An official of the drama production team said that some of the episodes of the drama will depict on cases based on real-life crimes that made headlines last year.
“The drama is full of brave, passionate characters who have a strong sense of duty and are ready to take down any case,” Song was quoted as saying in the statement.
Separately, actor Kim Seung-woo will play the boss of Song’s character to tell of the rivalry between the two men in their department.
Song, 39, rose to stardom with KBS drama “Sea God” in 2004 after debuting as 27th class of MBC's actors in 1998.
