Kim Yoon-hye joins Vampire Detective to romance Lee Joon

OCN’s upcoming vampire detective drama titled (aptly) Vampire Detective is adding Kim Yoon-hye (Flower Boy Next Door, You’ve Fallen For Me) to the cast, and she’ll be romancing the titular hero, to be played by Lee Joon (Heard It Through the Grapevine).

This is the drama that’s totally not related to Vampire Prosecutor despite sounding very similar to it, centering around a hero who’s a private investigator with a prickly personality who suddenly becomes a vampire one day. He takes on a diverse range of cases and solves problems for his clientele, while also investigating a mystery dealing with his own past and its secrets. Yup, nothing like Vampire Prosecutor, right? (I don’t think the odds are great of us getting a Season 3 on that drama, and have to wonder if OCN decided it would just whip up another show to fill that void.)

Kim Yoon-hye will have a heartfelt loveline with Lee Joon’s lead character, while also becoming entangled in a love triangle with his best friend, alongside whom the hero went to police academy. Aw, but will the best buddy know he’s a vampire, or will that be a secret that comes between them? Will they maintain their friendship through the love angst, or turn to rivals? I’m much more interested in Lee Joon as an actor than Kim Yoon-hye, but we’ll have to see who gets cast as the third leg of that triangle. Oh Jung-se (The Lover) was previously cast as the hero’s sunbae and loyal friend with no romantic game, and Oh Se-young (Trot Lovers) will join the gang at the P.I.’s office.

So far, the drama has my interest — I’d rather have a Vampire Prosecutor 3, but if that’s never gonna happen, I’m curious to see how OCN handles a similar-but-different show — but I’m also approaching with caution, given the sparse filmography of the PD and writer team. Director Kim Ga-ram has one drama listed, as the second director on JTBC’s daily melodrama Thorn Flower from 2013, while writer Yoo Young-sun actually has more experience directing films than writing dramas; he was the director of horror film The Wicked, while this will be his first drama.

Vampire Detective will be a fully pre-produced drama to air in the first half of next year, though an airdate has yet to be set.

I'm pretty sure the girl from Trot Lovers is Lee Se-young, not Oh Se-young! Super annoying character, but I don't want to write off the actress. This drama does sound interesting....

Yeah, this sort of think is easier on American TV, where you expect every second lead to be a complete stranger. Until someone reminds you that he or she was in a toothpaste commercial or slasher flick or something.

Anyone, looks like this is her first important "hero's girlfriend" role. She is twenty five while looking about thirteen . . . a big break, and good luck to her, then.

Indeed my curiosity to Vampire Prosecutor haven't done yet

Still far away until OCN grant our wish (or maybe they never intend to do it whether VP don't make money as other drama) sigh ?

But i give it a try to this similar-but-different show

Another vampire themed show?

Is there a quota system that script writers are required to follow?

I get the feeling script writers have to pick plot lines out of a hat.

I don't mind them just starting a new series if it looks like VP next season is impossible. If it's the same production team and/or writers, I'm sure anything they make will hook us.

Also, petition to cast Song Jae Rim as the Big Bad Vampire. Because Mo Il Hwa needs to be reborn.

There was a teensy mistake in this article. Yoo Young-sun both wrote and directed the Wicked which got decent reviews.

I remember seeing her in Flower Boys Next Door and I wondered what happened to her. Hope she makes a bigger splash with this drama than her previous ones.

After his glorious turn in Grapevine, I'll be watching for Lee Joon....

Now that I've been forced to agree that no season 3 of Vampire Prosecutor is coming, could we just get Yeon Jung-hoon a part in which he wears a little eyeliner, has dark conflicting secrets and broods mysteriously?

Uhhhhhhh...why?! I'm so over the vampire trend. And adding her to the list is turning me off even more. Her acting is cringeworthy. Not impressed with the news at all. :/

Among an industry of lovely looking people, she's always stood out for me as exceptionally lovely. Can't really comment on her acting or charm, though. Hope it's good!
