K-drama Criminal Minds Releases Poster and Holds Press Conference with Lee Jun Ki, Moon Chae Won, and Son Hyun Joo

I’m so used to K-dramas rushing schedules that the press conference to premiere gap has shrunk almost to a day before even so it’s a nice relief to take it slow and see the cast of Criminal Minds meeting the media a full week before their drama airs on July 26th. Starring Lee Jun Ki, Son Hyun Joo, Moon Chae Won, Lee Sun Bin, Yoo Sun, and Go Yoon, the truly ensemble cast takes a crack at remaking a popular US procedural transplanted to Korea and with added K-drama touches. The drama poster is dull as heck but who cares since this is one drama that needn’t strive to be unique and visually different, it just has to do what the original did well. I love seeing Lee Jun Ki back to being all badassery in modern form with a gun instead of a sword and face mask, whereas Moon Chae Won pulls off the haughty woman vibe but is less convincing with a gun. Luckily the cast has awesome veteran Son Hyun Joo who makes everything better, so get ready for procedural excitement come next Wednesday. Continue reading
