Actor-singer Jang Keun-suk is set to return to the small screen for the first time in four years in a new Coupang Play series titled "Chronicles of Crime" (tentative).
The series is a crime thriller about a detective portrayed by Jang who investigates unsolved crimes. 
Other leads in the series are actor Heo Sung-tae who plays a con man and actor Lee Elijah who plays a reporter. 
Coupang Play announced that the series will begin shooting this year. 


Jang went on a hiatus in 2018 after enlisting to serve mandatory military service. He completed his service in July 2020 and has been working as a singer, releasing a Japanese chart-topping EP "Day by Day" in August last year. 
His last on-screen appearances were in tvN's "A Korean Odyssey," SBS's "Switch" and film "Human, Space, Time and Human," all released in 2018.
Jang debuted as an actor in the HBS sitcom "Selling Happiness" in 1997.

[News] Jang Keun Suk, Heo Sung Tae, Lee Elijah, And More Confirmed For Crime Thriller By Director Of “Voice” And “The Guest”
Coupang Play has shared photos from the first script reading of director Kim Hong Sun’s new drama!

Director Kim Hong Sun of “Voice,” “The Guest,” and “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area” is set to return with “Chronicle of Crime” (literal translation)! The new Coupang Play drama is a crime thriller about uncovering the truth behind unsolved past cases through vicious current cases.


“Chronicle of Crime” has officially confirmed their main cast with photos from their first script reading, which was held on August 23. The cast includes Jang Keun Suk, Heo Sung Tae, Lee Elijah, Lee Sung Wook, Lee Seung Joon, Park Myung Hoon, Oh Yeon Ah, Lee Won Jong, and more.

Global star Jang Keun Suk who has been active in films, dramas, and music, will transform into Goo Do Han, a lawyer and special homicide detective. At the reading, Jang Geun Suk displayed excellent synchronization with the character who is only moderately secular and moderately just.


Heo Sung Tae, who has recently appeared in hit projects like “Squid Game,” “Beyond Evil,” and “Hunt,” will star as Noh Sang Cheon, a man who was born to be a scammer. In his specialty villain role, Heo Sung Tae will add vulgarity and meanness to his character to perfectly portray an upgraded image.


Lee Elijah has already showcased her wide acting spectrum through roles in “Fight For My Way,” “Miss Hammurabi,” “The Last Empress,” and “Chief of Staff,” and will now portray the hot-blooded reporter Cheon Na Yeon. The character is always prepared to battle and will be an image that Lee Elijah has yet to showcase.

Stay tuned to see what kind of synergy these actors will have with hit director Kim Hong Sun and how this interesting, refreshing, and realistic crime thriller unfolds. “Chronicle of Crime” will start filming in the second half of the year.

As Park Myung-hoon, who left a strong impression on each work with his acting skills that can feel the solid inner workings, his activities in 'Crime Chronicle' are attracting attention.


Park Myung-hoon is very active in creating strong characters with his deep acting skills in each work. He is an actor who revealed the potential of a luxury actor. He received great acclaim from global audiences for his terrifying performances in the movie ‘Parasite’, and then showed various acting skills in the films ‘Save Me from Evil’, ‘Voice’, ‘Sana-Hee Pure Love’, and ‘Blood of a Policeman’. In particular, Netflix's 'Paper House: Common Economic Zone Part 1' drew the world's attention once again with a hot performance that maximized the duality of the character, and continued to work without a break until the recently released movie 'Limit'.
