Han Ji Min, Lee Min Ki, And EXO’s Suho’s Upcoming Drama Confirms Premiere Date
“Behind Your Touch” (working title) is a comedy investigative drama about a diligent yet busybody veterinarian Bong Ye Boon (Han Ji Min) who somehow gains psychometric abilities to be able to see the past of both people and animals in Mujin, a small rural village free of crime, and the ambitious elite detective Moon Jang Yeol (Lee Min Ki) who needs her abilities to return to the criminal investigation team in Seoul.
This marks Han Ji Min’s third time working together with director Kim Seok Yoon: the actress previously starred in both his 2011 film “Detective K: Secret of the Virtuous Widow” and his 2019 drama “Radiant.” Lee Min Ki also starred in Kim Seok Yoon’s latest drama “My Liberation Notes.”
Han Ji Min plays the affectionate and busybody veterinarian Bong Ye Boon who gains psychometric abilities by chance. She has the ability to see the past of people and animals if she touches their butt. While testing out her abilities, she gets caught by zealous detective Moon Jang Yeol and sets out the resolve a mysterious incident.
Han Ji Min shared, “I prepared and filmed with all my heart and with great affection to the extent where it was sad each and every day when filming came to an end. We were able to complete ‘Behind Your Touch’ thanks to director Kim Seok Yoon as well as scriptwriter Lee Nam Gyu, the actors, and staff. We will greet viewers with ‘Behind Your Touch’ at the end of summer.”
Lee Min Ki will transform into detective Moon Jang Yeol who has been relegated to the rural village of Mujin from the criminal investigation team. Overflowing with passion, he has great obsession over investigating his cases, so he goes around looking for opportunities to return to Seoul from his peaceful and quiet life in Mujin. He becomes completely drained after seeing Bong Ye Boon, who possess a novel and bizarre ability. However, while taking care of cases one at a time, a serial murder case occurs in Mujin, awakening his detective instincts.
Lee Min Ki shared, “I’m really grateful to meet Ye Boon and Sun Woo as Jang Yeol, and it was an honor to work hard and enjoyably with great senior and junior actors as well as the director and our staff members. I was really grateful while working on the project, and now that it has passed, it remains as an even more precious memory. I’m also awaiting the broadcast with heart-fluttering excitement.”
EXO’s Suho will take on the role of Kim Sun Woo, who has an angelic appearance and personality. He suddenly comes down to the village of Mujin one day and starts working as a part-timer at a convenience store, shaking up Bong Ye Boon’s heart with his kind smile. Already, anticipation is great for Suho’s portrayal of the friendly yet mysterious Kim Sun Woo, who is a difficult character to read.
Suho shared, “I really enjoy director Kim Seok Yoon’s projects. I was grateful to work together with him, and it was meaningful. Furthermore, I was happy to work with senior actors whom I respect, and it was even more meaningful as it was a project I acted in for the first time in a while.”
