Park Hae Jin, Lim Ji Yeon, Park Sung Woong, And More Stay Poker-Faced In Upcoming Drama “The Killing Vote” Poster

 

SBS’s upcoming drama “The Killing Vote” has dropped an intriguing main poster!

 

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 newly released poster features the emotionless facial expressions of the nine characters who are involved in the death penalty vote. At the center of the poster is Gae Tal along with the text in red that reads, “Would you like to participate in the vote?” Around Gae Tal are the three main characters Kwon Suk Joo (Park Sung Woong), Joo Hyun (Lim Ji Yeon), and Kim Moo Chan (Park Hae Jin).

 

On each side of Joo Hyun are Joo Hyun’s younger sister Joo Min (Kwon Ah Reum), a high school student aspiring to become a journalist, and Joo Min’s friend Kim Ji Hoon (Seo Young Joo).

 

Then, on the bottom row, there are Chae Do Hee (Choi Yu Hwa), a passionate journalist turned show host, Min Ji Young (Kim Yoo Mi), a member of the National Assembly who holds great power, and Lee Min Soo (Kim Kwon), a high school teacher who shows great interest in the death penalty vote.

 

The eight people, who appear to have no connection with each other at first glance, raise viewers’ curiosity as to why they are on the poster and how they are related to the death penalty vote.

Scheduled to premiere on August 10th, The Killing Vote is based on the popular webtoon of the same name. It presents a story of national participation in judgment, tracking down the enigmatic "Dog Mask" who conducts a national death penalty vote targeting heinous criminals, and execute them.

The drama stars Park Hae Jin as Kim Moo Chan, Park Sung Woong as Kwon Suk Joo, and Im Ji Yeon as Joo Hyun. Park Sung Woong portrays Kwon Suk Joo, a well-known legal scholar who, despite his reputation, committed the act of killing the criminal who sexually assaulted his 8-year-old daughter and turned himself in, currently serving a long-term sentence in prison. Expectations are high for Park Sung Woong, known for his powerful performances in various works, to deliver a multi-dimensional character at the boundary of good and evil.

On August 7th, the production team of The Killing Vote released two photos of Kwon Suk Joo, capturing the audience's attention. In the first photo, he appears as a legal scholar standing at a lectern, exuding an intelligent and intellectual aura with a neat hairstyle, glasses, and a gentle gaze. In contrast, the second photo shows Kwon Suk Joo dressed in a prisoner's uniform, confined in prison, displaying a sharper and chilling expression in his eyes.

 

Z87l3k_2f.jpg

 

 

Kwon Suk Joo can be seen as a victim, having lost his beloved daughter to a crime. However, even if it was driven by a desire for revenge, the fact that he personally killed the criminal places him in the role of an offender unable to escape from the burden of his actions. His character cannot be easily categorized as 100% good or 100% evil; it is complex and multi-dimensional. Thus, the portrayal requires powerful acting to evoke empathy from the viewers.

 

rN2Pbm_2f.jpg

 

As seen in the photos, Park Sung Woong flawlessly embodies the two completely different faces of Kwon Suk Joo, making it almost unbelievable that they are portrayed by the same actor. The production team of The Killing Vote expressed, "Park Sung Woong brilliantly brings out the softness and sharpness, delicacy and intensity, intellectual and cold aspects of Kwon Suk Joo's character, endowing him with convincing depth. We ask for much attention, and anticipation for Park Sung Woong's remarkable performance and chilling expressions perfectly depict the character's dual nature."

Premiere Watch: The Killing Vote

by missvictrix

 

Time slot: Thursdays
Broadcaster: SBS
Genre: Mystery, thriller, crime, noir
Episode count: 12

Reasons to watch: Premiering in a new 1x a week Thursday slot, The Killing Vote promises to be a noir thriller about the nature of justice. Having the masked vigilante as the antagonist (at least at the start) is an interesting take, since the good-but-bad-guy-against-the-system is more commonly our anti-hero. Still, this particular drama is ripe for twists, and kind of as with Longing for You, if there isn’t more than meets the eye (cop against the clock after evil baddie) then it’s likely to get boring fast. But with Park Hae-jin, Im Ji-yeon, and Park Sung-woong headlining, and the screenwriter of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, we have much reason to hope for a thrilling ride.

 

Though the drama will air one episode a week, the first two episodes will drop on the premiere date, just to get you hooked.

TL;DR: Masked vigilante tries to execute bad guys, and Park Hae-jin and co. try to stop it

“The Killing Vote” Premieres To Strong Ratings As “Longing For You” Rises To New All-Time High

SBS’s “The Killing Vote” is off to a promising start!

 

On August 10, the new action thriller starring Park Hae Jin, Lim Ji Yeon, and Park Sung Woong aired its highly-anticipated premiere. Although “The Killing Vote” was originally scheduled to air its first two episodes starting at 9 p.m. KST, there was a change in the programming schedule due to a special report on Typhoon Khanun—and so “The Killing Vote” wound up airing only its first episode at 10:10 p.m. instead.

 

Despite the sudden change in its broadcast schedule, “The Killing Vote” still managed to get off to a relatively strong start: according to Nielsen Korea, the drama’s first episode scored an average nationwide rating of 4.1 percent.

The Killing Vote: Episode 1 (First Impressions)

by solstices

When the law fails to hold criminals sufficiently accountable, ought the public take its stead? SBS’s crime noir The Killing Vote digs into this question as it sets the stage: in response to mounting fury over meager prison sentences, a masked vigilante offers citizens the chance to play jury in a nationwide killing vote. If the law won’t uphold justice, then the people will claim it themselves.

Editor’s note: This is an Episode 1 review only. For a place to chat about the entire drama as it airs, look out for the forthcoming Drama Hangout.
 
EPISODE 1

 

We open eight years ago, with detective KIM MU-CHAN (Park Hae-jin) sprinting through a rainy night. He’s in pursuit of KWON SEOK-JOO (Park Sung-woong), who’s currently plunging a knife into his daughter’s murderer. Again. And again. By the time Mu-chan arrives, the man is long dead, and Seok-joo turns to face him with an eerily blank look in his eyes.

Fast forward to the present day. Mu-chan is on a mission to track down an illegal broadcasting ring, aided by the undercover cyber crimes cop JOO HYUN (Im Ji-yeon). He bursts into the thugs’ underground hideout just in time, saving Hyun from a crisis and successfully apprehending the culprits.

However, Hyun notices Mu-chan sneakily planting evidence to secure a conviction — but he catches on, swiping her phone and leaving our resident whistleblower in the dust.

 

At the police station, the broadcasting boss is under suspicion for the death of a popular streamer. When the man refuses to confess, Mu-chan suddenly switches the interrogation cameras off and slams his head onto the table repeatedly. “Should I add assaulting an officer to your charges?” Mu-chan threatens, as blood trickles down his forehead. Whoa, Mu-chan does not hold back.

Meanwhile, Hyun is getting chewed out by her boss for not picking up his calls. Her teammate KIM JO-DAN (Go Geon-han) relays her phone to her, and she gets the rundown of Mu-chan — he’s scaled his way up to the top with his extreme methods, but he’s certainly not the apple of the higher-ups’ eyes.

The child pornography offender BAE KI-CHUL is released after a mere eighteen months in prison, and he’s every bit as unrepentant and cocky as you’d expect him to be. Mu-chan has little patience for such arrogance, and he deliberately loosens his grip on the piece of scum, allowing the furious protesters to drag Ki-chul away and stomp on him before he’s ushered into the car.

That night, Hyun helps her younger sister MIN (Kwon Ah-reum) clear up the malware on her computer. While doing so, she discovers an unusually large file — it’s a video of a man in a dog mask, threatening to eradicate the “rotten people” from society.

 

The next day, phones across the country light up with the same screen — an invitation to participate in a nationwide killing vote. Within the next hour, participants can decide on the fate of Bae Ki-chul. Should he be executed, or not?

 

Ki-chul scoffs at the idea, dismissing it as a powerless opinion poll and even voting in favor of his own execution. As expected, the vote passes with a majority of 84%, and Ki-chul awakes tied to a chair in his own hideout. The masked mastermind has a perverse, yet fitting, sense of justice — Ki-chul dies surrounded by the money he hoarded, filmed by a camera just like his victims were.

Releasing the video of Ki-chul’s murder, the vigilante announces that he will be conducting these killing votes biweekly. Those who have evaded the law will find themselves in his crosshairs, and it’s up to the public to sentence them — a majority vote exceeding 50% will lead to execution.

Park Sung Woong Is A Criminal Who Has A Close Relationship With Park Hae Jin In “The Killing Vote”

Park Sung Woong Is A Criminal Who Has A Close Relationship With Park Hae Jin In “The Killing Vote”

 

“The Killing Vote” has shared new stills of Park Hae Jin And Park Sung Woong!

 

Based on a popular 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.

 

Park Hae Jin plays Kim Moo Chan, the head of Team 1 of the regional investigation unit at the Southern Provincial Police Agency. Lim Ji Yeon plays the role of Joo Hyun, a fifth-year lieutenant at the Cyber Security Bureau of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. 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.

Spoilers

Eight years ago, when the person who killed kwon Suk Joo’s daughter was released from prison due to insufficient evidence, Kwon Suk Joo tracked him down and personally killed him. Kim Moo Chan witnessed Kwon Suk Joo killing his daughter’s murderer. However, Kim Moo Chan addressed Kwon Suk Joo as hyung, which showed that they had a close relationship.

 

During his trial, Kwon Suk Joo uttered the words “innocent demon” in court, so when Joo Hyun hears the words “innocent demon” in Gae Tal’s video, she goes to Moo Chan, who was the detective in charge of the case at that time. Joo Hyun told Moo Chan that Kwon Suk Joo is the culprit behind the national death penalty vote case, leaving Moo Chan baffled.

 

In the released stills, Kwon Suk Joo is dressed in his prison uniform and standing in court as a defendant. Kim Moo Chan is captured with a confused facial expression as he watches Kwon Suk Joo from behind.

 

The stills draw curiosity for why Kim Moo Chan addressed Kwon Suk Joo as hyung and why he looked bewildered when Joo Hyun said the words “innocent demon.”

The production team of “The Killing Vote” commented, “In the second episode which will air on August 17, clues about the connection between Kim Moo Chan and Kwon Suk Joo will begin to emerge little by little. The solid and powerful performances of Park Hae Jin and Park Sung Woong will intensify the viewers’ curiosity and immersion in the drama. Please show lots of anticipation and interest.”

 

The next episode of “The Killing Vote” will air on August 17 at 9 p.m. KST.

The SBS Thursday drama The Killing Vote, which premiered on the 10th, is a participatory drama where citizens engage in a death penalty vote for heinous criminals and track down the enigmatic identity known as 'Dog Mask' who executes the death sentences. Particularly noteworthy from the first episode was the appearance of 'Dog Mask,' an unknown figure who claims the death penalty vote as their own.

One day, a message arrives on the smartphones of the entire nation, allowing them to vote on the death penalty for child exploitation offender Bae Gi Chul (Kim Min Shik), who was released after serving an absurdly short sentence. The vote surpasses 50% approval, and Bae Gi Chul's body is found the following day. 'Dog Mask' sends a video of Bae Gi Cheol moments before his death to the smartphones of the entire nation, causing shock.

In response, the police established a special investigation unit for the death penalty vote and appointed Kim Moo Chan (Park Hae Jin) as the team leader. Amidst this, cyber investigation officer Joo Hyun (Im Ji Yeon) seeks out Kim Moo Chan. Joo Hyun had discovered a video on her younger brother's laptop that she believed was related to 'Dog Mask' and requested a formal investigation, but her request was blatantly ignored. Subsequently, a previously unimaginable event occurs with 'Dog Mask' involved, resulting in the death penalty vote incident.

 

x4kkrz_2f.jpg

 

Joo Hyun talks to Kim Moo Chan about the video, mentioning the possibility of an "innocent demon" which could be a crucial clue in the death penalty vote case. Upon hearing the term "innocent demon," Kim Moo Chan's expression changes instantly. He, who doesn't seem easily flustered, begins to falter. The meaning behind "innocent demon" and whether it holds significance to the death penalty vote case becomes a point of heightened curiosity among viewers. In addition, whether Joo Hyun will join the special investigation unit becomes another critical point of interest. 

 

qYkkBz_2f.jpg

 

The production team of The Killing Vote stated, "Starting from the 2nd episode airing on the 17th, the full-fledged pursuit of 'Dog Mask' centered around the police's special investigation unit will commence. The 'innocent demon' brought by Joo Hyun, which is vital for resolving the case, will be a significant key, regardless of the extent to which Kim Moo Chan is willing to go to solve the incident. Joo Hyun will begin to chase 'Dog Mask' in her way. Park Hae Jin and Im Ji Yeon's unwavering performances will induce tight suspense. We ask for a lot of interest in whether Joo Hyun will join the special investigation unit and the intense acting by the two actors."

Will Joo Hyun join the special investigation unit? With the full-scale pursuit of 'Dog Mask' underway, the intense tension of episode 2 of The Killing Vote aired on August 17th, Thursday at 9 PM.

Lim Ji Yeon Discovers Damning Evidence About The Dog Mask In “The Killing Vote”

Aug 23, 2023
by M. Lim
 

Lim Ji Yeon has made a significant discovery in the upcoming episode of “The Killing Vote”!

Based on a popular 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.

Park Hae Jin plays Kim Moo Chan, the head of Team 1 of the regional investigation unit at the Southern Provincial Police Agency. Lim Ji Yeon plays the role of Joo Hyun, a fifth-year lieutenant at the Cyber Security Bureau of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.

Spoilers

In the previous episode of “The Killing Vote,” the second nationwide death penalty vote took place as promised by Gae Tal. The target of this case was a murderer who had killed three husbands and claimed a hefty insurance sum of 10 billion won (approximately $7.5 million). Kim Moo Chan (Park Hae Jin), the leader of the Special Investigation Team for the case, bravely put himself in harm’s way to protect innocent citizens. Ultimately, the vehicle that he rode with the murderer blew up by a bomb set by Gae Tal. As Kim Moo Chan grapples with this dire situation, viewers are left wondering if the police can catch Gae Tal.

The newly released stills show Joo Hyun stumbling upon a crucial clue connected to Gae Tal. In the dead of night, illuminated solely by her flashlight, Joo Hyun searches an empty room in darkness. In the following photos, her expression turns to one of surprise as she spots something written in vivid red ink on the wall: “The 13th was wrong.” The mystery deepens as questions arise about where Joo Hyun is and what the phrase means.

The production team commented, “In Episode 3, Joo Hyun discovers a vital clue related to Gae Tal. As Kim Moo Chan faces the biggest crisis in his life yet, Joo Hyun demonstrates her quick decision-making skills and sharp judgment in order to track Gae Tal. Lim Ji Yeon showcases tremendous focus and energy as she portrays Joo Hyun, a character who won’t hesitate to put herself on the line for justice. Thanks to her performance, we believe we’ve effectively captured the gripping suspense of the drama. We kindly ask for your keen interest and anticipation [for the upcoming episode].”

The next episode of “The Killing Vote” will air on August 24 at 9 p.m. KST.

SBS’s new drama “The Killing Vote” has dropped 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. Park Hae Jin stars as Kim Moo Chan, an investigation team leader at a provincial police agency, while Lim Ji Yeon plays Joo Hyun, a lieutenant who works for the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Cyber Security Bureau.

Spoilers

Previously, the second national death penalty vote took place as Gae Tal forecasted. This time, the target was Eom Eun Kyung (Jung Hae Na), who drove her three husbands to death and received 10 billion won (approximately $7.6 million) for insurance on her spouses’ deaths but was released due to insufficient evidence. Kim Moo Chan hopped on Eom Eun Kyung’s car where Gae Tal planted a time bomb and provoked Gae Tal over the phone, asking if it is still justice that he claims to be if he were to get sacrificed together with the target. However, Gae Tal did not stop the clock, and eventually the bomb exploded.

In the midst of all this, the newly released stills feature Joo Hyun looking at the car engulfed in flames with desperate eyes. Viewers are curious to find out whether Kim Moo Chan is really dead or not.

The production team remarked, “In episode 3, which airs today (August 24), whether Kim Moo Chan is dead or alive will be revealed. On top of this, the perspectives of the media, the people, and public opinion begin to diverge after the incident of the second national death penalty vote. Whether it is positive or negative, [the incident] shows that the killing vote has an enormous ripple effect, and it will also make viewers reflect on ‘righteous justice’ once again. We ask for lots of interest and anticipation from the viewers.”

The next episode of “The Killing Vote” will air on August 24 at 9 p.m. KST. Stay tuned!

Of particular note is the gripping excitement of the suspenseful chase during the pursuit of Dog Mask. This suspense thriller genre is the highlight of The Killing Vote. A notable example is the scene in the 2nd episode where Joo Hyun (Im Ji Yeon) meets Kwon Seok Joo (Park Sung Woong).

Joo Hyun connects Kwon Seok Joo to the phrase "innocent demon" that Dog Mask shouted during the mock trial. This connection is due to Kwon Seok Joo's act of personally murdering the criminal who raped and killed his 8-year-old daughter eight years ago, then turning himself in. At the time, Kwon Seok Joo referred to himself as the "innocent demon" during the trial. His refusal to meet anyone before, yet agreeing to meet Joo Hyun after hearing the phrase "innocent demon" and challenges her to guess the next target of the national death penalty vote, is significant.

The production team of The Killing Vote has unveiled glimpses of Joo Hyun revisiting the Cheongnang Correctional Institution just before the 3rd episode's broadcast on the 24th. Joo Hyun's determination to uncover another clue related to Dog Mask is evident. In contrast, Kwon Seok Joo walks with an emotionless expression toward an unknown destination. His piercing gaze piques intense curiosity. The question remains whether Kwon Seok Joo and Joo Hyun will cross paths once again.
