Good lord, can I get this right now or do I really have to wait another month? The upcoming tvN cops-and-spirits melodrama Who Are You released the first official stills of the three leads So Yi Hyun, Taecyeon, and Kim Jae Wook. I promptly fell in love. All three of them look so gorgeous its unreal, though only one plays a genuine unreal person. Kim Jae Wook is the dead guy, but apparently that doesn’t stop this drama from touting its love triangle angle from the get go. I dunno, even 49 Days couldn’t make Yi Soo/Scheduler come back to life, I’m highly doubtful second lead shippers here will get any satisfaction. I’m much more intrigued by the overall set up which is rife with potential. First off, all three leads are/were cops, how cool is that! So Yi Hyun plays Si On, the youngest police officer to make team leader in the special investigations unit, a confident and capable woman. Due to an accident she’s been in a coma for 6 years and awakens to discover that she can see dead people. Taecyeon plays Gun Woo, a natural born cop that only believes in things he can see and he reluctantly becomes Si On’s partner. Through the unclaimed items of the deceased spirits lingering around, Si On listens to their stories and helps them finish their last wish to comfort them. Gun Woo falls for Si On seeing her help those who have unfinished business. Kim Jae Wook plays Hyun Joon, a top-notch police officer and Si On’s ex-boyfriend who died in an accident 6 years ago. His spirit lingers and keeps watch over Si On as he loves her still. A strange and unbelievable love triangle forms. Yes, Taecyeon will probably be out-acted by Kim Jae Wook to the distance between Earth and Pluto, since Kim Jae Wook is known to steal dramas as the second (and even third lead), but I think all the characters sounds interesting and appealing (nary an arrogant chaebol or Candy heroine in sight) that the story will probably be the highlight of this drama. I can’t wait!
Can I just say that Kim Jae Wook looks yuuuuummmmmy in all-white. And Taec is no push over either, he’s looking mighty cop-like with the gun and holster and the earnest attitude. I also love everyone’s hairstyles for this drama. Leave it to tvN to stop uglifying characters for no good reason.
