High-speed chases through the streets of Seoul in new Criminal Minds teaser
The second teaser for tvN’s remake of American cop procedural Criminal Minds has been released. Starring Lee Jun-ki (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo), Sohn Hyun-joo (Three Days), and Moon Chae-won (Goodbye Mr. Black), this drama promises to take us on a thrill ride as the criminal investigation team hunts down dangerous murderers using specialized behavioral profiling techniques.
The newly released teaser already looks action-packed with its barrier-busting car chases, prison beatings, and of course Lee Jun-ki’s martial arts stunts. As haunting music plays in the background, Sohn Hyun-joo says in voiceover that once a killer has gotten a taste for blood, he won’t ever stop. A bloodied woman wanders desperately down a dimly lit corridor, and brief scenes of a hooded knife-wielding killer, limp legs in bright red pumps, and gory fingernails are shown.
Three lines of text flash quickly between scenes, giving us a sense of the drama’s grand scale: “Terror,” “Psychopath,” and “Serial Homicide.” Afterwords, Lee Jun-ki says in his voiceover: “This is our work, and we need to overcome this.” A silhouette of the team is shown as they search for signs of evidence in the dark mountainside, and Sohn Hyun-joo closes out the teaser by saying: “If we save one life, we’re saving the world.”
Stills of Lee Sun-bin (Missing 9) have also been released; she’s the member of the NCI team who is in charge of everything related to media. Sometimes, they deliberately leak certain parts of the investigation to the press in order to play on the serial killer’s pride or trap them into believing they’re safe. Lee Sun-bin’s character is largely cheerful and optimistic, but despite her presence in the media spotlight, she harbors a secret. I’ve been impressed with the actress in both her previous works Missing 9 and Police Unit 38, so I’m looking forward to her performance in this new drama.
Criminal Minds will begin airing on Wednesdays and Thursdays starting July 26.
