OCN courts Uhm Tae-gu and snags Yoo Jae-myung for new thriller
A new mystery thriller is being planned on OCN called Hometown. Casting has been confirmed for actor Yoo Jae-myung (Itaewon Class) while Uhm Tae-gu (Rescue Me 2) is currently considering the offer.
The story takes place in an overcrowded small town where a mysterious series of murders have occurred. The only clue so far is a tape recorder that contains a recording of strange sounds that can’t be deciphered.
If Uhm Tae-gu accepts, he will be taking on the lead role of Jo Kyung-ho. After spending time studying abroad in Japan, he returned to his hometown and staged an indiscriminate terror attack using gas. He turned himself into the police shortly afterwards. But he stayed silent during his interrogations and didn’t disclose the reasons for why he did what he did. He’s currently serving a life sentence in prison and has severed all communications with the outside world.
Yoo Jae-myung’s part is reported to be a leading character as well. However, the details regarding his role have not yet been revealed.
OCN’s Hometown is currently being planned to be 6 episodes long and will be broadcasting during the summer months.
