[News] Bad Guy to be aired in Japan this September





The SBS TV series Bad Guy in which Kim Nam Gil plays the main role, will be broadcasted through NHK in Japan on September.





Good Story, the production company of Bad Guy, revealed that Bad Guy will be broadcasted in Japan for two weeks with a new title Enemy and Black, every 10:00 p.m. from September 4, from Monday to Thursday.

A source from Good Story said, “Japan’s largest media NHK decided to run the TV series on 10:00 p.m. Usually, Korean TV series are aired at midnight or later. We hope that Bad Guy will become a big hit and be recognized as a great TV product.”

Bad Guy will begin to air on October once more with subtitles.


admin's note:

I believe the revision of the main title from Bad Guy to Enemy and Black was because of the book adaptation of the said drama itself.

Apparently inspired by the character of Geon Wook is the ambitious Julien Sorel from Stendhal's classic novel "The Red and the Black / Le Rouge et le Noir" in 1830. Julien Sorel is an intelligent and ambitious man from a poor family. Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black), 1830, by Stendhal, is an historical psychological novel in two volumes,[1] chronicling a provincial young man’s attempts to socially rise beyond his plebeian upbringing with a combination of talent and hard work, deception and hypocrisy — yet who ultimately allows his passions to betray him.
