tvN Links Yeo Jin-gu with Moon Ga-young in new promos
tvN’s upcoming Link: Eat, Love, Kill is almost upon us and new promos have been released ahead of the fantasy romance’s premiere next week.
The story has Yeo Jin-gu (Beyond Evil) in the role of chef Eun Kye-hoon. As a child, he had the strange ability to “link” with another person, allowing him to read their feelings. But when his twin sibling mysteriously disappeared, his link ability vanished as well. Fast forward to the present, eighteen years later, when Yeo suddenly finds himself linked to Moon Ga-young’s (True Beauty) emotions.
Moon plays temp worker Noh Da-hyun and is initially unaware that Yeo can tap into her feelings – nor do the two characters know each other. But perhaps due to the re-emergence of his link ability, Yeo feels as if his past is signaling to him and he’s drawn back to his old neighborhood where he lost his twin – the same neighborhood where Moon now lives.
In the new posters, we get a look at our supporting cast: Grandma Yeh Soo-jung (The King of Tears, Lee Bang-won) and Mom Kim Ji-young (Monstrous) as well as Constable Song Deok-ho (Tracer) and Sergeant Lee Bom-sori (Justice).
The latest teaser is a preview of the first episode and starts with Yeo Jin-gu suddenly feeling linked to Moon Ga-young. Standing before her amid the crowded street, he explains in voiceover, “Even if we’re far apart in distance, the emotions feel so vivid. It has started again. It’s been eighteen years.” We then jump to Yeo meeting with Lee Seok-hyung (Juvenile Justice) and the two decide to open Yeo’s restaurant in the Ji-hwa district.
A shocked Moon Ga-young sees Yeo Jin-gu across the road from her window and she remembers him asking, “Would it be discourteous to ask which neighborhood you lived in as a child?” Moon demands to know if Yeo followed her all the way here and is suspicious when he suggests playing rock-paper-scissors. When she rejects the fragrant scarf he gifts her, Yeo tries in vain to protest his innocence.
Throwing out a box of various items, Moon Ga-young confronts a dumbfounded Yeo Jin-gu. “If you send me one more weird thing or show up in my vicinity again, I’m going to report you and make sure that you get a criminal record for it! You’re a perverted stalker!” We then cut to Moon walking home alone at night and getting attacked by the real stalker. The teaser then comes to a close on a worried Yeo Jin-gu who senses that something has happened.
Directed by PD Hong Jong-chan (Juvenile Justice) and co-written by Kwon Do-hwan and Kwon Ki-young (Suspicious Partners), tvN’s Link: Eat, Love, Kill premieres June 6 in the Monday-Tuesday slot.
