Shin Sung-rok, Lee Se-young team up in time thriller Kairos teaser
The first teaser for time-crossing thriller drama Kairos, starring Lee Se-young (Memorist) and Shin Sung-rok (Vagabond), has been revealed. In this drama, Lee Se-young and Shin Sung-rok fight against all odds and cross time in order to find their loved ones.
Shin Sung-rok’s character is an extremely successful, ambitious man whose life seems perfect until his daughter is kidnapped. Whereas, Lee Se-young’s character is living paycheck to paycheck, barely enduring the drudgery, when her mother goes missing.
Somehow, these two are able to communicate and team up despite the fact that they live in two different times. Shin Sung-rok lives one month in the future, and Lee Se-young lives one month in the past.
In the short teaser clip, a woman stares out from a bridge as if to commit suicide as Shin Sung-rok narrates: “One cannot change what has already happened. I always thought that.” Short cuts of Shin Sung-rok and Lee Se-young are shown, and police dogs search for someone in a tall grassy area. The copy reads: “An opportunity through a special time.”
A cell phone rings, and it’s shown that Shin Sung-rok has contacted Lee Se-young. She tells him, “I saw it,” as a scene shows her chasing someone down. He desperately tries to convince her, “We can change it.” She goes on to tell him, “There was another strange man.” The hints of time-traveling is revealed when Lee Se-young says, “It’s August right now, but it said it was September.”
Lee Se-young is escorted through prison by two guards on each side, as Shin Sung-rok tells her, “You will save my life, and I will save you.” The copy reads, “One minute will change everything,” and a few more shots of Shin Sung-rok and Lee Se-young are shown before the teaser closes.
MBC Wednesday-Tuesday drama Kairos, directed by Park Seung-woo and written by Lee Soo-hyun, will begin airing on October 26.
