Actor Song Seung-heon is currently being courted to lead the fourth installment of OCN’s popular crime-thriller series Voice.
On November 11, the actor’s agency King Kong by Starship confirmed reports by issuing a statement that said, “Song Seung-heon has received an offer to appear in OCN’s Voice 4 and is [in the process of] considering it.”
Set in the backdrop of an emergency call center, Voice first aired in 2017 to immense popularity and stellar ratings. Since then, the show has had three seasons featuring stories that revolve around crime, murders, and illegal cartels. Actors who have starred in the show so far include: Jang Hyuk (Tell Me What You Saw) and Lee Jae-wook (Her Private Life) in season one; Lee Jin-wook (Return), Kim Woo-seok (A Piece of Your Mind), and Yoo Seung-mok (Oh My Baby) in seasons two and three; and Lee Ha-na (A Piece of Your Mind) and Son Eun-seo (Spring Turns to Spring) in all three seasons.
Song Seung-heon made his small-screen debut in 1996, appearing in little-known dramas. In 2000, he attained Hallyu (Korean Wave) star status and became a household name after starring in the drama Autumn in My Heart, along with Song Hye-kyo and Won Bin. Then he went on to headline more hit shows like East of Eden (2008), Black (2017), Player (2018), The Great Show (2019), and most recently, Dinner Mate (2020). Though specific details of the role offered to Song in Voice 4 remain under wraps, the actor is already anticipated to make another remarkable comeback should he decide to accept the proposal.
The Voice franchise is also known for its top-notch directors. The first season was helmed by director Kim Hong-sun of The Guest (2018), Voice 2 by director Lee Seung-young of The Missing (2015), and Voice 3 by director Nam Ki-hoon of Oh My Baby (2020). Similarly, Voice 4 will welcome a new director in Shin Yong-hwi, who previously worked on OCN’s Tunnel (2017).
