Hacker, lawyer, and Lookout team up for vigilante justice

Yay! MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Lookout has released more stills, which is great because I’d been thinking that the promo for this drama was a bit too quiet. Starring Lee Shi-young (Valid Love) and Kim Young-kwang (The Man Living in Our House), this action-thriller is about how a group of vigilante warriors take charge when the inherently corrupt political landscape of South Korea prevents justice from being carried out through the proper legal channels.

Lee Shi-young plays a police investigator who joins the vigilante organization when her daughter is brutally murdered, while ambitious lawyer Kim Young-kwang has his own hurtful past that leads him to the organization. A couple cuts of Kim Young-kwang and of his potential rival, a righteous lawyer played by Kim Tae-hoon (Fantastic) have been released.

The most recent images show Kim Seul-gi (Second to Last Love) who plays a hikkikomori, a painfully shy person who avoids other people. And the way she’s cautiously opening the door like a monster’s going to come out at any moment just tells me that the actress has gotten this role down pat. Her character is severely antisocial, but at the same time highly tech-savvy, leading her to engage with the world through a strange medium: CCTV.

Yup, that’s right, she’s the one who knows if you went ten over the speeding limit or were making out in the elevator. For the vigilante organization, she’ll be providing the much-needed role of surveilling the entirety of South Korea and finding out all the dirty little secrets of its movers and shakers. Shinee’s Key (Drinking Solo), who can also been seen in the stills below, is a genius hacker who works alongside Kim Seul-gi for the organization. I don’t know if there could be a loveline for the two of them, but I’d be totally onboard if there is.

Lookout begins airing on MBC starting May 22.

just a still of a girl slightly opening a door - yeah yeah she now is more perfect of a hikikomori than the real ones. And her descriptions gives no idea she actually is one. Anyone is portrayed recluse these days. Seul-gi looks good in that hoody.

He is okay for me, liked him in the stranger in our house. He reminds me of Jung Gyu-Woon in Dr. Champ/ Oh My Venus.

Me too but not because of his acting but because he once did a body shaming stunt in one of his interviews and I've been turned off to his projects ever since. Maybe I will tune into this drama for KSG.

I have a gut feeling Seulgi-ya's hikkikomori CCTV specialist will be v precious + the most relatable of the bunch. That and KTH's natural charisma in spite of the flopsy hairdo is proving casting directors are blind as to who deserve lead roles.

such an interesting turn for Kim Seul Gi and what a chance to evolve as an actress, till now she´s almost always played the bubbly and outgoing type. I hope she delves deep into it and tries to get the best experience.

Actually now that you mention it that's so true, she is acting as a character not in her usual range. Her acting chops are always good tho, so this will be a interesting character for her :D

She was also not the loud type in Queen of the Ring and she nailed it.

Is Shin Dong Wook still a lock for this drama? He was supposed to make his acting comeback in this but I see no mention of him here. Either way the plot sounds interesting enough that I'm considering checking it out if it gets positive reception. I'm particularly hoping for a great use of its set of characters. There's a lot of potential for meaty character exploration, so I'm hoping they will focus on that along with what will certainly be a flashy exposure of their abilities.

Kim Seul-Gi is baaaack, and she will be getting a meaty role to work with! This is gold!!!!! She's nailed all the characters I've seen her play so far: obsessed editor, lustful ghost, playful student and know I can't wait to see her antisocial hacker acting because I am sure as always she will knock it out of the park. Yassssssssss!

Kim Seul-gi! ♥

I haven't been paying attention to news about this drama and clicked through this post for her; my interest is further piqued by Key and Kim Tae-hoon. Mostly neutral about Lee Shi-young and Kim Young-kwang, as I have not seen their previous projects. I'll probably check out the first few episodes of this!

I love everyone EXCEPT Kim Young-kwang. I've never been a huge fan of his acting (I still find it very green even after all these years), however, the largest turnoff for me was reading an interview with him from 2013 where he stated that he does not like girls with thick calves.

I found that extremely superficial and as a person who DOES have thick calves and has had to learn to love her body and be proud of her strong legs, I did not appreciate that comment. It's now very difficult for me to watch his dramas without it leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

Agree. I can't bring myself to watch any of his works because of that douchebag comment (and I'm stick thin but that comment was infuriating) . His shallowness is a major turn off. Hope he's learnt his lesson because it's not like he's incredibly talented or even handsome to begin with...As for this drama, pass! See you in another project Seul Gi~ah ;)

They're really quiet because I missed the news about this drama.

If there will be a loveline between Seul-gi and Key, it will be Cristmas in summer. Really love Seul-gi in all her dramas. I definitely love Key since I saw him in Drinking Solo, well, I just love him for being the Almighty Key! ♡

Am liking the premise of underdog fight against the power that be, and since 2 of them are tech-savvy, would love seeing smart and sneaky geek power winning the game. At least they won't fail duplicating super important USB drives, right..?
Also loved everybody in the cast; bad-ass Lee Shi-young is always a treat, totally interested in seeing Key outside of goshiwon, and am still holding hope that Kim Tae-hoon will be in his rare role of a good guy. Have faith that Kim Seul-gi will be a great hikikomori. And Kim Young-kwang, damn, he might be a jerk in real life, but he kinda pulls me in as an actor; was memorable in Pinocchio, Plus Nine Boys and Gogh, The Starry Night. He was mighty fine in Gogh *sigh*

i love that we love kim seul gi. i'm still awaiting the day she gets the lead role in a full-length drama. until then, i can accept that she's building up her "drama cred" with the these shorter dramas and supporting roles. call me crazy but i recently went through the recaps of discovery of romance against just so i could get my ksg fill. hahahaha...
