Soundberry, an audio content production company previously released the audio drama ‘How to Be a Family’ by Moju. This time, the manhwa ‘Checkmate’ by Tan is Soundberry’s second audio drama project. The manhwa was first released in 2020 and was later serialized in English by Lezhin US and was completed in 2023 with 113 chapters. The manhwa captured readers with its gripping, tense, and well-written plot.

The teaser features Lee Soohyun’s monologue expressing his envy and resentment toward Jung Eunsung and his feelings of being overshadowed by him. Despite his efforts to match Eunsung’s achievements, he continued to feel inferior and became obsessed with surpassing him. This obsession turns into a desire for revenge, hoping to see his downfall.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS (from Lezhin): Soohyun doesn’t have a “first love,” but he definitely has a “first hate” – his high school classmate Eunsung. A smooth-mannered all-star, Eunsung snaps up first place in everything, leaving Soohyun always trailing behind in second place. Winning out over Eunsung is the one thing that motivates Soohyun, but after graduation, Soohyun contents himself with a dull, mediocre life. One day, Eunsung appears on the news, knee-deep in scandal and, for once, not perfectly at ease…lighting Soohyun’s inner fires once again. Desperate to see a fallen Eunsung with his own eyes, Soohyun jumps into the fray as a reporter and gets Eunsung to strike an outrageous deal with him.
