Breathtaking landscapes and gothic mystery in Black Knight teasers
Black Knight, the KBS fantasy drama spanning two centuries, has given us more picturesque teasers. The scenery shots are incredibly beautiful, as are leads Kim Rae-won (Doctors) and Shin Se-kyung (Bride of a Water God 2017). The drama is a pure love story about a man who is willing to lay down his life for the woman he loves and battles a dangerous fate.
Kim Rae-won plays the main lead—a stoic man who is hard on himself, but whenever he loves, he does it with 100 percent sincerity. Meanwhile, Shin Se-kyung plays a travel agent who keeps a positive attitude despite hitting rock bottom in her family life, relationships, and career. From the first teaser, it seems like they meet in a scenic region of Slovenia where Kim Rae-won has come as a photographer to capture the landscape. She’s a woman waiting for love, and he’s a man who wants to protect that love.
After some falling, some flirting, some frivolous (but much appreciated) showering, we find that it might not have been their first meeting after all. She angrily confronts him about deceiving her, and he truthfully replies that it was because he wanted to stay with her. The final note of the teaser ends in a more optimistic tone, with Kim Rae-won remarking happily that they indeed met again like he said they would.
The second teaser is much darker in tone, featuring two characters we haven’t really been introduced to yet. Seo Ji-hye (Jealousy Incarnate) plays a secretive fashion designer named Sharon who can be selfish and prickly, but when put into tricky situations, she finds her own unique solution. She’s associated with Kim Rae-won’s mysterious assistant, played by Jang Mi-hee (Madame Antoine), who has somehow lived for 200 years.
In the teaser, Shin Se-kyung wanders the streets aimlessly as Seo Ji-hye extends an offer to her: a reason for Shin Se-kyung to live in exchange for giving Seo Ji-hye the one thing she wants. The eeriness grows as gothic organ music plays and Jang Mi-hee states that everything must go back to its original place. Kim Rae-won seems confused by the fact that people who have slighted or insulted him recently seem to keep dying, and we see flashbacks of Shin Se-kyung in troubled Joseon times. The teaser concludes with Jang Mi-hee cackling that they’ll achieve their desires.
Hmmm, so is this going to by a passionate melodrama or a gothic supernatural mystery? We’ll find out when KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Black Knight premieres on December 6.
