It is a good day in Dramaland when such news pops up, and my excitement for "When the Devil Calls Your Name" is now getting more solid footing with these casting confirmations. The upcoming fantasy human melodrama is about a star composer whose soul contract with the Devil is about to expire.
The story follows the protagonist, Ha Rip (Jung Kyung-ho), after he finds out that all of the success he has enjoyed has robbed a young woman of her talent and life. It is about the restoration of their lives, and the lives of those around them, and about discovering the essence of life in the process.
Character information remains largely unchanged for these roles, with Ha Rip being the man who is in a battle against time for his very soul in a story following the motif of Goethe's Faust. Park Sung-woong plays Mo Tae-kang, a top actor famous for his "devilish method acting". They're not being subtle with the twist here, as Tae-kang enjoys this fame from obscurity due to being a body possessed by the Devil, the owner of Ha Rip's contract.
Lee Seol's leading woman, Yi-kyeong, is a down on her luck, unknown singer-songwriter. She joins Ha Rip's side and enters a brave new world, but she doesn't know if her new life is heaven, or hell. Lee El plays Ji Seo-yeong, the CEO of Ha Rip's agency, Soul Entertainment, and a trusted colleague and adviser for the artist.
"When the Devil Calls Your Name" will be helmed by PD Min Jin-gi ("Circle", "Golden Tower"), and penned by writer Noh Hye-yeong ("Please Come Back, Mister", "How to Use Guys with Secret Tips"). It will premiere sometime in the first half of this year, which is wonderful news for my raging excitement.
