OCN has confirmed Song Seung-heon and Lee Ha-na as the lead stars of its upcoming series Voice 4.
Voice is a crime-thriller drama that follows the Golden Time Team, a special crew composed of employees of the 112 emergency call center, specialists, and detectives. They work together in solving cases within the most crucial minutes of the crime, starting with only the clues and information they get from the phone calls.
Lee Ha-na (When the Weather Is Fine) is set to reprise her role as Kang Kwon-joo, a police officer and gifted voice profiler who has exceptional hearing. In the first season (2017), Kwon-joo worked with Moo Jin-hyuk (Jang Hyuk, Tell Me What You Saw), a homicide detective in search of his wife’s killer. In the next two installments, she partnered up with Do Kang-woo (Lee Jin-wook, Sweet Home) in taking down a serial killer and an international cartel who make their dealings in the dark web.
In Voice 4, she will work with Derek Jo (Song Seung-heon, Dinner Mate), a unit leader at the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). He is described as a principled detective who does not tolerate little mistakes, does not compromise, and has overwhelming charisma. He will collaborate with the Golden Time Team as they set out to find the serial murderer who has the same special ability as Kwon-joo.
The production crew said, “The casting of Song Seung-heon and Lee Ha-na alone is enough. Song Seung-heon, who has solid and in-depth acting skills, is [ready] to bring out 200 percent of the various charms of Derek Jo, [a man] with pain and secrets. In addition, Lee Ha-na, who has successfully played the role of Kang Kwon-joo, the heroine of Voice, does not need [much explanation]. She will continue to play an active part in season four, [just as she] has successfully led each season. We will meet you with Voice 4, which will not go against the expectations of viewers who love Voice. Please look forward to the Golden Time Team and watch [Derek and Kwon-joo] as they protect precious lives.”
Voice 4, also known as Voice 4: Time of Judgment, is spearheaded by Shin Yong-hwi, director of Tunnel (2017), and Ma Jin-won, the screenwriter of Voice’s past three seasons. It is slated to air as a 14-episode drama in June, following the conclusion of the upcoming Saturday-Sunday series Dark Hole.
