“Island” is a drama based on the webtoon of the same name by writers Yoon In Wan and Yang Kyungil, depicting the journey of characters who are destined to fight against evil trying to destroy the world. It will reinterpret the legends and tales of the beautiful Jeju Island in a modern way.
The trailer begins with a scene where Ban, played by Kim Nam Gil, who appears beyond time and space, snatches the Geumgangjeo flying toward him. The peaceful appearance of Tamra in the distant past has also aroused interest in the viewers as Geum Baek Ju (Go Doo Shim) narrates, “The demons of the world are caught in Tamra and blocked,” and the desperate fight against the evil that occupied Tamra unfolds.
Yo Han (Cha Eun Woo), an exorcist who came to Jeju believing it was God’s calling, stimulates curiosity by implying that the only saviour, who would prevent the destruction, revealed in the prophecy has appeared. At that moment, Won Mi Ho, played by Lee Da Hee, who arrives at Jeju, senses a strange energy and is soon chased by the spirits, giving a breathtaking thrill.
Ban appears and immediately overpowers Jeong Yeom Gwi and stands by her. Yo Han also confronts the demon with determined eyes, saying that it is his choice to protect Won Mi Ho. Surrounded by Jeong Yeom Gwi, Won Mi Ho begins to question the existence of evil trying to harm her.
Ban, who had been hanging around Won Mi Ho, foretells an unusual relationship between the two by asking a meaningful question, “You really don’t remember anything?”
Won Mi Ho is wearing white clothes and has a bright smile. Their past half creates a completely opposite atmosphere increasing the curiosity about where the relationship between the two began.
Then, the grey-haired Gung Tan, played by Sung Joon shows a strong presence by saying, “It’s been a while, my brother,” as if he had been waiting for this day. At the same time, Ban attacks the Gung Tan without any hesitation, suggesting that their cruel fate has begun again.
The main trailer, which reached its climax, presented extreme suspense as the intertwined stories of Ban, Won Mi Ho, Yo an, and Gung Tan quickly intertwined. Attention is on what kind of fate those who are trapped in a fate that cannot be escaped, will face, like Ban’s monologue, “It is a destiny that has been determined since birth and it is an unbroken previous life’s karma.
‘Island’ will be released on TVing and Amazon Prime Video on December 30th.
