OCN, which is famous for its genre works, has a strong lineup of dramas. This year, it will visit viewers at home with fresher and more diverse material than before. The start of the show is "Tell Me What You Saw", the new OCN Saturday drama, which will premiere on February 1st. (Creator Kim Hong-seon-I, screenplay Ko Yeong-jae, Han Gi-hyun, and director Kim Sang-hoon-I).
"Tell Me What You Saw" is a suspense thriller about a genius profiler who loses everything and a detective who remembers everything she sees once, tracking down a serial killer. It's starring Jang Hyuk, Choi Soo-young, Jin Seo-yeon, Jang Hyun-sung, Ryu Seung-soo and others.
"The actors create an overwhelming atmosphere that is more like a movie than a drama", the production team said. "We are trying to create a dense, well-made drama that meets your expectations".
Come this May is OCN's first Wednesday / Thursday original drama, "Rugal". "Rugal" is a human action hero drama about a former elite police officer who ends up losing not only his beloved wife, but also his eyes, and is accused of being a murderer. A breathtaking match between the special police organization Rugal and the criminal organization Argos will be held to the full.
"Rugal" stars Choi Jin-hyuk, Park Sung-woong, Jo Dong-hyuk, Jung Hye-in, Han Ji-wan, Kim Min-sang and Park Sun-ho. In addition, Choi Jin-hyuk and Park Sung-woong, who have been leads in the OCN dramas "Tunnel - Drama" and "Life on Mars" respectively are something to look forward to. The production team said, "You can look forward to the Korean-style action heroes to be incorporated into a different worldview".
This year's first and the third OCN Dramatic Cinema project, "Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation" (screenplay Lee Yu-jin, Jung Yoon-sun-I, director Kang Hyo-jin), are also preparing to take the stage. "Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation" is a satisfactory investigative drama about a group of eccentric outsiders from different areas using all methods necessary to solve unsolved crimes. It is OCN's third 'Dramatic Cinema' project since "Trap - Drama" and "Strangers from Hell". Actors Cha Tae-hyun, Lee Sun-bin, Jung Sang-hoon and Park Jung-woo-V will appear.

The production team anticipates that "Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation" will satisfyingly solve cases that were left unsolved.
There are other things to look forward to, such as OCN's fourth Dramatic Cinema project, "The Search". "The Search" is a survival drama about a military search troop that battles an unknown creature and struggles to get out of the Demilitarized Zone. Casting is currently in progress and Jang Dong-yoon has confirmed to lead the drama.
Then there's the sci-fi romance drama "Train", which is about a man who loses a lover, but protects her in a parallel universe, "The Fifth Column - Drama", which is a Korean spy thriller about the agents of the NIS, "Island - Drama", which is based on a fable in Jeju Island, and "Miss and Mrs. Cops - Drama", which is the drama version of the original movie of the same name.
Finally, "Dark Hole", written by Jeong I-do-I, who also wrote "Save Me" and "Strangers from Hell", is in the lineup. It is a disaster mystery based on 'sinkholes', which are emerging as a social problem.
Most of the works are still pending, except for a few that have fixed the timing of the show. OCN is preparing with the goal of producing within this year. However, formation can vary depending on the situation, as it is flexible. OCN focuses on presenting high completion, rather than on organizing or producing. It is going to establish a new OCN strategic direction to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year. The beginning is the establishment of OCN's own worldview. Its goal is to include works made with various IPs in one worldview. It's building a Marvel Universe like the one in the U.S. and another OCN Universe.
Hwang Hye-jung, director of OCN, said, "I think we can create a 'Korean Marvel Worldview' or 'OCN World View' in two major areas. The values pursued by OCN are encouraging good and punishing evil, and the embodiment of social justice. Though it cannot be compared directly with Marvel, there are many Korean heroes who form social consensus. We are planning to build a dream team and start building a worldview. We can't reveal clear plans, but you can look forward to OCN, which has benchmarked Marvel".
OCN, which has produced a wide range of genre works, is out with extraordinary determination this year. An ambitious plan has already come out. Unlike the character-oriented Marvel, the story and material-oriented OCN is drawing keen attention to what kind of worldview it will build with them. It is also anticipated to see what kind of fresh impact OCN stories will have on viewers.
