Go Soo, Heo Joon-ho, Ahn Soo-hee, Seo Eun-soo, and Ha Joon have been confirmed on May 8 as the lead actors of the upcoming OCN fantasy series Missing: They Were There.
Missing: They Were There will tell the story of a mysterious village that holds the spirits of missing people who have died. A search then begins to find their bodies and uncover the truth behind their unexplained disappearances.
Go Soo will take on the role of Kim Wook, a con artist who uses his good looks and charm to lure his targets. However, he is not purely driven by greed as he looks out for ordinary people who are victimized by evil con artists. He acts as a modern-day Robin Hood and steals their money back for them. One day, he finds himself in Duon Village where he soon faces numerous mysteries. Go Soo starred in the recently concluded political drama Money Game (2020), alongside Shim Eun-kyung.
Meanwhile, Heo Joon-ho will be playing the character Jang Pan-seok, a strange man who secretly looks for the missing people. He holds the key to a gateway between the village and the outside world. He will work with Kim Wook in solving the cases. Heo is a veteran actor who started his career about 30 years ago. Since then, he has starred in many critically-acclaimed projects including the historical zombie-themed Netflix original series Kingdom (2019–2020).
Ahn So-hee has been cast as Lee Jong-ah, a level nine civil servant working at a community center. She is also white hat hacker who seeks to gain social justice. She will be teaming up with Kim Wook and Jang Pan-seok in unraveling the mysteries. Ahn previously appeared in the comedy drama Welcome to Waikiki 2 (2018).
Completing the line-up are actors Ha Joon (Black Dog) and Seo Eun-soo (Legal High) as Shin Joon-ho and Choi Yeo-na, respectively. Joon-ho is an elite detective. He applies for the missing person squad to find his fiancé Yeo-na who disappeared one month prior to their wedding.
Missing: They Were There has signed on PD Min Yeon-hong of Channel A’s Touch (2020) to spearhead its production as well as A Witch’s Love (2014) screenwriter Ban Ki-ri and rookie author Jung So-young to pen the script. The weekend drama is scheduled to air in August.
