“Voice 2” will be thriller drama following the lives of 112 emergency call center employees as they fight against crimes using the sounds that they hear.
The first season that aired in 2017 was a hit, recording average viewership ratings of 5.7 percent and peaking at 6.3 percent in real-time ratings, an unprecedented feat for its genre. Not only did “Voice” succeed in ratings, but it also received positive feedback from viewers for raising awareness of the hard work that emergency call center workers do to keep civilians safe.
It was confirmed on April 17 that in the new season, Lee Jin Wook will play the lead role of Do Kang Woo, who is able to tap into the minds of criminals to solve his cases. Alongside him will be Lee Ha Na, who will return from season one as Kang Kwon Joo, the gentle but charismatic heroine who commands the other call center employees with her skills and determination.
The production staff stated, “We believed that Lee Jin Wook would be perfect for the role of Do Kang Woo. He is an actor with a lot of talent and depth, and we believe that he will be able to perfectly portray his character, who is skilled at his work but also hides a painful secret that no one knows about. We will also see the return of Lee Ha Na, who successfully led the first season as Kang Kwon Joo. We hope viewers will anticipate the perfect teamwork that will form between Lee Jin Wook and Lee Ha Na.”
The project will be directed by Lee Seung Young, who has worked on productions like “Chosun C.S.I Byul Soon Gum,” “TEN,” and “Missing Noir M.” The script will be written by Ma Jin Won, who also wrote the script for the first season.
“Voice 2” is set to air in the second half of 2018.
