First script reading for OCN drama Running Investigators
New photos have been released featuring the cast of OCN drama Running Investigators, who got together for the first script reading back in June. Along with the production team, actors Lee Yo-won (Different Dreams), Choi Gwi-hwa (Suits), Jang Hyun-sung (Angel’s Last Mission: Love, Doctor Prisoner), Oh Mi-hee (Fluttering Alert), and Oh Joo-woo (Let’s Eat 3) as well as other supporting cast were present.
The story is set within the Korean Human Rights Commission and follows the commission’s team of investigators as they look into the different cases involving human rights violations and the difficult decisions that arise because of them. However, rather than grand causes, the drama focuses on common, day-to-day, and relatable situations. The overall message of the drama being that everyone has the right to live with dignity.
On the human rights investigation team, Lee Yo-won plays the role of Han Yoon-seo – who is described as an ace investigator on the team, level-headed, and strictly by-the-books.
Countering her character is Choi Gwi-hwa who plays Bae Hong-tae. Coming from a prosecutor background, he shows a lot of empathy for people and believes in siding with the oppressed and weak.
Jang Hyun-sung plays the head of the team, Kim Hyun-seok. In the past, he had been passionate about his field. However, over the years, he got absorbed into the corporate culture and became desensitized to the cause.
Playing the human rights commissioner is Oh Mi-hee, whose character’s name is Ahn Kyung-sook. When making decisions, she shows cool logic and objectivity, but she is warm and personable when interacting with her fellow colleagues.
Directing for the drama will be done by PD Kim Yong-soo, and writing the script Baek Jung-chul.
OCN’s Running Investigators is currently being planned to premiere in September. It will be taking over the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot after Class of Lies concludes its run.
