Bad Guys: City of Evil shows character insights in new posters
Woot woot—only a month left to go! Character and group posters have been released for the OCN’s spinoff series Bad Guys: City of Evil. The one above shows our formidable team posing threateningly, while the caption says: “If you want to live, leave!” The main premise of this drama is the same as the original: a partnership between law enforcement and criminals forms in order to catch even worse baddies. However, we do have an exciting new cast of characters, and since I loved the original season, my fingers are crossed that this one will be just as successful!
On the police force front, Park Joong-hoon (My Dear Desperado) heads the team, with Kim Mu-yeol (My Beautiful Bride) as his geeenius rookie prosecutor and Yang Ik-joon (Mystery Queen) as his hotheaded impulsive detective. On Park Joong-hoon’s two character posters, he threatens “Don’t be lenient in any situation. Just beat and catch them all!” But it looks like Kim Mu-yeol might be the one having a bit of a situation. He seems like he’s between a rock and a hard place as he desperately pleads “I… don’t think I can run anymore. I have nowhere else to go.” Yang Ik-joon is his characteristic badass crazy self in his posters: “This bastard is for real. A real lunatic. He’s just living because he was born.”
Meanwhile our two main bad guys look tough—Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase) plays a former good-for-nothing gangster who is supposed to have reformed his ways and works at a fish restaurant stall at the local market, and Ji-soo (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon) plays the innocent but willingly framed convict with only revenge on his mind. Joo Jin-mo says he’s reformed, but that steely glint in his eyes belies his statement as he faces down the threatening men who surround him: “I want to live as a good man, but the world won’t let me.”
To be honest, I’m most excited about Ji-soo’s return. My puppy looks the most manly I’ve seen him yet, and I’m looking forward to seeing him in a darker, more adult character (after playing lovable scamps in Angry Mom and Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo). In his poster, Ji-soo scowls toward camera, warning, “Don’t try to stop me. Or you’ll get hurt.”
Action-noir drama Bad Guys: City of Evil will be broadcasting on OCN Saturdays and Sundays, starting December 16.
