It's a good news for fans awaiting the premiere of 'Missing 9.' A special episode will be screened ahead of its scheduled premiere on January 12 at 10 pm KST.

"The drama will be releasing a special episode titled 'Missing 9: The Beginning' ahead of its premiere on January 12 at 10 p.m. KST," Soompi reported. The first episode will be aired on January 18 at 10 pm KST.

The special episode will introduce the characters, production set, and behind-the-scenes stories shot during the filming. The series is a mystery drama that narrates the story of a plane crash in a deserted island.

According to the plot released, the story revolves around nine people from Legend Entertainment, who boards a private plane to attend a concert. It will have Seo Joon-O (Jung Kyoung-Ho), Choi Tae-Ho (Choi Tae-Joon), Ha Ji-A (Lee Sun-Bin), Lee Yeol (Chanyeol), Yoon So-Hee (Ryu Won) and staff members Ra Bong-Hee (Baek Jin-Hee), Jung Ki-Joon (Oh Jung-Se), Hwang Jae-Kook (Kim Sang-Ho), Tae Ho-Hang (Tae Hang-Ho). After a point, the plane goes missing and crashes on a deserted island. After four months, Ra Bong-Hee returns as the sole survivor of the crash and the story of the survival is narrated from her perspective.

"The drama is told from the perspective of Ra Bong Hee (Baek Jin Hee) as she reflects on the events of what happened on the island, four months after the crash. She is the lone survivor of the nine who were stranded," OfficiallyKMusic reported. Recently, MBC released an array of pictures which shows the stranded survivors struggling to survive by building a house, generating fire and searching for food.

"There is an interesting relationship dynamic between the lead characters, Ra Bong Hee and Seo Joon Oh (Jung Kyung Ho). While Seo Joon Oh is a star barely holding onto the spotlight, he has no survival skills and will struggle greatly on the island. On the other hand, Ra Bong Hee, who is his new stylist, has all the necessary skills to survive that she obtained by working numerous jobs," the report further added.
