tvN’s upcoming drama The Tragedy of One has released its main poster and character posters.
Based on Rintaro Norizuki’s novel “Ichi no Higeki,” The Tragedy of One tells the stories of the ugly secrets, desires, and salvation of the people living in Royal the Hill, a luxurious sanctuary exclusive to the country’s top 1 percent. The drama stars Ji Jin-hee (Undercover), Yoon Se-ah (Stranger 2), and Kim Hye-eun (Graceful Friends).
In the released black-and-white main poster, Baek Soo-hyeon (Ji Jin-hee), Seo Eun-soo (Yoon Se-ah), and Cha Seo-young (Kim Hye-eun) take center stage. They are lurking behind the shadows while peeking through the gaps of what could be the light of salvation. The words on the poster read, “The moment the truth was swallowed, the tragedy began,” which indicates the birth of an unfortunate event that will shake the characters’ lives.
Similarly, the character posters feature the three main stars, hidden in the shadows, with only the streaks of light showing parts of their faces. Soo-hyeon’s lips are tightly pressed together, a sign that he represses his emotions. In his poster is a phrase that says, “Losing the way.”
Meanwhile, Eun-soo is an image of a true graceful woman who comes from an influential family. However, no matter how perfect her life seems, even she will get swept up by a dark incident. The text in her poster reads, “Standing at the end of the road.”
Lastly, Seo-young stares coldly into the light of truth, with determination evident in her eyes. The statement in her poster reads, “Deviating from the path.”
The Tragedy of One will premiere on August 4 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
