Studio Dragon is a leading Korean drama studio that boasts high planning and producing capabilities for dramas as well as an efficient system. It is planning on preparing and launching 28 new dramas in 2019 and is expanding its scale each year.

Broadcast for the first time in Korea in 2017, Voice is a thriller that depicts the intense lives of members of the emergency call centre, who solve violent crimes within the ‘golden time’ or the ‘golden hour’. The members solve crimes and track down criminals, using the sounds they hear over the phone as their only clues. The story conveys a social message and was highly praised by the Korean viewers. It recently boasted the highest viewer rating among programmes that aired at the same time on Korean cable TV channels and ended its third season successfully.

The Japanese remake, Voice: Emergency Control Room 110, has just been broadcast in mid-July and recorded a viewer rating of 12.6% for its first episode. CJ ENM notes that this is a considerably high rating compared to the previous dramas launched in January (8.3%) and April (10.9%). Thailand’s national channel, True4U has also confirmed that it will remake this drama, and it is scheduled to be launched in November. Actors Andrew Gregson and Khemanit Jamikorn have been cast for the lead roles.

The broadcasting and VOD rights of the three seasons of the programme have been sold in 56 countries around Asia, Europe, and North America, including Canada, France, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and Brazil.

“All works by Studio Dragon can be enjoyed by viewers all around the world through global platforms including TV, VOD services, and Netflix,” said Studio Dragon CEO Jinnie Choi. “Various line-ups will be available in the second half of this year, such as Arthdal Chronicles, The Great Show, Catch The Ghost, The Running Investigator, and Melting Me Softly.”
