Yeo Jin Goo will be starring together with Shin Ha Kyun in the upcoming JTBC drama ‘Monster’ after the latest hit drama ‘Hotel Del Luna’.
“Monster,” which will mark Yeo Jin Goo’s first drama since tvN’s “Hotel Del Luna,” is a new psychological thriller about two men who are willing to break rules and the law in their pursuit of a serial killer. In order to uncover the killer’s identity, they must look deeper at the hidden sides of the people involved in the case, repeatedly asking themselves, “Who is the monster—is it you? Is it me? Is it us?”
Shin Ha Kyun will star in the drama as the unpredictable Lee Dong Shik, a former detective who has since been demoted to doing menial work at a local police station. His peaceful life is turned upside down when Han Joo Won, a highly capable detective who seems to have everything (played by Yeo Jin Goo), becomes his partner—and when an incident echoing a serial killer case from 20 years ago shakes up their village.
Explaining why he had chosen the drama for his next project, Yeo Jin Goo remarked, “I was drawn to the unique vibe that makes ‘Monster’ different from other dramas in the thriller genre, as well as the realistic characters and the emotions of the story. I think I’ll be able to show viewers a new side of myself through the character of Han Joo Won, so I’m excited and looking forward to it.”
Shin Ha Kyun similarly commented, “I was intrigued by the script and its characters. I’ll work hard to create a great drama with the production team and the other actors, so please show us a lot of anticipation.”
“Monster” is currently slated to premiere sometime in the first half of 2021.
