Getting mad and chasing facts for journalist drama Argon
Newsroom drama Argon, starring Kim Joo-hyuk (The Tooth and the Nail) and Chun Woo-hee (The Wailing), may only be eight episodes, but already I can see a huge mystery plot at its core, particularly in these new teasers.
In the first, Kim Joo-hyuk stands on a rooftop building with loose papers in his hands, and says grimly, “News is facts, you bastards.” Then he flings the papers into the air, and he yells the copy that comes onscreen: “News without facts is trash.”
The second builds more mystery, though it doesn’t give us much more information on the plot. What we know so far is that we have truth-seeking investigative journalists who work in an age of fake news to deliver fact-based news to the public. (Hmm… sounds a lot like another drama airing these days…) The teaser shows an enraged Kim Joo-hyuk demanding that someone bring him a taxi. He plays HBC network’s main anchor, who is extremely dedicated to evidence-based truth. A series of cuts show Chun Woo-hee pursuing something, digging through shredded papers for a banknote, knocking down a wall with a sledgehammer, and finding an item in a locker.
I’m not quite sure what all of this means, but I’m counting on Kim Joo-hyuk and Chun Woo-hee to deliver. The short Monday-Tuesday drama Argon begins on September 4 on tvN, following the end of Bride of the Water God 2017.
