The Japanese arm of CJ E&M introduced “Signal” as an award-winning series that represents the recent growth of Korean dramas.

Penned by Kim Eun-hee and directed by Kim Won-seok, “Signal” revolves around a walkie-talkie that transports its users to past crime scenes where they can get information that can be used to solve the case in the present time.
