On March 9, tvN’s Confession released video teasers with backstories of the characters of Lee Joon-ho and Yoo Jae-myung.
Joon-ho plays Prosecutor Choi Do-hyun in the show, and his teaser is narrated by Yoo Jae-myung, who plays Detective Ki Choon-ho. Detective Ki sits in a car while looking through documents with information about Choi. It seems as if Ki has gotten a background check done on the prosecutor. He says, “Attorney Choi Do-hyun. A graduate with the second-highest rank in bar exams. His father is on the death row. Did he become a lawyer for a murderer?” This narration is interspersed with several scenes of Choi to give a glimpse into his character.
Meanwhile, Yoo Jae-myung’s character teaser is narrated by Lee Joon-ho. Choi has conducted his own background check on the detective, saying, “He is known as Alligator, a determined and relentless detective. Is he actually chasing the truth, or is he just obsessed? Detective Ki Choon-ho.” Clips of Detective Ki chasing and apprehending criminals are shown throughout the teaser, including a shot of him standing on a terrace looking regretful.
Confession is already generating a lot of interest due to its talented cast. The intriguing character teasers add to the mystery of the characters, leading the viewers to wonder: What exactly is the relationship between the detective and the prosecutor? Will they ever be on the same team?
The series is set to premiere on March 23. It will be taking over the Saturday-Sunday time slot on tvN, which is currently occupied by Romance Is a Bonus Book.
