Chun Jung-myung’s OCN thriller gets summer premiere
This drama changes its name every other day so there’s no telling what it’ll be called by the time it airs, but for now OCN’s next crime thriller formerly known as Crying Game (for all of two minutes), and also Ten Days Ago, is called Reset, and it’s moving up its timetable for a summer premiere following the current forensic procedural God’s Quiz 4. The drama has secured its leading cast with Chun Jung-myung (Queen of the Night) and Kim So-hyun (Suspicious Housekeeper) in a setup that has her playing two roles. And no, one of them is not a doppelgänger spy.
The drama is about a fifteen-year-old murder case with ten days left before its statute of limitations runs out, giving us the perfect timeline for a 10-episode drama. Chun Jung-myung stars as a prosecutor whose first love was the victim of that original crime. He’s obsessed with finding her killer, and has spent his whole career working violent crimes because he can’t let it go.
Kim So-hyun plays two roles — she’ll play both the first love who dies and then a high-schooler in the present day who gets caught up in the case. I’m guessing she becomes a potential next victim, and if she looks so much like the girl who died fifteen years ago, it’s sure to throw both killer and prosecutor into a tailspin. I’m just glad she’s playing her age and that he’ll have been a teenager when he loved her.
Rounding out the supporting cast are Shin Eun-jung (Bride of the Century) as the police section chief, and Park Won-sang (Golden Cross) as an investigative prosecutor, who join the manhunt for the killer. The drama is described as a “memory chase thriller,” whatever that means. Maybe we’ll be solving the old case to prevent the new case, a la Gap-dong? I just hope they’re going to take the thrills part of the thriller seriously.
Reset will air on Sunday nights and premieres August 10.
