Murder and mania in trailer for sci-fi action drama Rugal
OCN bionic superhero drama Rugal has dropped a new trailer before its premiere date later this month. The drama stars Choi Jin-hyuk (Justice, Devilish Joy) as a detective who loses his wife and sight to a shadowy terrorist organization named Argos, headed by Park Sung-woong’s (When the Devil Calls Your Name) character. On his path for revenge, he joins an elite group of cyborg soldiers called Rugal and is gifted with bioengineered artificial eyes.
The trailer begins with scenes of Choi Jin-hyuk’s wife’s death, and Park Sung-woong’s voiceover saying that revenge is for people who’ve been wronged. An open cargo container reveals victims of human trafficking bowing before Park Sung-woong and his henchmen.
Then, we skip to Choi Jin-hyuk’s eye implantation surgery, and he says that he can finally see clearly now. Interspersed between the scenes is the copy: “When that bastard destroyed everything, I was reborn.” Meanwhile, Choi Jin-hyuk demands answers from Park Sung-woong, “What do you want. Why are you doing this?”
A spray of arterial blood from a victim leads Park Sung-woong to smile maniacally, as he replies, “Shall I say, it’s the irreversible ecstasy you feel after your first murder.”
The Rugal team’s artificially enhanced combat training scenes are shown, and Choi Jin-hyuk resolved that Rugal has to give back as good a fight as they have gotten. And the trailer ends with Choi Jin-hyuk speaking to Park Sung-woong’s image displayed in an empty investigations room: “From now on, I’m going to catch you my way.”
Saturday-Sunday OCN original series Rugal will begin airing on March 28.
