The investigation is getting into murkier territory in “Café Minamdang”!
Based on the popular web novel of the same name, “Café Minamdang” is a comedy-mystery starring Seo In Guk as Nam Han Joon, a fraudulent male shaman who used to be a profiler. Oh Yeon Seo stars as Han Jae Hee, a detective in the violent crimes unit who is passionate about justice. Kwak Si Yang plays Gong Soo Chul, a barista at Café Minamdang.
Previously, Lee Min Kyung (Hwang Woo Seul Hye) cooperated with Nam Han Joon in making an offer to Jung Chung Ki (Kwon Hyuk) in an attempt to bring her husband Shin Kyung Ho (Kim Won Sik) down from his position as vice president. When he realized what was going on, Shin Kyung Ho tried to murder Jung Chung Ki. At the height of tension, Nam Han Joon raised the stakes by offering Jung Chung Ki a chance to live at the cost of providing information on the people that tampered with evidence and put false blame on Nam Han Joon three years ago.
In newly released stills from the upcoming episode, Han Jae Hee and Jang Doo Jin (Jung Man Sik) are conversing while Nam Han Joon and Gong Soo Chul watch from afar. Although it’s unclear what the two detectives are talking about, their serious faces imply that the topic of matter is far from lighthearted. Furthermore, Nam Han Joon and Gong Soo Chul will feel a strange gaze watching them, and they will chase after the mysterious figure.
In another photo, Jang Doo Jin is caught buttering up to Nam Han Joon while stashing his business card into Nam Han Joon’s pocket. As someone on the same team as Jang Doo Jin, Han Jae Hee looks on with dissatisfaction. The fact that this all takes place at the crime scene of a serial killer adds to the intensity of the situation at hand.
The production team commented, “In the fifth episode, Nam Han Joon, Han Jae Hee, Gong Soo Chul, and Jang Doo Jin gather at the crime scene of a serial murder case. Please look forward to the intricate power play that will play out as well as their efforts to solve the case.”
Also in a previous episode, Nam Han Joon picked up a case involving a wealthy family that reported ghost appearances in their home. During a visit to their house, Nam Han Joon reasoned that a young boy must have been coming in and leaving through the sewage. He also assumed that the boy must have an accomplice. Suspicious of Nam Han Joon, Han Jae Hee accompanied him in investigating the sewage system and was shocked to find a hungry pair of siblings living alongside the burnt corpse of a woman.
In a separate set of stills, Nam Han Joon, Jang Doo Jin, and Na Kwang Tae (Jung Ha Joon) are at the hospital. Nam Han Joon listens intently with a fan in hand, while Jang Doo Jin puts his hands together, seeming to be already won over by Nam Han Joon’s abilities. Na Kwang Tae, the youngest member of the investigative team, also wears an adorable expression while firmly gripping onto a card.
The following episode will follow Nam Han Joon, Gong Soo Chul, Han Jae Hee, and Cha Do Won (Kwon Soo Hyun) as they go on a hunt for evidence regarding Choi Young Seob (Jang Hyuk Jin), the prime suspect in the murder case involving the high school student Kang Eun Hye.
The next episode of “Café Minamdang” will air on July 11 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
