Detective K comes back for second round

The comedic mystery-action film Detective K: Secret of Virtuous Widow (translated more directly as Joseon’s Great Detective) was enough of a success when it released in theaters in 2011 (with 4.7 million ticket admissions) to merit a sequel, which has just been announced. Oh, this should be fun. This time the movie will be called Detective K: Laborer’s Daughter, though it’s possible that’ll change; we’ll have to see what translation the producers put out.

The first movie was stylish and quirky (in a sort of Sherlock Holmes-y way), and this means Kim Myung-min (A New Leaf) will get a second chance to flex his comic muscles as the titular brilliant but bumbling detective. Kim Myung-min playing heo-dang? I’m in. Despite his long resumé chock-full of memorable dramatic roles, he’s quite sharp with comedy when he does make the foray, and I always look forward to him doing more of it.

Han Ji-min was Kim’s co-star in the first movie, but for Round 2 Lee Yeon-hee will be joining the cast in a femme fatale role, while Oh Dal-soo reprises his role as Detective K’s comic-relief sidekick. This sequel purports to have a bigger, upgraded mystery and scope, raising the stakes all around.

Detective K: Laborer’s Daughter plans to begin filming this month, to premiere around the new year.

Yay for more K! I enjoyed round 1 and am happy to hear there'll be a round 2. Oh Dal Soo is a hoot, Lee Yeon Hee's acting is really improving, and His Awesomeness is getting a chance to be funny again... what's not to love?!

Me: "HA...HAHAHAHA!"
My sister:"What are laughing at you freaking tool!?"
Me: "HAHAHAHAHAHA!" #sisterlove :)

OMG KMM looks hilarious! I'm so used to seeing him as Anthony and Soek Ju that this character is so alien to me. Oh man, I want this to be my screen saver for life.

Did anyone see A Million Ways to Die in the West? Cause I am totally singing the mustache song.

Now, if we could only have a Joseon X Files 2, I would die happy.

I recently saw and loved the first detective k movie. I also really loved lee yon hee in miss korea ( I felt like she was born to play that role.) So looking fondly forward to this new movie.

"Miss Korea" was horribly under-appreciated/watched, and LYH gave a better performance than many actresses who had won awards (based more on popularity).

Oh my goodness... I did a double take on Kim Myung Min's picture, because, at first glance, I thought it was Song Seung Hun a.k.a. Mr. Hand Towel hahahaa XD

I watched the movie because of the sequel news. I just finished it 10 minutes ago and I love it but I'm so confused. There were a lot of plot twists so some of the scenes didn't make sense to me anymore. But it was really funny.

It would be nice if Han Ji Min could reprise her role since in the first movie, it was obvious that Detective K has a crush on her. I hope she'll make a cameo then.

I really enjoy the first one and I hope the second one won't be a disappointment. :)

A cameo would be fine! Ah, yeah, it's funny but K really had special attraction towards her. Not necessary love, but she caught his attention in some way. :-) Cameo!
