In ooh that looks like fuunnnn…. Today I learned about the upcoming drama Amazing Rumor. As we’re far enough along to have the trifecta of character stills, posters, AND a teaser? Turns out I might be the last one to have heard the rumor abut Amazing Rumor.
Sorry, its been a day and I couldn’t resist.
With a teaser poster like the above, how can you not at least pause and go “What is this?” and I’m happy to say, I’m glad I took the moment to check it out…and not just because apparently, this happens.
Nooo…. she says with shifty eyes, no, she’s only interested in these pictures because of her dedication to home workouts. I mean, this looks like a good addition to arm day, right?
I am, actually, kidding. It’s the premise that caught me in a second as this is a show about a bunch of demon hunters who come to earth with the task of catching evil spirits, under the guise of a bunch of employees of a neighborhood noodle shop.
See? Doesn’t Amazing Rumor sound like fun?
But wait, it’s even better, take the actual plot:
Tells the story of demon hunters called Counters who come to earth under the guise of being employees at a noodle restaurant in order to capture evil spirits that have returned to earth in pursuit of eternal life. So Moon is the youngest of the Counters. After suffering from a mysterious car accident as a child, he eventually becomes a central figure among the Counters. Do Ha Na has the ability to sense the locations of evil spirits, even those that are hundreds of kilometers away. She can also read memories of others through touch and works with So Moon to do away with evil spirits. Ga Mo Tak is a Counter with incredible strength. He’s a former police officer who lost his memory seven years ago after an accident and is unable to stand idle in the face of injustice. Ga Mo Tak is also So Moon’s mentor. Chu Mae Ok is a Counter with healing abilities. Outwardly, she’s the chef of the noodle restaurant, but among the Counters, she is the emotional pillar of the group. Choi Jang Mool is the oldest Counter. He’s in charge of all of the Counters’ expenses, and he is a living legend among the Counters in Korea.
Demon hunters under a budget? For some reason that particular part makes me laugh. I am a little confused as to where the demon hunters from. Did they use to be alive? Better versions of the spirits that come to earth that they’re hunting? I mean they expressly called out several members who have mysterious or painful human pasts. Or perhaps they were recruited? I see a back alley demon hunter whispering “Hey you, yeah you with the mysterious and/or painful past, want a job? I mean, you’ll have to become a demon hunter, but there’s a great dental plan.”
From the teaser (below), it gives the idea that Jo Byeong Gyu as So Moon is being recruited. I could be totally wrong, but that’s the vibe I’m getting.
I love the idea that these guys actually go out and fight…spirits in red tracksuits. I need this to happen in every single episode, please.
Luckily, since I’m late to this Amazing Rumor mill, I don’t have that long to wait for it as the show is set to premiere in November!
