The hit OCN drama “Bad Guys” is getting a film spin-off!
“Bad Guys: The Movie,” a spin-off of the popular action drama, will tell the story of a special criminal investigation division that teams up with actual criminals to fight crime outside the limits of the law. The original drama first aired in 2014, followed by a second season in 2017.
On July 26, the upcoming film officially announced its starring cast. Ma Dong Seok, Kim Sang Joong, and Kang Ye Won will all be reprising their roles from the drama, with actors Jang Ki Yong and Kim Ah Joong joining as new additions to the cast.
Director Son Yong Ho commented, “I’m honored to be directing the film version of the drama ‘Bad Guys,’ which has a strong fan base. Aside from [the drama’s] original stars Ma Dong Seok and Kim Sang Joong, I’m delighted to be able to work together with Kim Ah Joong, who is able to pull off any role and always manages to show new charms, and Jang Ki Yong, a rising star with powerful charisma.”
He continued, “I’m looking forward to the combination of new cast members and original cast members, as well as the chemistry between the male and female actors. I think we’ll be creating a ‘Bad Guys’ that has a new and entirely different form from the TV drama, so I’m excited.”
“Bad Guys: The Movie” is aiming for a 2019 release and will begin filming this September.
