Prosecutors and detective fit right in with Bad Guys in City of Evil

This feels so epic, and my attempts to tamp down my expectations for this show are failing miserably. To follow up on the character teasers that came out for Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase) and Ji-soo (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon), upcoming OCN crime thriller Bad Guys: City of Evil has released three new ones for the rest of the motley crew that’ll be the central focus of the show. And instead of ex-cons, we’ve got two prosecutors and the most unfit detective I’ve ever seen, in Park Joong-hoon (My Dear Desperado), Kim Mu-yeol (My Beautiful Bride), and Yang Ik-joon (Mystery Queen).

First, we have genius prosecutor Kim Mu-yeol, who we see at his desk, in the midst of making some kind of decision with a USB in hand. Park Joon-hoon narrates that Kim Mu-yeol’s character went to a no-name college in the hicks, with no influential family members to help advance his career: “This bastard with no connections has just one thing, his head on his shoulders.” Kim Mu-yeol finally comes to a decision and switches out the USB with one in his drawer. He’s described as an expert strategist, and if he sets his mind to it, “He can turn lies into truth.”

Yang Ik-joon’s detective character is of a rather different breed of law enforcement, and I can see him being a total wild card in the field. The character teaser begins with him randomly smoking in an empty bathtub, in what looks like an abandoned apartment. Park Joong-hoon gives a laundry list of the detective’s crimes, from gambling to drugs to taking bribes. He drily observes that, “He doesn’t have a purpose to living. I think he just lives ‘cause he was born.” I mean, whoa at those close-up shots at his crazy faces. We should be rooting for him, right?

And then, last but certainly not least, is Park Joong-hoon, who is apparently playing the equivalent of Kim Sang-joon’s role in the original series. The prosecutor attempts to bring in a suspect, played by Kim Hong-pa (Suspicious Partner), who says, “I won’t go down so easily. There are promises to collect on.” This is precisely the type of corruption that has Park Joong-hoon disillusioned with the system: “Law? Justice? Order? I won’t catch you using them.” It’s not exactly a hero walk, but I got chills seeing the four “bad guys” and their leader walking down the corridor lined with men in handcuffs. The teaser ends with Park Joong-hoon narrating, “I will drag down those high-up bastards into the gutter.” Love it.

Bad Guys: City of Evil will premiere next month on OCN.

Wow, you could've spent the amount of time reading all this just to post this irrelevant comment to read something that did interest you, but sure, go off, I guess.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure it is. He said he felt bad that his seniors would have to work around his schedule so he pulled out

Thank you.
Felt bad he had to pullout. This wouldve been a great project for him before he had to enlist.

SO KEEN FOR THIS. I love a great ensemble cast, especially of great actors who are not the usual leads but are true scene stealers and are generally underrated (aka this whole cast?!)

Joo jin-mo and Kim Mu-yeol have established themselves, some drama watchers /newbies might not really known them. Yang Ik-june also an established actor and film director, although he might not known as a leading man. We can say most of them except Ji-soo are well established veteran actors, it is just they are not really appear a lot in drama. Underrated might not really the best way to define them, maybe under appreciated especially among drama audiences / international fans. I'm not sure if Ji-soo is underrated either.

Still shocked that Park Joong hoon is doing this. It’s always interesting when film stars jump back to TV.

Ikr? I'm like, what are you doing in dramaland Park Joon-hoon? He's been MIA from films for a while now. This is an upgrade from Kim Sang-Joong whom I adore as an actor.
That goes for Yang Ik-june too. He freaking wrote,direct and star in his own movie "Breathless" etc. So much talent!
Then we have our talented and Beautiful banker Kim Mu-yeol who's not a stranger to this genre and who one man his last OCN drama.
I'm excited for the solid and reliable Kim Hong-pa too.

Leave it to Studio Dragon to assemble these talented cast who could do crime thrillers in their sleep.

Brilliant cast and moreover, as said above, not overly used or promoted actors, so it has a fresh vibe.
