I’m getting similar vibes for upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama Suspicious Partner as I did for recently concluding jTBC drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Peppy posters with a cute female lead and a harangued male lead wrapped in pretty colorful poster wrappings. It’s billed as a rom-com but the central plot has a serial killer danger looming, which was an element Do Bong Soon didn’t juggle so well with jarring tonal shifts and a side story with gangsters that never worked and served as a third distraction. I want SP to hew close and tight to the romance of the two leads Ji Chang Wook and Nam Ji Hyun and limit the ancillary plot other than when it directly relates back to the OTP, the previews of their push and pull interaction is exactly what hooks me and I don’t want to diluted at the expense of so-called plot that ends up spinning in circles.
