Spooked in the dark in latest Rescue Me teaser

In the latest teaser for OCN’s new original series Rescue Me, the group of young hillbillies led by Taecyeon (Bring It On, Ghost) embodies the copy that flashes across the screen: “Hot-blooded country bumpkins save the cult world.” This upcoming psychological thriller will tell the story of how they fight against a local religious cult in order to rescue a girl from its fanatic clutches.

Based on a web comic called Out of the World, this drama will feature unemployed youths who laze around in their small hometown not doing much until they realize that their first love, played by Seo Ye-ji (Hwarang), may be in danger. They set out to rescue her from a creepy religious cult led by Jo Sung-ha (The K2).

Taecyeon plays the “good boy” who is also a bit of a dunce. His crew of boys includes: stubbornly independent friend Woo Do-hwan (The Man Living in Our House), the ultimate tacky bumpkin Lee David (Bring It On, Ghost), and the strong boy who loves to eat Ha Hwe-jung.

They all walk through the dark forest together in the teaser, braving the scary woods with nothing but flashlights. One voice among them says that they should stop, because they could all be killed. Taecyeon disregards him completely, calling him an idiot. The first boy tries again, saying that maybe they should tackle things they’re capable of handling.

But Taecyeon interjects, asking since when have they started parsing details before charging headfirst into anything. He shines a light onto an impending gate in the middle of the woods that’s engraved with the phrase: “Board the ship of salvation and be whole.” Then he says that once they cross this, it really won’t be a game anymore.

Despite only having heard their voices bantering back and forth in this teaser, I’m really liking the easy, playful brotherly camaraderie I can sense amongst the group. If they can interject some humor and levity into the psychological thriller, I can see this drama potentially being one to watch this summer.

OCN’s Saturday-Sunday drama Rescue Me will premiere August 5.

I'm crossing my fingers that this will be good, because it definitely piqued my interest the second I first read about it!

I never say no to a bromance and if can uplift the obvious heavy and dark mood of the drama I will be over the moon. My expectations are growing at each teaser and info we get. Please don't let me down!

Religious cult?? That already creeps me out. But I'm in! It looks interesting and it's also Taec's last drama before serving the military. I grew a bit fond of him after Ghost, I felt he was decent enough compared to his previous terrible gigs.

Oh, Taec! You've been improving slowly but at least improving...

I think the roles that he is being put in have been closer to his real personality and easier for him to fit in to as well. Nice guy but a bit of a dunce sounds about right. XD Hoping for the best in this drama!

I like Taecyeon, but I'm surprised how quickly I've gotten over him. After Let's Fight Ghost I felt like he needed a stronger more nuanced show. Cute looks can get you so far in these shark infested waters of male leads. I really hope that this show does him well, and he does well by this show. He really needs a good one to leave a positive lasting impression before he heads off for military service.

When I hear about a drama's synopsis before the drama airs, I often don't find them new and interesting. After the drama airs though, my opinion changes. But for this drama I find the story super interesting and unfortunately Taekyeon and Soe Ye Ji are the leads. I really don't know what to do... to watch or not to watch...

I hope that it would be good. I love psychological thriller and I only have one/two dramas which I'm currently on. Sigh.

This sounds interesting and I imagine Jo Sung-ha will be good as the cult leader. The promo pics are showing him with blond hair!

Taec! I like this guy. Show seems right up his alley. If they tnrow in a bit light comedy amidst the suspense thriller the trailer is hinting at, I can deal with this show. I can't deal if it will be too dark but it would be good for Taec to show us his range as an actor.
