SBS posted a boatload of drama information about its upcoming Mon-Tues drama Athena: Goddess of War. All of these are taken directly from the SBS Athena website. It’s quite lengthy, and give away the plot set-up and character details, so don’t read if you don’t want to be mildly spoiled. I’ve also provided the latest trailers for Athena – the longer one was shown at the press conference, and the shorter one just got released and is narrated by Su Ae’s character.
Mild spoilers: reading the official synopsis and character descriptions, watching the latest trailer, and reading the news reports, it’s clear that Su Ae plays a double agent of both the NIS and Athena (the terrorist organization). It’s unclear where her real loyalties lie, but she clearly falls in love with Jung Woo Sung, and vice-versa, which throws a wrench into her plans. Dangermousie earlier ran a poll on who was most likely to bite it in Athena, and this just lobs Su Ae right to the top of the list, if you ask me.
Latest trailers for Athena:
They be torturing my honey’s honey in front of my honey! Oh geez, I knew it would be the opposite of the IRIS scenario. If Su Ae does bite it at the end of the drama, my honey will be sad. Which makes me sad. Frankly, Athena appears as slick as IRIS, and that makes me gird myself for tons of action, some emotion, but ultimately more excitement than heart and soul. I’m okay with that. I just hope the plot holes are not bigger than a mack truck.
