Yoon Shi-yoon has identity crisis in new teaser for Psychopath Diary
A new video teaser has been released for tvN drama Psychopath Diary featuring its lead actor Yoon Shi-yoon (Nokdu Flower).
As the central character, Yoon Shi-yoon plays the role of Yook Dong-shik. Out of all the people it could have been to pass by at that time and at that place, it was the spineless and hapless Yoon who by chance witnesses a murder. Scared and not knowing what to do, he tries to run away, but gets into an accident and ultimately loses his memory. The only clue he now has to his lost identity is a diary that was found on his person. However, the diary contains details of a series of murders and it leads Yoon to mistakenly believe that he is the psychopath murderer behind these crimes.
In actuality, the true culprit and owner of the diary, played by Park Sung-hoon (Justice), is still at large. And Yoon Shi-yoon works together with police officer Jung In-sun (My Secret Terrius) to piece together the real truth.
The newly released teaser focuses on Yoon Shi-yoon’s character, starting with Yoon waking up in the hospital and a close-up of his patient card shows that he has been diagnosed with retrograde amnesia. In a serious voice, Yoon explains, “The only clue to finding my lost memory. This diary is telling me that I am a serial murderer. As he speaks, we see Yoon holding a red diary while looking somber and contemplative. The background music becomes eerie and crescendos before suddenly cutting out and switching to a zanier tune. Cut to a comically frantic and nervous Yoon Shi-yoon who reads the diary in disbelief, “W-w-wow… I’m a murderer?” The teaser ends with Yoon’s voice-over, “The world has begun to fear the pushover, Psychopath Diary.”
Directing for the drama will be helmed by PD Lee Jong-jae (100 Days My Prince), and writing will be done collaboratively by Ryu Yong-jae (Pied Piper, Liar Game), Kim Hwan-chae, Choi Sung-joon.
tvN’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Psychopath Diary is currently set to premiere next month on November 20.
