Teaser trailer #2 for OCN drama series “Possessed”

Teaser trailer #2 added for OCN comedy-supernatural-thriller drama series “Possessed” starring Song Sae-Byeok and Koh Joon-Hee. Personally for me, seeing Koh Joon-Hee appear in the teaser trailer while rocking an Ozzy Osbourne tshirt made my day. The teaser trailer starts off with Song Sae-Byeok’s narration of “When we investigate with fact…” Then, around 11 second mark, Koh Joon-Hee asks “What are you Detective Kang doing here?” Song Sae-Byeok replies “Can’t you see? I am catching a criminal.” It then appears that the criminal is actually a broom. Meanwhile, below are the first still images of Song Sae-Byeok as Kang Pil-Sung and Koh Joon-Hee as Hong Seo-Jung.

“Possessed” first airs February 13, 2019 in South Korea.
