tvN Asia Reveals “Express Drama” When the Devil Calls Your Name


tvN Asia has revealed When the Devil Calls Your Name—starring Jung Kyung-ho, Park Sung-woong and Lee Seol—as its latest 24-hour express drama.

Inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Faust, the fantasy drama depicts the story of Ha-rib (Kyung-ho), a songwriter chasing after money and fame who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for ten years of youth and success. The series is slated to premiere on tvN on August 1, airing every Thursday and Friday at 9:45 p.m. in Singapore and Malaysia and at 8:45 p.m. in Indonesia.

The drama is paired with English, Chinese, Bahasa Malaysia and Bahasa Indonesia subtitles.

“Although this is a fantasy drama, the theme is highly related to human imaginations and desires, so it will definitely strike a chord in audience’s heart,” said Kyung-ho.

Sung-woong, who plays the role of Devil Ryu in the drama, added: “Though the theme of this drama is relatively heavy, I will try my best to illustrate the ideas in a more comical and relaxing way.”
