I don’t want Lee Jun Ki to hog all the credit for the goodness that is Two Weeks. Yes, he gets the majority of the screen time and carries the burden of all the narrative intensity on his shoulders, but he’s lucky to be surrounded by more than capable and equally talented co-stars. I actually really like Kim So Yeon and Ryu Soo Young’s dogged law enforcement characters, and it’s a shame Seung Woo is already paired up with Park Ha Sun’s In Hye because I could totally see a love line developing between Seung Woo and Jae Kyung considering how much time they are going to spend together tracking down Tae San. Plus Park Ha Sun is the only underwhelming member of the cast and I’m not feeling much from her though she is serviceable enough. I also think this drama benefits from truly scary and well-acted villains, primarily Kim Hye Ok’s Jo Seo Hee and then Jo Min Ki’s Moon Il Suk. I love Kim Hye Ok and she’s an even better actress than I give her credit for since she’s usually playing the best mom on the planet, I especially adored her to pieces in Flowers for My Life. MBC is doing a nice job with the previews, the video previews don’t give too much away, and the written previews whet the appetite but leave much unsaid. I don’t think it’s a spoiler when we know Tae San keeps escaping the grasp of law enforcement at this stage in the drama, though I am enjoying how its just a little but of ingenuity but mostly luck and sincerity that gets him out of binds. This drama has made me love loser Tae San and really committed to see him not fail his daughter Soo Jin, as well as loathe the dastardly villainy of the bad guys and can’t wait to see them taken down.
