A fiercer ajumma arrives to lead Mrs. Cop 2

Keeping in mind that we can’t judge much just from teasers, I am starting to think that rather than being a watered-down version of the original Mrs. Cop starring Kim Hee-ae, perhaps Mrs. Cop 2 may actually be an upgrade, with a more intense set of characters, a quirkier ajumma cop in the fabulously stylish Kim Sung-ryung, and a more action-packed focus. Not to mention: Kim Bum playing villain!

Either that, or just a better graphic design team?

The newest teasers give us an introduction to each of the main players of our cast, starting with Kim Sung-ryung as our haughty, hot-tempered new Mrs. Cop who objects to being called ajumma. She comes to the new team from New York — struts, rather — and has a knack for capturing criminals by studying their physiognomy (that is to say, reading their faces). The poster copy reads, “An even tougher ajumma has arrived!” Yes, and dressed to kill to boot.

Kim Min-jong plays the chief detective who wants to return to field action, while Im Seul-ong is the cop bursting with an energetic sense of duty and loyalty. Sohn Dam-bi seems to be a hothead as well (really, this seems like a whole team of hotheads), described as the badass tough girl of the violent crimes department, who doesn’t let up once she’s fixated on a target. I like that everyone on the team, including Mrs. Cop herself, seems a little bit of a wild card; they’re intense and a little off-kilter, which I find interesting.

Going fiercer (and perhaps even campier) seems like a good move for the series, because I always did think Season 1 played things more straight and serious than necessary. The series did moderately well in the ratings so it’s not like that format didn’t work, but I like my badass ajummas cheekier, and I think the show could benefit from a bigger spirit of fun.

Mrs. Cop 2 kicks off this weekend; it airs its first episode on March 5 and will be a Saturday-Sunday drama on SBS.

I'm okay with fierce and over the top. Just don't make them idiots.

That is what has ruined so many show that could have been very good. Sure, there are some incompetent cops (just like any profession), but when they portray everyone in the universe as stupid and corrupt except for the leads, it gets a bit tiresome.

I kinda just want JinWoo and DoYoung to make a cameo together, at least some kind of mention of Choi Young Jin and for this show not to suck in the logic department. That's all that'll get me to watch.

It's like she kept part of her quirkiness from Heirs in this character. :) I like it. (And no more shooting flying cars!)

You missed it then. It was a really good drama, a little slow in the beginning but then it pick up and kept right on going. This one will be difference but I am excited because it will keep you hooked with each episode. I can feel it, lol.

This reminds me of my office's IT team, which consists of 3 fierce unnies wearing high heels (of course, they don't have guns). Like, all the bosses from other departments can't hold a candle against these three ssen unnies lol.

I'd love it if they make the main female lead a strong sassy ajumma with wit and I love the fact that she can read faces instead of the i-will-shout-and-flip-the-table-if-you-don't-confess-to-the-crime type of ajumma :)

Also, Kim Bum! /swoon

Oh thank goodness. Kim Bum looks like he ate a sandwich. His face doesn't look gaunt, but he doesn't look as round as before his dramatic (worrying) weight loss for his previous show. So a nice compromise that's likely healthy and still very sexy.

well, I am glad that they are giving a chance to older bad-ass female characters. I hope they will actually let her be the hero and won´t push some male character to save the day at the end.

So what makes this cop a "Mrs." Cop? I thought the original premise of the first season was how she juggled taking care of her kid with her job. Does season 2 Cop have a kid?

The graphics do look awesome.

I've only seen Kim Sung-ryung in one drama, The Chaser, but I had some sympathy for her character then.

She looks great in the teasers. Totally pulling off the fierce, confident boss lady.

I feel sad and empty after I Have A Lover ended...... But this looks good too!

Cant wait for Saturday to come. Waaa. I love that SBS Weekend drama who seems to focus on female lead's part. previously Kim Hyun Joo is a stellar of IHAL (not discrediting other casts) and follow with Mrs Cop! ki\

I actually finished the Mrs. Cop.. Why?? I did really like the characters and their teamwork interactions. The case and story was not great but I stuck it out for the characters. But this season has Kum Bummie and even more bad a$$ lady cop that has dresses well - I'm in!

Smoking hot Momma Kim Sung-ryung as the lead? Gotta check this out. Needs a smart script to rock. She also needs a little more practice with the revolver, it looks a eavy for her wrist.
