Chun Jung-myung and Kim So-hyun pair up for OCN thriller
I know what you’re thinking: He could be her father! Technically, I don’t know whether he’s going to play her love interest, her dad, a killer, or a cop, but in any case Chun Jung-myung (Queen of the Night) and Kim So-hyun (Suspicious Housekeeper) are in talks to play the leads in cable network OCN’s newest thriller Crying Game, formerly called Ten Days Ago. I’m hoping that the show won’t try to sweep their nineteen-year age difference under the rug; I mean, I know Chun Jung-myung’s a babyface, but the girl is still in high school.
Chun Jung-myung has been attached to the project for a while, and Kim So-hyun is reportedly considering. The drama will be about a crime with ten days left before the statute of limitations on it runs out — someone is desperate to keep that crime hidden, and someone else is desperate to uncover the truth. So far we’re not told who’s who, just that these two actors are up for the leading roles. Who knows, maybe they’ll play mortal enemies. The drama is described as a thriller about the string of consequences a man faces as a result of a crime he committed fifteen years ago.
It’ll be a 10-episode series, and comes from PD Kim Yong-kyun of the horror movie The Webtoon and writer Ahn Young-soo who worked on Itaewon Murder Case. The drama has been in development for the better part of a year, but hopefully the fact that Chun Jung-myung has stuck with it all this time means something good. I do really like both actors and am happy to see Kim So-hyun playing more and more roles that aren’t someone else’s childhood backstory. Maybe we’ll get a great spine-tingling game of cat-and-mouse.
OCN is currently airing the forensic procedural God’s Quiz 4, and is planning to follow that with a series called Bad Boys. That puts Crying Game at the end of the year or even early next year.
