Criminal Minds promo galore with takedowns and stakeouts
The tvN remake of American series Criminal Minds is getting ready to premiere next week, and new posters and stills have been released showing the actors in their tough cop personas. The wordless teaser captures the upcoming thrills in store for us watching the NCI team, a specialized division of law enforcement that tracks down serial killers and other violent criminals by studying subtle behavioral patterns and psychological profiles. The copy on the second poster below reads, “We can stop them. If we think like them.”
Sohn Hyun-soo (Three Days) plays the level-headed leader of the six-person behavioral analysis unit, with Lee Jun-ki (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) playing his hotblooded, instinct-driven right-hand man and Moon Chae-won (Goodbye Mr. Black) as his cold logical left-hand woman. With their differing personalities, these two clash and bicker every time they see each other, but when it comes to catching a killer, they’ll come together with teamwork that shows focus and determination.
Lee Jun-ki’s character was a graduate of the elite police academy specializing in bomb defusion, and worked as a police investigator until he was recruited to be a member of the NCI forensic behavioral analysis unit. He’s full of jokes so people often regard him as shallow, but he has a heart that cares for each of his team members and his cases deeply.
Moon’s character is often misunderstood to be cold and haughty because of her blunt, straightforward way of speaking. But she’s more sincere and persevering than anyone when it comes to pursuing her cases. Despite coming from a wealthy powerful family of lawyers and experiencing frequent temptations to succumb to corruption, she’s stayed true to her principles.
Next to Moon, Lee Sun-bin’s (Missing 9) character is perceived to be infinitely warmer, which is necessary in her line of work as the team’s media specialist. She has a unique and friendly way of communicating so that people clearly understand her meaning and become entranced by her at the same time. Go Yoon (Monster) and Yoo Sun (Our Gap-soon) round out the other members of the team. Go Yoon plays a socially awkward genius behavioral analyst, who is the baby of the group (I guess he’s the Reed of the Korean remake).
There isn’t much more plot info in the teaser or stills, but I’m so excited already! We’re less than ten days away from the premiere of Lee Jun-ki’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Criminal Minds, which premieres on July 26.
