Curtain Call: Korean Drama (2022)

Curtain Call Drama Info

'Curtain Call' is one of the most anticipated dramas among the dramas scheduled to air on 31 October 2022, and the newly released teaser alone is raising viewers' expectations.

The first teaser for the upcoming drama “Curtain Call” has been released, and it looks like we’re in for a suspenseful ride. In the trailer, the actors' fascinating acting skills stand out, giving a glimpse of the epic story that will unfold in the future, along with scenes that move quickly between the past and the present.

Ja Geum Soon, who seems to recall memories of the past, looks at the frame and suddenly leads to the past in which a man and a woman (Kang Ha-neul, Ha Ji-won) are chased by something. Their lives just stop suddenly and look at each other affectionately.

Soon after, a scene shows the man (Kang Ha Neul) wearing a North Korean military uniform as he shouts, "Democratic People's Republic of Korea!" Tensions rise as the gunshots startle, only making viewers feel comfortable but slightly confused when a mysterious man (Sung Dong Il) asks Yoo Jae Heon, "Do you want to play with me?"

Finally, Yoo Jae Heon can be heard saying to Ja Geum Soon, “After seeing you off, I have to go back to where you belong. While I'm here, use me". The teaser ends with the drama title seen through a waving curtain, reminiscent of a real Curtaincall signaling the end of the show.

Curtain Call Drama Plot Summary

Ja Geum Soon was born in 1930 in present-day North Korea. When the Korean War broke out in the 1950s, she fled to present-day Korea and was separated from her husband and young children. She dreams of reuniting with them and builds a hotel that will become her metaphorical lighthouse and hope to bring her lost family back to her. This hotel has become a successful paradise hotel chain.

Now, Ja Geum Soon is nearing her deathbed, and she dreams of reuniting with her grandson, Im Moon Sung, whom she has never met. Before she dies, her always faithful assistant Jung Sang Cheol plans to bring her peace to her grandmother. He will hire an actor to play the role of Im Moon-Sung. He looks for stage actor Yoo Jae-heon, who is struggling to play a North Korean soldier on the stage. Jaeheon Yoo agrees. Before returning to North Korea, she is said to be in the form of a North Korean defector who came to visit an old woman for a while. But soon it appears that he has bitten more than he can chew.

There are a few websites that have influenced me to write. These are MyDramaList, Soompi, Alkopop and AsianWiki. I have never really thought about writing about myself until now. I think it would be a fun experience to write about myself for a website.
