The baddies convene for first teaser of Bad Guys: City of Evil
OCN, home to some of dramaland’s grittiest crime dramas, has posted updates on its upcoming spinoff series Bad Guys: City of Evil with a new 15-second teaser clip and stills, giving us our first look at our baddies in action.
Like the original, this spinoff is centered around a group of criminals, forced together to track down even worse villains. At the head of our team, we have Park Joong-hoon (My Dear Desperado), who plays a prosecutor willing to fight dirty to capture his targets. He’ll be aided by rookie prosecutor Kim Mu-yeol (My Beautiful Bride), who is clueless at the beginning but begins to understand the dark underbelly of crime as he works with these bad guys to catch others.
Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase) plays a former violent mobster who quit after a tragic incident, who has carried this heavy hidden burden of his past ever since. And whoa, this may be the first time I’ve seen Yang Ik-joon (Mystery Queen) playing a “good guy.” Well we’ll see how good he is as the fierce provincial investigator who can turn crazy in the blink of an eye during the pursuit of his cases.
The short clip teases: “The number one sequel that viewers have been waiting for… a new world from the creators of Bad Guys.” A long train of police cars line the streets, and Park Joong-hoon gives an order. A voiceover says: “Law? Justice? Why is that necessary?” In a brief flash, we see Joo Jin-mo sitting on the curb and Kim Mu-yeol escaping in a car. Gangsters swarm with wooden bats left and right, fighting in mass chaos. Through bloodied teeth, Detective Yang Ik-joon yells, “Escape if you can, you bastards!”
Okay, that wasn’t the most informative teaser, but at least we got to see some of the characters after months of almost no promo. The one person I’ve been waiting for, however, wasn’t in the teaser. Ji-soo (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon), where are you? His character is nicknamed the “hyung support” because despite not committing a crime, he goes to prison for his hyung. Whether there’s an actual blood relationship or whether he takes for fall for other reasons, the synopsis doesn’t clarify. But I’m so ready to wash his bland, scowling Strong Woman Do Bong-soon character out of my mind, this drama can’t come fast enough.
OCN’s crime noir drama Bad Guys: City of Evil is scheduled to begin starting this December.
