Actor Yoon Sang Hyun will be returning to the TV screen as a charismatic detective.
On January 7, multiple broadcast officials confirmed Yoon Sang Hyun has been cast as the leading role for a new tvN drama, “Gapdongee” (working title).
The storyline of “Gapdongee” was inspired by the Hwaseong serial killings, and it will portray the investigation of a serial murder case. The serial killer Gapdongee makes his return after 20 years, and Yoon Sang Hyun will be playing the character of Ha Moo Yeom, the detective in charge of his case.
Ha Moo Yeom becomes a detective from a police corporal in order to end his ties to Gapdongee. He has an ill-fated relationship with Gapdongee who disappeared 20 years ago. After the statute of limitation on his case expires, Gapdongee returns. Ha Moo Yeom goes in a desperate search to find him.
Yoon Sang Hyun will attempt to undergo an acting transformation through his role as a detective in pursuit of a serial killer. He will be breaking away from the comical characters he portrayed in previous dramas and will be showing a new side of himself through playing a detective who crosses between devotion and obsession in order to find the killer.
“Gapdongee” will be taking over the spot of “I Need Romance Season 3” once it concludes in April.
