It’s drama premiere week for MBC, languishing in last place and besieged by a labor strike to out a corrupt network president. On Monday new soul-swap police drama Two Cops arrives, followed on Wed-Thurs by rom-com I am Not a Robot. I’m more excited for the latter due to the subject matter and cast but am hopeful the former is solid fare for the sake of talented male lead Jo Jung Seok. He’s going to play double duty to carry the drama, playing a no nonsense police detective and also the same detective with the soul of a swindler’s personality inside. The swindler is played by smirky Kim Sun Ho, with female lead Hyeri as a dogged reporter and hopefully not the type to stupidly rush into crime scenes and dangerous investigations though that appears to be the way K-dramas write every single female reporter. The drama is by the PD of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and A New Leaf with the script by a newbie screenwriter that won the 2016 KBS crime drama writing competition and was later picked up by MBC.
