New OCN action-thriller casts Kim Ok-bin, Lee Jun-hyuk

Kim Ok-bin, Lee Jun-hyuk

A new action-thriller is being planned on OCN called Dark Hole and casting has been confirmed for Kim Ok-bin (Arthdal Chronicles) and Lee Jun-hyuk (Forest of Secrets 2).

The story is centered around a small town where the black smoke of an unknown substance is found drifting out from a sinkhole. The people who breathe it in become infected by the smoke — turning into monster-like creatures — and the world becomes a battleground in the fight for survival among the remaining humans.

Kim Ok-bin takes on the role of police detective Lee Hwa-sun, who works in the investigations unit. She had no family other than her husband, but he was cruelly taken away from her by a serial killer. As she tries to chase down the culprit, though, she is lured by the killer to come to a small town and she finds herself in the middle of a different conflict. The once quiet town is in a state of chaos and more and more people are being lost to mysterious black smoke.

Lee Jun-hyuk plays a native of the small town, Yoo Tae-han, who works as a rickshaw driver. He has a carefree spirit and can appear silly at times, but he knows when to be serious and has a strong sense of justice. Although he had once been a police officer, he had to resign due to a misunderstanding, and he is still proud of his past experiences. His skills come in handy as well when he meets Kim Ok-bin and they team up to help save the townspeople.

This is my reaction also. I am less excited by the "turning into monsters plot" but  I love the cast, and it is OCN and its "dramatic cinema project" like Trap. I will watch just like I will watch the drama Search. I hope both dramas don`t disappoint.

OCN has unveiled a photo from the script reading of “Dark Hole” (literal title), its upcoming Saturday-Sunday original drama.

“Dark Hole” is a thriller about a group of survivors who have to fight for their lives against mutants that are created when humans breathe mysterious dark smoke from a sinkhole.

At the script reading were director Kim Bong Joo, writer Jung Yi Do, and actors Kim Ok Bin, Lee Joon Hyuk, Im Won Hee, Kim Byung Gi, Kim Han Jong, Oh Yoo Jin, Kim Do Hoon, Lee Ha Eun, Song Sang Eun, and Park Geun Rok.

The actors brought to life the tension in the storyline as OCN attempts a “mutant survival” drama for the first time. Kim Ok Bin showed her character’s charismatic strength in the role of Lee Hwa Sun, a police detective. Lee Joon Hyuk immersed himself in his character, a tow truck driver named Yoo Tae Han who seems carefree on the outside but has a strong sense of justice.

Oh Yoo Jin plays Han Dong Rim, a student at the local high school who fights desperately not to fall into the clutches of those who want to use her for their own ends. Kim Do Hoon plays Lee Jin Suk, the local bully who torments Han Dong Rim, and Kim Han Jong plays Yoo Tae Han’s close friend and fellow tow truck driver Nam Young Sik.

Lee Ha Eun plays Yoon Saet Byul, a nurse at the local hospital who will help the people who fall into chaos when the mutants appear. Im Won Hee plays Park Soon Il, a sergeant in the local patrol division. Park Geun Rok rounds out the cast as Choi Seung Tae, a teacher at the local high school who tries to save people even in the midst of a panic.

Screenwriter Jung Yi Do (who worked on “Save Me” and “Strangers From Hell”) said, “It’s to be expected, but the script feels so different when actors begin to perform. These words that existed only on paper have had life breathed into them.”

by tccolb

0004361602_001_20210302082013768.jpg

The cast and crew of OCN’s upcoming action-thriller Dark Hole were recently gathered for the drama’s first script reading, led by actors Kim Ok-bin (Arthdal Chronicles) and Lee Jun-hyuk (Forest of Secrets 2).

The story sets off when a sink hole appears in a small town, which seems to be the source of mysterious black smoke. The smoke infects anyone who breathes it in and the small town soon declares a state of emergency as those infected start turning into monsters. What ensues is a battle for survival as our main characters, try to help the uninfected escape and put an end to the crisis. Namely, hardened police detective Kim Ok-bin and laid back tow-truck driver Lee Jun-hyuk.

The supporting cast includes a mix of veterans and rookie actors, such as fellow tow-truck driver Kim Han-jong (Hell Is Other People), high school student Oh Yoo-jin (True Beauty), neighborhood gangster Kim Do-hoon (Doctor John), and nurse Lee Ha-eun (The Good Detective).

 

More familiar faces are police corporal Im Won-hee (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2), high school teacher Park Geun-rok (Designated Survivor: 60 Days), chairman Kim Byung-ki (9.9 Billion Won Woman), and village shaman Song Sang-eun (Private Lives) among others.

Dark Hole is being planned to be 12 episodes long, with scripts written by Jung Yi-do (Hell Is Other People) and directing helmed by film director Kim Bong-joo (The Phone). The drama is currently still in production and is set to air weekends on OCN in April 2021.
