Watch: “Save Me 2” Releases Tense And Thrilling Character Teaser
OCN’s “Save Me 2” is the story of a village that’s driven into a corner, a false faith that saves it, and a man who stands alone to oppose that faith. On April 11, a chilling teaser for the fierce characters was revealed, raising anticipation for the drama.
The video starts off with Kim Min Chul (played by Uhm Tae Goo), alone, crossing a barren field. In the background, priest Sung Chul Woo (played by Kim Young Min) says, “Father, please chase away the evil energy so that we don’t lose courage no matter what despair we may face.” The scene shows the priest from the back, praying at the chapel with his two hands clasped tightly together.
Afterwards, the mysterious Choi Kyung Suk (played by Chun Ho Jin) enters the scene, saying, “Please save us.” As the tense music and narration stops, the mood suddenly shifts as Sung Chul Woo and Kim Min Chul’s younger sister Kim Young Sun (played by Esom) appear.
Kim Min Chul then storms into a chapel, and we hear him say, “What I hate the most are lying bastards.” Battling a false faith alone, he angrily tears the place apart. The screen reads, “In the world of a crazy cult, an even crazier bastard has arrived.”
“Save Me 2” has already made an impression as a thriller with just the characters alone. In particular, Uhm Tae Goo has perfectly taken on the role of the “crazy fool” Kim Min Chul. Furthermore, Chun Ho Jin has also showcased his overwhelming presence, while Esom and Kim Young Min already appear to be perfectly in sync with their characters.
The new OCN drama is led by director Lee Kwon of the film “Door Lock” and based on director Yeon Sang Ho’s animated film “The Fake,” which was recognized at various international film festivals. Rookie writer Seo Joo Yeon wrote the script for the drama, and director Yeon Sang Ho contributed with creative advice.
“Save Me 2” will premiere on May 8 at 11 p.m. KST. Watch the full teaser below!
