Welp!  I knew i should have dropped when the drama was still lacklustre at episode 5.  I let episode 6 and it's promise of plot progression fool me..but episode 7 is just more of the same nonsense and

Unfortunately I don't have the time to translate it. :D But I hope I can translate the previews and stuff as soon as the drama starts airing.

 

That's OK.  I hope you have time to follow this drama and it lives up to our expectations:blush:

 

Yay! They have uploaded the new Jungwoo + Jamie clip on YouTube. Once again no idea what they are saying but I am certainly appreciating that chemistry:getmygrooveon:

Namgoong Min Talks About Teamwork With Co-Stars Lee Chung Ah And AOA’s Seolhyun In Upcoming Drama “Awaken”

Namgoong Min shared more details about his upcoming drama “Awaken.”

“Awaken” is a murder mystery drama that will follow the connections between mysterious events unfolding in the present and the secrets behind an enigmatic incident that took place in a village 28 years ago.

Namgoong Min will star in the drama as Do Jung Woo, the eccentric but brilliant team leader of a special task force at the National Police Agency, while AOA’s Seolhyun will play passionate police officer Gong Hye Won. Lee Chung Ah will also star in the drama as FBI agent Jamie, who was adopted as a young child and returns to Korea to solve the serial killer case connected to her lost memories of her childhood from 28 years ago.

When asked why he chose to star in this drama, Namgoong Min said, “I was drawn to the fresh script. I really liked that it was not a one-dimensional mystery in which detectives solve problems while investigating murder cases. I thought it was interesting how there is a hidden story behind the main story.”

Concerning his character that is a 180-degree transformation from his previous projects, he commented, “Do Jung Woo is a character who is usually sloppy and sly, but when he is working on a case, he changes into someone mysterious and serious. I thought that was one of his charms.”

Does anyone else feel like the promotion for the drama is kind of...quiet?  The TVN drama Mr Queen with Shin Hye-sun comes out two weeks later on TVN and has had way more promotion. This drama is coming out in 9 days, successful and experienced director, lots of well-known actors and it is starring Nam Goong Min in his comeback drama after the major success Hot Stove League.  You think they would make a bigger deal of the drama but the promo feels so muted. I do wonder if they are keeping things subdued because of the controversy associated with Seolhyun?

Watch: Namgoong Min, Lee Chung Ah, And AOA’s Seolhyun Face Dangerous Secrets In “Awaken” Highlight Reel

tvN has released a highlight reel ahead of the premiere of “Awaken”!

“Awaken” is a murder mystery drama that will follow the connections between mysterious events unfolding in the present and the secrets behind an enigmatic incident that took place in a village 28 years ago.

Namgoong Min will star in the drama as Do Jung Woo, the eccentric but brilliant team leader of a special task force at the National Police Agency, while AOA’s Seolhyun will play passionate police officer Gong Hye Won. Lee Chung Ah will also star in the drama as FBI agent Jamie, who was adopted as a young child and returns to Korea to solve the serial killer case connected to her lost memories of her childhood from 28 years ago.

The highlight reel begins with the arrival of a mysterious letter that foreshadows a serial murder. True to the content of the letter, a series of murders disguised as suicide occur, and Do Jung Woo, Gong Hye Won, and Jamie team up to go after the truth.

However, things don’t go smoothly as suspicions and doubt surface between Do Jung Woo and Jamie. Jamie asks him if they saw each other before, and he eyes her with disdain as he wonders the same question out loud.

On top of that, another incident called the “White Night Village Disaster” that occurred 28 years ago is brought back to light. The two cases are shrouded in deep mystery, and the haunting secrets may be linked to the detectives themselves.

Gong Hye Won approaches Jamie and demands if she’s suspecting Do Jung Woo. Gong Hye Won defends him, saying, “Although he could be a bit precarious, he’s not hiding anything.” To that, Jamie bluntly says, “He doesn’t look precarious. He looks dangerous.”

At the end of the clip, Jamie accuses Do Jung Woo as the culprit, and Do Jung Woo asks, “Do I really look like that kind of person to you?” After a brief pause, he says in an eerie voice, “Then I guess I must be the culprit.”

I'm late to the party, and maybe this has been mentioned already, but the stills / look of Nam Goong Min totally have a Jang Hyuk vibe. At first I thought it was him, especially in that selfie from page 1. Is that just me?

Thanks for the article!  I'm so excited! Do Jung Woo already looks and sounds like such a unique character. NGM! is such a chameleon

Then he talked about Lee Chung Ah’s character Jamie. He shared, “Jamie is an FBI-turned-investigator who came from the States to help investigate the murder case Do Jung Woo’s team is working on. From the first meeting, Do Jung Woo and Jamie doubt each other, and they maintain a careful, delicate relationship. They are both alike and different, which will add more fun to the drama.”

This part from the article and the teasers makes me look forward to their interaction a lot!  Looks like there are going to be lots of fun and sparks onscreen:lol:

 

I am also so  interested in how the Yoon Sun Woo character plays into the story.  There isn't much information about him and he looks very mysterious but appears to be one of the most important characters..

i can see a tiny similarity because of the moustache but other than that their facial features are very different.

Do Jung Woo and Jamie has such great chemistry together, but her memories from the past about little kids I think maybe they could be brother and sister? I think he has painful memories about fire too like she had.

 

:sweat:That is a possibility too. They definitely have some kind of history together. I hope they are not siblings because that would be a waste of this electric chemistry between them and Do Jung Woo teasing her about confessing would become kind of creepy:tears:

 

You know I was just thinking if there is romance it will be his first in a long time. NGM doesn't seem to do romances in his drama lately. He hasn't had a love storyline in a few years. Maybe he has an agreement with his girlfriend haha?:P

I know and agree with you!  It will really be a waste of time and talent of two strong actors, but now this option is the most possible, but I will also hope that I'm wrong and their relationship is not native blood.

Sigh...It will be a real pity. Maybe I will just assume the connection is blood related so I don't end up shipping the characters and getting disappointed:persevere:  If they aren't related and I get surprised with some romance then that is even better lol!:lol:

Upcoming Mystery Drama “Awaken” Gives Closer Look At Character Ties With Relationship Chart

 

Upcoming mystery drama “Awaken” has shared its intriguing character chart!

tvN’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Awaken” stars Namgoong Min, AOA’s Seolhyun, and Lee Chung Ah. The story follows the connections between mysterious events unfolding in the present and the secrets behind an enigmatic incident that took place in a village 28 years ago.

The first group of characters are from the special team of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. The team’s leader and senior policeman is Do Jung Woo, played by Namgoong Min. His team consists of his fellow inspectors Gong Hye Won (Seolhyun), Jang Ji Wan (Lee Shin Young), and Yoon Seok Pil (Choi Dae Chul). They are also joined by former FBI agent and current expert criminal profiler Jamie (Lee Chung Ah).

There is also an interesting relationship between Do Jung Woo, Gong Hye Won, and Jamie. While Gong Hye Won has feelings for Do Jung Woo, his feelings for her are not marked. At the same time, there is an unknown relationship between him and Jamie.

Characters at MODU include CEO Jang Yong Sik (Jang Hyuk Jin) and programmer Moon Jae Woong (Yoon Sun Woo).

The first three murder victims are also listed, including 19-year-old student Kim Young Joon, 54-year-old Park Gyu Tae, and 32-year-old Baek Seung Jae. The difference in their ages serves as a big mystery for the police team as they try to discover what the three victims have in common.

News program XVN’s “Lee Ji Wook’s News Zoom-In” also serves as a big barrier for the team. Lee Ji Wook (Yoon Kyung Ho) is an XVN reporter who clashes with Do Jung Woo as he engages the public in the murder case.

Additional characters at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency are deputy general manager Hwang Byung Chul (Kim Won Hae), information manager Lee Taek Jo (Baek Ji Won), and National Forensic Service (NFS) pathologist Min Yoo Ra (Kang Rae Yeon).

Find out how all these characters connect back to the police team by watching tvN’s “Awaken,” which premieres on November 30 at 9 p.m. KST.
