Watch: Yoon Shi Yoon And Kyung Soo Jin Describe Their Drama “Train,” How They Prepare Behind-The-Scenes, And More
“Train” is a sci-fi thriller about two parallel universes that broke apart when a single choice was made on the night of a murder. Yoon Shi Yoon stars as Seo Do Won, a violent crimes detective at the Mu Kyeong Police Station. In universe “A,” Seo Do Won lives with a sense of guilt because of his father’s sins. In universe “B,” his father’s crimes lead him into a life of corruption. Han Seo Kyung (played by Kyung Soo Jin) in universe “A” overcomes the trauma of her father’s death thanks to Seo Do Won’s kindness, while universe “B” Han Seo Kyung harbors deep hatred for her father’s murderer.
When asked to explain why drama fans should start watching “Train” in just five syllables, Yoon Shi Yoon got creative and told Kyung Soo Jin, “We have a lot of Viki fans. You have to do it in English for them!” Surprised, Kyung Soo Jin asked, “How can I do this in English?”
