The villains of tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “The Uncanny Counter 2: Counter Punch” (hereinafter referred to as “The Uncanny Counter 2”) have been unveiled.
“The Uncanny Counter 2” is a refreshing and exciting hero drama about “Counters”, who are demon hunters disguised as employees of a noodle restaurant, defeating demons on Earth. Based on the webtoon of the same name with 160 million cumulative views, “The Uncanny Counter” became the highest-rated OCN series so far and stood tall as a trustworthy hit IP.
Amid the public’s attention on the first broadcast of “The Uncanny Counter 2”, “The Uncanny Counter 2” unveiled 3 character posters and videos of Jin Seon Kyu (Ma Joo Seok), Kang Ki Young (Pil Kwang) and Kim Hieora (Gelli) on July 4th.
Attention is drawn to Ma Joo Seok, a benefactor of So Mun (Jo Byung Gyu) who screams with anger that explodes first. What catches the eye is his unmeasurable speed and power. After evil spirits Pil Kwang and Gelli appear in front of Ma Joo Seok, who was spending happy days with his beloved wife Min Ji (Hong Ji Hee), Ma Joo Seok’s life is shattered.
From the line “No one forgives. So, you guys can never be forgiven“, viewers can feel Ma Joo Seok’s explosive anger and desperate feelings. Ma Joo Seok is still standing in the gray area between good and evil. As you can see in the line “Tell me, tell me the truth you know“, questions are growing about the truth Ma Joo Seok will face and what the unmeasurable ability he will show as a revenger of anger.
At the same time, attention is focused on Pil Kwang and Gelli’s evil abilities. The supernatural power of the sexy evil spirit Pil Kwang with fatal charm is psychokinesis like So Mun. In particular, Pil Kwang fills 100% of the speed and power categories. Pil Kwang’s absolute evil force and evil spirits’ cruel and dangerous charm are shown, drawing attention.
In particular, the fierce aura of the villains through their bloodshed, screams, and smiles. The action scenes are expected to thrill viewers as the bad guys effortlessly overpower the Counters without weapons and commit murders.
Finally, Gelli’s bare face as a villain who enjoys murdering is revealed through lines, such as “I will tear you apart with my own hands” and “If you knew I was crazy, you should have been more careful”. Gelli is raising fans’ curiosity as she possesses the ability to read others’ minds and memories just like Counter Do Ha Na (Kim Se Jeong).
Above all, the unique silhouette and body movements of Kim Hieora as a villain when threatening the lives of others with sharp attacks like an awl, and the evil charm of scratching, stabbing, cutting, killing, and flying make herald an intense acting transformation.
Netizens showed enthusiastic responses to the preview, saying “The lineup is unbelievable”, “Kim Hieora did well in ‘The Glory’. I can see her amazing performance in this drama even in the short preview”, “I’ve never seen this image of Kang Ki Young before”, “I’m looking forward to the first broadcast”, etc.
