Seo In-gook finds love again amidst Death’s Game
What would you do if you met your ex-girlfriend but in a different body? That is the question Death’s Game poses to its protagonist Choi Yi-jae played by Seo In-gook (Cafe Minamdang). A down-on-his-luck man who commits suicide, Yi-jae finds himself trapped in a twisted game with Park So-dam (Record of Youth) who plays Death, and he must find a way to live lest he meet twelve unfortunate ends.
The latest clip for the upcoming thriller has a shift in tone, and instead of showcasing every single face from its star-studded lineup, it focuses on three characters: Seo In-gook as Choi Yi-jae, Lee Do-hyun (The Good Bad Mother) as Jang Gun-woo, and Go Yoon-jung (Moving) as Lee Ji-soo. While Yi-jae is occupying Gun-woo’s body as part of his punishment, Ji-soo enters the café where he works. He stares at her, frozen in place, and memories from a happier time come flooding back to him.
The scene switches to the past and reveals the moment the ex-lovers first met. While Ji-soo walks across a bridge, the wind carries her manuscript away along with the cherry blossoms. The papers land in front of Yi-jae, and he hears Ji-soo call out to him. She tells him that she will come down to pick them up, and when she smiles at him, it is evident that Yi-jae has fallen in love.
Returning to the present, Yi-jae watches Ji-soo slowly approach him, and though he remembers her, she only sees him as Gun-woo. It seems Death wants to torture our protagonist emotionally as well as physically with these twelve lives.
Directed and adapted by Ha Byung-hoon (18 Again, Go Back Spouses), TVING’s Death’s Game is slated for eight episodes and will drop the first half on December 15 and the second half next year on January 5.
