Floating from demon energy is not a pleasant situation to be in, but the exorcists of "Priest" are here, and they bring the Prayer to Saint Michael with them. The newly released teaser shows us an exorcism taking place in the drama's hospital setting, while its heroes try to do what they do best.
Yeon Woo-jin's Oh Soo-min drops the opening line of text, decisively and bravely going "In the name of the Lord, I ask you. What is your name?" He and Moon Ki-Seon (Park Yong-woo) recite parts of the aforementioned exorcism prayer in its original Latin, while our seemingly out of place doctor, Ham Eun-ho (Jung Yoo-mi) says "Things that should have never returned have come back".
As impressive as the teaser looks and sounds, I'm still not feeling the medical element. If the doubt between illness and possession is played up, I can see it working well. If it's simply there to keep patients alive during the ritual, it would only break the tension. If it's there to handle the mess at the end, it will feel like a mere addition, rather than an equal element.
What I do know is that OCN's crime focus always takes center stage, so if the possessions themselves, and the condition of the victims will be the only, or at least the main parts at play here, "Priest" might just do something new yet. The drama will be with us on November 17th, at 22:20 KST.
