It’s probably good that Lee Jun Ki picked the K-drama remake of Criminal Minds as his next drama after the high profile flop that was Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. It’s a modern day procedural and world’s away from sageuk where he’s done so many outings in period garb, not to mention all the shipping with his previous leading lady won’t happen here since Lee Jun Ki has confirmed that he’s dating Jeon Hye Bin and a procedural will dispense with the collateral romance filler. I’m also glad Moon Chae Won gets to make a drama without any leading man off screen drama or distraction in any way, let CM reach the audiences as a summer popcorn thriller on the small screen. The first preview is here and looks fantastic, hitting all the right intensity beats with the whole casting pulling off their detective characters with believable glower. The drama premieres on July 26th on tvN.
