Seoul, Korea (February 10, 2014) – Leading the exploration of new themes for the Korean drama genre, CJ E&M [http://en.cjenm.com], Asia's No.1 Total Contents Company, has launched the new mystery crime drama "Cheo Yong: The Paranormal Detective". Starring Oh Ji-ho and Oh Ji-eun, and Hyosung from popular K-Pop girl group Secret, "Cheo Yong: The Paranormal Detective" portrays the story of a detective with an extraordinary ability to see ghosts.

An original drama produced by CJ E&M, "Cheo Yong: The Paranormal Detective" tells the story of a detective named Yoon Cheo-Yong (played by Oh Ji-ho) who has the unique ability to see, listen, and touch ghosts. He digs into unsolved cases with a female 'high-schooler' ghost Han Na-Young (Hyosung) and a young and passionate colleague Ha Sun-Woo (Oh Ji-eun).
