Watch: Upcoming Action Sci-Fi Drama Starring Choi Jin Hyuk Reveals New Moving Poster
Upcoming OCN drama “Rugal” has revealed a new moving poster!
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Rugal” stars Choi Jin Hyuk as Kang Ki Bum, an elite detective who attempts to bring down a nationwide criminal organization named Argos. In the process, he ends up being targeted by the powerful criminals behind Argos, and not only does he lose his beloved wife and both of his eyes, but he is also framed for murder. After joining an organization named Rugal, which has gathered a team of “human weapons” with special powers created through biotechnology, Kang Ki Bum receives a set of artificial eyes and sets out on a quest to wipe out Argos once and for all.
The moving poster starts with an image from the webtoon, transitioning to Choi Jin Hyuk as he opens his eyes. He says, “When the tears dry, [he] becomes a monster.”
Talking about the drama, Choi Jin Hyuk said, “The drama has comic book-like elements and is a much different genre than I’ve done previously, so I’m worried on one hand and curious on the other. Once the set is made and we start filming there, I think I’ll feel like it’s more of a reality. At the moment, I’m still learning about [my character] Ki Bum and coming to understand the tone of the drama.”
Park Sung Woong, who plays Hwang Deuk Gu of the criminal organization Argos, said, “It’s fun, playing a villain, since you get to do things you normally wouldn’t in real life. While acting, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to be entertaining and look even more evil.”
Actor Jo Dong Hyuk said, “First, it’s really cold. I’m really looking forward to this drama. There’s a lot of action and the story is really fun, too.”
Jung Hye In said, “I’ve been looking forward to the drama since the first day on set, and it makes me wish we had to film every day.”
Closing, Han Ji Wan said, “We’ve just started filming, so I’m both nervous and excited, but it’s been really fun so far. I’ll work hard until the end.”
“Rugal” premieres March 16.
