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.
