Ominous teaser for The Road: Tragedy of One revealed
On a night of torrential rain, a cruel, tragic incident starts a cycle of secrets and deception in The Road: Tragedy of One. The recently released teaser for the drama stars Ji Jin-hee (Undercover, Move to Heaven), Yoon Se-ah (Forest of Secrets 2), and Kim Hye-eun (Graceful Friends).
Through a door just barely cracked open, we get a peek at the lives of the residents of Royal The Hill, a luxury estate where only the top 1% of Korea can reside. Our first glance is at Ji Jin-hee playing Baek Soo-hyun, the most trusted news anchor and reporter in Korea. He stares at his phone anxiously, as though waiting for an important call.
Similarly, Yoon Se-ah, playing Baek Soo-hyun’s wife, Seo Eun-soo, also looks apprehensive about something impending. On the other hand, Kim Hye-eun playing a fellow Royal The Hill resident, looks at the camera challengingly, almost as if she’s daring the future to come.
Her character is a haughty nighttime news announcer that has it all: looks, wealth, and a home life. Copy appears onscreen: “When a moment swallows the truth…” We see that all three characters are actually gathered together in the same room, and then the copy continues, “…a tragedy begins.” All three characters look up toward the ceiling. At this moment, Baek Soo-hyun’s phone rings, caller ID unknown.
tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday mystery drama The Road: Tragedy of One, written by Yoon Hee-jung and directed by Kim Noh-won, will air starting August 4.
