Murderer, mobster, and cop cross paths in tvN drama Psychopath Diary

Upcoming comedic thriller Psychopath Diary has released a new sets of stills, giving us a peek at the main cast of characters. In a case of mistaken identities, a pushover of a man, played by Yoon Shi-yoon (Nokdu Flower), falls prey to amnesia. When he wakes up to find he’s in possession of a diary that records several murders, he begins to believe that he’s the perpetrator.

Meanwhile, the real psychopath and owner of the diary is played by Park Sung-hoon (Justice), who is the director of the stock trading firm where Yoon Shi-yoon is employed. He’s shown in the stills wearing a dark raincoat, with body language clearly indicating that he has something to hide.

Jung In-sun (My Secret Terrius) plays the passionate neighborhood policewoman. At one point, she was a legendary investigator, but after seeing her father’s police career fall apart she became a strict realist who doesn’t chase her dreams. She accidentally causes Yoon Shi-yoon to lose his memory, and in the end, their joint pursuit of the murderer helps her regain passion for criminal investigations again.

Finally, Heo Sung-tae (Watcher) is shown in the other stills, crouching behind some boxes. He plays the gangster who lives above Yoon Shi-yoon’s apartment The actor is usually cast as dark characters, and although he looks like a threatening mobster, his character’s actually a big coward who’s easily frightened.

Wednesday-Thursday tvN drama Psychopath Diary will begin airing this November.

Iโ€™m still trying to wrap my head around what โ€œcomedic thrillerโ€ means. ๐Ÿค” Itโ€™s like an oxymoron to me. The only such drama I can think of is NAKED FIREMAN, which coincidentally starred Jung In-sun too. But it wasnโ€™t all funny.

Oh right. I guess so, though Iโ€™m not watching it precisely because of the serial killer angle.

By the way, are we related? Iโ€™m a stuffed pig rabbit and youโ€™re a rabbit with a carrot ๐Ÿ˜‚

@wishfultoki That's right. In every Cinderella story, there needs to be the evil step sister. I guess I can be your (evil) step sister. ๐Ÿ˜

I just started KBS's Justice where Park Sunghoon's character is a psychopath/serial killer, then now in this new drama he's another psychopath again?! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

It will be interesting to watch Heo Sungtae do comedy. What a change from the usual villain roles he get. ๐Ÿ˜€

@llljr Jrr,

You can say that again! Heo Sung-tae's character in YOUR HONOR was so horrid that I welcome the chance to see the actor overwrite that memory. He did a great job of playing a predatory sleazoid prosecutor. Oy!

A cowardly lion would be a big improvement. ;-)

Serial killer storylines usually scare me, but this has so much potential to be funny.

@bcampbell1662 Beverly,
I'm still recovering from NOKDU FLOWER, so I hope they tone down the serial killer angle. Isn't one-off homicide bad enough to suffice???

Thanks for the update on PSYCHOPATH DIARY, @tineybeanie. I enjoyed Jung In-sun's turn in TERIUS BEHIND ME, although a lot of it had to do with her two scene-stealing kiddos. Maybe they can arrange for a certain secret agent to cameo? ;-)

I wish they didn't reveal so early that Yoon si Yoon isn't the real psychopath. Wouldn't it better to make your audience suspect that maybe he really is the psychopath? then we can all discover the truth later together with the protagonist
