Jang Hyuk has been confirmed Monday as the male lead in Call It Like You See It, a new OCN thriller that comes from PD Kim Hong-sun of Voice.
The actor starred in Voice in 2017, which means he will be reuniting with director Kim Hong-sun nearly three years after their first collaboration.
Call It Like You See It follows a criminal profiler and a detective who work together to catch a serial killer who was believed to be dead. Jang Hyuk (My Country: The New Age) signed up for the role of Oh Hyun-jae, a genius profiler capable of solving cold cases with his expertise. When his fiancée is killed in an explosion caused by a serial killer, he leaves his job and disappears from the world. Later, he teams up with a detective to track down the killer.
Girls’ Generation Sooyoung (Man Who Sets The Table), meanwhile, takes on the role of Cha Soo-young, a detective with a photographic memory who helps Oh Hyun-jae solve the case involving the murder of his fiancée.
PD King Hong-sun, who also directed Black (2017) and The Guest (2018), will be the creator of Call It Like You See It while Lee Joon-hyung, who helmed Quiz From God (2010) and Hip Hop King (2019), will serve as the director.
Call It Like You See It will be broadcast in the first half of 2020.
