KakaoTV’s upcoming drama The Crazy Guy In This District has unveiled a couple of playful stills of its lead stars.
The Crazy Guy in This District follows two people who meet while they are going through hard times in life. It stars Jung Woo as Noh Whee-oh, a detective with anger management issues. An event has turned him into a crazy guy who lashes out at everything. This will be the actor’s comeback project after eight years, following Reply 1994 in 2013. Starring opposite him is Oh Yeon-seo (Love With Flaws) as Lee Min-kyung, a career woman with trust issues, delusions, and obsessions.
In the released stills, the two actors show their playful side as they transform into their characters. In the first image, Whee-oh looks dissatisfied, with his fists clenched hard. He is unable to control his anger, as it gets triggered like a switch that turns on and off. In the other still, he is seen deep in thought. There are also images that show that, at times, he feels lost and defeated, and there are moments when he is on guard against those around him. He is aware that he has a ticking bomb of anger inside of him, and he does not know when it will explode.
Meanwhile, Min-kyung’s delusions would oftentimes trigger the anger of those around her. In the stills, she always wears a flower behind her ear and large sunglasses that would sometimes cover half of her face. Because of an accident, she is unable to trust people, which leads her to cut off communication with the world. Viewers are anticipating how Min-kyung’s tendency to induce anger will clash with Whee-oh’s thin patience and intense anger issues.
The Crazy Guy in This District will premiere on KakaoTV on May 24 at 7 p.m. KST.
