Fighting kicks into high gear in new promos for SBS’s Hyena
More promos have been released for SBS’s upcoming drama Hyena, featuring the lead actors in a new poster and fun new video teaser.
The drama stars Kim Hye-soo (Signal) and Joo Ji-hoon (Item) as rival lawyers in an industry where money is the key to winning and the competition is ruthless and hard-boiled. As a result of this fierce environment, the lawyers of the story become like hyenas in the wild who do whatever it takes to fight and survive.
However, although Kim Hye-soo and Joo Ji-hoon’s characters are rivals, their relationship is also complicated. As suggested by both the newly released poster and teaser, the tension between the two can be read in different ways. And the lines are blurred whether the two are fighting, dancing, or gearing up for something more intimate.
The video starts with Kim Hye-soo and Joo Ji-hoon standing face-to-face and warming up for a fight. The caption introduces their characters as: “Jung Geum-ja vs. Yoon Hee-jae.” In a sequence of shots, we see the two fighting in their office like children in a schoolyard brawl: sneering, taunting, yanking, biting, etc. Text appears intermittently on the screen explaining that there are “No rule. No mercy. No manners.”
Cut to Kim Hye-soo throwing Joo Ji-hoon onto a desk. Pulling him up by his tie towards her, Kim grabs the back of Joo’s head and leans in close. The scene is intercut with text screens declaring, “Outbreak of war between the hyenas!” and “Hyena premieres February 21 at 10 p.m.” Returning to the two characters, the teaser closes with Kim Hye-soo still holding Joo Ji-hoon by his tie and she tilts her head down to give him a peck on the nose.
SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama Hyena is currently set to premiere in just a few weeks on February 21, following Stove League.
