Ji Chang-wook finds someone to protect in mysterious K2 teasers
Cable channel tvN has released three new teasers for The K2, giving us a small taste of what to expect in the upcoming action-romance drama. After Ji Chang-wook made such a strong impression as the wonderful Healer, I was a bit worried that his The K2 persona could turn into Healer 2.0, especially since both characters are defined as highly-trained combat experts. I’m happy to report that we have reason to be cautiously optimistic. The newly released teasers set up Ji Chang-wook to give off a more serious and tragic vibe in The K2, especially in the one where he says: “I lost my love. I thought I lost everything, but I found someone I want to protect.”
He plays a bodyguard, hired by a presidential candidate’s wife, played by Song Yoon-ah (Assembly). Presumably, that’s how he gets to know our leading lady, Yoon-ah ( Prime Minister and I) who is the hidden illegitimate daughter of the presidential candidate. In one of the featured teasers, she sits in a red cocktail dress, burning what seems to be a photo while thinking, “If Dad becomes president, do I have to die? I really don’t want to.”
In Song Yoon-ah’s teaser, her husband, played by Jo Sung-ha (Neighborhood Hero), says in voiceover, “Choi Yoo-jin-sshi, if I don’t become president, you’re nothing—you know that, right?” She answers, “You will become president, because I’m going to make it happen.”
And in an earlier teaser, Ji Chang-work speed-drives in reverse, as the scene cuts to Song Yoon-ah sitting in front of a full-length mirror. She has a group of attendants nearby but they’re facing away from her, and the shadows suggest that something is off. Then, we see a completely white room with Yoon-ah in a white dress. Is he coming to save her? Or has he been given an order by the presidential candidate’s wife to kill her?
It looks like we won’t find out until Ji Chang-wook’s Friday-Saturday tvN drama, The K2, starts airing on September 23.
