Taecyeon, Ha Seok Jin, and Jung Eun Ji have found themselves in a trial of death in tvN’s upcoming drama!
“Blind” is a mystery thriller that depicts the story of people who have unfairly become victims because they are ordinary and perpetrators who have closed their eyes to the uncomfortable truths. The story centers around detectives, judges, law school students, and jurors.
2PM’s Taecyeon plays Ryu Sung Joon, a violent crimes detective who is hell bent on catching criminals. Ha Seok Jin takes on the role of Ryu Sung Joon’s older brother Ryu Sung Hoon who is also a perfectionist judge. Apink’s Jung Eun Ji stars as the social worker Jo Eun Ki who is one of the jurors for a murder trial.
Ahead of the drama’s premiere, “Blind” has unveiled an in-depth highlight teaser that eerily starts with the struggling victim’s voice. Ryu Sung Joon then explains the unique signature characteristic of the killings known as the “Joker’s Murder Case.” To ensure more strict judgement for the upcoming trial, jurors are chosen – but their photos are later shown to be meticulously studied by an unknown figure, hinting at the danger these participants are in.
Once the “Joker’s murder case” trial starts, suspect Jung Man Choon (Jun Jin Woo) throws the court room into chaos and Ryu Sung Joon notes that something’s off about the case. The suspect also manages to steal part of the jurors’ address book before he eerily warns, “The reason you guys will die is because of what you did today.”
Now that the trial is over, the real case begins as the investigators fall further and further from the truth. Eventually, brothers Ryu Sung Joon and Ryu Sung Hoon start to suspect one another. Ryu Sung Hoon has always hid his anxiety about the way his younger brother suppresses violent criminals, so as he starts to remember chaotic old memories, he asks Ryu Sung Joon, “Did you do it? Isn’t there a different reason why you became a police officer?”
Jo Eun Ki sounds confused as she asks Ryu Sung Hoon if he does not trust his own brother while Ryu Sung Joon comments, “Sometimes, I have scary dreams, but I don’t know whether they’re dreams or memories.”
When Ryu Sung Joon is caught at a crime scene covered in blood, Ryu Sung Hoon’s suspicions appear to be confirmed, and more and more evidence comes out against Ryu Sung Joon, sending the “Joker’s murder case” into a completely new direction.
While Ryu Sung Joon fights his terrifying past memories as well as the accusations against him, Jo Eun Ki pretends to assist him as she says, “I’m going to try and believe you.” Instead, she teams up with Ryu Sung Hoon to corner him but Ryu Sung Joon shares his desperation to find the killer. Unaffected, Ryu Sung Hoon states his own determination and adds, “Even if the real culprit could be you.”
Even with so much evidence and opinion against Ryu Sung Joon, he continues to try his best to unveil the truth. Along with Ryu Sung Hoon and Jo Eun Ki, the three characters dive into this case to find the real culprit who’s hiding within the hidden truth.
As they start to combine forces, Ryu Sung Joon confidently announces, “They said [the culprit] is in court. The culprit is in there.” Ryu Sung Hoon adds, “The culprit is playing a game right now.” The closer they get to the truth, the more danger these characters will find themselves in.
