Jang Hyuk as an angst-ridden Criminal Profiler shunning society? YES PLEASE!

On November 3rd, Soompi gave confirmation that Jang Hyuk and Sooyoung will both officially star in the Crime Drama “Call it Like you See it. ” Jin Seo Yeon is still in talks.

It was fun to speculate on his character, but now we know for sure what role he’s playing.

Jang Hyuk stars as the gifted Cold-Case Profiler, Oh Hyun Jae. (I’m in love with his name!) He joins forces with Cha Soo Young (Played by Sooyoung) a young Detective with a photographic memory, to find a serial killer.

The serial killer acts on a terrorist-level when he sets an explosion that kills his fiancée. No word if it was a targeted attack on her or meant for a multitude of people, and she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Poor Jang Hyuk can’t catch a break in the crime dramas. In “Voice,” he also played a heartbroken and revenge-driven detective whose wife was murdered.

In a plot twist that I’d discussed in my last post, Oh Hyun Jae erases all traces of his life and disappears. I find that concept so intriguing. It’s reminiscent of the – hard-to-find with good subtitles – OCN Kdrama, “Children of a Lesser God.”

After his beloved sister is brutally murdered, Genius, hot-shot Detective Cheon Jae-In (Kang Ji Hwan) spirals into a deep depression, eccentricity, and homelessness. He’s drawn back into the hunt by Kim Dan, a female Detective with Supernatural abilities to see a dead person’s final moments. Because I couldn’t decipher the available subtitles.

The “Call It Like You See It” Production team said of Jang Hyuk –  “He always brings a unique color to each project, so we’re sure that many viewers are excited to see him. Oh Hyun Jae will be a character who brings out a new side of Jang Hyuk. Please anticipate the drama.”

Our readers know I can’t express those exact sentiments enough in all my posts! Expect “Call It Like You See It” in the first half of 2020.

So near yet so far.

  1. He’s been working so hard each year! I’m glad we will be able to get our Hyuk fix!

    • I’m excited! He’s always working hard, just when you think he definitely needs a break, there he is starring in something else. I like that he paced himself since his last starring role in “Bad Papa,” by taking Supporting roles. So it will be great to see him as an intense lead again.
