Netflix has released the first trailer for its violent new revenge thriller Ballerina.
The trailer of the Korean film, which stars Jeon Jong-seo as Okju, gives viewers a sneak peek at a woman ready to risk everything for retribution.
In the trailer Okju is revealed – a former bodyguard consumed by her relentless quest to bring down Choi Pro (Kim Ji-hoon), the man who caused the tragic demise of her beloved ballerina friend Minhee (Park Yoo-rim).
The trailer offers a first glimpse at the lengths Okju is willing to go to to exact revenge on the person who – seemingly – caused the death of her best friend.
"You know my friend? The one who does ballet? She died," Okju says in one clip while opening a box of pristine pointe shoes with a note from Minhee that reads: 'Please get revenge for me.'
"There's something that I need to do," she continues, alongside shots of guns being loaded and the character stalking through a field of grass. "Something like a hunt."
Viewers are also offered a look at the film's antagonist – the merciless Choi.
A bloodbath set in what appears to be a cannabis farm is shown, all set to a pulsating beat, and Okju is seen in hallway confronting a man wielding a chainsaw.
"I'll hunt you down all the way to hell," Okju's voice tells Choi during a particularly brutal fight sequence between the pair, before the trailer ends with a sinister warning from the main character:
"Don't you remember? It's me. The ballerina."
Ballerina was directed and written by Lee Chung-hyun.
Ballerina is scheduled to premiere at 28th Busan International Film Festival on October 5, 2023.
It will be available to stream on Netflix on October 6.
