This is first of the upcoming five dramas I’m looking forward to. I like the previous title, Father’s War more. The Chaser seems to literal and it might associated to the 2008 Korean film with the similar title. Anyway, I’m a little sad it’s not getting the rave that it should. Is it because of the lack of a younger and more popular cast? I just hope the subs won’t be delayed for this- but then again that might not be a problem since this is a drama from SBS. It’s slated to premiere on May 28 after Fashion King.
This drama is about Detective Baek Hong-Suk (Son Hyeon-Ju) who lost his 15-year-old daughter in a car accident and his wife died from shock shortly afterwards. He then searches for the truth related to his daughter’s death and learns that her death is tied into a conspiracy.
Reporter Seo Ji-Soo (Wang Ji-Hye) is the owner’s daughter of a large corporation. She helps Detective Baek Hong-Suk to uncover the truth on his daughter’s death.
