Kang Ji Hwan Looks Diabolic in New Poster for MBC Drama Monster

I think audiences who are going to tune in for upcoming MBC Mon-Tues drama Monster (Tyrant) will be doing so for the screenwriter as much as the talented cast. Writer Jang Young Chul rocketed to fame thanks to Giant and since then has penned a slew of well-received dramas from Incarnation of Money, History of the Salaryman, and Empress Ki. This will be the second time leading man Kang Ji Hwan has worked with writer Jang and hopefully Monster will bring back the scope of Giant and make the most of the cast which also includes Sung Yuri, Park Ki Woong, Soo Hyun, and a guest starring appearance by Bolin Chen.

The first poster above makes Kang Ji Hwan look more like a dungeon master than a monster but his expression is certain ominous, though I’m guessing he can’t possibly be all bad and will likely be the kind of shades of grey male lead who makes audiences root for his bad acts if it’s against even badder people. The couples poster is really lovely and brings back my Hong Gil Dong feels. The new batch of drama stills below for the main cast continue to sell the visuals even if it’s going to take a darn good story to keep my interest for the full 50-episodes. I’m hoping that happens since it’s been too long since I’ve followed a long drama.

  1. All I see is Bolin Chen.he’s freaking handsome.don’t really like the poster of kang ji hwan sitting on that chair with chains.it’s a bit too much,and the one with sung yuri and kang ji hwan looks exactly the same as BEYOND THE CLOUDS poster with the leads.

  2. Is no one gna mention how one of bolin’s shirt is similar to song joong ki’s one in DoTS… HAHAH SORRY I had to do it ….:3

  3. The poster with Kang Ji Hwan and Sung Yu Ri reminds me a lot Goodbye Mr. Black poster. Does MBC only know this kinda type of poster? Sigh… Kang Ji Hwan’s face is like Eric + Park Shin Hyang combination lol. He’s pretty versatile actor. I’ll keep my eyes on it.

  4. I can see that this drama will be rating winner. My Lawyer, Mr. Jo (KBS2) will be second. And Daebak (SBS) will be third.

  5. I’m gonna wait for some reviews before jumping into any of these dramas. I do think History of a Salaryman was genius so I am fond of this writer but kind of sick of revenge scenarios. I also worked with lawyers too long to love lawyer shows so I’m most interested in the historical.
