Confession dropped another video teaser on February 23, amping up the already rising interest in this legal drama.
The teaser begins with the focus on a roll of film. A mysterious man, who is only seen from behind, is shown working subtly and precisely to cut a strip from the film roll, reattaching a different strip in its place. He then labels the roll with date and time, an action that shows how it is possible to manipulate evidence in a manner that tricks the eyes of the people as well as the law. Throughout the teaser, a narration runs in what seems to be Lee Joon-ho’s voice. The narration says, “No matter how true or false, real or fabricated, cases which have been judged once cannot be dealt with again.”
The teaser is interspersed with intense shots of the show’s two leading men, Lee Joon-ho and Yoo Jae-myung, in various thrilling situations, raising interest in the two actors’ performances in the drama. The narration serves the purpose of making the viewers wonder about the principle of “double jeopardy,” which is the central theme of the drama. The principle says that cases once heard cannot be opened again, and the teaser, by masterfully depicting how pieces of evidence are fabricated, succeeds in raising doubts about its effectiveness.
Confession tells of the story of Lawyer Choi Do-hyun, played by Lee, who is working to clear the name of his father who was convicted of murder. This will be Lee Joon-ho’s third drama as lead, after Just Between Lovers (2017-2018) and Greasy Melo (2018). Confession will premiere on March 23.
