Eerie and Sinister Poster Unveiled for “Kingdom” Writer’s New Drama “The Devil” Starring Kim Tae Ri
“The Devil” has unveiled a teaser poster announcing the beginning of an occult mystery drama.
SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama “The Devil” (written by Kim Eun Hee, directed by Lee Jung Lim), which will premiere on June 23, is a Korean occult mystery drama that unravels the mysterious deaths involving a woman plagued by an evil spirit and a man who can see that evil spirit.
“The Devil” is the latest work by writer Kim Eun Hee, a master of the genre who has proven the power of creativity and success with dramas such as “Signal” and “Kingdom.”
Particularly, through “Kingdom,” she created a Joseon-era zombie story different from Western Zombie series, earning a reputation as the queen of the genre. Anticipation is high to see how Kim Eun Hee will unfold the occult genre within the framework of a Korean paradigm.
Furthermore, the lineup of actors is also an exciting factor. Kim Tae Ri takes on the role of Gu San Young, a woman plagued by an evil spirit, Oh Jung Se portrays Yeom Hae Sang, a folklore professor who can see the evil spirit, and Hong Kyung plays Detective Lee Hong Sae, who investigates the mysterious deaths. With the actors’ proven acting skills, their intense transformations are one of the points that viewers look forward to.
In addition, director Lee Jung Lim, who has impressed with his stylish directing before, will bring forth occult visuals and gripping developments.
With the perfect combination of the writer, director, and actors, 2023 is anticipated to witness the birth of a top-notch well-made genre drama.
Furthermore, the “The Devil” team has opened the curtain on the work by releasing a teaser poster that carries a gloomy yet sinister mystery. The hand that seems to be strangling someone’s neck in the depths of the abyss and numerous unknown hands seemingly controlling it emit an eerie vibe.
Especially, the line “I killed someone, but it wasn’t me” hints at the mysterious murder case that will occur, stimulating various imaginations.
The production team explained, “The word The Devil in its literal sense refers to a wicked ghost, but it can also be used to describe a person who engages in malicious behavior. In this way, the drama The Devil tells a story about unknown spirits while simultaneously exploring human stories.”
They added, “The horror brought by the most significant attraction of the occult genre, the thrilling tension created by consecutive mysterious events, and the hidden messages behind the narrative will all be encompassed in this comprehensive drama.”
