Yoon Hyun-min, Choi Jin-hyuk form detective duo for OCN’s Tunnel
After his unexpected release from mandatory army service (due to a severe knee injury), Choi Jin-hyuk (Pride and Prejudice), who has been away from the drama scene to recover his health until recently, confirmed his comeback project, OCN’s fantasy-thriller Tunnel. Baseball-player-turned-actor Yoon Hyun-min (Beautiful Mind) will be playing his co-star for the upcoming cable drama. Please excuse me while I swoon in delight.
For Tunnel, Choi Jin-hyuk plays a detective from 1980 who falls through a time-slip portal that leads him to the present. Before his tumble through time, he was pursuing a serial homicide case. In the present, he discovers more links that help him grow closer to finding the murderer. Remind anyone of any recent highly successful cop dramas? *cough* Signal *cough* Not that I’m complaining…
Adding more excitement to the hype, Yoon Hyun-min will be playing Choi Jin-hyuk’s partner in crime-solving. His character is described as an odd type of elite detective who rarely goes on-site. Suave and fashionably chic at first glance, he doesn’t seem like the stereotypical police investigator, but his intellect and skills are top-notch. His cold, calculating, evidence-based approach to cases is supposed to be a foil for Choi Jin-hyuk’s human-driven, hands-on approach.
Just imagining the tall duo bromancing it up with their intense gazes has gotten me shivering with anticipation. Chungmuro actress Lee Yoo-young (The Treacherous) has also confirmed her part as the psychology professor from England who helps the detective pair solve their case.
Time-travel drama Tunnel, starring Choi Jin-hyuk, Yoon Hyun-min, and Lee Yoo-young, will be broadcast on OCN this coming March.
