The Lonely Shining Suspicious Partner

Suspicious Partner is back with more teaser goodness! The new SBS romantic-comedy drama stars Ji Chang-wook (The K2) as Noh Ji-wook, the No. 1 untouchable, sexy-smart prosecutor who is following the will of his father who fought crime all his life. Nam Ji-hyun (Shopping King Louis) plays Eun Bong-hee, the infinitely positive outsider and Judicial Research and Training Institute trainee. She used to be a national Taekwondo athlete when she was a child, but her spitefulness and guts led her towards the law. They both fall in love while working on a mysterious case where a killer has memory loss and continues to repeat the same murder over and over again. Hmm, this is giving me Memento vibes.

For this teaser, the production moved on from election parody to a drama parody of The Lonely Shining Goblin. In the teaser, Ji Chang-wook and Nam Ji-hyun are standing in a gymnasium and he starts reciting the same poem Gong Yoo recited in Goblin: “The Physics of Love” by Kim In-yook, which describes the feeling of discovering first love.

During his voiceover, she turns to face him with a loving expression. Ji Chang-wook extends his arms for Nam Ji-hyun to run into them, but instead she spin kicks him in the face. The last sentence of the poem changes from “It was first love” to “It was first SLAP,” with Ji Chang-wook lying stunned on the floor.

I have to say that Ji Chang-wook looks right at home in these romantic comedy teasers. I was first introduced to him through Healer and then The K2, which are both action dramas, so I’m looking forward to seeing his comedic side. So far I like what I see from the both of them in all the parody teasers, though the crown jewel was definitely the Goblin parody, which took a very earnest scene from Goblin and made it hilarious.

Suspicious Partner will premiere on Wednesday, May 10, following the end of Saimdang, Light’s Diary.

So Healer was kinda funny on purpose and he did a great job in the comedy of the show but K2 was funny cause it was so bad... not on purpose!

imo K2 was not that bad, but some JCW'a fans started to watch expected it could be something like Healer, and JCW also aside from action scenes, didnt really impressed in other scenes. Maybe he suits for romcom more. Romcom + action, not melo +action.

Haha...romcom+action! That's quite an apt description of Healer. I think JCW isn't suited for melo, his looks are great for romcoms. He doesn't really need to do anything, just deadpans and it will be funny.

Actually he was really decent in his recent movie, which was an action-melo. Lol I'm not sure K2 was the best assessment of his acting ability cos there were quite a lot of other factors that didn't quite do the drama justice...

I didn't find K2 bad, it just wasn't as good as Healer. I enjoyed both dramas.

Ji Chang-wook: I want to take a rest from action roles in my next project.
Drama Gods: Say no more! *gives action role to Nam Ji-hyun instead*

Someone please tell JCW to be more specific in making wishes. Drama Gods are tricky...

Right? I am wishing for it to be really good as well. I like the writer. I love NJH. I have yet to like/love JCW though. I enjoyed Healer just fine. He's okay for me. I did not watch K2 and for good reasons. I really want to love him and I hope this is the drama. From the teasers alone, I am already liking him in rom-com.

It is! I look at her smile here and wonder why people have such a hard time with a similar bright, wide smile from Joy. I'm not watching Liar/Lover but the pre-show comments about that actress's smile were harsh.

Ji Chang Wook is such a good fit to be a sexy-smart lawyer. I bet I will stare at the screen to look at his perfect facial figure when watching this new drama. I first saw him in Empress Ki, and he was so successful in portraying a comical naive emperor in many early episodes of this drama. I can't wait to watch this rom-com in May.

There have been a few Goblin parodies in dramas/teasers (e.g. Chief Kim), yet it seems to work every single time.

Can't wait for this one. I think starting from May to near the end of the year will turn 2017 into a fantastic year for drama after all.

As soon as I saw the words lonely and shining
I thought he was doing a Goblin Adaption.
Like what,soon after It's only been months.Regarding the parody the producer must be using the Goblin Fever to draw us in.Sadly,It's working and it absolutely has nothing to do do with Ji Chang Wook in a rom-com reciting love poems.Nope,nothing at all.

I remember seeing Ji Chang Wook in Smile, Donghae and marveling at how good-looking and talented he is. He wasn’t famous then yet. But I followed his works ever since, and wished he would gain more popularity. I made mental cheers whenever I saw that his dramas were a success. His popularity just continues to soar and I'm so happy. And now that he is transitioning to the rom-com genre after proving himself in the action department, I can't help but feel like a talent agent who is so proud of “discovering” such a gem of an actor in Ji Chang Wook. Lol. I'm just so proud of my baby :))

Hopefully after watch this I can finally watch Healer where Ji Chang Wook act cool without the weird feeling of ever saw him being dumb with Lee Kwang Soo on running man ages ago.

btw, the running scene reminds me of Oh hae yong

As if my expectations were already not unrealistically high, what with the perfect combination of IRY writer + NJH (adorable Bok Shil) + JCW (our resident Healer), and to top it off, they are coming out with such amazing teasers!
Dear show, please be good!
Because if you are not, the disappointment would be a little too much to handle!

Is this up against Ruler: Master of the Mask and 7 day Queen? Gosh, which am I going to watch first? Maybe Ruler for the angst and then this one to relieve all the emotions? 7 day Queen could be the dark horse 😎

I can't wait! I could not bear to see JCW in K2 because I liked Healer too much. K2 seemed to be the type of drama where you are looking for the same character and so you are bond to be disappointed (like Pinnochio, if you liked Park Su ah in I hear your voice). I really wanted to see him in another type of drama, with another type of character. And I have to say that I have a soft spot for NJH since Shopping King Louis...

Im surprised some say JCW cant do melo. HE has already proved himself. K2 didnt give him the chance to show it . they killed him with action. In fact song yoona was the best written character. he has shown in healer and more than that in empress ki how good he is . just check the first 15 minutes of episode 43

I'm not saying i didn't enjoy recent dramas but its been so long since i was really invested in a drama. I like everything the villain's description, the cuteness, the chemistry, the sassy female lead and ji chang wook's adorableness. I'm already squealing.
