Watch: Gong Yoo Goes Against All Odds To Save Park Bo Gum In Trailer For Upcoming Sci-Fi Film
The movie is about Ki Heon (played by Gong Yoo), a former intelligence agent who is tasked with ensuring the safe transportation of mankind’s first human clone Seo Bok (played by Park Bo Gum) as his last mission. They become caught in dangerous situations as several forces aim to take the clone for themselves.
Park Bo Gum himself narrates the trailer as it gives a glimpse of the characters’ complicated backstories. The actor shares that Seobok is the world’s first human clone who is surrounded by people trying to control him. First off, Seobok is described as a ten-year-old boy who has never stepped foot out of the laboratory before. With Ki Heon, he encounters new things, and he starts to wonder why he’s so dangerous.
Then Park Bo Gum introduces Ki Heon, a former intelligent agent who doesn’t have long to live. One scientist (played by Park Byung Eun) makes an irresistible offer: use Seobok to live. All he has to do is safely transfer Seobok. However, Ki Heon realizes something is off, and despite his life-threatening situation, he does whatever he can to protect the clone.
There’s also Director Ahn (Jo Woo Jin), an agent who tries to hide Seobok from everyone. He is a thorough man who must execute his plans at all costs. Im Se Eun (Jang Young Nam) is the lead researcher who made Seobok. She’s the one who took care of the clone and witnessed him grow and change. However, it is ambiguous whether she is his friend or foe.
