Kim Nam-gil cast in SBS crime thriller
Kim Nam-gil (Fiery Priest) will be starring in an upcoming SBS drama called Those Who Read Hearts of Evil. Based on a 2018 novel written by Korea’s first criminal profiler Kwon Il-yong and author Go Na-moo, this drama is a crime thriller centered around behavioral profilers who try to “read the hearts” of serial killers.
In this new project, Kim Nam-gil will be playing the main role of Song Ha-young, a profiler who knows how to understand people and their intentions better than anyone else. I have faith that Kim Nam-gil will create a perfect Song Ha-young persona, showing the character’s cold charisma and doggedness in criminal pursuit.
Filming for Those Who Read Hearts of Evil will begin as soon as casting finishes. It looks like Island, the previous project Kim Nam-gil was confirmed for, has been pushed back (potentially due to Seo Ye-ji having dropped out a few weeks back and the need to cast a new actress). As of now, Kim Nam-gil is still attached to the project so we’re in for a Nam-gil-full year.
