Joo Jin-mo up to join the Bad Guys in Age of Evil

by tipsymocha



I’m really liking the casting decisions being made for OCN’s Bad Guys spinoff, Bad Guys: Age of Evil. On the heels of Park Sung-woong (Man to Man), Kang Haneul (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo), and Park Joong-hoon’s (Hanji, My Dear Desperado) offers to star in the upcoming OCN series, Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase) has also been approached to join the cast.............

@Go Seung Ji, thank you for making a thread for BG2. Very much looking forward to it.

I haven't watched BG1, so I can't join people lamenting the absence of the original cast. Let's hope for the best for this one instead, which is obviously a completely different drama under the same helmet.

 Actor Jisoo goes to prison for OCN's Bad Guys: City of Evil



There’s been a casting changeup for the Bad Guys spinoff headed to OCN later this fall: One of the four main actors, Uhm Tae-gu (Maids), had to drop out of the drama due to health reasons, and so Ji-soo (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon) has signed on to replace him. He’ll be joining Park Joong-hoon (Hanji, My Dear Desperado), Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase), and his former Goryeo-era brother Kang Haneul (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) in the new action thriller.

Bad Guys: City of Evil is the latest from OCN’s PD Han Dong-hwa of Police Unit 38 and writer Han Jung-hoon of Police Unit 38, Bad Guys, and Vampire Prosecutor. The first season featured a ragtag group of convicts brought together by a morally questionable detective who wanted to use bad guys to catch worse guys, and was a big success for the network. In the spinoff, half of the bad guys will be prosecutors—Park Joong-hoon and Kang Haneul—but in true Bad Guys fashion, they’ll be the type to do anything to mete out justice.

Ji-soo will play a man who sacrifices himself in order to save his family, and goes to prison to serve someone else’s sentence. But then he discovers that it was a trap set by the mob from the start, and he’ll undergo a 180 degree transformation and vow to live his life differently. It sounds like a great character with a strong arc, and after playing brawling high school rebels and a homicide detective, I’m sure he’s up to the demands of the action-packed role. For me, it’s just another reason to watch the new season of Bad Guys, especially when he’ll be reuniting with Kang Haneul for more potential bromance.

Bad Guys: City of Evil will air later this year on OCN.

Congrats to Ji-soo. At least now he gets a lead role being a bad guy to be a good guy! And I wonder what kind of bromance will jagga-nim prepare for us in this upcoming installment. Something much more juicier than MLSHR I hope... And I am looking forward to this spinoff too!

Hi everyone! First time posting here, beforehand I wanna thank @Go Seung Ji for opening this thread! Also I've been skimming through articles and several are stating that Bad Guys 2 will air after Save Me "한편 '나쁜 녀석들2'는 '구해줘' 후속으로 방송 예정이다." (Source) It was supposed to air after Black in November/December so I hope it's true and OCN confirms it. Hah.

Kang Haneul backs out of Bad Guys spinoff

by tineybeanie



Uh-oh, this doesn’t look good. Following Uhm Tae-gu’s (Maids) dropout of Bad Guys: City of Evil due to an injury, Kang Haneul has also announced that he will be quitting the project. Unfortunately, scheduling around the actor’s impending military service enlistment date proved to be impossible.

The drama is a spinoff of the highly successful Bad Guys that is supposed to show the unlikely partnership between amoral prosecutors and hardened criminals. Kang Haneul had been planning to play a third-year prosecutor from Seoul who is sent down to a provincial office after a traumatic event in which he witnesses his mentor being killed. The production team is currently frantically trying to find a replacement actor because the character is integral to the overall story line.

Meanwhile, Uhm Tae-gu was recently replaced by Ji-soo (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon) in the role of an innocent man who was framed by the mob and transforms completely as a result. Even without Kang, the casting lineup is solid with Ji-soo and veterans like Park Joong-hoon (My Dear Desperado) and Joo Jin-mo (Woman With a Suitcase) onboard. But I’m not going to lie, a huge part of why I had faith in this spinoff project was Kang Haneul, an actor who I believe could deliver a performance on par in caliber with Park Hae-jin’s portrayal of an amnesiac psychopath in the original series.

It does make me worry a little that these successive actor dropouts are happening so late in the game. But on the bright side, it opens discussion up for more fantasy castings. Maybe someone should tell them that Park Seo-joon (Fight My Way) and Ryu Joon-yeol (Lucky Romance) are free right now…

OCN’s Bad Guys: City of Evil is slated to premiere this November.

So the lead  back out. Wait I thought KHN is only like 23 or 24 yrs. Is he in his 30's already? wasn't he in The Heirs?

 But anyway I'm happy for Ji Soo being part of Bad Guys 2. Is he not good for KHN role? he's impressive as bokdong in Angry mom..  Anyway, I'm still gonna watch this spin off because..  I like the original. Anything crime action psycho mystery thriller.. I watch.

Okay my choices. What do you think?  know a good actor when I see. one


Yang Se Jong? I don't think I want to see him in rom-com...ooops. Hehe. Have you seen his role in

Lee Sang Yeob. because.. this guys is good! versatile actor

Seo Young Joo!!!!!!!!  his movie credentials  impressive. His acting excellent! But he's young like 20/21 yrs old

 Seo Jun Young! e this wonderful impressive actor! if you've seen Sirius or Heaven's Promise.. you'll see what I mean!

 Kim Min Suk.. from Defendant. Good acting too. you remember that scene he had with Jisung inside the prison cell?

LSY SJY older actors the res are like below 25 I think..
