What is “Chronicles of Crime” About?
Unfortunately, since “Chronicles of Crime” is still under preparation, nothing much has been revealed about the Coupang Play drama just yet.
What we know so far is that “Chronicles of Crime” is a narrative fiction revolving around various crimes. It is a new Korean crime drama that centers around the different kinds of crimes and misdemeanors, and Jang Geun Suk will be playing as the main character.
Will he play a conflicted character like he was in “The Royal Gambler”? A prosecutor or lawyer with characteristics as cold as Hwang Tae Kyung in “You’re Beautiful” and Kang Moo Kyul in “Marry Me, Marry”? Or will he once again show his remarkable duality like what he performed in “Switch: Change the World” 4 years ago?
One thing is for sure: our famous Prince of Asia will soon be back on the small screen. And not only that, if he managed to maintain the same acting quality, Jang Geun Suk would make a great entrance in the Korean drama industry like a grand prince returning from the battlefield.
Where is Jang Geun Suk Now?
Finally, are you excited for this acting comeback of our famous original idol actor Jang Geun Suk in his new Korean crime drama?
Previously after his wonderful duality role in “Switch: Change the World”, Jang Geun Suk went into his mandatory military service. Due to his bipolar disorder, the Asia Prince had to serve as public service officer rather than participating in active duty.
Last year, the famous idol actor was supposed to play in a drama with SNSD Sooyoung, “Accidental Country Diary”. However, the project had to fall through because of various unfortunate circumstances happening before the filming began.
