 O.K. I don`t think @booha will have something against the idea.

Watch: Choi Jin Hyuk Is Determined To Get Revenge In “Rugal”

Mar 20, 2020

OCN’s upcoming drama “Rugal” has revealed a new teaser!

Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Rugal” stars Choi Jin Hyuk as Kang Ki Bum, an elite detective who attempts to bring down a nationwide criminal organization named Argos. In the process, he ends up being targeted by the powerful criminals behind Argos, 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.

In the new teaser, Kang Ki Bum is brought to the hospital, having lost both of his eyes. He narrates, “Because even being alive is humiliating.”

In the next scene, Ki Bum looks in the mirror a new set of artificial eyes, and we hear him say, “You’re going to make me see again?” Choi Geun Chul (played by Kim Min Sang) responds, “Under the condition that you become my agent.”

Hwang Deuk Gu, the leader of Argos (played by Park Sung Woong), says, “Try coming after me until the end,” and Ki Bum says, “I’m going to pay you back for every bit, no, several times what you did to me.”

@larus :)

Hi sorry to say I couldn’t enlarge the char diagram with imgur.  But this is the blog link which has a bigger picture in case someone wants to see it clearly.  ((**https://nabom-house.tistory.com/442))
At the moment I’m trying to translate full character descriptions but I have to see whether I could be able to finish it.  As Rugal is a simple action drama, I didn’t think knowing the details about characters would be important.  But I realized Rugul team members have been fitted with so called bio-mechanic parts which have different functions and short comings. Maybe better for us to read about what they are. It’s possible they will be explained when the drama starts.   
Btw happy to see OCN is putting out a lot of promotion for Rugal.

PS ** Rugal will broadcast Sa & S 10:50PM, K-time

A normal hero story shows one with amazing power defeating evil with fantastic actions,  but <Lugal> is a story about ordinary human beings growing into a hero through the pain of loss.

The wishes of the production team and the writer have materialized with the joining of two actors, Choi Jin-hyuk and Park Sung-woong, in Rugal.   It’s impossible to imagine Kang Ki Bum and Hwang Deuk Gu without these two actors.

 Thank you for all your hard work.

Yeah. I see a lot of promotion. BTS pictures and video, posters, character descriptions.

I don`t know the web comic series  but I feel like they did a good job transforming the manga in a drama. It is a hard work but they have fun filming as well.

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.

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.”

I see that there is a trend these days. Many kdramas want to have two seasons. I  am alright with that with one condition. They have to finish satistactory the first season.

 I might be wrong but it is the first super hero sci fi kind of show for Kdrama land. At least is the first for me. They will use black comedy too. I usually don`t like dramas with over the top villains but for this show it works. I feel like manga/ cartoons characters are becoming alive through this show.

Yeah I know. :blush:  Every drama wishes to have a second season.  So I’m praying hard to the drama king for good ratings for the sake of CJH. :lol:   Kang Ki Bum seems like a best dream character for CJH to play.

ee125cbf3a6144bc9b5b1ac31aa04370.jpeg?s=

Park Sung Woong is taking his “villain face” to a whole new level in OCN’s “Rugal!”

“Rugal” is an upcoming sci-fi action drama about a special organization named Rugal, which turns humans into weapons using biotechnology, and their fight against the terror organization known as Argos. Choi Jin Hyuk stars as Kang Ki Bum, a police detective who loses his wife and both his eyes and is given a pair of bionic eyes by Rugal so that he can pursue revenge. Park Sung Woong co-stars as Hwang Deuk Goo, the ultimate villain behind Argos.

In new stills released by OCN, Park Sung Woong shows that his character is absolutely ruthless even when it comes to people in his own crime syndicate. The stills show a wedding between Go Yong Duk (Park Jung Hak), the mafia boss of Argos, and Choi Ye Won (Han Ji Wan). Everything is peaceful until Hwang Deuk Goo approaches Go Yong Duk and makes the latter’s face darken.

It's almost time for the show to hit. I can't believe 5 months passed so quickly. I remember being so excited about the news back in october. The recent teaser looks so clean. I'm so in love with the stage design. Everything looks really nice but not over the top. I think the stage design for the place &

settings looks better in the drama than in the webtoon. Although the webtoon, everything appears more gritty & darker. Everything just pops here. The color & lighting. Rugal headquaters looks super flashy. I'm excited to hear the music composition & ost. The music in the teaser sounds so cool.

In the photo released on this day, Kang Gi-beom's situation arouses curiosity. The look of Kang Ki-beom, who pulled the gun out of his surroundings, suggests an unusual incident. The appearance of Kang Ki-beom, who has fallen as a prisoner in the following photo, also arouses interest. Kang Ki-beom can only walk if he loses his eyes and relies on a prison guard. I wonder how Kang Ki-bum, whose life has changed in a day, will be resurrected as a human weapon hero. Argus' real-world counterpart, Hwang Deuk-gu, will face the atmosphere with a strong impression from the first appearance.

“Rugal” Cast Shares Exciting Points To Look Out For Ahead Of Premiere

Mar 28, 2020
by L. Kim
45f32115652e437c823bc6b16bb8a1f9.jpeg?s=

The cast of OCN’s “Rugal” has given viewers reasons why they should tune into the new drama!

Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Rugal” centers around Kang Ki Bum (Choi Jin Hyuk), an elite detective who attempts to bring down a nationwide criminal organization named Argos. He ends up framed for murder as well as losing his family and both of his eyes. After joining the organization Rugal, which has gathered a team of “human weapons,” Kang Ki Bum sets out on a quest to get revenge against Argos.

Choi Jin Hyuk said, “When I received the script, I thought a lot about [if I should do it or not] since it was a genre I’ve never tried before, but as I talked with the director and other crew members, I developed a spirit of challenge.”

Concerning the key point, the actor shared, “There are many difficult scenes because this is an action hero drama, but we are all enjoying filming the drama together.” He added about his teamwork with Park Sung Woong, saying, “He’s a senior actor I really wanted to meet. He’s so cheerful and bright that I’m having fun filming with him.”

Then he said, “Please watch the growth process in which [the members of] ‘Rugal’ are reborn after overcoming their pain and embodies justice against the evil Argos. You’ll find a thrilling action hero drama you’ve never seen before.”

Park Sung Woong, who is playing the villain in this drama, shared that he joined the drama because it can appeal to viewers with various charms and said he’s working out a lot for the action scenes. Concerning his teamwork with his co-stars, he said, “Actor Choi Jin Hyuk gave me a great first impression, and he is a friend who works hard, so it’s comfortable working with him and we have good chemistry. Han Ji Wan and I are also enjoying filming tense scenes. Actor Yoo Sang Hoon is very pure compared to his appearance, so it’s fun to be with him, and actor Kim Da Hyun is familiar with the stage, so her acting is very stable.”

I hope the show keeps the twists that's in the webtoon. Love to see how it plays out on the show. It will make the show super exciting. Tomorrow is that day y'all. I love Rugal team white outfits too btw.

Lmao, I love those gif reactions :lol:. It is basically me too. Waiting 5 months was excruciating but I hope the show delivers in both direction/writing. I know production team & cast put alot into the production & performances.

Question: Does anyone know if this will this be a pure action / black comedy drama without any romance? 

I am asking because:

  • it would be refreshing to watch a pure action drama for once
  • My heart can't take it if Choi Jin Hyuk doesn't get the girl again....  :D

I really want to watch this drama because of CJH, but if they're going to add some kind of messy romance in it I might give this a pass.
