Lee Joon cast as vampire detective in new OCN drama
It looks like the big vampire trend isn't quite ready to end, as we have yet another vampire drama in the works. Lee Joon has just signed on to headline OCN's Vampire Detective alongside Lee Se Young (Trot Lovers) and Oh Jung Sae (Marry Him If You Dare).
Vampire Detective will follow prickly detective Yoon San (Lee Joon), who decides to become a private investigator after a painful accident during his police days. When he suddenly becomes a vampire, he decides to investigate the mystery of his own past.
Can Lee Joon pull off a vampire role?
Yeah, I somehow think he'll be just fine....
Oh Jung Sae will play Yong Goo Hyung, a fellow detective and loyal friend who helps Yoon San cover his secret and investigate crimes. Lee Se Young will play a smooth con woman who joins the team after losing her beloved brother in a tragic accident.
Of course, the immediate question here is if OCN is going to make a series about a prickly crime-solving vampire and his trusty team, why on earth isn't that drama titled Vampire Prosecutor 3? I, for one, have not recovered from the cliffhanger at the end of season 2. I will never recover until you give me more brooding Yun Jung Hoon! Never, I say! I guess the easy answer is the Yun Jung Hoon finished Mask not too long ago, but still....Can we at least ask for a cameo?
Vampire Detective will be completely pre-produced before airing, and it is planned for a 2016 premiere on OCN.
