Powerful demon hunters Yoo Joon-sang and Jo Byung-kyu exercise in new stills for OCN’s Amazing Rumor
Who knew that Yoo Joon-sang (Graceful Friends) was hiding the body of a beast-dol under his sweet ajusshi exterior? Webtoon-based fantasy action drama Amazing Rumor has released stills of its demon hunters, played by Yoo Joon-sang and Jo Byung-kyu (SKY Castle, Stove League).
The original Daum webtoon is so popular that it boasts over sixty-five million views and counting. In it, demon hunters called “counters” pose as noodle shop employees, while capturing any evil spirits that manage to wreak havoc in the mortal realm. Jo Byung-kyu plays the titular kind-hearted prodigy demon hunting student “Rumor,” who has the learning abilities of a human (or I guess spirit) sponge. In the stills, he’s sporting his twinkling eyes and trademark broccoli hair.
Yoo Joon-sang plays a counter that has Hulk-like super-strength and 3% body fat. With his strongman abilities, he wins in any contest of physical strength. He’s a veteran counter of seven years, and these stills show his muscle-by-muscle transformation into his super-strength self. Together, Yoo Joon-sang and Jo Byung-kyu work with Kim Se-jung (Let Me Hear Your Song), Yeom Hye-ran (When the Camellia Blooms), and Ahn Seok-hwan (My Wonderful Life) to suppress the demons seeking immortality by invading the human realm.
OCN’s Saturday-Sunday drama Amazing Rumor, directed by Yoo Seon-dong and written by Yeo Ji-na, will begin airing in November.
