SBS has shared an interesting new look at their upcoming drama “Trolley”!
“Trolley” is a new mystery romantic drama about a politician’s wife who faces the biggest dilemma of her life after a secret she’s been hiding is unexpectedly revealed. Kim Hyun Joo will play Kim Hye Joo, the wife of National Assembly member Nam Joong Do (Park Hee Soon), who chooses to stay out of the public eye instead of being active as a politician’s wife.
The newly released trailer opens with Kim Hye Joo’s daughter Nam Yoon Seo (Choi Myung Bin) asking her about a modified version of the famous “The Trolley Problem” from the moral philosophy that the drama is named after. “There’s a cart,” he says. “Because the brakes don’t work, if the trolley continues on its path, it will hit and kill five people. But if you change the [path] of the cart to a different track, the cart will turn and kill only one person. Mom, what would you do if that one person was someone I love?”
After glimpses of Kim Hye Joo’s happy family life flash by, things take a sinister turn when she is reunited with a furious Jin Seung Hee (Ryu Hyun Kyung), who warns her with barely concealed rage, “From now on, no matter what, what will i do , don’t blame me. Because you brought it all yourself.”
Nam Yoon Seo then suddenly disappears, leading to a rift between her once happily married parents. After a frantic search for their daughter, Nam Joong Do tells the police to treat their case like any other, without treating him as an elected official. An angry Kim Hye Joo argues, “But you’re Yoon Seo’s father first, before a member of the National Assembly.”
Nam Joong Do looks conflicted when asked, “Who are you doing politics for?” Meanwhile, Kim Hye Joo breaks down in tears as she says, “I’m so scared and afraid that another tragedy will happen.” Once a devoted husband, Nam Joong Do seems to be changing as he tells someone, “Please keep it a secret from my wife.” He then meets the mysterious Kim Soo Bin (Jung Soo Bin), an uninvited guest, who he asks, “Will you be able to take responsibility for this?
Finally, Nam Joong Do’s trusting Chief of Staff Jang Woo Jae (Kim Moo Yeol) tells his boss, “Betting my life on you, Assemblyman, will definitely become the best choice I could have made.”
