Mystery Thriller “Search” is a K-Drama Refresh

Airing on OCN, Search is a mystery thriller about an elite specialized search party from the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) who are facing the attacks of an unknown creature. Search opens up with an incident which occurred in 1997, when a search party from North Korea attacks the South Korean army while searching for defectors. Over 20 years later, many South Korean soldiers disappear one by one, and a specialized search party from the South Korean side are tasked to uncover the mystery behind the disappearances.

Jang Dong Yoon stars as Sergeant Yang Dong Jin, a military dog handler who is nearing his discharge date from the army. Krystal Jung stars as First Lieutenant Son Ye Rim, an officer at the KCST Command Center.
