Choi Jin-hyuk (Rugal) and Park Joo-hyun (Extracurricular) are both cast as leads in the upcoming KBS drama “Zombie Detective” (working title).
The comedy drama is about a zombie-turned-detective Kim Moo-young (played by Choi Jin-hyuk), who lives with humans in an effort to find more about his past. He has been resurrected for two years without his past memory, and does everything to mimick the human mannerisms in order to survive. He now works as a private detective where he meets the female lead Gong Seon-ji (played by Park Joo-hyun).
