Lee Je Hoon will soon be starring in an exciting new drama!

On April 24, MBC officially announced that Lee Je Hoon was confirmed to star in its upcoming drama “Chief Inspector 1963” (working title).

“Chief Inspector 1963” will serve as a prequel to the classic Korean series “Chief Inspector,” which ran for 18 years from 1971 to 1989 and achieved an incredible peak of 70 percent ratings back in its heyday. While the original show was set in the 1970s and 1980s (present day at the time), “Chief Inspector 1963” will be set even earlier, in the 1960s.

Lee Je Hoon will be playing a younger version of the titular chief inspector Park Young Han, who was played by Choi Bool Am in the original series. While Choi Bool Am’s Park Young Han was already a fully-formed detective, Lee Je Hoon’s version of the character will be younger and more naive—and he will struggle with his fury against the cruel reality of a world that crushes people’s dignity.

The new drama will also follow the journey of Park Young Han forming a team with the beloved detectives that made up his squad in the original show.

“Chief Inspector 1963” is scheduled to begin filming in the second half of 2023.

Are you excited to see Lee Je Hoon in this new prequel?

Lee Je Hoon Confirmed for MBC Drama Chief Inspector 1963 Reviving Hit Drama From the 1970s/1980s

Lee Je Hoon selected for the lead role in “Chief Inspector 1963″…Play the youth of Choi Bool Am’s character

 

Actor Lee Je Hoon will appear as Park Young Han in MBC’s drama “Chief Inspector 1963 (working title)”.

On April 24th, MBC reported on Lee Je Hoon‘s casting. MBC’s new drama “Chief Inspector 1963 (working title)” (directed by Kim Sung Hoon, written by Kim Young Shin, created by Park Jae Beom, produced by Barunson Studio) is a remake of MBC’s legendary drama “Chief Inspector”. “Chief Inspector” is a drama about “Korea’s Columbo” Choi Bool Am solving crimes. 880 episodes were broadcast from 1971 to 1989. “Chief Inspector” was greatly loved by the entire nation.

 

Lee Je Hoon will play the youth of “Park Young Han”, the role played by actor Choi Bool Am in “Chief Inspector”. If Park Young Han played by Choi Bool Am was loved as a perfect detective, Lee Je Hoon’s young Park Young Han in “Chief Inspector 1963 (working title)” will show another charm as a detective who fights hard in anger at the reality that tramples on human dignity.

Lee Je Hoon showed impressive acting through various works such as tvN’s “Signal”, SBS’ “Taxi Driver”, Netflix’s “Move to Heaven” and the movies “Bleak Night”, “Architecture 101”, “Anarchist from Colony”, “I Can Speak”.

MBC’s retro crime investigation drama “Chief Inspector 1963 (working title)” will begin filming in the second half of this year.

Definitely a hat tip to the British series "Endeavour," a series featuring a young detective Morse in the 60's through early 70's, which was a prequel series to the popular series "Chief Inspector Morse," which ran from 1989-2000.

[Exclusive] Jeong Su-bin, working with Lee Je-hoon this time?

 

IDB76ZZY33ZB5EYVGYL34OXWSM.jpg

 

On the 30th June, an official from J Wide Company, the agency, told OSEN, "Actor Jeong Su-bin is discussing a role in the drama 'Chief Investigator 1963'." Details such as casting were not disclosed.

Soo

Bin Jung is an actress who took on the role of Baek Mi-Joo in the drama 'Boy Judgment' and Baek Seon-Yu in 'You and My Police Class. It has filled the void of Saeron.

Because of this, Soo-bin Jeong, who won her first public TV lead role, had to analyze the character in a short time, but through 'Trolley', she perfectly digested the dubious character who controlled the twist of the narrative and received favorable reviews from viewers for her amazing acting skills.

Meanwhile, 'Chief Investigator 1963' is a prequel drama to 'Chief Investigator' (set in the 1970s and 1980s), the first Korean crime investigation drama and loved as a national drama with the highest viewership rating of 70%. It is set in the 1960s, 10 years earlier than the previous 'Chief Investigator'.

 

In addition, 'Chief of Investigation 1963' is a story about detective Park Young-han, who is reborn as a detective for the people while fighting ugly crimes as a team with three colleagues full of personality, in the age of barbarism, and is scheduled to start filming in the second half of this year.

With actor Lee Jae-hoon portraying the younger version of the iconic South Korean detective Park, played by Choi Bul-am, who was fully supported and loved by viewers, it will be interesting to see if he can work with Jung Soo-bin.

Lee Je Hoon's new K-drama Chief Inspector: The Beginning drops a trailer. 

Chief Inspector: The Beginning is a prequel to Chief Inspector. It takes place in 1958 when Detective Park Young Han (Lee Je Hoon) was appointed to Seoul.

Set in an era of chaos, the drama tells the story of Detective Park Young Han, who specializes in catching petty thieves, joining forces with three colleagues to shatter the norms of corrupt authority.

The K-drama has retro vibes, evoking nostalgia for the late 19s era.

The trailer opens with Detective Park Young Han confidently introducing himself after arriving in Seoul. He boasts that he has the "Top Arrest Rate for Petty Thieves in Gyeonggi Province." His relentless pursuit of criminals through gambling dens, markets, and muddy streets portrays his passion for his work.

As the narrative unfolds in the tumultuous year 1958, the drama trailer shows that investigations in Seoul in those days were far from easy. From murder cases to car explosions and showdowns with wrongdoers using guns and bare fists, Park Young Han and his comrades face moments of frustration, anger, and tears together.

Nevertheless, Park Young Han emphatically states, "There are only two things we need to remember. Protect the weak and beat the bad guys."

Taxi Driver actor Lee Je Hoon plays the young Park Young Han, the character originally played by Choi Bool Am in Chief Inspector. He is a detective who believes in retribution, is angry, and struggles against the harsh reality where human dignity is unabashedly trampled. 

Lee Dong Hwi transforms into Kim Sang Soon, known as the "Crazy Dog" at the Jongnam Police Station. He is a detective who does things his way and is weary of a reality tainted by corruption. After meeting Park Young Han, his life takes a turning point.

Choi Woo Sung plays Cho Kyung Hwan, a young man with exceptional strength.  Additionally, Yoon Hyun Soo plays Seo Ho Jeong, who dreams of becoming an investigator.

Chief Inspector: The Beginning is scheduled to air sometime in 2024. Watch the trailer below

Lee Je-hoon and squad put away baddies in new teaser

by Jenzy

Chief_Detective-1958-teaserSM1.jpg

 

he teaser for MBC’s upcoming cop show Chief Detective 1958 just dropped, showcasing a young detective Lee Je-hoon (Taxi Driver 2) ready to kick butt and take names on the streets of 1950s Seoul.

More than just a blast to the past in its setting, the show also serves as a prequel to the insanely popular 70s and 80s show Chief Inspector where Choi Bool-am played the lead role of Park Young-han. Instead of seeing a seasoned detective work crimes, the prequel takes us more than ten years back to when a young Young-han (Lee Je-hoon) was a headstrong rookie cop. Holding the record for most arrests back in his hometown province, the story follows Young-han as he arrives in Seoul with a fistful of righteous indignation and tenacity, only to find the city filled with more crime and corruption than he could have ever expected.

 

But thankfully, Young-han isn’t the only one with a taste for justice. After befriending three other cops played by Lee Dong-hwi (Big Bet), Choi Woo-sung (Melancholia), and Yoon Hyun-soo (A Good Day to Be a Dog), Young-han and the dream team work together to take down criminals and put them away.

The teaser opens with Young-han’s introduction to the Seoul police force, and we quickly cut to the low moments for him and his team: bank robberies, murders, and car explosions that take the lives of innocents. As he looks at one of the victim’s family members through a window, Young-han solemnly vows: “I will catch the perpetrator no matter what.”

We then cut to an upbeat montage of them fighting mobs and being young goofy cops trying to make a difference in a system that fails to punish the wrong and protect the weak. Their idealism is infectious, and when they strut through the door as a quartet in the final scene of the teaser, the voiceover hammers home what we’re already beginning to see: this is the start of something big.

Written by Kim Young-shin and directed by Kim Sung-hoon (Rampant), MBC’s Chief Inspector 1958 will air sometime this year.

Lee Je Hoon, Lee Dong Hwi, Seo Eun Soo, And More Impress At Script Reading For “Chief Detective 1958”

Feb 7, 2024
 

MBC’s upcoming drama “Chief Detective 1958” has shared photos and a video from its script reading!

“Chief Detective 1958” will serve as a prequel to the classic Korean series “Chief Inspector,” which ran for 18 years from 1971 to 1989 and achieved an incredible peak of 70 percent ratings back in its heyday. While the original show was set in the 1970s and 1980s (present day at the time), “Chief Detective 1958” will be set even earlier, in 1958. The drama will follow the story of Park Young Han, a passionate detective who boasts the highest arrest rate of petty thieves, as he teams up with three charismatic colleagues to break the norms of corruption.

Director Kim Sung Hoon and writer Kim Young Shin were both present at the script reading, along with cast members Lee Je Hoon, Lee Dong Hwi, Choi Woo Sung, Yoon Hyun Soo, Seo Eun Soo, Choi Duk Moon, Jung Soo Bin, and Choi Bool Am.

Lee Je Hoon perfectly transformed into the younger version of Park Young Han, a tough detective who has just come to Seoul from the countryside. Lee Je Hoon skillfully portrayed Park Young Han’s tenacity and determination for justice, while also showcasing his humane side.
