‘The Tragedy of One’ hints at thrilling, dark tale in new promos

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.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
