Guns loaded in Forest of Secrets teasers

We have a few more teasers for mystery-thriller drama Forest of Secrets starring Bae Doo-na (Tunnel, Sense8) and Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift—14 Days). Even with well over a month to go the production is not stingy in releasing information about the drama, which I can get used to.

In Forest of Secrets Bae Doo-na stars as Han Yeo-jin, who is touted as a warm-hearted and righteous police investigator. Jo Seung-woo plays Hwang Shi-mok, a clinically emotionless and logical prosecutor who is a bit of a lone ranger among his colleagues. The two join forces to solve a mysterious case about a string of murders that reek of widespread corruption inside the prosecutors’ office. The new teasers released are from Episode 0: Stranger.

The first teaser starts off showing various clips of Jo Seung-woo around the city. The music builds tension as it cuts to Bae Doo-na holding a gun on Jo Seung-woo, who doesn’t look alarmed. Bae Doo-na’s voiceover says, “Invented truth,” and Jo Sung-woo says, “Everyone is a suspect with a motive.”

The second teaser is a two-parter, starting with Jo Seung-woo walking through a fenced tunnel, away from what looks a prison. The voice over of an unknown man says, “I am being falsely accused. I didn’t kill anyone. It is all a lie. It is all a fraud.” Jo Seung-woo pauses and looks around, as his voiceover says, “Designed truth. Everyone is a suspect with a motive.”

The second part of the teaser focuses on Bae Doo-na, who loads a gun and holds it up as she advances on something. The voiceover of the man is the same as before, insisting on his innocence in the face of a truth that’s been invented. Her eyes are intense as she voices over, “Designed truth. Everyone is a suspect with a motive.”

The production quality looks wonderful for this drama. I love the clean cool undertones that are a nice contrast with the fast-paced tension. Jo Seung-woo looks like he’s pulling off the emotionless prosecutor look well while still preserving a sense of urgency. I love Bae Doo-na, so I’m looking forward to her fresh take on a detective.

Also, if the teasers are any indication, then I would say to expect a lot of couture fashion in this drama (which I am all for). I was all into the thriller aspect until I say Bae Doo-na in that last teaser; I was immediately left wondering where her outfit was from and if I could afford it. I know my mind should be on the mystery, but that outfit.

Forest of Secrets is a fully pre-produced drama and is set to premiere on tvN in June.

This looks much more noir than I thought it would.

I definitely agree with you on that Buhdoop. That jacket is giving me life!!!! I also love the open vulnerability and earnestness playing on her face in that second teaser, and the capable and does she pointed her gun. Sympathy and dogged efficiency. I love the juxtaposition. Definitely looking forward to when this show starts!

How can Bae Doona's skin be so clear and pretty *^*, but yes totally agree on the jacket. I hope there will be good PPL and fashion sense, and please for the love of god if there's gonna be Subway. Let it be a good one and not a repeat of some not to be named...

Bae Doo-na yassss *throws fangirl flowers* why are you so awesommmme. Also this show looks SICK. Looks like both of them should be intelligent detectives unraveling lie after lie to get to the truth. Just like I was for for Tunnel, I am PUMPED.

No, it's wrong. tvN used to put 'Ep.0' in Chicago Typewriter teaser titles. I think they don't know the meaning of 'Ep.0' or 'Ep.1'

A bit disappointed about cinematography. I mean, since it's a pre-produced drama, we can expected more right?

Can't wait to see this. I'm really interested in how these two work together.
I doubt it will be like other dramas where they do petty bickering. Gimme it. Gimme it now!!
