In 1986, Detective Park Gwang Ho (Choi Jin Hyuk) desperately tries to catch a serial killer. He chases after the serial killer and goes through a tunnel. On the other side of the tunnel, Detective Park Gwang Ho finds himself in the year 2017. The serial killer has resumed the killings that began 30 years ago. Detective Park Gwang Ho works with Detective Kim Sun Jae (Yoon Hyun Min) and Professor of Criminal Psychology Shin Jae Yi (Lee Yoo Young) to catch the killer. (Asianwiki)




Choi Jin-Hyuk - Park Gwang-Ho

Lee Yoo-Young- Shin Jae-yi

Yoon Hyun-Min - Kim Sun Jae


More info:


Lee Shi-A - Shin Yeon Suk (Park Gwang-Ho`s wife)

Kang Ki-Young - Song Min Ha

Cha Hak-Yeon ( N of VIXX ) as Park Kwang-Ho (name coincidence with the protagonist)

Jo Hee-Bong - Jeon Sung Sik

Choi Jin-hyuk plays the main character, an expert violent crimes detective named Park Kwang-ho, who leaves no stone unturned when it comes to scraping for clues. He’s so meticulous and zealous that he once hung out with a thief’s hyung for a month just to locate where the thief was hiding, and it worked. (cr.Dramabeans)

Yoon Hyun Min plays the role of Kim Sun Jae, an elite detective who rarely goes on-site. Suave and fashionably chic at first glance, he doesn’t seem like the stereotypical police investigator, but his intellect and skills are top-notch. His cold, calculating, evidence-based approach to cases is supposed to be a foil for Park Gwang Ho’s human-driven, hands-on approach. (Dramabeans)

Lee Yoo-young plays Shin Jae-yi, a U.K.-raised psychology lecturer with a Ph.D. The character wrote her thesis on serial killers who target women and is a recognized name in academic circles. Although she had no plans to teach in Korea, she is presented with the opportunity to do so and accepts, leading to her involvement in the case. (Dramabeans)






1. PDnim Kim Young Chul dropped out the drama in the middle of filming,citing the personal reason and he was replaced with PD Sin Yong Hwi.

@partyon, yes, I am aware of it, no romance in OCN dramas. Still there should be plenty of other things to nitpick, right? :P


Yes,  I can already warn you that the lighting in this drama is bad. :D I don't know why OCN wants to make dark and edgy dramas in the fashion that you sometimes hardly can see what's going on in some scenes. :D


Since I am a huge fan of thrillers, this one certainly didn't disappoint. I remember liking it (almost) as much as I liked Signal. Can't recall other flaws in it, but I guess I will remember once I start watching it. :D

Thanks for the tag @partyon :kiss_wink:


I'll do my best to join, if I can squeeze it in. If not, I'll be visiting the thread from time to time, to read the individual comments and views. :smile:


@MayanEcho, I've watched this drama so many times already & as much as I want to join, my schedule nowadays won't permit me.....sigh................ Like you, in case I'll be around here surely, I will drop by on this thread to comment perhaps or lurk - hahaha - :rickroll:


@partyon, thanks dear for the tag but, I've said this to you some days back. Also, thanks for making & putting this drama on your list. For me, it's a good series. It was a very nice crime drama with a side of time travel. For those who haven't watched this yet, well, if you are up to that kind of twists, I highly recommend Tunnel.  There was the perfect amount of romance in this drama; the plot, (it was mind-blowing) the suspense, the characters' bonds... PERFECT! This show is thriller and it definitely made my heart beat really fast in every episode. Nobody died, don't worry. hahaha - Guys, hope you enjoy re-watching or watching with a group! This is one of my favorites. I only wish the time travel aspect was a little more developed. :popcornjackson:

The drama must be really that good that you've seen it many times! But sadly, life, so even if I wanna say yes, I may not be able to. But for sure, I'd enjoy lurking whenever I can to read the posts.

I love really loved Tunnel..:approves:




There's nice blending of crime thriller and time travel with interesting casts.. It's not as scary as few other OCN dramas. I remember starting the drama before last two week remaining because I don't think watching a thriller drama ongoing is my thing. For me the main attraction in the drama was Choi Jin Hyuk, Yoon Hyun Min is nice too but who surprised me most was Lee Yoo Young here. Before Tunnel I've watched her in a movie but her deep acting and character transition in Tunnle left quite an impression in my mind. Above all I had fun watching how the major characters were very interesting and interacted with each other. 





Anyways, I can't say if I'm in or not yet.. But may be I'll visit time to time. :)


Edit: Just noticed drama's can be nominated for rewatch. I don't know if I can say it here but--




Don't know if there was any rewatch event done for Choi Jin Hyuk's legal drama Pride and Prejudice. In case it hasn't yet I would like to nominate it. Please tag me if it happens..) Thank You.
