Lee Sang-yoon offered profiler lead in Hello Monster
Ha Woo-jin—I mean, Lee Sang-yoon may be stepping into the lead’s shoes for Hello Monster, the KBS drama that previously extended an offer to Lee Jin-wook (who turned it down) and is also considering (but hasn’t confirmed) Jang Nara, Lee Chun-hee, Choi Won-young, Park Bo-gum, and Exo’s D.O. That’s a lotta people to be on the fence about, but it could just be that they’re slow to make official announcements.
This is the drama whose description never fails to confound me, though it’s odd enough to make me want to tune in just to see what they mean (so score one for them?): A criminal profiler and the woman who is stalking him, who happens to be a cop, work together to solve crimes. They’ll be on the same detective team (alongside a number of the other co-stars) and bicker as they fall in love… I’m just not really sure where the stalking thing comes in. But the drama’s being touted as a thriller with rom-com elements… or maybe it’s a rom-com with thriller elements… so I expect some lightheartedness amidst the serious crime cases.
The role Lee Sang-yoon is considering is the police profiler with keen insight into criminal psychology, which doesn’t sound that far off from the genius psychoanalyst skills he showcased in Liar Game. But really, anything that reminds me of him in Liar Game is a plus, and Lee Sang-yoon should basically always do dramas where he broods, never smiles, and is so freakishly smart as to be blazingly hot. Really, he should just do sequels to Liar Game forevermore.
Hello Monster will be a Monday-Tuesday drama on KBS, following Who Are You – School 2015, which follows the currently airing Blood.
