TvN's upcoming "The Cursed" sees your unchecked capitalism, and raises you demon-powered unchecked capitalism, reminding us that things can always get worse. The series has released its first teaser and poster, among other promotional material, and it looks like we're in for a dark, violent and entertaining ride. Grab your snacks and crucifixes.
The video shows us flashes of the occult, our heroes, our villains and the twisted happenings we can expect when natural evil meets supernatural evil. "The Cursed" follows the fight of a teen with special abilities and a righteous social issues reporter against the nation's largest IT conglomerate, run by a man who has made a deal with something much worse than himself. The teaser drops the Korean title of the series, "The Method", teasing "The only method to fight evil in a battle of supernatural madness".
The poster features Baek So-jin (Jung Ji-so), a young woman with the ability to bring death through her powers. It evokes imagery of the Little Red Riding Hood with a fiery twist. So-jin is unfazed while her form burns, and she lets us in on a little secret. "The curse begins in your heart", she says, no doubt to remind us that whatever evil has seeped into our world has been called here by a human monstrous enough to wield it.
Looking at the cast and creator duo of "The Cursed", one can tell how determined tvN is for some high production value content. I have nothing but excitement and anticipation for "The Cursed", which will be conjuring demons for our pleasure starting February 10th.
