After almost a year’s hiatus from dramaland, Jo Jung-suk has confirmed a return in the supernatural mystery romance Two Cops. It’s centered around an upstanding detective who is committed to fighting for justice until one day the soul of a con artist trespasses into his body and decides to stay.
According to the latest reports, he’ll be playing the man with one body housing two souls with very different personalities. He’s originally a detective in the violent crimes unit at the Yeongdeungpo District. A dedicated cop through and through, he won’t even take off his worn-out sneakers at a funeral ceremony, just so that he could chase a criminal down at a moment’s notice.
So when the spirit of a lazy swindler ends up residing inside him, there’s bound to be mischief, especially because there’s romance involved. Hyeri is up to play his love interest, a reporter who got to where she is now through sheer determination and with no connections to help her. She’s the type to go into a rage if she witnesses an injustice, but is also quick to shamelessly back down when she knows the situation is not in her favor. Also up to join the cast is Choi Woo-shik in an unspecified role.
Two Cops is based on rookie writer Byun Sang-soon’s winning script in last year’s KBS criminal miniseries scriptwriting competition. The drama is slated to follow 20th Century Boy and Girl in MBC’s Monday-Tuesday slot, which would put its premiere in November.Sources: Dramabeans
/IS PlusI love Jo Jung Suk and I'm excited for him to get a new drama, especially since I absolutely loathed Jealousy Incarnate and hate watched for 7 episodes before dropping it. I'm sick of them casting Hyeri against actors way older than her (14 years in this case). I adore Choi Woo Shik, so fingers crossed he accepts.
