The chase begins in new promos for Disney+’s Grid
The Disney+ mystery action-thriller Grid has released new promos ahead of its premiere next month, including photos from the first script reading (from last May), and a new video teaser and character stills.
The story imagines an earth that would have been destroyed by solar winds if not for the saving act of a being called Ghost. After creating a protective grid barrier around the world, she disappeared without a trace and now, 24 years later, she has mysteriously returned.
In an ensemble cast, Seo Kang-joon (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day), Kim Ah-joong (Live Up to Your Name), and Kim Mu-yeol (Juvenile Justice) are part of the government and police groups who are chasing Ghost and determined to find as much information as they can.
Meanwhile, the criminal and murderer Kim Sung-kyun (D.P.) unexpectedly finds himself under the protection of Lee Shi-young (Sweet Home), who plays the unknowable Ghost.
Supporting cast includes Jang So-yeon (The Game: Towards Zero), Song Sang-eun (Dark Hole), Heo Joon-seok (Our Beloved Summer), and Kim Hyung-mook (Vincenzo) among others.
The teaser begins with Seo Kang-joon deep in investigations and he reasons, “Rather than us going out to look for [Ghost], we need to make her come looking for us.” As Kim Ah-joong and Kim Mu-yeol help look for clues, Kim Ah-joong wonders, “Why did she appear in front of me?” and we flashback to when she witnessed Ghost disappearing in front of her. In contrast, the disinterested Kim Mu-yeol muses, “Even if her identity is revealed, it doesn’t matter.”
Next, we jump to a text screen which reads, “Pursue the mysterious being who saved humankind” before the teaser cuts to Kim Sung-kyun screaming in frustration: “If I catch you, you’re dead!” In a quick sequence, we see Lee Shi-young on the chase. Giving a small laugh, Lee warns, “Don’t let it slip out of your hands.”
Production for Grid has been led by writer Lee Soo-yeon (Forest of Secrets 1, 2) along with directors, Khan Lee (The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful) and Park Chul-hwan. The Disney+ drama premieres on February 16.
