The first episode of the Monday-Tuesday show will be aired in July, taking the spot of “Triangle.”

Jung will be playing a handsome, defiant prince who suffers from painful memories. Upon gaining a supernatural ability to see ghosts, Jung joins the night patrol rangers and carries out a series of heroic acts as a “ghostbuster,” ultimately realizing his true role as a royal prince.

“Jung was eager to take up the role since it is totally different from the ones that he has played so far,” a spokesperson of StarK Entertainment told MBN. “This is a fresh character for Jung, but he is more excited than nervous.”
