Park Hae Soo, Claudia Kim, And Lee Hee Joon’s Upcoming Mystery Drama Confirms Premiere Date

Sep 27, 2021
by S. Nam
 

OCN’s upcoming Saturday-Sunday drama “Chimera” (literal title) is gearing up to premiere this October!

In “Chimera,” which was previously known under the working title “Chemistry,” a present-day case is found to be related to an explosion and series of murders in 1984 known as the Chimera Incident. The story follows the main characters as they track down the criminal and uncover the secrets between the two cases. “Chimera” is helmed by director Kim Do Hoon, who previously led “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” with a script by Lee Jin Mae, who has written “Ex-Girlfriend Club.” Recently, the drama announced that it will be premiering on October 30.

The Chimera is a fire-breathing hybrid creature from Greek mythology with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and a tail that is a snake. Just the title itself hints at the overwhelming scale of the accidental explosion that took place in the story, giving a taste of the suspenseful nature of the drama.

Park Hae Soo, who showcased his impressive acting on Netflix’s “Squid Game” and tvN’s “Prison Playbook,” will once again exhibit his powerful action skills as he takes on the role of violent crimes detective Cha Jae Hyun who is a perfectionist when it comes to investigations.

Claudia Kim, who received love from all over the globe for her roles in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” will be playing the profiler Yoo Jin, who once worked for the FBI after being adopted by an American family at a young age. She’s expected to captivate viewers with her immersive acting and powerful presence.

Lee Hee Joon, who took on a variety of roles through the dramas “Mouse” and “Mistress” as well as the film “The Man Standing Next,” will be transforming into doctor Lee Joong Yeob who was adopted by a British family at a young age but comes back to Korea after becoming a doctor – only to get caught up in mysterious incidents.

A source from OCN stated, “Since we’re returning with a classic mystery thriller that OCN viewers prefer, we’ll showcase exquisite directing and refreshing characters that maximize immersion, so please look forward to it a lot. In addition to ‘Chimera,’ which will premiere on October 30, there’s a diverse lineup prepared including ‘Superior Day’ (literal title), which is scheduled to premiere in the first half of next year, so viewers can look forward to that.”

“Chimera” is slated to premiere October 30 at 10:30 p.m. KST.

I went to the filming site of the drama "Chimera". It was a set located in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do. It was support for the actors and staff who are working hard in the sweltering heat at actor "Lee Hee-jun"'s agency. We have served you well by ordering coffee & drinks and New York hot dogs. Filming was stopped for a while, but you did well until the last filming, Yegrina will also cheer for the ratings to be great. "Chimera" team~!!! Fighting.

Watch: New OCN Drama “Chimaira” Previews Explosive Action And Terrifying Suspense In New Teaser

dummy.jpeg?s=900x600&e=t

Sep 30, 2021
by C. Hong
 

OCN’s new drama “Chimaira” has released its first teaser!

“Chimaira” is a mystery drama about a violent crimes detective named Jae Hwan (Park Hae Soo), a criminal profiler named Yoo Jin (Claudia Kim), and a surgeon named Joong Yeob (Lee Hee Joon) who come together for their own reasons to uncover the truth behind “Chimaira,” the serial killing case that recently restarted after 35 years.

Key to the serial killings in the past and present are explosions, which feature heavily in the new teaser. Park Hae Soo observes a formal funeral before someone lights a car on fire, as someone in the background says, “An individual with not just one DNA, but two,” explaining the drama’s title and the serial killer’s nickname of “chimaera,” which in Greek mythology is a creature that combines multiple animals into one.

The teaser continues with the dire warning, “The monster has awakened,” as Park Hae Soo takes a photo of a chimaera drawn on the wall and Claudia Kim reels from shock on the pavement. As more explosions ensue, the characters start to panic and demand to know who the “chimaera” is. There are several shots of a mysterious figure in a hat and a mask that haunts the other characters, possibly the titular “chimaera.”

 

 

 

“Chimaira” premieres on October 30 and will be available on Viki.

Flames and explosions galore in OCN’s latest mystery-thriller Chimera

by tineybeanie

screenshottingchimera10.jpg

 

The first teaser for Chimera was just released, featuring Park Hae-soo (Squid Game), Soo-hyun (Claudia Kim) (Monster), and Lee Hee-joon (Mouse). The thriller-mystery drama is about serial killings that begin again after a 35-year hiatus.

 

Park Hae-soo, Soo-hyun, and Lee Hee-joon play, respectively, a violent crimes police detective, a criminal behavioral profiler, and a surgeon. The three come together to pursue the truth behind the killings. The teaser opens with Park Hae-soo in formal police attire paying his respects to a deceased colleague. The voiceover explains a chimera: “A phenomenon where one individual contains two different DNA codes.” A car explodes in an act of arson, and onscreen copy reads: “The monster has awoken!”

 

Soo-hyun examines clues on the ground, while in another cut, a man raises a glass to a mythological chimera spray-painted on a wall. We see a shadowy figure in a bucket hat, and then Kang Shin-il (Police University) screams into his phone: “Who are you?!” Woo Hyun (Racket Boys) laughs sinisterly in his police uniform, right before we cut to another car explosion. Onscreen copy asks: “Who is the chimera?”

Someone reveals a painting with a tortured pope on a throne. Next, the shadowy figure in the bucket hat slowly lowers his mask, as someone in a car claims that he’s the real chimera. The next scene shows a fiery gang fight, as Lee Hee-joon looks at Park Hae-soo. Lee Hee-joon’s voiceover says, “You don’t believe me anyway,” and he yells at someone to shoot. Soo-hyun is strangled by an unknown person, another car explodes, and Lee Hee-joon looks distraught. The teaser ends with a man being shocked by a page of the Bible (opened to 2 Peter 3:10) being set aflame.

Directed by Kim Do-hoon (The Moon That Embraces the Sun), OCN’s Saturday-Sunday drama Chimera will begin airing on October 30.

Chimera's main trailer released... Park Hae-soo, Soo-hyeon, Lee Hee-jun 'Conflict Explosion'

 

202110061151100295_l.jpg

 

OCN's new Saturday and Sunday drama 'Chimaira' released the main trailer on the OCN official website and official SNS on the October 6th.

 

In the released trailer, the purpose of the characters - the culprit, the case, and the truth - of the serial explosion and murder case is more clearly shown, and the doubts and conflicts of those who collide sharply make you sweat.

 

'Chimera' tells the truth of a serial explosion and murder case that started again after 35 years for a different purpose, called 'Chimera', by Jae-hwan (Park Hae-soo), profiler Yoo-jin (Soo-hyeon), and surgeon Joong-yeop (Lee Hee-joon) for a different purpose. It is a thriller that chases after a chain of explosions.

 

Jung-yeop, who asks a meaningful question to Jae-hwan who came to visit him, “What kind of detective are you?”

Then, Eugene rushes to somewhere and a mysterious person walks down a rainy alley wearing a raincoat, raising curiosity with unpredictable developments.
