It depicts an enthralling narrative about people who bond together after a tragic incident. Fighting off corruption against the cruel reality of power wielding, Watcher challenges to score another hit story for OCN.
The Main Plot
In an era where good and evil are hard to distinguish, police are at the crossroads of many choices and dilemmas in order to catch criminals. Who can stop them if the cops who are supposed to take the villains fall? OCN’s new series focuses on this point.
Bonding up after a tragic incident, a corruption investigation team begins to probe the atrocities happening in the police force. The process of keeping track of the truth while constantly checking and cooperating with the team, raises anticipation on the narrative.
The Main Leads
Portraying the role of Do Chi Kwang is renowned seasoned actor Han Suk Kyu. He is the leader of the team. Uncaring and doubtful of human emotions, he thoroughly suspects everyone.
Challenging a new work that is remotely different from what he has worked on, Seo Kang Joon will breathe life to Kim Young Gun. After witnessing a crime when he was young, he carries an inner darkness which adds to the unpredictability of the plot.
Lastly, versatile actress Kim Hyun Joo aims to add another remarkable character as Han Tae Joo. A once elite prosecutor, the connecting unfortunate event led to her joining of the special police investigation team.
The Creative Team
Directing the production is Ahn Gil Ho whose recent works spawned magnanimous appreciation. His superb helming of dramas Memories of the Alhambra and Stranger fits the bill of the new story he will orchestrate.
In addition, the polished scribbling skills of writer Han Sang Woon fuses well to PD Ahn. Han penned the screenplay for The Good Wife and Spy.
Team Watcher begins its internal police surveillance journey on July 6 via OCN.
