The preview is out for upcoming OCN drama Neighborhood Hero, the comeback drama for PD Kwak Jung Hwan after his epic fail that was Basketball, and also the comeback drama for K-actor Park Shi Hoo after his accused rape scandal nearly two years ago. I’m not quite ready to welcome Park Shi Hoo’s onscreen return but it’s happening no matter what so the question is whether I’m tempted to watch it for PD Kwak and the promise of a good story. I think the latter is tempting, the preview looks solidly interesting, and even has a superhero origin story vibe going on. I also like that it’s not a romance drama and aims to showcase justice and crime fighting from a very localized perspective. The drama posters are also nicely done, presenting the full cast in a neighborhood versus super spy setting. The drama premieres January 23rd on OCN.
