All five counters take part in a great battle for OCN’s “The Uncanny Counter”!
Based on a Webtoon, “The Uncanny Counter” is about demon hunters, so-called “counters”, who dress up as employees of a noodle restaurant and hunt demons who have come to earth in search of eternal life.
In the sixth episode, the counters began piecing together the clues to the incident seven years ago. Ga Mo Tak (Yoo Joon sang) confirmed that Noh Chang Gyu (Jeon Jin Oh) was the person who tried to kill him by Do Ha Na (Kim Sejeong) psychometric powers. He also found out that Noh Hang Gyu (Kim Seung Hoon), Noh Chang Gyu’s older brother, was also wanted for particular violence. Now the counters must find the link between the brothers and the murder that Ga Mo Tak is investigating.
In the stills for the upcoming December 19 episode, all five counters are – So Moon (Jo byeong gyu), Do Ha Na, Ga Mo Tak, Choo Mae Ok (Yeom Hye ran) and Choi Jang Mool (Ahn Suk Hwan) – prepare for a fight with Noh Chang Gyu who does the dirty work for the Taesin Group. The gang is armed with steel pipes and other formidable weapons, but the counterattacks have their superpowers to defend and attack. Ga Mo Tak turns Noh Chang Gyu’s wrist around with his superpower, while Choo Mae Ok uses her healing powers to immobilize her opponent. In addition, Choi Jang Mool shows his charisma in his trademark maneuver, in which knives are broken with bare hands.
A production staff source stated, “In episode seven, all of the switches will move as a team. Please look forward to how they use their individual personalities and skills to create even more exciting action scenes. ”
OCN also shared Jo Byeong Gyu’s involvement in stills of an epic fight scene between him and Ji Chung Shin (Lee Hong Nae). In the sixth episode, So Moon was overwhelmed to learn that his parents had not been killed in an accident, but had been deliberately attacked. With the help of Do Ha Na, he stepped into his past memories and relived the night of the accident. After learning that Ji Chung Shin was responsible, the demon who owned Ji Chung Shin temporarily separated from his host in order to enter So Moon’s memories.
In the new stills, Jo Byeong Gyu and Lee Hong Nae fight against each other in the pouring rain. Jo Byeong Gyu’s gaze and violent beating show So Moon’s determination to avenge the deaths of his parents, while Lee Hong Nae causes chills with the cold and murderous expression on his face. There’s also a shot of the two in an unnamed location that doesn’t seem to be in So Moon’s memories, which raises expectations the two of them might live up to in this day and age.
An OCN source stated, “Jo Byeong Gyu is a brilliant actor whose gaze and gestures change from the moment the cameras start rolling. He threw his whole body into filming this action scene with Lee Hong Nae. Please look forward to what the two actors created with their own hands in the pouring rain. ”
This episode of “The Uncanny Counter” will air December 19 at 10:30 pm KST.
