The chase for Kim Rae-won begins in tvN’s new action sci-fi drama
New promos have been released for tvN’s new action sci-fi L.U.C.A.: The Beginning, including a new poster and a behind-the-scenes video teaser.
The drama stars Kim Rae-won (Black Knight) as a man possessing special powers who suddenly finds himself on the run. The complication though, is that he has no memories of his own identity, and has no idea who his chasers are or why he is being chased.
The only person who seems to remember Kim is Lee Da-hee (Search Query: WWW), a police detective in the violent crimes unit. The details are still unknown, but the two decide to team up and fight against the conspiracy that has grown around Kim Rae-won’s character.
The main opposition comes from fellow police detective Kim Sung-oh (Graceful Friends), who is the head of the violent crimes team. Like an animal on the hunt, his determination to catch Kim Rae-won is a force to be reckoned with.
Also desperate to find Kim Rae-won is a biotechnology research team who are involved in a top secret project. And the search is headed by scientist Park Hyuk-kwon (Extracurricular), director of the labs Ahn Nae-sang (Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol), and founder of the research company Jin Kyung (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2).
Other supporting cast members include Kim Sang-ho (Sweet Home), Jung Da-eun (Mystic Pop-up Bar), and Lee Joong-ok (Zombie Detective.
In the newly released teaser, we get a peek at Kim Rae-won in some of the drama’s action sequences: explosions, fights, and chases galore. And we also get a look behind the camera, and see how practical and digital effects are being used to film different scenes.
The intercutting text screens announce that this is, “tvN’s first action drama in 2021!” And that the “Action scenes push beyond the limit!” The video comes to a close with Kim Rae-won’s narration, “L.U.C.A.: The Beginning premieres February 1.”
Written by Chun Sung-il (Your Honor, The Package) and directed by PD Kim Hong-seon (The Guest, Black), tvN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama L.U.C.A.: The Beginning is currently set to air next month on February 1, 2021.
