A tape-recorded warning teases thriller Forest of Secrets
The first teaser for upcoming mystery-thriller drama Forest of Secrets is out, with two more months left to go until its first broadcast. Bae Doo-na (Tunnel, Sense8) and Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift—14 Days) star as a righteous police investigator and a coldly logical prosecutor who pair up to solve a case about a strange string of murders. From the teaser, it looks like powerful hidden political forces may be involved.
Ominous music builds tension in the background, while a tape recorder with a cassette dated June 2017 plays Bae Doo-na’s voice: “I think it’s a warning not to pry anymore.” A man replies on the tape, “Those who give bribes, and those who take them—I’m going to catch them no matter what.” Then in two brief cuts, we see Jo Seung-woo, whose voiceover says, “The manipulated truth,” and Bae Doo-na, who thinks, “Everyone is a suspect with a motive.”
The cast for Forest of Secrets is being headed by some of the top actors in Hallyu, with anticipation high for Bae Doo-na, who has mostly transitioned into the film industry. Her last drama (Gloria) was seven years ago, while Jo Seung-woo has also been way from TV screens for two years. But I’m also looking forward to seeing Lee Jun-hyuk (Naked Fireman), Shin Hye-sun (Legend of the Blue Sea), and Yoon Se-ah (Eve’s Love), who are some underrated gems who are usually seen in weekend family or daily dramas.
Forest of Secrets will premiere on tvN this coming June.
