The ajumma cop reports for duty in Mrs. Cop

Time to check in with SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday police investigation drama Mrs. Cop which already premieres next week. Kim Hee-ae (Secret Love Affair) takes on her first action role as a detective team leader who’s an ace in the field but a failure as a mother. And Kim Min-jong (Secret Door) plays her leading man (Park Yong-woo was originally cast in the role, but I like Kim Min-jong way more, so yay for that), her longtime friend and colleague who’s now the section chief of the violent crimes division.

She’s a charismatic team leader and a first-rate detective who always catches the bad guy and remains loyal to her people, no matter how little affection she shows on the outside. Her one great failing is her inability to be a good mother to her young daughter, who’s pretty much raised by her aunt (Shin So-yool). Mom can remember every detail of a case but knows nothing of her daughter’s daily life, and can’t even manage to be there for her birthday once a year.

Kim Min-jong’s character has built a trusting friendship with the heroine after being teammates for over a decade. He’s a realist who’s savvy about getting ahead by focusing on results, and he gets promoted ahead of Kim Hee-ae and ends up her boss. In the teasers, he says to her: “Even if you go around singing that it sucks to be a cop and you can’t do it, you can’t help what you’re born with. You are a killer ajumma cop.”

Sohn Ho-joon (Trot Lovers) plays a special-forces-trained detective in her unit, who can’t seem to get along with his rule-following buttoned-up teammate Lee Da-hee (Big Man). He’s the kind of guy who would die trying to carry his partner off the battlefield, and finds her lack of respect for sunbaes confusing.

Lee Ki-kwang (Twenty) plays the team’s maknae who doesn’t act like a maknae. He’s not very industrious and doesn’t jump to get things done for his sunbaes just to be liked, and can’t really be bothered to suck up for brownie points. He’s a mama’s boy who grew up pretty entitled, and thinks of his personal time as precious.

I’m still not sure what to expect from this drama because the teasers are really varied in tone — the first and third are quite dark and dramatic, introducing a world full of corruption and Kim Hee-ae as a tough cop known for being a brilliant detective. She says, “I just want to know the truth. Because I’m a cop.”

But the second teaser is suddenly very upbeat and light, and describes her personality as rude and impudent. She tosses her hair and argues, “But I’m good at catching criminals!” The captions read: “One hundred points as a cop, zero points as a mom.” Aw, but she’ll turn that around, right? The setup doesn’t excite me all that much, but I like the ensemble cast, so I hope there’s a meaty story there to tell.

Mrs Cop follows High Society and premieres next Monday, August 3.

Omg Omg I love the vibes!! Just getting off on the plot alone and then of course the lead actress Kim Hee-ae is stellar... I predict a winner here. No question. Will be watching this.

Aren't you strangely drawn to the last teaser, even if she's just walking....? @[email protected]

It looks more serious than I expected but I love how KHA is in the trailer. Usually when they say the heroine is a badass cop, there's still an obvious layer of aegyo. But here KHA looks like the workaholic she is.

And it's probably too much to expect working moms to be perfect in all aspects of their life, but I also hope she learns to be closer to her child. :') Once that kid hits her teenage years, ajumma will be the one chasing her daughter for affection!

I'm living for all the badass ajumma/noona cops lately. Masked Prosecuter was kind of a fail, but Jang Nara in I remember You is just great, and I have every hope for KHA, who always brings that iron fist velvet glove realness.

Love Kim Hee Ae, even more so after Secret Love Affair last year. Wonder if we'll see the SLA shiny face again from her in this show teehee.

if Kim Hee-ae is the lead, there's no need to worry about the acting part of this....

and even the idol in this cast is pretty decent at it, going by the few acting roles he's had.

can't wait for this drama. I had to quit High Society out of boredom... sometimes romance dramas fail me and leave me quite disappointed,,, Crime/police dramas in Kdramaland seem to fair better for me. Lee Gikwang must be quite busy this summer with Beast's new album just released on top of this drama.Fighting!!

Oh no, High Society is not all romance dramas lol. Even people who enjoy romance dramas have to agree that it's pretty terrible ^^;;

Thanks God that there are women over 35 who can kick ass in the screen. Even if I'm way younger than them, it seem that the mayor thing for a women in a show is for her to be young and looking for love, leaving aside all the wonderful things that that they can do.

There are a LOT of kick ass women out there and so little stories about them. In my field work, I see many of these women, but, in tv, they are invisible. Or if they are on tv, mostly they are portrayed as -desperately- looking for love...

And I'm like: What??? I see this ladies being awesome and smart and building things, teaching, etc. But sadly in tv, most women are reduced to damsels in distress, young naive girls/older women looking for love, or just a plot device.

Sorry for the rant. Anyway, I look foward to this drama.

The worst thing for me is that even when they do have some totally kick-ass female, all of a sudden she gets totally helpless when her male counterpart is around. Mask had one horrible example of that - bad guy attacks the cop lady, and she just cowers helplessly while mask dude takes care of bad biker guy.

Your rant is on point, because you're 100% right!
I trust the casting of KHA- her characters are always engaging.

Kim Hee-ae as lead? Count me in! :) I am especially hoping she'll be a kickass badass tough female cop, unlike the disappointment that was Kim Sun-ah's character in Masked Prosecutor (although I blame the writing because her character was poorly written -- I expected badass and she ended up being a wuss who couldn't fight her way out).

And Oppa!! is in this now?! I'm stoked because he's more suitable for this type of character (no offense to Park Yong-woo). His Secret Door appearance as brooding badass fighter has me thinking he can bring it for this! :)

Ajumma Cop! If the word Ajumma was not funny enough, I find Ajumma Cop hilarious! I've watched too many cop/investigation dramas the last/this year.
Pride & Prejudice, You are Surrounded, I remember you..I need a break!

Am watching episode 2, and find it ridiculous that as a supposedly good cop she takes a young child to find a dangerous hardened criminal. She seems to do everything wrong and cannot exercise good judgment

Am seriously wondering if this series is worth watching. Anyone out there have the same misgivings?
