OCN finalizes cast lineup for military-thriller drama Search
Jang Dong-yoon, Krystal
Set amidst the backdrop of the Korean DMZ (demilitarized zone), OCN’s latest drama Search begins with a disappearance, that turns into a murder mystery at the front lines of the army. To discover the secrets behind it all, an elite search party is formed. But not everything is as it seems, and the individuals gathered all seem to have their own hidden motivations. With an unknown enemy in their midst, camaraderie and teamwork will be imperative to find the truth and safely leave the DMZ.
Jang Dong-yoon (Tale of Nokdu) has been cast as a sergeant almost at the end of his service, who oversees the training of military dogs. He’s just been waiting for his discharge date when he’s ordered to join the search party as the handler of a reconnaissance dog named MacArthur.
Krystal (Player) will be playing the role of a first lieutenant in the army who has great credentials. She’s put in the search party as a special commissioned officer for her intellectual and physical prowess.
Lee Hyun-wook, Moon Jung-hee, Yoon Park
Meanwhile, Moon Jung-hee’s (I Will Find You When the Weather Is Nice, Vagabond) character is a former team leader of the international terrorist division of the special forces. She currently works as the curator to the DMZ War Memorial, while being in the reserves. She’s trying to live a quiet civilian life with her family, carrying out her duties at the Memorial when she receives the offer to join the search party.
Yoon Park (Radio Romance) will play an elite officer, who is the first to volunteer to join the search party as the team leader. But with his uncontrollable personality that will not submit to any superior authority, he sometimes saves his team and at other times, he puts them into incredible danger. Finally, Lee Hyun-wook (Hell Is Other People) will play his second-in-command on the team, a man with a sincere soldier’s heart. When the team faces an unprecedented situation during an operation, the tension between him and Yoon Park rises to the level of mutiny.
OCN’s Search, directed by Lim Dae-woong (House of the Disappeared) and co-written by Goo Mo (Musudan) and Go Myung-joo, will air in the latter half of this year.
