2PM’s Taecyeon shared his thoughts about his new tvN series “Blind”!
“Blind” is a mystery thriller that depicts the story of people who have unfairly become victims because they are ordinary and perpetrators who have closed their eyes to the uncomfortable truths. The story centers around detectives, judges, law school students, and jurors.
Taecyeon plays Ryu Sung Joon, a violent crimes detective who is hell bent on catching criminals. Ha Seok Jin takes on the role of Ryu Sung Joon’s older brother Ryu Sung Hoon who is also a perfectionist judge. Apink‘s Jung Eun Ji stars as the social worker Jo Eun Ki who is one of the jurors for a murder trial.
Taecyeon shared that he was attracted to Ryu Sung Joon the moment he read the script, saying, “I’ve always liked mystery and thriller genres, and the tangled relationships of the characters in ‘Blind’ and the strange psychological warfare where they doubted each other were so attractive.”
Concerning the first impression of Ryu Sung Joon, Taecyeon remarked, “I was more interested in him because he was an extraordinary hot-blooded detective.” In particular, he was drawn to the fact that, although Ryu Sung Joon was born as the second son of a well-to-do family, he doesn’t really get along with them and instead chases after criminal cases without any hesitation.
Taecyeon also expressed his pity towards Ryu Sung Joon, who faced many hardships and obstacles while hunting down the truth of the mystery case involving jurors. He explained, “Ryu Sung Joon’s biggest charm is that he tries not to lose his righteousness until the end with a strong will to catch the real criminal even though he continuously fights alone without being able to rely on anyone.”
Taecyeon talked about what he’s focusing on in order to better portray Ryu Sung Joon. He explained, “I thought the most important point was the inner emotional changes of Ryu Sung Joon, who faces a shocking truth as the incidents of the case become revealed one by one.”
The actor increased anticipation for the drama’s premiere by sharing a key point. He commented, “I think tvN’s ‘Blind’ is a fun drama where [viewers can] deduce who is the culprit of the serial murder involving jurors and what the real evil that is hiding the truth through the new hints given in every episode. I hope you can experience the entertainment of mystery thrillers.”
Lastly, Taecyeon remarked, “As it is a project that many people worked hard to make, I think viewers will be able to feel fresh shock and fun through our drama. Please show lots of anticipation and love from the beginning to end.”
“Blind” premieres on September 16 at 10:40 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser here!
