Greed and crime drive financial thriller Golden Cross

The first poster’s out for KBS’s Golden Cross, and it looks pretty sleek. It also sort of looks like Kim Kang-woo is hugging himself (and Lee Shi-young), but overall the broken visual effect is kinda cool. The copy on the poster reads: “0.001% of greed, 100% of crimes, 1% of evidence.” It’s mathy, but I’ll forgive them for it.

While I still don’t quite have a handle on this show is going to be tonally, the poster certainly does fit the description of a revengey thriller about money and stocks. (And honestly, that’s a description that actually gets me excited, especially with the Kim Kang-woo association, since I absolutely loved Story of a Man—that was a money-driven caper-thriller that managed to be sleek, fun, and thoughtful all in one.)

The conflict of Golden Cross centers around a shadowy society (called the Golden Cross, natch) that dominates the economy and marketplace with its deep connections and deeper pockets. The hero gets entangled into their dealings when one of their plots gets his beloved sister murdered… by the man whose daughter he then falls for. Bummer. Then again, the daughter has a righteous and truth-seeking personality as a top prosecutor (the hero’s one too), which means that perhaps the conflict will lie equally with her—after all, she’s the one with the crooked father (played by Jung Bo-seok). She grows up respecting and following him, but the revelation of his dark side throws her life into disarray.

Eom Ki-joon, meanwhile, takes on a villain’s role—he’s a businessman overflowing with greed and ambition, and while he was once taught by Jung Bo-seok, now he’ll go up against him as challenger. I’ll look forward to that clash of wills, fortunes, and egos.

Golden Cross follows Age of Feeling and will premiere next Wednesday, April 9.

I instantly thought of the movie wallstreet while reading this. Wonder if the story lines are similar.

Normally I'd be saying "Lee Shi Young and Han Eun Jung are hot, so I'll give it a shot", but I'm more excited for Kim Kang Woo, Eom Ki Joon and Jung Bo Seok.

Jung Bo Seok in a villainous role is always worth watching to me after seeing him in Giant.

The most exciting match-up might be Jung Bo Seok and Eom Ki Joon. I dig.

It's been awhile since I last saw Lee Shi Young on screen, last time I remember she was still doing boxing? Maybe those skills might come in handy with this role.

Excited with this cast tho!

Shi-Young! Shi-Young!

"I luv boxzhing, boxzhing."

If she doesn't box, maybe she can wrestle someone in the mud somewhere.

I laughed out loud with your "boxzhing" it reminded me of "taxzhi." Am not sure if I spelled that correctly ;)

I'm just spelling it the way Suk Jin pronounced it. And he even got Shi Young to sing along.

I think this is KBS's opportunity to get a big hit since Three Days' ratings are not that huge (if they don't manage to screw it up as usual)

I'd be more excited for this if it wasn't for the Gaksital writer, but maybe having a drama that doesn't have to follow an existing story will make the difference.

This is where "Giving it 101.0001% effort"comes from.

What do you mean it's not a thing?
