Joo Sang-wook takes a devilish turn in cable’s TEN

OCN’s got another original drama in the works, which you’ll know if you’re watching their Sunday drama Vampire Prosecutor, since that thing is riddled with promos for Special Crimes Force TEN, or simply TEN.

Joo Sang-wook (Giant, Thorn Birds) stars as a cool-headed ace detective who heads a special investigation unit devoted to solving unsolved cases with very low arrest rates. The drama takes a ripped-from-the-headlines approach, basing its cases on real-life crimes.

What makes TEN different from other straightforward police procedurals is that our leading man isn’t exactly a shining hero, or a noble one. Well, perhaps he’s driven by noble intentions, but only in a Machiavellian, ends-justify-means sense. He’s picked up the nickname “Devil Cop,” one who ascribes to the theory: “To catch a criminal, be as evil as he is.” After watching so many dramas featuring perfect heroes, or cold-on-the-outside-but-well-meaning-on-the-inside men at the very least, it’ll be refreshing to watch one who rests on the complete opposite end of that character spectrum.

Frankly, the trailers don’t explain much about the drama at all, but they suggest that we can expect cool visual effects and a sharp sense of cinematography, like lots of cable offerings these days.

Joining Joo Sang-wook on his investigations are Kim Sang-ho (Ajusshi in City Hunter) and Jo Ahn (Great King Gwanggaeto). The drama is produced by the folks behind one of cable’s popular dramas, the sageuk cop drama Chosun Police, which enjoyed several seasons on the channel MBC Dramanet.

TEN will be short and sweet with 10 episodes, airing on Friday nights at midnight. Its first episode airs on November 18.

I liked my JSW evil and sexy in Queen Seon Deok just that some heroes were more devilish and sexy than him (MiShil, Bidam and even Kim Chun Chu)

He wasn't in pain in QSD

some other dramas didn't have a subject on my liking but I was happy for him that he got to be main lead material, which is a big thing in Klala Land and just a few ppl can have it

I just knew you'd be here, Jomo! LOL! He's got such a world-weary face, with those sad soulful eyes. I think he'd be perfect for the role.

Love him! :) I always thought he was a good-looking (albeit wooden) man, but really fell for him in Giant. I love him angsty and in pain. I think he'll pull off a "devil cop" really well. Evil JSW. Can't wait!

*side note: I really need to start Vampire's Prosecutor soon*

Oo... I'm always a sucker for grey area characters, especially if they're cops. His characterization reminds me of Luther, if you ever watch the show, it's a BBC produced crime show that's 10 episodes long so far. lol. Can't wait for this.

I'll tune in for this one. I like that cable dramas aren't afraid to stay away from the romance angle. In this regard, it reminds me of the variety we get with jdramas - no love triangle and just sticking to the main plot line sans the 'drama'.

I think I'm going to love cable.

Love crime dramas! I've always been on the fence with this actor but I can really see him in this role and am looking forward to seeing him be this "Diablo" of a cop. Doesn't hurt that he's working those clothes. Shower scene? Oh drama gods please!
