Whenever I see the title for upcoming MBC Mon-Tues drama Two Cops I think it’s either a buddy movie or both leads are cops and they are going to partner to solve crime and then fall in love. The premise is actually Jo Jung Seok as both cops, he plays a detective who gets his body possessed by the soul of a conman and together they double the brain power to solve crime. Kim Sun Ho in the supporting role plays the conman in question and of course has the exact different temperament than the hard-nosed detective.
Leading lady Hyeri isn’t a cop but instead plays a reporter, but is the love interest of likely both the detective and conman. I don’t like Hyeri as an actress but this drama does interest me so I’ll check it out with the sliver of hope that the good production will fill the gaps in any acting weakness. The drama is penned by a newbie screenwriter who won a MBC open call script competition last year and directed by the PD of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
