The field agent, called Han Ji Hyuk, was deemed the best agent because of how cool-headed and independent he was, rarely relying on anyone to get the job done.
Han Jin Hyuk was driving an organized crime syndicate into a corner when he disappeared for a year. When he reemerged, he became on the mission to shake up the syndicate again, even more riled up than he was before he vanished.
When he saw a traitor in the company, he became determined to get to the bottom of what happened to him.
Park Ha Sun will take on the role of Seo Soo Yeon, the head of team 4 of the Crime Information Center. Despite being a woman, Seo Soo Yeon is someone excellent at performing her duties and solving cases. At the same time, she is genuinely compassionate to people, mostly her teammates.
"Black Sun" will run with 12 episodes.

What's clear is that Namgoong Min will have to maintain a mean physique for this role. This might not be too hard if one can recall how he once said he exercises almost daily.
Through his previous interview, it can be surmised that the reason for this is because of a medical condition, and skipping days of exercise can be difficult.
" I seem okay on the outside, but I have a herniated disc. If I don't exercise, it hurts so much that I can't bear it," he confessed.
He also revealed at the time that his house is equipped with all types of gym stuff, enabling him to do deadlifts before he sleeps, no matter how late he comes home.
He explained that when there's no filming, he can exercise once every two days. But if there's filming and he is busy, he makes sure to put in 10 to 15 minutes of lifting and moving before erasing his makeup.
