Crash plot and character details

The plot of the show will follow car crimes like insurance fraud, reckless driving, the inability to follow basic traffic rules, and more. However, it will also showcase more intense and serious crimes, such as attempted violence and murder, that happen on the road. Crash is the first K-drama that will focus on traffic crimes and road rash incidents that have deeper conspiracies than they seem on the exterior.

Lee Min Ki takes on the role of Cha Yeon Ho, the new director of TCI, who is extremely intelligent. Being a KAIST graduate, Cha Yeon Ho is an expert at investigating traffic crimes, and he uses his mathematician skills to accurately stimulate past incidents and recreate any situation to find out how an accident occurred.

Cha Yeon Ho is supported by Min So Hee, played by Kwak Sun Young, who is an ace detective and can figure out the deep intricacies of a possible crime. Heo Sung Tae, as Jung Chae Man, has an important role to play as he serves as the team leader, focuses on the loopholes within the department, and works towards improving them. 

The series is scheduled for a total of 12 episodes and will premiere on May 6, 2024. Moreover, the show will be released in the Monday and Tuesday slots on the ENA Network. Each episode is expected to have an approximate runtime of 60 minutes.
