‘The Uncanny Counter’: What the Cast Has Been up to Since the Popular Fantasy K-Drama


K-dramas have risen to immense popularity on a global scale, leading to the development of second seasons. In 2020, Netflix and OCN debuted the fantasy K-drama, The Uncanny Counter, with an impressive leading cast. After its success, the drama plans to develop a second season. Actor Jo Byeong-kyu, Kim SeJeong, Yoo Jung-sang, and Yeom Hye-ran lead the drama, but what have they been up to?

Yeom Hye-ran joined ‘The Uncanny Counter’ in the matriarchal role of Choo Mae-ok

The Uncanny Counter focuses on the co-existence of the afterlife and the human world. The afterlife tasks counters to vanquish rogue and dangerous demons with the help of superhuman abilities. Actor Yeom starred as Mae-ok, the team’s motherly figure with healing abilities.

Before the fantasy drama, Yeom started her on-screen career in 2003. After The Uncanny Counter, Yeom has starred in very few dramas. She played the role of Oh Seon-ja in the Netflix K-drama Juvenile Justice. Her character is the Director of Pureum Youth Recovery Center.

Yeom also had a small cameo in Alchemy of Souls. But in 2022, the actor did more work on the big screen, having starred in Special Delivery, the musical movie Life Is Beautiful, and will star in the upcoming movie, Boys.
