Lee Je Hoon already seems well-settled in his role as the younger Park Young Han, a detective rough around the edges who’s just moved to Seoul from the humble origins of the countryside.

He was also snapped alongside Lee at the script reading for the prequel, and is also set to make a special appearance in the new series.

The table read also caught Je Hoon all suited up and in character. His charismatic vibe has again got the fans swooning, who can’t wait to watch him in action again. Lee Je Hoon was last seen in the two seasons of Taxi Driver and Move to Heaven.
