Jo Byeong Gyu, Kim Sejeong, Yoo Joon Sang, And Yeom Hye Ran Share Their Closing Comments On “The Uncanny Counter”
As OCN’s “The Uncanny Counter” heads into its final episodes, the main cast shared their closing comments on the drama.
Based on a webtoon, “The Uncanny Counter” is a “Korean superhero” story about people with supernatural powers called Counters who disguise themselves as employees of a noodle restaurant and hunt down demons who have come to Earth in pursuit of eternal life.
Jo Byeong Gyu, who took on his first lead role as So Moon, said, “‘The Uncanny Counter’ was like a gift to me. Every day I spent with my peers and seniors was a chance for me to learn, and all the times I spent in discussion with director Yoo Sun Dong will remain forever as happy memories in my mind. I was so happy and had fun every day of filming. I had a lot of worries and anxieties about the results, but because of the viewers’ love, we were able to arrive at a beautiful ending for the drama.”
He added, “I came to care for So Moon as if I was his parent. To all the viewers who cherished him in the same way, I thank the ‘parents of So Moon’ all over the nation. Just like So Moon, who overcomes whatever life throws at him, I will become a Jo Byeong Gyu who perseveres no matter what situation. Let’s meet in Season 2.”
Yoo Joon Sang, who played Ga Mo Tak, a Counter with super strength, said, “I feel a lot of regrets now that ‘The Uncanny Counter,’ which I had fun filming for so long, has come to an end. We were happy that the drama received so much love, and I would like to sincerely thank the viewers who loved and cherished our show. Please tune in until the end.”
Kim Sejeong, who played Do Ha Na, a Counter with a radar for demons, said, “I was happy to film while receiving so much love from the cast and crew. It was an honor to receive what almost seemed like an excessive amount of love from the viewers. Through ‘The Uncanny Counter,’ I found new dreams, and will continue to give it my best in whatever I do so that I can be myself with a smile.”
She added, “I changed my phone background during filming. It’s a photo of the Counters and the phrase, ‘Always work hard, be grateful for what you’ve been given, be sincere toward all that comes your way, don’t be afraid but be prepared.’ I am grateful to my colleagues for helping me grow. I hope that I will be able to repay this happiness that I have received in future. Thank you to the viewers and my fellow actors.”
Yeom Hye Ran, who played Choo Mae Ok, the leader of the Counters, said, “There were some difficult moments because it was the first time I’d tried this genre, but I was able to get this far thanks to the support and cheers that people sent us. I am sincerely grateful to the viewers. This is true for all productions, but the production staff worked really hard. I am very grateful that we were able to wrap up without any major incidents. It was an honor to work with my fellow actors, who gave each other strength, and I am looking forward to returning with an even stronger second season. Thank you again to the viewers who sent us their love.”
