TVING’s “The King of Pigs” has shared a thrilling new preview of its premiere episode!
“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 An will play the charismatic detective Kang Jin Ah, a tenacious woman of principle who will stop at nothing to solve a case.
The teaser begins with Jung Jong Suk and Kang Jin Ah taking on a new murder case. She catches him off guard when she points out that the suspect went to the same middle school as him. The video goes on to show Hwang Kyung Min as a young boy who is bullied viciously by his peers. Kang Jin Ah’s voiceover says, “Jung Jong Suk transferred to another school, and Hwang Kyung Min dropped out.”
Hwang Kyung Min seems to be going after those who bullied him years ago. He pulls out a knife and glances at a photo from his school days. He looks up to see one of his bullies who smiles cluelessly and says, “We had a lot of fun memories back then.” As if he’s provoked by those words, Hwang Kyung Min states, “You look happy.”
Hwang Kyung Min’s expression darkens as he bursts with anger, and he asks, “You don’t remember Hwang Kyung Min, your plaything?” Tension escalates as things become unpredictable about who Hwang Kyung Min will target next.
“The King of Pigs” will premiere on March 18. Watch the new teaser below!
