‘Hot-blooded Priest’ reveals its cast
The drama, which is scheduled to air in the first half of next year, is a comedy crime series that features an investigation being conducted by a priest and a police officer into the murder case of an old bride. The plot will also feature corrupt police officers, a pseudo-religion and the exploitation of welfare agencies.
Kim Nam-gil will play the hot-tempered priest Kim Hae-il, and Kim Sung-kyun will play the role of Gu Dae-yeong, a slow-witted police officer who likes to impress others with his speech. The two characters partner up to solve the mysterious murder.
Meanwhile, Lee will play the role of Park Gyeong-seon, a smart and zealous prosecutor who works at Seoul’s Central District Prosecutors’ Office.
The drama is written by Park Jae-bum, who was behind the 2013 KBS series “Good Doctor” and KBS2’s 2017 series “Good Manager,” and will be directed by Lee Myoung-woo, known for the SBS dramas “Punch” (2014-15) and “Whisper” (2017).
