Purple raincoat serial killer on the loose in OCN’s Voice
Two new dark teasers for OCN’s upcoming crime-thriller drama Voice have been released. Starring Jang Hyuk (Beautiful Mind) and Lee Hana (Unkind Women), the plot is about two police call center dispatchers who are determined to track down a serial murderer that has caused them to lose their families.
The two leading characters are entwined by the killer who ruined their lives. Jang Hyuk plays a washed-up former star detective who lives with a bone-deep guilt for not preventing the death of his wife, who was murdered by the serial killer. He is relegated to the police call center, where he meets Lee Hana’s character. She is a genius voice profiler who can tell the minute differences in the mewlings of individual street cats. Her father, who was also an honorable policeman, died in pursuit of the serial killer. Together they form a team to go after their greatest enemy.
Eerily, we don’t see anyone in the first teaser. The camera just pans to the trunk of an isolated car under a bridge. But suddenly, the trunk moves, and we hear a female victim’s cry and pounding from within: “Please save me!” Then there’s a final muffled whisper from her, saying, “I can’t hold out much longer.”
Combined with the second teaser, we get a better picture of what we can possibly expect in the upcoming drama. Both contain the same tag lines: “The golden time is three minutes. To save the victim who is on the perilous crossroads between life and death.” In the second teaser, the female victim calls the police from within the trunk of the car. Their conversation goes like this:
112: Yes, you’ve reached the police dispatch center.
Victim: Please save me!
112: May I ask where you are?
Victim: I don’t know. I can’t see anything.
112: Can you hear any identifying sounds around you?
But the victim is cut off when a sinister figure in a hooded raincoat, surrounded by a halo of rain, suddenly opens the trunk. The 112 dispatcher tries to get the victim to respond again, but it’s too late. Dum. Dum. Dum.
Lighter side note: It could just be me overthinking things, but I had a total deja vu moment while watching these. They resembled the K2 teasers so much that I half-expected the raincoat man to pull back his hood and be revealed as Ji Chang-wook. From the purple-blue lighting to the whole trunk-of-a-car setting, the teasers are so similar, except for the sudden dark turn that these take.
Mystery thriller OCN’s Voice will begin in January of next year.
