Action-packed OCN fantasy drama Amazing Rumor holds first script read
Photos from the first script read for upcoming drama Amazing Rumor have just been revealed. Originally based on a hit Daum webtoon by the same name, this fantasy-action drama features Jo Byung-kyu (Stove League), Kim Se-jung (Let Me Hear Your Song), Yoo Joon-sang (Graceful Friends), Yeom Hye-ran (Mystic Pop-up Bar), and Ahn Seok-hwan (My Wonderful Life, Chuno).
They play demon hunters called “counters” who disguise themselves as noodle shop employees in the mortal realm. The premise and the synopsis language are totally giving me Mystic Pop-up Bar vibes on an Along With the Gods scale.
On the side of righteousness, Jo Byung-kyu is the titular character “Rumor,” who has unparalleled, prodigy-level abilities when it comes to catching demons. Yoo Joon-sang plays a counter with super-strength, but his fast-talking skills add a unique comedic flair.
Kim Se-jung plays extrasensory counter with a 100% evil-spirit-detection rate. She has the chic, haughty looks of a k-pop idol, but a personality that doesn’t match. Yeon Hye-ran plays the healer and the group’s emotional center. She’s supposed to have a bickering relationship with Yoo Joon-sang.
Ahn Seok-hwan is both the team’s warm-hearted financier and clean-up crew. Because of his role, we’ll definitely be seeing some ajhusshi flexing from Ahn Seok-hwan, which I’m looking forward to.
Others present at the script read included: Moon Sook (Old School Intern), Lee Ji-won (Romance Is a Bonus Book), Kim Eun-soo (My ID Is Gangnam Beauty), Lee Do-yeob (Melting Me Softly), and Choi Yoon-young (Designated Survivor: 60 Days). Regarding the drama, the production team said: “We will try our best to provide a refreshing, enjoyable drama to satisfy our viewers and create a cathartic release.”
OCN Saturday-Sunday drama Amazing Rumor, directed by Yoo Sun-dong, will begin airing later this November.
