A rainy, auspicious encounter in first teaser for Night Light
The first teaser and additional stills are out for MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Night Light, a story of three young and ambitious individuals ignited by their undying flame of greed in their pursuit of ultimate wealth and power.
Lee Yo-won (Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki) plays an elegant, “crystal-like” ice queen named Seo Yi-kyung. She changes the life of Lee Se-jin, played by UEE (Marriage Contract), a woman of humble beginnings who sets her sights on Yi-kyung’s life of luxury, eager to leave her dirt-poor past behind. Jin Gu (Descended from the Sun) plays Park Gun-woo, an upright, second-generation chaebol heir with a warm heart who loves Yi-kyung, his first love. But when Se-jin gets into the picture, and she starts resembling Yi-kyung more and more, things start to get complicated for him and the other two corners of the love/power triangle.
In a supporting role, Jung Hae-in (Yes, That’s How It Is) plays Tak, Yi-kyung’s reliable bodyguard. Yi-kyung spotted him when he was in his teens, and he’s protected her ever since. He has inside sources everywhere and can extract intel easily, sucking in information like a straw. He’s a chatterbox who knows every inch of Seoul with superior combat skills to boot.
In the teaser, a rain-drenched UEE stands before the vehicle of Lee Yo-won, who steps out with an umbrella and says, “You’ll catch a cold” before returning to her car, implying for UEE to hop in. Next, we see Jin Gu smile as he looks out the window of his corner office. UEE appears again, this time dry and looking hopeful as she looks up at the skyscraper before her. The teaser ends with Lee Yo-won’s the determined face and her soundbite: “Once I covet something, I don’t let go, whether it be clothing or people.”
A breadcrumb of a teaser, but a decent overview of the main characters at the center of an imminent power struggle fueled by greed. We’ll see how long Jin Gu’s smile lasts and whether or not Night Light will be a drama worth coveting.
Night Light premieres on November 21 after the end of Woman with a Suitcase.
