New OCN action-thriller casts Kim Ok-bin, Lee Jun-hyuk


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.

Contagion, mutation, a potential apocalypse...AND a serial killer. Plus our favorite weasel playing a rickshaw driver? Gotta say OCN shows no inclination toward "subtle."

I am not sure about the rickshaw driver
Here:
https://asianwiki.com/Dark_Hole
LJH-1984’s character is described as working “as a wrecker driver”. A tow truck driver. (That is how I read it.)

O/T. I just discovered that both Lee(s) Joon-hyuk (1972 and 1984) appeared together about a year ago in OCN’s THE LIES WITHIN.

Both LJHs were in The Lies Within, but they didn't have any scenes together! They finally got together at the wrap-up party and took a picture, hehe!

Lee Jong-hyuk (The Lies Within) was oldest than 1984-born Lee Joon-hyuk. The former was 48 years old while the latter was 36 years old.

Lee Joon-hyuk's 1972-born and 1984-born were both born in March. But there was another/third Lee Joon-hyuk I found and he was born in April 1, 1998. But when former child star 1998-born Lee Joon-hyuk was in 2020, he was 22 years old. LJH-1998 was faded into obscurity and/or disappeared from both public eye and entertainment world since 2008 unlike the 1972-LJH and 1984-LJH. I think 1998-LJH was graduated from high school or college and he worked in non-entertainment company (e.g. business, construction company). 1998-LJH's source: https://asianwiki.com/Lee_Joon-Hyuk_(1998)

Super late reply, sorry! But IA. I ahem was researching his works, and in the early stages of his career he did more cheesy romantic work, so check that out on YT? Also he did a short drama about a wedding/bride thing, and he was more smiley there. It seems he's not oppose to romance work in his interviews, but the works he gets are thrillers. Fingers crossed, its a cute rom-com next!!

At least once this show is done the FL won't have to suffer the embarrassment of being known as "Kim Ok-bin (Arthdal Chronicles)".

P.S: This is only 6 episodes. Like the FL/ML pairing. Lee Joon Hyuk impressed me with a character in Stranger that otherwise would've been detested into a lovable character. He's one of those actors that may not hone the spotlight, but always a delight!

Thanks for the heads up on the number of episodes.
I am eagerly awaiting OCN’s SEARCH (Jang Dong-yoon) (available Oct 17 on Viki) which is also part of the OCN Dramatic Cinema project and after just checking SEARCH will have 10 episodes.

I saw a plotline on its Asianwiki page (https://asianwiki.com/Dark_Hole) and that city was Muji. I knew Muji was a fictional city and in real life, Muji also had all three real life locations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muji_(disambiguation)): two Chinese places (both from Xinjiang) and a major Japanese retail company.
