Okay, so I started this when I was all obsessed with the vampire dramas that were coming out. “Vampire Prosecutor” debuted its first season in 2011. It stars Yun Jung Hoon (‘Mask,’ 2015) as Min Tae Yeon.
Synopsis: Min Tae Yeon isn’t your typical vampire or your typical prosecutor. Rather than drinking blood from innocent strangers, he opts for blood sold on the black market in the posh bars of Seoul. He also has the uncanny ability to tell where the victims of his cases died—and how they died—based on their blood’s smell and taste. The only person who knows of his secret ability is Detective Hwang Soon Bum (Lee Won Jong). They end up working together in a new joint department between police and prosecutors solving murder cases. They are joined by rookie prosecutor Yoo Jung In (Lee Young Ah), and intern Cho Dong Man (Kim Joo Young). Together, they solve murder cases, and Tae Yeon must use his “powers” to find leads on seemingly unsolvable cases. The one mystery he can’t solve is this: who was the vampire serial killer that made him who he is?
This is a fast paced drama, which is good because I’ve watch law-procedural dramas before and they can get so boring and lengthy.
I’m actually not too far into this one. I stopped because I was busy and the plot was getting ho hum. I know it’s only been three episodes, but that ‘I-can’t-tell-you-you-can’t-handle-my-secret’ and ‘ditzy-girl-detective-who-is-dumb-but-really-smart’ was getting old. I suffered an entire series of that **cough cough** ‘Masked Prosecutor’ **cough cough**. So I took a break and picked it back up.
I’m not finished yet. However, while I was watching it recently, I realized that the bartender that knows Tae Yeon’s secret and is also a vampire IS PARK JAE HOON FROM ‘FEELINGS,’ I was so excited, y’all don’t even know.
Also, When I saw Lee Won Jong I was pretty pumped too because he was actually in ‘Masked Prosecutor’ as the wrestling coach. but that is for another post.
My fangirling aside, even though I’m not finished with this drama, I feel like it has a lot of potential, which is why I wrote about it.
Overall, it’s an okay drama. The plot gets spotty in certain episodes, but the characters are worth watching for.
