Lee Seo Jin Is A Determined Reporter In New Time-Warp Mystery Drama
OCN’s upcoming drama “Times” released its first set of stills of Lee Seo Jin!
“Times” is a new “time-warp” political mystery drama starring Lee Joo Young as Seo Jung In, the daughter of South Korean president Seo Gi Tae (played by Kim Young Chul). After miraculously communicating with journalist Lee Jin Woo (Lee Seo Jin) from five years in the past by phone call, Seo Jung In attempts to prevent the death of her father—but stumbles upon a dangerous truth in the process.
Lee Jin Woo is a journalist who enjoys thoroughly reporting on the worst sides of the powerful, and his specialty is offending people in high positions with his scathing criticism that he writes without reservation. Lee Jin Woo won’t allow corruption to be covered up, and he fulfills his job as a reporter by revealing the truth despite becoming a thorn in many sides. The newly released stills depict Lee Jin Woo working passionately with those firm beliefs.
The production team explained, “The actor’s tsundere charm [having cold outward behavior while actually being warm and caring on the inside] is conveyed through his character.” Lee Seo Jin has gained much love from variety show viewers for his way of pointing out the truth and complaining about unfairness while simultaneously taking care of the cast and staff. Lee Seo Jin’s rough manner of speech yet affectionate personality is greatly similar to Lee Jin Woo’s attitude of being a rough reporter who also can’t ignore someone’s desperate plea for help.
Furthermore, the production team added, “Lee Jin Woo is, in other words, Lee Seo Jin. Lee Seo Jin has brought to life Lee Jin Woo’s actions and lines that were only depicted in writing within the script. Thanks to that, the character’s charm has doubled. Please look forward to Lee Seo Jin’s charming role as someone who reveals facts as he completes ‘Times’ and makes it even richer with this character synergy.”
“Times” is currently slated to premiere in February 2021. In the meantime, watch a teaser for the drama here!
