Days and this one xD

Two words: Bloodly brilliant.
The posters are giving me the chills, especially Lee Joon's. Never knew that this idiot could look so creepy/awesome. Really looking forward to Gap-dong now.

Kim Ji-won! <33333333333

(in a different drama I'd wish for her to have a proper love line with Lee Joon, only with this character it would be kind of like Red Eye i.e. Wrongness Sexual Tension)

and I am so down with all these crime/serial killer-catching dramas, yessssss.......

Wow, I didn't even recognize Lee Joon! He's really milking that gleefully creepy expression, whoa. Also lmao at a genius barista.

I had no plans of watching this because crime shows (especially true crime ones) really creepy me out but it does look like it's shaping up to be good and TvN rarely disappoints...I might need to find a friend to watch it with though.

Gave me chills!

I love a good thriller because they're far more creepier and goose-bump inducers than your regular super natural elements like ghosts and no-neck zombies. I remember watching Ghost (ironic name LOL) with SJS and really feeling my hair go up because I was worried I'd randomly get a virus email that tells me I'll die soon lol.

Everyone looks in their element and even if I'm admittedly tired of action dramas since there are far too many floating around - I'll make this exception!

So the killer in real life was never caught? I don't know, kinda creeped out by this knowledge. It's one thing to watch a serial killer not get caught in a fiction drama, but this is about the real deal...

And woah i didn't recognize KMJ on the first poster.

Bleh, Yoon Sang Hyun. I've only watched him in rom-coms but his overacting grates my nerves. BUT must I say--he looks completely different with a buzz cut! Looks mysteriously handsome.

Awesome!! I am extremely excited.

It's GREAT seeing Kim Ji Won break away from here recent string of mean girl roles. Can't wait to see Lee Joon's acting and Yoon Sang Hyun's new hair in action as well.

The story is definitely something I can get into. The characters all seem compelling. But seeing as it it's also based on a true case (?) I hope it's approached sensitively, too.

Lee Joon looks like he belongs in Death Note, he gives off that vibe. I don't think I've ever in my short K-drama life ever watched something that didn't have romance at its center BUT I think this drama just may change all that. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for it.

try The Bridge/The Tunnel, or The Killing (Danish original) or even Prime Suspect, if you like older shows.
