SBS’s upcoming drama “Those Who Read Hearts of Evil” (literal title) released a behind-the-scenes look at the first script reading!
“Those Who Read Hearts of Evil” is based on a book of the same name that was co-penned by Kwon Il Yong and Go Na Moo.

During the script reading, Kim Nam Gil awed everyone with his overwhelming performance. With his strong immersion, the actor captured his character’s fierce psychology.
Jin Sun Kyu will star as Gook Young Soo, the team leader of the Criminal Behavior Analysis team.

Kim So Jin will take on the role of Yoon Tae Goo, the team leader of the Mobile Investigation Unit at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.
