No that's not a typo, "Age of Heroes" is a MBC modern historical drama about the economic development of South Korea after the Korean War and two major characters that had a hand in it. Like I said in the "Other Shows" thread, it's not subtitled for us or L.A. Kim Kap-soo's role is that of Chun Sa-kuk, the fourth son of the main character Chun Tae-il. Here's what I saw in the first episode:
SLIGHT SPOILER ALERT (I'm watching it unsubbed, so I can't give too much away) . . . . . . . . . The beginning of the show starts in the modern day, and KKS is being driven to his office in a pouring rainstorm in the middle of the night. During the drive he calls his wife and another man on his cell phone but does not speak to them, he only waits for a few moments as they say "Hello? Hello?" and then hangs up. At his office he writes separate letters which turn out to be suicide notes. He throws himself out the window and his body is found the next day. The rest of the episode seems to be a flashback on why he committed suicide, it looks like he was a head of a corporation under investigation by the government (they show what looks like an investigative hearing). He seems to be a person not fit to be a leader (what a change from CCH). Anyway the funny thing was the episode ended just like AOW, freezing on CCH/Kim Kap-soo's face.
