Premiere Watch: Voice 2
Time slot: Saturday & Sunday
Genre: Crime thriller
Episode count: 16
Reasons to watch: Voice was a major hit for OCN and broke ratings records for the cable network when it aired in 2017, and was known for being an especially gritty crime drama (translation: there was a LOT of blood). While Jang Hyuk opted out of the second season, Lee Hana is back, which is more important for the core premise of the show—she’s the one who has the gift of perfect hearing, who can profile killers and crime scenes based on sounds that no one else can detect.
This season she’ll partner up with Lee Jin-wook, a “psychopath detective” who watched his partner’s gruesome murder, and turned into an unfeeling detective with a one-track mind—to find his partner’s killer and return the favor tenfold. He and Lee Hana are after the same serial killer, which causes them to butt heads and eventually team up to find him. The same writer from Season 1 is onboard, and the PD’s previous credits include other OCN thrillers Missing Noir M and both seasons of TEN, so it should be in good hands. If you can stomach the crimes, the thrills should be worth it.
