“Watcher” tells the story of an anti-corruption team that tries to uncover corruption within the police force. Han Suk Kyu plays a police officer who witnesses corruption in the force, Seo Kang Joon plays another policeman who witnesses a murder, and Kim Hyun Joo plays a lawyer who witnesses a lie.
This is Seo Kang Joon’s first time playing the lead role in a crime thriller, and fans can expect to see a new side of him as he takes on the role of a righteous young police officer.
Although the new stills show Seo Kang Joon in his police uniform, his 30-second character teaser shows a glimpse of what his character will be like. Although Seo Kang Joon looks carefree at first, listening to music while sitting on the bus, his gaze turns sharp as the caption reads, “Who watches the watchers?”
Seo Kang Joon has described his character, Kim Young Goon, as, “Someone who is unpredictable. He is very relatable and has a lot of flaws, but he has a sharp appearance. He has many different charms.”
The production staff stated, “He’s an actor who gets very much in character. He brings out Kim Young Goon’s complex internal feelings as well as committing his body to the physical action scenes.”
“Watcher” premieres in July and will be available on Viki.
