Cops in modern day Seoul find clues to some of the most heinous crimes in national history via a police radio that crosses time in Signal.
Park Hae Young (played by Lee Je Hoon) is a genius criminal profiler, Cha Soo Hyun (Kim Hye Soo) the experienced cop (and one of the few women in the force donning a badge) and Lee Jae Han (Cho Jin Woong) a gumshoe from the past.
About the cast:
Major small screen role (heh, just realized the oxymoron) for Cho Jin Woong, who’s now popping up all over the place like the much buzzed feature from Park Chan Wook, The Handmaiden (aka 아가씨), last year’s Assassination, and the upcoming Entourage remake (a kdrama) with Park Jung Min (yay! Bleak Night shoutout) which premieres in October.
Lee Je Hoon is a welcome face (I love you, Bleak Night boys), and am ready to see him in a sweeping, epic romance next. Because with that face, c’mon.
Kim Hye Sook you may have seen as the villainous lady in Coin Locker Girl (aka Chinatown) with Kim Go Eun.
