Yesung and Kim Jae-wook join OCN’s The Voice
The cast of OCN’s upcoming crime thriller The Voice has two new additions: Yesung (Awl) as a cast member, and Kim Jae-wook (The Last Princess, Age of Feeling) in a special appearance. The table read also took place earlier this week, which means production will be in full swing shortly.
The Voice is the story of two police call center dispatchers played by Jang Hyuk (Beautiful Mind) and Lee Hana (Unkind Woman) who both lost their loved ones to a serial killer still on the loose. Jang Hyuk’s character used to be a star detective, but following the death of his wife, guilt shatters him and he becomes obsessed with finding his wife’s murderer, spiraling into a monster himself. Lee Hana plays a genius voice profiler who can distinguish street cats based on the sound of their meows. She lost her police sergeant father the night she was working at the call center and tragically heard him die at the scene of a gruesome crime. The two dispatchers unite in their search for the serial killer before he/she strikes again.
Idol actor Yesung broke out in JTBC’s Awl, where he gave a strong performance as a supermarket worker going up against the establishment. He’s been cast to play the maknae of the police call center who is instrumental in solving the serial killer case. Kim Jae-wook will return to dramaland after a long hiatus, and while his role is described as a special appearance, we do know that he’ll play an important character who holds the key to the case.
Written by Ma Jin-won (I Am Legend) and directed by PD Kim Do-hyuk (I Love Lee Tae-ri), The Voice aims to be a dark and bone-chilling affair. One thing’s for sure, I’ll definitely take a crime thriller over the singing competition show with the swiveling chairs and indecisive celebrity judges that the show’s title evokes.
OCN’s The Voice will premiere sometime in January of 2017.
