First look at Jung Kyung-ho, Park Sung-woong in tvN fantasy comedy
Finally! I feel like it’s been forever since we’ve had any news of tvN’s When the Devil Calls Your Name, so it’s nice to know that the drama reunion of the best buddy cop duo in recent drama history, a.k.a. Life on Mars’ Jung Kyung-ho and Park Sung-woong, has been busy behind the scenes. And can I just say how excited I am that the reports are now labeling the show as a fantasy comedy? Both actors have great comic timing, and I can’t wait for them to play off each other on screen.
The first stills are out for the pair, who won’t be playing colleagues this time around, but are in a contractual relationship. And not really the kind you usually find in dramas: Jung Kyung-ho plays a star composer whose success directly stems from a deal with the devil, played by Park Sung-woong. Their contract is about to expire, though, and in a bid to keep his soul, which was the price he paid for his enormous success, Jung Kyung-ho initiates a dangerous, life-risking game.
Though I’m a little sad to hear that Jung Kyung-ho and Park Sung-woong’s characters won’t be on the same side (that we know of), I’m sure that the two will somehow create bromance where there shouldn’t be any. And since the show is billed as a comedy, though there are literally life-and-death stakes at play, I’m looking forward to all the fun the two will surely have as a troublesome human client who is essentially trying to dine and dash, and the demon just trying to collect the soul he’s been promised. Let the bickering, cat-and-mouse game commence!
When the Devil Calls Your Name will air in tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday slot, and premiere on July 31.
