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.

I'm sooo looking forward to this!
Sound fun to watch.
I love Yeom Hye-ran's performance no matter what she plays.

Missing, Search and Amazing Rumor, I hope OCN will keep breaking their viewership records this year.

I will just copy what I wrote in @magajesj Jezz’s post yesterday:

Yeom Hye-ran (in blue) is one of my favorite character actresses. She was outstanding in WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS and also in her short appearance in HOSPITAL PLAYLIST.

I hope l will be able to follow OCN’s SEARCH with AMAZING RUMOR/WONDERFUL RUMORS. I hope it is picked up by one of the sites I have a subscription with.

Yes, Yeom Hye-ran is my favorite actress too!
She was fantastic in Mystic Pop-up bar and SF8 (the episode The Prayer) also.

Search is going to be on Viki.

I also sing the Yeon Hye-ran praises as well!

Also side note: I can't help but chuckle at Jo Byung-kyu's name. Good actor, but I remember his I Live Alone appearances. When he got waxed, OUCH. He came across as humble and down to earth there.

Hmm, at the plot description. Sounds interesting, but I can tell the execution is going to make or break it.
