KBS had a hit in the last Wed-Thurs drama with Chief Kim which ended last week, but it’s less certain that this week’s new arrival Mystery Queen can replicate the success. I’m actually really interested in the offbeat Mystery Queen even with nary a main cast member that’s a fave of mine. I just like the dramatic throwback movie posters released last week, and this week came a modern buddy cop movie inspired one with tough guy Kwon Sang Woo looking determined and exasperated followed by hippie housewife detective Choi Kang Hee pulling a cart of groceries. I don’t even need this drama to have any romance, it’ll be fun enough with character development and plenty of crossed wires hijinks. It helps that the two leads look so chipper and goofy cute at the press conference, there’s definite camaraderie there which bodes well for the onscreen chemistry.
