Shin Jae-ha, Jeon Hyo-sung join SBS thriller Wanted

I hope this is the last round of casting announcements for SBS’s upcoming thriller drama Wanted, not because I don’t want a nice big cast, but because they’re running out of lead time before the premiere, which is now less than a month away. We’ve got a few more additions to the supporting cast in Shin Jae-ha (Memory, Page Turner), who’ll play a cop, and idol Jeon Hyo-sung (Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong), who’s been cast to play a genius hacker.

The new Wednesday-Thursday series stars Kim Ah-joong (Punch) as a top film actress whose son gets kidnapped on the day she’s planning to announce her retirement from showbiz. Following the kidnapper’s demands, she goes on live television and carries out a series of missions in order to get her son back.

Uhm Tae-woong (Valid Love) plays a television producer and the heroine’s first love who helps her get on a live broadcast to save her child. Ji Hyun-woo (Awl) co-stars as a dogged detective who becomes obsessed with tracking down the kidnapper, and Park Hyo-joo (Twenty Again) plays a freelance TV writer who helps keep the broadcast afloat.

Up-and-comer Shin Jae-ha has been cast as a young detective who works alongside Ji Hyun-woo in the violent crimes division. That makes me doubly excited for the casting, because I really like Shin Jae-ha and think he should get bigger roles, and Ji Hyun-woo blew me away with his last drama. Together, they’re going to keep the police side of things verrry interesting.

I know less about Jeon Hyo-sung, who was in both seasons of OCN’s supernatural thriller Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong as a schoolgirl ghost, but her character sounds interesting: She’s been cast as an assistant director on a television show, who in her youth won a contest as a teenage hacker. I’m sure that’ll come in mighty handy when they’re trying to track down a kidnapper at large.

Wanted is slated to follow Entertainer on Wednesdays and Thursdays starting June 22.

Yay for Shin Jae Ha! I've been wanting to see more of him. I thought he was real promising in Page Turner. Idk why his name doesn't get thrown around like Ji Soo's. Maybe if he had had something like Sassy Go Go or Angry Mom beforehand.

Jeon Hyo-sung is not a good actress, but she was watchable and even funny at times as the petty bitch second lead in "My Dear Cat," who somehow strikes me as natural. (Her lipstick also matches her gums in that drama.)

That being said... Jeon Hyo-sung as a hacker???
