“Voice 4” Director Shares 3 Points That Separate The Upcoming Season From The Rest
The director of “Voice 4” has shared three key points to look forward to ahead of the premiere!
“Voice,” which aired its first season in 2017, is about an emergency call center and the employees who fight crime using the limited information they get from the calls they receive. Lee Ha Na stars as Kang Kwon Joo, the ace voice profiler of the Golden Time Team, and Song Seung Heon joins this season as Derek Jo, a unit leader at the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
To better describe the upcoming season, director Shin Yong Hwi picked three points that distinguish it from the earlier seasons. For the first point, director Shin Yong Hwi picked the warm comfort given to victims. At an earlier press conference, Shin Yong Hwi commented, “In Season 4, we focus on the topics of restoring trust and healing pain among broken families. What makes it different from previous seasons is that it doesn’t stop at catching criminals but offers victims warm comfort and emphasizes the restoration of family relationships.”
At the same time, Shin Yong Hwi emphasized the stronger and more intense villain in season four. The upcoming series will feature a villain that will outdo Mo Tae Goo (Kim Jae Wook) from season one, Bang Jae Soo (Kwon Yul) from season two, and Masayuki Kaneki (Park Byung Eun) from season three.
The director added, “The villain in season four is powerful too. As this season has a societal foundation and focuses on broken families, the villain is also a by-product of a broken family,” revealing the background of the Circus Man, who uses the same extraordinary hearing abilities as Kang Kwon Joo to commit crimes instead of save people.
For the third and final point, Shin Yong Hwi picked the visualization of Kang Kwon Joo’s hearing. The director had previously explained that he chose to work on “Voice 4” because he read the script and had the desire to try directing the story in a different way. He commented, “I thought it would be more fun if we could emphasize the visualization of hearing. I tried to direct it in a way that made it seem like both Kang Kwon Joo and the other agents were all on the spot. It’ll be good if you look forward to the visualization of Kang Kwon Joo’s hearing.”
tvN’s “Voice 4” premieres on June 18 at 10:50 p.m. KST.
