Lee Je Hoon Confirmed To Star In New Drama “Chief Inspector 1963”
Lee Je Hoon will soon be starring in an exciting new drama!
On April 24, MBC officially announced that Lee Je Hoon was confirmed to star in its upcoming drama “Chief Inspector 1963” (working title).
“Chief Inspector 1963” will serve as a prequel to the classic Korean series “Chief Inspector,” which ran for 18 years from 1971 to 1989 and achieved an incredible peak of 70 percent ratings back in its heyday. While the original show was set in the 1970s and 1980s (present day at the time), “Chief Inspector 1963” will be set even earlier, in the 1960s.
Lee Je Hoon will be playing a younger version of the titular chief inspector Park Young Han, who was played by Choi Bool Am in the original series. While Choi Bool Am’s Park Young Han was already a fully-formed detective, Lee Je Hoon’s version of the character will be younger and more naive—and he will struggle with his fury against the cruel reality of a world that crushes people’s dignity.
The new drama will also follow the journey of Park Young Han forming a team with the beloved detectives that made up his squad in the original show.
“Chief Inspector 1963” is scheduled to begin filming in the second half of 2023.
