Kim Sejeong And Yeom Hye Ran Are Fierce Demon-Fighting Heroes In Upcoming Drama
Based on a webtoon, “The Uncanny Counter” is about demon hunters called “counters” with supernatural powers who disguise themselves as employees of a noodle restaurant in order to find and defeat demons who have come to Earth in pursuit of eternal life.
The newly released stills feature Do Ha Na (Kim Sejeong), the best human radar among counters who boasts a 100 percent accurate evil-spirit detection rate, and Choo Mae Ok (Yeom Hye Ran), the only counter with healing abilities.
In the stills, Do Ha Na and Choo Mae Ok stand sternly side-by-side with their arms crossed in a similar fashion. With their extraordinary perception and ability to empathize, the two women lead the elite rookie counter So Moon (Jo Byeong Gyu) and train him to enhance his abilities. In particular, Do Ha Na and Choo Mae Ok get especially fierce in front of demons as they glare lasers at them.
Kim Sejeong and Yeom Hye Ran also both impressed with their passionate acting on the filming set. Under the directions of the martial arts director, the two carefully memorized their movements and repetitively practiced their action scenes to perfectly nail the difficult maneuvers and convey a realistic scenario.
One aspect to look forward to in the upcoming drama is that it will be portraying female heroes in the front lines. With their psychometric and healing powers, Do Ha Na and Choo Mae Ok will deliver thrilling excitement as they take down demons.
The production team shared, “Kim Sejeong and Yeom Hye Ran impressed the staff on set not only with their difficult action scenes, such as the elevator fight and car chase, but also with their perfect portrayal of Do Ha Na’s and Choo Mae Ok’s emotions.” The production team also asked viewers to highly anticipate the two women’s passionate acting in the drama.
“The Uncanny Counter” premieres on November 28 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
