Detective Moo Jin Hyeok’s (Jang Hyuk) wife is killed brutally. In the court room the 911 call center team member who answered her call, Kang Kwon Joo (Lee Ha Na), testifies and the perpetrator is let loose. A couple of years later Kang Kwon Joo returns to Korea from the US as a voice profiler. She wants to put together a team that would answer a victims’ call right away. She wants Moo Jin Hyeok to be the lead detective but will he agree to work with her?
Firstly Jang Hyuk is back!! I am really hoping that Voice will get a good audience after Beautiful Mind unfairly flopped…
Moo Jin Hyeok is a well-known detective. He is especially good at his job but after his wife dies he gets demoted and develops slight anger management problems. He never gives up hunting for the man who killed her. He and his wife also had a son who is currently in the hospital.
Kang Kwon Joo is convinced that the same man who killed Moo Jin Hyeok’s wife also murdered her father who died in a hit-and-run accident. She has never given up on catching the guy.
“A person’s voice is like a fingerprint.”
Kang Kwon Joo has a special talent. She can see the world not with her eyes but with her ears. After and eye injury as a child her hearing is extremely sensitive and she can see noises with her ears. She trained in the States and now that she returned to Korea she wants to set up the Golden Time Team.
“If you locate him I’ll make sure to save him.”
The Golden Time Team’s idea is to be on the scene of the crime 3 minutes after the 911-center gets a call. Their goal is to locate them in 5 minutes and arrest the criminal within 10 minutes. They are dispatched before other teams and thus they try to prevent anyone from dying.
Moo Jin Hyeok gets dragged into the Golden Time Team against his will. He is less than thrilled to be working with the woman who caused his wife’s death and managed to lose the criminal…
Still as a police officer with an ardent will to save anyone needing saving he can’t turn his back on the team.
Other members of the team are Oh Hyun Ho (Ye Sung). He once made his name among hackers but after studying abroad he turned into a white hacker. I have a feeling that I’m going to like him a lot.
Park Eun Soo (Son Eun Seo) can speak English, French, Mandarin, Japanese and Russian. She also has a traumatic past.
Shim Dae Shik (Baek Sung Hyun) is a fellow detective. He is the one that has been trying to keep Moo Jin Hyeok together after his wife died. Now he is also dragged to the Golden Time Team against his will.
And finally we have our mystery man. The killer behind it all. The only clue we have now is his dazzling smile and a piece of his voice.
“This is why you shouldn’t have acted up.”
Voice is off to a good start with a captivating story. The characters and ambiance of the drama are sure to bring chills to every watcher. The stories (our characters’ backgrounds and the 911-victims’) are unsettling, realistic and down right scary sometimes. The ‘bad guys are great; they have no mercy and it is up to our heroes to save the victim. Voice is another drama made captivating with OCN style.
