JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong showed love for his friend Choi Jin Hyuk and his upcoming drama “Rugal”!

 

Choi Jin Hyuk will be starring in the new OCN drama “Rugal”—an adaptation of the webtoon of the same name—as Kang Ki Bum, a detective who embarks on a dangerous quest to bring down a powerful terrorist organization named Argos. After suffering a devastating tragedy, Kang Ki Bum ends up receiving a set of artificial eyes and joining an organization named Rugal, which has gathered a team of “human weapons” with special powers created through biotechnology.

 

On March 4, Kim Jaejoong took to Instagram to show his support for Choi Jin Hyuk. Posting two photos of a coffee truck that he had sent to the set of “Rugal” as a gift, the star wrote, “[The cast and crew] of the OCN drama ‘Rugal’ is working hard and toiling away during these difficult times. Friend, stay strong!”

 

Kim Jaejoong then added the hashtags “Rugal” and “Choi Jin Hyuk.”

 

The photos show a coffee truck adorned with photos of Choi Jin Hyuk and a banner that reads, “I’m cheering on Choi Jin Hyuk—an awesome friend and an awesome actor. Kim Jaejoong.” A second banner placed next to the truck reads, “To actor Choi Jin Hyuk and the cast and crew of the drama ‘Rugal,’ please gain strength during filming by drinking a warm cup of coffee! From Kim Jaejoong.”

Hi booha, thanks for sharing this. As far as I remember some years ago when Choi Jin Hyuk sent a message of encouragement to  Kim Jae Joong during their MS. He appeared in the radio show FM4U’s 2’O Clock when he did that. Choi Jin Hyuk said, “I’m personally not acquainted with him. From what I know, we’ll be entering the army at different locations." Both were born 1986. So, I guess they became close when they were at the Army. They enlisted in the army on the same day, I know.  :lol:

*** “Rugal” has revealed new stills of Choi Jin Hyuk and Park Sung Woong who represent good and evil. There's tension between the two of them. This is the center to the story of ‘Rugal.’ In the new stills, we see Kang Ki Bum’s first encounter with Hwang Deuk Gu, the leader of Argos (played by Park Sung Woong). In the 2nd picture, CJH was dressed in his formal police uniform, soaked in rain with anger on his face. I look forward to the interaction between Choi Jin Hyuk and Park Sung Woong, who have brought their characters to life with their incredible acting. Can't wait for “Rugal” to premiere on March 28 at 10:50 p.m. KST. I hope the drama is bound to be a runaway hit.

:lol:

Watch: Choi Jin Hyuk, Jung Hye In, And Park Sun Ho Are Haunted By Ghosts Of Their Past In “Rugal”

Drama Preview  Mar 11, 2020  by C. Hong

RHUE6KD.jpg

With a little over two weeks until its premiere, OCN’s upcoming drama “Rugal” has released a new teaser.

 

“Rugal” is based on a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of an elite detective (Choi Jin Hyuk) who attempts to bring down a nationwide criminal organization named Argos. When he is targeted by the powerful criminals behind Argos, he loses his wife, his eyes, and is framed for murder. An organization named Rugal, which is building a team of “human weapons” with special powers created through biotechnology, offers him a chance to rebuild his life through a set of artificial eyes and the chance to wipe out Argos once and for all.

 

The new teaser begins with Choi Jin Hyuk experiencing flashbacks of the brutal murder of his wife as the doctors in Rugal install his artificial eyes. The teaser explains that “Rugal” is a combination of the Chinese characters for “tears” and “dry” and states, “When your tears run dry, you become a monster.”

 

Juxtaposed with scenes of Park Sung Woong (who plays one of the top villains behind Argos), Choi Jin Hyuk, Jung Hye In, and Park Sun Ho struggle to adjust to their new biotechnology. Even though their new weapons make them stronger in a fight, they continue to be haunted by memories from their past.

The teaser also promises high-stakes action scenes, including car crashes, explosions, and choreographed fight scenes. At the end of the clip, the members of Rugal are shocked and horrified to come across the evidence of Argos’ crimes in a warehouse, and Choi Jin Hyuk and Park Sung Woong face off for the first time.

Check out the teaser below!

Hi booha, thanks for sharing this.  I noticed that OCN has its own very particular style of dramas. They are the expert of thriller, action, and mystery dramas. They also have a bit of U.S. series vibes. OCN dramas are often dealing with the theme of crimes, cults, & drugs. I started liking the channel after watching “Save Me”, “Strangers from Hell”, & “Tunnel”. Now, here's another drama from them,  "Rugal" if you like OCN style. :lol:

Webtoon-Based Dramas "Meow, The Secret Boy" and "Rugal", What's the Next "Itaewon Class"?

 

photo1163739.jpg

 

Webtoon dramas are in bloom this year. Expectations are high on "Rugal" and "Meow, the Secret Boy" coming this March, on whether they'll bring the originals' imagination to life.

 

photo1163738.jpg

 

The upcoming OCN drama "Rugal" is a drama based on a webtoon of the same name published in Toomix. "Rugal" is a human action hero drama about a former elite police officer who ends up losing not only his beloved wife, but also his eyes, and is accused of being a murderer. The drama follows his fight against criminal organizations after he obtains artificial eyes with special abilities crafted by the biotechnology organization "Rugal".

 

Choi Jin-hyuk tackles the role of Kang Ki-beom, the character who discovers his abilities thanks to Rugal after losing his wife and eyes to Argos. His co-stars are Park Sung-woong and Jo Dong-hyuk. Since it's a science fiction webtoon, expectations are high for the reality of 'heroes' that will be shown in the drama. The heroes who do their parts out of sight from people and the action that is full of excitement are the key points to watch.

Spoiler

 

Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Rugal” is a sci-fi action thriller starring Choi Jin Hyuk as Kang Ki Bum, an elite detective who attempts to bring down a nationwide terrorist organization named Argos. In the process, he ends up being targeted by the powerful criminals behind Argos—led by the evil villain Hwang Deuk Goo (played by Park Sung Woong)—and not only does he lose his beloved wife and both of his eyes, but he is also framed for murder.

After joining an organization named Rugal, which has gathered a team of “human weapons” with special powers created through biotechnology, Kang Ki Bum receives a set of artificial eyes and sets out on a quest to wipe out Argos once and for all.

According to the drama’s production crew, the fierce and charismatic cast go from lethal to friendly and playful the moment that the cameras stop rolling. The producers of “Rugal” remarked, “The atmosphere on set is always cheerful, harmonious, and loving.”

Praising the actors for their strong chemistry and teamwork, they went on, “The strength of the ‘Rugal’ cast, who are able to perfectly pull off their powerful characters, can be found in the fact that they always enjoy filming. From the very first episode, you’ll be able to sense their deep chemistry and flawless teamwork.”

Choi Jin Hyuk, Park Sung Woong, And More Talk About What “Rugal” Means, Working Out For Action Scenes, And Ratings Promise

Soompi  Mar 23, 2020   by C. Hong
zu0l8Zs.jpg

On March 23, OCN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Rugal” held an online press conference with director Kang Chul Woo and actors Choi Jin Hyuk, Park Sung Woong, Jo Dong Hyuk, Jung Hye In, Han Ji Wan, and Park Sun Ho.

“Rugal” is a sci-fi action thriller about a special organization named Rugal that uses biotechnological enhancements to fight against a major terrorist organization named Argos. Choi Jin Hyuk stars as Kang Ki Bum, a police detective who loses his wife and both his eyes to Argos and receives bionic eyes from Rugal in order to pursue his revenge. Park Sung Woong co-stars as Hwang Deuk Goo, the greatest villain in Argos.

 

When asked about the meaning of “Rugal,” director Kang Chul Woo said, “It comes from the Chinese characters for ‘tears’ and ‘dry.’ The main character, played by Choi Jin Hyuk, loses both his eyes and receives new bionic eyes. ‘Rugal’ represents how his emotions dry up and he becomes a monster in order to pursue his revenge.”

 

The drama is based on a webtoon and the director said, “We stuck to the two major themes of the story: one man’s revenge and the use of bionic eyes. Because the genre is sci-fi, we worked hard to tell a story that felt real and not fake. To be honest, this is a new genre for Korean dramas. The cinematography, sound effects, and CGI will be different from what you’ve seen before.

Spoiler

Choi Jin Hyuk said, “I think many men will enjoy this drama because it has a lot of action scenes. The characters in the drama are reborn as human weapons through biotechnology after enduring emotional pain. It’s a black comedy that shows their growth and pain. I hope that many people can find something to like in it. You can also see it as a new challenge in a new genre.”

 

Park Sung Woong said, “I’ve come back to playing villains. I debated how to come off strong and play him differently from regular villains. I found that it’s fine as long as you’re not in your right mind. Normally I prepare about 70-80 percent and go with the flow when I’m on set, but I gave 120 percent every day on ‘Rugal.'”

 

Jung Hye In, who plays Rugal soldier Song Mi Na, said, “It would be a lie to say I didn’t feel any pressure about taking on the role. I was really nervous during the first shoot because I wanted to do well. The director and my seniors gave me a lot of advice on set. When I monitored my scenes, I could see my body was stiff and tight because of my nervousness. The seniors told me to abandon the need to do well and just immerse myself in the situation. That helped me a lot.”

 

Park Sun Ho said, “Because my character has an enhanced body, I think of the body I created through exercise as my tool.” Park Sung Woong added, “The male actors take off their clothes a lot, so we exercised a lot. I didn’t drink for 60 days and went to the gym and boxed. Choi Jin Hyuk and Jo Dong Hyuk also exercised a lot.” He added jokingly, “Park Sun Ho is the slimmest, but he says his body is his tool.”

 

Park Sun Ho said, “Because this is a new genre for Korean dramas, I would like it if we got the highest ratings for an OCN drama.” Choi Jin Hyuk said, “I think ratings are a matter of luck. Since this drama stars actors from ‘Life on Mars,’ ‘Tunnel,’ and ‘Bad Guys,’ I think it would be nice if we could get around nine percent. If we hit nine percent, I’m thinking we can do a second season.”

“Rugal” premiered on March 28 and captivated viewers with a fast-paced storyline.

The first episode set up the conflict between special organization Rugal, which turns humans into weapons using biotechnology, and the terror organization Argos.

Ahead of the second episode, the drama has shared stills of the team of heroes at Rugal who are to go up against Argos. As they are part of a secret organization, the team must carry out all of their missions with stealth and secrecy. Director Choi Geun Chul (Kim Min Sang) gives the team orders, and Han Tae Woong (Jo Dong Hyuk), Song Mi Na (Jung Hye In), and Lee Kwang Chul (Park Sun Ho) work with Kang Ki Beom (Choi Jin Hyuk) as their leader.

 

The team will be infiltrating the wedding ceremony of Argos leader Go Yong Deok (Park Jung Hak) and Choi Ye Won (Han Ji Wan) to create discord in the Argos organization. The four team members will each have their own tasks and they will work together to try and bring their enemies down.

 

Chief producer (CP) Song Jin Sun stated, “The upcoming episode will follow the action-packed first mission of the Rugal team. We believe the story of heroes who have immense power but must learn to control their abilities as they work to build great teamwork will be interesting and draw viewers in.”

 

How things turn out for the first mission of the Rugal team will be revealed in the second episode of “Rugal,” which will air at 10:50 p.m. KST on March 29.
