OCN Finalizes Casting of Song Seung Heon and Go Ara as Leads for Grim Reaper Police Procedural K-drama Black

Cable network OCN is taking a gamble on performance quality but will be guaranteed visual excellence returns no matter what. The network has confirmed the casting of Song Seung Heon and Go Ara as the leads for its early fall K-drama Black, a combination police procedural with the supernatural riffing off the currently in vogue grim reaper topic. Song Seung Heon plays a detective possessed by the soul of a cast off grim reaper and together with Go Ara’s character who can see the darkness they work to prevent misdeeds from happening. Recently KBS did the fun Mystery Queen with the mismatched couple of Kwon Sang Woo and Choi Kang Hee solving crimes together but they had fantastic chemistry and the stories were actually interesting so it’s going to be more than just pairing up famous names to bring to life a compelling narrative on top of using the gimmick of the grim reaper. Black airs in the fall following Save Me and will itself be followed by Bad Guys 2.

Black is penned by the screenwriter Choi Ran who wrote God’s Gift: 14 Days and Iljimae, and will be directed by thriller veteran PD Kim Hong Sun who did Voice, Pied Piper, Liar Game, Hero, and Warrior Baek Dong Soo.

  1. Visually appealing OTP but lacking in the acting dept. You would think that the production team would have gotten at least one half with acting talent. But alas. Who knows? They may surprise us. Don’t think any OTP can top Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na.

  2. With Robot Oppa’s range, perhaps it’ll be okay. There’s no need for him to emote “Angry” in this, hopefully.

  3. No doubt Song Seung heon will bring his best to the screen. A seasoned actor and always he puts 100% plus into his work!!! The chemistry will be good with Go Ara because of SSH…he has the “neck” to work well with cast members! He is a perfectionist and has proven to be so.
