Baek Sung-hyun leads the boys in Monster

This sounds pretty interesting: Baek Sung-hyun (Accidental Couple, Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds) is taking on a leading role in a Drama Special miniseries called Monster. Most Drama Special installments have been one-offs, but this one (like Rock Rock Rock) will have more episodes; it’s scheduled for eight total.

The plot of Monster involves murders that take place at a private high school over eight days of winter break, during which seven students and one teacher remain behind. In addition, a psychiatrist also joins them at the school after being involved in a car accident.

Bad stuff starts to happen after the receipt of a certain evil letter, and the people shut in at the school decide to track down the culprit. But trust is a rare commodity, and this turns into a never-ending game of cat and mouse.

Baek Sung-hyun plays a model student who lost his mother at a young age and has learned to keep his emotions under control with a strict poker face. Over the course of the drama, he shows a strong sense of duty and emerges as a leader of the students. Kim Sang-kyung of My Country Calls plays the teacher.

In addition to them, this thriller drama has also cast a few up-and-coming young faces: Kim Young-kwang, whom you may have glimpsed as one of the butlers from My Fair Lady, or from Triple; Lee Soo-hyuk, who’s also in the upcoming What’s Up; and Hong Jong-hyun from Jungle Fish 2 and horror flick Ghost — both of which were set in high school — though you may recall him as one of the Show Company employees from Oh My Lady. Pretty boys unite!

The creative team seems well-equipped for this kind of story as well: directing is PD Kim Yong-soo of 2008’s folk-horror anthology series Hometown of Legends, and writing is Park Yeon-seon of 2007’s excellent treasure-hunt mystery Mixed-up Investigative Agency, 2006’s sensitive Alone In Love, and the thriller movie Into the White Night.

Monster will air its first episode on January 30 on KBS.

he is so damn fine. (stares)

although i have only seen him in accidental couple, he was one of my faveourite characters. his bromance with Hwang Jung Min was one of the main reasons why i still watched the show...in fact, by the end, i think i preferred their relationship over the main ;)

fighting!
