OCN drama pairs Seo In-gook as charming swindler, Sooyoung as upright civil servant

SeoInGook_Sooyoung_MaDongSeok1.jpg

Ah, so the cast has been finalized for OCN’s scam-artists-catching-scam-artists dramaPolice Unit 38, and it’s the same actors that were initially in contention: Seo In-gook (I Remember You), Sooyoung (My Spring Days), and Ma Dong-seok (Bad Guys). I like the actors, and moreover, I like the way this drama is taking a humorous spin on a crime squad, so this is good news.

The drama is a little oddly specific in its premise: A team is assembled to go after tax evaders using any means necessary, which includes using the criminals’ own tactics to trick them and bring ’em down, whether it’s through lies, subterfuge, con artistry, or the like. Is it strictly ethical? Well, maybe not exactly… but sometimes you just want people to get things done, and a bureaucratic system full of red tape is not exactly the most efficient justice delivery vehicle.

 

(Fyi, the title is translated Police Unit 38, where Article 38 of the legal code is the part that deals with tax payment. The word for police unit has a prefix attached that plays on the word for scam, since the team will employ scams of their own in catching their targets.)

Seo In-gook will play a charming swindler who’s sexy, smart, and glib, which makes for frankly perfect casting. It should also give us a fun match-up, since he’ll have an unlikely bromance with Ma Dong-seok, who plays the upright, righteous chief of the tax collection department. Sooyoung, meanwhile, lives by the rules as a civil servant working in the tax evasion department who is principled and logical in everything — which suggests to me that she may not have the easiest adjustment to working with our con artist hero. Should be a fun meeting of personalities, and the producers promise a fast tempo to the cases, humor, and satisfying plots.

Police Unit 38 comes from writer Han Jung-hoon, who’s already produced several hit OCN crime dramas, Bad Guys and both seasons of Vampire Prosecutor. Directing is PD Hwang Joon-hyuk of Hidden Identity. It will air in June.

38 Task Force seems like a good drama.

I tend to like pre-produced drama a lot (minus Cheese in Trap) but I have huge hopes that this one is superb (there's Seo In Guk, duh~ :wub: and the awesome Ma DongSeok).

Bad Guys is awesome, hope the writer could make interesting plot and characters since this is a pre-produced drama. You know, how i wish Park Bo Gum could join here, but he already signed in another drama, huhu... i miss the brothers from IRY badly. :bawling:

 Ha ha same here.. oh  same day news it seems. new drama for both of them. But I like my drama gritty and full action. I'm gonna be here :)

 More news...

https://www.dramafever.com/news/seo-in-guk-and-sooyoung-set-to-headline-ocns-police-unit-38/

Seo In Guk and Sooyoung set to headline OCN's crime comedy Police Unit 38

 

f7b5ff46-7eca-4563-b181-bfe2ac5455cb.png

Seo In Guk and Sooyoung recently confirmed that they will lead the cast of upcoming OCN series Police Unit 38Ma Dong Suk joins them in the comedic crime drama about con artists who team up with civil servants to catch tax evaders. 

Seo In Guk will play slick con artist Yang Dong Jo, who finds himself helping the tax collection department. Sooyoung will play Chan Sung Hee, an upright civil servant working on the tax evasion team, and Ma Dong Suk will play tax collection chief Baek Sung Il, who has an unlikely bromance with Dong Jo.

Together, the team will come up with various scams to go after the nation's most notorious tax evaders. So, basically it's Bad Guys but with less murder, like Bad Guys by way of American show White Collar? I'm sold!

Given the similar plot, it should come as no surprise that this drama comes from the writer/director team behind Bad Guys (which also included Ma Dong Suk in one of his best roles). Police Unit 38 is described as a comedy, however, so it will probably be a lot more lighthearted than the previous drama.

What do you think about this casting news and the plot synopsis? I find both Seo In Guk and Sooyoung immensely charming, so I have no doubt their onscreen chemistry will be off the charts. Toss in this writer/director team, and I'm officially counting down the days until the June premiere!

This guy in new a drama. jongski is happy. So the drama is crime-com which if done well can be a hit. It's not the gritty crime drama I'm always looking for this probably gone be more of a  witty smart aleck kinda crime drama. After  psycho I Remember You.. we're gonna see him again. :wub:

@jongski I'm glad he's not typically common actor who has ambition to get popular. He's kind type of guy whose willing to take a challenging role. That's why i adore him. I hope he won't change. so far this casting news has a lot of positive comments. :wub:

@LavelyShai I waited until somebody confirmed it to take the role. When dramabeans wrote an article, they were still considering. Then i felt excited at the moment when i heard the news and I can't wait any longer. kkeekkkee....

And yaayyyyy.... (dance in happiness) :D:D:D

Ah... yes... another OCN drama in the pipeline. Excellent. This is one that doesn't have vampires which means I am in!

Our favourite gangster from Bad Guys is a tax collector here... so nothing's change... If he's not careful he'll be typecast. :P

Seo In-gook is always good value. Definitely looking forward to this one.

I am also curious to watch this. I loved all the dramas where Seo I.G. worked. He is a really good actor. The other reason is the writer from Bad Guys!

Don't you think that @liddi, @NRGchick, @kyunii88 will be interested in this one as well?

@bebebisous33 Thank you for the shoutout. I was intrigued when I read the news about this drama, especially seeing that Seo In Guk and Ma Dong Suk are leading the cast. Tax collection... perhaps it won't be as dark as Signal or Bad Guys :P Will be keeping a lookout for this when it airs!

Post deserves a quote. I agree. And what I like about this upcoming drama... positive comments and good vibes and no controversies and all that. And the fact that SIG is a good actor.. he's just simple normal guy. Nothing loud or in your face. I love. :):wub:

Another post deserves a quote. This is exactly why I love Seo In Guk. I'm so happy that this new drama brings only positive vibes so far. Some of SIG previous dramas had some sort of controversies even before it aired, like King's Face and I Remember You as well when other actors turned down the offer.

Hugs to @phi3nk big thanks for starting this thread! You're awesome! :wub:

@40somethingahjumma, hi there, I remember you from The King's Face thread, so happy to see you here, hope this is much better in writing than King's Face hehe

I'm not familiar with pre produced Kdrama. Does it mean we would still be able to get stills, BTS vids, and other news from filming set? It feels great to have any news from the shooting set and commenting on forum like this, it feels like really going on the set in person lol oh how I wish.

Gukkiyaaa, come soon please!!! :wub::wub::wub:
