Yes. All the yeses. Every of the yes. This is casting goodness right here, and I can't wait to have Jung Kyung-ho, Park Sung-woong and Go Ah-sung grace my screen in an interesting backwards time travel story. The actors have confirmed their roles in "Life on Mars", a retro investigative drama about a detective from 2018 finding himself in 1988 and trying to recover his memory. We have character descriptions and a few words from the actors as well.
Jung Kyung-ho plays Han Tae-joo, a detective who suddenly wakes up in 1988. He is a meticulous man who places evidence above people. This retro story begins when Tae-joo starts investigating a serial murder case with the detectives from 1988. The actor has commented "I enjoyed the original series and the script. I am glad to be working with director Lee Jeong-hyo of "Heartless City" again, and I think that I can feel the same happiness I felt back then".
The main detective of the past is Park Sung-woong's Gang Dong-cheol, a rough, but humane "analogue detective" from the 80s. He ignores the evidence and goes with his own gut feeling, but he has good intuition. He becomes a partner to and clashes with Tae-joo, who uses the unfamiliar method of scientific investigation. Park Sung-woon's comment reads "I may be a bit selfish, but I instantly knew I wanted to be this character with a big heart named Dong-cheol, and express him well. This is my first time working with director Lee Jeong-hyo and actor Jung Kyung-ho. I want to start filming quickly. I am preparing my work with joy".
We need a lady to these gents, and she sounds like a great investigator waiting to flourish! Go Ah-sung plays ace investigator Yoon Na-young. Unlike her sweet appearance, she possesses an enthusiastic personality. Na-young became an investigator, because she wanted to be like the women detectives she read about in mystery novels, but reality is very different. She longs for the day when she will be able to assist in investigations, and analyze data. However, her voice is finally heard by Tae-joo, and she starts to grow as a profiler. The actress has reportedly said "This is a fun work, and I am excited to play a police officer for the first time. I will work hard on this new challenge. I ask for your interest and expectation".
