A walkie-talkie in the present somehow picks up signals from a detective in the past, Lee Jae Han (Jo Jin Woong). Police profiler Park Hae Young (Lee Je Hoon) finds this walkie-talkie and uses it to help solve cold cases. Detective Cha Soo Hyun (Kim Hye Soo), who was once a rookie at Lee Jae Han’s station, leads the cold-case team.

    Great great drama. Strange ending unless they plan to have Season 2.
    I sure hope there is another season for this drama because it was great.
    Congratulations to the entire cast for great acting.
    The script writer is a genius except the ending left us in the air about what happens to Lee Jae Han. Looking forward to next season which will tie some of the loose ends.

    SBS is at a loss after missing out on the chance to air big money-makers.

    The broadcasting company’s regret only grows with the exponential increase of the popularity of cable channel tvN‘s drama “Signal” and KBS2‘s “Descendants of the Sun.” The reason is that the two dramas, coming from a cable channel and a public channel, respectively, are becoming almost virally popular despite the fact that, ironically, they were originally being discussed at SBS with confirmed dates for airing, only to be canceled due to production issues. How did these two big hits slip through SBS’s fingers?

    Though not sure when season 2 will be released this drama was great. I think this has topped the k-drama list for many fans. I never looked at ratings before but after the drama ended I had to find the ratings for this drama,………and guess what FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER I WAS PLEASED!!!
    This drama was a success and hopefully people will receive it as such. Great Crew, Great story, Great cast, Great OST…….just total GREATNESS if you ask me.

    11:23 FIGHTING!!!!

    Richard Johnson Says:

    Agreed, this is a top-notch drama in every way. However, also agree with Annmasae @51, that the ending, while good and fitting, was not as satisfying as it could have been. Personally, I’d prefer 20 episodes upfront vs 2 seasons, 16 each. Stories with strong endings can have more impact. Obviously, from a production standpoint, multiple seasons are an easier way to generate revenue, which is why much of TV runs contrary to the k-drama model.

    Fullheart5 Says:

    Oops, sorry that they have a cliffhanger ending. Unlike here in the USA, I like Korean Dramas because they do end, conclude, finish. Agree with post 64, extend a few episodes and forget the second season. But, of course, no one asked me. LOL

I salute Kim Eun Hee, as she wrote such a great story! I hope season 2 would be as good as Season 1. Even though the ending is hanging, but I still find the drama is nicely wrapped up

    one of my favorite drama this 2016 Signal.
    the best story that i’ve ever seen so far.
    good job guys to all cast,director,writer etc.

    ica Says:

    i think is great story,great drama, unique.unlike other story in korean drama. i prefer drama like this better than long drama that 50-120 episode ,but inside very bad drama.wasting time watching drama like that. in for several years, korean drama in long episode i think quality has been low, bad story, not worth to watch
    this is unique drama, the new genre as descendants of the sun, i.hope for the.next project we as love korean drama can see the new genre.
    signal worth to watch as i really like korean drama since hotelier, endless love,all about eve.

  31. 81
    Sandra Says:

    Based on the sypnosis, the story is somewhat similar to the Hong Kong drama “To Get Unstuck In Time” (2004) and American “Frequency” (2000), so is not really that unique. These dramas/movie have similar plots, the present detective communicating with a person in the past to solve mysteries.

    The drama however might not be unique in my sense as it is not entirely a fresh storyline, but i do believe it’s a good drama in view of the many positive feedbacks from viewers. Most korean dramas i’ve watched were quite interesting. But the ending parts of most korean dramas are irritably “hanging” and confusing. I guess this happens often due to the fact that most korean dramas are pratically “live-shot” which led to rushed endings. This sometimes spoilt the supposed to be beautiful perfect dramas and as such i rather rewrite and dream my own ending of the drama haha!

    best and excellent drama. signal is much better than to DOTS. congratulations for best drama SIGNAL.

    All of the actor’s acting were superb, this drama has thrilling and touching moments, good story plot that does not even need a cheesy loveline to keep the viewers hook to the show. Drama that make you want to watch on and on!

    BEST suspense/thriller drama ever with superb and outstanding actors and actresses, and with areally really great plot also backsound. I’m Glad Lee Jehoon finaly got a really good Drama, with ball the sunbaenim that we dont have to ask about their act. I hope more for kdrama like this again in the future. And i hope i can see more Lee Jehoon drama/box office movies

    One of the best drama i’ve ever seen in my life. The plot is great, and the actors are incredible!

    i think The best mystery drama was jist Ghost/Phantom and then i met Signal and this is such a very good production

    eventhough i still curious about the ending, i really want to see Lee Jae Han meet Park Hae Young on the year 2015 🙂
