I knew we'd get to see our genius dearest flaunt his big brain at some point and the 16 second teaser recently released shows us just that. There's no stopping the self-loving genius, but his partner holds a gift he and his big brain can't even fathom. "Children of a Lesser God" has also released character posters with some basic information.
The teaser may be short, but we get to see our hero brag about his IQ, lead a team into investigation and use some pretty extreme methods for reasons I'm sure we'll figure out. I mean, you'd think a genius would know better than to throw himself through a window, but hey, action and crime heroes are invincible, so I suppose that's fine.
As for the character posters, I'm glad that they are more visually appealing than the main ones. The information attached may be stuff we've already read and heard several times, but they encapsulate the essence of each character rather well. Kang Ji-hwan's Cheon Jae-in is described as "scientific investigation personified" and his line reads "The evidence is sin, the investigation is science!" Our heroine, Kim Ok-bin's Kim Dan, is a "detective with a gift" and her words sound isolating and tragic. "I am a witness who does not trust anyone".
We also get posters for our other two main characters. Shim Hee-sub is rocking the guyliner as Joo Ha-min, "an antisocial monster prosecutor". His line reads "The higher ups are letting you know. The deal has been closed". This leaves our mysterious "princess of a small kingdom", Baek Ah-hyeon (Lee Elijah). Her line is the most intriguing of all. The princess reads "I bought that person's future. It cost but a penny".
"Children of a Lesser God" has done a good enough job making me curious about the whole bell and kingdom bits, so I now look forward to February 24th with more excitement. Let's see whether this one will go above and beyond its gimmick.
