Slow-mo firestorms and gunshots in Mrs. Cop 2

I just have to share this first teaser for SBS’s sequel (that’s really a spinoff) drama Mrs. Cop 2, because it’s made to look slick and stylish, but my main reaction is that it’s… funny? And I don’t know if funny is what they were going for?

In it, we see New Mrs. Cop Kim Sung-ryung (Queen’s Flower, Heirs) strutting onto a battlefield where her colleagues — Im Seul-ong, Kim Min-jong, Sohn Dam-bi — fight a crowd of gangsters. It looks like literal war, with explosions and raging fires and all-out chaos as the two sides go at it, and then Kim Sung-ryung, with nary a hair out of place, puts a halt to things by firing a gun in the air (and then having her fingers make the gesture for “two,” as in Season 2).

It’s all very eye-catching and everyone looks fab, but… is this a metaphor? I can’t imagine the actual show being all fistfights and flaming cars falling out of the sky. I’ll admit I find the teaser endlessly entertaining, but I’m thinking maybe not for the intended reasons.

The first Mrs. Cop was a modest ratings hit, but I always assumed that it was Kim Hee-ae’s star power and beloved-actor status that kept people tuning in. (The plot seemed fairly mundane, as far as cop dramas go.) I didn’t expect them to proceed with a sequel without her, but could see how Kim Sung-ryung would make it work — she’s fantastic too, capable of being nuanced and badass. It never seemed to be a show that had to have another season to continue its story, but maybe I’ll have to accept that where Mrs. Cop is concerned, just I don’t get it.

Mrs. Cop 2 will air as a 20-episode weekend series following I Have a Lover, and premieres in early March.

I think it's supposed to be funny? The action just seems over the top in the way that I've seen other funny-action sequences and the song is so overly dramatic...

Bahaha. I don't think she did but who knows?

Let's just hope the crash and burn cars aren't an indicator of how the show will do.

Oh, yeah, those 4 or 5 inch heels are sooo practical for police work. Should be standard issue.

Plus, if worse comes to worst, she can take it off and stab someone with it.

Fashionista plus.

LOL, I can see why Kim Hee-ae did not sign on for a 2nd season.

Maybe a metaphor for the casting process?

I didn't even finish Mrs Cop 1, but with Kim Sung-ryung in Mrs Cop 2, maybe I will give it a try. ;)

She shot a flying car. No wonder it fell and went into flames.

Hope that'll be a lesson to us all not to randomly discharge firearms in the air...

Please DramaGods, let Viki sub this so we can read the snarky comments at the top of the page. I see comedy gold in the making....meanwhile Kim Hee Ae pats herself on the back for turning this show down.
Small note to Javabeans: Shoulda filed this in the "Oh, Snap!" category. JMHO.

I'm too entranced by Kim Sung Ryung's get-up, particularly the sunglasses. Ideal cop uniform.
