Watch: Lee Sun Gyun Isn’t Afraid Of Danger In New “Payback” Teaser
Get ready for all the action of “Payback” with SBS’s newest teaser for the upcoming drama!
“Payback” tells the thrilling revenge story of those who risk everything to fight a money cartel that has colluded with the law. The drama will give viewers both thrills and catharsis through its portrayal of those who refuse to remain silent as they fight against incompetent and unjust authority in their own way. Lee Sun Gyun will star as reclusive money dealer Eun Yong, and Moon Chae Won will star as Army Major Park Joon Kyung, an elite judicial officer.
The new teaser, which highlights the connections between the characters and is full of thrilling action scenes, starts with Eun Yong entering a prison while dressed up in a suit. Jang Tae Choon (Kang You Seok), a criminal prosecutor who is also Eun Yong’s nephew, can be heard asking his uncle, “So you’re both loan sharks, but you’re different from Chairman Myung?”
Eun Yong then enters the prison cell where Myung In Joo (Kim Hong Pa), the godfather of the Myeongdong private loan market, is already imprisoned. The chairman grins at Eun Yong as he passes by his cell, and tension climbs as Eun Yong glares back.
Later, Eun Yong is confronted by mysterious figures in the elevator, and a three-on-one fight ensues. Amidst shots of other brawls breaking out in the prison between inmates, Eun Yong says, “Every high place is dangerous. But you need to get used to the danger in order to rise up.”
The trailer ends with Eun Yong reaching out a hand towards Jang Tae Choon, saying, “Now take my hand. I’ll make you the top prosecutor in all of Korea.”
A member of the “Payback” production team commented, “In the third teaser, we tried to capture the agony, choice, and conflict between the characters in an impactful way as they come to face the biggest incidents of the storyline. The incidents [in this drama] are unending and complex, so please look forward to ‘Payback,’ which will capture your attention on the small screen with its solid narrative and lethal vibe.”
“Payback” premieres on January 6, 2023 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out the new teaser below!
