New character posters for tvN’s When the Devil Calls Your Name
New character posters have been released for tvN’s upcoming When the Devil Calls Your Name, featuring actors Jung Kyung-ho (Life on Mars), Park Sung-woong (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky), Lee Seol (Bad Detective), and Lee El (Matrimonial Chaos).
The fantasy comedy is centered around Jung Kyung-ho’s character, a star composer by the name of Ha Rib. The price he paid for his fame was steep– he literally sold off his soul in a deal with the devil. However, as the contract’s end date approaches, Ha Rib tries to re-negotiate the terms and starts a dangerous game in order to keep his life and soul. As the story unfolds, he discovers that his success was actually stolen. The devil had traded his life with the life of a talented young musician (played by Lee Seol). And as he tries to restore this musician’s life, as well as the lives of everyone around them, Ha Rib starts to learn life’s true value.
The newly released posters share a moody tone and give us a glimpse of each character’s personality. In Jung Kyung-ho’s poster, he looks at the camera defiantly. The caption reads, “My talent is mine, my wealth is mine, and my soul is mine as well!”
Park Sung-woong plays beloved top star Mo Tae-gang who appears to be a gentle and well-liked man. However, his body is possessed by the devil. He has a dark look on his face in his poster and behind him is a swirl of dark smoke that form a devil-like face. The caption on his poster reads, “The devil lives off of humankind’s suffering. Why would he sell your soul?”
Lee Seol plays the role of singer-songwriter Kim Yi-kyung. She’s passionate about being a musician, but her life has been an endless stream of bad luck, what with her songs getting stolen by the devil and Ha Rib. However, one day Ha Rib appears in her life and they work together to make her music known to the world. In her poster, she stands quietly resolute and her caption reads, “They’re mine, I’m telling you they’re not Ha Rib’s songs, they’re my songs!”
Lee El plays the character of Ji Seo-young, the woman who loves the devil. Years ago, she was previously in a relationship with Mo Tae-gang, and she never fully got over him. Described as chic and personable, she’s also one of the rare few who can handle dealing with the sensitive Ha Rib. In her character poster, she looks at the camera with an unreadable expression. And the caption says, “Ex-boyfriend, I hate to admit it but you still look sexy!”
Directing for tvN’s upcoming fantasy drama is PD Min Jin-ki (Circle) and writer Noh Hye-young (Come Back, Ajusshi) will be penning the scripts.
tvN’s When the Devil Calls Your Name is currently set to premiere at the end of July, on July 31.
