. It became a troublesome problem with repeated programming, but it came to light through OCN. However, the unveiled ‘Chimaira’ clearly radiated its presence by revealing its charm as a genre, from the interesting subject of a serial explosion and murder case that crosses the past and the present, the actors’ passionate performances without holes, and sensual directing. It is truly the birth of a masterpiece.
OCN’s new Saturday drama, ‘Chimaira’ is a series of explosive murders that started again after 35 years for the first time in 35 years for the first time in 35 years, with homicide detective Jae-hwan (Park Hae-soo), profiler Eugene (Soo-hyeon), and surgeon Joong-yeop (Lee Hee-jun) having a different purpose. A tracking thriller that follows the truth of ‘.
Actor Park Hae-soo, who showed impressive performances in Netflix’s ‘Squid Game’ and tvN’s ‘Wise Prison Life’, and movie ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, ‘Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald’, etc. Actor Soo-hyeon who is receiving it, and actor Hee-jun Lee, who is performing passionately across dramas and movies such as tvN’s ‘Mouse’ and the movie ‘Namsan’s Managers’, took the lead role and completed a solid lineup, collecting topics.
However, the journey to seeing the light of ‘Chimaira’ was not smooth. In June 2019, while filming was in progress, an incident occurred in which an assistant director, A, sexually harassed a scripter, B, at a meeting of the production team. In the process of rectification, producer C committed a second offense to B, saying, ‘Your fault for not avoiding it’. The production company hastily issued an official apology and dismissed the assistant director and producer, but the controversy did not subside, and the drama filming was stopped. Filming resumed after a month, but ‘Chimaira’ has already left an indelible stigma as a sexual harassment-controversial drama.
Is that why? ‘Chimaira’ had difficulties in organizing even though all filming was completed in 2019. It’s a pre-produced work because it makes sense, but it’s just drifting away with nowhere to go. Even though it was a 13 billion dollar project.
In fact, the reason ‘Chimaira’ was able to be organized after two years was possible because of Park Hae-soo, who made his name globally through ‘Squid Game’, and Lee Hee-jun, who received attention due to the box office of ‘Mouse’. If the main actors didn’t do anything special this year, ‘Chimaira’ would still have a headache in organizing.
