It’s a staggered May of Wed-Thurs drama premieres, making it hard to predict the outcome since none of the first episodes are going up head-to-head in airing date. MBC is the first out of the gate today with Warm and Cozy, next week is Masked Prosecutor (The Man in the Mask) over on KBS, and SBS rounds out the rear with the premiere of Mask in two weeks. I found myself genuinely surprised to see Masked Prosecutor right around the corner premiering on May 20th, for whatever reason I thought Unkind Women still had a few weeks to go.
I’m anxious and excited about Masked Prosecutor, stoked with the pairing of leads Joo Sang Wook and Kim Sun Ah, not to mention the bonus add of Eom Ki Joon as the second male lead, but really wary of Joo Sang Wook’s prosecutor donning a wresting face mask as his disguise. It’s so loud and unintentionally hilarious to the point of being distracting, which might be what the drama is going for if his masked vigilante is comic fodder. In that case, bring it on since I have plenty of laughs at the ready. Check out the just released second teaser and enjoy the first peek at the great onscreen chemistry to come.
