Watch: Lee Dong Wook Gives Im Siwan Quite The Fright In “Strangers From Hell” Teaser
“Strangers from Hell” will be a mystery thriller that follows an aspiring novelist who moves to Seoul to pursue his dreams and experiences an unexpected hell because of the unusual residents of his dorm building.
The new teaser introduces dentist Seo Moon Jo, played by Lee Dong Wook. He is first shown seeing to a patient, his slightly wavy hair and glasses giving him an intellectual aura and reflecting the many good words people share about him being a kind and competent dentist. He picks up his phone and says, “I’ll go straight after work today.”
Home isn’t what one would expect from a dentist, as he enters the worn-down building of Eden Dormitory. He arrives at the communal kitchen and sees newcomer Yoon Jong Woo (played by Im Siwan) sitting at the table. When Yoon Jong Woo turns around, startled by the dentist’s appearance, Seo Moon Jo says, “You’re the new person, right?” and Yoon Jong Woo replies, “Yes, please look upon me favorably.” Seo Moon Jo has a slightly unsettling smile on his face as he replies, “No, that’s what I should be saying to you.”
Lee Dong Wook’s character is expecting to bring more intrigue to the drama. He was reimagined from the original webtoon series and details about him are scarce other than that he is a mysterious character who you can’t tell is good or bad.
“Strangers from Hell” will be the follow-up drama to “Watcher” and will premiere on August 31 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
