I think we can all agree that Wi Ha Joon’s hairstyle is a lot better than oppa’s in this drama. :sweatingbullets: That’s why your eyes draw to him.

 

@backstreetboysfan Those are interesting stills. Looks like oppa and his on-screen wife have at least one kid. In that still that’s clearly a child’s bed. Wonder if the kid has disappeared or died?!?! :scream: 
 

It’s always Choi Jin Hyuk oppa who has roles with dead wives and/or kids. Looks like Ji Chang Wook oppa might be next. :bawling:

On August 14th, Disney+ revealed the release date of the upcoming action thriller The Worst of Evil. The K-drama, starring Ji Chang WookWi Ha Joon, and Im Se Mi, is set to release on September 27th. 

Set in the 1990s, The Worst of Evil is a story of the journey of police officer Joon Mo (Ji Chang Wook), who infiltrates a Korean-Chinese-Japanese drug trade syndicate centered in Gangnam, aiming to dismantle its operations.

Accompanying the announcement of the release, a teaser poster has also been released.  

Set against the backdrop of Gangnam, the poster gives the retro vibe of the 1990s, showing Ki Chul (Wi Ha Joon), the mastermind behind the criminal organization, and Joon Mo (Ji Chang Wook), who is undercover for the drug investigation. Both exude an air of charismatic determination as they confidently walk the bustling streets of Gangnam, etching a lasting impression.

 

wJ0Oob_2f.png

 

Of particular note is the impeccable transformation of the two actors. 

Ji Chang Wook, playing the role of Park Joon Mo, who is tasked with infiltrating the Gangnam syndicate, is poised to deliver a tour de force performance, perhaps the most compelling of his career. The actor's assertion that he poured his heart into the role adds to the fervent excitement surrounding the drama.

Wi Ha Joon, who plays Jung Ki Chul, the enigmatic leader of the Gangnam syndicate, masterfully portrays the multifaceted nature of the character. From his unwavering determination to achieve success at any cost, to his unshakable loyalty, Wi Ha Joon's performance breathes soul into the character of Ki Chul.

Actress Im Se Mi comes as Yoo Eui Jung, Park Joon Mo's (Ji Chang Wook) wife, and a narcotics officer. 

The Worst of Evil is directed by Han Dong Wook. Writer Jeong Min Seok wrote the screenplay.

is wi ha joon the ML? 

my eyes naturally draw to him lol...

 

 

I had the same experience. :D

Both are leads but the story is about Ji Chang Wook`s character. He is the good guy so he will play the first lead. The poster makes sense. Wi Ha Joon plays the leader of the organization and Ji Chang Wook is under him in the hierarchy. He infiltrated the organization so he is not prominent but he is still important. He is the hero.

While Ji Chang Wook is expected to deliver his most intense acting performance to date, Wi Ha Joon is said to have flawlessly captured the intricate layers of his mob boss role, from his determination and drive to achieve success at any cost to his trust and loyalty to the members of his organization.

Reflecting on his filming experience, Ji Chang Wook commented, “I hold no regrets as I gave my all during the filming process. It is a project that I had an absolute blast filming.”

“The Worst of Evil” will be released on September 27.
