Watch: Shin Hyun Been And Goo Kyo Hwan Get Entangled In A Hellish Nightmare In “Monstrous” Teaser
Upcoming horror drama “Monstrous” has unveiled a chilling teaser!
“Monstrous” is about the people who are lured in by a curse from “that thing” that shouldn’t have come out into the world and tells the story of archaeologists who chase after monstrous cases that have never been heard of. As a village gets swept up in disaster with the discovery of a mysterious possessed statue of the Buddha, the confusion from the people who face the strange terror and the process of chasing after it will deliver great suspense to viewers.
The drama is penned by director Yeon Sang Ho, who directed “Train to Busan” and “Peninsula” and wrote the OCN drama “The Cursed,” as well as Ryu Yong Jae, who wrote “Pied Piper” and “My Holo Love.” It will be directed by Jang Gun Jae, who won Best Screenplay at the 16th Busan Film Critics Award and Best Director and Best Screenplay at the 3rd Wildflower Film Awards with the film “A Midsummer’s Fantasia.”
Goo Kyo Hwan plays the eccentric archaeologist Jung Ki Hoon who researches bizarre supernatural phenomena. In the midst of running the occult YouTube channel titled “Monthly Ghost Stories,” he faces a strange and unbelievable phenomenon while investigating the Buddhist statue found in Jinyang County.
Shin Hyun Been stars as the genius pattern cryptanalyst Lee Soo Jin who ends up having to face a terrible disaster. After losing her only daughter, Lee Soo Jin puts down everything to return to Jinyang County where she begins to experience inexplicable events. The chemistry and strong acting skills of the two actors are points to anticipate in the drama.
The teaser starts off with archaeologists uncovering a Buddhist statue. One man comments, “It’s not just a Buddha statue. It’s a gwibul (a haunted Buddhist statue) filled with a spirit.'” Another voiceover urgently says, “We took out something that we shouldn’t have!” The captions sends chills up one’s spine as they read, “They shouldn’t have discovered it. Those who see the eyes will be trapped in hell.”
Jung Ki Hoon and Lee Soo Jin get entangled in a series of nightmares. People are spotted fleeing while screaming as ghastly figures chase after them. Kwon Jong Soo (Park Ho San) looks scared out of his wits as he’s cornered along with a group of other people. Troublemaker Kwak Yong Joo (Kwak Dong Yeon) claims, “We’d better tie all of them up quickly. Who knows when they’ll go insane?”
“Monstrous” will premiere in April on TVING. Watch the full teaser below:
