Jang Hyuk Compares His Characters In “Tell Me What You Saw” And “Voice”
This upcoming OCN drama is a suspense thriller about genius profiler Oh Hyun Jae, who has lost everything, and detective Cha Soo Young, who has photographic memory, as they work together to track down a serial killer.
On January 17, Jang Hyuk participated in an interview to share his thoughts on his character, Oh Hyun Jae. The actor previously starred as the character Oh Jin Hyuk in the 2017 thriller “Voice,” which achieved the highest viewership ratings in OCN history.
Three years later, Jang Hyuk is returning to the genre and network as Oh Hyun Jae, a genius profiler who disappeared from society after losing his fiancée in an explosion set off by a serial killer. Stating why he decided to appear in “Tell Me What You Saw,” Jang Hyuk said, “I had high hopes that I would be able to create a different, new character from ‘Voice.'”
He continued, “Oh Hyun Jae is a character that’s mentally closed off. I’m pondering many things, and I prepared various props to make an impact. It felt as if Oh Hyun Jae had such deep pain that he had lost himself after the explosion. I’m working hard so that I can best portray his loss and pain.”
As for the script, Jang Hyuk commented, “I was intrigued by the story development and how Oh Hyun Jae is a character who investigates and knows the overall psychology behind a case, but became traumatized by the criminal he was pursuing and tries to overcome this trauma by chasing this criminal once again.”
He concluded, “I’m excited. I’m having more expectations than feelings of burden. I’m working hard to make a good project that will meet viewers’ expectations. Please look forward to it.”
“Tell Me What You Saw” premieres on February 1 at 10:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki!
