In the drama series, Ji Sung will play Detective Jang Jae-Kyeong. He is a detective with strong convictions. Jeon Mi-Do will play Reporter Oh Yoon-Jin. She is highly opinionated and outspoken. They somehow come together to work on a case.

“Connection” first airs sometime next year in South Korea.

Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki: Jang Jae-Kyeong (Ji Sung) is an ace detective on the drug task force at Anhyeon Police Station. His life’s motto is that weakness in success happens when personal connections and supporters are involved. To avoid that pitfall, he keeps a distance from friends, fellow police officers, and even his own family when he senses it could cause trouble. He is a person with strong convictions and principles. A crisis then occurs in his life. He is forced to become addicted to drugs by someone. With the death of his friend as a clue, he reveals the whole story of connections within a 20 year corrupt friendship.

Meanwhile, Oh Yoon-Jin (Jeon Mi-Do) is a local news reporter for the Anhyeon Economic Daily Newspaper. She is very self-assertive and says things without reserve. Due to her personality, she was unfairly fired at her previous job. It wasn’t easy for her to get hired in the same field. She decided to focus her reporting on corruption and return to Anhyeon City. As a reporter for the Anhyeon Economic Daily Newspaper, she gets involved with Detective Jang Jae-Kyeong.

 20231230044701_Ji-Sung.jpg?s=900x600&e=tWatch: Ji Sung Walks Into A Dangerous Trap Of Addiction In Thrilling Teaser For “Connection”

Dec 30, 2023
by E. Cha
 

SBS has shared a suspenseful sneak peek of its upcoming drama “Connection”!

“Connection” is a new crime thriller starring Ji Sung as Jang Jae Kyung, a well-respected detective who is the ace of the narcotics unit. Jeon Mi Do will star as Oh Yoon Jin, an opinionated and outspoken reporter who works at a newspaper.

The newly released special teaser begins with a news report announcing that drug-related crimes have been rapidly increasing and that the government is waging a war on drugs. Viewers are then introduced to Jang Jae Kyung, the principled and highly skilled detective who is “the pride of the narcotics unit.”

However, Jang Jae Kyung’s world is suddenly turned upside down one day when he falls into a trap. After receiving a mysterious text message from someone called “Doctor,” Jang Jae Kyung is viciously attacked from behind—and when he wakes up, he finds that he is now addicted to drugs, entirely against his will.

As Jang Jae Kyung struggles with his new addiction, someone asks in voice-over, “A detective in the narcotics unit is doing drugs?!” When a man remarks, “Something does smell fishy about this,” Oh Yoon Jin responds by nodding confidently. She goes on to ask someone, “They’re trying to cover up this incident, right?”

Meanwhile, Jang Jae Kyung is seen running and struggling to catch his breath as a woman asks him, “Detective Jang, why are you like this these days?” The preview ends with him saying, “Even I have no idea where and from whom the connections begin.”

“Connection” will premiere sometime in 2024.

Ji Sung hunts for the conspiracy Connection in first teaser

by tccolb

 

Giving us an early sneak peek before the looming new year, SBS released a special teaser for the new crime-thriller Connection, where a dark and dire scheme is conspiring for our two leads: Ji Sung (Adamas) and Jeon Mi-do (Thirty-Nine).

The trailer begins with a slew of news reports, where we learn that South Korea has become mired in a sudden surge of drug-related crimes and the government has declared a war against drugs. We’re then introduced to our hero Jang Jae-kyung (Ji Sung), a police inspector who is considered the pride of the drug investigations team and is well-respected by his adoring colleagues.

 

 

But what happens when even Jae-kyung gets dragged into the pit of drugs? Lured by a mysterious text message from someone called “Doctor,” we watch as our cop is kidnapped and drugged against his will. Enter journalist Oh Yoon-jin (Jeon Mi-do) who hears the shocking news that someone on the drug investigations police unit has allegedly used drugs himself.

Her co-worker explains that it was “lemon meth” and although Yoon-jin is excited to nab an exclusive story, they also worry that there’s something suspicious about the whole thing. As they further investigate, Yoon-jin astutely realizes that the police are trying to cover up the case and brush it under the rug.

Meanwhile, a panicked Jae-kyung is trying to discover the truth and the teaser ends as he desperately wonders where the connection to everything starts.

Directed by PD Kim Moon-kyo (Trolley) with writing by Lee Hyun (Diary of a Prosecutor), SBS’s Connection is slated to broadcast in 2024.
