Actors Kim Nam Gil, Lee Da Hee, Cha Eun Woo, and Sung Joon raised expectations by predicting an unprecedented acting transformation through the previously released first teaser notice and character poster. The 2nd teaser preview video released on the day shows Ban (Kim Nam Gil), Mi Ho (Lee Da Hee), Yohan (Cha Eun Woo), and Gungtan (Sung Joon) who fight against evil.
The video draws attention with music full of tension and Kim Nam Gil’s heavy narration, “The evil that has been parasitic on this land since the beginning, it is everywhere and you don’t know where it will appear,” and the visual beauty of the previous scale. Against the background of Jeju Island, which is engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos, ‘Ban’ and ‘Yohan’ appear with intense charisma as they stand against the fanciful demon. Then, the image of Lee Da Hee, desperately running away from the appearance of a monster he has never seen before, heightens the sense of crisis.
Then, along with a copy that reads, “Special beings who fight evil, they finally started moving,” Yohan who slays the monsters with a staff emitting holy power, Miho who snipers with a gun, and Ban who wields a sword without hesitation are tense for a moment with intense action. On the other hand, along with the urgent moment that rushes without rest, Miho asks, “Why are chastity chasing after me?” amplifies curiosity. ‘Island’ will be released for the first time on TVING on December 30th. It will also enter the global market through Amazon Prime Video.
