부활 (Boo-hwal)

Directed by Jeon Chang-geun (전창근), Park Chan-hong (박찬홍)

Screenplay by


KBS | Airing dates :

24 episodes
The main character of the series is portrayed by Um Tae-ung, who acts in double role. He plays twins -- Seo Ha-eun, a detective, and Yoo Shin-hyuk, the scion of a family-owned conglomerate -- who were separated due to a childhood mishap. Ha-eun first learns that he has a twin brother while investigating his father's mysterious death. The two finally chance across each other, but their father's murderers mistake Shin-hyuk for Ha-eun and kill him. Afterwards, Ha-eun disguises himself as Shin-hyuk to avenge his brother.


Eom Tae-woong
Eom Tae-woong portrays two characters. The first character, Seo Ha-eun, is a hot-tempered detective who lost his parents in an accident as a child and was raised by someone else. This upbeat and outgoing guy seems to be ideal in everything, but when he is with his girlfriend, Eun-ha, the love of his life, he acts like a child. The second character, Yoo Shin-hyuk, ends up being a son of a family-controlled conglomerate after his mother's remarriage. He has a cold-headed personality and keeps his heart closed from the outside world to overcome his inferiority complex of being a stepson. He feels guilty about losing his twin brother, and always looks strong on the outside, whereas on the inside he is the weakest person on earth.

So I-hyeon : Lee Kang-joo
This upfront and free-spirited woman is open-minded and unbiased. She works as an intern journalist, and though she has a warm heart, she often looks arrogant in the eyes of others for her self-assertive personality and the fact that she is the daughter of a politician.

Ko Joo-won : Chung Jin-woo
This authoritative, cold-hearted and meticulous man is the vice president of the J&C Group. He tries to look gentle and well-mannered on the outside, but deep inside he is possessed by arrogance and self-confidence.

Han Ji-min : Seo Eun-ha
This smart, upbeat and frank woman is in love with her job. As one who had difficult childhood, she knows how to commiserate with the underprivileged.

  • What about 'daddy' Eom Tae-woong?

    2014/12/11, Source,
    'Eom Force' has been a long time nickname of his. Eom Tae-woong usually plays a strong and charismatic male character in movies such as "Revenge", "Wolf", "Devil" and dramas "The Equator Man" and "Sword and Flower". His recent movie was no different. He played the typical 'tough guy' and stood out by having a unique personality in most movies, which is why he has an even fan base from both women and men. However, his image has started to change ever since he got married. He's become friendlier and nicer,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame] "The Chaser"

    In the Spotlight this Week: "The Chaser" by Na Hong-jin In 2005, self-confessed cannibal and serial killer Yoo Young-chul was sentenced to death for twenty counts of murder by the Seoul Central District Court. His victims included mostly prostitutes and the wealthy, stating, in front of the cameras, that: "Women shouldn't be sluts, and the rich should know what they've done". Three years after his sentences was carried out, Na Hong-jin made his directing debut with the intense and disturbing "The Chaser", a psychological thriller that drew inspiration from Yoo's grizzly and blood-soaked story and remains one of the most gripping and spell-binding entries into the genre. Over five million local filmgoers gorged themselves on Na's terrifying cinematic imagining at the time, and it wasn't just the real-world horrors that lured them in. The film employed the prestigious acting talents of both Ha Jeong-woo ("The Terror Live", "The Berlin File") and Kim Yoon-seok ("Hwayi : A Monster Boy", "Haemoo"), both of whom were recalled by Na for his sophomore feature "The Yellow Sea" in 2010. These two silver screen stars at the heart of Na's urban thriller, bringing to life Na's cruel and unusual collision of an ex-cop pimp and his cannibalistic counter,...More
