Choi Jin-hyuk pursues hooded man from past to future in Tunnel
A new teaser gives us another tiny glimpse of time-traveler cop Choi Jin-hyuk (Pride and Prejudice) in his upcoming mystery crime procedural Tunnel. It’s being aired on OCN, so you know it’s going to be dark and gritty. I don’t know if this is a coincidence, but Choi is actually playing a detective who travels forward through time from 1986 (his birth year) to present-day Korea.
He plays a violent crimes detective with ten years of experience, who one day goes through a tunnel and ends up in the future. The plot is centered around him trying to get back home to his time by solving a cold case that he was working on in the past. He must hunt down the culprit of the female university student serial homicides that occurred during 1986. Then did the culprit travel forward in time too?
There was one teaser already released that showed Choi Jin-hyuk biking through a time-warp tunnel and emerging on the other side in the present. For this teaser, Choi Jin-hyuk stands in a crowd of people and tries to determine where he is. He recalls chasing a shadowy hooded figure inside the tunnel, but he must have bumped his head because that’s all that he remembers. He wonders if maybe catching that suspect may be the key to traveling back to his own time.
The stills show him rocking (or trying to rock) an ’80s fashion look, complete with the then-trendy 8:2 hair part. Another shows him sitting down on a curb, frustrated and looking lost. Just seeing Choi Jin-hyuk back again with his trademark pout-frown is getting me hyped already for this drama.
OCN’s upcoming time-traveling thriller Tunnel will air on Saturdays and Sundays and premieres in March.
