His name is Ji Oh (z-0) the subject of biological experiment research, conducted by a group of scientists. Since childhood he has experienced cruel experiments, he was rushed by another scientist and his laboratory was burned. Ji Oh so hunts into adulthood. Life is not permanent, and every time it uses its powers it forgets the memory of who it is.
Ryu Joong-Kwon is the scientist who developed this experiment. Which carries based on Charles Darwin’s concept of human evolution. That every living organism is descended from a single ancestral population commonly called the Last Universal Common Ancestor (LUCA). He didn’t want humans to stop evolving, so he created a project so humans wouldn’t experience extinction. His place of work was against him, he was deemed insane and expelled from the foundation. He was even caught embezzling funds for research. He was imprisoned and then disappeared.
Ji Oh is a subject that Ryu Joong-Kwon has done successfully. That’s why he was hunted down, to take his LUCA cells and breed them. To live new subjects that can be used. This project is funded by state officials and protected by people who have great power in South Korea.
Ji Oh’s physique is like that of a human, only he has superpowers that can turn him into a monster. If so, he’s in danger of course. The hairs all over his body would stand on end if he met an evil stranger. His instincts could feel. He can issue a large electric force, extinguish, and even destroy many buildings at once. The power that Ji Oh uses when threatened, will make her keep forgetting who she is. When he found out who he was, in episode 6 of L.U.C.A: The Beginning he was tricked by Ryu Joong-Kwon. He endured excruciating pain. I can’t bear to see this scene. After all, he was electrocuted with high strength, high, and to the maximum extent, he was able to withstand. sob! Well, his name is also the main character in the story. Have to suffer, to get happy.
Ji Oh’s job changes, she becomes a garbage collector for a cosmetics company. If it was found out where he was, he has hunted again and moved. This is what happens continuously. Until he meets Goo-reum, a female detective who is chasing criminals and gets hit. Ji Oh helps save the dying Goo-reum with the power of her electric voltage. In the hospital, do you use a kind of shape that looks like an iron, right? If Ji Oh just use both hands.
Ji Oh’s help makes Goo-reum keep looking for who Ji Oh really is. Is it true that Ji Oh is a child who she thinks is her sister, who was brought home by her parents? And after Ji Oh stayed a day at his house, his parents died. All his life Goo-reum has been searching for the question of where his parents are. Still alive or dead. The key he’s been looking for has come to him, this is Ji Oh. Goo-reum still remembers, when Ji Oh got angry her eyes would turn blue, and give off a huge electric force.
Ji Oh and Goo-reum’s meeting leads them to find out where his missing parents are. Who is Ji Oh? Will they find out the truth? And how can this conspiracy of evil people behind the L.U.C.A: The Beginning project be caught? I’m still really curious about who Ji Oh is, where did she come from, how can she be used as an experiment. When Ryu Joong-Kwon said his father, I couldn’t believe it. That’s tough, I hope not. And several scenes state that Ji Oh’s father, who is also a scientist, took Ji Oh away because he wanted to sell him. I don’t know who’s right, let’s just watch Luca’s The Beginning Drakor to the end. Still, less than 6 episodes to finish.
