I’m cautiously optimistic for upcoming OCN thriller drama Player, formerly called Hustle and then later Pan, and regardless of the earlier titles has confirmed the initially discussed leads Song Seung Heon and Krystal. The two leads will be playing members of a gang of four skilled at finding and extracting ill-gotten gains from criminals, i.e. stealing from the thieves. Directing will be the PD of Syndrome, with the drama having an early fall premiere falling Voice 2. Both leads have recently dropped well-received drama performances after moving to cable networks, Song Seung Heon in OCN’s Black and Krystal with a supporting role in tvN drama Prison Playbook. Keep this one snappy and fun and I’m onboard for some trickster skillz. Of course it would be remiss for me not to mention the 18 year age gap between the leads so let’s keep the romance dialed down m’kay drama.
