Taecyeon, Lee Yeon-hee sign onto supernatural-thriller crime drama

Kyaaah! Taecyeon (Rescue Me) is back from the army, and ready for work! It’s just been announced that 2PM’s Taecyeon and Lee Yeon-hee (Package) will be co-starring in upcoming MBC miniseries The Game: Towards Zero. It’s a drama about a clairvoyant who can see the moment before someone’s death and a violent crimes investigator who team up to solve a suspicious serial murder case and begin to learn a shocking hidden secret.

Taecyeon will be playing the part of the clairvoyant who can see the moment before people’s deaths when he looks into their eyes. Although having this ability could be depressing for anyone, Taecyeon’s character is optimistic and tries to do his best within the fate decided for him. He comes off as an intelligent seer.

Lee Yeon-hee will be playing the other half of the duo, the cold and charismatic police investigator. She lost her father when she was young, and has emotional scars dating back to her childhood due to his death.

I’m excited because I’ve seen Lee Yeon-hee and Taecyeon act together before in rom-com movie Marriage Blue. They played a long-time couple who seem picture perfect on the outside, and the movie gave me a really bad case of second lead syndrome. So it’ll be interesting to see these two actors in a completely different genre, pursuing murder instead of marriage.

MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama The Game: Towards Zero, directed by Jang Joon-ho (Time) and written by Lee Ji-hyo (King of Dramas), will begin next January.

I've read shade about his acting, but I think he's getting better. During "Bring it ghosts" I never felt like, "this is Taecyeon acting a part" like I did in his earlier drama, Dream High. I am looking forward to this.

I don't know him as a singer so don't have that to prejudice me for good or bad. His acting never drew attention to itself as acting in Bring it on Ghost, just an enjoyable role done well. I will check this out.

@wag-a-muffin I agree about Bring it on Ghosts as it was the first time I felt Taecyeon's acting was good and I attributed that to the great chemistry with Kim So-hyun. Although she's younger, she is a more experienced actor and I feel she helped Taecyeon relax and just fall into the role he was playing. They seemed to have such fun making that drama.

The premise sounds a lot like The Guest minus the priest and demon. I wish I could see Taecyeon on my screen earlier!!! January is too far away.

Captain Korea is back.... :)

PS: it's sometimes funny to see the facts where Taecyeon was a chef in "Marriage Blue" and he's good at cooking in "Let's Fight Ghost", where in fact, in "Three Meals A Day", he barely can cook, LoL.

What a bad idea...

I really liked Lee Yeon Hee in The Package and Miss Korea but the both drama had a great casting to help her.

Taecyeon is not charismatic as an actor and his costars outshine him... He should take second lead role.

I understand the criticisms on LYH's acting and I've seen her in really bad dramas but girlfriend will forever be in my good graces because of Miss Korea. She was just so good in it and embodied the role really well. Taecyeon, on the other hand, is an actor that I'm not too enamored with, as I always found his acting cringey. Dream High was the only drama of his that I was able to finish.

Eh, I might or might not be part of the minority here, but I'm not much of a fan of Taecyeon's acting. On the other hand though, I do like the idea of the premise even though the characters' personalities have been used before in dramaland. Well, break a leg you peeps!

Not a big fan of Taecyeon but I do admit that he did do a good job in Rescue Me. I don't know if it was because of an excellent director (everyone did a great job in that drama) or if he is improving as an actor. Hopefully it's the latter!

Love all the images. They look adorable together.
