SBS’ new Friday-Saturday drama “Revenant” unveiled its intense script practice site.
SBS’ new Friday-Saturday drama “Revenant” (written by Kim Eun Hee, directed by Lee Jung Rim, produced by Studio S, BA Entertainment), which will premiere at 10 PM on June 23rd, is a Korean-style occult mystery drama about a woman possessed by a devil and a man who can see the devil and seeks the truth behind the mysterious deaths surrounding the five bodies. In November last year, prior to the full-fledged filming, director Lee Jung Rim, writer Kim Eun Hee, actors Kim Tae Ri, Oh Jung Se, Hong Kyung, Park Ji Young, Kim Won Hae, Ye Soo Jung and Jin Seon Kyu attended the script practice.
First of all, “Gu San Yeong” (played by Kim Tae Ri) is a public prosecutor who has been preparing for the 9th-grade civil service exam. She gets entangled in mysterious deaths after receiving her late father’s belongings. Kim Tae Ri led the dramatic narrative by going back and forth between the two faces of “Gu San Yeong” who always does her best even in harsh reality and “Gu San Yeong” who is possessed by “evil” that digs into human desire. Her face turned red, she shed tears and vented the desire of evil spirits, creating tension and fear. Everyone at the site held their breath and concentrated.
The acting transformation of Oh Jung Se, who plays the role of “Yeom Hae Sang”, also made it impossible to take our eyes off him for a moment. Folklore professor “Yeom Hae Sang”, who has been able to see spirits and gods since he was young, is a person who cannot easily get along with others and focuses only on folklore study. Oh Jung Se, who showed a wide acting spectrum by appearing in various works regardless of genre, showed off his character digestive power as if he brought a real scholar who has been struggling to find out the truth surrounding evil spirits.
Actors we should pay attention to also appeared, including Hong Kyung (as Lee Hong Sae, a former police officer and a violent crime investigation unit inspector) and Jin Seon Kyu (as Gu Kang Mo, San Yeong’s father and folklorist).
Great actors with strong acting skills raised expectations for the birth of a well-made Korean occult mystery. Veteran actors such as Park Ji Young (as San Yeong’s mother “Yoon Gyeong Moon”), Kim Won Hae (as Hong Sae’s partner “Seo Mun Chun”) and Ye Soo Jung (as San Yeong’s paternal grandmother “Kim Seok Ran”) raised the work’s level of completion. In addition, trustworthy actors who are active in movies, dramas and plays filled the work by making special appearances in each episode.
Meanwhile, “Revenant”, which is attracting attention as a new work by genre master Kim Eun Hee, is directed by Lee Jung Rim, who showed stylish directing skills through the melodrama “VIP”.
