The posters and teasers for upcoming jTBC Fri-Sat drama Beyond Evil (Korean title Monster) definitely wants audiences to be uncertain going into the drama whether the male leads are good or bad. Coupling up veteran Shin Ha Kyun with youngster Yeo Jin Gu in the cop buddy investigation is not new but rarely has it been telegraphed so early that one or both may not be what they seem. The posters and previews look good, not terribly flashy but nicely frames both leads who are talented in conveying tons of nuanced emotion with just their eyes and expression. It does feel a bit like Awaken (Night and Day) in that the present day investigation is tied with something that happened two decades ago and that’s not a bad thing as long as the story ties the events together logically and builds the emotional connection for the good guys to solve the crimes.
