Watch: Kim Rae Won And Lee Da Hee Lean On Each Other During Intense Battle In “L.U.C.A.: The Beginning” Teaser
“L.U.C.A.: The Beginning” shared a highlight video that previews more of the show’s action and thrills!
The upcoming tvN drama is about a man named Ji Oh (Kim Rae Won) who is being chased for his special abilities, and a violent crimes detective named Gu Reum (Lee Da Hee), who is the only one who remembers him. Kim Sung Oh appears as Lee Son, who is the chief among Ji Oh’s pursuers and used to be part of the special forces.
The new highlight video reveals a further glimpse of the intriguing universe of the story and the impressive action and performances. It begins with a clip of Ji Oh defending himself in a fight as he sets off sparks of blue light, giving a hint of his special abilities. Bloodied from the battle, he looks down at his hands and his voice is heard saying, “I don’t know why I’m here or how I got here.”
The video goes on to show Ji Oh running and fighting to evade his pursuers. Gu Reum says, “I’ve remembered exactly who you are.” Following the scenes of intense fighting, Ji Oh leans on the shoulder of Gu Reum, his only safe haven as he struggles in his lonely battle.
Gu Reum is also shown sleeping on Ji Oh’s shoulder as they sit together. When he takes her hand, Lee Son says as a narration, “He’s always just running away. That was the first time I saw him save someone.” It appears that Ji Oh and Gu Reum have become entwined by fate, and a caption reads, “She is the only one who lives in Ji Oh’s memory.” Ji Oh says, “If I survive this, I’ll go to you.”
Meanwhile, Lee Son and Ji Oh are locked in a chilling showdown, with Lee Son chasing Ji Oh with beast-like instincts. “This is the beginning,” says Lee Son. “But if you don’t show up, I’m going to kill everyone you know.” Ji Oh’s rage reaches its extreme and he shows astounding strength.
The teaser also gives a further look at the employees of the “Human Tech” research center that lies at the core of the story in “L.U.C.A.: The Beginning.” Ryu Joong Kwon (played by Ahn Nae Sang) is the research center’s director and he’s obsessed with the idea of creating the perfect human. Lee Son says to him with tears falling down his face, “Make me stronger.”
Jin Kyung plays Hwang Jung Ah, a mysterious character who established Human Tech and hired the greatest scientists for her mission. “A new era will dawn,” she says, making drama fans even more curious about the secrets and plans of the characters in “L.U.C.A.: The Beginning.” Meanwhile, Ji Oh becomes stronger as he fights against these foes. He gives off an intense aura as he stands in front of flames, giving the warning, “Try to kill me. I’m going to survive until the end and kill everyone.”
