Bad Guys prepares to unleash its hunting dogs

This totally crept up on me, partly because October crept up on me, but also because Saturday night isn’t the usual timeslot for OCN — their newest drama Bad Guys is finally premiering tomorrow, after spending months in development and production. (We’ve been calling it Bad Boys, but OCN seems to be going with Bad Guys.) Naturally we’ve got a dark crime thriller on our hands, but this one is boasting grittiness and action that seems a cut above, and I’m hoping that the extra time it took to get the show on the air means we get a more polished product.

The 11-episode action-thriller features a great cast of “bad guys to catch bad guys”: Leading the crew is Kim Sang-joong (A New Leaf), who plays a detective whose moral line is so blurry that the only thing differentiating him from the people he puts behind bars is his police badge. He cares only about chasing down criminals like a rabid dog, and will use any means necessary. He somehow finagles a way to bust three long-term jailbirds out of prison, and builds a team of criminals to hunt down other criminals.

Park Hae-jin (You From Another Star) is the serial killer psychopath with a genius IQ, who kills without emotion and leaves no trace of evidence behind. Ma Dong-seok (Kundo) plays a mob boss who crushed his way to the top of the gangster chain in 25 days, and still remains top dog in prison. Kim Sang-joong is the detective who put him behind bars, but he’s the one to get him back out to be the team’s muscle.

Jo Dong-hyuk (Age of Feeling) plays a contract killer who never once made a mistake, but suddenly confessed and turned himself in one day. He still makes a full-time living killing people from inside the prison walls. Something tells me you’ll need to convince this guy to get out of jail.

And Kang Ye-won (The Huntresses) plays the inspector who has to sign off on this shady arrangement and work with these guys, which she does because she’s ambitious. The teaser below cracks me up: She asks the three felons if they don’t want to try living like people, and Ma Dong-seok complains, “What’re we, dogs?” Jo Dong-hyuk: “Bear! Aren’t you a bear?” Let’s hope the show delivers the same moments of humor — amongst the rampant badassery, of course.

Bad Guys premieres tomorrow on OCN.

This looks like so much fun! And with some very pretty people. I like the 11 episode arc for this - 16 on these thrillers often seems like a few episodes too long and they lose steam right around episode 10.

Couldn't agree more.

Really looking forward to this drama. So tired of the current crop of dramas, and seems the Korean audience agrees as well (see low ratings).

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday dramas are pretty much terrible across the board. Only the weekend family dramas, seem to be worth a watch.

Monday-Tuesday

Discovery of Romance - stopped watching, would have been better off as a movie, not drama.

Night Watchman - what happened to the good sageuks, where are the current DJG, Yi San, Jumong, heck even Dong Yi

Secret Door - too early to tell

My Secret Hotel - snooze control

Yoo-na's Street - only decent one in the bunch

Wednesday-Thursday

Iron Man - bootleg YWCFTS, and terrible to boot.

My Spring Days - Yawn
She's So Lovable - Zzzzzzzzzzzz

Same I'm not interested in the dramas airing currently - so I've resorted to Variety shows to fill the void haha.

So definitely watching "Bad Guys" and the Korean remakes "Nodame Cantabile" & "Liar Game".

Something interesting to watch this year? It's been a long time since a Jdrama caught my attention, but I love their style so I would be happy to have some advice :D

Anyway, I love the vibe that these bad guys are giving. :) Definitely will be looking forward to watch it. I'm also longing for something different and exciting.

I've been mostly watching dramas from previous years: Liar Game Season 1, Liar Game Season 2, Liar Game Final Game, Galileo Season 1, Galileo Season 2, Border, Top Dog, and Hanzawa Naoki.

Wow! I thought I was the only feeling this way. I've had to stop watching dramas for a while now. Everything feels the same. Same story line and one can always predict the ending.

You should try Plus Nine Boys...but then again, maybe not, considering your tastes. I personally love it because of its atmospheric tone and music choice, but the show itself is not at all dramatic or epic. It's very slice of life, and some things may frustrate you, but the entire show feels really organic and grounded.

It's ending next week at 14 episodes, so it's not THAT long of a marathon?? LOL it's up to you though

There are just no words to describe how I feel at this moment.

Hopefully I will have words once I have seen the first episode, and with any luck at all they will be more than just NSFW explosions of nonsense.

I feel like I have been waiting forever and teased about this forever. It is THE show I have been looking forward to for the fall, and like Cates above, I am concerned because I have seen NO news about subbing.

9+ minutes long! I'm really curious about how the 3 bad guys were able to get out of jail and what is their incentive for helping the cop???!

But then again, when isn't he?

This definitely sounds quite interesting.

This is exactly the type of lead I wanted to see in a drama--an anti-hero. I think this will be worth checking out.

Yes. It's Chinese subs though. I'm glad I know mandarin. Chinese subs always appear within 24 hours.

It's really good! Be anticipating! I'm so curious to know their back story and what connects all of them together. And I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope for just some small amount of bromance. Please. Please please please please.

Just caught Episode 1. Promising though it didn't catch me quite there since this episode was mostly set-up. Jo Dong Hyuk's pretty will ensure I come back to catch Episode 2. By then, I hope the story will get going in earnest.
