The duo teams up in order to solve cases and chase after serial killers who murdered their family.
Netizens have been reacting to the violence and cruel visual crime scenes of the drama however, they reportedly still being hooked to it. This is evident as the drama ratings are higher for 19 and up demographics.
Despite being aired in the cable channel, the drama’s episode about homeless people and organ selling to China has nabbed the interest of viewers which made the episode garnered 5.1 percent viewership ratings.
In an interview with Jung Duk Hyun, a culture critic, he said that the drama succeeded in getting attention from the viewers but the medium it used is way too brutal.
"The drama has been given high marks in giving chills. But its storytelling has been too loose. For instance, the scenes where the police release an acid terror suspect, naively buying his story, and a stalker overhearing police officers' conversation at the police station doesn't look believable," Jung told Korea Times. "The cruel crime scenes shock viewers with visual and auditory sensations, which make viewers less affected by the loosely connected plot."
With massive responses from fans and viewers, “Voice” Korean drama series will air a special episode on March 18.
