Joo Sang Wook and Kim Sun Ah may team up to fight crime in Masked Prosecutor
Just the other day, I was wondering when we would get to see another Kim Sun Ah drama, and then *poof* this story appears! The actress is reportedly in talks for the leading role in the upcoming KBS production Masked Prosecutor (not to be confused with Mask, which airs on SBS in May). Joo Sang Wook is also in talks for the male lead.
Masked Prosecutor (복면검사) will follow Ha Dae Chul (Joo Sang Wook), a prosecutor from the Southern District Office. On the outside, he's a prosecutor, but at night, he puts on a mask to fight crime in a way he is unable to do during his day job.
Meanwhile, Yoo Min Hee (Kim Sun Ah) is the head of the murder squad detectives in Seo Cho police station. She is an elite police officer who is righteous and passionate in her work.
Neither actor has confirmed the casting, but they are both in the "positively considering" stage, so there are high hopes that it will come through.
The production company is Kim Jong Hak Production, the writer is Choi Jin Won, who wrote Big Man, and the producer is Jeon San, who produced Ruby Ring. It will be aired in May after the end of Unkind Women.
The synopsis didn't specify if this is a straight thriller or if it has comedy elements, but Joo Sang Wook and Kim Sun Ah can both pull off either type of show. If they accept, their chemistry will be off the charts!
What do you think of this new pairing? Want some help imagining Joo Sang Wook as a superhero? Let me help:
