Kim Ok-bin, Lee Jun-hyuk
A new action-thriller is being planned on OCN called Dark Hole and casting has been confirmed for Kim Ok-bin (Arthdal Chronicles) and Lee Jun-hyuk (Forest of Secrets 2).
The story is centered around a small town where the black smoke of an unknown substance is found drifting out from a sinkhole. The people who breathe it in become infected by the smoke — turning into monster-like creatures — and the world becomes a battleground in the fight for survival among the remaining humans.
Kim Ok-bin takes on the role of police detective Lee Hwa-sun, who works in the investigations unit. She had no family other than her husband, but he was cruelly taken away from her by a serial killer. As she tries to chase down the culprit, though, she is lured by the killer to come to a small town and she finds herself in the middle of a different conflict. The once quiet town is in a state of chaos and more and more people are being lost to mysterious black smoke.
Lee Jun-hyuk plays a native of the small town, Yoo Tae-han, who works as a rickshaw driver. He has a carefree spirit and can appear silly at times, but he knows when to be serious and has a strong sense of justice. Although he had once been a police officer, he had to resign due to a misunderstanding, and he is still proud of his past experiences. His skills come in handy as well when he meets Kim Ok-bin and they team up to help save the townspeople.
As another installment in OCN’s ongoing dramatic cinema project, Dark Hole will be directed by film director Kim Bong-joo (The Phone) who worked with Kim Ok-bin previously when he was assistant director on Over My Dead Body. And scripts will be penned by writer Jung Yi-do (Hell Is Other People).
OCN’s new drama Dark Hole is currently being planned to air in the early half of 2021.
