Park Seo Joon And Han So Hee Confirmed As Leads Of New Thriller Drama
It was first reported last year that the two actors were in talks to star in “Gyeongseong Creature” (literal title).
On January 27, the upcoming drama announced that Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee have been confirmed as the leads, and filming has officially started.
Set in the dark times of Spring 1945, “Gyeongseong Creature” is a thriller about two young adults who face off against a creature and fight for survival. It will be written by Kang Eun Kyung of the “Dr. Romantic” series and directed by Jung Dong Yoon of “Stove League.”
Park Seo Joon is set to play Jang Tae Sang, a wealthy man of Bukchon who has naturally keen insight and knows how to get by in the world. His sociable personality also makes him a well-known figure through Bukchon.
Jang Tae Sang has always gone along with the reality before his eyes rather than following justice, but he then meets Yoon Chae Ok who has lived a completely different life from him. When she enters his life, Jang Tae Sang faces what he has hidden away deep in his heart and begins to change as he thinks about what it means to “live like a human.”
Han So Hee takes on the role of Yoon Chae Ok, who searches for missing people. Since she was young, she learned how to get by in life with her father as they journeyed through Manchuria and Shanghai. Having survived through terrible situations, she is skilled at working with guns, knives, and all sorts of machinery.
Yoon Chae Ok comes to Gyeongseong (Seoul’s name during Japanese colonial rule over Korea) to track down her mother who disappeared 10 years ago and ends up meeting Jang Tae Sang. While chasing down a mysterious case of serial disappearances, she comes face-to-face with the horrifying reality.
Park Seo Joon shared about his new drama, “I am very interested in the historical backdrop of Gyeongseong. I found a project with that setting, and I am excited and happy to work with an incredible writer, director, and staff members. I will now work hard to portray Jang Tae Sang as an actor.”
Han So Hee commented, “I am honored to show a new side of myself through ‘Gyeongseong Creature,’ which is filled with diverse and various stories like Chae Ok who appears tough on the outside but has a warm heart. In order to live up to the great expectations and interest, I will work hard to impress by preparing more diligently.”
“Gyeongseong Creature” is scheduled to premiere in 2023.
