‘The Banker’ drops tension-filled second video teaser

On March 13, MBC’s The Banker revealed a second video teaser showcasing power struggles in a bank.

The drama stars Kim Sang-joong as Noh Dae-ho, the branch manager of Daehan Bank in a small town. He is suddenly promoted as Auditor at the bank’s headquarters in Seoul and asked to resolve corruption cases.

The teaser depicts power tussles among the bank’s authority, and the challenges Noh will have to overcome just to do his work. Aside from Kim, Chae Shi-ra, Yoo Dong-geun, Kim Tae-woo, Seo Yi-sook, and Ahn Nae-sang make an appearance in the video.

The teaser opens to an aerial shot of the imposing building of Daehan Bank’s headquarters in Seoul. It is accompanied by the intense violin music from the first teaser. Kim Sang-joong and Chae Shi-ra arrive at the bank with different moods. A male voice, presumably of Yoo Dong-geun who plays 3-time President Kim Sam-do, narrates, “Who do you think is the real owner of this bank?” This is followed by shots of Chae working at the bank, with her voice narrating “Don’t you think you need a witch to rule this place?” Shots of several authority figures in the bank are then shown, including Yoo, Chae, Ahn Nae-sang, and Kim Tae-woo, who talks about normalizing the bank’s operations.

In the next shot, Kim Sang-joong asks Chae, “Can we change things?” to which her reply is “There is a need for change.” There is a flashback to Kim witnessing a woman falling off the top of a building. As clips of him starting work at the bank are shown, his voice in the background narrates, “We can’t hold back anymore. As long as we have principles, we have to fight against their schemes.”

The Banker is set to premiere on March 27.

Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First.
