SBS’s upcoming drama “The Killing Vote” has teased new stills!
Based on a popular Kakao webtoon, “The Killing Vote” asks the question “What is your idea of justice?” and delves into the concept of a nationwide death penalty vote against vicious criminals who deftly manage to escape the law’s blind spots. The drama highlights the story of a mysterious figure known as “Gae Tal” (dog mask), who executes the death penalty depending on the results of a vote, and the police who are pursuing them.
The shocking setting that the votes from the general public will decide whether to put someone to death or not leaves a great impression on viewers and arouses curiosity at the same time. In particular, those who are subject to the “the killing vote” are identified as vicious criminals in the drama, which adds to the interest.
In order to make viewers get immersed in this shocking and unrealistic setting, the realistic performances of the starring actors are more crucial than anything else. In this regard, the cast lineup of Lim Ji Yeon, Park Hae Jin, and Park Sung Woong is expected to create perfect chemistry.
First of all, Lim Ji Yeon takes on the role of Joo Hyun, a fifth-year lieutenant at the Cyber Security Bureau of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. Joo Hyun was once the ace of the Cyber Investigation Team after being specially hired, but now she has become known by everyone to be a nuisance who is always under fire.
Park Hae Jin plays Kim Moo Chan, the head of Team 1 of the regional investigation unit at the Southern Provincial Police Agency. He is the youngest man to become the team leader of a regional investigation unit in the shortest period of time, and he is eager to make any interesting case his.
Lastly, Park Sung Woong stars as Kwon Suk Joo, a long-term prison inmate who turned himself in after personally killing the culprit who sexually assaulted his eight-year-old daughter. He was once Korea’s most famous legal expert, and he is still respected as a teacher-like figure and referred to as “Professor” within the prison.
“The Killing Vote”—all prepared with a shocking setting and storyline, in-depth performances by the actors, and powerful directing that will encompass all of these elements—is set to premiere on August 10 at 9 p.m. KST. Stay tuned!
