Kim Kang-woo searches for memories and a murder in Circle’s new teaser

Upcoming sci-fi mystery drama Circle has released another cryptic, intriguing teaser featuring one of the main characters, played by Kim Kang-woo (Goodbye Mr. Black). The story takes place in two timelines—2017 and 2037—with Yeo Jin-gu (Jackpot) playing a college student in the present when aliens arrive on Earth, and Kim Kang-woo playing a police detective in the future where the world has been divided into two territories: utopian “Smart Earth” and another “Ordinary Earth” that’s still filled with suffering.

I can’t say that it’s a very informative teaser, but the landscapes shown are so breathtakingly shot that it made me feel like I was watching a clip from a nature documentary. It starts with Kim Kang-woo’s back to us while he faces the seaside with large crashing waves and tension-building music in the background. Then the scene switches to a green moss-covered woodland, with eerie bird calls being heard. And the scene switches again and again like he’s searching the desolate Earth for a clue or a pattern.

Kim Kang-woo’s voiceover says: “In a world where emotions have been eradicated, there’s been a murder that should not have occurred.” Flashes of a burnt evidence case file and of someone in a gas mask go by. Perhaps they’re Kim Kang-woo’s own memories because at the end, he thinks to himself, “Wait for me. I will remember.”

Monday-Tuesday alien dystopia drama Circle will begin airing May 22 on tvN.

tvN's dramas may not be faring very well ratings-wise atm, but their cinematography has always been top notch. I'm excited for this to air.

Cool teaser! I am always amazed at how much passion and attention Production House puts into making Kdramas, mostly ones in tvN. What's sadden me was when rating flops and the projects might not end up profitable. Or even worse, if the network will no longer pick up these kind of projects in the future.

After reading suicide related news in production house which going broke, i don't roll my eyes so much on PPL. I just hope it's enough for them to keep going and giving us these kind of shows.

Wow, I can already feel the sci-fi vibe with this cinematography! Breathtaking.
Hope everything else is as amazing and that this drama doesn't disappoint. I'm really anticipating it.

But...Am I the only one who thinks that glass house looks like the Louvre?

I agree with the comments above the cinematography is very pretty to look at. The only drama I have seen Kim Kang-Woo in was Missing Noir M and I enjoyed it. Also Yeo Jin-Goo is in this show so that is another plus. I am looking forward to this one the most from the upcoming dramas.

The teaser looks SO good! I could already feel the mysterious vibe of this drama! BTW, is Yeo Jingoo the one in the last cut? The one holding the burning evidence? Kim Kangwoo was seen holding the already burnt papers, but on the last part someone's holding it while burning... The hair looks similar to Jingoo's. And the poster is also out as well! And it looks great~ https://twitter.com/JANUS_ENT/status/856655937884397569

At first I was kinda disappointed because looks like OCN not gonna continue Missing Noir: M. I love it, and the ending looks like a promise for a sequels, you know Vampire Prosecutor style.
But now I see this teaser and find myself waiting for the first episode to come.
Circle sounds like Upside Down when they said 2 territories, but I wish it wouldn't end up like the latter because I think that movie is a mess.

The cinematography and the visuals aside, it doesn't excite me. I've seen enough melancholy in TVN already.

The color palette, if you will, is certainly contributing to that dreary, mysterious vibe.
