Kim Nam Gil has been confirmed to star in the SBS drama “Those Who Read Hearts Of Evil”. Kim Nam Gil will play the role of profiler Song Ha Young who works at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. A profiler, especially a criminal profiler, is someone who builds a psychological profile of the suspect based on the available evidence. They collect data on similar crimes and misdemeanors to analyze and create a profile of the suspect which can then be useful in catching the criminal. Thus, the title of the drama indicates a “reading” in people who have committed crimes. The drama is an adaptation of a novel written by writer Go Na Moo and profiler Kwon Il Young. Kwon Il Young became South Korea’s first profiler in the year 2000. Thus, the drama will focus on the beginning of the journey of the first profilers who must have worked at a time when the terms like profiler and psychopath were unknown. Actress Kim So Jin will play the female lead role of Yoon Tae Goo while Jin Seon Kyu will also have a major role.
Kim Nam Gil is a renowned actor with films like ‘Pandora’ and ‘Memoir Of a Murderer’ as well as the dramas ‘Queen Seondeok’ and ‘The Fiery Priest’.
