Lee Dong-wook, Wi Ha-joon in action-packed “Bad and Crazy”

In the 30-second sneak peek, Lee Dong-wook plays the  role of a charming rogue police inspector Ryu Su-yeol who is left helpless in his encounters with the crazy motorcycle rider played by Wi Ha-joon. Donning a helmet, Wi rides recklessly on the streets, leaving pillion rider Lee Dong-wook screaming. When they meet again, Lee Dong-wook is in a bathrobe in a back alley, and Wi lifts his ride over Lee in a shocking and dangerous move. The seemingly insane Wi Ha-joon wheelies to shatter a window of the car that Lee Dong-wook is in, leaving him shaken.

While they can’t seem to stand each other, Lee and Wi actually end up rocking a seesaw together. “Can we respect each other’s privacy?” asks Lee Dong-wook in a scene that reveals their inner child. Viewers are left to wonder about their relationship. However, in moments of danger, they know that they have to work together and count on each other. As the assertion “Only you and I can do this!” and the question “Us both?” suggest, the two share an unshakeable bond.

“Bad and Crazy” is a heroic drama that follows capable but bad cop Ryu Su-yeol regaining his humanity after meeting the righteous but crazy ‘K’. The iQiyi Original K-series is set to premiere on December 17, with new episodes simulcasting with Korea on Fridays and Saturdays at 9:50pm (SGT), globally across 191 territories on the iQiyi International app and www.iQ.com
