“Those Who Read Hearts of Evil” is based on a book of the same name that was co-penned by Kwon Il Yong and Go Na Moo.

Kim So Jin will take on the role of Yoon Tae Goo, the team leader of the Mobile Investigation Unit at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. Yoon Tae Goo uses her animal-like instincts to perceive cases, and she’s known as a legend in the world of handling violent crimes.
