Jo Byeong Gyu And gugudan’s Kim Sejeong Confirm For New Webtoon-Based Drama

Jo Byeong Gyu And gugudan’s Kim Sejeong Confirm For New Webtoon-Based Drama

Jul 14, 2020

Jo Byeong Gyu and gugudan’s Kim Sejeong have confirmed for the upcoming OCN drama “Extraordinary Rumor” (literal title).

“Extraordinary Rumor” is based on a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of demon hunters called Counters who come to earth under the guise of being employees at a noodle restaurant in order to capture evil spirits that have returned to earth in pursuit of eternal life.

Jo Byeong Gyu will be playing the role of So Moon, the youngest of the Counters. After suffering from a mysterious car accident as a child, he eventually becomes a central figure among the Counters.

Kim Sejeong will be taking on the role of Do Ha Na, who has the ability to sense the locations of evil spirits, even those that are hundreds of kilometers away. She can also read memories of others through touch and works with So Moon to do away with evil spirits.

Also joining the cast are actors Yoo Joon Sang, Yeom Hye Ran, and Ahn Suk Hwan.

Yoo Joon Sang will be playing a Counter with incredible strength named Ga Mo Tak. He’s a former police officer who lost his memory seven years ago after an accident and is unable to stand idle in the face of injustice. Ga Mo Tak is also So Moon’s mentor.

Yeom Hye Ran is Chu Mae Ok, a Counter with healing abilities. Outwardly, she’s the chef of the noodle restaurant, but among the Counters, she is the emotional pillar of the group.

Ahn Suk Hwan is playing the oldest Counter, Choi Jang Mool. He’s in charge of all of the Counters’ expenses, and he is a living legend among the Counters in Korea.

A source from the drama said, “The cast of Jo Byeong Gyu, Yoo Joon Sang, Kim Sejeong, Yeom Hye Ran, and Ahn Suk Hwan is perfect. Please look forward to the extraordinary synergy between the actors, who can add their own flavors to their characters, each with unique abilities and strong personalities. The drama will be a cathartic, refreshing experience with satisfying action. With the added style of OCN dramas, ‘Extraordinary Rumor’ is an action hero drama that will deliver both laughter and healing.”

“Extraordinary Rumor” is slated to air in the second half of 2020 following the end of OCN’s “Search.”

“The Uncanny Counter” Webtoon Artist Shares Excitement for Drama Adaptation + Which Cast Member He Was Surprised By

 

Jang Yi, the webtoon artist behind “The Uncanny Counter,” sat down for an interview to talk about his webtoon’s upcoming drama adaptation from OCN.

 

The drama version of “The Uncanny Counter” stars Jo Byeong Gyu, gugudan’s Kim Sejeong, Yeom Hye Ran, and Yoo Joon Sang. It is a “superhero” drama about a demon hunters called “counters” with supernatural powers who disguise themselves as employees of a noodle restaurant to find and defeat demons who have come to Earth in pursuit of eternal life.

 

Jang Yi said, “I’m grateful and happy that my webtoon got a drama adaptation. I’m happy to see a new version of my story as interpreted by the screenwriter, director, and actors. As the original artist as well as an ordinary viewer, I’m interested to see the work of other artists in other fields from mine. I’m also grateful to the amazing readers who made this possible by spreading the news of my webtoon to a bigger audience.”

 

He said that he was very satisfied with the casting choices. “The characters in the story are meant to have a close, family-like bond,” he said. “I could see the production staff working hard to create that atmosphere when it came to casting.”

 

Jang Yi continued, “After I finished the first season of the webtoon, I took a break and watched a drama with my wife. I noticed one actor in particular and joked to my wife, ‘What do you think of him in the role of So Moon?’ She agreed that he was the spitting image of him. When Jo Byeong Gyu was cast as So Moon, my wife and I were so shocked that we stared at each other and laughed. He was my No. 1 choice to play the role.”

 

About the rest of the cast, he said, “These are actors that my family, my friends, and I all like. I’m interested in every single one of them.I’m excited to see how they transform into counters and bring their characters to life.” He picked Choi Jang Mool as the character he looked forward to the most. “He wasn’t very important in the webtoon at first, but as I kept writing it, my thoughts changed, and now I love him as much as I love the main character. I’m looking forward to Ahn Suk Hwan’s portrayal of him a lot.”

 

“The Uncanny Counter” premieres on November 28. Check out a teaser here!

Unfortunately press conference has been cancelled since Uncanny Counter shared same filming location as the drama River Where The Moon Rising where one of the extras tested positive for COVID-19.
