Kim Joon cast as a cop in new drama

T-Max rapper and newbie actor Kim Joon (whom you may recall as the “Yo-yo-yo!” bro from Boys Before Flowers) is joining the cast of Serious Crime Squad, the cop drama starring Kim Seung-woo and Song Il-kook. With such big names at the top, I’m betting the still-very-unpolished Kim Joon will have a smallish supporting role, but I do love his character description: a cowardly cop. Ha! Bring it on.

Serious Crime Squad is a procedural police drama that is adopting the ripped-from-the-headlines tactic that has served Law & Order so well for years upon years. Each of the detectives has a distinct personality and the episodes will showcase various investigative techniques. The show is being promoted as “refreshing and satisfying, with a realistic feel.”

Kim Joon’s character is Shin Dong-jin, specializing in cyber-crime investigation. He excels in his field but has an innately timid and fearful personality; the sight of a corpse tends to make him faint, which is, unsurprisingly enough, frowned upon by his colleagues. As such, he’s described as a unique character who’s rather unpredictable.

I do think Kim Joon has a long way to go in terms of acting skill — he really benefited in Boys Before Flowers by being allowed to act as eye candy without having much to do dramatically — but I can’t deny he’s got personal charm. I can see him playing a comic, quirky character much better than one that’s dependent upon a solid dramatic performance, so I hope this role suits him.

Sunwoo Sun has also been cast, and for a relative latecomer to the acting scene, she’s proven to be pretty strong with roles as a spoiled chaebol in Queen of Housewives and a spoiled chaebol in Will It Snow For Christmas. Okay, that makes her sound limited in range, but her two characters were pretty disparate in personality, and I think she’d make a kickass cop. Joining her as the other female lead amongst a mostly-male cast is Park Sun-young, who played the feisty (and rabbit-toothed, lol) lawyer in Sons of Sol Pharmacy.

Serious Crime Squad will follow Dream High on Mondays and Tuesdays, and premieres on February 28.

Cejitas! I love this guy's eyebrows. I agree, he has charm and the character sounds fun, so despite his lack of acting skills, he could do a good job.

Omo, I thought I was the only one! I was worried when he went blonde but in the end it only made them stand out more. rawr.

Hispanic? I don't know that many hispanics that love Kdrama and the such so it's awesome to read your "cejitas!" comment lol.

Sooo excited for him. He needs more opportunities to spread his wings and season himself. Cuz I think he could grow to be a pretty decent actor.

Yesyesyesyesyes!! Oh man, I love this boy (and his eyebrows).

It's a shame I have zero interest in this show. :/ Maybe if it turns out to be more like NCIS than Law & Order. Oh well, we'll see.

Prince Song!!! I actually thought his character was the most "sane" out of BBF coz the rest just seems high strung after a while...

Sigh... what a dreamy looking boy... with the right projects, I can see traits of a young Gong Yoo or Cha Tae Hyun in him... a little comic but very charismatic...

Hwaiting Joon ah...

I'm loving the casting, minus Song Il Gook. Its funny how similar genres/story lines always come in pairs as with President and Daemul, Revenge of the Gumiho and My girlfriend is a gumiho, and now this and Poseidon.

waah, been waiting for his acting comeback like, forever. i'm glad somebody gives him chance. though, so far, the only role i've ever seen him is just that 'minor flower' in bof, i can see that he has potential.
or maybe i was just blinded by his charm.
anyway, can't wait for his performance on this.

gogogo, my sweetie~!

He's back, although his role was somewhat small in BOF he showed potential. I look on this drama as school for him as he will be acting with some experienced/veteran actors/actresses therefore allowing him a chance to improve his skills. Hope the drama is enjoyable.

I'm optimistic.

I think that he did a really good job of acting with
the comparitively small part that he had in BOF.
Anybody notice though, how charming he was
when they had to broadcast that last-minute,
fill-in, emergency F4 special talk show?

I think that this boy is.....WAY TALENTED.
And I loved his ridiculous Engrish. He made
"Yo, yo, mah bro" memorable and very funny.

Playing the part now, of a weenie cop?
It should be fun! GOOD LUCK, JOON! :)
