Heightened sounds help catch crime in gripping teasers for OCN’s Voice

Three teasers have been released for OCN’s upcoming crime drama Voice, two of which focus on our leads whose lives were both devastated by the same serial killer still on the loose: an intelligent voice profiler with an unusually sharp sense of hearing named Kang Kwon-joo, played by Lee Hana (Unkind Woman), and a former violent crimes detective named Moo Jin-hyuk, played by Jang Hyuk (Beautiful Mind).

Lee Hana’s teaser shows her waiting at a crosswalk while Jang Hyuk waits across the street; both are fitted with earpieces. As pedestrians make their way across, all the noises of the environment become heightened, and Lee Hana is able to distinguish the source of each one: a vibrating phone, a car engine running, snippets of conversations. “Even just hearing it, I can see it. That sound… I must find it,” she thinks to herself.

When a man handles his lighter, Lee matches it to the clinking heard in the background of a frantic emergency call, and she sees the culprit walking away. “I found him,” she says. The copy at the end reads, “The voice profiler who can see sounds, Kang Kwon-joo.”

Jang Hyuk’s teaser shows his side of the same encounter. He hears Lee Hana’s voice through his earpiece: “Detective, the culprit is nearby. He’s definitely holding a lighter.” Jang Hyuk copies that and springs into action, jumping on top of a car and lunging at the culprit. They exchange blows until Jang Hyuk slams him against a car and cuffs him. “Gotcha! You’re unaware that I’m a crazy dog,” he says with a smirk. The copy at the end reads, “Sound-chasing monster detective, Moo Jin-hyuk.”

The third teaser opens in a creepy, abandoned warehouse. As an emergency call is answered, a woman screams to be saved. A foot stomps on the phone and ends the call. Three minutes (the “golden time” to save an endangered person’s life) are on the clock as Jang Hyuk scans a suspicious area. Meanwhile, Lee Hana is at the call center, picturing herself in the victim’s location by focusing on the environmental noises she detected earlier. As time’s about to run out, Jang Hyuk grabs onto the door handles. Lee Hana’s eyes fly open and she says, “Found it.” And Jang Hyuk snarls, “I got you, you jerk.”

The teasers are skillfully edited, magnifying the sounds so that we understand Lee Hana’s impeccable psychoacoustics. Sound will play a significant role in this drama, and I’m already hooked on how it’s been enhanced and manipulated in the teasers. Even the sound of mere static put me on edge.

Voice will premiere on OCN on January 7, 2017.

OCN is hands down the authority on crime thriller dramas. And they do killer OSTs too. I still hear TEN's chilly track in my head every now and then.

there's this aura in Jang Hyuk that i always thought to myself- he's meant to be an actor through and through. And even in his next life he would be an actor.
The role here really suits him. Hope it'll be a hit

I actually think this has a shot at receiving good ratings because OCN crime dramas have a dedicated fan base which has been rightfully earned, ofcourse. OCN came out with "Bad Guys" about two years ago and it was the first drama on the channel to receive a 4% rating. Then came "Police Unit 38" which actually broke the record by 0.3%
Hopefully, this drama lives up to the crime dramas that the channel has produced so far.

Really? I don't see the resemblance, though.

Stills and trailer are looking solid. Fingers crossed this will be good!

Now I finally know what it feels like to fall in love at first sight (or maybe third teaser, haha). Everything about this looks so awesome, the directing, the edits, and the SOUND. I wasn't looking forward to this a lot because I wasn't sure what we'd be getting, but now I can't WAIT.

Many were sceptical about the show because of a female actor but now many have board the ship. Happily awaiting the action packned show. Music has great influence on humans and this is where we will see the real effects of music on our emotions.

Having recently seen the movie The Exclusive where Lee Hana played a damsel in distress with extremely poor decision-making skills, I am very glad to see she'll have more to do here. Hoping this turns out well! Some good ratings for Jang Hyuk after how badly Beautiful Mind fared despite being such a good drama would be nice too.

Why did it take Jang Hyuk so long to board the OCN train?
Seems like such a natural fit.

I fully expect Jang Hyuk to deliver in this kind of role so it's Lee Hana's teaser that got me hyped. She's a genius! The editing is great! The music is great! I'm already in love with that part at the end. It reminds me of that scene in Cruel City where shit is going down but somehow the music still fits?

I'm kinda glad Lee Hana picked this role, finally a meatier role for her so she's not always a damsel in distress.
