OCN’s military drama ‘Search’ confirms broadcast date, drops main posters

Along with the release of its ominous new posters, Search, OCN’s newest drama under the Dramatic Cinema project, has also announced its October premiere date.

Search centers on a specialized troop assigned to uncover the truth behind the strange incidents in the demilitarized zone (DMZ). As more disappearances and murders happen, the team will be compelled to rely on their training and camaraderie to accomplish their mission and stay alive.

The freshly released posters carry and reflect the drama’s threatening tagline “Face a fear no one has ever seen,” and present the core characters who all have looks of uncertainty, dread, and tension. Featured in the promotional prints are Yong Dong-jin (Jang Dong-yoon, The Tale of Nokdu), a military dog handler who, on his supposed last month of rendering military service, gets assigned to the search group; Son Ye-rim (Krystal JungThe Player), a lieutenant known for her intelligence and calm and composed nature; Song Min-kyu (Yoon ParkBeautiful Love, Wonderful Life), an elite officer who will lead the specialized military team; Lee Joon-sung (Lee Hyun-wookStrangers from Hell), a deputy team leader with the mindset of a true soldier; and Kim Da-jung (Moon Jeong-heeWhen the Weather Is Fine), the former head of an anti-terrorism unit who now works as a commentator at the DMZ Memorial Hall.

Beginning October 17, the viewers will be able to find out the reason behind the members’ terrified expressions and unmask the unknown enemy that poses danger to the team.

The production crew asked, “Please look forward to the military synergy that the special team members, who have different personalities and skills, will create together, including Kim Da-jung, who will protect them.”

Search is spearheaded by filmmakers, director Lim Dae-woong and screenwriters Goo Mo and Go Myung-joo. It is slated to replace the ongoing Saturday-Sunday thriller Missing: The Other Side in its 10:30 p.m. KST time slot.
