The much anticipated fantasy/romance drama involving twin brothers (Ji Sung The Devil Judge 2021) that discover that their birth father killed their step-father and now is in jail with a death sentence, releases their first episode tonight! The 16-episode tvN drama is scheduled to broadcast on Wednesday and Thursday nights at 10:30 PM KST.
Check out the trailer!
Director Park Seung Woo explained why Adamas is more than just one genre:
“We have been saying it’s an investigation drama, but can we describe it in one word? I thought a lot about this at the start. It’s hard to explain a drama with one expression. If I say it’s a mystery thriller, there’s also a side of powerful action. If I consider it action, there are also noir aspects. It feels like a mix of various genres. It’s hard to describe this aspect. I wonder if it isn’t even a genre drama.”
Ji Sung plays duo roles as identical twin brothers Ha Woo Shin, an author, and Song Soo Hyun, a special forces prosecutor working at the Central District Prosecutor's office. Ji Sung explains his approach to his roles in Adamas, “The two people have the same start. As they’re similar, there were a lot of difficult aspects as I tried to emphasize the portrayal of their subtle differences.”
Seo Ji Hye plays the role of Eun Hye Soo, the daughter-in-law of Haesong Group's CEO. She revealed the challenges in her new role. “I wondered how to portray the complicated emotions of whether [Eun Hye Soo] will aid Woo Shin and what kind of character she will be. Since the drama’s script was so solid, I just followed the flow of emotions and it went well. That’s why I tried to be secretive in real life too.”
Lee Soo Kyung plays Kim Seo Hee, a special affairs reporter for TNC. She explains the challenges of preparing for the role. “I felt that the career of a reporter was charming. There are also secrets that Seo Hee has. I was drawn to her because she’s a character with a twist. Seo Hee is the type to tenaciously bite and stretch something once she’s set on a goal. She has good endurance. My endurance is not great. That’s our greatest difference.”
Finally, veteran actor, Heo Sung Tae, commented on his character, Choi Tae Sung, a general security manager for Haesongwon, the residence of Haesong Group's chairman, “In real life, I have no charisma. When I’m acting, I have to play powerful roles so there are some aspects that make me cringe. Out of all the roles I’ve done, the general security manager is my most sophisticated role. I’m thankful to the director for giving me this opportunity. [Choi Tae Sung] has sophisticated charisma.”
We're very excited for the premiere of this drama tonight! Hopefully, this drama will continue a blockbuster of hits for this summer and into the fall season! Comment your thoughts and predictions for this drama! We would love to hear from you!
Adamas premieres on July 27 at 10:30 p.m. KST on tvN.
