Watch: Han Hyo Joo And Joo Ji Hoon Form Intriguing Alliance Amidst Rising Tension In New “Blood Free” Teaser

Watch: Han Hyo Joo And Joo Ji Hoon Form Intriguing Alliance Amidst Rising Tension In New “Blood Free” Teaser

Han Hyo Joo and Joo Ji Hoon’s highly anticipated series “Blood Free” has dropped its main teaser!

 

“Blood Free” is a suspense thriller about Yoon Ja Yoo (Han Hyo Joo), the CEO of the genetic engineering enterprise BF that opens a new era of artificially cultured meat in 2025, and Woo Chae Woon (Joo Ji Hoon), a retired officer-turned-guard who deliberately approaches her, as they get swept up in a series of incidents and a mysterious death.

 

The teaser kicks off by unveiling that Yoon Ja Yoo has become a global target for murder due to her intervention in primary industries as the CEO of a new biotech company BF that has begun to dominate the meat market. In the ensuing scene, Woo Chae Woon receives an order, “BF will appoint a bodyguard. Go and become her right-hand man.”

 

As the teaser progresses, BF encounters a series of crises, including rumors that their cultured meat is full of bacteria and a large-scale ransomware hacking attack.

Yoon Ja Yoo’s subsequent statement, “[The culprit] could be someone within our company,” intensifies the intrigue. Her later contemplation, “Is he a resource I should utilize or someone I should stay away from…” highlights her lingering suspicion of Woo Chae Woon despite relying on him for crucial information, building anticipation for their relationship dynamics and its evolution.

 

Watch the full teaser below!

 

 

“Blood Free” premieres on April 10.

Joo Ji-hoon questions Han Hyo-joo’s Blood Free world

by tccolb

 

A new teaser has been packaged out for Disney+’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Blood Free, revealing a world where our heroine Han Hyo-joo (Moving) is both lauded and scorned as a forerunner in the synthetic meat market.

Opening on Yoon Ja-yoo’s (Han Hyo-joo) presentation, our CEO of biotech company BF (a.k.a. Blood Free) is proud to announce their achievements in making foods that drip blood a relic of the past. Despite being accosted by protesters, the astute Ja-yoo remains calm, explaining that she anticipated the backlash when she first started her research and understands that the technology disrupted primary industries.

 

We then meet our saluting hero Joo Ji-hoon (Jirisan), who is ordered by a powerful Jeon Gook-hwan (The First Responders) to infiltrate BF by becoming a bodyguard and right-hand man. Woo Chae-woon (Joo Ji-hoon) asks, “Does your next target have to be BF,” and the teaser later explains that there’s something inside the company that Chae-woon needs to find.

As an ex-marine, Woo Chae-woon is a shoe-in for the job. But even the battle-experienced Chae-woon is shocked when a body drops on Ja-yoo’s car in the middle of busy traffic. While BF’s planning director Park Ji-yeon (A Model Family) checks on Ja-yoo, the team assesses that it’s an opportune time to hire a special bodyguard.

Once officially on the clock, Chae-woon warns Ja-yoo to keep away from windows with clear views and we learn that Ja-yoo has been receiving death threats from many invested parties. At this point, though, it’s war on all fronts as BF is hit with a media scandal purporting that their cultured meat is a bacteria cesspool.

Research team lead Jeon Suk-ho’s (Moving) panic continues when the company’s computer system is hacked by a group claiming to be Citizen X. Chae-woon deduces that it’s a copycat and not the real deal. But because BF’s co-founder Lee Moo-saeng (Hide) can never play a plain old good guy, a suspicious Ja-yoo realizes that, “It could be someone in our company.”

Incidentally, Prime Minister Lee Hee-joon (A Killer Paradox) is another who often plays evil (very well). But though he taunts our heroine about the bacteria rumors, Ja-yoo refuses to kowtow to his threats. As the sequence continues, we read in the text screens that, “The food chain that subordinated humankind is broken. Will the humans that dream of a perfect life dominate or will they be dominated?”

We’re then left with more questions as the trailer comes to a close, with Ja-yoo wondering if she can trust Chae-woon or if it’s wiser to keep a distance. All the while, our hero worries about the predator person standing behind all these events and we end on Chae-woon’s unfinished train of thought: “If taking humans out of the food chain was the first goal, the second is…”

Directed by PD Park Chul-hwan (Grid) with scripts by Lee Soo-yeon (Grid, Forest of Secrets), Disney+’s Blood Free is slated to premiere on April 10.

On April 8, a press conference was held for Disney+'s Blood Free, which was attended by Ju Ji HoonHan Hyo JooLee Hee JoonLee Moo Saeng, and director Park Cheol Hwan.

Blood Free is set in an era where meat is genetically engineered. BF Group is the company leading the genetically engineered meat market. 

BF's CEO, Yoon Ja Yoo (Han Hyo Joo), and Woo Chae Woon (Ju Ji Hoon), a former soldier working as a bodyguard, get entangled in mysterious incidents and pursue the truth behind them.

Han Hyo Joo, who plays the role of BF Group's CEO Yoon Ja Yoo, talked about the reason behind choosing the drama, saying, "When I first read the script, I thought it was a smart theme and a drama perfect for a time like now. So I read the script for parts 1 and 2 in one go. I was so happy that day that I wrote in my diary. It was a script that made my heart race, and made me excited, so much so that I could say, 'A script as good as this has finally found its way to me.'"

She also shared behind-the-scenes stories of the presentation scene that opens the K-drama. Han Hyo Joo said, "Since it the scene opening the door to the drama, I thought I had to do well, so I watched many TED talks and looked for lectures that could be used as references and practiced a lot. I usually don’t practice well because I like to act with the feeling of going live [acting impromptu on set], but I practiced a lot and memorized all the lines for this scene. Although I could have read from the teleprompter and didn't need to memorize, I wanted to implement it perfectly, so I went to the set after memorizing everything."

Talking about her character, Yoon Ja Yoo, Han Hyo Joo commented, "She is a character who doesn't express emotions to the point where it was unclear whether she is evil or good. ... I even changed my voice tone and things like that, and [while speaking dialogues] I spoke with less volume than I usually do."

Ju Ji Hoon also shared his experiences. During the press conference, it was revealed that the Kingdom actor successfully performed a 17 vs 1 action scene.

The actor said, "Since it [the drama] is set in the near future, there were some difficult aspects. I thought that to reach the audience [better], it's better to be realistic rather than giving a futuristic feel." He continued, "Instead of flashy action scenes with a lot of effects, we focused on creating actions that felt realistic."

The host, Park Kyung Rim, asked "Don't you have gout?" To this, Ju Ji Hoon chuckled and said, "My uric acid level is a bit high," and expressed, "It's a shame I couldn't show everything [various aspects of my skills], but I had fun filming. I'm satisfied."

Premiere Watch: Blood Free

by missvictrix

 

IE003285128_STD.jpg

 

Time slot: Wednesdays (2x week)
Broadcaster: Disney+
Genre: Sci-fi, thriller, drama
Episode count: 10

Reasons to watch: Famed writer Lee Soo-yeon’s latest screenplay is here! Following up Forest of Secrets, and most recently Grid, Blood Free is all about the CEO of a synthetic meat company, and what happens (in the rhetorical sense) when the food chain is disturbed. Starring two of my personal favorites — Han Hyo-joo and Joo Ji-hoon — this thriller should not only keep us on the edge of our seats but also ask some important questions. (Also, can we have a bit of romance please?)

 

TL;DR: Han Hyo-joo is a CEO who’s made synthetic meat, and Joo Ji-hoon is her conflicted bodyguard

Blood Free: Episodes 1-2

by solstices

 

In a future where synthetic meat has taken over the global market, a sudden onslaught of consecutive crises threatens the company at the center of it all. Behind our heroine’s groundbreaking technology lies innumerable secrets, and we’re only beginning to scratch the surface.

 
EPISODES 1-2

 

Once again, writer Lee Soo-yeon isn’t pulling any punches with her social commentary, and I am all in for it. Right off the bat, the premiere episode opens with viscerally graphic AR projections of animals being hunted, trussed up, and brutally butchered for their meat. It’s shock advertising for a product presentation, and chairwoman YOON JA-YOO (Han Hyo-joo) steps out to laud the achievements of her biotech company BF — which stands for “Blood Free.”

Not only have they successfully cultivated lab-grown synthetic meat and fur, but they also — quite literally — have bigger fish to fry. Serving up cultured seafood to the guests in attendance, Ja-yoo proclaims that BF’s operations will expand to grain and crops in a mere six month’s time.

Amidst the audience, WOO CHAE-WOON (Joo Ji-hoon) listens attentively to Ja-yoo’s speech, only for the popping of champagne bottles to briefly spur a traumatic flashback. In Chae-woon’s memory, an explosion goes off, and he helps Ja-yoo to her feet amidst the rubble and the bloodied bodies of his fellow soldiers.

 

After the event, Ja-yoo leaves through a crowd of aggrieved protestors and fervent supporters. As her car comes to a halt in a traffic jam, Ja-yoo gazes wistfully at a family enjoying the Christmas cheer. Then a man falls off an overpass and crashes onto her car. Chae-woon, who’d also been leaving the venue, rushes to Ja-yoo’s aid alongside the BF personnel — and amidst the crowd, a man with a ragged scar on his cheek watches them ominously.

Thankfully, Ja-yoo emerges from the incident mostly unscathed save for a neck brace. Chae-woon’s timely arrival and efficient response has piqued her curiosity — especially since he rings a bell with her closest aide, BF’s general manager JUNG HAE-DEUN (Park Ji-yeon), though she can’t quite place where she’s seen him before.

As it turns out, Chae-woon’s convenient proximity to Ja-yoo is far from a coincidence. The former president LEE MOON-KYU (Jeon Guk-hwan) had sent him a VIP invitation, and their ties can be traced back to that traumatic explosion. Back in the post-war landscape of January 2024, Moon-kyu had spontaneously decided to pay a visit to dispatched troops, alongside several businessmen and congressmen.

Within seven hours since Moon-kyu decided on the visit, and a mere half hour since their plane landed, the explosions had gone off. Both the ministers had died, leaving the four remaining survivors as suspects — and Ja-yoo had been part of his entourage.

 

Moon-kyu is deeply suspicious of Ja-yoo, who’d requested him to abolish the law requiring cultured meat to be labeled as genetically-modified food. She’d gotten her wish — after Moon-kyu had lost his legs in the explosion and stepped down from office, that is. Needless to say, Moon-kyu has a vendetta against Ja-yoo, and unbeknownst to Chae-woon, he seems to be covertly plotting with the current prime minister SEONU JAE (Lee Hee-joon).

Blood Free: Episodes 3-4

by solstices

 

Figuring out the identity of the ransomware mastermind, our heroine launches an international pursuit against the betrayer. In the process, her dark past is brought to the surface, revealing an ulterior motive that runs far deeper than any of the rumors about her company’s true nature.

 
EPISODES 3-4

 

In a bid to narrow down the culprit, Ja-yoo has Hui illegally access the flight ticket purchases, money transfers, and location data of all BF employees. It’s chilling how easily she’s able to access such sensitive information, simply by virtue of being their boss with an advanced AI system. It turns out Shin-gu has a scheduled flight to visit his family, and he’d been the only employee in Sae-ip’s vicinity, right up till ten minutes prior to her crash.

Rewinding to the previous day, we see Shin-gu exclaiming with joy upon learning of Ja-yoo’s ransom payment. He’s counted his chickens before they’ve hatched, though, because Sae-ip overhears him through the door, having come by to deliver his belongings. Terrified that his perfect crime will go up in smoke, Shin-gu orchestrates Sae-ip’s accident to seal her lips.

While in the car with Hui, Ja-yoo receives a request from Jae to meet up, only for him to leave the house right as she arrives. There’s been a large-scale police armory raid, necessitating his presence. As Ja-yoo leaves, road construction forces her car to make a detour — right into an ambush. A shootout in the woods ensues, and though Chae-woon and newbie Ho-seung are equipped with firearms that Hae-deun procured, they’re still outnumbered.

As they take cover, the gunshots trigger Ja-yoo’s traumatic flashbacks of the bombing, and her convulsing uncontrollably in a hospital bed. “Isn’t this better? You might as well die quickly with a single shot, then succumb to the hole in your head,” Ja-yoo’s inner voice taunts, temptingly.

Clocking her distress, Chae-woon reassures her that he’ll protect her, right by her side. Then just as a grenade lands beside them, Chae-woon stands up, taking a shot to the chest, and hurls the grenade right back at their attackers.

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching (April 20, 2024)

by DB Staff

So, what are we all watching this week?

 

What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…

 

javabeans

Blood Free: I’m intrigued by the everybody-is-a-suspect setup and the slight sci-fi bent, though so far it’s a bit of a dry and detached watch for me. The plot reminds me of Okja, but tonally it’s completely on the other end of the seriousness spectrum and while I expect this to be engaging as a cerebral form of entertainment, I find myself wishing there were more personality or style. Or something to grasp onto — it’s a bit cold for my taste. A matter of personal preference, I’m sure. I interpret Han Hyo-joo’s portrayal as intentionally off-putting, but even if it’s the point her aloof and calculating nature keeps me at arm’s length and I prefer to care about my characters. Will keep watching, but hoping the intrigue ramps up soon.
