New character stills for My Strange Hero
On the heels of its premiere next week, upcoming SBS drama, Revenge Returns, released new character stills.
The story is said to be an odd but warm romance about a character named Kang Bok-soo, played by Yoo Seung Ho (I’m Not a Robot), whose name “Bok-soo” means “revenge” in Korean. In his high school years, he is wrongfully accused of committing assault and is expelled. He returns to the school later as an adult in order to take revenge, but things, naturally, don’t go according to plan.
Kwak Dong-yeon plays Oh Se-ho who is described as having a smiling face and a gentle personality. However, the character develops an inferiority complex and a love-hate relationship with Kang Bok-soo. In their youth, Se-ho struggled as a student, but Bok-soo always seemed to be happy and without problems. In his adult years, Se-ho joins the story as a member of the school board.
The stills below show Oh Se-ho arriving at the airport, returning from abroad, and being surprised by something or someone. Filming took place on October 29 at the Incheon airport in South Korea, and production staff praised the actor for showing great concentration despite the difficulty of shooting on location in a busy airport.
Jo Boa (Temperature of Love) plays Sohn Soo-jung, Kang Bok-soo’s first love, who ends up at their old high school in a temporary teaching position in their adult years.
She is pictured below with Yeon Joon-seok (Your House Helper) who plays Oh Young-min. He’s a student in the top tier “Ivy League Class”, but the lowest-ranked in the group and under a lot of pressure and stress. The two are shown standing on one of the bridges over the Han River. Inexplicably, Jo Boa’s character stands atop the ledge with her shoes taken off and her bag set on the ground.
The scene was shot on a chilly and windy October 31 at the Dongjak Bridge in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. The production staff noted that the scene is a reflection of the current state of education in South Korea and intended to show the importance of communication.
Stills were also released of the main character with his two best friends, Kim Dong-young (Let’s Eat 3) who plays Lee Kyung-hyun and Park Ah-in (Mister Sunshine) who plays Yang Min-ji. The three are shown attending a ceremony in which Kang Bok-soo receives a Citizen’s Award for Bravery. However, while the two friends are dressed formally for the event, the recipient, Bok-soo, is in casual attire.
Revenge Returns will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on SBS starting next week on December 10, 2018.
