“Watcher” is a 2019 Korean drama directed by Ahn Gil Ho.
A brutal murder committed 15 years ago turned three lives upside down. A decade and a half later, the trio – brought together by fate – goes on the hunt for answers.
Kim Young Goon (Seo Kang Joon), a police officer who may be considered aloof and uncaring, joins an investigation unit headed by hardened long-time cop Do Chi Gwang (Han Suk Kyu). The nightmarish events 15 years ago still haunt Kim Young Goon – but his memories also provide no shortage of motivation.
Do Chi Gwang, meanwhile, has led a quest to uncover widespread corruption as part of his unswerving pursuit of justice – a quest that has won him few friends in the police force.
They are eventually joined by Han Tae Joo (Kim Hyun Joo), a former prosecutor who has become a lawyer.
Will the trio unearth the truth about the fateful event that has shaped their destiny? And what dark secrets will they uncover along their way?
