The clone face-off begins in Duel posters
OCN is stepping into the thriller battle of summer with its human clone drama Duel, which stars Jung Jae-young (Assembly) as a veteran detective struggling to find his kidnapped daughter. Kim Jung-eun (Oohlala Spouses) plays an ambitious elite inspector who finds the big clue of the case, and Yang Se-jong (Saimdang—Light’s Diary) stars as the two cloned men who are divided between good and evil.
The two posters show a nice comparison between the two clones. The first poster shows the five main characters (including Seo Eun-soo) at a subway station, with the two clones facing off. I love how they styled the two clones, and how Yang Se-jong embodies their different personas. If I didn’t know they were the same person, I would assume they cast two actors who looked similar. It is truly amazing how style and presence can transform a person.
The second poster is more intense, with Jung Jae-young gripping one of the clones by the collar while looking back at the other. I love how they made the poster vertical while the photo remains horizontal, which feels jarring in an intriguing way. The poster’s copy reads, “On the day my daughter disappeared, I saw two men who looked exactly the same.”
In the first poster I’m left wondering which clone is the good one and which is the bad, but the second poster seems to indicate that the bad guy is the clean and tailored clone. Moreover, I’m curious to know what the relationship is between Jung Jae-young and the clone he is gripping.
It looks like the summer will be filled with plenty of thrillers with Forest of Secrets, Circle, and Lookout all set to air soon. Look for OCN’s Saturday-Sunday clone thriller Duel to start its run on June 3.
