Masked Prosecutor (The Man in the Mask) has hit the ground running by the looks of the first drama stills of leading man Joo Sang Wook as the titular prosecutor who resorts to masked vigilantism. There’s no mask in sight, and he doesn’t appear to be in the midst of doing his prosecutorial duties either, but neither matters in the eye candy department because Joo Sang Wook looks mighty damn fine just standing there in a suit. Mrawr. I always hold my breath until I see first drama stills because of K-dramas track record of hideous character hair for no apparent reason.
The production of Big Man is behind Masked Prosecutor and claimed the story was a modern revamp of the Legend of Zorro man in the mask folktale updated and moved to Korea. I actually think it sounds more like Marvel hero Daredevil, except the male lead isn’t blind like Matt Murdoch. Either way, I am curious how a supposedly derpy and righteous prosecutor by day has the ability to take justice into his own hands at night. How was he trained? Does he have superpowers, which wouldn’t be a stretch since KBS was the network that brought us Blade Man (aka Iron Man) last year.
