Watch: Namgoong Min, Lee Chung Ah, And AOA’s Seolhyun Face Dangerous Secrets In “Awaken” Highlight Reel
tvN has released a highlight reel ahead of the premiere of “Awaken”!
“Awaken” is a murder mystery drama that will follow the connections between mysterious events unfolding in the present and the secrets behind an enigmatic incident that took place in a village 28 years ago.
Namgoong Min will star in the drama as Do Jung Woo, the eccentric but brilliant team leader of a special task force at the National Police Agency, while AOA’s Seolhyun will play passionate police officer Gong Hye Won. Lee Chung Ah will also star in the drama as FBI agent Jamie, who was adopted as a young child and returns to Korea to solve the serial killer case connected to her lost memories of her childhood from 28 years ago.
The highlight reel begins with the arrival of a mysterious letter that foreshadows a serial murder. True to the content of the letter, a series of murders disguised as suicide occur, and Do Jung Woo, Gong Hye Won, and Jamie team up to go after the truth.
However, things don’t go smoothly as suspicions and doubt surface between Do Jung Woo and Jamie. Jamie asks him if they saw each other before, and he eyes her with disdain as he wonders the same question out loud.
On top of that, another incident called the “White Night Village Disaster” that occurred 28 years ago is brought back to light. The two cases are shrouded in deep mystery, and the haunting secrets may be linked to the detectives themselves.
Gong Hye Won approaches Jamie and demands if she’s suspecting Do Jung Woo. Gong Hye Won defends him, saying, “Although he could be a bit precarious, he’s not hiding anything.” To that, Jamie bluntly says, “He doesn’t look precarious. He looks dangerous.”
At the end of the clip, Jamie accuses Do Jung Woo as the culprit, and Do Jung Woo asks, “Do I really look like that kind of person to you?” After a brief pause, he says in an eerie voice, “Then I guess I must be the culprit.”

“Awaken” premieres on November 30 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki.
