“Fugitive” is no longer a Korean drama serial. It is an international drama series.
In South Korea, you are not allowed to work on a secret investigation or be a private detective.
This is why Jiwoo’s official job title is called “P.I.A (Private Investigation Administrator)”.
Many years ago, Jiwoo handled the case of Asian couple who died at a casino in Las Vegas.
As a result, Jiwoo received astronomical amount of money as the reward and also became one of the top detectives.
Jiwoo didn’t know this incident would rebound upon him at that time.
He loses his best friend Gyudong and meets a lady named Jini.
Jini requests Jiwoo to find a person calls Melchidec.
Jini believes that Melchidec is the one who killed her foster parents and she will also get killed by him.
She thinks Jiwoo drew the conclusion that her adoptive parents committed suicide, even though he knows all these facts.
As Jiwoo and Jini come closer to getting the full story of the case, they notice that they fall in love for each other. The plot continues.
The star studded upcoming Korean drama series “Fugitive” will be more crowded as a Japanese pop idol , Uehara Takako join the cast.
She will play as Kieko, a top Japanese singer who falls in love with Ji-hoo (play by Rain).
Keiko father , Hiroki, will be played by Japanese famous actor Takenaka Naoto.
Uehara Takako, 27 years old, was former member of hot Okinawan female idol group Speed, selling million singles and album.
She has acting experience too, played alongside Ryu Shi Won in television drama “Koino Karasawagi – Drama Special” (Nihon TV, 2005).
Hopefully, “Fugitive” with so many heavyweight star (Rain, Daniel Henney, Lee Na Young, Lee Jung Jin), capable of displaying an interesting drama. Because it would be very disappointing if “Fugitive” with a lot of superstar , failed to deliver a good drama.

Interview with Rain on the New Drama “The Fugitive: Plan B”
Singer and actor Rain (real name Jung Ji Hoon), who made a comeback to the small screen after a five-year break by appearing in “The Fugitive: Plan B,” said at the production presentation, “I took the role of an extraordinary character who cannot be found on TV Channels or in the movies. I wanted to create a totally new character in this drama.” The action drama filmed in many cities of Asian countries, will tell the story of an astronomically valued gold bar which had disappeared during the Korean War. It is also noteworthy as the production director Kwak Jung Hwan and writer Chun Sung Il, who had participated in producing the drama “The Slave Hunters,” have formed a production team again.
Jung Ji Hoon plays a private investigator named Ji Woo who cares greatly about money and women. Ji Woo has a shameless and positive personality, but he will be challenged by becoming involved in an unfinished case. As he had received a request to take on the case from a mysterious woman named Jin Yi (Lee Na Young), he ended up engaging in a large-scale conspiracy involving the said gold bar. Rain added, “The writer told me that he wanted to make a character who is very serious but focused person when it comes to issues of women and money, and I totally agreed with his idea.” Ji Woo will continuously be chased by a policeman named Do Soo (Lee Jung Jin), so the chase scenes take up a large portion of the drama. He also said, “I feel really good about this drama. I actually had a very auspicious dream, but I did not buy any lottery tickets so I could apply all that luck toward the dramas success instead. If the viewer ratings for this drama reach more than 40 percent, I will disclose what it was about.”
