Watch: Kang Ha Neul And Ha Ji Won Are Tangled In A Web Of Secrets In “Curtain Call” Preview
The first teaser for the upcoming drama “Curtain Call” has been released!
KBS2’s “Curtain Call” is a drama series that follows the story of Ja Geum Soon (Go Doo Shim), a North Korean woman who goes to South Korea and founds Paradise Hotel. With not much time left, she ropes in theatre actor Yoo Jae Heon (Kang Ha Neul) to fulfill her last wish, dragging him into a web of secrets, truths, and lies as he pretends to be her grandson and becomes tangled up with Ja Geum Soon’s own family.
“Curtain Call” is one of the most anticipated dramas to be aired during the last half of 2022, and the newly released teaser has only served to elevate viewers’ excitement.
The preview shows off the cast’s mesmerizing acting skills as scenes flash between past and present at a quick pace, showing sneak peeks of the grand story to come.
Ja Geum Soon appears to be reminiscing on past memories as she stares at a picture frame when suddenly, the scene cuts to the past where a man and a woman (Kang Ha Neul and Ha Ji Won) are being chased by something as they run for their lives, only to abruptly stop and gaze fondly at each other.
Right after that is a scene showing the man (Kang Ha Neul) donning a North Korean military uniform as he shouts, “The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea!” Tensions grow at the startling sound of gunfire, only for viewers to become somewhat relaxed but slightly confused as a mysterious man (Sung Dong Il) asks Yoo Jae Heon, “Would you like to put on a play with me?”
The mood and music turn mysterious as Park Se Yeon (Ha Ji Won) is shown working inside Paradise Hotel, appearing to be in a rather tense standoff with someone whose identity is not revealed. The preview continues to show scene after scene in a rapid-fire style, throwing in bits of comedy alongside the serious and mysterious moments that leaves viewers wanting to know more.
Lastly, Yoo Jae Heon can be heard saying to Ja Geum Soon, “After I send you away, I must return to where I belong. While I am here, please use me.” The teaser concludes with the drama title seen over a waving curtain, reminiscent of a true curtain call that signals the end of the show.
Producers on the show promised, “You won’t be able to tear your eyes away for even a moment because of these exciting stories and addictive plot lines that can only be found in ‘Curtain Call.'”
