Vampire Prosecutor (Hangul: 뱀파이어 검사) is a Korean Drama which aired on cable network OCN, starring Yun Jung Hoon as the titular character. Season 1 aired in late 2011, season 2 is scheduled for 2012.

Prosecutor Min Tae Yeon is a reluctant vampire. As he uses his abilities in his day job, his main goal is to solve a 7-year-old murder in which the victim was close to him and the culprit was undoubtedly another vampire.

Tae Yeon is asked to set up a special taskforce to investigate unusual homicides in the Seoul area. To this end, he is given several team members:

  • Hwang Soon Bum, a grizzled veteran detective who knows Tae Yeon's secret;
  • Yoo Jung In, a young female investigator with a gung-ho attitude and a shadowy past; and
  • Cha Dong Man, the young enthusiatic intern and resident computer nerd.

The team is under the mantle of Chief Prosecutor Jang Chul Oh, who sometimes clashes with Prosecutor Tae Yeon. Together, they try to make Seoul safer for the living and the undead.

Jung In: (about her gangster father) He’s the bad guy. He’s someone I have to lock away. But when the reason he did those bad things is because of me, I can’t call him the bad guy. I can’t even hate him.
