Disney+ Korea has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming original K-drama series, Grid.
Starring Seo Kang-joon (Are You Human?), Kim Ah-joong, Kim Mu-yul (Space Sweepers), Lee Si-young (Sweet Home) and more, Grid revolves around police investigations of supernatural entities (played by Lee) who appeared in 1997 to save humanity. The entity reappears 24 years later, only to help a serial killer (Kim Sung-kyun) escape.
“We didn’t look for him, we made him come looking for us,” said Seo, who plays police officer Kim Sae-ha at the beginning of the clip. Then, detectives Jung Sae-byeok (Kim Ah-joong) and Song Eo-jin (Kim Mu-yul) are seen chasing the entity, who easily evades them by disappearing into the air.
