TVING original drama “The King of Pigs” has shared a thrilling sneak peek!
“The King of Pigs” is a thriller that follows the people who recall their experiences as victims of violence due to the mysterious serial killings that begin when they receive a message from a friend from 20 years ago. Through these characters with tragic fates, the drama touches on the origin of school violence and the violence that pervades modern society.
The drama is based on director Yeon Sang Ho’s animated film of the same name that has already been acknowledged for its cinematic quality at various film festivals.
Kim Dong Wook will play the role of Hwang Kyung Min who lives with the trauma of the school violence he experienced 20 years ago. Kim Sung Kyu will take on the role of detective Jung Jong Suk who traces the mysterious message sent by the friend from 20 years ago. Chae Jung Ahn will play the charismatic detective Kang Jin Ah, a tenacious woman of principle who will stop at nothing to solve a case.
The new teaser beings with the shrill sound of sirens. Jung Jong Suk and Kang Jin Ah hastily appear at the scene of a terrible murder. Their terrified expressions give a small hint about the kind of horrific incident they witnessed before their eyes.
Hwang Kyung Min’s calm but eerie voice greets, “Jong Suk, it’s been a long time. It’s Hwang Kyung Min. How have you been?” The sight of him with bright red blood on his face creates a chilling vibe, and his cold expression foreshadows what kind of gruesome deed he is up to. Hwang Kyung Min’s voiceover continues, “Do you remember that day? You should join me.” The clip ends with a glimpse of a frightening pig mask that sends shivers up one’s spine.
“The King of Pigs” will be released on March 18 via TVING. Check out the teaser above!
