Teamwork gets colorful for the Lookouts
I’m digging the use of color and graphic overlays in these new character posters for Lookout, MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday action-thriller that features a motley group of citizens who decide to take action as vigilantes when the system fails them. Each main character has lost a loved one to a criminal, and when the authorities are unable to capture the culprits, these people decide to band together and use their own methods to mete out justice.
Lee Shi-young (My Beautiful Bride) plays Jo Su-ji, who is described on the poster as “A former violent-crimes detective, but also a fugitive who’s lost her daughter.”
Kim Young-kwang (The Man Living in Our House) is identified as Jang Do-han, a prosecutor who acts like a materialistic snob on the outside to cover up his vengeful heart underneath. His poster copy reads, “Nobody knows my true face, not even me…” He’s meant to be mysterious and hard-edged, which is the opposite of our other prosecutor, played by Kim Tae-hoon (Fantastic), shown smiling while his poster copy calls him “A pure-hearted passionate prosecutor that this era needs.”
Kim Seul-gi (Second to Last Love), meanwhile, looks intense as Seo Bo-mi, whose poster reads, “If I can just end this hell, I’ll do anything.” Bo-mi was once a bright, cheery high schooler, but after she was the victim of a crime, she became a withdrawn loner who lives like a recluse.
Last but not least, we have Shinee’s Key (Drinking Solo), looking rather mischievous as Gong Kyung-soo, a talented hacker who likes to skateboard and is blessed with a personable attitude and the ability to make friends instantly with people. His poster says, “This genius hacker can’t be left out of the lookouts.”
And at the very bottom, we have one last poster featuring a view of the city from above, and the copy reading, “The corrupt cannot become new or be made to repent…”
Lookout is directed by PD Sohn Hyung-seok of Two Weeks and is written by a new writer, Kim Soo-eun, who was picked out of last year’s MBC open scriptwriting competition. The drama follows Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People and premieres on May 22.
