Alice: Trailer & Plot break-down
It all begins with Park Jin Gyeom’s tough high school days, where he gets blamed for school violence. Still, he has his poor mother stands by him and believes in him no matter the circumstance.
What begins to make things complicated is Jin-gyeom’s mother’s involvement with time traveling and the dangers that come with it. She insists that her son should tell her if any strange people come to him. Soon afterward, she is murdered, and her son or the police for the matter have no idea who the killer is.
The surprising element till this point is the ‘who’ regarding the hero’s mother (Kim Hee-sun), considering that the same Hee-sun is to become his love interest later on. Could she be a look-alike of his mother (when they could have another actor play the role), or is there a befitting connection? By all means, the writers will have to do a convincing job in tying it all up.
Anyways, the tragic death of the lead’s mother turns him into an unfeeling, coldblooded adult. He has also become a detective to catch the culprit, and in doing so, he unexpectedly comes across an even bigger mystery of time-traveling.
Who or what is Joo Won’s Alice?
The murderer of the lead’s mom is among the mysterious bunch causing disturbances in the modern-day world, and Park Jin Gyeom tries to find out the perpetrators and reason behind the strange occurrences. During his investigations, he discovers a hotel operating the time machine called ‘Alice.’
The events work to reunite fateful lovers, Yoon Tae-Yi and Park Jin-gyeom.
The story-line holds eye-catching elements: suspense, action, comedy, melodrama, and the trailer does its job in raising all the crucial questions. While romance is a central theme, it all hangs on how they handle the science-fiction. If the writers make good use of the research with their imaginative prowess and portray the workings of the time warp well, there is hope for the production, or else all will fall through.
Among the points which make Alice promising is undoubtedly the sci-fi lead who is relatively famous for having an eye for scripts. Will Joo Won’s Alice be an unprecedented hit? We can only wait to see if he outdoes his previous performances with it.
The latest SBS series will premiere in early August 2020.
