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.

Although Shin Sung-rok make a compelling villain, I have to say I'm looking forward to seeing this other side of him. He was wonderful in Trot Lovers (at least in the two episodes I watched. If he'd been the male lead, I would've stayed put).

I can't watch a show where he is not the lead. It breaks my heart. Like Vagabond. I stopped watching the moment they had him doing strange weird things just to get him out of the way. I loved the flirtation between him and Suzy, and if they had had that as the main plot, I would have been glued to the screen all the way to the end.

I'm cautiously excited with a side of cynicism. For Kat's sake (and Royal Hotness) I hope this is good. But you know, I'm still holding out for him to do a musical-based drama because why is he withholding his singing talent from the small screen?

We need to push through that adaptation of Pushing Daisies although I'm not sure what role I want SSR to take. We need to make a new role just for him - a singing one.

I would fully support him as a singing pie man, though didn't we decide someone else would be the pie man?

Wait, a kdrama version of Dead Like Me, and SSR could take Mandy Patinkin's role, and before he was reaper he was a musical star.

Maybe I'm just needing a good grim reaper show right now, but I think this could work.

1

Junho was the Pie Maker
Jung Ryeo-won was Chuck
Kim Seul-gi was Olive (this is the main singing part, the others don't really sing)
The Aunts are Oh Na-ra and ???

We could make SSR Emerson Cod and make him a Singing Detective. Or make up a brand new singing role just for him.

2

Gomawo for trying to make new roles just for Shin Sung Rok 🥺😆. Yes to singing pie man if it also means he's also a baker with a cute bakery. *mind drifts* isn't a bakery/pie shop also one of the background in Sweeney Todd?! Yikes. No Sweeney Todd and Ms Lovett inspired bakery please 😱.

>The Aunts are Oh Na-ra and ???

Fun tidbit: Oh Na Ra and Shin Sung Rok were in Finding Mr Destiny aka Finding Kim Jae Wook musical in 2006 before it became a movie 🤣.

I need a musical drama too. The veryyyy smallllll snippets in TLE was not enough 🥺.

The cat appears when he time travels to the past. Except that everything is backward.

"Woem." (Hint: Read it backward, Sherlock)

The first sound he hears in the new world.

He opens his eyes and there's a cat, next to him, upside down. Four paws in the air and head on the ground. It rolls off into the dark. Bham! And just like that, he's in the past.

Ah. Ohhhhhhhhh. An upside down cat is definitely a sign of things being not right.

Park Seung-woo previously directed four small-screen dramas (one web horror-drama Rumor was on Olleh/Youtube and the three were all MBC where Kairos will also aired here).

I'm totally excited! :)

Amazing but I'm interested too with this great time travel crime sci-fi drama show.

His hair is already floppy, covering most his forehead in the teaser 🙃. Suits won't stay long either....ngaaaaaaa...but it's him. He can wear anything and rock it. Sample⚡🦸🏻‍♂️: https://j.gifs.com/3Qv6ZA.gif

What does KAIROS mean?

1

reply

Required fields are marked *

I found that real meaning of Kairos:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kairos

Ancient Greek for right, critical, or opportune moment

Chronos referred to chronological or sequential order

Oh, thank you! That's interesting. So the title is referring both to time travel and having to make a decision at the right moment, with ability and a little bit of luck. I like the metaphor of archery.

Although this type of plot has been done to death in recent years, I'm still excited if only for Shin Sung Rok's involvement. Hope something fresh will come out of this drama!

Does he have chest hair? He was shirtless in that hot scene from TLE. I'm pretty sure he was smooth as a baby. But @katakwasabi would know. Kat knows EVERYTHING about SSR. He is my Unoppa. I can't call him Oppa, even though he is the only shape left in my sad little Candy heart. I kicked my other Oppas out.

Maybe he just yanks it all off religiously, like once a week. In keeping with his macho guy image. I can't believe he doesn't have a hairy chest, though. He's got so much hair...that fringe he sported in Perfume was thick. @sicarius watched Vagabond to the end. What do you think, sic? Does SSR have a hairy chest?

I watched it to the end, but he became more sparse the longer it went. Not sure if his chest hair did the same.

I see...I see...thank you for your contributions to this important science

3

@ndlessjoie Like @poliwag, I am grateful to you for your helpful analysis of the (lack of) chest hair. He was kind of a spare tyre in the drama, sadly, and so dispensible. I was so angry when they had him crash in that contrived accident! How dare they! So if he was sparse, part-wise, and chest hair-wise, it was THEIR FAULT! Hair fall is related to stress, and if his entire chest of hair fell off, well! It was because he was under so much emotional duress, being relegated to a useless extra.

There is a hole in my heart after the end of TLE in the shape of SSR.

quick someone write to him and ask him directly to show us if he does or does not have chest hair! and i am voting for not! but i will watch him in anything. he commands attention by showing up.

Diana, this hair thing is a very weighty issue. @poliwag pondered it for six years. I guess we will just have to wait and see (I have a magnifying glass in my drawer). However, it is my humble opinion that SSR has a bountiful chest of hair (or a chest of bountiful hair?) judging from the lushness of his fringe and the prolific garden of rich, luscious, jet-black hair on his head ---- @leetennant I am referring to the structure above the forehead. Will this get me banned from DB? *Giggling*

@wishfultoki I almost want to make your fangirl heart happy (I know how much you love my cameos, toki!) by declaring: "Yes! I will cameo as a strain/tuft/bush/forest of chest hair on that beautiful chest...but...there are some things I draw the line at, and chest hair, no matter how hot said chest may be, is not one of them.

It is research I and @mary have pondered long and hard upon...sometimes he has chest hair and sometimes he...GASP...doesn't...perhaps I will ask him in personal eventually, in the hopes that this can finally be put to rest
