Through the Darkness is a criminal psychological investigation about the story of the first profiler in Korea who had to fiercely look into the minds of serial killers at the peak of evil at a time when unmotivated murders were rapidly increasing.
Kim Nam-gil takes on the role of Song Ha-young, a detective who becomes the first profiler in Korea. Song Ha-young seems to have no emotions, but he is a person who looks more deeply into humans than anyone else.
Kook Young-soo, played by Jin Seon-gyu, realizes the need for criminal psychological analysis and creates a criminal behavior analysis team after a long strategy.
Yoon Tae-goo, played by Kim So-jin, is the team leader of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Mobile Investigation Team, who has an animal sense to recognize incidents.
Professor Kwon Il-yong, Korea’s first profiler. The first profiler in Korea in the drama ‘Through the Darkness’ resembles and differs from the real Professor Kwon Il-yong. However, they had to look into the heart of evil and tried to destroy the evil of crime. Through the drama, I was able to feel and think about the fierceness and mission that Professor Kwon Il-yong felt. That is why we must watch ‘Through the Darkness’.
We asked Professor Kwon Il-yong why he should watch the drama ‘Through the Darkness’ among various crime psychological investigation dramas. Professor Kwon Il-yong said, “When we think of certain things, we associate them and make decisions based on what we actually saw. This psychological phenomenon is called a heuristic. Readers of the book ‘Those who read the minds of evil’ have never seen a real crime scene. And I can only imagine how profilers fight psychologically with criminals.”
“But the drama is different. Because it is shown on the screen. This allows viewers to be much more immersed in it. Through this, we hope that we will be able to understand why all members of our society must work together to fight the evil of crime.”
