Slated for January 2020 broadcast, the new MBC series is directed by Jang Joon Ho and is backed up by Dream Works. Threading on mystery crime genre, expectations are mounting owing to its powerhouse cast.
An interesting crime drama plot
Portraying the role of a clairvoyant, Ok Taecyeon suits up as Kim Tae Pyung. He possesses the ability to foresee how someone will die by looking at his eyes. Interestingly, his prophetic power though is not working on Seo Jun Young (Lee Yeon Hee), a detective who partners with him to solve crime cases.
On September 19, MBC confirmed the news that actor Lim Ju Hwan officially joined the series playing the role of a forensic specialist.
In charge of overseeing the production is director Jang Joon Ho. His previous works include Hotel King, Good Thief Bad Thief and Time. Penning the script is rookie writer Lee Ji Hyo who aims to present novel and solid concept to the small screen.
Powerhouse crime-busting team
Chosen as Ok’s comeback project, the actor goals to present an extraordinary character who is spirited enough to deny negativity. Challenging a detective role, Lee preps to color her new character with charisma and emotion that stem from her grief in losing her father as a child.
The Game: Towards Midnight reunites Ok Taecyeon and Lee Yeon Hee since the 2012 film, Marriage Blue. Both actors have since broadened their acting experience by starring in varied works such as romance, historical and crime stories.
Hyping up the main leads’ roster, Lim Ju Hwan takes the role of Gu Do Kyung, a brainy forensic expert who will be working with Lee and Ok’s characters.
The production team highly vouches for an explosive synergy among the characters. They take pride of the actors’ passion and chemistry and ask for interest once the drama begins.
