The transformation of Ji Oh and Gu Reum’s relationship is one of the key points of the drama.

Kim Rae Won commented, “Although Gu Reum’s character isn’t an easy one to portray due to the nature of the genre, actor Lee Da Hee played it passionately well. She’s a great partner.” Lee Da Hee also praised her co-star, saying, “His delicate and realistic performance is amazing. I watched his acting and referred to it a lot.”

@larus Chingu, how do you expect this drama to be. I am kind of two hearted right now, don't know whether I watch it or not. 

 

I will watch it. It is short, only 12 episodes. But I won`t have expectation. I am hoping it will be good.

Just watching the teasers for LUCA and Sisyphus I am tired with the explosions and action scenes. :lol: I am curious if the plot will captivate my interest. We`ll see.

I didn't know it is short. I will go for it then, maybe will think about watching it or not after seeing how the first 2 episodes are. As for Sisyphus, I agree with you, I didn't expect it to have that much explosions, gun shots and action scenes, I mean those were the only thing the teaser actually had :joy:

“L.U.C.A.” shared a highlight video that previews more of the show’s action and thrills!

The upcoming tvN drama is about a man named Ji Oh (Kim Rae Won) who is being chased for his special abilities, and a violent crimes detective named Gu Reum (Lee Da Hee), who is the only one who remembers him. Kim Sung Oh appears as Lee Son, who is the chief among Ji Oh’s pursuers and used to be part of the special forces.

The new highlight video reveals a further glimpse of the intriguing universe of the story and the impressive action and performances. It begins with a clip of Ji Oh defending himself in a fight as he sets off sparks of blue light, giving a hint of his special abilities. Bloodied from the battle, he looks down at his hands and his voice is heard saying, “I don’t know why I’m here or how I got here.”

The video goes on to show Ji Oh running and fighting to evade his pursuers. Gu Reum says, “I’ve remembered exactly who you are.” Following the scenes of intense fighting, Ji Oh leans on the shoulder of Gu Reum, his only safe haven as he struggles in his lonely battle.

Gu Reum is also shown sleeping on Ji Oh’s shoulder as they sit together. When he takes her hand, Lee Son says as a narration, “He’s always just running away. That was the first time I saw him save someone.” It appears that Ji Oh and Gu Reum have become entwined by fate, and a caption reads, “She is the only one who lives in Ji Oh’s memory.” Ji Oh says, “If I survive this, I’ll go to you.”

Meanwhile, Lee Son and Ji Oh are locked in a chilling showdown, with Lee Son chasing Ji Oh with beast-like instincts. “This is the beginning,” says Lee Son. “But if you don’t show up, I’m going to kill everyone you know.” Ji Oh’s rage reaches its extreme and he shows astounding strength.

The teaser also gives a further look at the employees of the “Human Tech” research center that lies at the core of the story in “L.U.C.A.” Ryu Joong Kwon (played by Ahn Nae Sang) is the research center’s director and he’s obsessed with the idea of creating the perfect human. Lee Son says to him with tears falling down his face, “Make me stronger.”

Jin Kyung plays Hwang Jung Ah, a mysterious character who established Human Tech and hired the greatest scientists for her mission. “A new era will dawn,” she says, making drama fans even more curious about the secrets and plans of the characters in “L.U.C.A.” Meanwhile, Ji Oh becomes stronger as he fights against these foes. He gives off an intense aura as he stands in front of flames, giving the warning, “Try to kill me. I’m going to survive until the end and kill everyone.”

What To Look Out For In Kim Rae Won And Lee Da Hee’s Upcoming Action-Packed Drama “L.U.C.A.”

tvN’s upcoming drama “L.U.C.A.” is nearing its premiere!

“L.U.C.A.” is an action thriller about a man named Ji Oh (Kim Rae Won), who is being chased for his special abilities, and a violent crimes detective named Gu Reum (Lee Da Hee), who is the only one who remembers who he is. It also stars Kim Sung Oh, Kim Sang Ho, Park Hyuk Kwon, Ahn Nae Sang, Jin Kyung, and more.

The drama is being directed by Kim Hong Sun, the master of “genre” dramas like “Voice” and “the Guest,” and written by Chun Sung Il, who has worked on popular films such as “The Pirates” and “My Girlfriend Is An Agent.” Ahead of the drama’s premiere on February 1, the production staff shared reasons why viewers should tune in for the new show.

Director Kim Hong Sun said, “It’s a cool action drama that also has fun, fantastical elements as Ji Oh’s secret unfolds.” Screenwriter Chun Sung Il said, “I tried not to take the ‘obvious route’ and wanted to avoid an ending that people would be able to predict.”

The drama is based on the concept of genetic modification and human evolution. “L.U.C.A.,” the title, comes from the acronym “Last Universal Common Ancestor,” the organism from which all life descended. Chun Sung Il said, “I started with the question, ‘Humans are always trying to change everything except themselves, so why would they stop at other humans?’ I then moved on to thinking about a story about the end of loneliness. Ji Oh is a unique person with special abilities that no one else has. I thought that being the ‘only one of your kind’ would be very lonely.”

The writer added that he had named Gu Reum (cloud in Korean) because she is the only one who can complete his lonely world. “When we’re told to draw the sky, we usually add clouds,” he said. “Skies need clouds to be complete. Gu Reum is the only one who accepts Ji Oh as he is, and she is necessary to him to complete his world.”

On top of the unique worldbuilding is the huge spectacle of the drama’s action scenes. Cinematographer Choi Young Hwan, who worked on films like “Veteran,” “The Berlin File,” and “The Thieves,” said, “Just as I wanted to try something new, I came across this script. It was the most exciting script I’d read in a while. My focus was on keeping my individual style that I’d developed through films.” Kim Hong Sun added, “We shot in a way that was more like film direction [than TV direction]. If you watch the drama, you will be able to feel Choi Young Hwan’s style.”
