Cast takes a trip to the emergency call center for OCN’s Voice
Actors Lee Hana (Unkind Woman) and Yesung (Awl) of OCN’s upcoming crime thriller Voice stopped by an emergency call center in Incheon to acclimate themselves with the unique environment and prepare for their roles as police call center dispatchers.
Lee Hana headlines the drama with Jang Hyuk (Beautiful Mind), taking on the roles of Kang Kwon-joo and Moo Jin-hyuk, respectively. She is a brilliant voice profiler with an extremely acute sense of hearing who serves as the leader of the emergency call center’s “Golden Time team.” He is a former star detective who now works as a first responder at the call center. Both of them lost loved ones to the same serial killer, and together, they strive to find the murderer before it’s too late.
Yesung plays Oh Hyun-oh, the youngest call center employee and a brilliant hacker who’s an invaluable asset to the Golden Time team. The drama has also added a couple more actors, with Baek Sung-hyun (Doctors) playing a detective and Sohn Eun-seo (Bring it On, Ghost) as another member of the team. Baek’s detective character is named Shim Hyun-ho, and he reveres and actively helps out his sunbae Jang Hyuk. Sohn plays Park Eun-soo, who comes from a family of international airport police officers and speaks in a clear albeit stiff manner, though at heart she is delicate and timid.
At the Incheon emergency call center, Lee Hana and Yesung spoke with the relationship manager there and learn about actual crime scenarios and how the center handles such emergencies. They were also taught the emergency response manual which is used as standard operating guidelines. I appreciate it when actors take the time to speak to the very people they’ll be embodying and observe them in their element because that’s one of the best ways for actors to breathe life into their characters and give authentic performances.
OCN’s Voice will premiere in January of 2017.
