The July heatwave is on and I’m looking for the intensity chill of upcoming K-drama Criminal Minds to deliver a refreshing dose of procedural kicks. Starring Lee Jun Ki, Son Hyun Joo, and Moon Chae Won, I love all three and am happy to see the collaboration on a drama that hopefully will mine the US version of the show for interesting and well-crafted crime stories. Sadly it’s not a romance and if there is any side element of attraction it’s not going to whet the appetites of fans of Lee Jun Ki and Moon Chae Won who would like to see the two tap into their deep well of generating chemistry with costars. I’m ambivalent, the lack of a love line keeps the story tight and on track with the genre, but then it feels like wasting the likely strong chemistry leaving me wanting more. Seeing the two in the same frame in new drama stills hammers home the point, I want to see collaboration on cracking cases and maybe a reason for a make out session thrown in.
