Cast Of “Luther” Remake Gathers For First Script Reading

by L. Kim



The cast of the Korean remake of “Luther” met up for the first script reading.

The cast of “Bad Detective” (literal translation) consists of Shin Ha Kyun, Lee Seol, Park Ho San, Kim Geon Woo, Hong Eun Hee, Ryu Tae Ho, B1A4’s Baro, Bae Da Bin, Yoon Hee Suk, Kim Na Yoon, Bae Yoo Ram, Yang Ki Won, Jo Yi Hyun, and Bae Yoon Kyung.

The drama will star Shin Ha Kyun as the tough and unscrupulous detective Woo Tae Seok, a character based on Idris Elba’s John Luther from the original British series. One day, he crosses paths with a female psychopath (Lee Seol), but he is unable to arrest her due to a lack of evidence. Eventually, she helps him solve other cases.

In early September, the cast attended the first script reading at the Sangam MBC building. Producing director (PD) Kim Dae Jin showed his appreciation to the cast and crew, saying, “Seeing the actors and staff present in one spot makes me feel sturdy and confident. I hope everyone will not get hurt and be healthy while filming ‘Bad Detective’.” Writers Heo Joon Woo and Kang Yi Hun stated, “While writing ‘The Bad Detective,’ we had thought of many images, and now we’re thrilled to see them in front of our eyes at this script reading scene. We will do our best to write something that makes all the actors here shine.”


With the start of the full-scale script reading process, the actors showed their roles in an instant, immersive way, and completely implemented characters to raise expectations for the drama. Shin Ha-kyun, who plays the lead actor, completely became the bed detective Woo Tae Seok. He instantly showed his concentration in the drama and analysis of his unique character.

Luther adaptation Bad Detective holds first script reading

by tipsymocha


I feel like adaptations tend to be a bit of a hit-or-miss, but I’m hoping that the success of Life on Mars is a positive indication for this next British-to-Korean adaptation. MBC has just released some photos from the first script read for Bad Detective, a re-imagining of BBC’s Luther, and the cast looks like a good mix of veterans and fresh faces that will be interesting to look out for. Shin Ha-kyun (What a Man Wants, Pied Piper) will be joined by Park Ho-san (The Guest), Cha Sun-woo (Manhole), rookie film actress Lee Seol (Two Rooms), and fellow newcomer Kim Gun-woo (Live).

The original BBC series followed the titular detective Luther, who’s a bit of a lone wolf and very driven on whatever case he’s on. The only problem is that he’s so driven that sometimes he can blur the line between what’s ethically appropriate and not. The story really begins with an encounter with a female serial killer who becomes obsessed with him after watching him try and fail to get her put behind bars. I found this relationship between the psychopath genius and detective fascinating, if not also disturbing, so I’m interested to see whether Shin Ha-kyun and Lee Seol can produce that same intensity Idris Elba and Ruth Wilson did. I’m particularly looking forward to Lee Seol, who reportedly beat out 300 other actresses for the part.
