This is third of the 5 dramas I’m anticipating for June. This will go head-to-head against I Do, I Do on May 30. It will be replacing Rooftop Prince in SBS Wed-Thurs timeslot.
Ghost is a thriller procedural about an elite cyber investigation unit. The setting is described as “a cyber world different from the world we live in” — one where cyber investigators find out people’s secrets that are hidden in their ultramodern techie gadgets, “solving puzzles with suspense and thrills.” Basically, it’s about our hero working to reveal the secrets of those that hide within the cyber world.
Ghost is the new project from the PD-writer team of last year’s forensic procedural Sign, and this time it’ll be a procedural about a cyber crimes division. You can check out for more details in their official website.
