[Orion's Daily Ramblings] Kim Byung-choon Joins "Bad Papa" as Chief Inspector and Lonesome Dad

2018/06/22 | 434 views | Permalink

"Bad Papa" has slowly been adding to its cast, and the latest one to join is yet another father with woes, played by actor Kim Byung-choon. Hero Yoo Ji-cheol's (Jang Hyuk) involvement with the law seems to be a central element in the series, given its casting so far, and this papa ally might provide our Ji-cheol with some good influence.

Kim Byung-choon's agency, Jung Entertainment, announced that the actor has been cast in "Bad Papa" as chief inspector Park Min-sik. Min-sik is the head of the investigations division, but he's also a "goose dad", meaning a man who financially supports his wife and child's living in an English-speaking country for the sake of the child's education. Although he always gets into trouble because of Ji-cheol, he stills feels sorry for our hero.

Suffering fathers unite? I do hope that the drama will not just be about action and some mystery, superhero-making substance. Korean drama rarely tackles fatherhood as a central idea without revenge, action or some other form of machismo grandeur on a pedestal thrown in. Perhaps a show about a fighter is not the place to see a different take on masculinity, but I'm shamelessly hopeful. I look forward to meeting "Bad Papa" in September, on MBC.
