After an impressive turn as an emotionally abused doctor in Beautiful Mind, Jang Hyuk is returning to the small screen as a detective in OCN’s Voice. Here’s the synopsis from AsianWiki:
Moo Jin-Hyuk (Jang Hyuk) was a popular detective who solved major cases, but after his wife was murdered by a serial killer his life spiraled down. He is filled with guilt that he was not able to protect his wife and he secretly looks for her killer.
Meanwhile, Kang Kwon-Joo (Lee Ha-Na) graduated at police academy with top marks. She began to work at an emergency 112 call center. Working there, a brutal murder case takes place and her father/police sergeant went to the crime scene. Her father is killed there and Kwon-Joo hears what happened over the phone. Afterwards, she goes to the U.S. to study and comes back to Korea as a professional voice profiler.
Detective Jin-Hyuk and Kang Kwon-Joo solve cases together. Chasing a serial killer responsible for the deaths of their family member.
I don’t know about you guys but this is right up my alley. I love couples (romantic or otherwise) working together and I love the extra element of her being the voice in his ear. I’m not a fan of Lee Ha Na’s acting but I’m willing to give her a chance in this drama.
I enjoyed the last OCN drama I watched (38 Task Force) and as far as I’m concerned, previously offering Bae Doo Na the lead female role indicates the quality of drama they are aiming for. I will absolutely check this one out.
