Vampire Detective: To suck or not to suck

Please don’t suck! The first teaser for OCN’s new Sunday night thriller Vampire Detective is a bit more literal about the question, and puts our titular hero in a dilemma over whether or not to suck blood. Um, does he really have a choice in the matter? I thought that bloodlust was one of those unquenchable things that just comes with the territory.

The new series from OCN stars Lee Joon (Heard It Through the Grapevine) as a prickly ex-cop who suffered a major setback on the job that left him scarred. He went on to set up a private investigation agency after leaving the force, and one day suddenly becomes a vampire. The drama is about him taking on a variety of cases for his clients while digging into his own past. If the premise sounds familiar, that’s because it is — the show comes from one of the producers of Vampire Prosecutor, which had two successful seasons on OCN.

Oh Jung-se (The Lover) plays a trusted sunbae who works alongside Lee Joon at their P.I. offices, and sticks by his side even when Lee Joon turns into a vampire. He’s an innocent character who’s completely inexperienced when it comes to love. Lee Se-young (Trot Lovers) is the last member of the team, a young woman with the skills of a con artist who unexpectedly comes to work for them after an incident brings them together.

The supporting cast also includes Lee Chung-ah (Riders: Catch Tomorrow) as a mysterious woman in Lee Joon’s life; Jo Bok-rae (Yong-pal) as Lee Joon’s old partner who vanishes during an undercover operation; Kim Yoon-hye (Flower Boy Next Door) as a love interest for the hero who’s also involved in a triangle with Lee Joon’s ex-partner; Kim Ki-moo (D-Day) as a doctor who runs a tattoo parlor and does illegal surgeries in the back; and Ahn Se-ha (She Was Pretty) as a detective who’s friends with Oh Jung-se’s character.

The teaser has Lee Se-young and Oh Jung-se taking turns whispering into Lee Joon’s ear: “Suck. Don’t suck. You can just suck a little. You can’t suck! Just suck. Stop sucking. Suck. Endure. Don’t suck. Suck.” In the end he drinks the blood anyway (duh, he’s a vampire!) and declares, “It’s no fun if I only suck blood!” Okay, you can suck literally, just not figuratively.

Vampire Detective premieres Sunday, March 27 on OCN.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the title combining roman alphabets and hangul?

Woah, I just noticed that! Yeah, I see the V instead of the ㅂ. Cool.

Maybe it'll encourage Koreans to start pronouncing the letter V as a proper V instead of B (ㅂ) ;)

I didn't even see that, you have a great eye for detail! I can't remember ever seeing Hangul combined with another alphabet like that before, pretty cool to use it for the drama title.

Ugh I love Lee Se Young. I haven't seen her in anything since Trot Lovers, and that drama... wasn't great for her. She's a promising actor like Lee Sung Kyung, so I hope to see more of her.

Excited to watch the show from the teaser but why do the women's dye jobs look trashy and don't match the skin tone. Tacky!

-___- Why can't they just do Vampire Prosecutor instead of a Vampire Prosecutor rip-off?? (I know why, *sigh*)

Right? Makes me wonder what happened. Was there some bad blood (no pun intended) or they just decided to end it there. Then what was that cliffhanger of an ending?! Darn it. I really love that show :(

Cause Yeon Joong Heon maybe don't want to accept any drama as Han Ga In is pregnant with their first baby after 10 years of being married. He wants to be with her wife until she give birth. That's what I'm thinking I'm sure mr. vampire prosecutor will come back again. He is the best vampire in kdramaland :D

Yep, I expect they just don't have all the actors available, possibly the producers/writers too. Dramaland doesn't lend itself to lots of seasons and they don't typically contract for more than one run at a time, so they have to wait for everyone to be open. It might never happen at this point.

With all respect to the cast and crew, Vampire Detective definitely doesn't seem as nuanced or as well-written as Vampire Prosecutor. Of course there is much room to prove me wrong, especially being that it's a series on OCN, but this won't be making it to my list of dramas to watch.

If you don't watch it first, how do you know this series may prove you wrong? Why not give it a try? :)

Don't like Lee Joon so will be skipping. Also the premise and concept look boring. Yawn. Next.

Well, nowadays we can find many idol-actors are as good as him. Siwan, Hyung Sik, D.O. etc

Him, Siwon sure. The rest I'd beg to differ

I'm not in love with the premise, but Lee Joon was creepy as anything in Gap Dong; the best part of the drama by far. He is the only reason I am tempted to give it a go; he might make a great vampire if they don't go the Twilight route.

I wonder why there are so many vampires in Korea.

Far more than in Japan.

Perhaps it is the pure Korean blood?

Interesting question because if they were real and like animals that prefer certain environments, vampires are in-land creatures that like mountain areas.

Can the Vampire Detective collaborate with the Vampire Prosecutor?

Three years ago and you'd never find me watching something like Vampire Detective. But now that I've fallen down the black hole of kdramaland, I'll give anything a try once. Lee Joon has emerged as a steady star both in the music and acting world and I'm a hardcore fan. He practically seemed vampire-like in Gap Dong. A vampire role is a natural with his pale, otherworldly looks and dangerous smile. Plus fangs ~ that's downright biting.
