K-Drama Sneak Peek: “Times” Presents A Riveting Time-Crossing Plot Centered On A Mission To Halt An Imminent Murder

By  | 

Times braces us for an engrossing drama where our protagonists not only race against time but also cross timelines for a dangerous undertaking.

In the upcoming drama, Times, two people are out on a mission to save a very important person. Things could have been easily feasible save for the fact that they live within different timelines.


OCN’s new political thriller, Times, delves on a time-warp narrative spanning five years in between. Intriguingly inviting, the drama aims to present a fantasy story using the element of time as a lifeline from something sinister. It contrives a kind of reality out of butterfly effects from a distorted timeline. And these changes could either salvage or destroy the present world.

Plot Sketch

Times follows the story of Seo Jung In (Lee Joo Young), a passionate journalist who lives in the year 2020. Strangely, she gets in contact through a phone call with Lee Jin Woo (Lee Seo Jin).

Lee Jin Woo is a fearless reporter who digs for the truth behind some suspicious connivance orchestrated by people who secretly covet political powers. The connection between the two journalists seems normal at first thought. Only, Lee Jin Woo lives five years behind Seo Jung In’s time.


In 2020, an unexpected event throws the country in chaos when the president, Seo Ki Tae (Kim Young Cheol) is killed in one of his public engagements.  The president happens to be Seo Jung In’s father.

Seo Jung In later comes face to face with the truth about the vicious plot that killed her father. Out of desperation, she implores Lee Jin Woo to help save her father from the looming murder. The two will work together to trace the root of the wicked plan to save the president.
