Yoon Kye-sang cries onions for ENA’s Day of Kidnapping
A cute first poster and video teaser have dropped for ENA’s black comedy and thriller Day of Kidnapping, showcasing our story’s odd buddy duo with a bumbling Yoon Kye-sang (Kiss Sixth Sense) and a young but sharp-witted Yoo-na (Green Mothers’ Club).
Adapted from a popular novel by the same title, our soft-hearted hero Kim Myung-joon (Yoon Kye-sang) is a desperate man in need of money to pay for his daughter’s hospital bills. Upon his ex-wife’s prodding, Myung-joon thus agrees to kidnap Ro-hee (Yoo-na) for ransom money. But as we see from the new promos, he’s not quite cut out for the hardened criminal life.
The teaser opens on what looks like a sinister scene, with lights flickering in a darkened room where a young girl sits crying. A frustrated Myung-joon then takes his knife to the cutting board, but it’s quickly revealed that he’s also shedding tears. In the intermittent text screens, we read: “A tearjerker scene about kid care and not kidnapping!”
We then see that there’s a growing bowl of freshly sliced onions on the table and our pair both complain that it’s making their eyes burn. But before Ro-hee can stop him, Myung-joon adds the full bowl’s contents to the pot. When she questions the amount of onions, Myung-joon pauses awkwardly to remember the recipe. An incredulous Ro-hee orders him to take them out and we close as Myung-joon scrambles to save the stew.
Although not yet featured, the series also stars Park Sung-hoon (Not Others) as the police detective on Myung-joon’s tail, while Kim Shin-rok (Shadow Detective 2) takes on the role of Myung-joon’s ex-wife.
On the production side, directing is helmed by PD Park Yoo-young (A Model Family) with scripts penned by Kim Je-young (Cheese in the Trap, the film). Slated to air in the Wednesday-Thursday slot following Longing for You, ENA’s Day of Kidnapping premieres on September 13.
