Park Sung Woong Is A Criminal Who Has A Close Relationship With Park Hae Jin In “The Killing Vote”
Based on a popular webtoon, “The Killing Vote” asks the question “What is your idea of justice?” and delves into the concept of a nationwide death penalty vote against vicious criminals who deftly manage to escape the law’s blind spots. The drama highlights the story of a mysterious figure known as “Gae Tal” (dog mask), who executes the death penalty depending on the results of a vote, and the police who are pursuing them.
Park Hae Jin plays Kim Moo Chan, the head of Team 1 of the regional investigation unit at the Southern Provincial Police Agency. Lim Ji Yeon plays the role of Joo Hyun, a fifth-year lieutenant at the Cyber Security Bureau of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. Park Sung Woong stars as Kwon Suk Joo, a long-term prison inmate who turned himself in after personally killing the culprit who sexually assaulted his eight-year-old daughter.
Eight years ago, when the person who killed kwon Suk Joo’s daughter was released from prison due to insufficient evidence, Kwon Suk Joo tracked him down and personally killed him. Kim Moo Chan witnessed Kwon Suk Joo killing his daughter’s murderer. However, Kim Moo Chan addressed Kwon Suk Joo as hyung, which showed that they had a close relationship.
During his trial, Kwon Suk Joo uttered the words “innocent demon” in court, so when Joo Hyun hears the words “innocent demon” in Gae Tal’s video, she goes to Moo Chan, who was the detective in charge of the case at that time. Joo Hyun told Moo Chan that Kwon Suk Joo is the culprit behind the national death penalty vote case, leaving Moo Chan baffled.
In the released stills, Kwon Suk Joo is dressed in his prison uniform and standing in court as a defendant. Kim Moo Chan is captured with a confused facial expression as he watches Kwon Suk Joo from behind.
The stills draw curiosity for why Kim Moo Chan addressed Kwon Suk Joo as hyung and why he looked bewildered when Joo Hyun said the words “innocent demon.”
The production team of “The Killing Vote” commented, “In the second episode which will air on August 17, clues about the connection between Kim Moo Chan and Kwon Suk Joo will begin to emerge little by little.
