Setting the stage for tvN’s courtroom thriller Confession
I’m seriously enjoying all of these heavyweight casts we’ve been getting lately in dramaland, and I hope it keeps up. One of my most anticipated shows this year is tvN’s Confession, and if you looked at the cast list, you’d know why: Junho (Greasy Melo) and Yoo Jae-myung (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky) will be leading the cast in this courtroom thriller, and they’ll have some impressive support from their co-stars.
The latest teaser to come out of Confession is just as short as the last one, and there’s not much more than brief snippets of all the key players, though it says something that that’s all it took to get me excited. The first of these key players is Moon Sung-geun (Boyfriend), followed by Jung Hee-tae (Jo Deul-ho 2), Song Young-chang (Bad Guys: City of Evil), and Yoon Kyung-ho (Trap). The ratio between men and women in the supporting cast isn’t all that great, unfortunately, but I’m hoping Nam Ki-ae (Boyfriend) and Shin Hyun-bin (Mistresses) will make up for that deficiency through their performances.
It’ll be interesting to see how this ensemble cast will fit together in this courtroom thriller about double jeopardy. But of course, the biggest draw is our two main leads, Yoo Jae-myung and Junho, both looking appropriately contemplative in the rain as they overlook a crime scene. It remains to be seen whether they’ll be on the same side, but I can’t wait to see these two either go at it, or work together, or both!
Confession will air on tvN’s weekend slot, premiering on March 23.
