OCN’s upcoming drama “Strangers From Hell” has released a new teaser!

 

The drama is a mystery thriller about an aspiring novelist named Yoon Jong Woo (played by Im Siwan) who moves to Seoul to pursue his dreams, but is thrust into an unexpected hell due to the strange residents of his dorm.

 

In the teaser, Yoon Jong Woo checks out Eden Dormitory, his dingy new home, for the first time. When Uhm Bok Soon (played by Lee Jung Eun), the owner of the dormitory, asks, “You’re not from Seoul, are you?” he replies, “I’m from [a town] outside of Seoul.”

 

As Yoon Jong Woo walks around Eden Dormitory, he is introduced to its strange residents. When Hong Nam Bok (played by Lee Joong Ok) eyes him for a second too long, Yoon Jong Woo frowns as he asks, “What are you staring at?” The clip then flashes to Hong Nam Bok, who stands alone in the hallway, holding a knife behind his back.

 

The teaser then cycles through clips of its residents slapping themselves in the face, digging a hole in the ground, and trying to remove an ankle bracelet. The video also introduces the character Seo Moon Jo (played by Lee Dong Wook), a dentist who lives in the eerie dormitory. As Uhm Bok Soon narrates, “There’s only fine young people left [in the dormitory], right?” Yoon Jong Woo wears an uneasy expression as he faces Seo Moon Jo, who looks relaxed and slightly pleased.

 

The clip finally ends with Yoon Jong Woo shouting and shoving a man in frustration.

 

Check out the clip below!

 

 

“Strangers From Hell” premieres on August 31 at 10:30 p.m. as the follow-up to “Watcher.” Check out another teaser here!

Im Siwan Sends Yeo Jin Goo A Surprise Gift On The Set Of tvNâs âHotel Del Lunaâ

 

Im Siwan surprised Yeo Jin Goo on the set of tvN’s “Hotel Del Luna” with a snack truck!

 

Im Siwan wrote a message on the truck as his “Strangers From Hell” character Yoon Jong Woo: “Eden Gosiwon (Dorm) hiring a manager. [From] Yoon Jong Woo, Room 303.”

 

 

Yeo Jin Woo responded in kind as his character Goo Chan Sung, the manager of Hotel Del Luna. “Room 303 Yoon Jong Woo… human guests stay in room 404. Should I book the room for you? #YoonJongWoo #ImSiwan #SurpriseGift #ThankYouSoMuchHyung.”


The two actors have maintained their friendship since they first worked together in the 2012 MBC drama “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” Yeo Jin Goo as the child counterpart of Kim Soo Hyun‘s character, and Im Siwan as the younger version of Song Jae Hee‘s character. Now, seven years later, the two have grown into strong leading actors.

Watch: “Strangers From Hell” Releases Spine-Chilling Highlight Video + 3 Keywords To Look Out For Ahead Of Its Premiere

Upcoming OCN drama “Strangers From Hell” has released a chilling highlight reel as well as three keywords to keep in mind ahead of its premiere!

 

Based on a popular webtoon of the same name, “Strangers from Hell” is a thriller drama about the mysterious incidents that a man encounters after moving into a dormitory due to the residents that live in the same building.

 

Im Siwan plays Yoon Jong Woo, an aspiring writer who moves to Seoul from the countryside for his new job, and Lee Dong Wook is Seo Moon Jo, a dentist who owns a clinic near the dormitory. Lee Jung Eun will take the role of the dormitory owner Young Bok Soon who is a friendly woman that takes care of the people living in the dormitory. Lee Hyun Wook will play a mysterious, cold man named Yoo Ki Hyuk while Park Jong Hwan will play Byun Deuk Jong who has a habit of exaggerating his laughter and stuttering his words.

 

Lee Joong Ok will take the role of Hong Nam Bok who has problems adjusting to society.

 

The video starts off with Yoon Jong Woo dragging his suitcase up a steep slope to get to his new home. He looks up at the dilapidated building with a mix of disbelief and disgust. Young Bok Soon shows him his new room full of stains and dust while claiming he won’t be able to find another place like it at such a cheap price in Seoul. Yoon Jong Woo’s expression shows he thinks that it couldn’t get any worse than this.

 

On his first day, Yoon Jong Woo bumps into a thug who warns him everyone in the building is crazy. The only sane greeting he encounters is from the dentist Seo Moon Jo who doesn’t seem quite normal as well. Then things start turning strange with dead bodies ending up in garbage bags and the word “die” scribbled in a hidden diary.

 

Towards the end, Young Bok Soon warns him not to go to the fourth floor, since that’s for women and it’s unoccupied at the moment, but Yoon Jong Woo can’t suppress his curiosity and heads up there anyways.

 

Watch the highlight reel below!

 

 

 

Here are also three keywords to get you even more hyped up for the drama’s premiere:

Spoiler

1. Synchronization

“Strangers From Hell” is based on a webtoon of the same name, which has accumulated 800 million views. Ever since the production was finalized, fans have been very curious about the casting, and many are totally satisfied with the lineup of Im Siwan, Lee Dong Wook, Lee Jung Eun, Lee Hyun Wook, Lee Joong Ok, and Yoo Ki Hyuk.

On top of that, the character Seo Moon Jo is a reinterpreted and recreated character, so viewers are especially looking forward to Lee Dong Wook’s transformation. Expectations are high over what kind of acting the trusted performers will show in the drama.

2. Mystery

Eden Dormitory is an old and shabby building where rent is only 190,000 won (approximately $156). However, this isn’t just an ordinary old dormitory, but it’s a dirty one full of grime and filth. In addition, there is a constant stream of strange events, ranging from suicides to missing people. The mystery is heightened even more because of the fourth floor that nobody has access to.

3. Totally Engrossing Story

The cast’s perfect synchronization as well as a mysterious plot will present the viewers with an overwhelming sense of immersion. There will be scenes that will make them hold their breath, and the heightened tension will keep everyone on their toes. The realistic scenes of a creepy dormitory with a strange vibe and the subtle sounds of thrill will combine to make shivers run down their spines. This movie-like drama will definitely be one of the highlights as summer comes to an end!

“Strangers From Hell” premieres August 31 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Check out the character relationship chart here!

“Strangers From Hell” Director On Working With Im Siwan And Lee Dong Wook, Heading His First Drama, And More

 

53e6634f093948c094370b22c3e773d5.jpeg?s=

 

“Strangers From Hell” director Lee Chang Hee talked about his experience working on his first drama, what to expect from the first broadcast, and more!

 

The upcoming mystery thriller tells the story of a young man who moves up to Seoul and experiences a hell created by others while living in a strange dormitory. It stars Im SiwanLee Dong Wook, Lee Jung Eun, Lee Hyun Wook, Park Jong Hwan, and Lee Joong Ok.

 

The drama is led by director Lee Chang Hee, who has previously won the Top Excellence award at the 10th Annual Mise En Scène Short Film Festival for his film “Den” (literal translation) and has received praise for his 2018 movie “The Vanished.” Viewers are highly anticipating what kind of excitement he will bring to television screens in his collaboration with OCN.

 

Lee Chang Hee discussed his upcoming work in an interview with media outlet Dailian. Regarding how he came to direct “Strangers From Hell,” he stated, “It’s a given as a director to want to make works from fun and interesting stories. I found the original webtoon to be interesting, and I got excited to embody it through video. There was no need to hesitate ⁠— I got the offer and accepted it the next day. I’m working hard to not undermine the original work, but to also tell a similar yet different story. I’d like to create a story that will be fun for both those who have read the webtoon and those who have not.”

 

“Strangers From Hell” will be Lee Chang Hee’s first time directing a drama. When asked about the differences between dramas and movies, he said, “If a movie is about developing the substance [of the story] in a given time, a drama is a project in which you can build empathy with a character over a longer period of time. The benefit of working in dramatic cinema is that you combine the strong points of a drama with the impact of a movie. I’m filming with the mindset that I’m making 10 interesting 1-hour movies or a movie with 10 climaxes.”

 

The director also provided his take on the drama’s central theme of “a hell created by strangers in a dormitory,” saying, “The setting of a dormitory is very ironic. It could be seen as a hopeful and romantic place, but in other regards, it can also be a place full of desperation, packed with the personal hells that modern people carry. The irony is maximized by [the fact that] a dormitory is a place where you share the same air with complete strangers. ‘Strangers From Hell’ is a work that started with the question: ‘In a place where you can most closely feel strangers breathing, what might happen if those strangers are murderers?'”

 

Lee Chang Hee also shared praise for the cast. “Objectively speaking, the actors don’t really look like their characters, but they do such a good job of portraying them. For example, Park Jong Hwan is actually an extremely handsome man. Im Siwan is able to get really immersed in a scene, and the sheer presence of Lee Dong Wook created great energy. Lee Jung Eun is like a magician who can turn any situation into a reality. While each of the characters’ individual appeals is strong, they shine even more when they’re together.”

 

The director stated, “‘Strangers From Hell’ is a drama that anyone can watch because of the charms provided by its psychological thrills and fresh characters. We put a lot of effort in both the acting and directing and worked hard to hook viewers in with every episode. I would appreciate it if you started this journey together with the main character Jong Woo, who closely interacts with the strangers of his dormitory.”

 

“Strangers From Hell” premieres August 31 at 10:30 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the latest preview here!

Hi sky5joyous, thanks for sharing this.  I don't think they're good friends with LDW prior working together in this drama. I think they just became close while filming. Looking forward to their beautiful bromance in the drama! “Strangers from Hell” premieres August 31 at 10:30 p.m. KST as the follow-up to “Watcher.” :P
