Watch: Ryu Jun Yeol Realizes He’s Lived A Meaningless Life In Emotional Teaser For New Drama
JTBC has shared another heartbreaking teaser for its upcoming drama “Lost.”
In the drama, Jeon Do Yeon will be starring as Boo Jung, a ghostwriter in her forties who feels as though she hasn’t amounted to anything. Ryu Jun Yeol will star as Kang Jae, a man struggling to make ends meet who is terrified of his unpromising future. When the two characters meet in the shadows, they embark on a journey of healing as they attempt to escape the darkness.
The newly released teaser shares a glimpse of Kang Jae’s unstable life. His voiceover states, “I work as someone who can be freely contacted by anyone at any time.” As someone who runs a service where employees act out whatever roles clients request, he is used to spending time with strangers. He masks his true identity and lives his life as someone’s family, friend, and lover.
Kang Jae confronts his parent and asks, “You can’t even give your son 300,000 won (approximately $261)? Money is love.” His cold words show his priority as he lives in harsh reality where money is everything.
The video also shows Kang Jae experiencing overwhelming moments. Sometimes, he’s in tears, and other times, he’s tugging on his hair in frustration. He candidly claims, “If I have to become poorer and poorer, I might become someone worse than I am now.” One mysterious female voice asks, “How much do I have to pay you? For today?” The clip ends with Kang Jae sighing deeply and lowering his head.
“Lost” is currently scheduled to premiere in September. In the meantime, check out the new teaser below!
