Back in the 1990s, the citizens of Seoul were gripped with a paralyzing fear after a series of brutal attacks and murders occurred. A mysterious figure dubbed ‘Red Cap’ was stalking women on the streets then killing his prey, seemingly without provocation. His habit of striking at random made it impossible for the detectives to predict his next move. At the top of their minds is what could be triggering him.
Aware of the American F.B.I. and its successful use of criminal profilers to identify serial killers, the head of the Criminal Behavioral Analysis team, Gook Young Soo recruits Song Ha Young, a quiet, reserved, incredibly perceptive former detective for his team. Gook believes using this new psychological method will give the police an edge in capturing ‘Red Cap’ and ending his killing spree.
Homicide expert Yoon Tae Goo and her officers question the value of this approach and are resistant to entering such uncharted territory. To quell their scorn they need to convince that this radical crime-fighting approach will increase their arrest rates. Does Song Ha Young have the ability to gain the trust of callous criminals while seeing through them? Is he clever enough to outwit them? But more importantly, does he possess the emotional fortitude to withstand the process?
Through the Darkness Korean Drama
Through the Darkness, a new Korean drama set to debut on SBS on January 14, will focus on the life of a criminal profiler who’s been tasked with tracking down a serial killer. He is an intelligent, calm, charismatic man who has the ability to thoroughly investigate any case that comes his way. To get the story’s feel, you can check out the trailer below! But before you get too excited, you should know a few things about the drama.
This show is an interesting take on crime. Most Korean crime dramas tend to focus on brutal acts, while portraying a cat-and-mouse narrative that kept viewers intrigued but left them feeling uneasy. However, Through the Darkness breaks this mold and reveals the mind of the detectives and investigators behind the crimes. It’s an eye-opening look at the inner workings of a police department and the people who work there.
The show follows Song Ha-young, a forensics analyst who puts the interests of the victims and their families above his own. He becomes close to Gook Young-soo, the head of the forensics squad. With her help, the latter realizes the importance of criminal psychology and establishes a Criminal Behaviour Analysis Team. The story is based on real crimes, and Ha-Young portrays the emotions and thoughts of the killers in a subtle and subdued way.
Although the story is about a serial rapist, it’s still a compelling drama that will keep you interested throughout. Ha-young is a talented young man with an intriguing back story. In the opening episode, he discovers a dead woman in a lake. He feels her emotions, but tries to hide them from others. He also ends up meeting her mother, who visits the ward to visit Ha-young. The ensuing encounter reminds Ha-young of his roots.
Despite the fact that the plot of this Korean drama is a bit familiar, it does have a unique twist. The first episode was a fast paced, intense thriller with plenty of tension. Unlike most Korean dramas, the plot is well-paced, and you’ll be immersed in the story while waiting for the next episode. This way, you’ll know what’s going to happen in the next episode.
The storyline of Through the Darkness is based on a novel, “agyi.” Actors Kwon Il Yong and Ko Na Moo star in the drama, which is a police procedural focusing on a serial killer. In the drama, the first Korean profiler is named Song Ha Young. Both actors have interesting roles, and the plot will keep you riveted to the screen.
