Lee Da-hee

In “Island,” Lee Da-hee plays the role of Won Mi-ho, an heiress of the world-renowned conglomerate Daehan Group and a fixed-term teacher. She has everything one could wish for including money, aptitude and beauty.

But she lives without peace due to malicious media attention. She ends up going to Jeju Island due to an unexpected incident and is attacked by evil demons she has never seen before and becomes involved in a tremendous battle.

One of the stills showed Won Mi-ho appearing frightened as though someone or something is chasing after her. In another still, the heiress gives off a sophisticated aura with her polished styling. The last still shows Mi-ho in front of a classroom in her role as a fixed-term teacher.

Lee Da-hee, who has impressed viewers through her acting in various projects so far, will showcase her solid acting skills and charm once again through “Island.”

“With every filming, Lee Da-hee portrayed her character Won Mi-ho with elaborate detail and a great aura. You can look forward to detailed acting skills as a character who unknowingly ends up standing at the center of fate after an unexpected incident,” according to the producers of “Island.”

Cha Eun-woo

Cha Eun-woo, who is a member of K-pop idol group ASTRO, portrays the role of Yohan, a known exorcist. Adopted overseas soon after he was born, he receives God’s calling and becomes the youngest exorcist. He gets dispatched to Jeju Island one day, and becomes swept up in a whirlwind of fate as he faces a day written in prophecy.

In the first still, Cha Eun-woo is perfectly synchronized as his webtoon character wearing a priest gown. Wearing headphones and lighting candles, Yohan appears to be preparing for something. In another still, Yohan looks like he is waiting for someone outdoors. In another still, Yohan is dressed casually, highlighting another side to the young exorcist.

“Cha Eun-woo surprised staff members by expressing his character Yohan more freely as filming went on. A new side of Cha Eun-woo that has never been seen before will fill the series, so please show lots of interest,” producers of the series said.

“Island,” a highly anticipated Amazon Prime Video original series, will premiere on Dec. 30.
