Subway cop team prepares to Catch the Ghost in upcoming tvN drama
Moon Geun-young (Glass Garden) and Kim Sun-ho (Welcome to Waikiki 2) show different aspects of their respective characters in the newly released stills of their drama Catch the Ghost. When a serial killer nicknamed the “Subway Ghost” arises in the depths of the Seoul subway system, rule-abiding Kim Sun-ho, a cop squad leader, must team up with the instinct-driven Moon Geun-young, a rookie straight out of academy, to take the killer down.
It looks like we should prepare for a comedic cop procedural that can shine a light on Korean subway crimes like pickpocketing and unlawful filming, which has not been explored in-depth by dramas yet. Kim Sun-ho’s character graduated at the top of his class in academy, but he’s so old-fashioned and stubborn about the rules that it leads to only the most conservative approaches being taken and zero flexibility. When he runs into Moon Geun-young’s character, who is the complete opposite, it leads to absolute chaotic hilarity.
Interestingly, Moon Geun-young’s character’s name is Yoo-ryung which also translates to ghost in Korean. She’s an energetic gal who does everything with passion. Moon Geun-young said that as a result, her character laughs and cries easily; is quick to anger, but also quick to forgive. In other words, she’s all over the place.
On the other hand, Kim Sun-ho said about his character, “During the drama, Go Ji-suk [Kim Sun-ho’s character name] has a secret reason he likes abiding by the rules, and wants to just follow society’s cold dictates. However, because of his warmheartedness, he can’t even do that easily. When he meets Yoo-ryung, that Go Ji-suk goes through highs and lows in various episodes and he changes into a more charismatic version of himself.”
tvN’s Monday-Tuesday drama Catch the Ghost, directed by Shin Yoon-seob, and co-written by So Won and Lee Young-joo, will begin airing on October 21. ]
