Watch: Park Hyung Sik, Han Hyo Joo, And Jo Woo Jin Try To Figure Out A Mysterious New Disease In “Happiness” Teaser
TVING’s upcoming drama “Happiness” (literal title) has released a preview of its first episode!
“Happiness” is an apocalyptic urban thriller that takes place in the near future within an apartment that is stratified by social standing. The high-rise apartment becomes sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges, and the drama will depict the fear, psychological battles, and desperate struggles for survival that ensue.
Han Hyo Joo stars as Yoon Sae Bom, a tactical agent in the Seoul Police Special Operations Unit, Park Hyung Sik stars as Jung Yi Hyun, a police detective in the violent crimes division, and Jo Woo Jin stars as Han Tae Suk, the man in the Armed Forces Medical Command in charge of finding the cause of the disease and stopping its spread.
The preview focuses on questions around the mysterious new disease that is rapidly seeping into daily lives. The clip kicks off with Yoon Sae Bom heading towards a room. Just as she peeks inside, she is attacked by a rookie agent who has turned into something that resembles a zombie. After taking him down, she asks Jung Yi Hyun, “How’d you manage to catch him without a gun?” In response, he calmly says, “I persuaded him with words.”
Han Tae Suk reveals that the virus that has caused people to attack them is a type of variant that affects the brain. Yoon Sae Bom seems like she can’t believe him, and Jung Yi Hyun is also skeptical as he asks, “Isn’t it a side effect of hallucinogenic drugs?”
Yoon Sae Bom ends up in the same room as one of the infected patients who attempts to attack her once again. Shocked, she manages to escape, but she angrily asks Han Tae Suk if he put her in there on purpose. He says, “One wrong move, and the world we knew yesterday might collapse.” Despite what Yoon Sae Bom has just witnessed, she remains positive as she says, “What’s the point of worrying? It might not even collapse.”
“Happiness” premieres on November 5 at 10:40 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki. Check out the teaser below!
