It’s October and Halloween is coming up!!! Now I don’t know about you but I love me some supernatural dramas and movies. I won’t lie I love a great scare but what I want to talk about it Vampire Prosecutor. As the title says its about a vampire prosecutor but its not your average vampire story.
Yeon Jung Hoon. This man is just killing everyone with his sexy killer smile and fast moves. The story starts with him, Min Tae Yeon, chasing a criminal in his car which ends up with him in a accident. It is through this accident that he is bitten and turned into a vampire. As a prosecutor he refuses to drink blood from people and chooses to drink blood from the black market. He is assigned to Prosecutor and Police joint Special Investigation Team.
Detective Hwang Soon Bum (Lee Won Jong) is the only one who knows Prosecutor Min’s secret and ends up being assigned to the new team.
Yoo Jung In (Lee Young Ah) a rookie Prosecutor assigned to his team. She may seem like a average person but has a past which she does not want to talk about.
Last and not least, Choi Dong Man (Kim Joo Young) the rookie intern assigned to the team.
This drama has 12 episodes total which look at various cases with the main story evolving around Prosecutor Min looking for the vampire who turned him and the vampire who is kill people. Bodies keep turning up and he makes a connection that the vampire is kill bad people. Even though those people were bad he never wanted them to die. Then there is the case of his adopted sister, who was killed by a vampire seven years ago. From the beginning he made a connection from his sisters case to the vampires victims only to find out that it was his own friend, the chief Prosecutor Jang Chul Oh, who bit his sister and turned her into a vampire. He is pushed to the brink when he is accused by the Chief Prosecutor of being the criminal in which he goes rouge to find his sister and bring the Chief Prosecutor to justice.
I would live to say this this has a similar feel to American shows in which each episode don’t necessarily relate to each other but has bits and piece that connect the story. I was a little late in watching the first season but finished it in two days (mind you it was the weekday and I had to work). Any who the picture above depicts how amazing Prosecutor Min is when he fights! Although he seems to push people away from him through out the drama his relationships with each team member starts to get closer.
I also loved that the romance between Prosecutor Min and Yoo is on the down low yet the interaction between the two makes you giddy like a two year old. I love this couple because they are not ordinary as in they don’t have romantic scenes every episode. When they talk it is more like flirting. When they fist started working together he was somewhat distant and cold to her but he started to talk to her and made her his partner in crime. I love Prosecutor Yoo because she is not a weak damsel in distress. She know how to fight and she has a strong head. Her father is a thug so she grew up with a strong attitude that doesn’t take shit from others. She also seems to be a loner without friends. She is very similar to Prosecutor Min in that they can be cold to other people and have secrets that they don’t want other people to know. I can see why she is attracted to him and him to her. There seems to be hints that this couple will never be but I have hopes that it will.
This is strictly just about Season 1 of Vampire Prosecutor. I am watching season 2 right now and will recap when it is done. There are still five episodes to go!
