OCN’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Rugal has revealed intense character teasers for its leads Choi Jin-hyuk and Park Sung-woong.
In the drama, Choi Jin-hyuk (Justice) plays an elite detective on a mission to expose the criminal organization Argos. In retaliation, Park Sung-woong’s (The Smile Has Left Your Eyes) character, the mastermind behind Argos, instructs his men to kill the detective’s wife and child and blind him. Choi’s character is then approached by the National Intelligence Service to become a member of a crime-fighting group called Rugal, which uses “human weapons” powered by biotechnology. He is fitted with a pair of artificial eyes that have special powers and sent to track Argos again.
The first teaser below opens with Choi, clad in black, walking into a white room in what seems to be Rugal’s headquarters. His artificial eyes scan the weapons laid out on a table, then he picks up a revolver, loads it, and points it at the camera while staring intensely. His character’s name—Rugal’s Artificial Eyes, Kang Ki-beom—is displayed on the screen as he announces, “Bad guy? Got to catch those who tramped on you.” He proceeds to dramatically practice shooting the gun at his opponent.
In Park Sung-woong’s teaser, he is seen walking through an underground dungeon. His teaser is in tones of red, signifying danger and evil. He reaches a large room full of the masked men of Argos and stands commanding them. His voice narrates, “You can’t just work using rage. Welcome to my world,” as Park stares into the camera with an evil expression. The text on the screen introduces him as Argos’s Devil Leader, Hwang Deuk-gu.
Rugal is based on a hit webcomic of the same name and helmed by PD Kang Cheol-woo, whose past works include My Secret Romance (2017) and Something About 1% (2016). It is scheduled to premiere on March 16 as OCN’s first-ever thriller on its Monday-Tuesday time slot.
