Watch: Park Ji Hoon Isn’t Going To Be Bullied Without A Fight In Chilling Trailer For “Weak Hero”
wavve has unveiled a suspenseful sneak peek of its upcoming drama “Weak Hero”!
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Weak Hero” is an action school drama starring Park Ji Hoon as Yeon Si Eun, a model student who excels at school, but is physically frail—making him an easy target for bullies who are jealous of his top grades. Though Yeon Si Eun appears weak on the outside, he eventually uses his brain to win his battles as he fights back against the violence that unfolds both inside and outside of school.
The newly released trailer begins with Yeon Si Eun facing off against two of his bullies in the bathroom, menacingly clicking a pen as he says in voice-over, “Pavlov’s dog experiment. The bell rings. Food is given. The dog salivates. [Later,] only the bell is rung.”
As the caption reveals that his grades are in the top 1 percent, the clip goes on to show Yeon Si Eun being awarded a gold prize at school. However, his academic success attracts unwanted attention from school bullies, who torment him between classes and tell him, “Did you know that people can’t stand the sight of you?”
But as Yeon Si Eun coldly returns his bully’s gaze, it becomes evident that he isn’t going to go down without a fight. After making friends with Ahn Su Ho (played by Choi Hyun Wook of “Twenty Five, Twenty One”), Yeon Si Eun develops a new goal: “something that’s more important than studying.”
At the end of the video, Yeon Si Eun warns someone threateningly, “I asked you to stop.”
“Weak Hero” will premiere at the Busan International Film Festival in October before being released through wavve later this year. Check out the new trailer below!
