Through The Darkness Cast: Meet The Intelligent Crime Solvers!

Through The Darkness cast

Through the Darkness has a very enthralling storyline and super-duper talented cast! Through the darkness is actually adopted from the autobiography of the same name which was co-written by Korea’s first criminal profiler Kwon Il Young and journalist-turned-author- Ko Na Mu showing Kwon’s experiences in the field. The backdrop of the K-drama is set in the 1990s when Seoul was gripped with the fear of the brutal serial killing taking place at that time. The mysterious serial killer called Red Cap used to stalk women on the streets randomly and kill them. His random way of choosing his prey made it even harder for the police to catch him.

This is when the head of the Criminal Behavioral Analysis team Gook Young Soo steps in and decides to recruit Song Ha Young (a former detective of his team) to work as a profiler for them. Gook Young Soo believed that it would be easier for them to catch Red Cap through Song Ha Young. Meanwhile, Yoon Tae Goo who is a homicide expert along with her officers is not very happy about them exploring a new way in these times. Since the happenings in the K-drama are based on real events, things are more realistic and do not seem made up. It is also interesting to watch whether Song Ha Young will be able to catch Red Cap or not.

The acting of the Through the Darkness cast had been absolutely spectacular and complimented the realisticness of the K-drama. Keep reading to find out more about the Through the Darkness cast!
