“L.U.C.A.: The Beginning” is a new sci-fi action thriller starring Kim Rae Won as Ji Oh, a man who is being chased for his special abilities, and Lee Da Hee as Gu Reum, a violent crimes detective who is the only one who remembers him.
With just the first two episodes of the drama having aired, the synergy between Kim Rae Won and Lee Da Hee has proven to be phenomenal.

Kim Rae Won successfully portrayed these emotions amidst the continuous chase scenes Ji Oh faced. Lee Da Hee has also given birth to a new action heroine with her character Gu Reum. Already, viewers are captivated by the two actors’ skilled portrayal of the action and the characters’ emotions.
One interesting point to look out for in the drama is Ji Oh and Gu Reum’s relationship.

At first, Ji Oh is unaware of the reason why he is being chased, but the two people put their lives on the lines to save each other in every dangerous situation, raising questions about their closely intertwined fates.
Ji Oh saved Gu Reum with his special ability, which they eventually realized was the main reason why Ji Oh is being chased. Along with Ji Oh’s reappearance in the world, the mysteries surrounding the research facility ‘Human Tech’ also began to surface. Furthermore, Gu Reum began to recall her memories of a young boy she met in the past after she saw Ji Oh showcase his hidden abilities. Feeling sure that Ji Oh was that same boy, Gu Reum began to chase after the truth behind Ji Oh’s identity.
Furthermore, Ji Oh is curious about his past actions while Gu Reum questions what happened to her parents. As their pasts were revealed to be connected, Ji Oh used his abilities of his own accord for the first time in order to save Gu Reum. The production team shared, “In addition to the acting that completes the powerful chase and action scenes, Kim Rae Won and Lee Da Hee have the best detailed portrayal of emotions that add strength to the sturdy story.
