The two faces of Yoon Kye-sang in JTBC’s Last
JTBC, you are killing me with your Last teasers. Omgah, what will it take for you to make some that actually move??
Sure, they look slick and cool and thriller-esque, I’ll give you that on the style front… but basically, every teaser has been just a collection of stills set to music. No moving people! Are we sure this is a drama and not, say, a fancy cable-station slideshow? Most expensive Powerpoint presentation ever?
The plot of action noir series Last sounds plenty intriguing, so I’m dying for the previews to actually do something with the fund-manager-turned-homeless-man protagonist (played by Yoon Kye-sang, who’s working a nice smolder) who descends into the underbelly of Seoul. There, he faces off against all sorts of unsavory types, including the underworld boss played by Lee Beom-soo, and what ensues is a vicious battle involving 100 million won. But can you get any of that from the videos? Not even a little.
In the teaser below, the text reads, “To get out of this hell, I’ll make it to the top of hell!”
Last is directed by PD Jo Nam-gook of The Chaser and Empire of Gold and written by Han Ji-hoon of blockbuster film Taegukgi and action thriller drama Time of Dog and Wolf. The series will be JTBC’s next Friday-Saturday drama and premieres in July.
