Actress Kwak Sun Young takes on the challenge of action acting in Crash.

In the K-drama, the actress plays the role of Min So Hee, the chief of TCI who will do anything to solve a case. 

Expressing her excitement, she said, "The script was really interesting," adding, "Especially, the line 'Grabbing the steering wheel instead of a knife' left a strong impression on me." The Hospital Playlist actress remarked, "I was surprised to learn that accidents caused by cars, which are usually thought of as a means of transportation, are more numerous and diverse than I thought."

Noting the significance of the drama's theme and message, Kwak Sun Young revealed the reason for choosing the project: "[Imagining] the TCI team tracking down villains on the road and capturing them made me feel exhilarated to the point where I thought, 'I definitely want to try this.'"

Min So Hee is a character who possesses all the qualifications and skills required for the job of a detective, such as martial arts and exceptional driving skills. Therefore, Kwak Sun Young had to acquire the necessary action skills for her drama character.




Contrary to the expectations of it being challenging for someone going to the action school for the first time since her debut, Kwak Sun Young said her experience was "exciting and enjoyable." She continued, "Of course, I had concerns about [how I would manage to] get it all together during the actual shooting, but thanks to the good planning by the martial arts director and the cooperation of the martial arts team, there weren't any major difficulties."









Commenting about her character, the actress said, "Min So Hee is not only skilled but also deeply committed to justice and has a lot of integrity. She never bends in the face of injustice but also knows how to handle crises flexibly," said Kwak Sun Young.

Inviting viewers to tune in to the drama, the actress said, "I hope viewers can feel and enjoy all the passion and effort the TCI team has put into solving traffic crimes". She concluded by saying, "From scorching summers to chilly winters, everyone worked really hard. I hope viewers will watch attentively how the members of TCI come together to solve various traffic crime incidents."

Crash will premiere on May 13. More news about the K-drama's global OTT streaming service is yet to come.

Heo Sung Tae Transforms Into The Team Leader Of The Traffic Crime Investigation Team In "Crash"

Apr 18, 2024
by D Lee

ENA has released new stills of their upcoming drama “Crash”!

“Crash” is a crime investigation drama about a Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) team that tracks crimes that occur on the road.

In this drama, Heo Sung Tae will finally portray a character that is a team leader who formed the TCI team out of analysis of a lack of system in combating traffic crimes. A veteran detective in the violent crimes division, Jung Chae Man is a compassionate leader who takes care of his fellows and is able to see the whole picture in complex scenarios.

In these stills, Heo Sung Tae appears with a seemingly more relaxed look compared to the characters he played in previous projects. Heo Sung Tae commented that this new project is a challenge for him and that he will show a new side of himself through this.









Heo Sung Tae added that in order to portray the character more realistically, he decided to not put on any makeup and to use the Gyeongsang Province dialect in place of standard Korean, which will draw more viewers’ attention and anticipation.

“Crash” will air on May 13 at 10 p.m. KST. Stay tuned!

Actor Heo Sung Tae sheds his villain image and returns to the small screen as a passionate detective driven by justice in Crash. 

The actor takes on the role of Jung Chae Man, the team leader of the Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) squad, who formed the team by handpicking each member, each of whom he considers a hidden gem, and serves as a supportive leader, aiding his team members in developing their skills. 

Heo Sung Tae described his character as the linchpin of the team, who takes care of the team members, knows how to draw the big picture, and is a leader who values justice.






Having portrayed villain roles in the past, Heo Sung Tae expressed that he saw this role as a challenge. The one who inspired this challenge was director Park Joon Woo. The actor said, "The time we spent shooting together was really great. When such a great director said he thinks that I, who has played many villain roles, can play the role of Jung Chae Man well, there is no reason not to do it." 

The actor pointed out that Jung Chae Man's charm lies in his silliness. Moreover, Jung Chae Man's hobby of quoting Chinese idioms and ancient poems, with Heo Sung Tae's comic acting added, is expected to bring comic relief in Crash. 




Heo Sung Tae also commented on the team, stating, "The team's synergy is amazing. We couldn't be more united as a team."

He continued, "I was fascinated by actor Lee Min Ki's cool and unpretentious demeanor. Any actor will find it easy to collaborate with Kwak Sun Young. She's a truly talented actress. Actor Lee Ho Chul, with whom I've worked for the fourth time in the same production, was very amiable, and actress Choi Moon Hee, the youngest, actively contributed as the mood maker on set, so I'm grateful to her for that."

Heo Sung Tae's wish is for Crash to be watched by many people. He said, "When I first received the script, I found it fascinating that it handled such a heavy issue easily."

He revealed the reason for choosing the drama, saying, "I thought it [traffic crime] was something many people should be aware of," and didn't forget to urge people to tune in, adding, "It's a drama full of joys and sorrows, so please look forward to it."

Crash will premiere on May 13. More news about the K-drama's global OTT streaming service is yet to come.

20240424005011_crash1.jpg?s=900x600&e=tWatch: Lee Min Ki, Kwak Sun Young, And Heo Sung Tae Showcase Comical Synergy As A Capable Team In "Crash" Teaser

Apr 24, 2024

Upcoming drama “Crash” has released a new teaser!

“Crash” is a crime investigation drama about a Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) team that tracks crimes that occur on the road.

Lee Min Ki will play rational individualist Cha Yeon Ho, the new head of the Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) team, who graduated from KAIST. Kwak Sun Young will star as Min So Hee, the ace of the TCI team, who possesses incredible martial arts and driving skills along with keen judgment and a warm heart. Heo Sung Tae will portray Jung Chae Man, a compassionate and veteran team leader who formed the TCI team out of analysis of a lack of system in combating traffic crimes.

The new teaser highlights various comical scenes demonstrating the peculiarities of each character. Cha Yeon Ho, a KAIST graduate who would be better off somewhere else, defies everyone’s expectations of him as a flawless person by portraying a rather awkward but a much more humane personality. Contrary to his clean-cut and strong appearance, he gets easily flipped over by Min So Hee, who asks him, “How do you want to be a police if you are so fragile?” Min So Hee, on the other hand, portrays a tough and brave police who is fearless, including her reckless but impeccable driving skills.

As proud members of the TCI, they do not shrink from their responsibilities and keep tracking down crimes no matter what, and their synergistic team play drives high anticipation for the drama.

20240425174253_crash-1-1.jpg?s=900x600&eLee Min Ki And Kwak Sun Young Showcase An Ideal Senior-Junior Relationship In Upcoming Drama “Crash”

Apr 26, 2024
by J Lee

ENA’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Crash” has shared a sneak peek of the show ahead of its premiere!

“Crash” is a crime investigation drama about a Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) team that tracks crimes that occur on the road.

Lee Min Ki will play rational individualist Cha Yeon Ho, a KAIST graduate who recently joined the TCI team. Kwak Sun Young will star as Min So Hee, the ace of the TCI team, who possesses incredible martial arts and driving skills along with keen judgment and a warm heart.

The two characters first meet when Yeon Ho worked as an insurance investigator, during which both of them handled the same incident. Later, as Cha Yeon Ho joins the TCI team, Min So Hee guides him through his initial settling-down phase, gradually fostering camaraderie between them.

What’s particularly interesting about their relationship is their contrasting characteristics. Despite impeccable qualifications, including his education, experiences, and certifications, Cha Yeon Ho struggles with social skills and reading the room. He also lacks physical strength, making Min So Hee step in and personally teach him jujutsu. As apparent from her voluntary training session, Min So Hee possesses grit and perseverance, enabling her to take down criminals with her innate agility and martial arts skills honed from numerous real-life experiences.

The newly released stills offer a glimpse of the evolving dynamics of their relationship as they train and share moments over coffee.




Lee Min Ki remarked on their relationship, calling it an “ideal senior-junior relationship in the office where guidance and learning go hand in hand,” while describing Min So Hee as a “nice, reliable senior.” Kwak Sun Young echoed this sentiment, emphasizing how Cha Yeon Ho’s thoughtful approach complements Min So Hee’s instinctive reactions, allowing them to solve cases together.

Premiere Watch: Crash

by missvictrix



Time slot: Monday-Tuesday
Broadcaster: ENA
Genre: Action, crime, comedy
Episode count: 12
Global streamer: Disney+

Reasons to watch: In case you don’t think K-dramas already feature enough road accidents, destroyed vehicles, and traumatized chaebols, we now have a drama solely focused on traffic crimes of all sorts. Taking up the genre of an action comedy (with some crime and mystery thrown in), we have Lee Min-ki, Kwak Sun-young, and Heo Sung-tae in our traffic crimes investigation unit. The promos lead up to expect hijinks, jokes, interdepartmental tension (ooo la la), and lots and lots of car chases. Buckle up.


TL;DR: Lee Min-ki, Kwak Sun-young, and Heo Sung-tae are a traffic crime unit (watch out, Truck of Doom!)

Crash: Episode 1 (First Impressions)

by solstices


Jam-packed with zany comedy, heart-pumping action, and a deceitfully despicable villain of the week, Crash kickstarts its vehicular crime-busting journey in style. Though said style comprises offbeat humor and ridiculous wigs — but that’s a bonus, isn’t it?



Right off the bat, we’re introduced to the Traffic Crime Investigation (TCI) unit, a small squad of four specializing in — you guessed it — vehicular crimes. Stuck somewhere in between the criminal division and the traffic division, the TCI is the black sheep that doesn’t quite fit in anywhere. Still, despite being looked down upon by their fellow officers, they fulfill their duties with resilient diligence and a fighting spirit.

At the heart of the team is the gung-ho MIN SO-HEE (Kwak Sun-young), who tricks a car dealer into revealing his scam together with her partner EO HYUN-KYUNG (Moon-hee). Joined by team leader JUNG CHAE-MAN (Heo Sung-tae) — who’s hilariously out of touch with modern pop culture — and gentle giant WOO DONG-KI (Lee Ho-chul), they proceed to take down the illegal dealers in a hilariously action-packed sequence.

Amidst the flying fists, bespectacled insurance investigator CHA YEON-HO (Lee Min-ki) gets caught in the fray, knocked out by So-hee’s mighty punch. Meek and polite, he winds up getting carted back to the police station, where his name card alerts So-hee to her blunder. Yeon-ho isn’t the least bit upset at being treated like a criminal; instead, he gives So-hee a manila envelope containing a serial murder case he’d like her team to investigate.


So-hee doesn’t spare it much thought, but when she loses the kind neighborhood granny to a traffic accident, she runs into Yeon-ho again at the wake. Disappointed by her lack of action, Yeon-ho remarks that she’s just like the others — he’d given the case to three other police stations, to no avail. Chastised, So-hee pores over the case files all night.

That brings us to our case of the week. JUNG HO-GYU (Bae Yoo-ram) is a heartless perpetrator of insurance fraud, who targets elderly women to pay off their relatives with meager sums of settlement money. Exploiting their sympathy with a sob story and guileless puppy eyes, Ho-gyu evades a court case time and time again — then profits from the insurance payout.


All the evidence gathered so far is purely circumstantial, which raises doubt about Ho-gyu’s culpability. If given the benefit of the doubt, maybe he just has awful luck? No way, Chae-man counters. Once bitten, twice shy; had it truly been a tragic accident, Ho-gyu wouldn’t have bought a second vehicle a mere month later, much less rack up four such “accidents.”

While checking out the most recent accident site, So-hee once again bumps into Yeon-ho, who rattles off a spiel of calculations to estimate the car’s velocity. Peering closer at the road, Yeon-ho realizes the location of the yaw marks left by the car’s tires reveal the driver’s intent. The swerve wasn’t to avoid the victim, as would be the case for most accidents — it was to ensure he’d strike her down.


In a lucky coincidence, the used cars dealer that Ho-kyu obtained his vehicles from just so happens to be the same one the team had apprehended. Plying the car dealer into cooperation with delicious food, the team sets a trap for Ho-kyu, outfitting a used car with wiretaps and hidden cameras.

Unfortunately, Ho-kyu catches on to their scheme and sells the car off to a stranger, sending the TCI on a wild goose chase. Elsewhere, an irate Ho-kyu speeds straight towards the used car dealer — only to crash into a bicycle that suddenly cuts into his path. It’s Yeon-ho, who’s now sprawled on the ground with a bruise on his jaw.


All in all, Crash delivers a solidly entertaining premiere with delightfully quirky characters, exhilarating car chases, and little dashes of humor sprinkled between the absurd comedy. (That delivery guy closing the door on his way out, then smoothly opening it again for the TCI team to catch the baddies, LOL!) It’s like Taxi Driver with more legal repercussions and less vigilante vengeance; the signature flair of director Park Joon-woo is evident, and it was fun to spot all the cameos.

The first episode doesn’t particularly make a mark in any one aspect just yet, but it keeps a good pace, introducing us to the ragtag team behind the wheel and laying the groundwork for their future trajectory. Your mileage may vary, but as long as it doesn’t veer too far off the rails with its wacky antics, I think this show has the potential to be a fun joyride.
