Lee Kyu-hyung joins Song Seung-heon, Lee Hana in thriller Voice 4
Crime procedural drama Voice 4: Time of Judgement has announced some casting news and released a new teaser. This multi-season thriller drama is all about phone calls to 112 (Korea’s version of 911) that are critical to catch criminals within the Golden Time. Lee Hana (A Piece of Your Mind) reprises her role as a voice profiler, with Song Seung-heon (Will You Have Dinner With Me) as her new rule-following American partner.
Season 4 is all about serial killer who has superhearing just like Lee Hana’s character. Given those abilities, the killer is able to disguise his sound traces and trap the police into a corner.
The teaser begins with the followers of the serial killing circus ringleader walking an eery field. A hooded figure, splattered in blood, whispers to Lee Hana: “We were born with a very special fate.” Lee Hana explains that the killer keeps sending her messages in a sound profile only she can hear, teasing her with plans of future, devious murders. She thinks that the killer wants to make her believe that the killer has the same extraordinary hearing abilities as her.
In the middle of a mass-scale search in a forest, Song Seung-heon calls Lee Hana: “This is Derek Jo with the LAPD. Please tell me everything you know about the criminal.” She explains that the killer has exterminated two entire households in the past. She continues to let him know: “It may be difficult to believe, but the criminal has a special hearing ability…” The killer, wielding an axe, is shown in the midst of a horrific home murder.
A young woman hiding in a closet texts “Help me.” In a different scene, Song Seung-heon tells Lee Hana: “I don’t know what you heard that made you say that, but if you’re wrong, my sister is in danger. Can you take responsibility for your words?” In a face-to-face encounter, she confronts him: “I don’t care if you believe me. The killer uses his special hearing to kill others, I will catch him and make him pay.”
As for casting news, Lee Kyu-hyung (Hi Bye, Mama!) will be playing an important role in the drama, but details of his character have not been revealed.
Directed by Shin Yong-hui and written by Ma Jin-won, Saturday-Sunday tvN drama Voice 4 will begin airing on June 18.
