Dramatic Character Introductions in First Trailers for Korean Drama “Hwayugi”

Hwayugi Korean Drama - Lee Seung Gi

Here we go! We have our first teasers out for upcoming Hong sisters drama Hwayugi (also known as A Korean Odyssey) starring Lee Seung Gi (You’re All Surrounded), Oh Yeon Seo (My Sassy Girl), and Cha Seung Won (Hawjung). They come in the form of brief character trailers for each of them.

All three are set up the same with the beginning being a sky view in between buildings followed by a flaming hand coming toward the camera. Then we get a quick shot of each star with Lee Seung Gi delivering an arrogant smirk, Oh Yeon Seo looking confident, and Cha Seung Won with a serious look.

They are a pretty intense way to introduce us to the drama! I’m certainly excited to be seeing our first glimpses of it and look forward to more! Despite these being quite dramatic, I would expect some lighter and fun trailers to follow soon. I guess we will see!

Hwayugi is a romantic comedy horror loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West about the journey of a monk and four others to atone for their sins. The drama moves the story to the modern day where the trouble making Monkey King (Lee Seung Gi) is exiled to the human world without his powers because of his corruption. He seeks to restore them with the help of a wealthy realtor (Oh Yeon Seo) descended from monks who can unseal them. The two then work to battle evil spirits together.

Hwayugi is scheduled to premiere December 23 on tvN.

    This certainly is a very dramatic way to introduce characters lol. But it is quite fun and pretty original if I’m being honest. Looking forward to seeing a full trailer for this one though 😀
