Here’s what we know about Choi Dong-hoon Extraterrestrial until now
Although the plot of Extraterrestrial is not yet clear, the reports, as well as the trailer, suggest that it is essentially an alien who is trapped in a human body in the year 2022 and the events that have unfolded since the Goryeo dynasty hundreds of years ago.
The events of the modern world are somehow connected with the search for a mysterious sword in the ancient period.
Kim Tae-ri plays Lee Ahn, who has mystical powers. Ryu Jun-yeol plays a Taoist named Moo Reuk. Kim Woo-bin and So Ji-sub play alien escorts named Guard and Detective Moon Do-seok, respectively.
What does the trailer reveal?
The trailer of Extraterrestrial only gives a brief overview of what to expect. Viewers can see a machine-like alien and action sequences, with scenes quickly swinging between the Goryeo dynasty and modern times.
It starts with flying machines in the Goryeo period and quickly descends into pure chaos. There are escape sequences and alien tentacles grabbing hold of one character while the others try to make sense of the surrounding devastation.
The trailer keeps the air of mystery intact, giving no indication of how the timelines are connected. There’s virtually no dialogue except for vague references from some characters that add nothing to the detail.
