SBS has released the first trailer for revenge-thriller K-drama Payback, starring Parasite’s Lee Sun-kyun and Flower of Evil’s Moon Chae-won.
The new visual, released yesterday (December 15), opens with Eun Yong (played by Lee) being escorted by policemen with his hands tied. The scene later cuts to clips of Eun Yong fighting his way through a construction site and riding a horse through a vast green field.
The visual also introduces army major Joon Kyung (played by Moon), who is seen brooding as the rain pours around her. “Do you think you can save my mother? You don’t know how I lost her!” Joon screams at an unseen figure, as translated by Soompi.
The visual ends with text reading “An exhilarating revenge battle against unjust power begins!”
Payback follows Eun Yong, a hedge fund manager who fights against a money cartel that’s in collusion with the law. The series is helmed by Lee Won-tae, who previously worked on the 2019 crime film The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil. The script is penned by Kim Won-seok, best known for his work on hit military-romance drama Descendants of the Sun.
Starring alongside Lee and Moon are Kang Yoo-seok (Light on Me) as Jang Tae Cheon, Eun Yong’s nephew and a youth prosecutor; and Park Hoon (Big Mouth) as Hwang Gi Seok, the chief prosecutor for a special department.
Payback is set to air on SBS from January 6.
