Building catastrophes and burning planes in Mad Dog
KBS’s Mad Dog already seems like it will be full of twists and turns. Yoo Ji-tae (The Good Wife) stars as the team leader of an insurance investigations team, who pursues his suspects with the tenacious determination of a mad dog (hur). In the newly released teaser, he’s shown following leads for various cases involving large-scale insurance fraud.
For instance, the teaser begins with the collapse of an entire building, which leads to mass panic, and Yoo Ji-tae asks, “Are you happy that you’re alive?” Later, a lone protester wears a sign that says: “Injured tenants were run out, but the building owners and construction companies profited from ten million won insurance payout despite the negligent construction. Does this make sense?”
When Yoo Ji-tae confronts a man regarding the incident, he smiles and insists that it wasn’t negligent construction work. A voiceover tells Yoo Ji-tae that he needs video evidence to prove his case. Yoo Ji-tae asks how much the insurance payout was, and the scene skips to a couple where the woman seems to be having a crisis of conscience. The man shakes her and demands that she get her head straight.
We see the genius computer whiz kid Kim Hye-sung (Falsify), who can even bring completely dead machines back to life, sitting at his cyber setup. Shots are shown of Jo Jae-yoon (Rescue Me), who plays an ex-convict and current insurance fraud investigator on Yoo Ji-tae’s team, leaving a hospital in disguise, and his Mad Dog teammate, sexy Ryu Hwa-young (Father Is Strange), sliding across a table. Contrary to his rough-looking outer appearance, Jo Jae-yoon is supposed be a loyal and polite man who has an innocent side to him, where he originally wanted to become a pediatric nurse because he loved children. And for some reason, he’s really passionate about cheetah print.
Meanwhile the copy reads: “A notorious case in Korea,” “A truth hidden by greed,” and finally “Find out the truth!” This is followed by pro con artist Woo Do-hwan’s (Rescue Me) chilling smile. He asks if this is all, and sinisterly asks if he may begin. He and Yoo Ji-tae have a series of tense, sometimes violent meetings, and Yoo Ji-tae asks if he’s supposed to be scared. The teaser ends in another tragedy: a plane crash-landing on a runway and going up in flames.
Hmmm, previous synopses seemed to indicate that Woo Do-hwan teamed up with Yoo Ji-tae to solve the crimes, but in this teaser they seem on opposite sides. Will we be seeing Woo Do-hwan as a criminal mastermind who tricks them all? Wednesday-Thursday crime drama Mad Dog begins on October 11.
