Retro Korean Crime Drama “Chief Detective 1958” Lands April 19 on Disney+

This spring, step back in time to a Seoul before K-Pop, smartphones and streaming, and discover the making of a legend when “Chief Detective 1958” lands 19 April 2024 on Disney+.

Set ten years before the widely loved ’70s and ’80s Korean drama “Chief Inspector”“Chief Detective 1958” builds on the original series’ heritage of captivating storytelling and memorable characters to deliver punchy new plotlines featuring Detectives Park Yeonghan and Kim Sangsun.

In “Chief Detective 1958”, we see Park Yeonghan, a pessimistic detective branded as a rebel after repeatedly defying the country’s military government. Stuck with the depressing task of removing homeless people off the streets of the capital, Yeonghan and his team’s passions will suddenly be reawakened as they work to catch a dangerous killer.

A generational bridge that’s funny and dramatic with a splash of romance, “Chief Detective 1958” stars Lee Jehoon (Taxi Driver, Signal) as disillusioned and incorruptible homicide detective Park Yeonghan; and Lee Donghwi (Big Bet, Reply 1988) as the temperamental “mad dog” of the homicide team, Detective Kim Sangsun. The series is directed by Kim Sunghoon (Confidential Assignment, Rampant).

Discover the making of a legend when “Chief Detective 1958” arrives April 19 on Disney+.
