Kim Jae Wook, Kim Dong Wook and Jung Eun Chae Cast in OCN Exorcism Drama

Kim Dong Wook, Kim Jae Wook, and Jung Eun Chae will be appearing in the upcoming OCN drama tentatively titled “Hand: The Guest.” It is written by Kwon So Ra and Seo Jae Woon and directed by Kim Hong Sun, who had worked with Kim Jae Wook briefly on another OCN drama, “Voice.”

“Hand: The Guest” tells the story of a psychic, a priest, and a detective who solve bizarre crimes that occur throughout Korean society, banishing the evil in people’s hearts through a combination of Korean-style exorcism and shamanism.

Kim Dong Wook will play the lead character, Yoon Hwa Pyung, born with psychic powers. He uses his powers to act as a shaman and has a strong commitment to exorcising evil spirits, but his free-spirited nature hides a dark heart. Kim Jae Wook plays Choi Yoon, a cold and cynical priest whose strong will and sense of evil make him an ideal exorcist. However, he shows little emotion and drives people away with his unapproachable personality. Jung Eun Chae plays Kang Gil Young, a detective in the serious crime squad, whose passion and laser focus on the job at hand put veteran male detectives to shame. She has a tough but easygoing personality and does not believe in the supernatural, though she soon gets embroiled in the world of exorcisms when she meets Choi Yoon and Yoon Hwa Pyung.

“Hand: The Guest” is expected to premiere sometime in September.

Taeyong interview with Allure on his hair and makeup styling

Taeyong of NCT Opens Up to Allure About the Importance of Hair and Makeup in K-Pop
By Devon Ableman

  When a singer changes up their look after a while and releases new music, the moment is often called a comeback. Mononymous divas Madonna, Rihanna, and Cher are iconic testaments to this periodic phenomenon. For Taeyong, a member of the Korean pop group NCT, dyeing his hair a new color or mixing up the way he does his makeup is basically a monthly occurrence. He’s a chameleon, taking on a new look every time NCT or one of its subunits drops a new music video. This year alone, he’s transformed into at least five different people.
