[by Kim Young Shin] Lee Joon will transform into an alluring creature in OCN’s new drama ‘Vampire Detective’.
In the show, he will personate Yoon San, a private detective who suddenly became a vampire. While solving various cases requested by his clients, he will also discover the secrets and mysteries around him.
In the trailer video, the actor’s strong appearance draws the attention of the viewers at once. His golden eyes and cold facial expression create charismatic and attractive image. His character’s eyes change in color, from the common dark brown to marvelous gold. Lee Joon is much anticipated for playing such a rare role. Particularly, his line “it is boring to just suck on blood” brings curiosities about how he will solve cases.
Moreover, other casts add expectations to the show. Yong Gu Hyung, plays Oh Jung Se, an old friend of Yoon San, and Lee Se Young, takes the role of Han Gyeo Wool, a woman who works with the two guys in the detective agency by chance.
Lee Seung Hoon, the producer of the drama said “Lee Joon focused on making the character with the writer and the director because he wanted to play his own definition of vampire, not just any other cliché. Lee Joon added details to vampire Yoon San, like the heart-breaking experience from his past, his charisma and cheerful character. Please look forward to it.”
