I love Jang Dong Yoon but it feels like his three most recent K-dramas are venn diagrams. Tale of Nokdu he played an discarded prince in a Joseon, Search he’s a soldier hunting zombies in the DMZ, and now in upcoming Joseon Exorcist he’s a prince hunting zombies in Joseon. Despite his baby face he’s quite suitable for action pieces with his fit physique and earnest intensity, I do wish the first teaser for Joseon Exorcist didn’t immediately call to mind comparison to Netflix zombie drama Kingdom, and even to the K-movie Rampant. I probably make those associations faster than most viewers having watched and really enjoyed those two previous zombies in Joseon genre and still plan to enjoy Joseon Exorcist on its own merits.
