[Orion's Daily Ramblings] "Voice" PD Kim Hong-seon-I Planning Religion-themed Crime Drama "The Guest - Drama"

2018/04/12 | 752 views | Permalink

I was highly excited over the potential validity of this lonely piece of news hidden away in the Daum feed, but upcoming OCN drama "The Guest - Drama" does have two buzzkill elements about it. Regardless, the channel seems to be into its religious themes lately, so I suppose this would become the latest installment.

"The Guest - Drama" (working title) is a drama about a psychic, a priest and a detective who tackle crimes committed by strange powers in the country. I'm not sure if the powers mentioned are of the supernatural variety, but if they are, that detective must struggle a lot. PD Kim Hong-seon-I ("Black", "Voice") is reportedly planning this for the second half of this year, and the casting process is currently underway.

Everything sounds exciting, so there must be a catch, right? Well, this will be written by the duo of Seo Jae-won and Kwon So-ra, whose previous joint project was "Entourage". I have never felt my excitement go limp faster. Granted, "Entourage" was their first work together, and the first one in general for writer Kwon So-ra, but it is just too terrible a credit to overlook.

Worrying writer pair aside, this could be a fun work if done well, and the combination of Korean shamanism, Christianity and crime hinted sounds interesting. Imagine the clashing that would happen between figures of different approaches to the otherworldly, and a detective hard-bound to our physical reality. At least that's what I hope we would get out of this.

For now, I will wait for more widely available news and hope that the writers had some sort of religious epiphany themselves, because I would like to think someone saw potential in them that was definitely not evident in "Entourage".
