OCN Finalizes Cast Members For First Drama Of 2018



OCN revealed that Kang Ji Hwan, Kim Ok Bin, Jang Gwang, and Jo Min Gi will be starring in upcoming drama “Children of the Small God” (tentative title).

“Children of the Small God” will premiere after currently running show “Bad Guys” in February.

The drama tells the story of two detectives who delve into the dark conspiracy of a mysterious organization.

Kang Ji Hwan plays the role of elite detective Chun Jae In, who has an IQ of 167 and only believes in facts, logic, and numbers. Kim Ok Bin stars as Kim Dan, a female detective who possesses superhuman abilities to “see things she should not be seeing.” Kim Dan is a kind-hearted member of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, who uses her intuition to discover hidden clues that even veteran detectives fail to notice.

Actor Shim Hee Sub takes on the role of prosecutor Joo Ha Min. At first glance, Joo Ha Min is the perfect example of a competent prosecutor, but he hides his true colors as an antisocial monster. The character concedes to power to survive, closing deals with people in power.

Actress Lee Elijah will be playing Baek Ah Hyun, the princess of a small kingdom who mysteriously goes missing. She seems to be the charitable and wise only daughter of major company Dae Han Group, but in fact, is hiding her true corrupt self.

More seasoned actors such as Jang Gwang, Lee Hyo Jung, and Jo Min Gi will be playing significant roles as well.

Jang Gwang plays the role of Pastor Wang from a major cult. As the religious sect leader of a deeply rooted cult, the character brought together numerous believers after curing a patient by purging them of ghosts. Pastor Wang is a powerful character who is able to influence politicians left and right.

Lee Hyo Jung is cast as chairman of a major company, Baek Do Kyu, who conspires with accomplices to protect his kingdom.

Lastly, actor Jo Min Gi appears as the opposition party’s presidential candidate Gook Han Joo. As a politician of 11 years after working as a prosecutor, Gook Han Joo finally becomes a presidential candidate through a chance opportunity. But his past confidential secret is about to hold him back from success.

“Children of the Small God” will be directed by Kang Shin Hyo, the director of hit dramas such as “The Heirs,” “Midas,” and “Tazza.” The story is written by rookie writer Han Woo Ri, who was previously a documentary writer.

The production team of the drama shared, “We are anticipating the show to write new history as the best OCN Original with its spectacular cast and crew.” The team went on to explain, “Following along OCN’s catch phase, ‘Revolutionize Character,’ ‘Children of the Small God’ will be showcasing unique characters and a fresh catharsis. Please look forward to it.”

[Orion's Daily Ramblings] Kang Ji-hwan, Kim Ok-bin and More on "Children of a Lesser God" Script Reading

2018/01/05 | 



Look at that casting goodness. Beloved actors as far as the eye can see. Sure, we're drowning in men and mostly everyone is wearing black and looking preemptively tired, but creating a work from scratch is no picnic. Jokes aside, the cast for "Children of a Lesser God" looks impressive and judging by the serious atmosphere in these images, the story looks grim.


I've already talked about the characters here, which are described once more in the news accompanying these images, but I still feel like I know very little about them. The drama feels like a mystery wrapped in a riddle, wrapped in an enigma. I mean, we went from a crime drama to the mysterious disappearance of a princess from an I'm-guessing-imaginary kingdom.


I'm trying to gauge how much this will be based on reality vs. whether we're in for a heavily alternate reality. I also wonder how much of an episodic vs. single story plot we will get. Since we have the aforementioned princess, who appears to play a vital role, I'm guessing that finding her will be the show's premise.

I'm still iffy on a lot of things regarding "Children of a Lesser God", but the cast is definitely not one of them. I wish the production and them well. The drama will follow "Bad Guys : Vile City" and it's therefore slated for a mid-February premiere on OCN.

He will play the role of Kim Ho Gi. He is the father of Kim Dan (Kim Ok Bin).

However, unlike his mild personality, who takes care of his daughter, Kim Ho-gi, who has hidden his mysterious past, is a father who constantly runs away from his past and can take his life to protect his daughter. So, with his appearance, It is anticipated that she will show her true love for Kim Dam /Kim Ok-bin. (Google translate) 





We knew that he joined the drama because we saw him in the first script reading pictures but it was nice to know more about his character in the drama.  :tongue:
