The Worst of Evil will take us back to 1990’s Seoul when a new recreational drug named “Gangnam Crystal” has taken over the city’s liveliest venues. To pin down its source, a rural police officer named Park Jun Mo, played by Ji Chang Wook, joins a special undercover unit to infiltrate the gang behind the spread of this illegal drug.
Keeping his new assignment a secret to his wife and fellow officer, Yu Eui Jeong (played by Lim Se Mi), he’s surprised to find out that she has also volunteered on the assignment and shares a mysterious past with the city’s drug lord. Torn between his dedication to his job and keeping his wife safe, Park Jun Mo’s actions will make up the thrill-seeking scenes to watch out for in this series.
Wi Ha Jun, from the global hit Squid Game, will portray the city’s new gang leader, Jung Gi Cheul. A former DJ who seized control of a gang and began pushing the drug in the city’s night clubs. The hunt to get him will surely be the story’s pivotal highlight.
