Hacker, lawyer, and Lookout team up for vigilante justice
Yay! MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Lookout has released more stills, which is great because I’d been thinking that the promo for this drama was a bit too quiet. Starring Lee Shi-young (Valid Love) and Kim Young-kwang (The Man Living in Our House), this action-thriller is about how a group of vigilante warriors take charge when the inherently corrupt political landscape of South Korea prevents justice from being carried out through the proper legal channels.
Lee Shi-young plays a police investigator who joins the vigilante organization when her daughter is brutally murdered, while ambitious lawyer Kim Young-kwang has his own hurtful past that leads him to the organization. A couple cuts of Kim Young-kwang and of his potential rival, a righteous lawyer played by Kim Tae-hoon (Fantastic) have been released.
The most recent images show Kim Seul-gi (Second to Last Love) who plays a hikkikomori, a painfully shy person who avoids other people. And the way she’s cautiously opening the door like a monster’s going to come out at any moment just tells me that the actress has gotten this role down pat. Her character is severely antisocial, but at the same time highly tech-savvy, leading her to engage with the world through a strange medium: CCTV.
Yup, that’s right, she’s the one who knows if you went ten over the speeding limit or were making out in the elevator. For the vigilante organization, she’ll be providing the much-needed role of surveilling the entirety of South Korea and finding out all the dirty little secrets of its movers and shakers. Shinee’s Key (Drinking Solo), who can also been seen in the stills below, is a genius hacker who works alongside Kim Seul-gi for the organization. I don’t know if there could be a loveline for the two of them, but I’d be totally onboard if there is.
Lookout begins airing on MBC starting May 22.
