Blood’s vampire doctor gets a best friend

I almost didn’t recognize him without the Joseon musketeer’s outfit and brandished sword, but here’s rookie actor Jung Hae-in looking completely different in modernwear. He’s moving on up with a role on a broadcast show, and has been cast in the vampire-doctor drama Blood.

He’ll play best friend to the hero, the vampire surgeon played by Ahn Jae-hyun (You’re All Surrounded, You From Another Star) who works at a top hospital with terminal patients, doing his best to treat their illnesses with care and dignity (…and resisting the urge to drink them, I’m assuming? I mean, that’s not explicitly stated in the show description, but it’s kind of a given, isn’t it?). Jung Hae-in’s character will be an infectious diseases expert researching the “vampire virus,” and it’s his outstanding work in that field that draws the hero’s attention, and the two docs become fast friends.

Wait, but does he know his BFF is a vampire? Is he a vampire first and then they become friends, or does he become infected and then turn into a vampire? Details, I need details! (I’d love if he knew Ahn Jae-hyun’s secret since it seems a tortured hero could always use a confidante, even if that dynamic is a lot like Vampire Prosecutor.) But plot explanations are rather thin as of now, so I’ll be waiting for teasers and more promos to fill in the blanks.

In any case, this isn’t a bad trajectory for somebody who only debuted a year ago, starting with cable fantasy-fusion drama Bride of the Century before joining Three Musketeers as the monk-turned-bodyguard whose baby face contrasted with the fact that most of the time he seemed the most mature of the bunch. Blood also stars Gu Hye-sun, Ji Jin-hee, and Jo Jae-yoon, and comes from the PD and writer team who produced Good Doctor and God’s Quiz. It will premiere on KBS in February.

I'm sure this actor is great and all... but if he's not a vampire, he should look like someone who actually has a sizeable body of scientific work (aka at least mid 30s).

be the genius early, cause later you get a crush on a cinderella, angst, depression, an evil father-in-law and a weird nickname, and you´ll have no time for expressing your genius.

This guy could be genius. Also, he could have focused on this vampire virus during graduate school and become famous for it. Ji Jinhee seems to fit this role better though.

Lol the more the merrier it's not like you were gonna add anything anyway ratings or otherwise.

No offence to you dramabeans but erm it would be nice if you dont do reviews for blood good or bad, i think i speak for half of hye sun fandom and to some extent ahn jae hyun. Have never seen such bitchyness over and actor playing a lead role. You did the same for Angel eyes kindly do same for blood really truly deeply honestly dont need your reviews kasameda ??????

or maybe you can just avoid the recaps/comment section, if there would be any, because there might be people who you know are actually interested in the recaps of the drama (not me tho). js.

I'm definitely interested in there being recaps, because I'm going to need to talk about this.

::singing Broadway style:: Brooding VAAAAAMPIRRRES! Brooding VA-A-AMMPIRES!! They're sexy, they're dangerous, and hopefully there will be snappy dialog in addition to the sexy actors because you can cover almost any deficiencies with snarky dialog and a long coat"

Exactly. Don't like it? Then don't read it! Or set up your own drama recap site which only allows praise for actors no matter how bad.

When did honestly saying you don't like an actress become "bitchiness." It's poor form to start name-calling.

Everybody has their own opinion, so when you know that there is going to be something you don't agree with you have two options:
1) Read and accept other's opinions can differ from your own and they have the right to express it, or
2) Don't read and move on with your life.

Who are you to tell dramabeans what not to recap, are you that unable to take criticism if your biases for not living up to a lead role? Because I see here that when people improve at acting, most commenters recognise and praise it.

Some of you people seem to forget this is a recap site where people can state their honest opinions evenif it's negative, not a fansite.

Do you really honestly truly in real life actually think
GHS is hurt by anything people say here? She has braved worse over her career. K citizens asked her point blank why she doesn't quit acting.

She has the last laugh anyway, since she just keeps making dramas despite what anyone says.

Look, PUPPIES!

0

Isn't your reaction bit over the top? She is a bad actress and screaming all over the dramas I saw her in ruined my experience. Is saying that cyber bullying? Is expressing an opinion in plain words bullying?

I didn't call her names or made a petition to ask her to stop appearing in dramas. And nobody else in this thread. Fans need to learn to restrain their reactions. Not everybody has to love their idols and and this is part of the beauty of the world - diversity.

Cyberbullies mostly want to justify their actions with the word diversity. How hilarious!

Woah I did not recognize him at all. Meh. OH OH there's gonna be a birth secret! Well if he was always a vampire, like his mom had an infection when she was preggars and it made him a vampire and then he's going to meet this Jung Hae-in guy hoping for a cure and then find out its his half brother who is also a vampire but doesn't know yet. And it wasn't an infection at all, but their father is a vampire and its (the breathtakingly chiseled) Ji Jin-hee, their sworn enemy, as he is their ethical opposite in hospital politics (and as a "cured" vampire he hangs out there just in case and for power) and...

Is Kwon hyeon-sang still attached to this project? Then he comes in and screws everything up for everyone while looking awesome in the boxing ring with dreads (still holding out. If football players can do it, so can he).
Sigh. Enthusiasm, where are you?!

Yesssssss. He's even in the teaser below, chasing somebody through the woods like he's going to kick their ass and take their lunch money. (No dreads, though, sorry.)

LMAO at this convo. ^______^

I would love that Root Of All Vampires twist w/ Ji Jin Hee though!

Hey, he's described as evil and very ambitious. So why not? It could've been his failed medical experiment in finding a cure for all diseases (aka immortality).

Yup because the title Blood might imply the old saying "blood runs thicker than water*. Plus, Ji Jin Hee might just steal the show so they might as well make him a Bad Dad

We can only hope. Personally, even though I love his bad-guy roles, I'd like to see him as a romantic hero (and it's totally not because I want to see him do steamy kiss scenes or take brooding showers. ::cough::)

It would be nice to see him allowed to stretch his character skills & explore some other tones besides menace.

No dreads, BUT clearly the K-drama gods are smiling upon me, because the twitter feed for the drama just put up a photo of him in skinny pants, motorcycle boots, and (probably) guyliner. ::swoons::

Baby monk!! He was adorable in three musketeers. I don't think his role was that challenging so I'm not sure what his acting level is but....optimistic?

The plots starting to sound a tad bit better.

Does anyone know of a translated version of the teaser? (Or can anybody give the gist of what is being said?) I got a very rough idea, but but missed some there in the middle (I can neither confirm nor deny that Kwon Hyun-Sang's bad-boy forest pursuit might have caused me to stop paying attention to what was being said. :cough:)

I am neutral towards Gu Hye Sun now since Angel Eyes. I used to be very allergic to her, and could not watch her in anything since Boys Over Flowers. I honestly don't have much hope for this drama since I feel like Ahn Jae Hyun is a very limited actor. However, I really like Jung Hae In ever since Bride of the Century. I can't tell if he is a good actor or not, but I find him very attractive and...sometimes that is all I need to give a drama a try. *shallowthoughts* :D

When i saw that your article above that Jung Hae In was in BOTC drama - i had to go look at what character he played because i could not place his face an was SO SURPRISED that he was Choi Kang In - the rockstar younger brother of Choi Kang Joo played by my cutie Lee Hong Ki!

To further find out that Jung Hae In is actually 2 years OLDER than Lee Hong Ki is startling as Jung Hae In portrayed the younger brother pretty well!

In 3M he was the cool n calm one - don't blamed the maids for oggling him while he washing up!

Sounds like a win for the baby-faced vampires - after all, Ahn Jae Hyun also played Do Min Joon's junior in YFAS! (all that blood must keep 'em looking young. Fountain of Eternal Youth and all that)

To be honest, I'm mainly intrigued with Ji Jin-hee being in this and wondering how his role is going to play out.

I'm going to assume he's not a vampire. .... Then again, who knows, right?

Goodness me, guys, the hatred towards Miss Ku HyeSun is overboard. Not a fan of AE but both the leads including her did a good job of acting their characters as written.
Why not wait until the drama airs and watch a few episodes before judging?
A vampire/ medical drama? Bring it on! I have been waiting for it for years! Plus, this is the Good Doctor team.
Just keep an open mind. I don't know how many times I have changed my mind about a certain actor/ actress. It really depends on the character and whether it suit him or her, the writing, directing each time, etc.

"Disaster" - what a harsh word to a lead actress! Is she really so bad? Really? Really?

Just a kind advice - stay away from disasters!

She is really a dusaster (still remember bof disaster) and yes i"ll def stay away after hoping to watch her improves in dramas like take care of us cap, angel eyes, but she is still the same but i do like her beautiful face.

The solid writer is the only thing that's pulling me in but both leads are ......
Wonder why jin jin hee is not the lead

ahn jae hyun is kind of expressionless in all of his drama projects. so i'm not sure if it's a good idea to cast him as a lead actor. the drama seems to require lots of internal struggles...

anyway, will be keeping a lookout for this drama since it's on my channel. the director and writer are awesome though.
