What’s The Worst of Evil About?
Set in 1990s Seoul, this gangster drama on Disney+ unfolds the gripping tale of undercover police officer Park Joon Mo. Tasked with dismantling a notorious drug operation headquartered in Gangnam—the epicenter of illicit drug trafficking connecting Korea, China, and Japan—Joon Mo embarks on a perilous mission. The city’s nightclubs are buzzing with a trendy new drug known as “Gangnam Crystal,” and its elusive origin demands investigation. To combat the escalating illegal drug trade, Joon Mo is enlisted into an undercover police unit, delving deep into the criminal underworld to bring justice to the bustling streets of Seoul.
The Worst of Evil Cast: Who’s Starring in K-Drama?
Wi Ha-Joon is set to co-star alongside Ji Chang-Wook and Lim Se-mi. The rest of The Worst of Evil cast includes Woo Kang-min, Han Yi-jan, and Im Sung-jae.
Ji Chang Wook is donning his detective hat as Park Joon Mo. We will see him go in undercover action as he takes on the risky job of infiltrating the notorious Gangnam Alliance and cozying up to mob boss Jung Ki Chul. Now, if you’re used to Ji’s sunny and lighthearted on-screen persona from his 2022 Netflix webtoon, The Sound of Magic, you might be in for a pleasant surprise. He’s leaving the nice-guy roles behind and diving headfirst into some thrilling drama.
Wi Ha Joon steps into the shoes of Jung Ki Chul, the formidable kingpin of the Gangnam Alliance, the epicenter of Asia’s colossal drug empire. He doesn’t let anything stand in his way as he relentlessly pursues more power and success, even as he grapples with the haunting ghosts of his past. Wi is taking on a darker, more menacing criminal role as Gi-cheol, and it’s bound to make fans’ hearts race.
We’ll see Lim Se-mi, best known for her role in True Beauty, taking on the character of Yoo Eui Jung. She’s not just an elite narcotics officer but also happens to be Park Joon Mo’s wife and the first love of Jung Ki Chul. Yoo Eui Jung is a character with many layers yet strikes sharpness and warmth.
Who is Behind The Camera?
