‘Luca: The Beginning’ Kim Rae-won and Lee Da-hee face the fate that cannot escape.
‘Luca: The Beginning’ (screenplay Cheon Sung-il, director Kim Hong-seon), opening the door to tvN’s Monday and Tuesday drama in 2021, set a day for each other on the 20th, but Geo (played by Kim Rae-won) and Goo-reum (played by Lee Da-hee), who are led by an irresistible fate. Lee Da-hee’s play and the atmosphere of the play were captured. It raises the curiosity of Geo and the fierce fate of the cloud, which will be his only haven, who was born strong and thrown lonely.
‘Luca: The Beginning’ is a spectacle chase action play against a huge conspiracy with Geo’s only homicide detective cloud who remembers him because of his special ability. ‘Voice 1’and ‘The Guest’ are the unrivaled worlds of directing. Director Kim Hong-seon and writer Cheon Sung-il, who has been loved through dramas and movies such as ‘The Slave Hunters’ and ‘Pirates’, open a new horizon of genre with the theme of unity and human evolution. It is also interesting to note that it is the first drama chosen by cinematographer Choi Young-hwan, who is said to be in the Korean film world, such as ‘Veteran’, ‘Berlin’, and ‘The Thieves’. In addition, the martial arts director Jang Jae-wook of the movie ‘The Great Battle’ is added to herald the birth of a pursuit action with a different scale.
Meanwhile, the unveiled atmosphere of the reversal of Geo and Goo-reum amplifies curiosity about the relationship between those who will face a huge conspiracy in the whirlwind of fate. The appearance of the two men, showing fierce hostility toward each other, adds tension. ‘Geo’, a man who has been chased while hiding his ability to change the world, the only woman ‘Goo-reum’ alive in his memory, confronts by setting a day in an endless crisis.
However, the two start to get entangled with an irresistible fate. In the eyes of each other, complex and indescribable emotions pass. Goo-reum is the only one who understands the loneliness of Geo, who is thrown into the world and struggling. Geo is full of gruesomeness as he leans on his shoulder as if trying to rest his desperate fate. Geo, who is chased by the world without knowing who he is, and Goo-reum that sees the truth, stimulate curiosity about what a huge plot they will fight against.
The transformation of Kim Rae-won and Lee Da-hee, who foretold the birth of the ‘Earth (Geo + Goo-reum)’ couple, who will devour the universe with an intense aura that will not exist anywhere in the world, is another point of watching ‘Luca: The Beginning’. Kim Rae-won, who is divided as Geo chasing with unknown people, explodes his intense action instincts and performance. Lee Da-hee meets Geo and announces the birth of a new action heroine through Goo-reum that shakes her life. Kim Rae-won said, “Even though Goo-reum was not easy due to the nature of the genre, actor Lee Da-hee enthusiastically digested it well. It was a good partner.” Lee Da-hee also said of Kim Rae-won, “The delicate and lively performance was great. I looked at the acting and referenced it a lot.” The synergy of the two actors, who perfectly solved the powerful action and the inner emotional line, adds to the expectation for a spectacle pursuit action that goes beyond the limits.
Meanwhile, tvN’s new Monday and Tuesday drama ‘Luca: The Beginning’ will be aired for the first time on Monday, February 1 at 9 pm.
