OCN’s Vampire Detective drinks, dodges, and sheds blood

Sleek and sexy, I like. Vampire Detective looks like a good ol’ time, and while I’m still sad that we haven’t gotten a Vampire Prosecutor 3 yet (or ever?), this seems like it’ll fill the void nicely, with Lee Joon (Heard It Through the Grapevine) stepping into the lead role of an investigator who also happens to be a vampire. This drama doesn’t have any narrative ties to Prosecutor, but since it comes to us from the same producer (PD Lee Seung-hoon), I’m looking forward to the same brand of cheeky, action-packed, stylishly bloody entertainment.

Lee Joon’s character is a private investigator with a prickly temperament; he graduated from police academy, but due to an unfortunate accident that befell him, he turns private eye instead. He’s described as becoming a vampire suddenly, and while I don’t suppose anybody becomes a vampire slowly, I take it to mean we’re dealing with a newer vamp, not one who’s been brooding for centuries. He’ll work to solve the cases that drop into his lap via his varied clientele, while also delving into the mystery of his own past.

In the first teaser above, Lee Chung-ah shows up at his door one day looking every bit the part of the classic noir femme fatale, asking for help. That leads our hero and his team (Oh Jung-se, Lee Se-young) to an abandoned warehouse, blood-splattered walls, and presumably lots of danger. The teaser closes on what seems to be his catchphrase for the show: “Just sucking blood is no fun.” Lee Chung-ah’s character poster below bears the tagline: “You’ll find out soon enough.”

In the second clip, the two sidekicks are walking along when they’re interrupted by a tough-looking thug. Oh Jung-se snarls, “What kind of bastard—” and then realizes how big the other guy is and quickly adopts a respectful attitude, calling the guy “teacher.” Lee Se-young, meanwhile, just strolls right up and kicks the guy down and warns him not to mess around. I’m going to love Oh Jung-se being a wimp (he’s so good at it!), and Lee Se-young being tough. His character poster reads, “Just have faith and leave it to me!” Hers says, “Attacking first is the answer.”

The last clip shows Lee Joon in a room full of blood containers, dodging the ones that come flying at him, and closes on his line, “Just sucking blood is no fun.”

Vampire Detective premieres on March 27 and airs as a Sunday-night drama on OCN.

Hmmm I'm not feeling this drama so far. The individual posters seem kind of retro with those fonts and colour scheme, which is not my style, but I will give episode 1 a try for its vampire theme though.

ps: And yes, I wish for a Vampire Prosecutor 3 too.

This actually looks sorta interesting....though I wonder if the two worlds will collide and we'll get a little cameo from Yeon Jung Hoon...

Vampire Detective meets Vampire Prosecutor and together they rid the world of evil with their Vampire ways....YAS.

I forgot how Vampire Prosecutor ended but it would be awesome if the two series collided for Vampire Prosecutor 3. Like what if the forces (I honestly forgot lol) that made Yeon JungHoon a vampire also made LeeJoon a vampire?

That would be awesome :)

I'd be so here for a Vampire Lawyer!! I dunno why that sounds so fun but it does. I imagine the character just seducing info out of everyone for each case, LOL.

Lee Chung Ah looks amazing. I had no idea she was going to be in this and it was such a pleasant surprise. She seems to be more active lately; I'm glad.

Loving the posters and Lee Joon looks every bit a vampire, he's all angles and charisma. I like the amber eyes as well.

Should be fun!

OMG Lee Joon look really cool with his cynical smile, drop dead handsome face and what actually amazes me more is he doing all his action scenes in Vampire Detective without using a stuntman at all, bravo Lee Joon!!!!
Ps: I don't mind if we didn't get Vampire Prosecutor 3 at all, I can seem to forget it after seeing all of this candy eyes, Lee Joon is hot and Min Taeyeon prosecutor too but my heart falls more toward this chic vampire Lee Joon!

There was one...I haven't seen it—but it was Vampire Flower, a web-series? It was short too according Drama List. There is also a 3 season sitcom called Hello, Franceska which seems like Korea's answer to The Addams Family.

Yes! It's so addictive and can be pretty hilarious at times. The cast chemistry is really strong and it's very stylish.

I haven't watched VP, but I'm curious about this one.

The first two teasers are cool (especially the first one), but the last one was too much.

I AM gonna check this drama out because it looks pretty good and i love case solving dramas which many people done seem to like sadly! Also can i just say Lee Chung Ah looks......just wow! She looks so good and im so jealous! I have only seen her in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and it is still one of my favourite dramas in the feel-good drama category (Yes i have vategories for my favourite drama......yes im a weirdo!) So i loved her in that and i dont think i need to say anything about lee joon, lee se young or oh jung se! I freaking love the whole cast so it doesnt make sense if i dont watch this drama! Looking forward to it!
