Lee Dong Wook Offered the Male Lead in OCN Thriller Bad and Crazy by the PD and Screenwriter of The Uncanny Counter

K-ent is reporting that Lee Dong Wook is in talks for the OCN thriller drama Bad and Crazy, playing the male lead who suffers from multiple personalities. Ji Sung in Kill Me, Heal Me remains the gold standard of how to do this topic and do it right but it’s been years since that drama so I’m game for another go-around. Lee Dong Wook’s character is a materialistic ordinary police officer who one day finds his alternate personality awaken inside him and becomes a vigilante for justice.
