Yoon Shi-yoon, Kyung Su-jin, and Shin So-yool cast in new OCN drama Train


Yoon Shi-yoon, Kyung Su-jin, Shin So-yool

A new OCN sci-fi/fantasy mystery is being planned called Train, and casting has been confirmed for actors Yoon Shi-yoon (Psychopath Diary), Kyung Su-jin (Joseon Survival Guide), and Shin So-yool (Big Issue).

The drama is centered around a man who loses everyone he loves at the hands of an elusive serial killer. And he makes the decision to cross over into a parallel universe in order to uncover the truth.

Yoon Shi-yoon plays the role of Seo Do-won. As team lead of the violent crimes division on the police force, he puts his whole body, mind, and soul into capturing criminals at all cost. When he crosses over into the parallel world, he is confronted by an alternate version of his self. In one world, Yoon is trying to pay for crimes on his father’s behalf. In the other, his life is put in a precarious situation as a result of his father’s crimes.

Kyung Su-jin takes on the character of Han Seo-kyung. In one reality, she’s a prosecutor who is open, honest, and wears her heart on her sleeve. But in the alternate world, she’s a logical and unfeeling police detective who works in the violent crimes unit.

Shin So-yool plays crime scene investigator Lee Jung-min. She is Yoon Shi-yoon’s first love and childhood friend, and they’ve lived in the same neighborhood throughout their school years. She enjoys helping Yoon through her work and she will always cheer him on whenever and wherever he is.

Written by Park Ga-yeon and directed by Ryu Seung-jin (Crazy Waiting), OCN’s upcoming drama Train is currently being planned to air in summer 2020.

Overdosing on the serial killer theme. And how many alternate universe dramas does that make in the past year? What does it say about drama-watchers that producers, directors, and writers think it's better to recycle the same popular elements than to try for something original?

IF I finish Memorist, I plan to never watch a serial killer drama again. Talk about an overused theme! How many serial killers can a country the size of ROK have, for crying out loud?

Sounds like The King and Rugal and The Voice 1 mashup. Parallel worlds from the King, loved ones killed from Rugal+The Voice 1.

Also what is it with Yoon Shi Yoon and dual roles? Can't he be one person in a drama. Hua3

Thank you for Yoon Si-yoon casting news, @tccolb. ;-)

Oh, dang, not another serial killer who wipes out an entire family. Please, Kdramaland, stop flogging an exhausted horse. Take a cue from Hollywood during the Depression and crank out escapist fare such as screwball comedies to take our minds off the lurking coronavirus and attendant real life economic news. How about some homicide-free heartwarming tales of courage and decency? Please. I beg of you.

On the other hand, I'm always glad to see Yoon Si-yoon on my screen, and am tickled that he'll be back so soon. And in another dual role, no less. Let's hope that he's not riding the same subway that drove us all nuts in TOMORROW WITH YOU. And that he's off in his own alternate universe and steers clear of Lee Min-ho's. Hwaiting, Dong-gu! ;-)

Yoo hoo, @marcusnyc20 bong-soo: Viki has already signed on to provide subtitles.

YSY was set to film the movie PRIVATE WOMAN with Kim Yoon-hye back in October. That's another production to anticipate.

Thanks @pakalanapikake for the shout out. If it is YSY I am there. I love the idea of him as a tough cop. Trying to follow stories in parallel universe is another thing. The synopsis also has a COME AND HUG ME vibe. Right now I am having enough trouble following another favorite Lee Joon-hyuk (1984) in one universe in 365: REPEAT THE YEAR. He and his crowd went back only I year and I am confused as all what not.
Re YSY’s upcoming film PRIVATE WOMAN. I can’t find any current news.
O/T I see also on Viki’s “Coming Soon” list Lee Joon-gi’s upcoming drama FLOWER Of EVIL. I don’t know what to think of this one yet.

I’m also interested in seeing him play a cop.
Also not sure what to make of LJK’s upcoming show. 🤔

You're most welcome, @marcusnyc20 bong-soo. Glad to hear from you, and hope that all's well in your neck of the woods.

It'll be fun to see Yoon Si-yoon playing a lawman. Here's hoping he discovers a flair for action. He served in the Marines, so I can imagine him tackling baddies after running them down on foot. Who needs car chases when foot chases in traffic and across rooftops are an option?! Seo Kang-joon did well as a cop in THE THIRD CHARM and WATCHER, and I bet YSY will, too. The vibe I'm getting from the description leads me to suspect that his character goes from being the hunter in one universe to being the quarry in the other. I don't think it's necessarily a good vs. evil scenario, but I could be wrong.

I'm finding 365: REPEAT THE YEAR to be a challenge to follow, too. I'm glad to see Lee Joon-hyuk '84 playing a happier, more expressive character than in the last few dramas of his that I've seen. I don't know what to make of the pseudo time-travel. Are we dealing with mass hypnosis? Mass delusion? Brainwashing? Lee Shin is a cypher, that's for sure. I cannot fathom her game, let alone her endgame.

FLOWER OF EVIL sounds kind of grim. But if it's anywhere near as good as TWO WEEKS, I'm in. It feels like a dog's age since I had to drop CRIMINAL MINDS. I've been missing Lee Joon-gi a lot, and would love to see him in another sageuk -- preferably facing off against Jang Hyuk and swashing buckles like mad. It would be epic.

By any chance are you watching NOBODY KNOWS? I'm thoroughly enjoying it. The twists and turns in the plot have kept me on the edge of my seat, and are keeping me guessing as to how the "stigmata murders" tie in with financial malfeasance in a peculiar sect. The pacing is brisk, the cast is great, and Kim Seo-hyung is fabulous as the lady detective. She's every bit as kickass as Kim Hye-soo has been as lawyer Jung Geum-ja in HYENA. As expected, Ryu Deok-hwan and Park Hoon are knocking out of the ballpark as well. The child actors have been terrific, too.

Re: PRIVATE WOMAN
I haven't seen any recent news on it either. With the current closure of theatres and cinemas in ROK, many movie releases are being delayed, or are going straight to Netflix and other online venues.

@pakalanapikake,
Pleased to report everything is fine with me just hunkered down. I hope the same us with you and yours.
Yes, I am watching NOBODY KNOWS and loving it. Hopefully this will break up once and for all the jinx that Kim Seo-hyung’s career has had to deal with apparently because she played ‘baddies’ so good. It is generating very nice ratings and I couldn’t be happier.
Along with NK, I am currently live watching WEATHER, 365, and HOSPITAL PLAYLIST and enjoying all of them. Maybe because I have been a little more careful I don’t have a ‘dropped‘ yet this year. I still have to work in KINGDOM 2.
Be safe.

Glad to hear you're okay, as are we, @marcusnyc20 bong-soo.

I'm enjoying HOSPITAL PLAYLIST. The music is great, and I love the garage band that doesn't practice in a garage. They look like they're having such a blast. I'm happy as a clam to see Yoo Yeon-seo after missing him in ROMANTIC DOCTOR, TEACHER KIM 2 -- and after his tragic turn in MR. SUNSHINE.

As for KINGDOM 2, it is epic. It picks up right where season 1 left off, so I'm glad I rewatched it to refresh my memory and maybe notice details I'd missed the first time around. When I get a breather, I'll watch season 2 again. It has been well worth the wait as far as quality is concerned. It just feels weird to have it spread out over years instead of a couple of months like normal Kdramas. Reminds me of the original STAR WARS movies. On the other hand, if Netflix was the only way it could be staged as the author envisioned it, so be it. Writer-nim has written a heck of a story, PD-nim and crew have captured it perfectly, and the cast have marvelously brought it to life in all its zombified glory. I'm not a fan of horror movies, but for me this isn't a horror movie so much as a sageuk on steroids.

WEATHER turned a corner for me this week, and now I finally grok why Mom and Auntie, as well as Hae-won, are so freaking weird. It's interesting to see how the child's being kept in the dark about her severely dysfunctional family continues to affect her as an adult. (I realized that what has been ringing my chimes is the authenticity of the emotions and attitude Park Min-young has been conveying. Like Esom's gritty performance in THE THIRD CHARM, it's painfully realistic.) Her situation is the opposite of what Eun-seob has had to deal with: he knows all about his family baggage, and made his peace with it long ago. I had been thinking that there might have been a whack-o birth secret such as Auntie being Hae-won's real mother, but the twist is way better than that, IMHO.

I've also noticed that the womenfolk in Bookhyun Village are the movers and shakers in all kinds of relationships, while the male population seems to be predominantly beta. It's a refreshing departure from the old wrist-grabbing stereotype.

I am with you on Lee Jun Gi. I'd love to see him in another sageuk preferably the Arang and the Magistrate/Joseon Gunman type and not the Scholar who walks the night type. A good sageuk will do. We all know how good LJG can be with fight scenes. Since Time Between Dog and Wolf.

@audrey11 ohduhree,
Amen to LJG in ARANG & THE MAGISTRATE, one of my all-time favorite sageuks, fusion or otherwise, which also introduced me to Shin Min-ah, Yeon Woo-jin, and Jung Bo-suk, along with scads of fine character actors. It's my gold-standard for world-building in fantasy dramas. Jade Emperor's flowery goat still cracks me up, and his rivalry with Yeomra is wonderfully petty. The music and literary references such as "The Butterfly Dream" of Zhuangzi [Chuang-tzu] elevated the whole production, and added a poetic Taoist dimension that prompted me to read up on the subject. MC Sniper's rap cranked up the excitement in the fight scenes just as it did in CHUNO. Dang, now I really want to see LJG and Jang Hyuk slugging it out in an old-school sageuk. Ha! I just remembered Yi Bang-won's fan in MY COUNTRY. LJG vs. JH with fans, at 10 paces. ;-)

i'm kinda glad kim jae uck didn't accept this project. the plot doesn't sound too interesting and too cliché for me.. but maybe if he plays the psycho killer, i'm in!!! haha.. but then again, he don't tend to repeat same roles or character description in his resume. :)
