From its onset to the riveting closure, ‘Voice’ secures an impressive and realistic approach on the battle between good and evil. It enables the audience a thrilling experience while cheering the protagonists in capturing the psycho-villain. ‘Voice’ is a tremendous surprise, and not just because of the established creepy premise, but because it is disturbingly amazing.
“Voice” narrates the story of a special police division team — Golden time. It is an exclusive task force group that solves urgent real-time incidents from phone calls received through the city’s emergency service line. Golden time team was formed in cooperation of the emergency call center and police detectives. Their prime responsibility is to race through the precarious time left for crime victims who are held captive or being chased by their assailants and save them from the imminent danger.
Kang Kwon Joo and Moo Jin Hyuk leads the team. Their history goes back three years ago when Jin Hyuk’s wife was violently murdered by a serial killer and Kwon Joo’s police father who was near the site came to fulfil the police dispatch order, but ended up suffering the same fate. Kwon Joo who has an incredible hearing prowess listened to both the murder scenes that night and vowed to avenge the death of his father. The police presented the culprit, but Kwon Joo who knows the true voice of the culprit denies that the man they caught was a fraud, causing a stir and headache on the police department officials. Kwon Joo is ordered to shut up and even reverting his father’s death to a hit-and-run case. Three years later Kwon Joo and Jin Hyuk’s path cross again and through cases they solve in the Golden time unit, they establish trust between each other as Jin Hyuk learns of Kwon Joo’s hearing ability. She reveals to him the story of what happened the night their families were slayed. She voices her thoughts on how someone in the police organization is covering the tracks of the main villain. As they investigate the recent serial killings, they uncover the clues to finally pin down the psychopath who mercilessly took the lives of their loved ones. When they finally solved the puzzle, they have to deal with money power plays to overcome the insanely rich maniac whose iniquities were overlooked because of his father’s protection.
Think Criminal Minds and CSI but they trap the villains through what the heroine’s ears can picture and Jin Hyuk’s smooth police rescue operations. With Jang Hyuk’s gritty police detective portrayal, I assure that you will be left on the edge of your seat every time and feel elated about the police task they conquered. The villain’s inventive and perturbing display of his abominable crimes is to be applauded because it placed the momentum of the story in equilibrium while the heroes decipher the fitting resolution he deserves. The cold verbal spats he exchanges with the hero are wow moments to watch due to the protagonist’ dauntless attitude.
