I let out a small yelp of excitement and shock when this casting news first flickered across my screen, and had to rub my eyes to make sure it wasn’t my imagination. K-actress Moon Chae Won has been offered the leading lady role in the K-drama remake of US show Criminal Minds, which if she accepts will mean acting opposite confirmed male lead Lee Jun Ki. Hallelujah drama gods, please let her accept and making this casting perfection come true! Looks like Kim Ah Joong is not taking the role since she was initially considering the project but I’m totally fine with Moon Chae Won donning the mantle especially when she gets to pair up with Lee Jun Ki. Too bad this isn’t a romance drama but a well-written tense criminal procedure will still get extra chemistry and pizzazz with these two in the line up.
Also in talks to join the Criminal Minds profiling drama family is veteran actor Son Hyun Joo and newbie actress Lee Sun Bin. It will be Son Hyun Joo’s first drama since 3 Days in 2014 though he had a guest starring role in Signal last year, while Lee Sun Bin is currently starring in the MBC drama Missing 9.
