Duel has been another wonderful and awesome roller coaster joyride produced by OCN. The show was mind-blowing thanks to screenwriter and rookie actor, Yang Se Jong‘s outstanding and scenes-stealing performances. I really enjoy burning my brain and experiencing the high and low emotions along with our beloved clones—Sung Joon and Sung Hoon.
Now why can’t they spread out the goodness evenly?—we were lacking good shows earlier in the year, and now we are drown in so many awesomeness. But, no complains. I love the return of my biases in these shows and enjoying getting addicted to triple the goodness thanks to cloning.
First the casting news of Yang Se Jong and Seo Hyun Jin had me running around celebrating in heaven, then came Duel‘s episode 15-16 preview drag me down to hell. OCN, you are officially nicknamed Overly Cruel Network.
Episode 13 Thoughts
Bravado to the screenwriter. OCN’s chase thriller drama, Duel, has proven to be one of the smartest mystery drama I’ve ever seen. Episode 13’s twist and revelation really blew me away. This show fell under the radar in its country, but thankfully the low rating didn’t affect its quality, and the plot just gets better and better. We have three episodes left, questions are getting answered and this episode has highlighted to us the script is well-thought-out, characters or scenes from the past are starting to link together and nothing is wasted, and that they were shown for a reason (i.e. if we exclude the PPL).
— CONTAINS SPOILERS —
Some time in June, Yang Se Jong‘s agency sunbae and co-star of Saimdang, Light’s Diary Lee Young Ae sent a coffee/food truck support to the set of Duel. On that very same day, Se Jong and the casts—Jung Jae Young, Seo Eun Soo and Kim Ki Doo filmed a V Live to promote the drama.
Duel is OCN’s new drama that takes over Tunnel and is not to be overlooked. It stars Jung Jae Young, Yang Se Jong, Kim Jung Eun and Seo Eun Soo. Duel was supposed to appear in the next summarised Micro Drama Review, but four episodes in, the plot boggles my mind so much that I had to create a post on its own to empty my head.
W Korea presents the main faces of OCN upcoming drama Duel‘s Jung Jae Young, Kim Jung Eun and Yang Se Jong in their May issue.
I am interested in Duel solely of Yang Se Jong (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim) and the premise that he is playing dual roles. Usually these kind of roles would mean a huge challenge in acting; an opportunity to shine; a test to one’s acting capability—thus, I am all ready to sit and wait for him to impress. Seeing the latest teaser heightens the anticipation even more. The teaser shows us two very different Yang Se Jong facing off each other at a train station: one is wearing an evil smirk, holding a gun whilst the other had a bruised, worn out face with fearful tears in both eyes.
