Psychopath Diary casts Yoon Shi-yoon, Jung In-sun
Yoon Shi-yoon, Jung In-sun, Park Sung-hoon
Get ready to explore the mind of a killer in Psychopath Diary! This tvN drama recently secured its main lineup, and it looks very promising: Yoon Shi-yoon (Nokdu Flower), Jung In-sun (My Secret Terrius), and Park Sung-hoon (Justice).
Psychopath Diaries begins with a bang—Yoon Shi-yoon, who plays a hapless timid guy, witnesses the scene of a murder. Whilst running away, he gets into a car accident with Jung In-sun, who plays a neighborhood police officer. The accident causes Yoon Shi-yoon to lose his memories, and he wakes up not knowing who he is. The only clue seems to be a diary of murder that was clenched in his grasp.
Under the delusion that he’s the owner of the diary, Yoon Shi-yoon begins to believe that he’s a psychopathic serial killer. Meanwhile, the real killer, played by Park Sung-hoon, grows increasingly nervous that the evidence of his crimes may fall into the wrong (or maybe it’s right?) hands.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Yoon Shi-yoon goes from pushover clerk at a trading firm to predatorial would-be psychopath. I’m also curious to see how that would change his interactions with Park Sung-hoon’s character who is the director of the trading firm.
Furthermore, if My Secret Terrius is any indication, Jung In-sun will make a great spunky cop. She has a great backstory too: she followed her dad’s footsteps to become a police officer, but becomes disillusioned when he falls to disgrace for a momentary mistake. From then on, she lives strictly in the realm of practicality and realism, until she meets Yoon Shi-yoon and begins to investigate this unfolding murder case.
Upcoming Tuesday-Thursday tvN drama Psychopath Diary, PD Lee Jong-jae (100 Days My Prince) and Ryu Yong-jae (Liar Game, Time Between Dog and Wolf), will begin airing in the latter half of this year.
