Netflix has just unveiled the teaser trailer for their highly anticipated original series, Mask Girl.
Set to premiere on August 18th, this thrilling new show follows the life of Kim Momi (played by Go Hyun Jung and Nana), an ordinary office worker struggling with appearance issues and chooses to cover her face with a mask. However, things take an unexpected turn as she starts streaming videos online and finds herself in a dangerous incident. The series is helmed by Kim Yong Hoon, who won the Jury Prize at the 49th Rotterdam International Film Festival with Beasts Clawing at Straws.
The new teaser for the series starts with the main character, Momi, livestreaming and asking the audience if she looks pretty. But the mood quickly shifts when she is shown standing over a dead body with a knife. “3 names, 3 murders, 3 lives,” reads separate title cards in the teaser while an exciting montage of scenes from the upcoming K-drama plays. It also showcases thrilling scenes like a girl crying in a mask, a fist fight, and a shotgun being fired. Additionally, the teaser introduces Kim Kyung Ja (The Glory‘s Yeom Hye Ran), a single mother in distress in an abandoned church, and Ju Oh Nam (Be Melodramatic‘s Ahn Jae Hong), Momi’s co-worker at the office.
The trailer has already sparked enthusiastic reactions, leaving everyone eager to see what Mask Girl has in store for us.
