OCN’s Vampire Prosecutor in action

Yeon Jung-hoon is about to put his gentle image way behind him when his new drama series Vampire Prosecutor hits the airwaves this Sunday, and I’m really looking forward to it — both the drama and his image transformation, since it’s always the extreme shifts that are so intriguing, whether it’s gentle-to-badass or the reverse.

When the initial premise came out, the drama sounded like it could either be hilariously cheesy or compelling and dark, but thankfully the teaser pointed more toward the latter. It’s cable, so that means they get to take some more risks, regarding both the narrative and the visual expression of that narrative. Girl K whetted my appetite for harder-edged fare, and I’m hoping Vampire Prosecutor supplies that.

The premise: Yeon Jung-hoon plays a cold-hearted (in more ways than one) vampire who can see the moment of murder with one taste of the victim’s blood, which ought to come in handy for his prosecuting job. Not to mention his superhuman strength. To get into fighting form for the drama’s action scenes (in Korea, public prosecutors often take an active role in case-solving, like DAs and cops rolled into one), Yeon dropped 5 kg and has been training in the martial art julkwondo. Lesson of the day: Don’t mess with the vampire who can tear your heart out with his bare hands OR with his fangs, depending on whether he’s had lunch that day yet — and then toss your rotten carcass into jail using the legal system to boot. Talk about inflicting a wound, rubbing salt in it, having a taste, and then rubbing it in some more.

Vampire Prosecutor will run for 12 episodes beginning this Sunday, October 2, on cable channel OCN.

Just a friendly reminder about etiquette: Don't ask for recaps. If they show up, then they show up.
Meanwhile, you can just enjoy the show via downloads and I think dramafever will be picking it up since they have the trailer for it if you use that.

I'm pretty sure Dramafever's going to pick it up, but you can always find it other places online, as well, if neither Viki or Dramafever end up subbing it.

"Talk about inflicting a wound, rubbing salt in it, having a taste, and then rubbing it in some more."

Heh - sounds like a gastronomic vampire getting ready for his dinner!

Wonder how they're going to explain his eye color and what he eats? They better not take the easy way out with contacts and the local blood bank!

I adore him. I only watched "East of Eden" (although I never finished it) for him. He looks mighty good in that teaser :)

Can't wait for this. So awesome.

I was wondering about korean prosecuters since I watched city hunter.
The prosecutor kept doing stuff, and I was like, why is he doing this? Shouldn't he just call the police? Makes a lot more sense now.

I think I'm going to love this.

I have always found YJH really, really handsome. I think it's the confidence he seems to carry in his rolls. I first saw him in Yellow Handkerchief and have watched his career through the years. I think he's a very solid actor.

I love my flower boys, but if I want a man, it's him or Lee Jung Jae.

I have a question. If it is only going to air on Sundays, that means that its going to be one episode per week?
I really want to watch this one. I've always like vampires (except the Twilight ones, I've never seen a movie, neither the books) and the premise sounds good.

"...in Korea, public prosecutors often take an active role in case-solving, like DAs and cops rolled into one..."

I suddenly wanted to be a public prosecutor. In Korea. Do I need to be a vampire? :D

Wow, it looks badass. I hope I get to watch it.
