Bad Boys behind bars prepare for the hunt

OCN may only have one genre angle in programming its original drama series content (crime, crime, and more crime), but if it can’t have breadth, at least it has depth. And of all the channels putting out scripted drama content, it does have the grittiest, goriest fare, and its new series Bad Boys ought to fit right in with its other bloody crime thrillers like Ten, God’s Quiz, and Vampire Prosecutor. (My stomach isn’t always up for the graphic violence of its shows, but I do appreciate that there’s a corner of dramaland that’ll go dark and twisted, even if OCN’s shows can get rather gratuitous.)

In the most recent stills released from Bad Boys, pictured above and directly below, we get a glimpse of Park Hae-jin taking a darker turn from his softer, gentler image (You From Another Star, Doctor Stranger) to play a young genius and psychopath. He’s pictured sitting by a pool of blood wearing an expressionless face, which is also how he’s depicted in the stills below where he sits in prison as a convicted criminal.

He doesn’t stay there for long, though, since the premise of Bad Boys is that a badass detective (played by Kim Sang-joong) gathers together a team of criminals to help work on a case, thus becoming “bad guys who catch other bad guys.” The detective leader’s approach states that a perfect hunt requires even more vicious hunting dogs, and these guys just the thing for the job. Ma Dong-seok plays another criminal on the team, a gangster, while Jo Dong-hyuk is the killer for hire with the abs of steel. Kang Ye-won rounds out the team as police inspector.

Bad Boys will be a Saturday-night drama on OCN and premieres on October 4.

Oh hell f***ing yes.

I'd be worried about my level of excitement over this, but these are good actors who reliably deliver. PLEASE MARY do your Rim magic and make this give me what I want.

My Rim magic is a capricious beast who won't listen to me. :(

Unless... do you want apple jokes in this drama? I think my magic is only good for that. T^T

I am not worried over my level of excitement. I cannot wait. There are SO many options with this show. You can't ever have too much Ma Dong Seok! I am ready for dark; the fall semester has started.

Bloody hell!* That first pic!

White concept photography is my favourite, but in general this drama has some great visual promo materials. Is the cinematography going to be as good? It's not my kind of drama, but I'm really digging the visual style.

*British 'bloody'.

off topic but 'bloody' is such an incredibly handy swearword (it's considered slightly old-fashioned where I live, being mainly used by old stiff-upper-lip army/police type gentlemen), I can feel as much annoyance vented off by using it as I do by using the f-word (and it is somehow less offensive too)

Seriously, it looks just so good. I am thrilled to see how they are going to make us "like" the bad guys because right now, I can't really think ... Except if they are like Dexter and kill only the bad guys ... with exceptions of course lol.

I think it'll be a bit like with Woobie in Heirs. Aura. They'll make them ooze with seriously problematic but utterly fascinating character. Of course, they need they right actors to be able to pull this off...

I'd say, judging from those images, they'll do mightily fine. No doubt about Kim Sang-joong, not quite so sure about Park Hae-jin in terms of acting skills although he's definitely killing it in those pictures. Too bad Kim Woobin isn't in this.

Let's hope the script is solid.

yesss it's out so soon! Park Hae-jin has the potential to kill this role (pun intended), I just hope the procedural aspects aren't as messy as in Gap-dong.

(also if Lee Jong-seok signs that Park Hae-ryun November drama, Kang Sora has Misaeng coming out in October, and PHJ has this, we can all forget about that other 2014 drama they did, right? That's only a good thing)

Gap-dong was more about its psychology by the end, but the actors were much better than the writer.

OCN is doing well with its thrillers recently though - Reset looks great so far!

Hmmm. Gap Dong was on TvN. I think if we moved the Gap Dong premise over to OCN we would've had something incredibly dark.

Aww it would be more fun if they'd cast Ha Ji-won or Han Groo and made the female the craziest, most dangerous prisoner.

Han Groo's acting debut had her playing the craziest angriest girl in town, and doing it perfectly.

So Hannibal/White Collar, got it. Probably will watch this.

Oh and OCN, switch it up. With the freedom they have they could be putting out some great tv from every genre imaginable! They could probably do a killer saguek. Wait didn't they but it didn't do well or something? It was like Spartacus, right?

Could we look forward to recaps?

Goodness I haven't watched any of the OCN shows (someone's going to skin me alive for saying this with Vampire Hotness roaming around)

But I might actually give this a try! I have always had a thing for Kim Sang Joong ever since City Hunter. (Evil Daddy FTW!). And I kind of always like Park Hae Jin even from his Family Outing days. And Ma-Dong Seok! His is a face I know and I like! I know all of these men will deliver, without doubt.

(And I know this is off topic but I've just finished watching the first season of Fargo in one sitting and very impressed by the skillful storytelling in it)
That makes me in the mood for more gory, quirky, dark bloodbath of a drama. So please show, be as clever as I want you to be.

Park Hae Jin is doing pretty well despite the mess of Doctor Strange, I mean at least he's branching out and picking new roles that will challenge him. Ugh these teasers just make me love him more.

The other inmates, ommo I can already see the bromance forming haha

I might just give this a go, even though I don't like gory stuff much. Yay for more eyecandy!

Well if Park Hae Jin had been disappointed about not getting to play Creepy Bro in YFAS, this will totally make up for it! I'd had trouble imagining him be Creepy Bro, but these stills totally help me to see his creepy side! XD

I didn't think of the OCN crime shows as having gratuitous violence, they do bleep/censor some of the stuff like knives. Then again i started reading true crime in elementary school so i might be a bit jaded...
This and Dr Frost look interesting. It sort of reminds me of Leverage(group of bad guys take down horrible bad guys) but this is darker and more murdery. I'm hoping Han Groo is badass.

That's more like it! And we all love bad boys. I hope it'll be really dark and twisted. At least judging by all the ketchup smeared on the actor and da empty stare they are ready to show us some graphic violence, traumatized personalities and hadcore stuff. On my watchlist. Surpulus princes is nice but it's so sweet it ruined my stomach and I don't like the lead in 'its okay'. He is unconvincing. besides, he plays the stereotipical author. And the less said about that gap dong killer mystery drama 'plot', the better.

Of course, that's because it's OCN and they knock it out of the park with their crime dramas. I was interested (and continue to be) with the story, and the cast! MAN! :) I don't think this'll let me down as Gap-dong did earlier this year...if it's anything like Vampire Prosecutor and Ten, I don't think Bad Boys will be mediocre. At all.

It's still a bit weird for me to see PHJ in such a dark role, but I do think he'll be able to pull it off. Can't wait to see badass KSJ again :P

I am super excited about this show.
Not only because of the cast but also due to it being OCN. If you put perfect cast and perfect network together it's impossible for it to go wrong.
Also, the Kim Sang Joong promo with the dogs might be the hottest thing I've ever seen. I thought he was a badass in A New Leaf so I can't wait to see him up his evil game.
And yes, I got the L vibe from PHJ as well. Don't mind it one bit.
