OCN Serial Killer Drama Bad Guys Shows Off Dangerous Stylish Vibe in Poster and Teasers

Are K-dramas ready for incarcerated serial killers to be our new good guys? With this cast in the upcoming Bad Guys airing on OCN, the answer would be a resounding YES from me. Kim Joong Sang, recently seen in A New Leaf and Dr. Stranger, goes from being an ethically dubious lawyer and morally righteous doctor to putting on his best detective hat as he is tasked with creating a new crime fighting squad outside the norm. He goes to the maximum security prison and finds the three most dangerous fiends in Park Hae Jin, Ma Dong Seok, and Jo Dong Hyuk to have the criminal masterminds consulting on how to catch the criminal elements still at large in the world. It’s a concept that I swear the US has done before and sounds right up the alley of J-doramas. I do like criminal procedures, I just have never turned to K-dramas for that particular fix. Until now.

OCN tries darker stuff like this so it’s the right network to do a drama where serial killers will potentially win the audience’s sympathy and support if they are playing the role of the good guys in the narrative. The drama doesn’t start until October 4th but the first drama poster and video teasers are out to sample a taste of what’s to come. The mood hits the spot in teasers, stylish and dangerous with a hint of coiled energy in the execution. Park Hae Jin’s serial killer stare is spine tingling and Kim Joong Sang with his pack of dobermans scare the bejesus out of me even though he’s the sole “good guy” in the drama as the detective in charge of this new squad. Kang Ye Won gets the play the only lady in the main cast and the teaser with her in an interrogation cell showing off her long legs momentarily flashed me back to Basic Instinct. Bad Guys will hopefully reign in any inclination for emotional makjang and let the villains show off their brilliant villain minds in the employ of the good guys for once.

  1. I am so freakin’ excited over this drama. Hope it won’t disappoint.
    Damn it, I can’t believe I am watching more cable dramas than national dramas lol. The big 3 of Korean TV need to step up.

    OCN doesn’t disappoint. I loved the Ten series and I still have Ghost Seeing Detective and Reset to watch 🙂

  2. Can’t wait for this one. It was time for the bad guys expendables justiciers of the West (Hannibal, Dexter…) to come to SK. Cast is good, crossing fingers for a decent story.

  3. Park Hae Jin gives me the chills!!! he’s such a good actor to go from an easy-go-lucky kind of guy in MLFTS to a calculating doc in DS and now to a genius psychotic serial killer. He gives me goosebumps, especially with those eyes and that slight smile!

  4. Hopefully it’ll be a lot better in keeping my interest than gapdong was. Less melodrama, and more on to the killing psyche. With this much testosterone in the cast though, it looks promising.

  5. The American show I can remember offhand that has a story about a task force made of criminals was Breakout Kings. It was about a US Marshall task force using convicts to capture escaped prisoners. It was pretty good but only got 2 seasons. I did like that it had a lady fugitive too. And she was mega badass.

    I love all these guys who are fugitives in this drama but I would’ve appreciated if they had more than one woman on the lead cast.

    It’s all good tho. I’m still pumped for the series. I love me some dark, gritty, crime dramas. And the cast is def stellar.

  6. Reset isn’t really doing it for me (and I love the cast :/) so I hope this OCN show will be better. It’s certainly an interesting concept, pretty good cast. Definitely needs more female characters though.

    I wasn’t really keen on Park Hae Jin in Man from the Stars (probably the limitations of the role rather than him though) and I stayed as far away from Doctor Stranger as possible, so hopefully he’ll impress me here.

  7. Dear Koala, the sole “good guy”‘s name is Kim Sang Joong, not Kim Joong Sang ^^ Anyway, you’re right bout him, though. I still can’t shake the bad daddy vibe he churned out in City Hunter, and now he plays this kind of role. He is really good at that sort of characterization, methinks.

  8. I am so looking forward to this drama. I like when kdrama do dark dramas (aside from Gap Dong) cause most of the time they do it so well. OCN is pretty awesome at the darks stuff so I’m not worried. PJH’s character looks and reminds me of ‘L’ from Death Note.

  9. i hope this drama will be in a suspenseful way and smartly written like dexter or hannibal (with pshyco genius here) XD, No Gapdong way please.
