Seo In Guk and Sooyoung pair up for OCN’s ‘Police Unit 38’

I love Seo In Guk and I love Sooyoung and so I’m full of the joys of spring with the news that they will star together in upcoming OCN drama Police Unit 38. The show will also star veteran actor Ma Dong Suk. It will be a romance-comedy-crime drama that centers around a team that goes after tax evaders using all means necessary. The tax evasion department joins hands with a con artist to catch and collect tax from those who cause huge tax scams.

Seo In Guk stars as the said con artist and swindler who is charming, sexy and smart — he is perfect for this role. Sooyoung will play a civil servant who is very principled. It is needless to say that the clash of personalities of the two leads will result in some funny scenarios and of course romance at some point. Ma Dong Suk will take the role of the righteous chief of the said department. I’m so excited for this drama it’s not even funny. I’ve always loved Seo In Guk in all his roles, the latest being in I Remember You. It’s great that Sooyoung is doing a comedy after her last melodrama My Spring Days. She instantly won my heart in Dating Agency Cyrano and I can’t wait for Police Unit 38. Both actors have shown great chemistry before with their costars and hence, I’m expecting a terrific one from these two. Fingers crossed!

Police Unit 38 is written by the screenwriter of Bad Guys and both seasons of Vampire Prosecutor. It will be directed by the PD of Hidden Identity and Bad Guys. Defintely a strong team behind the camera. It is slated to air from June.

Seo In Guk and Sooyoung Confirmed to Star in Korean Drama Police Unit 38

Posted on March 6, 2016 by Kay

Police Unit 38 Korean Drama - Seo In Guk and Sooyoung

Seo In Guk (I Remember You) and Girl’s Generation’s Sooyoung (The Spring Day of My Life) have been confirmed to star in the new OCN comedy crime drama Police Unit 38.  Sooyoung will play an upright member of the tax evasion team while Seo In Guk will be a charming con artist who ends up helping to catch tax evaders.  Also in the cast is Ma Dong Suk (Bad Guys) as the chief of the tax collection department.

The set up is complete for some humorous interactions and scenarios between this clash of personalities.  This is a very solid cast and should be a nice addition to OCN’s lineup.

Police Unit 38 comes from the writer of Bad Guys and tells the story of a special police task force that goes after tax evaders.  A group of cops and criminals will team up to catch the bad guys.

Police Unit 38 is scheduled to premiere in June on OCN.

38 Parts Potential Awesome!

So remember a while back when I was bemoaning my mind trickery that was the new OCN drama written by the Bad Guys and Vampire Prosecutor team? Remember when we (okay, me) was all “What? You mean this isn’t the coolest crossover drama ever?” then we stormed out of the room thinking of all the hotness that would be the psycho killer, mobster, contract killer and vampire was wasted on what was instead a new drama on tax fraud?

Yeah. I do, too. 

We should have put more trust into the team over there at OCN, shouldn’t we? (And again, by we, it’s probably just me, right?) New information on the drama just came out and made me go, heck yeah!

No, it’s not the possible casting of Seo In Guk that has me excited. While I like him, I’ve never quite forgiven him for being in association with the hate mail I got over the Ultimate Khottie battle last year. Sorry, Seo In Guk, I know it’s not you in particular, but that’s just how it goes sometimes. You get followed by mean crazy, and the smell will stick.

Nor is it the possible casting of Sooyoung that has made me give the show a good ‘hello there’, although, while I had issues with the drama, I found her delightful in Spring Days of My Life and still hold that she is the Korean Mandy Moore.

Sooyoung

(Right? Now that I said it you totally agree?) While she is an idol, she is a fairly decent actress with a pretty good range of emotion.

Nope. None of those things.

While yes, the premise is about tax fraud, think more White Collar than H&RBlock. Come on, how much fun was White Collar?

(Although granted I only watched the first season, but that was all me, not the fault of the drama itself.) Slick attitude-y  con man sprung from jail to catch those rich jerks who, in other dramas, are usually above the law in fast paced con man-y ways? There is a very good chance that this drama is going to be one big caper movie?

Now that has me excited.

As Police Unit 38 is being preproduced and isn’t slated for air until May, and, you know, haven’t officially cast anyone yet, I’m sure lots of things can happen to tip the drama to one side or the other. Heck, they could lose Sooyoung and sign on the show ruiner from Bridal Mask, Doctor Stranger, and any other show she was on. That would certainly turn my “Heck yeah, why isn’t this show on tomorrow?”

since this is pre-produced, i think we might get a little progress about the drama filming now. They will promoting may be weeks before it's airing. And with current Seo In Guk activities, for his new single coming out and his new web drama, idk when the first shooting will begun.

Ughhh... they should pay the long wait with the great quality. I don't have high expectation this would be as great as signal, but at least it'll entertaining. Let's hope.

@asmaraseo Thank you for the articles. Happy you could join us here. Love yaaaa... haha...

@phi3nk Signal is of different level.. it's way up there.. remember when we were anticipating Signal so much  we're like what's happening where's teaser updates and all that. yeah that drama is just wow! :wub:

This is crime-com on the lighter side kinda white collar take, if you've seen the show.. as what most articles about this up coming drama pointing out. Lets enjoy this. It;s nice to be able to watch a drama that is light yet smart and fun and this could be that drama. The one I highlight. Even when a drama is light and does not require high intense emotion this still can have good quality wiith acting, writing and directing.  Lets cheer this! :)

If you go to daum's site, they stated that it is scheduled to be a 16 episode drama.

And they have added two more actors:

Kim Byung Choon

 

Spoiler

 

He acted in Masked Prosecutor, City Hunter..

 

the funny thing is, he worked with Sooyoung before in Unstoppable Marriage (2007).

Daum stated Jo Woo Jin as well - he's in Secret Door, Medical Top Team, Empress Ki... 

 

Spoiler

 

 

Sooyoung seems like she's still in Italy and Seo In Guk seems so busy with his music release. Let's hope for the best~! I can't wait for more updates from them!

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? 

Gonna be around for this drama for it premiers, i'm craving new drama after signal ended.

Thank you for heads up bebe unni^^

Because sometimes.. drama need not be so technical and full of tears and emotions.  Just have to have good entertaining one ( of course with good script and good acting) where you can enjoy good laugh a nice action scenes. Yeah the key word there is good.  He he.

Seo In Guk for Police Unit 38..soon..like May?

I'm not sure what are these photos for but his role in the upcoming drama is a con artist catching rich tax evaders and fraud. White Collar in our mind  :)

@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

That wouldn't be hard. :P (Although The King's Face did start off decently enough) Good to see you again although TKF feels like a lifetime ago.

Generally OCN dramas are pretty good partly because they've got some really good writers doing the grunt work. If this is the writer of Bad Guys we're talking about, then we're definitely in for a treat.

Oh My Gosh, I am soooo excited, it is unreal :D

I am seriously proud that Sooyoung got to work with such an amazing team. I loved Bad Guys so much so here I am hoping some cameos, haha.

No but seriously, there are a lot of pressure but I will keep praying for it to be sucessful in ratings and quality because the latter is really important, huh ?!

 

Thanks  lot for all those news ! I hope to spend a great time with all of you !

38 Police Squad, Fighting !

Yeah 38 Police Squad aka 38 Task Force.  SIG MDS SY. June. OCN.

 Can aka also The Con Man.. well that one coming from me. :D

Because he doesn't really care about being popular. He just does his job

Plus... he always dress so nice and neat and apt nothing too loud.. I guess it comes with age too. :)

Bit mundane kinda thoughts there but he just looks good in suits and blazers.

@quockhanh45 Not sure. But June premiere date. SIG still busy with other commitments. Plus I also wonder if he's  going for MS after this drama.

I like him wearing suit and tie. More of that look. Imagine if  the "con man" looks like this <3

@quockhanh45 i think this is half pre produced drama. Just like signal, citt,, or other cable dramas. They were still shooting couple of episodes when it's first broadcasted. 

seems they already filming this weekend. They shot in the prison area. In Guk as the prisoner? haha... just curious what will he look alike?
