Pairing up two exceedingly handsome actors in different generational brackets appeals to two different audience demographics, and throw in the story being a remake of a popular US show and what could go wrong. Well, the K-remake of Criminal Minds answers that question with an everything went wrong answer but the upcoming Suits remake has a chance to learn from the mistakes of CM and do theirs right.
The US show is about a whip smart college dropout who ends up an associate at a law firm practicing law fraudulently but winning cases and the trust of the firm’s managing partner. Park Hyung Sik is playing the young fake lawyer role with Jang Dong Gun as the senior partner and mentor. K-audiences loooooove legal shows these days, more so than ever, so if Suits is even decently adapted it ought to succeed especially with two popular male leads at the helm. The drama has been picked up by KBS and is tentatively slated for an April 2018 premiere.
